What is most valuable?

We went through a whole data center refresh cycle and one of the things is that we needed to look at our disk system. Everything was for spinning disks, so we decided to make the leap to an all SSD data center. We brought in all the competitors, went through an RFP process and 3PAR came ahead. Some of the main things, for us, that we were looking for was the... more»

What needs improvement?

The one thing that we've always struggled with are the file sizes. With our competitor, we have had issues with the file sizes (I'm talking about the VMDK sizes) and how big a drive can be. HPE 3PAR, still, has a limit of 16 terabytes for VMDK limit and I think there is more to do in this aspect. There are ways to go around it but we still want DDUP and the... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The great value is the integration with the hardware and the software which really has great features that they develop over time. The system we bought back in 2012/13 and installed in 2013 is no longer in the system we are using now in 2016. This is because the software evolved so much and features were added to the system we purchased three years ago. It still... more»

What needs improvement?

The things I keep asking for are certain features which are now available but not to all the systems that are on the market. Sometimes they say we don't think the hardware you have can sustain this feature. We don't let you try it if it probably can't sustain the feature. There are other features where they say they don't support it on this type of spinning... more»

What is most valuable?

Our customers like the analytics side of it. I don't think there are any issues about the engineering behind the 3PAR. I think that has always been very strong. I have no hesitation about 3PAR from a technology standpoint.

How has it helped my organization?

It's the whole area of cost of operations, cost of management. When you have hyperconverged, you have one stack. It's a lot cleaner, it's a lot easier to manage.

What needs improvement?

We've been a partner for HPE for several decades now, so we've seen a lot of changes. HPE has never had a problem with the engineering or the R&D. The challenge for them is the conversation beyond a technical team. I just finished a call.... more»

What is most valuable?

When we bought it, the big sell for us was what they called "wide striping," how they striped the data and could get performance on a cheaper disk. Nowadays, the newer models that are out, which we are going to in the next couple of years,... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Backups were huge. We take a lot of SAN-level Snapshots and it has been phenomenal in that aspect.

What needs improvement?

In new releases, I'd really like to see it more targeted towards hyperconverged. They are working that way with Greenlake and integrating their own "build your own" expansion environment within 3PAR. I would like to see some of the InfoSight... more»

What is most valuable?

I like the speed capabilities that it provides. The deduplication features definitely have some huge potential. The latest firmware, where they've enabled compression for workloads that aren't very good for deduplication, I can definitely see... more»

How has it helped my organization?

The hope is right now it's going to empower us to lower mean time to resolutions. Since it's being used to support a virtual infrastructure, that gives us access to all of the benefits of a virtual infrastructure. So, instead of spending... more»

What needs improvement?

Automated reporting, real-time reporting would be excellent. Right now, most of the reports are ad hoc, so I have to say, "I want this report." I believe you can schedule them and have them go out to an email address, but it would be nice to... more»
