HPE SimpliVity Review

It has improved our response time

What is our primary use case?

The primary use is to run the business, production, and Oracle.

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved our response time.

What is most valuable?

The rate of compression for the data in SimpliVity is the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

When we make some upgrades to the platform, it does take time to stabilize the structure again.

We would like a simple interface to use.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The platform works okay. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is okay. You only need to aggregate some nodes, then increase the capacity of the structure.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is okay. However, when we need to escalate issues to the next levels, they first go to India, then the USA. We do have some problems with the time zones.

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

We needed SimpliVity for our architecture. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was complex, because it was a new way of working. It was a disruption of technology. People has to learn the new way of working with the technology.

What about the implementation team?

We used an integrator for the deployment, who was good.

What was our ROI?

We have not seen ROI yet.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Dell EMC and Cisco.

We chose HPE based on its technology and cost.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend the product. It is good technology. The time and response of applications embrace the productivity of our enterprise.
