HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review

We were looking for a solution to improve latency. We also needed a new solution because our Dell Ecologic was down often.

Valuable Features

Easy manageability, and the speed is very quick.

Improvements to My Organization

Less downtime, unlike our previous solution.

Room for Improvement

That’s hard to say because it’s pretty good for us. The areas that we would suggest for improvement, HP is already looking at.

Stability Issues

It’s excellent; no complaints. I’m very impressed with it.

Scalability Issues

I’ve already scaled it twice and will scale it again.

Customer Service and Technical Support

It’s also great. We’ve not really had a problem with it in over a year of use.

Previous Solutions

We chose HP to improve on the latency because we knew we needed something that could solve our new needs. Our last system, Dell Ecologic, was very bad and was down a lot.

Initial Setup

Setup was straightforward.

Other Solutions Considered

We looked at EMC and HP. 3PAR is using some very high quality software, so we chose HP. Dreamworks uses HP, so we figured it would do us just fine.

Other Advice

Look for something that is expandable and reliable. 3PAR is great.

Robert - sorry to read that you were driven to replace what you had because of reliability issues. That's never a good thing . Glad to have you as an HP Storage customer. For anyone that wants to learn more, here's a link to many HP 3PAR articles on my blog: http://hpstorage.me/1IAQhqU.
