What do you think of HPE Superdome X?

Valuable Features We've got a few of them, because we needed some really large machines. So far, they've been working pretty good. • Room for Improvement 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." • Stability Issues The stability is pretty good. • Scalability Issues It's scaling where we need to go. The issues we have are more the application not scaling; application design issues, not hardware issues.

I have one customer in Belgium that I know that is testing it, and they're quite happy about it. There are some challenges, but it is software. For software, you have developers. The hardware is there.

What needs improvement?

With the changing IT demands, they need to change more often and faster. We need applications to model tomorrow’s needs. We need more applications for changing users. There is a need for a more optimized infrastructure. For instance, I have a customer with 20 blade enclosures. In those 20 blade enclosures, there are 40 management modules that you need to update... more»
