It makes it easy to manage everything.""We are able to customize this solution based on the customer's requirements.""Enables direct access to clusters.""The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper."

"The initial setup was really straightforward and easy.""The technical support is good.""There's a zone for each server and services in the storage.""It has good integration with HPE Primera. They have smart zoning in which the administration is very easy. You don't have to do anything. Zoning and other things are done automatically if you just enable the smart zoning. That's one very good thing in HP."
