Product Reviews
HPE ProLiant DL20 Gen9 - Xeon E3-1220V5 3 GHz - 8 GB - 0 GB is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Its scalability and clustering features are valuable. Valuable Features:* Scalability* Availability* It’s robust* Clustering* VirtualizationI can do with it almost everything within minutes.Improvements to My Organization:It reduced costs and time.Stability Issues:I would say it's not the top of the line, but it's near the top. We had some cracks in the past but stability is high. It's not outstanding, but it's high.Scalability Issues:For these kinds of features themselves, scalability is OK, but I expect much better performance from the scalability. There are some features that are quite slow and we have faced some issues with them in the past.Technical Support:We have used technical support twice and it was slow. I would give it a rank of 2/5. They are a big organization, but the support teams are very, very slow.Previous Solutions:Management decided to move to this solution. I inherited this from them. We were using a solution from IBM. We negotiated a better price with HPE.Other Advice:Make sure you negotiate yourself a very good service contract.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It provides redundancy, flexibility, and compatibility with operating systems. Valuable Features:The most valuable features are redundancy, flexibility, and compatibility with operating systems.Improvements to My Organization:The cost and the user experience are two of the main benefits.Room for Improvement:In the next release, I would like to see more redundancy of the CPU. That would be great.Stability Issues:The solution is very stable. We have had it for more than ten years, for several generations of the product. It's a very stable solution.Scalability Issues:The first version was not so scalable. Today’s versions are very scalable. We are very, very happy with this new version.Technical Support:We have a maintenance contract for support from the HPE ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/hpe-alm ) team around the world. We don't use it so much because the solution is very stable. When we do use it, the quality depends on the country. For example, in France, it works very well. However, when we try it in China, it can be a little bit tricky.Previous Solutions:We used another solution from another company. However, the cost vs. benefit was not so good. For that reason, we switched to HPE services.Initial Setup:I was involved with the setup. It was very easy to apply.Other Solutions Considered:We worked with Dell ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/dell-poweredge-r ) and IBM ( https://www.itcentralstation.com/products/ibm-rack-servers ), but we chose HPE.Other Advice:When selecting a vendor, it's good to have a real relationship in order to get a reliable, ascertainable, and a flexible solution. With this solution, you can close your eyes and you can use it because it's a very stable and personable tool. There is a real relationship between HPE and the customer, and they support you during all the steps you take.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Commonality between systems makes it easy to manage. Valuable Features:The commonality between the systems is very valuable, and it is very easy to manage.Improvements to My Organization:It helped us a lot because it's a very stable solution.It's not changing very much in terms of handling from generation to generation. So every time they introduce a new ProLiant generation, it's very easy for our operations team to adopt it; and it's very easy for us to adapt to the new features.Because of the commonality between systems, we also have a very lean and optimized process for replacing people when resources need to be moved around. I think that's the main benefit of the ProLiant platform.Room for Improvement:My personal opinion is that the rack-mount kits in generation four were the best. The current ones are kind of overcomplicated to mount, so I would really like to go back to how the rack mount worked when we had the G4. This would really be an improvement.Stability Issues:It's rock solid. I have never seen a ProLiant server breaking down for no reason.Scalability Issues:I think for us the scalability is definitely sufficient. We have the two-socket series and the four-socket series. We did not look beyond that because it's just not in our requirements; but we are fine with what we have.Technical Support:They are very efficient, fast and friendly. They know their products. It was a good experience.Previous Solutions:When I joined the company, we were on Compaq ProLiant and we stayed with it. For HP, the ProLiant series is still a strategic product. If you look at other vendors, say IBM, they even sold the X86 server business. So there are not too many vendors in the business who have a very strategic X86 server series, and HP is obviously one of them.Initial Setup:It's a data center. Things go in and out. I was a system administrator myself many years ago, so I set up a lot of HPE ProLiant systems. They were very easy to set up in the past. They have become even easier. I would say that half of the strength of the ProLiant servers is the software and the additional tools that HPE provides.Other Solutions Considered:IBM fell off our short list of vendors because they just gave up the business.Dell didn’t have the same level of stability, maintainability, and range of products that we have with the ProLiant series.Other Advice:Investigate some use case scenarios relevant for your daily business perspective, for example:* What do you need to do to change defective hardware in your system?* What do you need to do to upgrade your systems?Check the workflows:* How easy is it to change the parts?* How easy is it to access the server?Do you have the right documentation already in the server, like it is for HPE; or do you need external sources to know what you are doing?Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Scalable solution that can be customized to match service needs. Valuable Features:Scalability and being able to customize the service in just theway that we really want it.Improvements to My Organization:The benefits are that we can customize what we want. We're able to tailor the actual service itself to our specific requirements. This is opposed to trying to get something off-the shelf which doesn't quite fit and then we have to make compromises.Room for Improvement:I’d like to see a lower price. That's not the whole 20% difference of why I gave it an 8. One of the negative things that we find is that the configuration tools are sometimes not easy to use. That contributes to the detriment of the score.Stability Issues:I would rank scalability at about 80%.Technical Support:I have used support. There are certain proprietary information elements which are clearly owned by HPE which are always nice to look at when troubleshooting. There are some items that we understand that they can't share. From a technical point of view, it would be nice to have more visibility and scale.Initial Setup:I was involved in the setup. I think our first installation was okay. When we are buying new models, sometimes the support doesn't feel like it's quite there. That might not necessarily be on the HPE side of things. This lack of support might be from some of the products that we use with it.Other Advice:We go through software purchasing cycles and we know roughly when, in the lifetime, we need to purchase certain key infrastructure components. We also have the ad hoc requests where we need to get a certain per-line, server-specific, full requirements, and then we buy as we need it.When selecting a vendor,trust is the main issue. I'd suggest others seriously consider HPE as a servicesolution. Our experience has been pretty positive. Based upon that I,would recommend HPE products.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Implementation and setup is all wizard-driven. Valuable Features:The most valuable features are reliability, the ease of implementation and setup. It's all wizard-driven. Also, maintenance on the devices, spare parts availability, and, as I’ve mentioned, reliability.Improvements to My Organization:We've reduced the number of physical servers, currently. So, we've brought it down from 38 servers down to about 15. Seeing that we are standardizing, it's easier to support the devices, as we don't have that many different devices on-site that need to be supported.Room for Improvement:I looked at the technologies offered at a recent HPE conference. There are a lot of technologies that are only offered on the high-end servers. As an example, the SSD module that's embedded on the memory; that's only available on the HP DL380. We've invested quite heavily in the HP DL360 G9s, which means that I won't have access to that technology. I would like it if there's a possibility, even if you have to pay an additional license, to enable that technology on the DL360s.Stability Issues:There's never a problem with it. It's always running. The reliability factor's quite high.Scalability Issues:It has definitely been stable.On the 3PAR, you just add devices as needed.Previous Solutions:My previous employer, we were an HP house. Then when I started at the new company, I’ve noticed that they’ve got a mixed breed of technologies. It's not all industry or first-year suppliers or brands. I started the standardization strategy and obviously, HPE was the first choice.The most important criteria when selecting HP were performance and reliability. I've got an existing relationship with a current supplier and, like I've mentioned before, I'm familiar with the brand and the technologies.Initial Setup:Initial setup was straightforward.Other Solutions Considered:Before choosing this product, I also evaluated Dell and IBM.Other Advice:Absolutely HPE. Absolutely happy with it.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its Virtual Connect technology simplifies networking configuration. The product must support high-speed network adapters to meet customer expectations. Valuable Features:I found HP Virtual Connect (VC) technology to be the most valuable. VC technology simplifies networking configuration for the server administrator using an HP BladeSystem c-Class environment. VC adds a hardware abstraction layer that removes the direct coupling between the LAN and SAN. Hence, it reduces the number of cables required for an enclosure, the number of edge switches, enables direct server-to-server connectivity within the BladeSystem enclosure and more. This feature can significantly reduce the time required to complete a service event.Improvements to My Organization:Without VC, changes to server hardware (for example, replacing the system board during a service event) typically implies changes to the MAC addresses and WWNs. The server administrator must then contact the LAN/SAN administrators, give them the updated addresses, and wait for them to make the appropriate updates to their infrastructure. With VC, a server profile keeps the MAC addresses and WWNs constant, so the server administrator can apply the same networking profile to new hardware. Additionally, VC Flex-10 and VC Flex-20 technology further simplifies network interconnects. Flex-10/Flex-20 technology allows you to split a 10 Gb or 20 Gb Ethernet port into four physical function NICs (called FlexNICs). This feature lets you replace multiple lower-bandwidth NICs with a single 10 Gb or 20 Gb adapter. Prior to Flex-10, a typical server blade enclosure required up to 40 pieces of hardware (32 mezzanine adapters and eight modules) for a full enclosure of 16 virtualized servers. Using HP FlexNICs with Virtual Connect interconnect modules reduces the required hardware by up to 50 percent by consolidating all NIC connections onto two 10 Gb or 20 Gb ports.Room for Improvement:As server technology moves forward, I expect HPE server solutions to be compatible with the advancements such as supporting 40+ GbE network adapter and further reducing the complexities in a network topology such as fewer cables, edge switches and simple administration.This seems to be important to me because in today's competitive environment, the end users expect to have a high-speed SAN network, which majorly depends on the network adapter's speed and performance. In my opinion, the product must support high-speed network adapters in order to meet the customer's expectations.Use of Solution:I've been working on the HP server technology for almost three years now.Stability Issues:I encountered stability issues, particularly with HPE DL-580G8 and DL-360G9 servers. With a network topology similar to be used by an end-user, I encountered server failures such as server freeze, slow booting, and difficulties scanning the LUNs when performing a boot from SAN.Scalability Issues:I did not really encounter any scalability issues! I would say the product is quite stable as far as scalability is concerned.Initial Setup:The initial setup (such as network connections) is quite straightforward. The configuration part too is simple, considering that one must know what he/she is doing.Cost and Licensing Advice:Server technologies nowadays are expensive. Be it HPE, Dell or EMC. In case of large network deployments, nothing can beat HPE Blade Server Technology (with/without VC technology). It provides simple and efficient configuration and administration.Other Advice:One must be aware of the objectives he/she is expecting. Thorough research about the product and the reviews is always advisable from my end. If it fits in, the user can very well carry on.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for applications that you use really heavy disk IO. I'm not a fan of their rails. Valuable Features:I like their scalability. The fact that where I have 24 drives in one of my servers, I can basically turn it into its own little storage tray if I want to, and then attach a server to it. It's really good for applications that you use really heavy disk IO.Improvements to My Organization:For us, we use the DLs more on a piece by piece basis, so when our clients come to us with a very specific demand that really doesn't fit well with our blades, which is our preference, then we go to the DLs, and then we scale it out for whatever they need.Room for Improvement:I'm not a fan of their rails. I hate how those things rack, as they're just not nice.Initial Setup:The server itself is quite good, easy to use. Configuration of it is a little bit tedious, you've got to be willing to spend a couple of hours just to get it set up before you can even start using it, because the reboots are ten - fifteen minutes long, and that'll kill you.Cost and Licensing Advice:The cost per compute. I pay as much for a ProLiant DL as I do for a Blade. It requires more power, more cooling, more space for essentially the same function, if I wanted to, with the exception of additional storage. So for me it really does come down to cost.Other Solutions Considered:We haven't looked at competitors in a very long time for those. We basically have stuck with HPE. It's a known name, so I don't want to give my customers something that might work, I want something that will work.Other Advice:Get on it with OneView, because it's that single pane of glass, you can manage your blades, your DLs, and your 3PAR, all using that one tool.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The iLO is the biggest reason to buy ProLiant Valuable Features:The iLO. To me, its the differentiating factor of the ProLiant server and the biggest reason I'd choose to run them versus competitors. The iLO provides all the management features needed and is a consistent experience across all form factors, sizes and lines of ProLiant.Improvements to My Organization:The Gen8 and Gen9 hardware provides agentless monitoring and management using the iLO, so we don't have to run agents and rely on software to get hardware alerts. These all come across directly from the iLO. OS level alerts still require agents, but all the basic hardware monitoring does not.Use of Solution:These predate my time with the company. I've been with the company for 10 years and the ProLiant were several generations older, so I would say we had original generation one DL 380s, so it probably goes back at least 15 years.Stability Issues:Very few in recent models. Most any issues are resolved with firmware and driver updates from the HPE Service Pack for ProLiant, their cross-tested bundles. On top of this, HPE has done a lot of address issues for administrators. A couple of generations ago, with the Gen8 ProLiant debut, they hit twenty different improvements that I care about as an administrator. Predictive memory enables us to know when memory is going to fail. Instead of having a hard failure or a crash in the middle of the night, it's got predictive memory so it lets us know when not to pull a drive. So if we're wanting to pull a drive for a fail-back point or something, it's got a little indicator that says "Don't pull me right now". It's got an "X" mark on it, so I don't crash a system just trying to do something preventative, but there was a wealth of different things that they added into the systems that I can appreciate as an operations guy.All of that stuff came directly from feedback of customers like me and got integrated into the next product cycle, so I'm a huge ProLiant fan.Scalability Issues:No. You can scale-out with ProLiant, but each generation increases the memory and CPU capabilities exponentially, so from that perspective it's usually just a refresh cycle from scale discussion. But that is kind of how we approach it, is we need to increase capacity within inside of our VMware farms, we replace the hardware with a new generation, generally increase the amount of RAM and CPU configuration.Technical Support:7/10 - it can be hit or miss. We get better luck with our premium support levels. We have a named TAM for some of our systems, that works out well. Escalation managers are always good. There is good technical talent, it's just sometimes hidden by first level support. That can be difficult and frustrating at times, but over ten years working with them, I would say today it's probably a little better than when I first started. Actually, I would say it's probably improved a good bit since I first started working with them, but it's still got some room to go.Initial Setup:They were dead simple. You rack them, power them on, then you can use Intelligent Provisioning to install and configure the system. They just make a lot of sense. It's easy.Other Advice:I think it's the best server you can possibly buy.Disclaimer: IT Central Station contacted the reviewer to collect the review and to validate authenticity. The reviewer was referred by the vendor, but the review is not subject to editing or approval by the vendor.
