HPE Hyper Converged Scalability

Mohamad Charara

HPE Hyper Converged supports up to 60 nodes. It is scalable, but we have to use the HPE OneView solution and have it to pass through vCenter. This consumes 10 cores of CPUs, which compromises performance. Dell EMC VxRail supports up to 32 nodes, but is more futuristic and easier to scale. If you want to scale up, you just plug the nodes, then the cluster will detect the new node and configure it. View full review »

We require scalability for accomplishing financial requirements in customer accounts, as well as for augmented media and resources. HPE Hyper Converged is very scalable. I can expand the space on the disk simply. If the need for computational capacity increases, I can add a new server and increase the amount of RAM and CPU. I can increase the RAM and CPU allocations without disruption of business operations for the customers in just a few simple steps. View full review »

I believe the solution is scalable, but the license gets more expensive if you add more users. And then you also need more hardware from HP when you scale. You need the license from vSphere, from VMware, and then it costs a lot. That makes us wonder if it is really the best solution for us. I, therefore, think it is just too expensive to scale.

Scaling the solution is simple. You simply need to add the resources, such as CPU or memory storage. It works like a cluster. If you have two nodes, then a third node can be added to the existing cluster. View full review »

It fulfills all my needs. All the things I need to scale everything up is possible with the solution. It depends of course on how many users have already used it. I have no plans to increase, but the solution allows for growth. I just don't actually use it today. View full review »

The scalability is good. Right now we are deploying our production environment and our plan is to do the same in the DR environment also. We plan on increasing usage in the future. View full review »

In terms of scalability, a lot has been done so it's quite easy to add additional load. Since it is only a testing system, there is a relatively small number of people using the solution right now. Less than 10 people are using it. View full review »
