Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The OneView Global Dashboard is very user-friendly and it can be used for monitoring the power consumption and temperature of the data center and racks.""Provides the strongest support for automation.""The best part is that you can integrate a two-way network. Earlier we could not manage the storage and ToR switch. Now we can create a LAN with our storage without any interface. In terms of switch management, it is now easy to understand the current configuration. It provides centralized management. It provides a single pane, and you can easily do all updates in one shot. It is a great product."

"Splunk can extract all kinds of data. There's no limitation on what kind of structured and unstructured data one needs to extract — it can access any kind of data, including machine-generated data.""The additional vendors we've brought on board, particularly the elastic, have been quite beneficial.""It allows us to digest the information, the data, the different data streams, so we can make decisions based upon information that we receive, and it is pretty robust.""It is the best tool if you have a complex environment or if data ingestion is too huge.""The solution allows easy gathering and ingestion of the data.""The solution has proven to be quite stable.""It provides a lot of analytics with the underlying AI engine, and it is a lot easier than other solutions. There are some products that do automated AI-based detection and drawing up charts, but for network monitoring and all of the monitoring aspects, it is quite a nice tool. It is very convenient for business users because they get more or less a lot of data readily available. If you're familiar with the Splunk query language, you can pretty much do whatever you want.""I have found the installation can be of medium difficulty to very complex depending on the use case."

Cons
"Does not allow for switch configuration other than through OneView.""It would be better if we can add every HPE device to OneView, such as MSA, as well as the other servers like the DL server and ML server.""They can improve reporting and provide more customized reports. Currently, reporting is a bit limited. It can be complex to learn and manage for beginners. Because of my experience, I find it comfortable to manage, which might not be the case with beginners. It would be good if they can make it a little bit easier to understand. They can provide a more graphical view of connectivity and other things. Their technical support can also be improved."

"I would like Splunk to add more integration. QRadar has many indications with more products than Splunk.""It could be more user friendly, in terms of the end-user experience.""It currently has limited default rules and customizations. If they can concentrate more on the compliance part and the security information part, it would be helpful. The platform part is good, but it requires many features from the security aspect.""An area of improvement would be the licensing of the solution. They need a free license, which would allow faster lead times."". Having a trial version or more training on Splunk would be helpful.""Technical support needs to be more responsive.""The solution could improve by increasing the performance. We have run into problems when large amounts of data are processed.""It's difficult to set up initially, and their billing model is also a bit complicated."
