Overall Satisfaction with HPE ProLiant DL

We use [HPE] ProLiant [DL] servers as the backbone of our infrastructure. Whether it be stand alone or clustered together, we find the performance is great and the manageability is simple. with features like iLO we are able to console into our servers, remote troubleshoot issues, gather diagnostics and reporting etc.

HPE [ProLiant DL] also makes it very easy to patch and maintain [HPE] ProLiant [DL] servers with there Service Pack for ProIiant. This is a quick and easy way to ensure that all ProLiant servers in our environment are up to date with the latest drivers and firmware revisions.
  • Affordable
  • Reliable
  • Scalable
  • intelligent provisioning can some times be a little buggy. I've had bad experiences with upgrading firmware from intelligent provisioning
  • Our servers have easily lasted 7+ years. we budget for 5.
I've used Dell poweredge servers and they were great too, but I found remotely deploying HPE hardware was significantly easier and faster.

One thing I love about HPE is when i got to deploy an OS remotely via iLO I can utilize the virtual media URL as opposed to mounting an iso. these eliminates the SSL overhead and the OS can be deployed in under an hour. Mounting an ISO has proven reliable but due to the SSL overhead it can take hours.

In addition i found im able to register my HPE hardware with HPE and they provide me a clean IT dashboard of all of my hardware and they give me alerts as to expiring support coverage, if a server is down or reporting an error. its a very solid and reliable solution all around.

Veeam Backup & Replication, Hyper-V
When we need new physical server hardware we go with [HPE ProLiant DL]. They are cost effective and they last. we have it as the back bone of our clustered Hyper-V environment and the hardware runs without issue. We also use it as the backbone of our stand alone servers as well. We have a [HPE ProLiant DL] backup server and the RAID solution on board allows us to easily add and expand our raid volume to meet our data storage needs with ease.
