I don't have too many complaints. CLI is similar to Cisco, not too much of a learning curve. The company I work for is almost all HPE …

  • REST API capability
  • Wired & Wireless 802.1x configuration easiness
  • Wireless Access Points (APs) zero touch provisioning
  • Its high-end family (running the AOS-CX firmware) supports a virtualization technology called VSX (Virtual Switching Extension) which allows 2 switches to present itself as one virtualized switch under Layer 2, and as 2 separate routers under Layer 3; thereby providing high availability.
  • The AOS-CX family should have an easy way to backup their configuration rather than using an automation tool like Ansible or Python or Network Analytic Engine (NAE) to do it. Its PVOS family has that functionality which makes it easy to backup its configuration. That same functionality should be transferred to the AOS-CX family as well.
  • ArubaOS CLI commands should have backward compatibility with PVOS switches. These two are one company now.
  • I understand that there are a lot of automation tools now for orchestration and device management purposes but, adding the ability of Cisco's Embedded Event Manager (EEM) would definitely add to its pros.

  • Aruba switches are well built the modular power supplies are a plus.
  • Swithces are so silent you don't even know they are on.
  • VSF Stacking is easy to setup.
  • I would like for the Aruba CLI to also support HP CLI commands as well.

  • Some switch manufacturers require an additional license to be purchased to access some features. Aruba switches come with all features included.
  • The HPE Aruba lifetime hardware warranty is unbeatable. Not only are these switches very cost-effective but the warranty makes staying with Aruba switches a no brainer.
  • Aruba switches are very easy to implement and configure. A new switch can often be configured within a matter of minutes. Other switch operating systems have a much steeper learning curve.
  • I have had issues finding monitoring software that natively supports Provision/Aruba OS. Most are designed primarily with Cisco in mind.
  • HPE/Aruba switches have historically had issues with corrupt flash. This seems to be less common in more recent models.
  • HPE/Aruba's switching portfolio can be confusing. Some models run on the Aruba OS while some others run on Comware. There is some overlap in these model lines so at times is can be tough to tell which switch is right.

  • Stacking switches very easier
  • Enhanced GUI for those that hate CLI
  • They are releasing firmware updates constantly
  • They can enhance the cli a little bit more
  • Need to fix SNMPv3 to send more information instead of syslog type messages

  • You can make Stack. That is how we use them, using stacking cables to connect up to 4 devices in our case.
  • Better OS than old HP series.
  • Great GUI if you don't like the CLI.
  • They support 2 power supplies for redundancy
  • They need to improve on the delivery of traps to the NCM.
  • Traps and syslogs are sometimes too generics.
