HPE SimpliVity Scalability

Scott Howell
IT Director at McInnes Cooper
Scalability is fine. We are a fairly small organization, so it hasn't really come up. We fit well into their small end of deployments. From what I hear, it can scale quite high. However, that is not a functionality or feature that we've come across yet. View full review »

It is not very scalable. However, I think it is supposed to be like that. It is not supposed to be like a massive solution with about 30 clusters, and that is by design. I don't think that is a flaw. It is designed for small clusters, so it is not very scalable. View full review »

Scaling is a piece of cake. We have been able to scale up in our Asia-Pac region. We even are doing site-to-site replication of certain systems that we need to have high availability on. View full review »

The scalability of the storage and memory are less than ideal. Although there are unused drive slots in the SimpliVity hosts, you can't just add additional drives. You must purchase additional nodes to increase the storage capacity. We needed to expand the RAM after putting the nodes in service, and the only option was to add another 384 GB of RAM, the same amount that the node came with. View full review »

Consultant at a tech services company
The solution is not so scalable, because you have only a few options to expand the system. We have between 100 users and 500 users. View full review »

VP/Chief Technology Officer at Francis Drilling Fluids, Ltd.
It was inconceivable that we could deploy a 2U solution and gain all the server, storage, and data protection functionality that we needed. Scalability was a huge factor, along with ease of use, and management, which was all integrated from within vCenter. View full review »

I haven't had to try and scale it yet. It is pretty good for a small to medium-sized business. View full review »

In terms of scalability, this solution fits us. However, I think that the actual limitations are somewhat less than what people might want. For our purpose, it's ok. View full review »

The scalability is very good. It's excellent for a branch office/remote office, instead of a data center. View full review »

We're a relatively small organization so it was able to scale down to our level. We understand it can scale up exponentially. View full review »

Scalability sounds easy, just add nodes. We haven't had to do that yet, since we just started. View full review »

The scalability is okay. You only need to aggregate some nodes, then increase the capacity of the structure. View full review »

It scales well so far. We had to increase capacity. It was able to scale pretty simply, and that worked well. View full review »
