What do you think of HPE ProLiant DL Servers?

Valuable Features It allows us to utilize the servers for VDI. The system supports two GPU's. • Improvements to My Organization It was part of a bigger solution, which is VDI. We are able to publish desktops for design engineers whose requirements are continuously changing on a weekly basis. • Room for Improvement I would like to look at Synergy for the new servers.

What is most valuable?

It is quite simple when you get it going. I like the blade concept that makes is so much easier to handle the servers.

How has it helped my organization?

We unfortunately have tried to used standardization using Ubuntu Linux and it's been hard. They had some difficulties getting the RAID configuration up and running because there are no drivers for it. It's not supported by HPE.
