HPE Synergy Review

Everything is combined in one chassis - storage, compute, networking; saves space

What is our primary use case?

My primary use case was to familiarize myself with this new HPE product because I know it is a replacement for the old C7000 chassis, so for me it was interesting to see the new features, to know the product as a whole.

How has it helped my organization?

Everything is combined in one chassis, you have storage, compute, networking. So you save a lot of space in the datacenter.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable is the OneView interface. You can do all the management steps you need to do to configure it, and you can see everything for management, for error reporting, monitoring, etc.

What needs improvement?

I don't know because this was the first time I've seen this product and I'm not very familiar with it. I need some time to work on it, to play with it.

For how long have I used the solution?

Trial/evaluations only.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I cannot say. I would need to test it in a proper environment.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

From what I've tested, it looks scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

We are very pleased with the support of HPE.

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

We used other HPE products.

How was the initial setup?

It was easy to follow the guides. It was straightforward.

What other advice do I have?

The most important criteria for me, when selecting a vendor, is support.

I would tell others to give it a try.
