We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The CloudVision Portal allows us to centrally manage all of our Arista products."
"QoS is the most valuable feature because our clients work with VOIP and Critical applications."
"It's easy to manage and configure. The configurations can be exported and imported to another solution."
"The solution is fast and inexpensive."
"The LAN features give us exactly what we need."
"ProCurve is easy to configure and to know how to create each connection and configuration."
"It has a lifetime warranty, that includes lifetime updates."
"The user interface is simple to use."
"The web page interface is very convenient and easy to use for setting up your feedback loops."
"The user interface is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us."
"I would like to see a version available with eight or sixteen ports."
"One of the issues that we have been faced with here in Brazil is that we don't have any list times for delivery."
"The only things that might need improvement would be the administrative tools and the graphical interface. The GUI could be improved on the administrative interface, for example."
"The solution doesn't have web-based management, which is why we've moved to a different solution."
"We do occasionally have issues with the solution and need to change out the switches sometimes. This can be due to the fan, but, in most cases, it's because the power supply was broken."
"Procurve would work better if it had more options like the web environment."
"If you make a change and you disconnect yourself from the switch, you will create an issue."
"I would like to see integration with HPE OneView."
"The dashboards could be improved to be more interesting."
"The solution should offer different gigabit interfaces. Right now, they have ten gigabits. However, for our needs, we only need one gigabit. We don't need 24 or 48 ports. We only need eight to ten. HPE should introduce into their portfolio some smaller and more compact options."
"The only licensing costs are for CloudVision, although the upfront price of the device is not cheap."
"The price is not that good, but our clients value the solution despite the price."
"You buy the switch and that's it."
"The cost of HPE ProCurve is good."
"The purchasing cost a few years ago for two units was approx €5,000."
"This is an expensive switch."
"The price of this product is cheap."
"HPE ProCurve products are reasonably priced."
"The price could be more competitive."
