HPE Synergy Review

You don't need to have the storage and communications apart, because it's all consolidated

What is our primary use case?

We use it for ESXi installations. It is for private clouds with application servers.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us manage our IT landscape because it is easy, standard, and very consolidated. You don't need to have the storage and communications apart, because it's all consolidated.

The solution help us to implement new business requirements quickly, since it is easy and quick to upgrade our capacity.

The solution has affected the efficiency of our IT infrastructure teams by being easy to install.

What is most valuable?

It is very standard and easy to install.

What needs improvement?

I am rating this solution an eight (out of ten) because it is really good. However, you can always improve some things.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is very stable. We haven't had any problems with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is very good.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't used the technical support, as we haven't had any problems.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were using the c7000 blade system. We switched because we wanted to test something new. Also, it was announced that there would be other sales.

We have a capacity plan that we do every year. When we estimated what we needed for the current year, we decided that we wanted to invest in Synergy.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very easy.

What about the implementation team?

We used an integrator for the deployment. Our experience with them was very good.

What was our ROI?

It has kept our cost of operations stable.

The solution has reduced our IT infrastructure costs because we have had to buy less services than we used to.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated HPE and Dell EMC.

What other advice do I have?

It is a good solution. We are happy with it. You should try it out.

The development team is very happy with the performance.

Biggest lesson learnt: Try new things, even if it wasn't your first choice. Always look for new things, and if they're good, then you should change.
