It's truly effective and it's always on. We've tried other manufacturers who claimed particular purposes for their servers, but we never got any decent results from them. We tried HP servers a few years ago and we've come back to it. It's perfect for what we do.
Improvements to My Organization
For us, it's change in continuities where we've seen the most improvement. Each time we move new hardware, it's more and more effective. Everyone on the team is familiar with the hardware, so we don't have to teach them everything. It's simple for us to operate as a team, which is of primary importance for us.
Room for Improvement
It seems that when we have a single problem, it's a fight with the hardware. We get the package and we do the assembly. This takes us a week or more, and that's a problem. It takes too much time.
Deployment has been issue-free.
It's very stable. That's a main factor for us.
We're able to scale it, though we're mainly adding older servers to this new one. Scalability is not the most important thing for us.
Customer Service and Technical Support
Technical support has been good. We work in sensitive environments and technical support has been a positive point.
Initial setup was straightforward.
We implemented it ourselves in-house.
Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing
HP maybe seems sometimes more expensive than others, but we stay with them and we know why.
