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… 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… 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, compared to the public cloud. Obviously, there would be a… 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 the system. They have a pretty good technology, but… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

When we were in the market, we went everywhere. When you're in the market looking for a solution, you don't want to go for the first pick. It was a year-long project to find a provider. We based our… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution's most valuable feature is its ability to restore lost machines. Essentially its high availability capabilities are extremely valuable to us.

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to be easier to use. The administration's ease of use it poor and it needs a better administrative console. The solution has a complicated front-end. In terms of features, the solution is very complete. It doesn't seem to be missing features that I can see that would need to be added in future releases.

What other advice do I have?

I'm a consultant and have experience working with the solution both as a consultant and as an end-user. We currently have thousands of people using the solution. In our IT department, we have about ten to 15 people working on the solution as admins. I'd advise others to choose their use cases carefully. It's suitable for certain environments but not all environments. Others would also be sure to… more»

What is most valuable?

One of the valuable components in this solution is HPE Synergy, which is a useful tool for deployments and updates. This solution is very simple to use.

How has it helped my organization?

Improvements to the organization depend on the customer, but usually, it assists them with consolidation. For example, they're replacing server racks with the converged system because they have too little space to have a rack full of… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see better manageability and integration with third-party tools. I would like to see persistent memory deployed in this solution, as I have not yet seen it in any converged system.

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

This is an expensive system and not every customer has the kind of budget to support it.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

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, everything changed. Our applications are performing at their best and the backup times have been reduced from about… more»

What needs improvement?

We would like the system to be even faster.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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 have done our research and what we found is that nothing out there is comparable to HPE. Since it's working for us, 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.

What is most valuable?

The best feature of this solution is the backup system. I have found it to be particularly good because we've been able to restore on a file by file basis. The user interface, reporting, and management are good, and we are quite happy with… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The biggest improvement that we have seen is with respect to our backups.

What needs improvement?

The interface is not fully integrated with the ESXi, which is something that could be improved.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good solution and it seems to have everything that we need. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other options before choosing HPE ConvergedSystem. However, I was not involved in the decision so I do not know what the deciding factors were.
