We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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."

"We've had issues with the power supply. I've had to change the power supply twice. I'm not sure what the issue is. We're still trying to work out why we're having problems with the switches and the cutting of the power supply. The solution should look into this to see if there is something wrong with the product.""The technical support for this solution could be improved.""Some of the features needed to set up the solution are too complex. There's a lot of technical information that is required.""It's difficult to manage the WiFi on the edge switches in the same console.""The VPN technology in Ubiquiti products is really difficult for beginners who do not have the right skills.""In terms of improvement, sometimes we have bugs.""It would be helpful to have better visibility into exactly what is going on in the network.""The management of this product needs to be improved."

We have deployed a few Ubiquiti UniFi Switches in New Zealand, and they are a value for money. They are cheaper and stable, but if you have the budget, I would recommend Meraki switches.""The price is reasonable.""The price of this product is cheap.""The price of the solution is fair compared to others. However, it is expensive."
