Quotes From Members

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.""The solution has improved our throughput by helping us keep up with the demand and acquisitions that we have been going through.""The solution’s deduplication functionality works great. We are getting about a 16:1 dedupe ratio on our VM workloads.""It has allowed us to set up a fully functioning disaster recovery site with replication, which we have been able to configure between our 3PAR systems.""If it runs, and you don't know about it, that is the best thing that you can have in IT infrastructure. This is what 3PAR does for us.""The all-flash positions our organization for growth. If somebody comes to us who needs an application with performance, we have that already formulated.""The remote copy group failover is very useful and has helped us.""It allows us to cohost as needed. We are able to put more systems on one data storage system and it is still able to deliver the availability and speed that we need it to deliver."

"This solution provides us with easy management and great vendor support.""The most valuable feature for us is the combining of HA and SnapMirror.""The most important features are SnapVault, Snapshots, and SnapMirror.""For us, the greatest aspect of the solution is the fact that it just runs. It is amazingly resilient. That's very important to us, because we are basically, with some exceptions, have a 24/7 operation.""The most valuable feature is SnapMirror.""Data consolidation and visualization."

Cons
"We would like to see dedupe and compression allowed on all drive types.""I would like to have more details on alerting. It is not real granular right now. What It gives you is sort of basic, and we can't do a lot of tweaking on our own. We would like to be able to tweak some of the alerts for our team.""The onsite techs have caused outages.""The GUI was a little hard to figure out how to use.""I want artificial intelligence. I don't want anybody from my team to touch it anymore. I want the AI to do everything.""I would like to have single click upgrades because the process is cumbersome right now.""We've started to see an issue with the older models that we have. We've had issues where facilities would have unscheduled power outages or scheduled power outages and the 3PARs weren't able to come up successfully. We actually had an incident recently where it wiped data that we didn't anticipate would be wiped.""Upgrades could be improved. We would like to see more upgrades."

"Dedicated storage efficiency accelerators could improve the overall performance of the system.""Currently, the newest release is not HCI friendly.""Technical support needs to be improved, as there are no longer partners in our country.""The one aspect of the solution that's negative for us is also more unique to us due to the fact that we did a MetroCluster. The tiebreaker piece that does the monitoring of the two different locations, and determines if one is not talking to the network normally (or if it's truly down) is a little difficult. It feels like it was not designed from the beginning to fit well into the other pieces. It feels like it was thrown in at the last minute and it is not smooth.""If our customer needs a high-performance storage solution then we don't recommend this product.""The solution could do more than just data."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It makes for less administrative overhead.""We have seen ROI. While the costs were quite high at the time of purchase for our environment, the ease of use and the fact that it hasn't failed all the time, working fine, that makes it worth buying.""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.""We have seen ROI. We are able to see more patients now, bringing more money into the practice.""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.""Our licensing cost are $32,000 annually.""I would like it to be cheaper."
