HPE Apollo Stability

It has been fairly reliable. In the beginning, of course not, but then we were a “baiter customer”, so in the beginning, there was nothing, literally there was nothing in the racks. We've been with it from the beginning and of course, in the beginning, it was less stable. However, it became more stable over time. If there's anything that hasn't been that stable, then it is the Lustre file system. I would say that they have made some improvements with that but this is not just a problem with bridges. We have computed the other supercomputing centers like San Diego Supercomputing Center in the past as well and Lustre seems to be just a little bit unstable overall. View full review »

Excellent product. It's extremely reliable so far. The loan-er model we have is excellent. We have had no problems with it. View full review »

It's pretty stable. We've only had very minor issues with it. No major downtime. The only issues we've really run into so far is that there is a shared battery for all cache controllers in the node. When you have to replace that element, you have to take down all three nodes and not just one. That's something of a design flaw, but it's the only real issue we've had so far. View full review »

Extremely reliable. We've been using it for three years now, and it's been in production without any downtime yet. View full review »

Very much a stable solution. No downtime yet. I think it's a configuration issue on our end but we have burned through quite a lot of the NVM system drives. The system does some swapping somewhere, so that has caused some issues. View full review »
