  • Reliability - Very reliable. Great uptime and few issues.
  • Affordability - Great price/quality balance.
  • Scaleability, aimed at SMEs this serves our 400 server, 4000 user base, 50 TB storage well.
  • Support - HP quick and effective to sort out issues.
  • Firmware upgrades. We have had major issues on two occasions, causing extended downtime. HP was quick to help and resolve, but I am not sure why our simple implementation caused an issue that should have been picked up by testing prior to release. Once was bad, twice painful. The end result is that we purchased a unit solely to test firmware upgrades on, not really great for us!
  • Support life span. Units go end of life support after around 4 years, a little too short for us.
SME environments, those after quality and reliability. Price point is medium. Reliability better than the competition in our opinion.

Ideally suited for smaller IT teams, needs little technical skill once setup and running.

Start small and expand later, lands of options for increased storage space and configurations.
