What is most valuable?
It handles the structure of our system easily and provides us with really good performance. We have the older systems and not the new ones with the 7400. They all mesh together well and we've been able to move data from the old to new easily. It's also easy to code.
How has it helped my organization?
We use all of HP's services, so HP is a big partner of ours. Staying with HP for storage means we don't need to switch partners.
What needs improvement?
I'd like to see just a little bit more virtualization so that as I work on the front end, I can make any necessary disc switches. I'd also like to see expanded correspondence systems.
What was my experience with deployment of the solution?
We had no issues with deployment.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
We've had no problems with firmware, so all of this is really done smoothly without interruptions.
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
We've always been able to upgrade easily and now have three or four kinds of upgraded systems.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
We switched because HP is stable and reliable.
How was the initial setup?
We needed HP specialists to help stand up the 3PAR systems. It was a little tricky. After that, things were straightforward.
