What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are - 1. Ease of setup 2. Ease of Management with Web UI 3. InfoSight - analytics sight that collects data for all... more»

How has it helped my organization?

These arrays perform very well and have allowed us to move many physical servers to virtual and run them from the Nimble arrays without any... more»

What needs improvement?

No areas require improvement at this time. The arrays run very well and updates are flawless when completing.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Previously used Dell Equilogic arrays but they were end of life.

What other advice do I have?

Given the chance to evaluate Nimble it is highly recommended. Their CASL architecture is very fast and being able to get the performance from... more»

What is most valuable?

* The Remote Copy Group is amazing for the replication stuff. * We also use dynamic optimization to go between tiers. * The reporting, as well. We can quickly see performance per... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Certainly now, with the all-flash arrays, the performance that we get out of those means that we can host far more VMs on a smaller virtual volume. We get much better performance... more»

What needs improvement?

We're going to start to explore integration with public clouds, and I know that that's something that's very hot in the storage space at the moment. That's something we're looking... more»

What other advice do I have?

When it comes to selecting a vendor we're pretty much an HPE house. But I think the options you have to expand - within the storage space - you've got to have all those options.... more»

What is most valuable?

For the converged system, HANA for SAP. OneView is very good too.

How has it helped my organization?

It begins with a simpler installation. It provides a more advanced way to approach enterprise IT. It's still a nightmare, like every other... more»

What needs improvement?

We don't have any problems with it at the technology level. I can't think of any improvements they can make. I think they are doing pretty much... more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Pricing is good. We have not calculated what hyper-converged infrastructure has brought us but I think there has to be some lower cost for us,... more»

What other advice do I have?

I don't think we are completely happy but we are not completely unhappy. We are right in the middle. It's not the system, it's the people behind... more»

What needs improvement?

We are looking to be able to set a hard budget for the workspaces or projects. While we like the fact that there is not a true approval process... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

We did not have a previous cloud automation solution. We began using the beta version of HPE OneSphere in October.

What other advice do I have?

We have been working with OneSphere since October, when the beta was announced. We got involved pretty early on, had the ability to do the... more»

What is most valuable?

Our first impressions were: * The simplicity * The speed at which it works * It worked right the first time, out-of-the-box. These are what really caught my eye. Working with other... more»

How has it helped my organization?

I see this fitting into a lot of our customer profiles, as they are starting to make the transition from a traditional, monolithic, waterfall model into a DevOps CI/CD model. This... more»

What needs improvement?

Ironically, most of the features that we might have wanted to see were already introduced in the product announcement today, from what we saw in the beta, which was kind of cool.... more»

What other advice do I have?

We have been using it for just over a month now. I give it a solid eight out of 10 at this point, mostly because I do not know what is coming out at release and what is coming... more»

What is most valuable?

It's very simple to manage. It has reduced the footprint in the datacenters quite a lot.

How has it helped my organization?

We used to have a lot more units reserved in the rack for virtual machine hosting. Now it is only two units per site. Another improvement of course is the backup, the disaster... more»

Which solutions did we use previously?

We were using traditional server and storage based. We switched to SimpliVity because it was looking promising. It was simple. It reduced hardware presence in the datacenter. It... more»

What other advice do I have?

In terms of the most important criteria when selecting a vendor, that really depends on the vendor. But of course trustworthiness. And it usually comes down to product rather than... more»

IT Architect at Unibase
Dec 21 2017

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... 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,... more»

What other advice do I have?

I just took my certification in Synergy. I was one of the first technicians in Brazil who qualified for Synergy. The main driver for me to take the certification for this platform is because I deem Synergy like an evolutionary platform rather... more»
