    655,113 professionals have used our research since 2012.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It is easy to scale. We are on top of it. We have an application from a specific vendor. We, as well as the software vendor, are happy with it.

    How was the initial setup?

    It was really straightforward. The process for installing and commissioning the services was easy.

    What about the implementation team?

    We are using our own teams for installation. We are quite autonomous on it. We internally have the knowledge to do the job. We are happy with it.

    Our infrastructure team is managing all the hardware, virtual machines, and operating systems. We have around 2,000 servers. We don't have a dedicated team for Apollo. We have a team that takes care of all the generations of servers, including Apollo.

    What other advice do I have?

    I can recommend this solution. It is easy to maintain. If you have an infrastructure team, you won't have any problem with it.

    I would rate HPE Apollo a nine out of ten.
