What is most valuable?

I believe, compared to the C7000, which is the mainstream in Brazil, it delivers a significant amount of innovation and flexibility, and I think people there will love it. The way Brazilians see things is that, "Okay, I need something that works. I need something easy to manage, because it's expensive, manpower is expensive. And I need a reliable platform, which... more»

What needs improvement?

What I would like to see is a little bit more of architecture-oriented advertising campaigns or events for customers; not on the product itself, but more on the way they advertise products. They are too focused on the features. This is okay, but sometimes what I see that people lack is, "Okay, I understood the features, but how can I use this in practical terms?... more»

What is most valuable?

* Composable infrastructure * Ability to easily re-utilize parts of the hardware for different purposes * Central management with HPE OneView * Ability to see the health status of the entire infrastructure * Ability to quickly and easily... more»

How has it helped my organization?

* Peace of mind. * Knowing that our platforms are running well, simplifying day-to-day management, so that we can do more with less staff and increase performance. * The increased scale of the back-end networking and the compute that we can... more»

What needs improvement?

We'd like to see faster networking in the back-end. I'm not saying it's slow at the moment, but we would just like more speed from a future-proofing point of view. We are seeing 25 Gig capability in our switch fabric so extending that to... more»

What is most valuable?

* The composable infrastructure with the Image Streamer. * Being able to seamlessly migrate from one operating environment to another within minutes, is invaluable.

How has it helped my organization?

The big benefit that we are seeing is the fact that we are so highly flexible. It makes things more agile. We're able to provision different applications, different demonstrations, add cloud-like speeds on-prem, which is unheard of in the... more»

What needs improvement?

I'm very curious to see what comes with 4.0. The big thing will be streamlining the Image Streamer process for deployment. The actual frame itself - Composer, OneView, all that - works fantastic. The more granular permissions that I know are... more»

What do you think of HPE Synergy?

Primary Use Case The use case is to replace all stakes in all the different kinds of servers. We had some Dells, we had some old HPEs, Generation 6, Generation 7, and so on. We decided to put everything together and create a new datacenter, and move our computing power to a platform that will enable us to be more flexible with our old applications. We are just in the middle of the migration, and the problem is not the new stuff, the problem is to persuade our old stuff that it must perform more than one gigabyte per second. So HPE is helping us to replicate directly through the old datacenter to storage that we have underneath our Synergy Servers.  • Improvements to My Organization The benefit is that it's going to be maintained, contrary to what we had last year, when the...

What is most valuable?

It increases the throughput. We had a problem with the C7000 with the down-link speed to the individual blades and what the up-link speeds were. Memory was kind of a constraint problem for us. Changing the form factor in Synergy allows us to... more»

How has it helped my organization?

It's mainly the fact that it gives us the next generation of the C7000, which we've been using since 2009. That gets us in that same useful pattern. The concept of virtual connect, OneView, is compelling. It extends our existing operational... more»

What needs improvement?

One of the things that I would like to see, and could be in their road map, is getting virtual connect to 100 Gig throughput. What they're coming out with initially on the road map is a 40 Gig up-link on virtual connect. That would be one of... more»
