HPE 3PAR StoreServ Review

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


What is most valuable?

Easy manageability, and the speed is very quick.

How has it helped my organization?

Less downtime, unlike our previous solution.

What needs 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.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

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

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

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

How are customer service and technical support?

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

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

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.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was straightforward.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

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.

What other advice do I have?

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