HPE SimpliVity Review

It is a simple, self-managed product which makes my job simple

What is our primary use case?

We use it for hosting stuff for clients.

How has it helped my organization?

It easily backs up our systems, allowing us to recover them.

It makes my job simple.

What is most valuable?

  • It comes all in one box.
  • It is simple and easy to use.
  • Everything works as advertised.

What needs improvement?

HPE could give us more options for server models to chose when using the product. Right now, we can only use the DL380.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is self-managed.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability may be a little limited. It depends on what we select with it.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't had any issues or problems with the technical support. They help us by setting up a demo and making sure everything functions correctly with the product before we ship it to the client.

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

Our previous solution was hardware, not a one box solution. It had multiple servers.

It was time to upgrade the client's solution. We chose to go with this solution because it was a small market client.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. It was simple to set up. After setting it up, it was easy to manage.

What about the implementation team?

We used HPE for the deployment. Our experience with them was great.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are an HPE shop. Most of the stuff that we have is HPE, so there was only one choice for us.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend buying this product. It is a simple, self-managed product.
