HPE 3PAR StoreServ Review

Provides our clients with high performance and reduced storage through dedupe and compression

What is our primary use case?

As a partner, we use it to run databases and for virtualization. Another use case is the cloud.

How has it helped my organization?

All-flash provides optimization through deduplication and compression and provides high performance for both databases and virtualization. It has increased IOPS by 200 percent. In addition, it has reduced deployment time by ten percent.

One of our customers, using SAP, had 16 terabytes of data. When we implemented this solution for them, their storage was reduced to two terabytes.

What is most valuable?

  • High-Availability 
  • Security
  • High performance

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvement in the product's scalability. As a partner, I had serious problems because of the competition from Dell EMC and Pure. It's definitely problematic. It needs to scale out better.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's stable and uses Call-Home. Support is 24/7.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The 3PAR solution has a problem with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is excellent. It's predictive. If my customer has a problem, they inform the customer of the problem and send any necessary parts. They also email the customer to let them know when they need updates.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy.

What was our ROI?

We see ROI after six to eight months, by using all the capacities of all-flash, including deduplication and compression.

What other advice do I have?

3PAR provides high performance and HPE's service is good.

In terms of HPE GreenLake, we have just introduced this service to our client. We expect it will help with our client's capacity management efforts, but for now we have just presented and explained the service.
