We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's easy to manage and configure. The configurations can be exported and imported to another solution."
"The solution is fast and inexpensive."
"The LAN features give us exactly what we need."
"ProCurve is easy to configure and to know how to create each connection and configuration."
"It has a lifetime warranty, that includes lifetime updates."
"The user interface is simple to use."
"The web page interface is very convenient and easy to use for setting up your feedback loops."
"The user interface is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us."
"The 40 gig backbone InterConneX was valuable for our use case. It is even faster now. QFabric has spine-leaf technology or topology, which basically makes every single hop only one hop away in terms of connecting from one device to another. It is a pretty good and robust solution. It works pretty well in terms of scalability, and their technical support is amazing."
"The only things that might need improvement would be the administrative tools and the graphical interface. The GUI could be improved on the administrative interface, for example."
"The solution doesn't have web-based management, which is why we've moved to a different solution."
"We do occasionally have issues with the solution and need to change out the switches sometimes. This can be due to the fan, but, in most cases, it's because the power supply was broken."
"Procurve would work better if it had more options like the web environment."
"If you make a change and you disconnect yourself from the switch, you will create an issue."
"I would like to see integration with HPE OneView."
"The dashboards could be improved to be more interesting."
"The solution should offer different gigabit interfaces. Right now, they have ten gigabits. However, for our needs, we only need one gigabit. We don't need 24 or 48 ports. We only need eight to ten. HPE should introduce into their portfolio some smaller and more compact options."
"They are working on the virtualization of the actual fabric layer. They are moving away from the original spine-leaf design to a different infrastructure. Instead of having three tiers, which was the director of the interconnected nodes, they cut them back, and they still have that kind of structure."
"You buy the switch and that's it."
"The cost of HPE ProCurve is good."
"The purchasing cost a few years ago for two units was approx €5,000."
"This is an expensive switch."
"The price of this product is cheap."
"HPE ProCurve products are reasonably priced."
"The price could be more competitive."
"In terms of price, the QFabric solution is going to be probably in the middle of the road for a fabric solution."
