Find out what your peers are saying about Dell EMC XtremIO Flash vs. HPE 3PAR Flash Storage and other solutions. Updated: March 2020.
405,901 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
We mostly use it for backup, because we cannot measure anything, and we are afraid to use it for surveillance systems. We were planning to use it for mostly for surveillance systems.
The most valuable features are that it is fast and reliable.
We've seen great enhancements from the performance point of view. There's good availability, stability, and continuity, but the performance actually has increased by 60 or 70%.
I like the deduplication and auto-tiering features.
The solution's most valuable feature is its high performance.
The solution's most valuable features are the inline data reduction and deduplication.
The program is very stable.
The most valuable features are: complete performance and ease of use.
The most valuable feature of this solution is the native full mesh (multi-pathing).
Remote-copy provides high availability and disaster recovery for the connected clients.
Any action we want to do with a Dell EMC product needs a license. But with 3PAR's converged solution, at least there is no need to purchase more licenses to get the all the features that we need. We can get basic and mid-range features without licenses.
Technical support for both 3PAR and Dell EMC in my country, Iran, is very difficult because we are under sanctions.
We have been able to scale faster and get our applications out in much less time. We don't need to worry about the platform's ability to manage the workload, so we are pretty happy.
The InfoSight feature helps us with troubleshooting problems in our environment.
We can do more, faster, whether it's spinning up more virtual machines or handling large amounts of data.
The availability of the server has given us increased stability in our environment.
One thing that should be improved is the reporting and monitoring tools. It should use real time monitoring for storage, IOPS, latency, etc.
The management should be improved and the GUI interface could be better and easier.
The solution needs to be simplified. When you integrate your storage with other systems, could use a little bit of automation.
The product could be improved by reducing the pricing and having better organization in their technical support team.
The implementation isn't exactly complex, but the solution should have some enhancements in it to make the process more centralized.
This solution is geared toward enterprise-level companies. Small and medium-sized businesses would find it extremely expensive.
I would like to see more scalability.
It is very expensive to scale. You have to buy an additional system to extend from one disc, for instance. It is scalable, but extremely expensive to do so.
I would like to have support for On-The-fly reallocation Data when using VVoL.
The cloud-based monitoring Infosight would be better if users are automatically enrolled in the cloud/group based on the configuration or information gathered or uploaded on the internet.
I give it an eight because of the support, that I can't get support in my country. This is the worst part. Support cannot be sold until we are out of the sanctions.
I think cloud integration would probably be the biggest part, because that's where everyone is going and the seamless integration between on-premise and cloud is an important part of any IT strategy today.
This solution is becoming dated.
We had a minor error when we were configuring this system, which initially detracted from its overall stability.
This solution should be easier to use.
I would like to see improvement in the product's scalability. As a partner, I had serious problems because of the competition from Dell EMC and Pure.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The initial purchase price was good but when you need to upgrade, it's a different story.
There are costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
It is expensive if you need to increase scalability.
The cost is reasonable given that the licensing is all included once you purchase it.
This licensing fees for this solution are merged with all of our HP annual costs, which in total are a couple hundred thousand dollars.
We do not have any licensing fees.
I would like it to be cheaper.
Our licensing cost are $32,000 annually.
For the entire six node cluster and the two 7200 units plus the Brocade Fibre switches, we financed it through HPE Financial. It was $850,000. We leased that and paid it off in October of 2018.
I have to renew support in October for the existing solution. That will cost me roughly $50,000 this year, which in the grand scheme of things, $50,000 is not that much compared to paying $850,000. However, it will be the last year that I'll be able to get direct support from HPE. Therefore, product has to be replaced in 2020.
We went with 3PAR because we have HP-UX systems. Since we already knew HP-UX, they offered us a significantly cheaper solution than the one that we had for storage.
