In terms of setup, there are some gotchas and caveats, particularly when discussing stretched clusters. Rapid DR also pretty much goes the same way. Otherwise the process is pretty straightforward. Upgrades were a problem but have been addressed to a large extent. The biggest concern is around support and HPE's apparent lack of knowledgeable people. View full review »

While SimpliVity is not inexpensive, we found it was not significantly more expensive than the cost of buying equivalent host servers and equivalent SAN storage. HPE installed and configured the equipment as part of the purchase, so that was painless. View full review »

Make sure you plan for future growth and get a solution that has enough storage/resources for years to come. Originally, we thought we were only going to deploy our most critical VMs using this product, but once we saw how much better it was to manage the VMs, back them up, and deploy new VMs, we started moving a lot more servers over to it. Eventually, we had to buy another pair of SImpliVity OmniCubes to accommodate everything. View full review »

Upfront costs seems high at first look, but after analyzing all the benefits of SimpliVity, we have come out ahead. View full review »

It seemed like it was expensive at first. Now that I have had it installed for a period of time, I think I got a great deal. View full review »

Try to do a true comparison. SimpliVity includes backup, deduplication, and WAN optimization, so it is only fair to compare that with solutions having the same (or added in) features. ESXi licensing is a big part of initial investment if you do not already have that covered. View full review »

Cost is a factor. It is quite expensive. View full review »

HPE has decided to sell the solution in all-flash configurations, which may not be as cost effective for smaller mid-market enterprises. It has helped to reduce our VMware licensing costs due to host consolidation. View full review »
