It gives us a view of all our servers, which we did not have before in real-time.

We could literally swap out a piece of hardware, slide one back into the chassis, and immediately - about three reboots later - it was identical. We didn't have to worry about configuring it, we didn't have to spend any time getting anything into place. It came back and it healed the environment almost immediately.

The remote support automatically logs service calls and support cases with HPE, which is really good.
We have the dashboard up on a big screen, and you can actually see when things go wrong or if there are any faults with any of the servers. The backup is automated as well, so the appliance is quite good.​

Assistant IT Manager at a pharma/biotech company with 201-500 employees
Gives us one platform to monitor and access or configure all the servers or the 3PAR, etc.
It's rather simple to use, and that's very important for us.

It monitors all our servers, and if there is any problem it straight away sends us an alert. If It's a faulty component, we can see it from there. It sends an alert.

We lose less time managing the machines.
If you have a lot of devices, like we do, then you have to have one single pane of view, otherwise we lose too much time. So, we needed this type of solution.

By being able to deploy servers very quickly and rapidly, we can respond to any business requirement needed.

Easy to add servers and get them monitored and manageable.

HPE OneView Cons

​I have to chop it up into smaller parts, because I have an installation in Europe and it covers the whole world. That is not so good. They need to be more localized, so I am going to chop it up into smaller bits.​
I had some minor difficulties with upgrading, but the solution still works fine.
Use it, but do not think it is going into the clouds, because it is not. There is room for improvement.​

Sometimes the interface can be a little confusing, sometimes the error messages can be very cryptic, as far as what's actually going on.
The main problem that we run into, as far as stability goes, is when something loses its profile. Sometimes it requires jumping through a number of "hoops" to really get it back.

One thing which is missing is that you can't actually log a support call yourself.

​I saw, maybe three years ago or two years ago here, or in Barcelona, at the HPE Discover conference, a feature that you can update Clusterware with VMware. But the feature is still not live in production. Currently, you have to do all the firmware updates and then you have to do the VMware updates. So you have two reboots and it would be better if it was just one.

Those features, coming in version 4, that we're looking for are the discovery, primarily. But I think the scope-based access control is of interest, although, we didn't see any directory integration, so that, in itself, seems like it's still limited.

The interface is a bit bland. It does its job, but it could have a better interface.

​We have a version 3 and a version 1.2, but the upgrade process from the 1.2 to the 3 is kind of an issue.
​Technical support is not very good. The engineers do not know a lot about the product​, even when asked simplistic questions.

​There was a feature called HPE cloud manager, but now it is owned by Micro Focus. HPE should make a cloud optimizer again.
