HPE 3PAR StoreServ Review

We were looking for a way to simplify our storage management.

What is most valuable?

  • Virtual volume sets
  • Hosts sets
  • Remote copy
  • Snapshots
  • Storage tiering
  • We currently use SSD for a few databases

How has it helped my organization?

Our storage management has been simplified and the performance has improved.

What needs improvement?

We have a need for a LUNS larger than 16TB but this unit does not support it.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've used it for two years.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We had HP installers help with the setup and deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had an issue yet.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Not so far.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service is excellent.

Technical Support:

It's excellent.

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

An EMR upgrade forced us to do a hardware refresh and HP was chosen for several reasons including cost, performance, and ease of use.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward as HP did most of the setup.

What about the implementation team?

We a had a team from HP help with the installation and they were great.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at EMC storage.

What other advice do I have?

I would highly recommend working with HP directly during the installation process. We had the system up and running with production data one week after the equipment arrived.
