We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The pricing of this solution is good, which is an advantage that positions this product well."
"The most valuable feature is its ability to handle a high number of users while maintaining both stability and performance."
"Simple and extremely reliable."
"The availability of the server has given us increased stability in our environment."
"We can do more, faster, whether it's spinning up more virtual machines or handling large amounts of data."
"The InfoSight feature helps us with troubleshooting problems in our environment."
"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."
"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."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the native full mesh (multi-pathing)."
"If there is a problem then the HPE facility will detect it and immediately contact me."
"I do not like Hitachi NAS because it's an old-school NAS solution, compared to the other, newer-type solutions such as Isilon from Dell or Qumulo."
"I would like to see the inclusion of support for cloud-connectivity to providers like AWS."
"The monitoring tool is not well developed."
"This solution should be easier to use."
"We had a minor error when we were configuring this system, which initially detracted from its overall stability."
"This solution is becoming dated."
"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."
"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 would like to have support for On-The-fly reallocation Data when using VVoL."
"The price is a little bit high."
"The replicating software is pretty complicated. I probably would have put it on a sequence."
"This solution is priced well and there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"Costs are based on the features and it is a considerable amount."
"We do not have any licensing fees."
"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 paid for five years of support when we purchased the product."
"The SSD is a little bit expensive."
"This is not an expensive product but every time you add capacity to it, you need to pay for re-balancing."
"Its price is a bit high for adding another tree, but when we purchased it, it was okay with us. We had compared it with EMC and other solutions, and it was okay at that point in time. Our storage has a lifespan of seven to eight years. When you purchase it, you need to keep a headroom of around 40% to 50%. After three to four years, you generally plan for an upgrade. The price is not so bad today for two years or so, and within a year, I might find that I have to upgrade or increase the storage. This usually happens when there is a radical change or a new application has come that is consuming a lot of data, but generally, there is a plan for the amount of data that we generate and the storage upgrade."
"It is lower in price as compared to other vendors, such as Dell. As compared to Huawei, all storage solutions are expensive, including this one."
"It is a bit more expensive. IBM is cheaper than HPE in Turkey."
