HPE ProLiant DL Servers Other Advice

General Manager / Head – Central Automation at Essar
I would rate them eight, primarily because of the service that they provide and stability that the hardware gives. For any other person who wants to buy any hardware, the first thing that he should look for is who is going to support him locally. He should then evaluate cases of the availability of that particular vendor's hardware. Buying any such systems is not a big task. He should see if he can maintain these servers in the long run. By long run, think ten years. He should be comfortable with the people that are going to help maintain and comfortable with the equipment that he's going to buy. View full review »

I think that the most important thing that you need to look at is a company that will give them end to end support. HPE does that. View full review »

The only thing I don't like about them is that if/when you have to restart it, it takes a long time to come back on. As the sea of sensors have increased in recent generations, the time has become longer. Define your storage needs in advance and then plan the disks accordingly. Suggest that if flash storage is financially feasible, then invest in that as the performance benefits are worth it. View full review »

With the DL380, you can't go wrong. There is no risk to go and take them. Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: Trusting that you will always have the right level of service. Support is key for that, and obviously knowing that the servers are used by thousands and thousands of other people. That they will be tried and tested. It is reassuring. View full review »

Most important criteria when selecting a vendor: * The vendor guys should know the product well. * They can recommend the right solution. HPE has a wide range of products in its portfolio. So, the vendor team must know HPE products and provide the right product to the customers. View full review »

Software Operations Engineer at Agfa Healthcare
When we look to work with a vendor, we look for stability. That's the most important. What is very important is that the systems are delivered on time. At this moment, that's a big problem, because of the hurricane in Houston, probably. Also the team we're working with, because we have different countries that are ordering. It's on us to follow up on the deliveries. View full review »
