Pros
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.One of the really cool things about Superdome is, depending on the model you choose, you can put 8-16 blades in it.We've got a few of them, because we needed some really large machines. So far, they've been working pretty good.

It is first in class for composable infrastructure. It has the scalability that meets our future needs and the automation that builds into something that we are really looking forward to using.​The composable infrastructure allows us to build our own server profiles, then build up the infrastructure that we need from compute modules.Everything is combined in one chassis, you have storage, compute, networking. So you save a lot of space in the datacenter.Everybody noticed very large improvement in data processing. A lot of activity which took hours now takes, let's say, tens of minutes.We're able to provision different applications, different demonstrations, add cloud-like speeds on-prem, which is unheard of in the industry.Give us the ability to seamlessly migrate from one operating environment to another within minutes, which is invaluable.This is above and beyond anything else any of the competitors have on the market. If you're researching this, you're going down the right path.I believe, compared to the C7000, it delivers a significant amount of innovation and flexibility,

Cons
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.I know we support Windows and I think it's Red Hat, and I'd like to see more OSs supported.What would make it better from my point of view is if HPE spent more time on testing with the actual built-in Red Hat Linux drivers, as opposed to always trying to say, "Use our driver."

One of the issues that we that we have been having is with the firmware baselining. So, we need to just making sure that we get that working. However, we are in the early stages. It may well be that we just tweak a few things.​Because we're using 2012, we're having issues making templates.I think we were promised a little more than we were given. It's true, they are working very hard to try to help remedy that.When templates are created, there are some steps where you need to reboot the machines. Being in production, this is not a good idea. For example, if you reconfigure the network, you should not have to reboot the machine. You should just apply the new template and that's it.The deployment time of a system through OneView is pretty slow, but apparently that's being addressed in an upcoming update.The possibility of using storage directly in the frame in order to have bigger storage directly there, and not having an attached storage like SAN or NAS. That would be helpful.The update is problematic. When you want to update the firmware, or when you want to update software on Composer, it takes a lot of time. A lot.After delivering the contract, they became a little less active. So, it needs some pushing from my side sometimes.
