Overall Satisfaction with HP ProLiant DL

HP ProLiant servers are the core of our server infrastructure. We operate in a 100% VMware virtualized environment and use HP servers exclusively. They offer great value, performance, and reliability. Our existing servers have been in production for 5 years with issues. They run the full workload of our organization. The servers offer great longevity which translates into excellent ROI. HP continues to offer extended support our servers at a nominal cost for the next several years providing critical service in our 24x7 environment.
  • Rapid deployment
  • Longevity in the form of extended support and reliability
  • Cost effective solutions with excellent ROI
  • I would rate support and an area for improvement. The oversea call centers can sometimes present communication challenges. Luckily, the servers are extremely reliable and that helps us prevent for ever having to contact support.
  • Reliability: our servers have never experienced a critical failure.
  • Longevity: the servers are over 5 years old and will be supported for 2 more years.
  • Value: the upfront costs and ongoing support maintenance have been under budget.
I formerly come from 100% Dell shops. I was thrust into an all HP environment and I was pleasantly surprised on how well the ProLiant brand solution stacks up to Dell PowerEdge. I think the HP solutions might scale better than Dell in a larger environment, but Dell has made in roads into that area. For organizations of our size, the two are pretty on par in terms on cost and features.
VMware unlocks the incredible value of HP ProLiant servers. The two solutions interoperate well. ProLiant is a solution brand that can scale from 2 to hundreds of servers and effectively serves both small and large deployments. I'm not certain there is a situation where ProLiant wouldn't be an effective solution.
