HPE 3PAR StoreServ Review

Increased performance and availability of our servers

What is our primary use case?

This solution provides flash storage for our servers. Our environment contains Linux operating systems, VMware, and some web servers.

How has it helped my organization?

The availability of the server has given us increased stability in our environment.

The mission-critical apps and processes that we use are our Oracle database, VMware, and some web services.

The All-flash positions us for growth because of its better performance, which means that our applications are faster.

This solution has improved throughput. It has helped when we deploy non-production servers.

What is most valuable?

This solution has great availability that works for us.

What needs improvement?

This solution should be easier to use.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not yet tried to scale this solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

I think that technical support is good. We have only had one report.

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

We implemented this solution when it was time to renew the servers. Prior to this, we used HP EVA, but it had reached end-of-life.

How was the initial setup?

Although I don't recall the details of the initial setup, I think that it was a little complex. The people that normally work with storage had to ask for help.

What about the implementation team?

We used a consultant to assist with our deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The vendors that we evaluated were HPE and IBM.

What other advice do I have?

The All-flash has better performance, which means that our applications are faster. Our performance has increased by twenty to thirty percent.

The biggest lesson that I learned from this solution is to try something before you reject it.

My advice for anybody considering this solution is to test all of the functions that the vendor tells you about. It is important to see how it works in order to see whether it suits your business.

This is a good solution, but it is not perfect.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
