Quotes From Members Comparing HPE 3PAR Flash Storage vs NetApp All Flash FAS
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It's advantageous in terms of the cost, in terms of the performance, and taking up less spaceWe can quickly see performance per CPG and per LUN. You can drill right down to see actual performance to the virtual volumes themselves. That's really goodOneView is a nice interface​It's pretty stable and scalable. I think we've only had a couple of issues, three disk outages in six yearsIt's reliable and it's fast

The ability to do SnapMirror or SnapVault for data resiliency and backupDeduplicationI would say the consistency with the ONTAP versions and the speed and performance from the flashThe in-line dedupe, and the compaction saves us a lot of space because most of our AFFs house VMware VMDK filesThe performance. The flash performance helps move data pretty fast

Cons
We've had some issues when we were trying to upgrade, doing some firmware upgradesHPE has a product that I am very interested in, but it lacks of integration with 3PAR - HPE SimpliVityExtending 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 itWe are waiting for compressionWould like to see ​some management functions through a web interface.​

Higher communication: I love the professional services and I love everything that everyone's able to offer us, but I find sometimes we're not aware of all the things that NetApp can doWhen you look at the competitors, they have some features available, for example on the deduplication side.​I think for us, improvement would probably be the changes in how the flash is actually used inside the system and how we manage the actual disk and stripes within the systemIt would be helpful if the compatibility matrix was a bit betterIt would be much better if you had it more like the way they do Metro Clusters, where they have a switch, and the storage is all attached to a switch

Pricing and Cost Advice
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 competitiveAs 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 productsThe 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 budgetTo be more competitive, as customer, we need a more aggressive price that includes all the licenses availableIt's very reliable and it was cost competitive with other arrays at the time that we purchased it

Once we did get into the NetApp ecosystem, we realized that the cost effectiveness was greater than we originally thoughtObviously depending on the price point, NetApp is obviously a little more expensive than your generic Dell SAN solution or whateverIt's expensive but we think over time all the prices are going to go downIt is pretty expensive compared to other solutions. I would give it a seven or eight out of 10 in price (where 10 is expensive) compared to similar solutionsOther vendors may come in at a cheaper price point, but you will pay in the end with management costs and downtime
