HPE 3PAR StoreServ Review

Performance is good, it's cost effective, and we've had no downtime

How has it helped my organization?

It's the basis of the storage of one of our five companies. All ERP and customer products rely on 3PAR storage. It's used heavily every day.

What is most valuable?

It's fast and it's affordable.

What needs improvement?

No complaints. 

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No downtime, it's stable, and they are very happy with it.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I can't say anything about this because they bought the necessary size two years ago, and they don't need to expand for now.

How are customer service and technical support?

The support is good. Fortunately, we have not needed to call them many times.

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

It's much better than two other platforms we have, one of them is EVA4400. EVA is less affordable and not as powerful. It works, but it's very much less powerful. For example, six months ago during a restore, the production environment was completely blocked, it worked slowly. This doesn't happen on full-flash 3PAR.

How was the initial setup?

It was straightforward. No problems.

What other advice do I have?

When we look to work with a vendor we look for 

  • response to our calls
  • affordability¬†
  • that they have been in the market many years
  • the cost.

I rate it an eight out of 10 for the reasons I've already mentioned: the affordability, the speed.
