"It is very fast and easy to use."
"HPE Integrity is a reliable solution, but you'll need to refurbish the hardware because it's approaching the end of sale."
"The stability of the solution is very reliable."
"In terms of the productivity of our deployment team, the amount of time has been decreased a lot. In the past, to deploy one c7000 chassis with 15 or 16 blades, we literally used to spend two to three weeks. But with a Synergy, it's very quick. Within three days we can do the deployment."
"Great data storage and very good for software defined solutions."
"Its versatility, performance, and size are most valuable. It is very decent for its size. It has very good performance and very good specifications."
"For me, this is the best frame server technology available in the market. We can compare it to Cisco UCS. It is robust and stable, and it is also easy to deploy and scale. Their support is the best."
"I like that it's suitable for virtualization. It's also stable and scalable. The newer version has a lot of memory, and you don't have to worry about updates."
"Technical support is excellent. They are very helpful."
"The product enables the centralization of all administrative tasks."
"HPE Integrity is a pain. HPE hasn't put much work into developing the solution in the past few years because it will be discontinued soon."
"The monitoring is an area that needs some improvement."
"The performance could be better. The converged network cards initially didn't work. However, later on in the newer version, they came up with 50 GB network cards to replace the 20 GB ones, and it's perfectly fine now. At times, it could also be more stable."
"The setup was a bit complex."
"In the past, I have had issues with configurations."
"Changes to the solution are quite complex."
"Its management needs some work. It is not the best in terms of management. It has decent management. Its user interface can also be better."
"The profiles aren't so easy to work with."
"It would be nice if the updates were not accompanied by downtime."
"I would definitely like to see them fix the firmware updates on all the blades. No matter what operating system it is running on, make sure I can do the firmware as well as the software for those firmware components at the same time. I don't want to have to rely on an external product. Let's bring that product inside the menu so that I have a better experience with updates."
