Currently, we are finishing the possible quotation to upgrade the 3PAR we have here in Portugal.

The initial setup is straightforward with the help of the technicians from the company.

The deployment was completed in one week.

What about the implementation team?

We had help from a consulting integration company for the deployment.

We also have a production team of 34 admins and engineers to deploy and maintain this solution.

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

We don't pay for any licensing fees.

What other advice do I have?

We would recommend this solution to others.

It works well and we don't have any issues with it.

I would rate HPE 3PAR StoreServ a ten out of ten.
