We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We are able to customize this solution based on the customer's requirements.""Enables direct access to clusters.""The solution has a very good web interface. It makes it easy to manage everything.""The fibre ports that are 10 Gb capacity helped with the travel of a lot of regular as well as video data. Fibre can handle a lot more virtual data than copper twisted-pair, so we got a lot more data and a lot more traffic signals back through the fibre ports, faster, than with copper."

However, that may not be the fault of HP and is rather more related to the way our infrastructure is arranged.""Configuration can be complex.""It is not very stable.""Authentication and other security features are not easily satisfied using the lower-end switches.""The solution is very comparable to Huawei, however, it could be more scalable. Huawei is easier to scale.""The ability to stack, as well as a unified operating system, would be extremely beneficial.""The solution is a bit expensive."
