What is most valuable?

It allows us to utilize the servers for VDI. The system supports two GPU's.

How has it helped my organization?

It was part of a bigger solution, which is VDI. We are able to publish desktops for design engineers whose requirements are continuously changing on a weekly basis.

What needs improvement?

I would like to look at Synergy for the new servers. It will be out in June or July. The Synergy Streamer Composer is one of the powerful features that Synergy has.

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

Pricing is not bad. They have competitive pricing, and the licensing model is simple to understand.

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

We knew we needed a new solution because of the latest requirements. Nowadays, IT is very involved with the business. We try our best to enable them to do their job in an… more»

What other advice do I have?

Be careful when selecting the vendor. It has to be a partnership. If the vendor can't deliver what is expected, it's going to be a nightmare. It's going to affect your… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated few other technologies. We chose HPE because we've had good experience with them. I worked with them in the past and so far, HPE has proven to be reliable.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are reliability, the ease of implementation and setup. It's all wizard-driven. Also, maintenance on the devices, spare parts availability, and, as I’ve mentioned… more»

How has it helped my organization?

We've reduced the number of physical servers, currently. So, we've brought it down from 38 servers down to about 15. Seeing that we are standardizing, it's easier to support the devices, as we don't… more»

What needs improvement?

I looked at the technologies offered at a recent HPE conference. There are a lot of technologies that are only offered on the high-end servers. As an example, the SSD module that's embedded on the… more»

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

My previous employer, we were an HP house. Then when I started at the new company, I’ve noticed that they’ve got a mixed breed of technologies. It's not all industry or first-year suppliers or brands… more»

What other advice do I have?

Absolutely HPE. Absolutely happy with it.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before choosing this product, I also evaluated Dell and IBM rack servers.

What is most valuable?

The iLO. To me, its the differentiating factor of the ProLiant server and the biggest reason I'd choose to run them versus competitors. The iLO provides all the management features needed and is a consistent experience across all form factors, sizes and lines of ProLiant.

How has it helped my organization?

The Gen8 and Gen9 hardware provides agentless monitoring and management using the iLO, so we don't have to run agents and rely on software to get hardware alerts. These all come across directly from the iLO. OS level alerts still require agents, but all the basic hardware monitoring does not.

What other advice do I have?

I think it's the best server you can possibly buy. I have recently had more exposure to Dell and Cisco products to compare with and I stand by the DL line as the best server and it is primarily because of iLO.
