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

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It has very good performance for an application which needs lower latency and a better response, for example, in microseconds.Linear performance – The XtremIO wasn’t the fastest in all tests against other all flash arrays, but even with a massive workload, the response time and user experience were absolutely predictable with no sharp drop-offs.Speed and reliability:It is great for applications like Microsoft Exchange, ERP, SQL and VDI; basically saved the VDI buy-in from users, as now performance was seamless in comparison to a physical PC.Thin storage allocationThe guaranteed sub-millisecond response time for a 4K block.The speed is extremely valuable.Performance and deduplication. This is a very robust block storage option that offers both performance and data optimization.

The optimization features move chunklets or hot spots to faster drives.The 3PAR tool is cheaper to maintain with more storage available.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.Since it's being used to support a virtual infrastructure, that gives us access to all of the benefits of a virtual infrastructure. So, instead of spending hours trying to rebuild or to fix a broken server, we can instead wipe it out and throw up a new one and we're up and running again.I like the speed capabilities that it provides. The deduplication features definitely have some huge potential. The latest firmware, where they've enabled compression for workloads that aren't very good for deduplication, I can definitely see huge potential there.It provides ​very fast deployment. The performance for our most critical applications is very quick.Thanks to HPE remote IT assistance, they can do the updates with the configuration in best-case scenario.It is easy to scale, easy to manage, and easy to configure.

Cons
The GUI could be modified more in terms of how the different components are linked to each other.Native data replication: To replicate data between XtremIO devices, you need to use EMC’s RecoverPoint appliances to move the data.I would like hardware capacity additions to be a little more flexible. The upgrade path for the existing XTremIO units requires you to purchase 2 XBricks at a time and they need to be the same capacity as the existing XBricks.Get rid of the Java aspect of the GUI console.Management: At the time, there was no snapshot scheduler, so I had to write XSnapCourier to address it. The sad thing is that even after the newest release, which includes a native scheduler, most customers using XSnapCourier chose to stick with it due to a more feature-rich experience.In some cases where we don’t need the flexibility of the virtualization layer, we could free up resources on the VPLEX by using the storage replication.The physical architecture could use some higher levels of redundancy.Ease of use is key in the converged and hyper-converged world that requires administrators to have both hypervisor and storage skills.

The management interface is not intuitive.Extending is not a problem, scalability is okay. But once you buy additional box of disks, you have to wait for HPE to contact you with their plan for implementation, for connecting, and it can take several weeks. So, you have the box and you have to wait for several weeks to actually implement it.I would like to see more virtualization: storage virtualization, data virtualization would be very nice.HPE has a product that I am very interested in, but it lacks of integration with 3PAR - HPE SimpliVity.I would like them to improve it so I can do firmware upgrades without downtime.Would like to see ​some management functions through a web interface.​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.We would like to see the ability to not only be integrated with hybrid IT, but on-prem.

Pricing and Cost Advice
With some workloads that benefit from compression and deduplication, costs are actually better than some tier 2 subsystems (while latency remains <1ms).It is costly but worth it.Don’t buy this array. You’re paying for loads of magic beans, since it’s mediocre at best for a platform in a rapidly growing field. Look instead at Pure Storage or something with variable block deduplication. You’ll end up spending less and getting a better product with actual support.XtremIO is pretty straightforward about pricing. However, you need to look at your data so you can estimate, with the advice of DEL EMC, what data reduction ratio you will reach. In our case, a 3:1 reduction ration gave us a positive case compared to other storage arrays.It is great when a product can deliver high-end performance capabilities while offering a very competitive price point.It's not cheap, but it absolutely gets the job done. I don't have any real comment regarding licensing specifically.This is the best flash array on the market for high-end workloads, so expect to pay for that. But the support subscription cost is fixed for seven years, which made it easier for us to plan on the maintenance costs.Pricing and licensing are in line with other products from other manufacturers. You get what you pay for.

As a school, we always have​ low budgets. We are a nonprofit organization. We do not have too much budget, so we care about prices, discounts, and especially about the product quality. The last 16 years, we have been an HPE customer. We are very much happy with HPE products.Nowadays, from a storage point of view, there are so many vendors in the market. So cost is one of the factors that pushed us to go with HPE 3PAR. Cost-wise they're pretty competitive.The main issue with 3PAR right now is its cost problem. Right now, there are some other storage cabinets that can do what 3PAR can do. Now, they can do it as well with a more revised budget.To be more competitive, as customer, we need a more aggressive price that includes all the licenses available.It's very reliable and it was cost competitive with other arrays at the time that we purchased it.
