HPE StoreEasy Review
Easy to use, good reliability, and it includes a Windows license that makes it easier for Active Directory integration
What is our primary use case?
We had some trouble with equipment in our NAS solution and we are evaluating HPE StoreEasy as a replacement. We have a capacity problem for our file servers because our user data is growing so much. Our goal is to keep the user data separate from the server data.
How has it helped my organization?
This solution allows me to better and more easily manage user data without impacting my primary storage.
What is most valuable?
This solution is convenient and easy for us to use.
It ships with a Windows license included and because we have Active Directory in our domain, it makes it easy for us to operate.
The reliability is good.
What needs improvement?
We need some monitoring tools and it would be helpful if they were included. I would like to have the ability to monitor the system at any point in time.
For how long have I used the solution?
We have been testing HPE StoreEasy for the past 15 days.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
This is a reliable solution.
How was the initial setup?
The deployment took about one week.
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?
This is an economical solution for the company and I am satisfied with the pricing.
Which other solutions did I evaluate?
I have compared the Dell EMC Isilon and I think that the HPE StoreEasy solution has some advantages over it.
What other advice do I have?
We have just started with HPE StoreEasy but I am looking forward to working with it. I am satisfied with the technical details and to me, it seems like one of the best solutions available.
I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
