Significantly reduces our backup times

What is our primary use case?

We implemented a complete system and then 3PAR storage solutions. We are very happy with the implementation.

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.

Increases performance, streamlines recovery time, but the transformation is complex

What is our primary use case?

We don't do everything converged. We actually do converged infrastructure for particular servers. Everything that is software-defined, we do through our converged infrastructure. The core is converged but we don't do anything else besides that. We only do it to provision our servers. Our Infrastructure is actually converged at the server level, it's not converged at the network devices level and the like. We still go through hybrid and conventional for that.

Pros and Cons

    • "Perhaps they can work on providing faster allocation of memory or storage."

    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 they don't have people who know how to handle it. That's the problem. I am not saying I'm an expert on hyper-converged or on converged systems, but I have to say that for some issues, we had to roll up our sleeves and do it ourselves. In terms of advice, if you are considering converged infrastructure, you should become educated first on what it is. To begin with, it is one that isn't going away. But…

    The simplicity of it helps people who aren't necessarily IT specialists to use it.

    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 support different workloads and things.

    The most valuable feature was in the service because we receive the solution as a managed service.

    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.

    Everything has been stable.

    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 experience so far because I know we've had some bumps in the road. Again, I think some of them are our fault. I don't want to blame HPE for that. I think it's a solid product. I've used HPE blades in the past at a previous employer. They've always been rock solid. I believe in the hardware. We've been using HPE storage at my current company for three years. I used…

    We needed the ability to load our large volume tables quicker in order to process and deliver insights.

    What other advice do I have?

    Given that it’s a new system and technology, it was critical that we found a vendor with experience and a strategic partnership with SAP. Speedy implementation was very important for us because we were moving the paradigm. You can’t do a big data implementation and have it be slower than your traditional approach to data. We wanted to showcase speed and acceleration and quicker time-to-market and value. That was a very important differentiator for us. We also tried to understand the right business use cases in which ConvergedSystem is a differentiator. Prior to discussions about SAP HANA or…

    For us, the most valuable features include: High Availability and the ability to add Serviceguard on top as a solution.

    What other advice do I have?

    Look for a full solution from end to end. You also want mission critical support. We also needed a vendor with a lot of experience with the product who can help us with the migration. It's hard to find the good ones. Be sure to dig deeper than hardware. Resellers take advantage of flash storage, but they don’t really have expertise. Nutanix has a great presentation and pricing, but don’t deliver. HP is on the right track and is the way to go.
