Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The speed of the backups and having the system be immune to ransomware are the main advantages.""One of the most valuable features is iLO, which is very good. Another thing is the HPE support is very good.""HPE ProLiant DL Servers are easy to use and the GUI is rather simple and intuitive. The Americans know how to make things beautiful. Their Japanese counterpart has outdated GUIs. There is a lot of other services and software that HPE provides for the server. The software can connect all the infrastructure to form a unified management or monitoring system.""The robustness of the design of the server is the most valuable. HP servers are easy to use and user-friendly. The server is not complicated, and it is easy to use ILO systems.""HPE's iLO server management software is a handy tool to install and deploy.""It is stable and easy to set up.""The pricing of the product is fair and not too expensive.""The technical support from HPE ProLiant DL Servers is very good. We can contact them through various means and they are responsive, they are quick."

Cons
"The solution should work to be more scalable.""When it comes to security there can always be room for improvement. If there was an option to build security into the system it would be an advantage.""We would like to see remote monitoring capabilities added.""Configurations could be simplified.""The implementation should be simplified, it is not straightforward.""They should work with Microsoft to make licensing costs better. That's because the physical servers have processors with all these cores, and Microsoft now licenses Windows virtual server desktops based on the number of cores and the serving servers. So, if you got to build 10 or 20 servers on that desktop, you got to license them all with Microsoft. They should have a partnership with Microsoft to decrease the virtual licensing of servers in partnerships so that when you purchase the servers, you also get licensing for Microsoft on top of them. That's because it gets very expensive to license virtual operating systems to run on physical servers.""The solution is a little bit expensive.""It would be great if HP could use a ProLiant Server to run HP-UX, the Unix build from HPE. Right now, HP-UX cannot run on the ProLiant architecture."
