HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review
For us, the most important feature is reliability.

Valuable Features:

For us, the most important feature is reliability. It must be tough because we work in a hospital and we want it to be solid. It must work always, always, always.

Improvements to My Organization:

We count on that it works and it's always on; at a quarter of the price. The price and the reliability are key for us.

Room for Improvement:

We need faster disks, but their solid-state disk takes care of that. But they are expensive. I think the solution is to spend more money.

Stability Issues:

It is really stable actually. We never have unplanned downtime. It is really on call for us. We upgraded from the HPE EVA systems to the 3PAR and I think it's better than our last EVA system.

Scalability Issues:

We have had to scale up a couple times now because our imaging is growing about 30% per year. We cannot plan it; we have to upgrade it. The scalability is really good. We just put in more hardware and it starts to run.

Technical Support:

Technical support is not so good. They don't understand us and we don't understand them. We had quite simple questions and tend to be transferred somewhere else.

Previous Solutions:

Actually, it was HPE old technology. We really didn't switch anything. It's HPE already just old hardware, so we just upgraded.

Initial Setup:

I was not involved with the setup.

Other Solutions Considered:

We didn't consider any other vendors because we did an upgrade from old HPE hardware. We can trust it. The whole process works very smoothly. No downtime; that is important for us.

Other Advice:

We like the system, so I can suggest to a friend that 3PAR is okay.

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