HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Review
No single point of failure; alerts give you time to plan the fix, the replacement


How has it helped my organization?

If you design it right and implement it right, it's headache free. Just keep it there and it does what it's suppose to do. Gives us peace of mind.

What is most valuable?

  1. Reliability
  2. The support channel

What needs improvement?

Nothing comes to mind. Most of these products usually come with more features than you need.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Whatever failures you have, there is no single point of failure. So, any failure, you get an alert, you have time, you plan the fix, the replacement, and so on. So your operations are intact.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of scalability, I think it will meet our company's needs for the near future, but, later on, no. I don't think it will. It's not because it's not scalable, it's just that technology changes so much. Three or four years, you get something new.

How is customer service and technical support?

The support channel, you open a ticket, they follow up, the replacement part comes to your doorstep in a maximum of three working days. And the price we paid for that, upfront, is very minimal. So, when you buy an HPE product, if you pay, say 10 or 15 percent more, you get the Care Pack for a total of five years. Other vendors, they charge much more for the same deliverables.

What other advice do I have?

When looking to work with a vendor I would look for manageability features. Monitoring, central monitoring, alerts, mass deployment, functionality. If you have one server, two servers fine, but if you have 100, these pay back easily.

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