Good for network-based storage and stacks well, but security on the lower-end models should be improved
What is our primary use case?
We are a solution provider and the HPE Ethernet Switches are one of the network infrastructure products that we implement for our customers. They are used from edge to core and I usually implement them for storage traffic and IP over ethernet, like NFC, iSCSI, or SAS.
Pros and Cons
"The product's stacking technology is stable and works well."
"Authentication and other security features are not easily satisfied using the lower-end switches."
What other advice do I have?
Overall, the product works very well, we don't have any problems, and I can recommend it. Although people can have a lot of trouble with these switches, they are human management issues. This is why we are careful to choose the correct products and to do the implementation and integration correctly. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
