DL3 is not scalable. You cannot scale them versus replace scalable hardware, like going to Itanium servers. View full review »

I can tell you that through the years we definitely wanted to upgrade the servers, scale them up in terms of replacing CPU or even adding CPU for some of the servers that use one CPU, or RAM, or disks. We haven't had any trouble with that. That has been very easy. View full review »

In theory, they are expandable. So yeah, they fit our needs and I am sure if things changed, when we needed more capacity, we could get it. I am confident of that. View full review »

It is highly scalable, not like the other servers. This server has a virtual capacity. We can virtualize up to 8 servers, which we have done, and it has been good. The scalability is very high in 380, so instead of using the high-end servers, you can use multiple servers and segregate the applications between the servers. The performance is excellent in that area. View full review »

It's scalable but we are switching to workstation for some software because the CPU speed isn't fast enough anymore. For some products we were already using workstations, but for some others we now need workstations for the clock speeds. View full review »

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. View full review »

This solution is very scalable. When we bought the DL580, we bought it with full capacity. It is great for our business, and if we need to scale more, we can buy a new one. View full review »

We only use it on single machines, and for VMware we use another product from Cisco. View full review »
