What do you think of HPE SimpliVity?

Primary Use Case Currently, we are using it for our VMware workstation. We use it to host our non-production servers. • Valuable Features The hardware deduplication, because it is better for this use case. • Room for Improvement We should have something called micro segmentation inside the SimpliVity box, which can be easily implemented.
