What is most valuable?

They've had a commitment over the last five years to be amongst the most open out there. They are very easy to deploy and manage, and offer a lifetime warranty. Most other vendors who have tried this, have shied away from it. I think recently… more»

What needs improvement?

Building a bigger ecosystem around them, not just wired/wireless, but there's being able to bring other HP areas such as server and storage groups. At the moment, they operate as separate business areas, and they could clean that up a bit. Also… more»

What other advice do I have?

What do you think of HPE Ethernet Switches?

What is our primary use case?

These are core switches, so they handle the bulk of our network traffic from servers to the endpoints as well as SAN traffic.

How has it helped my organization?

They switch. They are capable of much more sophistication than we are able to support.  The addition of Aruba looks promising.

What is most valuable?

Simplicity and warranty. We are a small shop, and being simple is best. These are basic managed switches and the lifetime warranty is great.

What needs improvement?

It would be nice to have a common OS across models so that they could be managed together. But that is more in line with higher production equipment.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
