The biggest benefit is the fact that it's pretty much bulletproof; we never have any issues with them.We're able to move things around with more agility. I can take it off one server and slap it on another in a couple of minutes... And the speed is outstanding.I really like the new RMC (Recovery Manager Cental) software that was introduced with the 3.0 or 3.1 update. It allows us to use our data protector with our 3PAR and give it a nicer front-end than the SSMC did.You can scale it out almost indefinitely.Multi-tier storage was the primary reason that we bought it. I also love the interface that you use for administering it.It has been very stable. We've had very minor issues, but I've loved how HPE is proactive on letting us know. Usually, they let us know before we notice it ourselves and they already have a solution for us. It has been great that way.It is easy to add drives. When you add drives into it, it automatically recognizes them and spins them up.We have had it for about two years and had zero problems with it.

Cons
The administration and support (on the way that they delivered) was a little bit slow.

I would like to see more flexibility with the cloud. I've actually just been in a presentation about it, here at HPE Discover 2018, so those features are coming.It's still an older architecture, you've got a lot of physical spinning disks. I would imagine more the memory-based computing is coming.I'd really it to be able to interact with older 3PAR storage, and possibly even non-HPE. I would like to be able to pull stuff off of old things and bring it up to the standard that has been set, simply, quickly, and efficiently. That would be a really nice feature. Right now it is a big pain. It seems to work but we tend to get some latency behind.The only drawback on it is that tech support seems really busy. We get a critical notification when an important patch comes out, but sometimes it's a month before we can get this critical piece on because they just don't have time on their schedules to do it sooner.I would like to see more cloud-based integrations and more file storage capabilities.When you run across a situation where they aren't self-encrypting drives (SEDs), and you need SEDs, then you have to rip and replace everything to get there. It would be nice if they just came by default.We have had a few issues with it. We had our virtual environment lock up a few times on storage-based things. We think we have it sorted out, but maybe it came down to a configuration issue on it.I would like to see NVMe support, not only on the disk side, but also in the NVMe over Fibre Channel.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
The lifespan of the arrays are fantastic, so we can make them stretch for our dollar.Once the project goes in, it's only a small part of the overall spend, because there's training, there's implementation, there's architecture, there's a whole bunch of other things that are hiding behind it. It's done, but you haven't captured all the ROI.For the price that we were able to acquire it, we have seen it give us the performance and stability that we require to run our enterprise.They have added features, such as the compression and duplication, which have further increased our ROI.It is fairly inexpensive to scale.Budget wise, 3PAR is a lot of money compared to other solutions, but what is in the 3PAR integration that customers are getting now from the Nimble and InfoSight acquisitions, it is worthwhile.From a comparison of bang-for-the-buck, what you get for the money, I'd have to say they are one of the market leaders. Are there solutions that do it faster? Sure, but you're going to pay for it. 3PAR isn't the cheapest, it isn't the most expensive, but in my opinion, it's the best.Making the decisions to buy it can be complex.
