HPE SimpliVity

I only know what I know...which is my IT world.Having two datacenters that were physical servers attached to a SAN that "attempted" to replicate and then migrating.For a SMB small IT shop that happens to have two datacenters already in place...this has been ideal.I can have a generalist maintain the system and we have a private cloud for DR with hardly any effort...the biggest gain by far!

Works well for our very limited use cases with over 50K endpoints. Has the proper information and UI required for investigating violations and resolving the cases. Our dictionary of terms to look for in content changes often, but isn't really that big. The system handles us changing the list quite often, but I can't speak to how well the system would work with a very large list - you will want to POC that use case before a purchase.

Pros

HPE SimpliVity

  • Deduplication and Compression - SimpliVity keeps the space consumption to a minimum. We currently have 60 servers running virtually and we still have room to grow. This really helps with the backups as we can have longer retention.
  • Backups - Ability to keep backups for longer and to create multiple backup policies for a VM is a breeze. You can have a backup policy for each datastore as well as a separate backup policy for the same VM.
  • Creating Datastores is very easy. No more messing around with LUNS and iSCSI. Just go to the SimpliVity tab and select create datastore and it's done. You can also increase the datastore on the fly as well as have a datastore bigger than 2TB.
  • File level recovery is included as well. The whole backup process in SimpliVity can help you do away with other software.

Cons

HPE SimpliVity

  • Upgrades are better than they used to be, but still complex.
  • Make existing RapidDR product integral, versus a separate licensed component.

Support Rating

HPE SimpliVity 7.7
Based on 3 answers
Support is very good. With proactive support, you are supported by an engineer in North America who answers the phone and immediately begins assisting with your issue. The folks I have dealt with in the last several years have been very skilled and it is rare to have a ticket open for more than a day or two. Issues affecting production are dealt with appropriately and are escalated within the support organization.

Symantec DLP works good for our very simple and low complexity use cases and I would highly recommend it for them. However, I can't speak to highly complex or advanced use cases that might arise in certain industries like finance. I would recommend that if you are seeking an Enterprise DLP solution that you absolutely must explore this product as one of the leaders in the space - not doing so would be negligent in my opinion.

Alternatives Considered

HPE SimpliVity

At the time we choose SimpliVity over Nutanix SimpliVity offered a much more robust and dedicated deduplication card. Another attractive quality of SimpliVity at the time was the fact that it used to be hardware agnostic with many competitive hardware manufacturers at the time. With HPE's purchase of SimpliVity, these attractive qualities are no longer as important or even factually correct.

Symantec DLP is the best. Put it in a head to head competition and it will win. However it can be a bit more expensive than other products so don't compare on price, compare on quality of product.
