What is our primary use case?
We are using it for the storage for our on-premise servers, which are both Oracle workloads, as well as having many VMs. We have a lot of complex business needs around legacy things.
Our organization has been using 3PAR for about a decade. The performance has been good.
How has it helped my organization?
Everything runs smoothly.
What is most valuable?
The expandability is good.
HPE can login, fix things, alert us to things, and upgrade. We are there and aware, but we do not do the work. So, that is good.
What needs improvement?
There are some weird things that we can't figure out.
For how long have I used the solution?
Less than one year.
What do I think about the stability of the solution?
What do I think about the scalability of the solution?
How are customer service and technical support?
My team is happy with technical support. However, I have not called them personally.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?
We had EVAs before, then switched to an earlier generation of 3PAR.
What other advice do I have?
If you can afford it on-premise, and that is the way you want to go, then it is a good solution.
Overall, it has been a good product, and it is stable.
