"HPE Synergy combines storage, compute and network equipment all-in-one"

What do you like best?

I like how HPE Synergy's built-in software has the intelligence and technology to boast excellent auto discovery capabilities. Also, the software's fluid resource pools allow customers to immediately start up the infrastructure and have it be ready to run physical and virtual applications.

What do you dislike?

You definitely pay a premium for the highly advanced software and that is understandable; however, it does make this product a bit expensive. That being said, it is difficult to find a perfectly similar competing software and once I found HPE Synergy I became more than okay with paying the premium.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Another perk is definitely that HPE Synergy builds upon application specific templates which allows infrastructure to be used/applied and constantly updated. These templates make it increasingly easy for for customers to use composable infrastructure in a way that meets the needs of each of their applications.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The Composable infrastructure that HPE Synergy offers allows our IT system to manage infrastructure as code and thus optimizes application performance. HPE Synergy has helped our IT team reduce infrastructure costs, provide flexibility as resource needs change and also allows our company to get to market faster with speedy business critical applications.

"Comprehensive &. versatile infrastructure that is effortlessly beneficial!"

What do you like best?

I’m very fond of the composability of the infrastructure, so being able to build our own server profiles, then build up the infrastructure that we need from compute modules is very much convenient and beneficial. Just automating all the management tasks that we have for our server hardware has been incredibly helpful.

What do you dislike?

We experienced few to no problems, but one of the issues that we did have is with the firmware baselining. We would also like to see SaaS connectivity and sharing of storage between frames sometime in Synergy’s near future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Synergy gives time back to our operations team and helps us track and report automatically to HPE for any questions, concerns or issues. Also, storage, networking and computing is combined in one chassis, so you save a lot of extra space in the datacenter which is also quite helpful.
