    Easy to set up and use, with technical support that is both good and readily available
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature is the technical support, which is both good and available easily."
    • "I think that the RAID support can be improved because it is not very effective compared to the DL series."

    What is our primary use case?

    We primarily use these as file servers. Rarely, we use them for applications.

    We are in a physical environment. We have a head office that is based in Saudi Arabia, as well as a second one.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is the technical support, which is both good and available easily.

    What needs improvement?

    I think that the RAID support can be improved because it is not very effective compared to the DL series. Generally, scalability can be improved.

    I would like to see a centralized monitoring system for the ML series, where we can see all of them in one place. Something like InfoSight would work well.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have bee using the Proliant series for about 12 years, since perhaps 2008. We used to buy a new one every three to four years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    These servers are stable and we have never had an issue.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    The Proliant ML is not very scalable because we can hardly increase the memory. The RAID support is also much less than what you get with the DL series.

    We have between 10 and 15 Proliant servers and hundreds of users.

    How are customer service and support?

    HPE support is both good and easy to find, especially compared to competitors.

    There are two or three local partners in this area and they're good.

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

    We are also using the DL series. We primarily use these, as opposed to the ML series. The DL is better, for sure, because it's a little more high-end.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is simple and there is nothing complicated about it. You really just have to turn it on because it's just the backend. After that, it depends on your software and what you're going to install, but it's open and ready to use.

    What about the implementation team?

    Our in-house team implemented and deployed our servers. We have a service maintenance team of between three and five people, and we also have partners.

    If there is maintenance that needs to be done and it is an issue under warranty then they will come and fix it, or sometimes give us a replacement. All of the other things are done here.

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

    The ML series is cheaper than other products, and everything is included with the standard licensing fees.

    What other advice do I have?

    This is a product that I would certainly recommend because they are the easiest and simplest form of servers available here in the market. It's easy to use for any purpose.

    I would rate this solution and eight out of ten.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    High part availability, reliable, and simple implementation
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature of HPE Proliant ML is the high availability of the parts. It's easy to find parts, such as replacements or spares. Additionally, we have a good relationship with the brand which is important."
    • "The technical support from HPE Proliant ML could improve. They are not as fast as they should be. When you have an SLA contractor, they don't give you the parts quickly, it can take weeks sometimes."

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature of HPE Proliant ML is the high availability of the parts. It's easy to find parts, such as replacements or spares. Additionally, we have a good relationship with the brand which is important.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using HPE Proliant ML for approximately eight years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    HPE Proliant ML is stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    I have found HPE Proliant ML to be scalable.

    We have approximately seven people using this solution in our company.

    How are customer service and support?

    The technical support from HPE Proliant ML could improve. They are not as fast as they should be. When you have an SLA contractor, they don't give you the parts quickly, it can take weeks sometimes.

    When you open a ticket, there is always a long procedure. You have to restart the system and upgrade etc etcetera, but it's something that we usually do by ourselves. We don't need support. It takes a few hours, maybe days to get all the answers, such as you have to update, or you have to restart. That takes a lot of time. Then when you need a part, especially in this period where there is a shortage problem, they don't always have it in the shortest way possible. Sometimes it takes days to have a hard drive or memory delivered.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup of HPE Proliant ML is easy.

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

    The price of HPE Proliant ML is very good. If we are partners, we have courses to attend and exams to do, but we buy more or less at the same price as everybody else. We have a small discount which should be increased.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We don't have a reason why we decided on HPE Proliant ML instead of Dell or something else, we found out it's the most available in the market and this is why we chose it.

    What other advice do I have?

    I rate HPE Proliant ML an eight out of ten.
