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... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

We used to use Dell blades and we didn't have Virtual Connect, so configuring the networks and all of that for our servers took a lot longer. It's easier to provision the server now that we've moved to HPE and Virtual Connect, and how the... more»

What other advice do I have?

I think it's too soon to accurately rate the product. Based on experience so far and what I expect out of it, I'll give it an 8 (four stars). That's based on what I expect in the future and what I know it's capable of, not really our... 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... 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... more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is good. We have not calculated what hyper-converged infrastructure has brought us but I think there has to be some lower cost for us,... more»

What other advice do I have?

I don't think we are completely happy but we are not completely unhappy. We are right in the middle. It's not the system, it's the people behind... 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... 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... 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... more»

What other advice do I have?

You should consider the service, the stability of the solution and the cost for any solution that may benefit you.

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... 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... more»

What other advice do I have?

It would depend, but my advice would be that, if you're interested in a converged system, then go and buy it. However, it just depends on what the customer wants. You need to know what you want, because there are different solutions that... more»

How has it helped 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,... more»

What needs improvement?

We would like the system to be even faster.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Our company policy is that every five years we have to upgrade our equipment. Everything in our environment is HPE. Recently, some other vendors have been knocking on our door. We... more»

What other advice do I have?

I'm very satisfied with HPE systems. We don't have any issues with their hardware or their backup software.
