It is ok in general but there are some issues that were hard to get resolution.
Do your home work before implement this one.
Documentation is not well writen.
the management interface could be more user friendly.

Upgrade was accomplished with a minimum amount of downtime. The phased upgrade was coordinated in an effective manner with the vendor to ensure major systems were not down for extended periods of time.
Ensure you know what systems you want virtualized and wha the effect of other systems will be after the upgrade. You don't want surprises during or after the upgrade for users that can't access their data after the upgrade.
Product has a very high reliablity.
Nothing yet. But it was costly.
Nothing, the vendor was very supportive of our needs.
Allow more time for post implentation testing.
The product is more than meeting our needs. It is capable of expanding as we continue to grow with having to completely replace everything and starting over.
As stated before, the vendor was there at every step of the implementation process. The upgrade teams were never left questioning what needed to be done next or how to perfom a task.
Even though the product was fairly easy to implement, the vendor was there for support at every stage of the project.

First blade implementation was in 2008 and haven't upgraded the backend blade support infrastructure. HPE should be proactively communicate with their customers with clear product roadmap.
There is not a one-size fits all solution. We've chosen HP because of the existing vendor relationship and reputation. However, I would open my options to more vendors with niche and specialized company.
Easy to support and maintain.
Unclear product roadmap.
I would follow more rigorous vendor/product selection process.
I would explore other vendors and open sources as well, such as VCE or OpenStack.

The overall expectation was a turn key solution with very little integration needed. However as we got into the implementation the integration and vendor management was extremely high.
Do a comparative analysis and a POC bake off that just does not look at design but operational readiness.
Integrated hardware and control layers.
Service maintenance and complexity.
Truly be the 1 stop solution provider for this implementation.
Do more research on all vendors , 3rd party service providers and more engagement from internal partners.
