HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review

We previously used equipment with capacity limitations, but 3PAR is expandable on demand.

Valuable Features

One single rack with the ability to expand and grow as needed. We are not currently using flash, but probably will in the future for some database solutions.

Improvements to My Organization

We now have the ability to expand storage on-demand as needed. The application won’t run out of space as it's really easy to add a disk and continue without any interruption.

Room for Improvement

The management console could be improved, but the newest release already seems much better than the previous version.

Stability Issues

We haven’t had any issues or downtime.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Everything was fine when we needed support. So far so good.

Previous Solutions

We had aging equipment with capacity limitations.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at EMC.

Other Advice

We look at cost and scalability. We’ve had room to grow as needed based on demand or business needs. We now have 1500 global users.

You should look at 3PAR as it's flexible, stable, and provides the growth and stability you need from a storage solution.

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