What is most valuable?

Stability and a lower failure rate are the most valuable features.

How has it helped my organization?

We make steel and the manufacturing also requires software. These servers are the ones that we prefer. Since the beginning, we were tied with HPE and I have an annual maintenance contract for all of my servers. I have around 3,000… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more of a hard drive base. IT keeps on changing the versions of their products. There have historically been great differences in time than when the G server, the Gen8, nine, and now 10 generations of DL ProLiant server… more»

What other advice do I have?

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… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Dell EMC and IBM. The most important criteria when selecting a vendor, apart from costs, is service. Service will ensure stability.

What is most valuable?

I think the most valuable features are the CPU version which is very advanced, and the machine itself is very reliable in terms of how long we can use the hardware. Some of our customers are using it… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We are using, in Israel, a company called Arrow to distribute, and they are very very good for shipping, packaging, in replacing the front panel. They work on HPE a lot. They are doing it very… more»

What needs improvement?

I think that for us, we have is what we need. I'm not sure that we would like to see any new advanced features because we're not using such advanced features. I'm sure there's always places to improve… more»

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

We used Dell and it wasn't as fast and accurate.

What other advice do I have?

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We always look at other vendors, Dell, IBM. Right now we are checking into the option to buy storage so we are looking to, of course, 3PAR versus NetApp and EMC.

What is most valuable?

* iLO gives hardware information, preempting imminent failures. * Redundancy features provide hot-swap ability for drives and power supplies and automatic rebuilding of RAIDs.

How has it helped my organization?

We have been able to virtualize many physical servers into virtual servers running on a smaller number of physical hosts. This has allowed us to consolidate and reduce our carbon footprint in the data… more»

What needs improvement?

Boot-up time should be reduced. Restarting a server at any time is a stress-filled occasion, and waiting around for the server to come back on is agonizing. 10GB and 40GB ethernet connections are… more»

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

Ensure that you get the hardware support with 24x7 four hour response if this is a high availability production environment, and purchase appropriate iLO licenses if needed.

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

I've used HP servers predominantly so do not have much else to compare them with.

What other advice do I have?

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… more»

What is most valuable?

* Obviously, they perform what we want them to do. * The added extras, I particularly like iLO. * Just to be able to manage them and get information about the servers. That is really good.

How has it helped my organization?

We are on a journey with that. iLO, in particular, helps us manage the servers better, especially as a lot of them are remote from where the IT staff are. We have some locations where we just have not got IT presence at those locations, so iLO really helps with that. We are starting to use HPE… more»

What needs improvement?

At the moment, I feel that there is more there that we could be using rather than things that are missing.

What other advice do I have?

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… more»

What is most valuable?

Performance is the main feature of this product. For customers, the performance is excellent. It has been performing very well in the DL380 series interaction, and so far now, it is G10, and it is… more»

How has it helped my organization?

On the SMP side, applying 380 servers, it can handle multiple applications and supports a virtual missions environment. It has a good memory, good power storage facility, a redundant power supply… more»

What needs improvement?

We use, the service comes with three year warranty with next business day support. We would like to enhance it with basic service and a better level of support. It is not required in the 380 series… more»

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

If you have to include the warranty, enhance the warranty support.

What other advice do I have?

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… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

No, we were just looking at HPE.

What is most valuable?

There is a lot of processors, I am only using half of what I need. In addition, they update the ILO to V. 5 so maintenance remains very easy. You can easily monitor… more»

How has it helped my organization?

IT is easily manageable and expandable as well as usability for anything. especially for clustering using VMware vCenter server solution.

What needs improvement?

If they could put more disk array in one node or rebuild it in the same server, it would be very helpful and more powerful.

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

My advice is to start getting the training by themselves for how to manage HP Dl servers as the setup is easy to learn then make pricing according to model number and… more»

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

Used OLD IBM, Dell, Sun and Huawei they are good but not like HPE, give you deferent feels.

What other advice do I have?

Start to use Nutanix Solution with HPE Dl Servers that recommend by Nutanix.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Actually, every company that worked with have preferred vendor according to what systems integrators gave to them, in Thishknet I did the evaluation and select HP again… more»

What needs improvement?

We'd like to see better processors, better Intel processors. That's the most important for us at this moment. Also, the disappearance of the ML150 can be a problem. So we probably have to switch to the ML110, we don't know yet. Wa are also using the DL160, so it can be a problem. And that's why we may have to switch some of our products to a workstation.

What other advice do I have?

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.

What is most valuable?

It works It's easy to implement It's really good in terms of maintenance

What needs improvement?

The new function, which is coming at the moment, with the online firmware updates - that's one of the problems we're struggling with, with our customers, to have downtime - these live online updates are really, really a benefit we're waiting for.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It has been consistently stable over the years.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

At the moment, all the migration from the rack mount to the enclosure systems, the implementation of storage - all of this is growing. With HPE, we have no problems in this area.
