Quotes From Members Comparing CA Spectrum vs HPE OneView

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It helps our NetOps group actually handle alarms in a way that lets them see the bigger picture of those alarms, and how they might affect our services. It helps us communicate information about the network state better to services that might be impacted by a specific network condition.As the kind of enterprise that straddles the line between telco size and enterprise size, it scales for us, because we're not all the way at telco yet.​It covers a lot of different types of hardware. It can do a lot and saves us time.​It is very stable. We have not had any major issues in over 10 years.​The stability of the product is key. It never breaks, really. The stability and reliability of the Spectrum product have been top-notch.​I can use it to detect whenever things go wrong on my network.We can plan changes and replacement of end-of-life products in our environment very well because it's very accurate.Spectrum does such a great job of discovering our network that we have a high confidence in what our inventory is.

Broad range of tools to create executive and operations dashboards.Gives the business interfaces to view real-time pictures of IT business services.It gives us a view of all our servers, which we did not have before in real-time.​The stability is very good. I have never had an issue with it over the three years that I have been using it.Deploys faster new virtual services.The template management makes the deployment of the firmware updates much faster.​We cannot function without this solution. ​By being able to deploy servers very quickly and rapidly, we can respond to any business requirement needed.

Cons
The Spectrum OneClick is a Java-based client, and that's aging. Really, before any new feature integration, I'd love to see a comprehensive rebuild of the UI.The upgrade process could be smoother. More of the steps around upgrading could be automated.A better integration with the UIM, as far as being able to do root cause analysis and that type of analytics.Needs better integration with all the other products in the Agile suite of tools; anything they could do to make that less complex, would be great.If nobody else has said the documentation needs improvement, let's go there. I understand, you can either write about it or you can do it. And most of us would rather they do it, but now that they've done it, those of us that didn't do it, we need to go and find: "Where did they write about this to tell us how to do it?" That's always lacking.We have had one support issue that's been open for a couple of months, and it is currently open.​I would like to see them eliminate the Java console. The user interface for this is a Java applet that runs on your desktop, and it is very problematic for us.We have had some issues with the spec server and the high availability replication of data. It fails over well, but it does not come back very well. We get duplicated events.

I think HPE could make more user-friendly interfaces, exclude Java and move to an HTML5 platform, make more detailed documentation, and lower the price.​I have to chop it up into smaller parts, because I have an installation in Europe and it covers the whole world. That is not so good. They need to be more localized, so I am going to chop it up into smaller bits.​I had some minor difficulties with upgrading, but the solution still works fine.Use it, but do not think it is going into the clouds, because it is not. There is room for improvement.​​There was a feature called HPE cloud manager, but now it is owned by Micro Focus. HPE should make a cloud optimizer again.​I saw, maybe three years ago or two years ago here, or in Barcelona, at the HPE Discover conference, a feature that you can update Clusterware with VMware. But the feature is still not live in production. Currently, you have to do all the firmware updates and then you have to do the VMware updates. So you have two reboots and it would be better if it was just one.​We have a version 3 and a version 1.2, but the upgrade process from the 1.2 to the 3 is kind of an issue.​Technical support is not very good. The engineers do not know a lot about the product​, even when asked simplistic questions.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of some of these products are a little cost prohibitive, which is unfortunate. We have to find lower cost solutions for some of the things that we have to pull in. For the most part, CA has capabilities in pretty much everything that you would need. You just have to figure out where are you going to spend the most money for what you have to actually get done. You can do all these things but, which ones do you have to do? And that's hard to choose sometimes because you want to do them all.

HPE could lower the price.​Use it. It is free.​I am happy with the price.HPE had some other solutions, but they were actually quite expensive to buy. So, when OneView came along, it was kind of reasonable in terms of price for licenses, etc.
