HPE 3PAR StoreServ Review

A scalable, stable solution for database work with excellent technical support

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is for clusters, database work (Oracle and MySQL), and storage.

What needs improvement?

An area of improvement for this solution is an increase in the bandwidth as well as an upgrade of the storage functionality and capabilities. The storage needs to be expandable for future-proofing.

An additional feature I would like to see in the next release is for the management interface not to depend on Java.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using the solution for three and a half years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is easy to use and very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable, but we required an extension.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very good.

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

Previously, I used EMC VNX. We switched because we couldn't monitor anything unless we uploaded a data file to EMC and they send us back an analysis.

How was the initial setup?

The installation of the solution required three people and took three days, but for the storage-side, it took eight hours to get running.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
