"This solution is very simple to use.""The user interface, reporting, and management are good, and we are quite happy with the performance.""The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to restore lost machines. Essentially its high availability capabilities are extremely valuable to us.""The flexibility is the most advantageous aspect of the solution. Our system has a very big environment. Due to this, the replication and backup operation is not an easy task. We prefer HPE SimpliVity modules in our environment, even when we have some different cases in operations.""Consolidation and duplications features."

Cons
"I'd like to be able to increase capacity.""The problem is with our configuration. We know we can use PowerEdge for hyper-convergence if we have PowerEdge and configure vSAN. We will be able to achieve what VxRail is being able to provide, but we need to migrate it to a new infrastructure instead of changing our existing. It will be much more difficult for us.""The scalability is limited with one chassis and the amount of storage it will give you, but it is mainly used for small offices.""Management of storage and networking is web-based, slow, and difficult.""It would be better to have a compact version of this solution for customers that have a small office and don't require a proper data center with power or an industrial type HP.""When we first started with this product, we had some difficulty with it."

"I would like to see better manageability and integration with third-party tools.""The interface is not fully integrated with the ESXi, which is something that could be improved.""The solution has a complicated front-end.""The solution needs to add NFS features.""The MTG inside HP could be improved."
