Overall Satisfaction with HPE FlexFabric

I work at a University and we currently use HPE FlexFabric to connect our core infrastructure at our data center as well as our backup data center. We use it as a higher switching capacity than the Aruba switch it replaced.
  • Switching capacity.
  • High availability.
  • 3 party Management tools.
  • Low latency.
  • High availability.
  • 10GbE internet.
  • Performs well under stress, it is the core of our data center for over 3 years without any failures.
  • Simplified our topology in our data center.
Aruba line cannot compete with the HPE FlexFabric, we got nowhere close to the performance when using the Aruba and the Aruba had a couple fan failures.

Do you think HPE FlexFabric delivers good value for the price?

The switch is intuitive and very simple to configure so I would recommend it to anyone for their data center. It allows for someone who might just be a server expert and not a switching expert to have a far simpler time than would normally be expected.
