Product Reviews
Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 14reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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. September 23, 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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 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. July 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by It has easy manageability, and with iLO we are able to do everything remotely. Valuable Features:It has easy manageability, and with iLO we are able to do everything remotely.Improvements to My Organization:It's just a computer server, so we just use them for whatever things we can't virtualize so it's nothing very special in that regard as far as what sets HPEs apart from somebody else's there.Room for Improvement:We're looking forward to OneView management, stuff like that to keep it all in check. But there's not really anything specific. It will provide a single pane of glass for management instead of going out to 50 different servers and configuring things so you get, set up a template, or do the different things through OneView. Just kick it off and replicate and automate what you're doing.Stability Issues:I haven't had any issues with that at all.Scalability Issues:I haven't had any issues with that at all.Previous Solutions:I've used other platforms in the past, but nothing specific. We wanted to have a single pane of glass for management and have consistency as much as we can so we stick with one vendor overall between blades, between rack mounts, between everything.Other Advice:Proliant, they're fine. I mean it's compute, it's pretty hard to mess it up these days.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions. June 29, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by It's a line that I'm comfortable with. I think it's something that HPE has put the investment into for the long-term. Valuable Features:I think the high availability features that are built into the server as our systems require a certain amount of uptime. Having to buy less servers because of built-in redundancy, means I have to buy less pieces of iron. It's a line that I'm comfortable with. I think it's something that HPE has put the investment into for the long-term.Improvements to My Organization:I think it's just the generations that are built on the ProLiant line of servers.Room for Improvement:The biggest thing I don't like about ProLiant, and this will be very trivial, is the rails. Every generation, even within the same family generation, the rails are different. It's a pet peeve. It’s not a technical thing. We do rack-mounted servers. Having to deal with different rack - or rail kits - is a real pain. It's not a huge technical thing, but that's the biggest thing for me.Use of Solution:For us it’s been a success year after year, generation after generation. I've used ProLiant for 15 -16 years.Stability Issues:Really none. Again, that may be just familiar with the tools from its initial iterations.Scalability Issues:Really none. Again, that may be just familiar with the tools from its initial iterations.Technical Support:I've never had a problem with support, and dealing with HP is always seamless.Initial Setup:The setup is so easy. It used to be SmartStart, but now they've changed that whole functionality. It's seamless to us. I don't really have any complaints from a "stand-it-up-and-support-it" perspective.Other Solutions Considered:We looked at Dell versus HP. Proliant versus the R-series on the Dell side. When you look at product to product, servers are fairly closely matched. The supportability, or the management of the HP, versus bringing in Dell into my shop was a cost, from an educational perspective for my staff. Understanding the product inside and out was more important than bringing in a new partner.Other Advice:I rate the ProLiant line very highly because you see the commitment of them building on it, and to me that's important.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by The most valuable features for us are the stability and scalability of these servers. Valuable Features:The most valuable features for us are the stability and scalability of these servers. However, what's truly key is the support we get.Room for Improvement:They're very slow to boot up. And we can have issues with the driver sets for all operating systems as well. The blade enclosures themselves, though, are leading-edge technology.I think the problem is that we're not geared up for automating the build process. We're still manually deploying servers.Use of Solution:We're still using the Gen 8 blades, though we've bought many of the new ones and we're going to install them soon.Deployment Issues:We've had quite a few issues doing the initial builds and getting the operating system up and running.Stability Issues:It is very stable. HP products generally are.Scalability Issues:It's scalable because you're not using actual discs within storage. You scale by adding additional services. The new Synergy product is going to be much better.Technical Support:This is the key for us. The support from OCSL is excellent. We don't use them often.Initial Setup:They take a long time to set up and they're quite complicated to build as well.Other Solutions Considered:We're pretty much an HP shop.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Valuable Features:* Reliability* Scalability* PerformanceImprovements to My Organization:These products are used as corporate infrastructure servers and improve our ability to perform everyday tasks crucial to our business as well as allow for easy administration from an IT perspective.Room for Improvement:As these servers are constantly evolving with better technology and performance, I would have nothing to offer in the way of a wish list feature additions.Use of Solution:I've used it for five years.Deployment Issues:No issues encountered.Stability Issues:No issues encountered.Scalability Issues:No issues encountered.Customer Service:It's excellent.Technical Support:It's excellent.Previous Solutions:This product was installed prior to my employment, but I have used servers from HP in the past and have always been satisfied with them.Initial Setup:The initial setup was very straightforward with a step-by-step wizard to help me get the servers configured quickly. I’m especially impressed with the RAID setup wizard which makes setup of complex disk pools a breeze.Implementation Team:I implemented one of the servers myself all the way through. The others in our environment were setup by Microsoft prior to my employmentROI:The ROI with these servers if fairly quick. Their reliability and uptime provide a quick return.Other Advice:I would highly recommend purchasing an HP server productDisclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
