HPE SimpliVity Review

Good price, very stable, and scalable with useful compression and deduplication features

What is our primary use case?

It is used for managing the infrastructure. It is combined with VMware software. We are using HPE SimpliVity Generation 10.

What is most valuable?

The compression and deduplication features are most valuable because they allow us to have a small footprint for storage. It is a very stable product, and we are also able to get all that we need in terms of reporting.

What needs improvement?

They should optimize the administration stack because it is consuming too much memory. It ends up consuming 20% of memory. They have another product for this feature, but I would like to have this feature within HPE SimpliVity.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is a very stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable. Everybody in our organization is using this solution because internally, all our applications are running on it. We have around 50 users and 5 administrators.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using HPE BladeSystem.

What about the implementation team?

We worked with a provider, and he installed it.

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

It is not expensive. We bought its license for two years. For support, we pay yearly.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. We plan to keep using it.

I would rate HPE SimpliVity an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
