What is most valuable?

* Security for encryption * Performance * The support, because we have the online support directly with HPE. Any error or any incidents, they are directly involved and solve it. It makes our life much easier, even as IT.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides very fast deployment. The performance for our most critical applications is very quick. Even the support is 24/7.

What needs improvement?

HPE has a product that I am very interested in, but it lacks of integration with 3PAR - HPE SimpliVity. If it could be integrate with 3PAR, it would be amazing. This is what I am looking for going forward.

What is most valuable?

We currently deploy the Unitys for CIFS-based file access to supplement our VxRail deployment, which was installed around the same time.

How has it helped my organization?

The VNX5300 was a good all-around device, which we used for our VMware-based workloads along with CIFS-based file access. After our transition to HCI, we needed a dedicated, non-virtual machine-based CIFS solution that was easily scalable to... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like the device to have the ability to pull down its own firmware. That would be a great thing.
