HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review
We were looking for a way to simplify our storage management.

Valuable Features:

  • Virtual volume sets
  • Hosts sets
  • Remote copy
  • Snapshots 
  • Storage tiering
  • We currently use SSD for a few databases

Improvements to My Organization:

Our storage management has been simplified and the performance has improved.

Room for Improvement:

We have a need for a LUNS larger than 16TB but this unit does not support it.

Use of Solution:

I've used it for two years.

Deployment Issues:

We had HP installers help with the setup and deployment.

Stability Issues:

We haven't had an issue yet.

Scalability Issues:

Not so far.

Customer Service:

Customer service is excellent.

Technical Support:

It's excellent.

Previous Solutions:

An EMR upgrade forced us to do a hardware refresh and HP was chosen for several reasons including cost, performance, and ease of use.

Initial Setup:

It was straightforward as HP did most of the setup.

Implementation Team:

We a had a team from HP help with the installation and they were great.

Other Solutions Considered:

We also looked at EMC storage.

Other Advice:

I would highly recommend working with HP directly during the installation process. We had the system up and running with production data one week after the equipment arrived.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
