Overall Satisfaction with HPE ProLiant DL

We are using these in our main data center with a bunch of other systems. It is mainly being used to host our virtual infrastructure of multiple servers. It is a very sturdy and robust machine and can handle high loads during our peak hours of activity. With these machines, we are able to remove our old desktop servers. The management and flexibility of deploying new servers have greatly improved.
  • Works well with high loads
  • Great capacity to add more hardware for future deployments
  • The support of HP is great
  • Cost effective
  • Fewer network ports
  • Less options for expansion drives
  • No front indicators for network ports
  • Reduce physical hardware footprint and space and hardware failures.
  • Great support
Cisco UCS Series is an enterprise-grade rack server offering from Cisco. It is a very reliable product and backed by Cisco's global support as well as a warranty. However, it is an expensive solution and not in the budget of many small to medium organizations. In these circumstances, HPE ProLiant DL servers give the best cost to benefit ratio and cost to performance ratio.
The technical support of HP is great. Whenever we have any issue whether it is a hardware fault or some bug in the software or even just a misconfiguration the technical support team of HP is always there to assist us. In case of a hardware failure, they quickly locate and replace the faulty component with minimal to no impact on our business.
We have been using these servers for many years now and we have used different generations of this product line. We have never faced a catastrophic issue using these and even the smaller issues that we have faced have been dealt with by the technical support team of HP. They have been a reliable partner in our data center.
