We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The GPU units, processor speed, and capabilities are most valuable. Desktop video conferencing is also valuable. It supports desktop video conferencing much better for graphics."
"This solution is perfect. From the time of purchase, it was state-of-the-art, and still, after five, 10 years, they still meet our demands extremely well."
"Its reliability and after-sales support are very good."
"The most valuable feature is stability."
"We have had no issues with the stability of the product."
"The initial setup was easy."
"The feature that I find the most valuable is that all alerts are integrated with HPE InfoSight. Any problem related to an HPE server can be solved remotely at L1, L2 level."
"It is stable and easy to manage."
"Configurations could be simplified."
"They should work with Microsoft to make licensing costs better. That's because the physical servers have processors with all these cores, and Microsoft now licenses Windows virtual server desktops based on the number of cores and the serving servers. So, if you got to build 10 or 20 servers on that desktop, you got to license them all with Microsoft. They should have a partnership with Microsoft to decrease the virtual licensing of servers in partnerships so that when you purchase the servers, you also get licensing for Microsoft on top of them. That's because it gets very expensive to license virtual operating systems to run on physical servers."
"Sometimes, there are connectivity issues and the server is not able to connect to our SAN."
"The technical support is pretty good, however, they could be a bit faster and more responsive."
"The solution should work to be more scalable."
"The most pressing issue is that downloads depend at present on the current period."
"The technical support could be a little faster."
"The implementation should be simplified, it is not straightforward."
"The shipment time can be improved. When we order Intel products, we have to wait for a long time. They can increase the local services and engineers in China. Local engineers will be able to know and understand customer problems much better."
"The price of the product is a little high."
"The hardware should be cheaper."
"The solution comes with a one time perpetual license which is included with the server."
"They need to work with Microsoft to make the licensing costs better and more efficient."
"It is not expensive. Its price is similar to other solutions."
"We have ILO licenses. We use this feature."
"HPE ProLiant DL Servers are one of the best-selling solutions in this industry. There is not a license required for this solution."
"It is not expensive."
