What do you like most about HPE SimpliVity?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The biggest benefit of this solution is that If you use it, you can use it for the company headquarters and also for all the branches. You use the same system, only a smaller size. With SimipliVity you can also use the included backup solution. You don't need any other solution to back up the data or to transfer it.
The most valuable aspect of the HPE SimpliVity is the DL380 G10. We have mostly been using VMware and Hyper-V. On one side we have Hyper-V and the other side we have the VMware.
The scalability is its most valuable feature. It's also able to do stretch clustering.
The way it does backups is its most valuable feature. It replicates snapshots with very low bandwidth. We only have a 50 megabit link to that site, and it doesn't really use much of it at all. Therefore, it is a really good fit for getting our backups done.
The most valuable feature is the quick restore.
Among the valuable features are that it's a complete solution, it's easy to use, and there is not a lot of management time involved in operating the solution.
It has instantaneous backup and lag-free restore. When everything is running, I can bring back a huge VM in less than 30 seconds. That's even better than Veeam.
It is simple and easy to use.
A very small package but with lots of memory and CPU.
The rate of compression for the data in SimpliVity is the most valuable feature.
The solution's simplicity is its most valuable feature. The usability is also good.
It has lessened our burden on multiple different products, so they are under one umbrella. This has been economically good.
The department that ran our reporting in the legacy environment, it took them about six hours to run their report. Now, it is taking the same department less than an hour.
The solution has eliminated the need for overprovisioning. It is designed to take advantage of deduplication strategies, which means we don't have to have as much disk in the system to do the job that we used to have to do.
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.
As a point for optimization on our infrastructure, it works great for us.
We can get backups faster. We have a smaller footprint for hardware, which takes up less space. So, we use less electricity and floor space.
The ease of use on the backup and DR and replication side of things is good. It can be done by a VMware admin with no additional training.
It has reduced my data center activities.
The most valuable feature for us is its integration, as it provides an entire solution in a single box.
The feature that I have found most valuable is the backup recovery.
Dedupe, compression, and replication of primary and secondary data, locally and remotely.
It has a proven track record of stability.
Valuable features include ease of use, disaster recovery, and reliability.
Offsite backup, replication, and duplication of data are important for our plant environment since we are hard on our equipment.
Its deduplication and backup functions are reliable.
The ease of setting up our DR site with SimpliVity. It was very simple. I did not have to set up a separate storage, server, and networking environments.
