IT Supervisor at a energy/utilities company with 5,001-10,000 employees
Jun 22 2017

What is most valuable?

Just the ability to provision the servers with storage and network everything within one interface, not having to go into multiple interfaces to provision those pieces. For us with the flexibility that it has given to us, I would rate it very... more»

How has it helped my organization?

So, for us, just the simplicity of being able to manage everything within that single pane of glass has been just huge for us. A lot of time savings for us. Being able to take that profile, and just making a copy of it, and just deploy stuff... more»

What needs improvement?

Our company was actually part of a - I don't even know what they call it - but you sit down with HP, they talk to you about features that you would like to see with their next release, and then actually a few months later they brought us into... more»

Lead Virtualization Engineer at a wholesaler/distributor with 10,001+ employees
Jun 14 2017

What is most valuable?

Profile templates: The ability to generate the profiles and lay them down so the servers are built consistently. I would say that's probably the biggest piece of it.

How has it helped my organization?

To be able to rapidly roll-out a lot of servers consistently and quickly, without having to go in and tweak each thing individually. After we get the template built, we can just apply it and push it down

What needs improvement?

It's a nice product. It's a little slow sometimes. Overall, I think it does what it's supposed to do. I think that as they evolve it, it'll get quicker.

What is most valuable?

We can actually see if a server in China goes missing a disk or something. We can respond right away. It calls back. Or, if you have set it up, it actually calls HPE directly, if something is wrong and they respond to it. It is actually a... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It gives us a view of all our servers, which we did not have before in real-time. It is definitely an improvement for the guys that are sitting and watching the servers.

What needs improvement?

I had some minor difficulties with upgrading, but the solution still works fine. That is basically it. I can see what I want. I am still looking for more improvements. I am not that into the deployment part. I am more into viewing on a global... more»

Senior Infrastructure Engineer at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees
Jun 14 2017

What is most valuable?

What we were looking at originally with OneView was the server profiles. We were looking for: * Something that could provision the server end-to-end with everything configured * Core management * Central management * A way to manage... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Central management: That's something we're brand new to at CIBC, i.e., the bank. We never really had a centralized view. We had a very fragmented firmware process across the board with a lot of our hardware. During our refresh cycle, or when... more»

What needs improvement?

We're still pretty junior into it, so right now our focus with regards to hardware is kind of being displaced now with the cloud. For future releases, it's probably not going to fall into our lap anymore. I probably can't really speak to what... more»

Server And Storage Manager at a financial services firm with 501-1,000 employees
Dec 14 2016

What is most valuable?

We chose OneView when we decided to do a technology refresh on our data center. At that point we were buying over 40 HPE enclosures and 500 blades and we really wanted some kind of automation technology to help us manage and deploy that... more»

How has it helped my organization?

OneView has allowed us to standardize a lot. Prior to that, everything was done on a individual basis. So we now have standard templates for our servers and partially automated deployments. The configuration quality of new infrastructure has... more»

What needs improvement?

At a recent conference, I spoke to the guys in the CDA booth about what's coming and there's quite a few features in there already that I was looking for. I've asked for some better facilities around the management of alerts. The system... more»

Data Center Manager at Ferguson Enterprises
Jun 19 2017

What is most valuable?

OneView is a single pane of glass. It's getting everything managed and structured for us. We still use HPE SAN and IRS and all of those things. But now, OneView is kind of bringing that all together. We get templates, so it's speed to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The improvement has been speed. It takes away some of the time we spend working on redundant tasks that you have to do all across the environment that you can do in OneView and then you can push it out across the whole OneView environment. It... more»

What needs improvement?

One of the big things is getting rid of a lot of the legacy devices. As we move to OneView, we want to get away from IRS and SIM and have one thing that will manage all of our accounts.

Server Hardware at Basefarm
Dec 28 2016

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of the product are health control, keeping an eye on the status of the server and the repository management for firmware. I can download the SPP from HP and upload it to OneView. After that, I can add servers to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It provides a better control of what is installed on each server. Now, we have control over the hardware status and what is happening on the hardware in regards to hardware failures and other alarms In the new version, we're going to get... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to choose what I want monitored from the server. I want to disable features like performance monitoring, utilization, and power control. They could add more customization of the SPPs in the system, so I can upload the SPP but... more»

Senior Systems Engineer at Delta Dental of California
Jun 22 2017

What is most valuable?

The automation capabilities are the most valuable. I don't have to use CD-ROMs or anything like that to provision the servers. Plug in a server and give it a profile. The whole thing is automated.

How has it helped my organization?

It saves us a lot of time. Time is money. We mess around with servers all day. So, it's a huge time saver. It also helps us track our inventory better in terms of where things are. With one of these you can actually plan out your whole data... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see support for things that aren't in the current generation. We have a lot of 7th and 8th generation hardware. In the 9th generation, we are looking at virtual connect. Virtual connect profiles, things like that. So, we have... more»
