"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.""I have not had any issues with our Brocade switches."
