What is most valuable?

In terms of valuable features, I like its ability to configure. I know the other models like Cisco, and I think that HPE's ProCurve are easy to configure and to know how to create each connection and configuration.

What needs improvement?

I don't have any problem at all with HPE ProCurve. I have a lot of experience with it, and I know that HP normally changes its equipment and technology. Maybe it would work better with HP if I only had one type of equipment since they have ProCurve, Aruba, and OfficeConnect. Every team is different… more»

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

Before using HPE ProCurve I was using Switchcom. I also normally use Aruba and OfficeConnect.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten, I would give HPE ProCurve an eight.

What is most valuable?

The price is the solution's most valuable aspect. It's easy to manage and configure. The configurations can be exported and imported to another solution.

What needs improvement?

I don't see any flaw in the product at this time. I'm a happy customer. The only things that might need improvement would be the administrative tools and the graphical interface. The GUI could be… more»

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

We don't need to pay for support for HPE. The only hidden costs are the man-hours involved in handling the solution.

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

We did not previously use a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

We use the latest version of the firmware, or operating system, on the switches. We try to keep them updated. We use the on-premises deployment model. It's difficult to give any kind of advice on the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

He did evaluate Cisco many years ago, however it was too expensive to be viable.

What is most valuable?

The features that I like the most are the price, the feature sets, the no-nonsense warranty, and lifetime updates. This is the main benefit.

What needs improvement?

With Juniper, I like that they have an option to bundle a configuration change and commit it with the confirmed option. The switch will roll back if you don't confirm the change. If you make a change… more»

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

You buy the switch and that's it. It has a lifetime warranty, that includes lifetime updates.

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

I work with several clients with several vendors, so I have experience with other solutions. Most of the time our clients are using several vendors and we are trying to standardize to just one of… more»

What other advice do I have?

If they are looking into implementing this solution, just go with it. It would be very wise. I would recommend this product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I have looked at different vendors. I looked at Cisco, which is the main competitor. Based on the required features and price, HPE was the better option.

What is most valuable?

The solution is easy to use and offers good scalability. There's a good community and good forums on the internet if you have issues. It makes it easy to find what you need. The LAN features give us exactly what we need.

What needs improvement?

We do occasionally have issues with the solution and need to change out the switches sometimes. This can be due to the fan, but, in most cases, it's because the power supply was broken.

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

The solution is reasonably priced in comparison to other options, such as Cisco.

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

We previously used Cisco. We still have some Cisco switches, but we're switching over to HP as most of our network is oriented around it. It's more simple for us to work with HP. The pricing is also much better. Cisco is more expensive.

What other advice do I have?

We use the HP Procurve for the distribution switches. It's a 25-30 modem. We use the on-premises deployment model. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten. No solution is perfect. You still need to configure it a bit once you implement it… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution is fast and inexpensive. ProCurve is easy to manage.

What needs improvement?

The solution doesn't have web-based management, which is why we've moved to a different solution.

What other advice do I have?

We used the on-premises deployment model. We're resellers of the solution. Currently, I use a different solution that offers web-based management so I can gain access from anywhere and don't have to be on-site to manage the solution; I've switched from HPE earlier this year. I'd recommend the… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate other options, including NETGEAR, before choosing the solution.

What do you think of HPE ProCurve?

What is our primary use case?

We are a system integrator and we periodically sell web fabric to our customers. This is one of the solutions that we provide. This solution is normally implemented with rack mount servers and other equipment such as HPE StoreOnce.

What is most valuable?

The best features of HPE ProCurve are the price and the service. The user interface is simple to use.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see integration with HPE OneView. OneView is the management software for some switches and storage, and it would be helpful if ProCurve could be managed using this tool.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been familiar with HPE ProCurve for about two years.

How are customer service and technical support?

At times, I have contact with…
