HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review
It's a scalabe solution. We're planning on implementing the AFA in the future.

Valuable Features:

  • Wide striping
  • Ease of use
  • Dedicated ASIC
  • Thin Provisioning
  • AO and DO
  • Adaptive Flash Cache
  • Persistent Ports
  • Tiered storage
  • AFA
  • Funcitonality

Improvements to My Organization:

It enables growth from the existing array due to the thin provisioning suite.

Room for Improvement:

Ease of updating.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for three years.

Deployment Issues:

No issues encountered.

Stability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Scalability Issues:

No issues encountered.

Customer Service:


Technical Support:


Previous Solutions:

We previously used EVA, but as we are an HP house, we migrated to the latest HP offering due to the benefits.

Initial Setup:

Out of the box deployment is easy.

Implementation Team:

We implemented it ourselves.


It's an excellent, scalable solution.

Other Solutions Considered:

We also looked at EMC and PURE.

Other Advice:

Do it, you will never look back. We're not currently using 3PAR flash storage, but definitely plan to in the future. 3PAR AFA is the class leader.

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: We are an HP Gold Partner

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. HP 3PAR is racking up industry recognition as well! It was named best-in-class midrange array by DCIG. Here's a blog about that: Also, HP 3PAR All-Flash won the All-Flash Product of the Year Award from TechTarget. I have a blog that talks about that as well.
