Solution Sales Manager SAP with 1,001-5,000 employees
Vendor
The stability is much more than the industry standard servers because of the higher availability that has been designed into it

What is our primary use case?

We use it as a database server for SAP systems, and it is performing very well.

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 vendor: * The stability of the vendor * Their investment in future technologies * Their reliability.

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.

The most valuable features 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.

Initial setup was relatively straightforward.

We used it for single thread, high linear-demand applications.

What other advice do I have?

Don't do it. Go x86.

Vendor
Reliability and scalability were good when we started using it. It is old technology, so there is not much growth that we can do now.

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.

Vendor
A reliable server which we use for all of our production environments.

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.

Our customers that require high availability are those that are running on the Superdome 2.

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.

It allows us to sync between the different methods of banking -- mobile and internet systems -- that we run through data. It's quite expensive, so we're considering moving some services to Linux.

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.

Replacing PA-RISC with the IA CPU has helped the HPUX perform better. There is still a bias, however, of Oracle towards HP Integrity servers, an issue that should be addressed.

What other advice do I have?

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