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

Pros
This solution has given us improved application uptime and performance.Scalability, because our customer is fast growing and our solution should be able to start very small and grow very quickly.The chunklet technology is the main benefit out of 3PAR. The way it subdivides. It is using more logic to subdivide the drives into smaller pieces.With our 3PARs, we have never lost data.With the new flash arrays, 3PAR has improved our performance.The new StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) tool is more user-friendly.HPE can login, fix things, alert us to things, and upgrade. We are there and aware, but we do not do the work. So, that is good.3PAR is easy to keep running and does not require too much effort. It has been very reliable, which is key.

It's very fast. We were seeing read latencies of less than one millisecond. It is robust.

Cons
We would like to see dedupe and compression allowed on all drive types.Security is a mandatory feature because our customer needs to protect delicate information.I would like to see a faster Ethernet connection. Right now, it is 10G. If they could do multiple hundred gigs to speed up the transfer from the array to the servers, that would be good. We are trying to get away from Fibre Channel.We need additional enhancements to InfoSight, especially from a VM standpoint. Today, we can see in the Azure VM performance stats in 3PAR, but it is so huge, we can't just drill down on each and every VM and look at its performance.We are seeing that there are some enhancements which are required in the SSMC console. There are some features that we do not see in the dashboard.There are some weird things that we can't figure out.I would like to see the ability to be able to migrate to newer versions of the 3PAR without having to take any of our data offline and be able to upgrade on the fly.We would like to see better support for iSCSI.

It's somewhat scalable, but maybe not so much as some of the competition.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Making the decisions to buy it can be complex.Since the prices of the flash storage has gone down tremendously, I would definitely recommend going for the all-flash storage array or 3PAR. It is a big expensive even now, but it will be the future of all industries.You can't get software maintenance from a third party. You have to do it from HPE, which is a letdown.3PAR was quite a bit less money than EMC, and that was one of the deciding factors.We had to go back and purchase iLO licenses and brocade switches for the flex fabric to have a complete solution.Cost-wise, it is a little bit on the higher side, but it is an awesome product.We are going to buy eight nodes this year and eight nodes next year. Eventually, we are not going to want to buy large storage devices and probably utilize just storage, but in a different manner going forward.It is a little more money, but it is worth it because it does it better.
