Built-in software management and redundancy for solid stability

Pros and Cons

  • "HPE's iLO server management software is a handy tool to install and deploy."
  • "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."

What is our primary use case?

With HPE ProLiant, you can run a Windows operating system or a Linux OS based on Intel architecture. We also use several applications like iLO to manage the servers within the architecture of our serverless AMD processors. 

Alternatively, you can use another monitoring solution like HP OneView to manage ProLiant Servers. It's a product for monitoring and managing the servers. In addition to monitoring software, ProLiant can be managed with a cloud-based solution. For example, HP's cloud-based InfoSight solution lets you monitor your server and storage, including ProLiant and Intel. 

ProLiant can be mounted in different types of server racks, like a CD or tower. The tower solution of ProLiant is for a small site or office. With this type of tower server, you can add a kit as well. ProLiant has several servers: 150, 350, 380. And there is another ProLiant architecture that you can install in a Synergy and BladeSystem enclosure. 

What is most valuable?

HPE's iLO server management software is a handy tool to install and deploy. OneView is also suitable for management, but you need a license for it. You can use OneView's monitoring features for free, but you need to pay for management capabilities. In the latest generation, Gen10, you have to add a license for iLO. In addition, generation 10 requires an ISO license to use iLO for management. And if you're working with Synergy, there is another new product like SimpliVity. SimpliVity has a helpful product that is based on ProLiant and another type of architecture similar to Apollo.

What needs improvement?

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. So if HP made HP-UX compatible with ProLiant Servers, it would be pretty helpful. On the other hand, Linux is also replacing HP-UX, so maybe HP doesn't need to integrate this architecture into ProLiant. 

If you look at ProLiant's trajectory, I think the next generation will be focused on adding memory. Currently, there is a gap in the memory technology, so I'm predicting that the internal disk for the next generation of ProLiant will be RAM only. I believe this high-speed disk will be available in the next generation. I think the disk will be integrated into the RAM architecture. 

With the improved RAM architecture, the disk will be faster than the first-class disk because there are other protocols between memory and disk. If you have your disk, you look at the disk in terms of the motherboard. If you add to the processor, it would be faster. All disks in this architecture will be in the solution's memory.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been working with ProLiant for almost 10 years. And two or three months ago, I implemented several ProLiant Servers running Windows. It was a very short project — a  small solution for a small customer. The majority of my experience has been with HPE servers like ProLiant and Integrity. I've been working with HPE products for about 18 years, including HPE infrastructure, storage, and servers products. So I've been working with HPE since my first job after I graduated.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

ProLiant Servers are stable because they have redundant elements built in.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I would say ProLiant Servers are scalable, but it also depends on the architecture. You can scale up with Synergy. For example, you can add two servers into one node. So if it's part of the cluster, it also depends on the operating system that's running. 

How are customer service and support?

When our customers deploy a ProLiant server, we're usually the ones providing support. We have a three-year contract for hardware and software support. The procedure for escalating to HP is pretty straightforward. You contact an HP call center then they verify your system handle or serial. If the server has an active contract, the response from the engineer depends on the conditions of the contract. Some contracts are six hours. That means they're going to solve your problem in six hours.

How was the initial setup?

Installing ProLiant is straightforward. There are different ways you can deploy. You can deploy it locally using the graphical user interface, or you also have the option to set it up using a shell. You only need some basic knowledge to install ProLiant. The procedure is pretty similar to setting up a PC or a laptop. ProLiant has an array of tools, so you can easily install the servers without any experience. The installer has a simple Windows-based GUI, so you just click through the wizard and provide some information to the servers. 

You don't need a deep understanding of the architecture. If you have a fundamental knowledge of operating systems like Windows, you can handle this with no problem. Also, HP has a lot of information available online, including video tutorials on installing your ProLiant Servers. HP has several channels to provide information for customers and engineers.

The time needed to deploy depends on the scale and your environment. If you want to deploy just one ProLiant server, it takes maybe 30 minutes. If you're going to deploy a Synergy of BladeSystem with different modules inside, you might need to spend an entire workday on it. Maybe it takes a day to install all your servers or maybe less. But installing a single ProLiant rack-based server can be done in 30 minutes, including installing the operating system. Installing the operating system, updating your system, etc., will take maybe 30 or 40 minutes.

What other advice do I have?

10 out of 10. The latest generation is the best, but Generation 6 was very stable. It was a good one. Now Generation 10 is the best. I don't know why they took so long to upgrade this generation. Still, Generation 10 has improved a lot in memory and processing, so you can operate in an environment that supports ProLiant. That's why I think HP-UX will disappear because Linux can run this environment on the ProLiant architecture very well.

For example, the range of velocity and processor speed is four or five times greater than before. You can run every Linux environment, which can replace the Unix environment. You can run this Linux environment inside the ProLiant and get the same service as a Unix environment. That's why Linux and ProLiant run very well.

Good for our regular server needs but has no scalability

Pros and Cons

  • "We have had no issues with the stability of the product."
  • "HPE ProLiant DL Servers are not scalable."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the product for normal server purposes, for the running of Windows 2016 or 2019. We also use it for custom network monitoring applications, so we may monitor some of our infrastructure. I would not consider the product to be very specific, as the application is dependent on the HP server. We can post it on any server.

What is most valuable?

While there is nothing specific that I like about HP server products, they are stable, as much so as Dell EMC.

What needs improvement?

HPE ProLiant DL Servers lack scalability.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using HPE and Dell EMC service products for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no issues with the stability of the product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

HPE ProLiant DL Servers are not scalable. There will be no dependency between the other servers, should we need to scale. Unlike VxRail, it will be completely isolated, the solutions being capable of being scaled up to 64 nodes. It is a pay-as-you-grow solution, which is the one that we are moving on from now.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not had occasion to make direct use of HPE technical support, although we we are in regular contact with the contractor who's providing the software running on the HPE. I do not recall any issue involving the hardware.

How was the initial setup?

While the product was delivered by a single contractor, the installation time was that of any other typical server. This only consisted of configuring the ILO, followed by putting on the operating system. That is all. Up to a certain operating level, the configuration of the product would not be a matter of days.

As the business services we provide are of a confidential nature, both for government and military purposes, we deploy strictly on-premises.

What about the implementation team?

The HPE and Dell EMC service products we are using were delivered by the vendor as part of one specific project and it is not up to us to advise which hardware will be provided. Yet, we always take advantage of any internal projects that we have.

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

We did not need to pay for a license for the use of HPE DL Servers, just for normal hardcore support. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

In addition to HPE server products, we also evaluated Dell EMC and found the two to be equally stable, although the former does not have a strong presence in Qatar. This said, we evaluated Dell EMC VxRail and Cisco HyperFlex for their virtualization player or hyper-converged player capabilities, but did not consider HP for these features.

Due to Dell EMC's strong presence in Qatar, I would recommend use of this product over that of HPE. This does not owe itself to any technical issues, only that Dell EMC has a stronger presence. Of course, the level of support is an important feature for the end-user.

What other advice do I have?

The kind of servers or HPE products we are using with those of ProLiant DL are DL390, 380, gen 10 and HPDL. We are utilizing gen 10 as our latest version of DL servers.

We utilize a total of six HPE Servers, strictly as a monitoring tool. The NOC membership comprises only 10 people.

As I mentioned, HPE ProLiant DL Servers came as part of a project. We will continue to use it for as long as we continue to renew the contract for the solution that is provided by the contractor.

Strong, easy to manage and monitor, and have very few failures

Pros and Cons

  • "This is all I've ever used. These servers are strong, and they have very few failures on them. They are also easy to manage and monitor."
  • "They are pretty solid servers, but, just like all servers, they become obsolete after some time. They can maybe provide a console to monitor the health of the servers. There should be some kind of console to which you can log in to remotely check on the health of a server, even when the server is off. The servers that we have are only scalable to some extent. They have got a limited amount of hard drive that you can insert. Their scalability should be improved."

What is our primary use case?

We have installed VMware on DL Server, and the operating system sits on this DL Server host.

What is most valuable?

This is all I've ever used. These servers are strong, and they have very few failures on them. They are also easy to manage and monitor.

What needs improvement?

They are pretty solid servers, but, just like all servers, they become obsolete after some time.

They can maybe provide a console to monitor the health of the servers. There should be some kind of console to which you can log in to remotely check on the health of a server, even when the server is off.

The servers that we have are only scalable to some extent. They have got a limited amount of hard drive that you can insert. Their scalability should be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for more than ten years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

They are pretty stable servers. The hardware failures are very minor. We do have one or two hardware failures but very far spaced. The major failures are mostly operating system failures, but on the hardware, they have been working pretty well.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

They are scalable to some extent. For instance, you can only put a specific amount of hard drive on the base. You can insert the hard drives of a limited size, which makes them not very scalable. This could be dependent on the servers that you have. There are probably models that are more scalable than what we have.

We have about 200 people on the site, and they use it on a daily basis.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not contacted them. We didn't have any major issues to escalate. The few issues that we had were easily resolvable. You can also use online support to check. There are quite a number of people using these servers. You can share problems and get some advice from someone who has faced the same problem before.

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

We will be switching to a combination of Cisco and Dell EMC. For computation, it will be Cisco, and for storage, it will be Dell EMC. The main reason for this switch is group policy. The group has decided that we move from HP and use Cisco with EMC Storage.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is a simple process. The old ones used to have a CD that would guide you through the process. Newer ones should also have a system where you go step-by-step and install your operating system and configure it.

What about the implementation team?

I deployed it myself. I got servers from a company and then installed and configured them. All servers were not deployed at once. I deployed just one server at a time. Typically, deploying a server, including the operating system and everything else, takes less than two hours. I also do the maintenance.

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

Proliant DL Servers have a reasonable cost. They are not as expensive as the Cisco servers. Everything is included when you purchase a server. You just have to install and configure it.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend these servers. I would rate HPE ProLiant DL Servers a nine out of ten.

Easy to upgrade but not very stable and the installation is complex

Pros and Cons

  • "It's easy to upgrade, and it is very easy to take care of the firmware upgrades."
  • "The implementation should be simplified, it is not straightforward."

What is our primary use case?

We use it for the 12 VMs we have on it. We are using VMware.

What is most valuable?

It's very useful.

It's easy to upgrade, and it is very easy to take care of the firmware upgrades.

With a complete bootable CD, we can do the upgrades quite remotely and pretty easily.

What needs improvement?

A black mark that we felt with HPE is that it failed within four to six months of use, even after it was addressed with HPE. 

The implementation should be simplified, it is not straightforward.

The product should be better tested before they send it to the end-user.

The stability needs improvement.

Support could be improved to be faster in responding.

For how long have I used the solution?

We just purchased HPE ProLiant DL Servers six months ago.

We are using the latest version.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

At this point in time, I would not say that it is a very stable product, because of the bad experience that we had.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is scalable to a certain extent. Not very much, but at least 20% scalable.

We have 300 users in our organization.

How are customer service and technical support?

We contacted technical support for the issues that we were facing. 

I found them to be quite slow in their response.

We could put up with the delay because it had just been brought in, and the applications were being transferred.

In fairness, it could have been because of the COVID issue. But I found them to be pretty slow.

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

Previously we were using Dell, and we switched from Dell to HPE.

We have been very dedicated users of Dell and never had any issues with them. Unfortunately, we had to switch to HPE for a specific reason.

We switched from Dell because of some specific requirements that could not be met with Dell. Also, we switched because of some financial issues. Dell was more expensive and we couldn't afford it at that time.

How was the initial setup?

It wasn't straightforward.

We had some issues with some failures initially. Though it was taken care of by HPE, we still had some failures, which was surprising.

We have a team of ten admins, engineers, managers, and data entry guys to maintain and deploy this solution.

What about the implementation team?

We had the help of the HPE service providers.

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

We have purchased this solution and it is under warranty. It is more economical than some other products.

What other advice do I have?

We will continue to use this solution, as we have purchased it and can't afford to just throw it away. If we continue to have further issues, we will consider changing it over.

With my current experience, I could not recommend this product to others.

I would rate this solution a six out of ten.

Stable with an easy initial setup and good scalability

Pros and Cons

  • "The pricing of the product is fair and not too expensive."
  • "The technical support is pretty good, however, they could be a bit faster and more responsive."

What is our primary use case?

The main use for the last order was for the applications and other items around an electronic fencing system.

What is most valuable?

The initial setup is very easy.

The solution scales well.

The pricing of the product is fair and not too expensive.

The product is very stable.

What needs improvement?

The solution is pretty complete, for what I have seen over the past three years. I can't recall if I've felt that any features were lacking within that time.

The technical support is pretty good, however, they could be a bit faster and more responsive.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for three years at this point.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable. It's worked for two or three years with no downtime whatsoever. There aren't bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's pretty reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't had any issues with scaling over the time we've had the solution. If a company needs to scale, it should be able to do so relatively easily.

We have about 300 users that log into the system at any given time.

We plan to increase usage. We have to extend our electronic fencing system to our other sites, and we will likely purchase another product from ProLiant when that happens.

How are customer service and technical support?

There's another team for technical support. The technical support is very, very good and the experience in our organization has made us interested in buying more HP ProLiant. We're quite satisfied with the level of support they give to us.

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

While the company hasn't used a different solution, I personally have experience with Dell. I generally prefer to use HP instead.

How was the initial setup?

The implementation is not complex at all. We find the initial setup to be quite straightforward.

The product was ordered and came complete and ready to go. It was basically plug and play, so that there really wasn't a deployment period per se. We just had to power it up and check the hardware. We put in the discs and had the spare parts on hand as well. They deliver it ready to go, so it's pretty fast.

We have five individuals that handle the implementation and maintenance. They are all engineers.

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

I don't consider it an expensive product. We're quite happy with the pricing so far. It's reasonable.

What other advice do I have?

We're just customers. We don't have a business relationship with HP.

We're using the latest version of the solution. We purchased Gen 10 about a year or so ago.

I'd recommend the solution to other organizations.

Overall, I would rate the product at a nine out of ten.

High-quality, user-friendly, and quick to install

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution has always been very stable and reliable."
  • "The solution is a little bit expensive."

What is our primary use case?

The solution is primarily used for computing and to do database allocations

What is most valuable?

The product is very easy to use. It's extremely user-friendly.

The solution has always been very stable and reliable.

It's a well-made product. The construction is very high quality.

We found the installation to be very easy. It also does not take very long to deploy.

Technical support has always been very good. They and knowledgeable and they respond in a good amount of time.

What needs improvement?

The solution is a little bit expensive. It would be ideal if HPE could adjust its pricing to make the product more affordable.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been dealing with the solution for more than ten years. It's been at least a decade. It's been a long time.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution has been very stable over the years. It doesn't crash or freeze. It doesn't have bugs or glitches. The performance is always reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is quite scalable. If a company needs to expand the product, it can do so with ease.

We have about ten or 12 users of the solution at this time.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has always been very helpful and responsive when we have reached out to them. We're satisfied with the level of support they provide us. They've been very good over the years.

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

We also use Dell servers as well. However, it's based on the project and the client.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not complex at all. It's very straightforward and quite easy. A company shouldn't have any issues with the setup.

You can install it in less than ten minutes. It's a pretty quick process.

What about the implementation team?

We handled the implementation ourselves, in-house. It was very easy. Our hardware team, our engineering team, handled the entire process. We have eight engineers on-hand that can handle implementations.

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

The solution is not cheap. It's quite expensive. It seems less competitive than other options on the market.

You don't pay for a license; you pay for the hardware outright.

What other advice do I have?

We're an integrator. We can help clients set up the solution.

I'd recommend the solution to other organizations. It's a very high-quality product.

In general, we have been very satisfied with the capabilities of the solution. It's well made and works well. I'd rate it at an eight out of ten overall.

Robust, easy to use, and user friendly

Pros and Cons

  • "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."
  • "In DL 500 systems, the flow of air is not good enough, and some components get overheated. IBM systems have better airflow and scalability. We have a data center that has limited physical space. Therefore, we need to maximize the processing or compute systems that we use. In HP servers, such as DL 500, there are only four processors, whereas IBM servers, such as SR 916, have eight processors. We don't get any support from HP because of our geographical location. We solve all problems ourselves by doing research on the internet. It would be good to get HP support."

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.

What needs improvement?

In DL 500 systems, the flow of air is not good enough, and some components get overheated. IBM systems have better airflow and scalability. 

We have a data center that has limited physical space. Therefore, we need to maximize the processing or compute systems that we use. In HP servers, such as DL 500, there are only four processors, whereas IBM servers, such as SR 916, have eight processors.

We don't get any support from HP because of our geographical location. We solve all problems ourselves by doing research on the internet. It would be good to get HP support.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using HP products for six or seven years. We use HP Proliant DL 300 family and DL 500 family and blade servers like Enclosure C7000.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It works fine for general use or specific use of most enterprises, but for mission-critical servers, I don't think it is the best fit.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

IBM systems have better scalability.

In our company, we have about 4,000 users. We also have a lot of outside users.

How are customer service and technical support?

We haven't had any technical support yet because our country is not in the technical support area.

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

We have been using HP products from the beginning.

How was the initial setup?

In the latest versions, such as G9 or G10, we have a very user-friendly installation. It took about 30 minutes to 1 hour. RAID is easy to install, and so is the server, but in earlier products or versions, it was somehow challenging. 

What about the implementation team?

I deployed it myself. We have about six persons for the deployment and maintenance of the servers. They are system administrators for physical servers. For virtual environments, we have different teams to administer the use of our environment.

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

We have ILO licenses. We use this feature.

What other advice do I have?

HPE ProLiant DL Servers are easy to use and suitable for mid-range users. HP has other products for enterprise users. I don't compare them with this family. We had the physical servers for all services, but now we are migrating to virtual servers using VMware.

I would rate HPE ProLiant DL Servers an eight out of ten.

Stable with a straightforward setup and good performance

Pros and Cons

  • "The hardware is reliable."
  • "The solution should work to be more scalable."

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use it for our own servers. Basically, we use it for anything we need to have it for, including our servers, our appliances, and virtualization.

What is most valuable?

The solution has excellent management capabilities. The iLO is very good. It's got excellent stability and provides a solid performance.

The hardware is reliable.

To deploy one server takes less than a day. You don't need too many engineers.

What needs improvement?

The solution should work to be more scalable.

The pricing of the product needs to be better. Right now, it's quite costly.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for five or six years at this point. It's been a good amount of time.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability varies. However, you need to buy the size, and then you are stuck up to that level for the most part. Gen8 I wouldn't describe as scalable at all as you can't get Sparx for it. The solution is changing, however. Maybe in a few years, you will be able to. However, in general, the scalability is lacking.

We have 50,000 users and they all, in one way or another, use the servers.

We plan to continue to use the solution until its end-of-life.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not overly complex. It's pretty straightforward.

To install one server, it takes less than a day. Most of the time there aren't any issues.

You don't need too many people to deploy the product, however, it depends on how many servers you are setting up. For a few servers, you need few engineers and no more than that.

What about the implementation team?

We installed the solution ourselves. We did not need a consultant or implementor to assist us. It was handled in-house.

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

The hardware is expensive. It needs to be cheaper. If they could work on that a bit, it would be very helpful to customers.

What other advice do I have?

We use a mix of versions, mostly Gen8 and Gen10.

We've been quite satisfied with the solution overall. It's good hardware. I'd recommend it to organizations that mostly would be using Dell or HP servers.

I'd rate the solution, on a scale from one to ten, at an eight. We've been quite satisfied with the level of performance we get, and their general stability.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
