HPE 3PAR StoreServ Review

High performance, proactive support, and we have had no problems with stability

What is our primary use case?

We use this product for our server storage. Our systems are primarily used for ERP.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the proactive technical support. If there is a problem then the HPE facility will detect it and immediately contact me.

It achieves very high performance.

What needs improvement?

The price is a little bit high.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the HPE 3PAR StoreServ for the past five months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In terms of stability, our experience has only been good. We have not had any problems in five months.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I think that its scalability is good. You can have up to eight storage units and you can vary the storage rate. For example, we need quick database storage so we rate that high, compared to some other applications of lower importance.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to this, we used the HPE3PAR StorServ 7200 series. With that version, sometimes the hard drive was broken. It's not about storage, but rather, it is about how the hard drive operates.

How was the initial setup?

The deployment took about two weeks to complete.

What about the implementation team?

One of the HPE partners deployed this solution for us.

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

We paid for five years of support when we purchased the product.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated a solution based on NetApp and ultimately, we decided to implement HPE.

What other advice do I have?

There is a storage replication feature that I think is nice, although we don't use it right now.

For us, this product is a very good, full-flash storage. The suitability of this product depends on the organization. It comes down to a combination of the performance and the price.

I would rate this solution a ten out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
