We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Among the valuable features are that it's a complete solution, it's easy to use, and there is not a lot of management time involved in operating the solution.
A very small package but with lots of memory and CPU.
The biggest benefit of this solution is that If you use it, you can use it for the company headquarters and also for all the branches. You use the same system, only a smaller size. With SimipliVity you can also use the included backup solution. You don't need any other solution to back up the data or to transfer it.
The most valuable aspect of the HPE SimpliVity is the DL380 G10. We have mostly been using VMware and Hyper-V. On one side we have Hyper-V and the other side we have the VMware.
The scalability is its most valuable feature. It's also able to do stretch clustering.
The solution's simplicity is its most valuable feature. The usability is also good.
The rate of compression for the data in SimpliVity is the most valuable feature.
As a point for optimization on our infrastructure, it works great for us.
The main benefit of using the solution is for the performance it provides.
The automation and provisioning of the environment, as well as the centralized monitoring, have all improved over the years.
I would like to see it be a truly hybrid-cloud solution where I could take my on-prem SimpliVity environment and have replication to a cloud install.
I would like them to add more connection capability, a hub and spoke model, to improve the number of connections that it can handle.
The price is quite high. The system could also be more scalable.
A lot of our customers are using VMware and also are using Hyper-V. Hyper-V is not very stable on the HP SimpliVity.
I would like to see it able to restore item levels, especially for databases.
The initial setup was a little complex because we were in the first version, fresh releases.
When we make some upgrades to the platform, it does take time to stabilize the structure again.
The initial setup was complex. It took a few months to integrate and adapt to the new platform.
The solution needs to add a network virtualization feature similar to that of VxRail. If they could implement that, it would be great for the product.
The solution is prone to disk failures. This needs to improve. Over the past four years we've had to replace about six of them. They've failed almost every three to six months.
Pricing and Cost Advice
We're paying $3,000-$4,000 a month.
It's about $10,000 monthly.
For three years, it is $60,000 for three nodes. It is quite pricey.
The only thing that I think we are paying for is the VMware licenses, but we are enterprise, so it is not horrible.
For the VMware licensing, it is approximately $10,000 a year.
The time savings on the administration side of things is huge. We had somebody who was dedicated pretty much full-time to hardware, and now, they spend about a quarter of their time a year on hardware-related issues.
Upfront costs seems high at first look, but after analyzing all the benefits of SimpliVity, we have come out ahead.
It has helped to reduce our VMware licensing costs due to host consolidation.
