HPE System Management Homepage

HP System management is suited in an environment that utilizes HP servers and other computer equipment. Since this software integrates with the equipment it gives the best view of "what's going on inside". It's also provided with the purchase of HP Servers and other associated HP system equipment

Pulseway

Pulseway is well suited for just about any situation where there is a need to remotely monitor and manage computers. The most basic features are available to anyone with a free account, so even a home user can set it up and use to keep an eye on computers. The more sophisticated features require a fairly inexpensive subscription, but are well worth the cost for a business wanting to monitor the health of their servers, etc.My experience with Pulseway is limited to using it in situations where there are fewer than a dozen or so computers/servers being monitored. I'm not really sure how well it scales up, so I can't say if it is a good solution for a large corporation with hundreds or thousands of machines that need to be monitored.

  • The mobile application is very convenient and easy to use.

Pulseway

  • It would be nice if they increased their scope of supported third-party apps.
  • It would be great if they would create an ios app for their ticket system.
  • If they could possibly build in a location service for tracking devices, that would be helpful.
  • If they had two-factor authentication, it would be nice.

Pulseway is very user friendly. The system is labeled in terms and grouped together by function so that anyone can understand and locate the functions that they need. We use this system to monitor a file server that we have that can have an unstable power supply. This allows us to easily see that the system is offline and get it back to operational with minimal downtime.

I haven't really needed much support for Pulseway, so I can't really say a whole lot about their support. Pulseway has been pretty much trouble-free for us. There are regular updates and new features. The updates never seem to break anything or cause problems. It just works.

Pulseway

Pulseway is best suited for small to mid-size organizations. Its design and cost structure lend themselves to being extremely useful for organizations that don't have a huge IT team but have significant IT infrastructure. Most other tools are more difficult to implement or have a much higher cost. Pulseway is the best of both worlds.

Return on Investment

HPE System Management Homepage

  • Since this software integrates with HP hardware it gives a clear view of system issues. This is a very positive step when trying to troubleshoot physical server issues.
Alex Gouskos | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pulseway

  • Problems can be dealt with more rapidly because I have access to systems from anywhere. I don't have to carry a computer with me nor do I have to find a location with potentially non-secure wifi to gain access to my systems.
  • I can handle 99% of my system admin tasks using Pulseway and never have to touch a system or connect to the console.
  • Pulseway gives so much control over a system that I don't need to spend extra money on other software to perform management tasks.
