What needs improvement?

One thing that we find peculiar is, when you buy ConvergedSystem, it seems to be behind in the versions it supports. For example, vSphere 6 is just now being supported. OneView 2 is just now being supported, even though they have announced OneView 3. We're already a version behind. I know they're probably working and testing as quickly as they can, but we always seem like we're behind the curve with these new features that we know are out that we can't take advantage of and that are supported on the blades individually. They're supported on the blade system individually, but once you get the ConvergedSystem, all of a sudden, they're not supported. I understand that we want a rock solid infrastructure that's well-tested,... more»

What is most valuable?

For the converged system, HANA for SAP. OneView is very good too.

How has it helped my organization?

It begins with a simpler installation. It provides a more advanced way to approach enterprise IT. It's still a nightmare, like every other converged solution out there. But we have done data center consolidation and data protection, disaster... more»

What needs improvement?

We don't have any problems with it at the technology level. I can't think of any improvements they can make. I think they are doing pretty much what any other converged infrastructure services system can do. Perhaps faster allocation of... more»

What is most valuable?

The excellent service that we receive from the HPE team is very good with their hardware. The best value was in the service because we receive the solution as a managed service from HPE, so it's a box somewhere in the data center that we... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Right now, all of our BI initiatives are running on HANA so we use that daily to create a new promotion for the marketing team that is in the field. So they can use it once and based on the behaviour of each customer, we can provide new... more»

What needs improvement?

Something that we think should be better in the HANA converged solutions is all of the monitoring of the solutions. I think there is improvement space there, to have more data available for the final customer. And from the service point of... more»

What is most valuable?

One of the biggest things is, the fact that it can be a turn-key solution. With the ConvergedSystem system, you've got a small 2U platform that supports your storage, networking, and also has your compute in it. The other nice thing about it is, because it's a small form factor, you reduce footprint in your IT data center. It helps with power and cooling issues.... more»

What needs improvement?

My biggest pet peeve with the HC250 are the descriptions that they put on our parts list. For example, multiple times now someone asked me, they said, "Hey, they want to take this option off the quote," and I said, "No, it's required." Then they came back to me and they said, "You know the customer, they don't believe you," and I said, "Okay." Basically, with... more»

What do you think of HPE ConvergedSystem?

Primary Use Case We implemented a complete system and then 3PAR storage solutions. We are very happy with the implementation. • Improvements to My Organization We had an old system, but it got to a point, because of age, and the data limitations, that backup times and operations were taking too long. After we migrated to this environment, everything changed. Our applications are performing at their best and the backup times have been reduced from about four hours to 30 minutes. • Room for Improvement We would like the system to be even faster. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues Everything is intact, everything is perfect. • Scalability Issues We got it about three years ago. We have a policy that we don't scale. We use a system for about...
