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 Nimble arrays deployed Infosight has been very valuable with determining upgrade requirements,... 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 performance impact and there is actual performance improvement.

What needs improvement?

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

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 CPG and per LUN. You can drill right down to see actual... 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 out of those volumes now.

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 at. Apart from that, we're looking forward to going to the... 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 converged solution out there. But we have done data center consolidation and data protection, disaster... 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 what any other converged infrastructure services system can do. Perhaps faster allocation of... more»

What is most valuable?

In the data center, you see customers with a lot of blade enclosures and a lot of servers, and this solution works fine. I have one customer in Belgium that I know that is testing it, and they're quite happy about it. There are some challenges, but it is software. For software, you have developers. The hardware is there.

What needs improvement?

With the changing IT demands, they need to change more often and faster. We need applications to model tomorrow’s needs. We need more applications for changing users. There is a need for a more optimized infrastructure. For instance, I have a customer with 20 blade enclosures. In those 20 blade enclosures, there are 40 management modules that you need to update... more»

What is most valuable?

The tool was simple to use. Other hybrid cloud management tools can take days, weeks, or months to set up and deploy. OneSphere, for a beta, was a day to set up, potentially even less now that it is out of beta and onto its second revision.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

With Optio Data being a partner, this is another tool that we can offer our customers. We are getting questions and problems on how they achieve their goals in a variety of ways. For me personally, I am doing solutions design, and it helps... 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 to speed development, it would be nice to be able to allocate amounts to projects and cap them,... 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 tools in this space, I have never had anything work on the... 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 gets them going - crawl, walk, run - straight from crawl to... 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. You can't come to market unless you have Azure support, and... more»

What do you think of HPE SimpliVity?

Primary Use Case We are hosting virtual machines on it, and it is performing quite well. • Improvements to 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 recovery functionality, how it behaves, how fast the backups are done. And the reduction of data. • Valuable Features It's very simple to manage. It has reduced the footprint in the datacenters quite a lot. • Use of Solution One to three years. • Stability Issues The stability is also okay. • Scalability Issues It scales quite nicely. We are not very big so I don't know if it really scales up that big. But for a small to medium company, I would say it is much...

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 works. I need something easy to manage, because it's expensive, manpower is expensive. And I need a reliable platform, which... 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, but sometimes what I see that people lack is, "Okay, I understood the features, but how can I use this in practical terms?... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Our clients have been very happy with the data efficiency features (OmniCube accelerator card) and the HPE/SimpliVity HyperGuarantee, which is unique. For one of our clients who needed backup capability but did not want to invest in a... more»

What needs improvement?

* For SimpliVity to become a true DC solution, the limit of 32 nodes needs to be investigated. While this may not be a significant deterrent, it brings into question the underlying architecture. * HPE support is still not aware/trained on... more»

What is most valuable?

* The backup and recovery is very fast, effective, and easy to use. * The ability to manage the environment without special consoles or interfaces is a plus. * Managing storage doesn't require a specialized skill set. * Software upgrades and... more»

How has it helped my organization?

SimpliVity has provided our organization with a cost effective DR/data protection solution. Training time has be reduced due to SimpliVity's seamless integration with vCenter Flex and Flash clients.

What needs improvement?

* SimpliVity needs to improve the support for native backups, like SQL and Exchange. * File level restores work well, but indexing will help make the process faster. * SimpliVity needs to add support for Hyper-V and KVM.
