Quotes From Members Comparing Dell EMC Unity vs HPE 3PAR Flash Storage

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
The multiprotocol support. It's supporting NFS, fiber channel, CIFS, and these kinds of things. The multiprotocol is very attractive.Because I always need to trouble shooting for IOPS & database (DB) performance issues. I can quickly focus on what is part of the issue. I can decrease downtime and can plan next year's extended capacity budget.Setup is simple.It has compression, which allows you to store more data than you would normally under the arrays.Replication of the communication object (COB) scenarios

Whatever failures you have, there is no single point of failure. So, any failure, you get an alert, you have time, you plan the fix, the replacement, and so on. So your operations are intact.We also use dynamic optimization to go between tiers.We have additional space in the enclosures for additional disks, so we can scale up without any downtime.If you design it right and implement it right, it's headache free. Just keep it there and it does what it's suppose to do.Previously, we were using EVA from HPE. When we moved to 3PAR, we noticed a reduction in footprint, reduced by more than 30%. We use the Adaptive Optimization, giving us a reduction in cost and with better performance.

Cons
Thick provisioning of LUNs.Maybe deduplication would be something that would be better to have. Also, it's a fairly new management interface, so work is still being done on that. But compared to other vendors and previous EMC storage, the Unity is really good.The EMC VNX Virtual Data Mover (VDM) software needs more improvement.Software updates have to be downloaded to the root of the device. This pushes the available space to 95% utilization.Firmware Upgrades in EMC Unity require you to manually download OS and Drive firmware, this should be integrated (Nimble does this). When you order an EMC Unity, you have to specify the block size. This is weird for me and even weirder that you cannot change this afterwards, you should be able to specify per LUN/datastore (Nimble does this as well).

We are still waiting for the compression feature to be deployed.We've had some issues when we were trying to upgrade, doing some firmware upgrades.We have had some challenges in the Arabic implementation and in migration, but for daily work, it's fine.We would like to see the ability to not only be integrated with hybrid IT, but on-prem.Generally, the management of the multiple systems that we have is really the only problem, always having to go to all these separate tools to manage everything.
