HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review
Scalability is the most valuable feature for us.

Valuable Features:

Scalability is the most valuable feature for us. It also has a great price point for cutting edge technology.

Room for Improvement:

Because we buy so much storage, we have a lot of headroom that we may not use for six-12 months. So what we'd like to see is the booked-capacity piece which has recently been introduced at HP Discovery London. 

We'd also want tighter integration between NetApp and HP.

We also had stability issues with older versions.

Deployment Issues:

It has deployed without issue for us.

Stability Issues:

We've had no issues with instability.

Scalability Issues:

It scales just fine.

Technical Support:

We get great support with self-logging directly so that HP contacts us for quick fixes. But we get disc failures frequently, although there's no interruption to business because that's the way storage arrays are designed to work.

Previous Solutions:

At my prior employer, we used EMC and NetApp, which were stable platforms and environments. A lot of it comes down to how you deploy. 3PAR is also a great product, but you can still deploy it incorrectly.

Initial Setup:

We used HP best practice and we consulted HP. We got it right and it works well for us because of that.

Other Solutions Considered:

  • EMC
  • NetApp
  • Whiptail

The storage team tech lead chose HP over these.

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