More PowerEdge C Pros →

"The support you get is dependant on the region. Some regions are better than others.""If the hardware offered higher efficiency, that would be an ideal situation for our company.""We had a few hard drives that crashed, and we couldn't find them locally. We've tried internationally, but we are still struggling to get its spare parts. This is the main challenge that we have faced with this solution. Fortunately, the other drives are still working. There should be easy availability of spare parts. I should be able to request a quotation online from HPE for things that I am not able to get locally. Currently, I can order online, but when I type the serial number, most of the time, it is rejected. I don't know why it is happening. It could be because the company that sold us the system didn't buy it through the normal HPE channel. HPE should assist us as users to get the spare parts. Its security needs to be beefed up. I would like some security features. It was also challenging for us to set it up because we didn't get enough training from them.""For me, the product is okay, but I would probably suggest improvement in their services or technical support. They need to work harder in the preventative maintenance of the system. They need to improve in terms of how quickly can we get attention and how quickly problems are resolved. Its price could also be lower.""The response time in terms of getting technical support assistance could be improved.""It will be discontinued so we will have to change to another product shortly.""We sometimes have compatibility issues depending on the browser that you are using. For example, sometimes you have to switch between Edge, Mozilla, Internet Explorer, or Chrome to have things operating correctly.""There could be more management capability to work with integrations."

"The reliability needs improvement.""The VxRail should be opened to allow other virtualization platforms to be used.""There could be some more ports added in the future.""A feature that needs to be added is the ability for full container storage.""We had a few minor issues with compatibility on the latest version during the installation process."
