HPE SimpliVity Review

Simple, scalable, and comes with good tech support

What is our primary use case?

We use it for VDI.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us in supplying desktops to users.

What is most valuable?

The solution's simplicity is its most valuable feature. The usability is also good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is good and simple.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support at HPE has always been really good, with anything I've done with them.

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

We used Cisco HyperFlex. It was just another system that was brought to our attention by a different reseller. SimpliVity was introduced to us by sales and we needed something like that.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was a little complex because we were in the first version, fresh releases.

What about the implementation team?

We used a reseller and our experience with them was great.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at NetApp but they couldn't do stretch clustering.

What other advice do I have?

Evaluate it.

In terms of rating the solution, I have to go with an eight out of ten. A ten is hard to get from me. There's no perfect system and every system has its little hang-ups and issues.
