HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review

Systems respond quicker and customers do not have to wait as long as before.

What is most valuable?

Speed, it is because systems could respond quicker and customers do not have to wait as long as before.

How has it helped my organization?

System response time.

What needs improvement?

Cost, it is still fairly expensive, cost could go down to make this technology more popular in the market.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues.

How is customer service and technical support?

Fairly good.

How was the initial setup?

No comment, because we requested our local vendor to perform the setup and configuration for us.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Always bargain with your local HPE account manager, the price could go down a lot if you know how to negotiate with them. For example, it could help if you tell them you have another brand of product on hand and it cost less than HPE, then they would likely offer you a huge discount for their product.

What other advice do I have?

Remember, the initial setup only covered the default configuration, you have to know what you need before you know which configuration settings suit you the best.

Hardening is another issue.

All the SSL options, default password, and cipher suite are other issues which we looked at very carefully.
