A highly stable and reliable solution for centralized management and monitoring
Pros and Cons
  • "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."
  • "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."

What is our primary use case?

OneView is a monitoring as well as a centralized management solution. We are using it for the virtual data center. We are using it for VMware hypervisors on top of the blades and HPE Synergy.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

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.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for almost two years. We started working with OneView in 2019.

Find out what your peers are saying about Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Cisco, Zabbix and others in IT Infrastructure Monitoring. Updated: August 2022.
621,327 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is certainly a reliable solution. We switched to this solution almost two years ago, and I have not faced any kind of issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not tried to expand it. We are a big organization, and in my team, there are almost 200 to 300 people.

How are customer service and support?

Their technical support can be improved. Dell's technical support is better than HPE.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We are also using Dell and Cisco UCS. Dell's technical support is better than HPE. In terms of hardware, stability, and other things, there are no issues.

How was the initial setup?

Its initial setup was not much difficult. I was not much familiar with it at that time, so their technical team guided us. Its documentation is available on the HPE portal.

What about the implementation team?

We took help from HPE.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

It was a management decision. They prefer only HPE Synergy. We didn't evaluate any other solution. We are using it in a lot of data centers. We are using something else only in a couple of data centers.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. It is very stable. There are very few hardware faults with HPE solutions.

I would rate HPE OneView a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

It is easy to set up and scalable with a user-friendly and informative dashboard
Pros and Cons
  • "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."
  • "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."

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and HPE OneView is one of the products that we implement for our clients. When we first started using OneView, we used it for monitoring our server. After that, I added my blade server and then two years ago, Synergy.  Since then, I have been managing my HPE BladeSystem and Synergy with OneView.

It is also used for configuring my Virtual Connect, the operating system for my server, and so on.

What is most valuable?

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.

What needs improvement?

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.

I would like to see the price reduced.

For how long have I used the solution?

HPE OneView is a relatively new product that was introduced between six and seven years ago. I have been familiar with it since the first version, and have been working with it for between five and six years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Stability-wise, it is okay. It suits us well.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I haven't had any problems with the scalability and configuration. I have set up and configured OneView for several customers that range in size from 50 servers to 500 servers. I would say that it works well for medium-sized organizations.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very easy. You have to create a virtual machine, turn it on, and go to the setup.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I think that the price of OneView is $500 USD per server, which is a little high. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I can recommend to others. The most important thing about OneView is that the primary usage is for configuring BladeSystem and Synergy. If the number of servers that you have is not very high then you do not need OneView because you can manage them using the system manager. You can do intelligent provisioning, for example.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Provides the strongest support for automation
Pros and Cons
  • "Provides the strongest support for automation."
  • "Does not allow for switch configuration other than through OneView."

What is our primary use case?

We deploy this system so our customers can deploy it to the cloud. I'm involved in research, deployment and operating systems. 

What is most valuable?

HPE provides the strongest support for automation which is very important in the cloud environment.

What needs improvement?

In OneView, the only option is to configure the switch over OneView. Dell provides an option to divide app administration and the ability to configure the switch by SFH. When we debug on switch, we need to access the Azure Edge which provides more information. In OneView, we only have the web interface to check the switch. It lacks flexibility. I think that they should also provide more options in the D device drive. We currently do everything by command, not graphic interface.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for two years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

A couple of years ago we faced a lot of issues in HPE OneView with crossover. Since then the firmware has improved a lot and is much more stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable. In our current projects there is a total of around 6,000 users.

How are customer service and support?

The local customer support here in Vietnam is not good and they sometimes provide an incorrect response. Once you get up to level two and level three support, it's much better. Thankfully there is a lot of information available online. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is relatively straightforward. It takes about a day to deploy one system from scratch.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There is no license fee but if you wish to have a warranty, there is an annual charge for that. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I believe the Dell MX7000 is a better solution than OneView because it has the option to divide app administration that OneView does not have.

What other advice do I have?

This solution works well but I prefer the Dell MX7000. I rate OneView eight out of 10. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
