We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
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.Provides High-Availability, security, and high performanceThey provide very good support for our mission-critical processes.If you can handle the IOPS, throughput is a natural byproduct. Usually, IOPS is where you are capped. HPE has done a great job in making sure that our IOP-intensive EMRs stay up and running. We have really good performance on them.It runs. I don't have a problem with it. If it needs an update, I can do it in the middle of the day with nobody being the wiser. It is phenomenal in that respect. As a hospital, I get two hours every quarter to reboot things, so it is imperative that nothing goes down.

Cons
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.We would also like to see improvements to the ease of administration of 3PAR.We do not use Memory-Driven Flash in the old 3PAR. Perhaps we will use it in the new 3PAR. That is part of the reason why we are upgrading.We don't use the solution’s deduplication functionality because of bad code. I have friends that have used 3PAR dedupe, and have heard horror stories. We took a very much wait and see approach and never enabled the functionality. We have no desire to do so.

Performance could probably be improve with faster controllers, but it is already an old device. We do have performance problems now, but it is a rather old device, so we have what we have.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.The only licensing costs are around 3PAR in the form the OS itself. You pay at time of purchase. It is capacity-based, and you have annual maintenance that you pay.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.
