Nutanix, VxRail and HyperFlex. Nutanix comes into almost all discussions and is a leader. The only area of concern is the expense as it adds up. VxRail is definitely the number one contender when discussing ROBO use cases but SimpliVity's DVE with its accelerator card is a strong option, particularly from the point of not needing additional hardware to address add-on requirements. SimpliVity also brings capacity savings. View full review »
Eric Buzzell
Enterprise Architect at Jackson laboratory
We have done PoCs with a number of the other competitors. Ease of use, support, price, and durability are the factors that we look for while selecting a vendor. That was a big check for us, as far as moving further with HPE SimpliVity; the fact that we can buy it on HPE. Being an HPE shop, we like that we can now purchase the product, a HPE product, and an HPE hardware. View full review »

Systems Administrator at BYU College of Life Sciences
Before choosing, we evaluated Cisco UCS FlexPod. We also evaluated and did a proof of concept (PoC) of a direct competitor's product after our SimpliVity acquisition. In short, we validated our investment with 100% confidence. View full review »
Sales at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
As a reseller, we like to give our customers a lot of options and we're not gonna sit here and say we only sell one product cause that would never be the way to do it. But HPE is a very strong company to partner with as far as total portfolio and solutions set goes. View full review »

We also evaluated VxRail, vSAN, StorMagic, Nutanix, Pivot, and others. View full review »
Senior Cloud Data Architect
We didn’t bring in any alternative solutions for a PoC. However, I have done evaluations of other solutions. We chose HPE because it allowed us to get in with a smaller footprint than some of the other solutions, which might require three, four, or five nodes. When selecting vendors, I look for technical feasibility, then operability, and then cost. View full review »
Manager, Corp IT Infrastructure at Domo
We looked at Nutanix, SimpliVity and one other. We chose SimpliVity because it's by far the most stable solution. We also chose it for the simplicity of managing the solution and the price point. It was a great price. View full review »
Senior Systems/Storage Engineer at Banc of California
We definitely evaluated others, including VMware, vSAN, Nutanix, and Pivot3 lead hyper-converged, along with SimpliVity. Then we evaluated the traditional Dell, EMC, and then a couple more of the players. I basically looked at all of the Gartner top vendors out there and we started filtering down based on requirements and budget. View full review »
Systems Administrator with 201-500 employees
No, once we found out about the SimpliVity product and saw a demo, we were sold. We have been very happy with our decision. View full review »
Solution Architect at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
When it comes to selecting a vendor, I think that partnership is one of the most important criteria. We needed a technology that is universally deployable and has the capability of functioning in the cloud. This allows us to use the service not only in our own premise's data centers but with cloud providers as well. At the time we were evaluating solutions but there were not many players in the market. We considered Nutanix, but it had its own hardware platform. SimpliVity had an OmniStack configuration that could run on hardware platforms that we already had within the organization. We chose SimpliVity because of this. View full review »
Steve Schaaf
VP/Chief Technology Officer at a energy/utilities company with 501-1,000 employees
We looked at a lot of other converged infrastructure solutions. To be honest, many of them are ‘one-trick ponies’ which didn’t deliver the inline deduplication, scalability, built-in data protection capabilities or superior architecture that SimpliVity’s OmniCube did. View full review »
Manager ICT at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our reseller pitched SimpliVity. Then, we consulted the market and asked for a solution for five years. We looked at the TCO, total cost of ownership, over those five years, including all the support. Overall, it made a good case to invest in SimpliVity. View full review »

Account Manager at a tech services company
We even evaluated software solutions such as DataCore, which we support and manage as well. But, software-based solutions cannot be on the same level as a 3.0 hyperconverged system. View full review »
Lead Tech Consultant for Data Center with 51-200 employees
We have used HPE, Dell, EMC, and Cisco. Typically, it's the customers' preference. A lot of times we have customers who are very comfortable with their existing HPE equipment. Going forward, if we go to a customer who doesn't have an existing preference, then that is where we are going to start directing them because of the partnership cooperation. HPE shines right now when compared to the other options. View full review »

We did an evaluation with Nutanix, but found their data redundancy was not sufficient for us. View full review »
Manager of Virtualization at a tech services company with 1-10 employees
We chose this solution because the product was very innovative. The latest and greatest. I think it's the future of data center technology. We had a couple other vendors, such as Nutanix, but they didn't really compare to SimpliVity. It's a really great solution. View full review »
