HPE SimpliVity Review

Setup easy, stable, and very fast at setup and operating


What is our primary use case?

I use the solution for virtualised infraestructure of servers.

How has it helped my organization?

HPE Simplivity improved the space of disk with deduplication, reduced the time of backups and recovers.

What is most valuable?

One of the key features is the solution is really fast for backups and deduplication is amazing.

What needs improvement?

It would be good to have more compatibility with other solutions as an improvement in the future. As a suggestion, in order to have compatibility with other solutions, there could be a license fee for this, and if you don't need to them then you do not need to pay.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good but you need to pay for the additional nodes that can be expensive. We are currently using the solution for one thousand people in our organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

They could have better-specialized support for more countries.

I rate the customer service of HPE SimpliVity a seven out of ten.

How was the initial setup?

The setup is very easy.

What about the implementation team?

We have three nodes around the country and it took just one week for the deployment.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution can be expensive if you are using a lot of nodes.

What other advice do I have?

I would advise those wanting to use this product to be careful before setting up the solution that you have enough disk space, if you do not, you will have to pay for it which is expensive.

The solution works great, it is amazing.

I rate HPE SimpliVity a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
