What is most valuable?

* High availability * Speed of execution * IO capabilities

How has it helped my organization?

It is an open system with an HP-UX. It is very close to the Linux operating system, but much more reliable. That is why we have chosen it.

What other advice do I have?

Migrating away from Unix is driven by SAP themselves, because they are moving towards HANA, and HANA only runs on Linux. If you are looking for this type of solution, evaluate all options, including growth, then choose the right systems for your company. Most important criteria when selecting a… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Yes, we looked at other options but this solution provided the best value for the money. Also, we chose this solution because it was the right solution for the operating system that we had at the time.

What do you think of HPE Integrity?

What is most valuable?

HP-UX stability Platform support

How has it helped my organization?

It used to be the finest for running Oracle – now mostly serve middle tier.

What needs improvement?

Intel should announce the product roadmap or HPE should announce HP-UX for Intel X86_64 (HP-UX for Superdome X).

For how long have I used the solution?

Since 2007.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Integrity blades have very complex hardware diagnostics when compared with non-converged Integrity platforms. Blade system backplane is SPOF.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not as such.

How are customer service and technical support?

An eight out of 10. Backline engineers are able to figure out 90% of the issues through logs.

What do you think of HPE Integrity?

What is most valuable?

I think the most valuable features that my management usually worries about are price, reliability, and its ability to be repaired and/or debugged.

What needs improvement?

We're moving away from Integrity as it's more pricey than the Intels.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is pretty good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's scaling where we need to go.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was relatively straightforward.

What is most valuable?

We used to use HP-UX and Integrity for the high linear demand on Oracle. For multi-threaded stuff, we used Solaris. But where there was a single thread with high demand, the Solaris boxes were no… more »

How has it helped my organization?

HP-UX was fast on linear demand. We used to look at applications coming through the front door. We'd analyse whether it was highly threaded or a strong linear demand, and make a choice of HP-UX or… more »

What needs improvement?

The last problem we had with VSC VMs was no support for Cisco PVLAN. That was a bit of an issue for us 18 months ago. But I think it supports PVLAN now. But, we're moving to x86. We are still… more »

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

At the time, if you wanted something highly available, there was SPARC on Solaris and Integrity from HPE. x86 wasn't seen to be good enough to run crown-jewel systems for the organisation. That's why… more »

What other advice do I have?

Don't do it. Go x86.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn’t try anything else. We had a twin vendor policy at the time, so we never fully invested in a single vendor. We chose SPARC and HPE. IBM would have been in the mix, but we didn't choose IBM… more »

What is most valuable?

It's very reliable. It's an old technology so it's very reliable, efficient, and strong. At the time that we used it, it was scalable so we were able to put as much CPU as I wanted up to 64. Now it's something different, but that's… more »

How has it helped my organization?

We're able to increase when the customer has growth needs and requirements, we're able to add more functionality on the same hardware without investing or purchasing more, just by the scalability of it, were able to do that faster.

What needs improvement?

It is old technology, so there is not much growth that we can do on it now. If we need to add more, we have already reached the maximum on that Superdome, plus it's huge. It takes a lot of space in the data center power. So it's not from a… more »

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

I came in after it was installed.

What other advice do I have?

I doubt anyone would be using or looking at Superdome now, at this point, and they will look at something more scalable and advanced and so on. I'm not sure people really are this relevant to Superdome discussions.

What is most valuable?

The Integrity is the most reliable server that I have. I run production on this server, and I feel very comfortable with it.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps us to provide timely responses to our customers, and provide high availability in our products.

What needs improvement?

The quantity of the processor from Integrity, because at this moment there's a limit. We just provide 32 cores, and we are thinking of increasing the number of cores which is not possible in the current devices.

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

It is easy because all our production environment run on Integrity. When we need to increase, we buy Integrity solutions. We don't have to look at any other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

We are very comfortable with it and confident with the service that we provide with Integrity. You need to work with a partner that knows the solutions deeply, in order to implement the services and the solution.

What is most valuable?

We've been with Superdome since Superdome 1 and then we used Superdome 2. We are a large service provider for the Indian region, Northern part of South America and Central America, around the SAP Ecosystem. So all our infrastructure is Hewlett-Packard, we've been a platinum partner for… more »

How has it helped my organization?

As a service provider, our end customers have looked into us as the company to rely on to manage their core business. So Superdome essentially as the high end platform in the Integrity line has been the way we have given our customers the best platform to run the core business because they're not… more »

What needs improvement?

It's hard to say in terms of improvement, I mean. With the announcement last year from Hewlett-Packard Enterprise that they are no longer supporting a Itanium 2 processors, which means HP-UX is going to die soon in a couple of years. Definitely we need to move to Superdome X, or at least think about… more »

What other advice do I have?

I would say go for it. Superdome X, if it's as good as the one we've had with the Superdome on the Integrity line, if it took parts of it or if the hardware is similar, I would say go for it.

What is most valuable?

The Integrity Platform has for a while been HP's high availability platform. We've used all of their servers in different models to run all our HP-UX customers. We've also used the ProLiant SS, industry de facto for customers not requesting high availability environments. The added value of Integrity has always been the reliability of the processors and all the parts in the servers. They've… more »

How has it helped my organization?

When I talk about Integrity and Superdome, I would have to say we feel the same because Superdome is the top of the line of the Integrity server line, so basically we use the Integrity servers for the largest customers with requests of a high availability platform. All of them have been very happy. We have loyal customers that have been in a hosting business model with us for more than 10 years… more »

What needs improvement?

I don't know if Integrity will survive too much because if the Itanium processors are not going to be supportive anymore, I think in the midterm (4 or 5 years), Integrity's going to be replaced by another product line, or HP's going to be moving in more product lines, Plaza Polo and Moonstruck and all the initiatives, but according to what I know Integrity lined with the Itanium 2 processors and… more »

What do you think of HPE Integrity?

What is most valuable?

We need to be able to offer our customers continuous service 24/7. We also need to be able to sync between the different methods of banking -- mobile and internet systems -- that we run through data. We're able to do all this with Integrity.

What needs improvement?

It's quite expensive, so we're considering moving some services to Linux services.

For how long have I used the solution?

It's for databases and transaction servers in our bank environment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's always stable. Our system has a lot of good resiliency, so we have a very good, very stable system with it. Stable. Of course. Always stable. We have a lot of good resiliency on our systems, so we have a very, very, good and stable system.

What do you think of HPE Integrity?

Valuable Features:

The RAS features at application, file, OS, hardware, and memory levels. High I/O throughput of both storage-layer and networking.

Use of Solution:

I assisted customers with deploying the solution since HP started selling Integrity systems.

Deployment Issues:

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues:

It's a highly stable environment. The NPAR and VPAR technology combined with HP-UX is a solid solution.

Scalability Issues:

It's got good scalability.

Initial Setup:

The Integrity series combined with the software layer presents an excellent Mission Critical landscape that brings simplicity in a complex landscape to the foreground.

What is most valuable?

* Availability * Performance

How has it helped my organization?

HP used the IA CPU and replaced the PA-RISC. The IA has helped the HPUX perform better and covered all the bits those were exposed with PA-RISC.

What needs improvement?

Since Intel featured this product as a mainframe class, it should perform closer to a mainframe. Secondly, there should be some initiative regarding bias of Oracle towards HP integrity servers.

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

I have been using SUN S6900, HP Proliant and IBM X series servers for SMB and tier 1 and 2 in large corporates. Integrity solutions are vendor specific so support is very specific as well.

What other advice do I have?

The true benefit of this hardware platform comes with HPUX implementations.

What is most valuable?

We currently deployed HP Intergrity blade servers, They offer great versitility, redundancy, and a rapid method of deploying multible virtual guest within 10 minutes. The blade server packaging offers the ability to add addtional blades without downtime. The integrated networking, power, and san storage reduces the need to run new cabling just to add a new server when addtional blades are added.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a GUI interface to mange resources and deploy new servers. The current method requires a lot of hands on with a lot of check and recheck. SAN storage lun assignment is lost on the guest side without running commands on the master server and the guest to extrapolate which physical luns are assigned to which file system.

What is HPE Integrity?

HP Integrity solutions provide an unparalleled portfolio of resilient systems for mission-critical environments. When availability matters, the new HP Integrity NonStop X enables you to stay ahead of your competition by mitigating the risk of downtime and effortlessly meeting your business processing, OLTP, and database requirements all with an industry-standard x86 architecture.
