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… 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… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We had to stop using the previous solution, because it was the old HPE SIEM product. It continuously crashed for us. We used it to monitor our storage and our service, and it did not work. So, we… more»

What other advice do I have?

Do not expect wonders, but use it as it is, as a tool to monitor and manage if you want to. Especially monitor, because it can give you a headstart on any problems. It could warn you if the fan is… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No. We are strictly HPE products.

What is most valuable?

From my early days, the big value was in hardware replacement and repair. 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… more»

How has it helped my organization?

From the engineering side, we're seeing some nice benefits from just being able to pull everything in and configure it without having to spend time running down to the data center, spend time rebooting anything. We can make our configuration changes and then, a month later, when everything goes… more»

What needs improvement?

The area that I'm currently looking to explore is API-based automation. Thus far, I haven't gotten very far in it, so I can't really say where we are at, looking for that. Other than that, at the moment, we don't have a big need for more features. We need the time to really dig in to it and expand… more»

What other advice do I have?

At this point, I'd rate it about an eight out of 10. It's doing the job that we need it to, it's doing that job well. Sometimes the interface can be a little confusing, sometimes the error messages can be very cryptic, as far as what's actually going on. But on the whole, the product does what it… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable thing is the speed, in which we can provision servers, and the remote support, which is automatically set up as well. The remote support automatically… more»

How has it helped my organization?

* The speed that we can provision servers * The automatic case logging with HPE They are pretty good.

What needs improvement?

One thing which is missing is that you can't actually log a support call yourself. So, it's automatic, if a machine has gone wrong. However, sometimes it does not actually… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Before looking into the solution, I was looking for something which could buy us changes, but at the time, HPE had some other solutions, but they were actually quite… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not have a previous solution. We needed a solution for a long time just to save time, because if you are doing 120 servers and having to go into each one, boot it… more»

What other advice do I have?

Go for it, because its ease of use and setting it up. Once setup, then it is more or less, forget about it. It just works away in the background. Most important criteria… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No. We are a big HPE site. We use HPE SA and HPE OO for OS provisioning.

What is most valuable?

The template management, so the firmware updates can be done from the software.

How has it helped my organization?

It makes the deployment of the firmware updates much faster, and the baselines. We don't really use template management much, but it does help to get a start. It also helps if you can deploy a template and update from the template, so… more»

What needs improvement?

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. So it would be nice if you could… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were just using the predecessor of the software, HPE SIM.

What other advice do I have?

In general, when selecting a vendor we look for * reliability * enterprise-ready is very important for us * support * how they stand in the market. Is there enough information available? Do they have enough customers to know that it is… more»

What is most valuable?

Having one platform to monitor and to access or configure all the servers or the 3PAR, etc. It's rather simple to use, and that's very important for us. Being an IT person - I'm working for a chemical organization - we have to know a lot, but we can't be specialized in anything. So it's good that… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The anticipation of improvement comes from our partner. They have experience with other customers, most of the time bigger customers. They said this is a good direction to start heading in, it's future proof and it will simplify management of your equipment. So we're trusting the partner.

What needs improvement?

I cannot say. Maybe there will be, but my experience is not deep enough at this moment.

What other advice do I have?

We have not been using it so long actually. It was implemented by our partner a few months ago and now we are starting to put all our equipment inside OneView. At this time I would say it's an eight out of 10, which is rather good, because the product is working. It's implemented at our site and we… more»

Dec 20 2017

What is most valuable?

I hate to say, not a lot. It's encouraging to see a couple of features in version 4 that we think ought to have been there from the start. So, we can see the development path, but so far it's been limited in what we've gotten out of it.

How has it helped my organization?

We want it to improve our organization. We feel like we're in this cycle of transition of products, from SIM to OneView, and we can see the light at the end of the tunnel, but the tunnel seems to stretch. It's quite long.

What needs improvement?

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.

What other advice do I have?

When we're looking at vendors we look for the product itself and innovation. With respect to the HPE, that's what we look for, and dependability and standardization, rather than going too proprietary on things. Integration as well as strong partnerships with the likes of VMware. We are a VMware shop… more»

What is most valuable?

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.

How has it helped my organization?

More efficient. We're quicker in solving problems, taking action to solve problems.

What needs improvement?

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

What other advice do I have?

HPE has been around for years and we know they're going to be for even longer. We're quite happy using them over the years, from the previous management up to now, everyone's happy with it. Everything we ask for is there. Support-wise they're great, product-wise they have what we need. I'm quite… more»

What is most valuable?

Managing everything from one screen, so we do not have to open another screen for every machine. It saves a lot of time for us.

How has it helped my organization?

We lose less time managing the machines.

What needs improvement?

OS deployment, but it is in version 4 with Synergy.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

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, and it is the only option HPE offers.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: reliability and good support.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No.
