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

Pros
With just one cable, for redundancy let's say two, you can feed sixteen servers in a single c7000 chassis.The virtual connect and network management port is a valuable feature.The benefit is the density and the capability for global harmonization on the hardware, because all the hardware chassis are the same. We can also purchase the same network cards too, chassis by chassis, so it gives us a global solution.They have served different needs for us from virtualized web servers to dedicated databases and application servers.They are reliable, and it's relatively easy to manage them. They also regularly provide patching for the servers.I really appreciate the integrated Onboard Administrator, the iLO (Integrated Lights-Out) modular network, and the SAN Switches.Virtual Fabric and interconnects are easy to configure and maintain.Wide choice in mixing SAN and LAN.

Superdome X is a system that can compete in terms of performance and uptime, but it's now standard. That is the great value. There are competitors like IBM, for example, but IBM has a propietary operating system. With Superdome X, you have a system that can run Windows, Red Hat, or VMware, but in a mission critical server.SDX gave us a very large RAM and we need that for the large-scale graph-handling applications.

Cons
The only side that must be improved is the active-passive interconnect module architecture.HPE BladeSystems is an old technology that cannot fit all of the dynamic organizational needs of our company.The scalability is limited because you only have a 16-server by chassis.There have been some hardware failures with them. These failures have since been solved by HPE support partners.The problem is that when want to expand with a new chassis, you have to do everything manually. It's not automatic.This product needs a wider range of firmware compatibility matrix from the oldest to the newest blade server.​Storage capacity could be enhanced.Higher bandwidth interconnects could be introduced.

I'd like to see the onboarding of some storage class memory to really expand the already very large RAM, into something that could be even much bigger.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The chassis itself, with no blade server inside, so expensive. The C7000 model costs around $100,000.​The price could be cheaper.Add OneView and ILO advanced to the base product. Don’t adjust the price, but just include them.The prices for the HPE Virtual Connect Modules are expensive compared to other I/O Modules available.With regards to the prices, they need to adapt to the current needs of the country.Their licensing program is pretty simple.
