HPE SimpliVity Review

I am backing up all my data in seconds


How has it helped my organization?

You have to manage so much hardware if you have IT systems, and each system has a different web interface, log, and reporting service. When you check all of them in a day, you don't have enough time for other work, but I can manage all the services from a single interface with SimpliVity. It saves me time.

What is most valuable?

The backup and restore features are the most valuable. Because before SimpliVity, I was backing up the data to an external hard disk. It worked slowly sometimes, and I had to wait for hours. But now, I am backing up all my data in seconds.

What needs improvement?

I think first we should make a hardware upgrade.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, it's stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No, it works well.

How are customer service and technical support?

I haven't needed technical support yet.

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

I was using classical storage, server technology, because it's not easy to manage all hardware capacity.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward.

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

The price should be cheaper.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I only looked at Nutanix and VMware vSAN, but SimpliVity is convenient for our systems.

What other advice do I have?

Anyone looking to implement it should do so without losing any time.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?

OmniCube CN-2400
