HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Other Solutions Considered

Dallas Widing
IT Manager at BouMatic LLC
I worked with the team from HPE. We looked at their solutions, and selected 3PAR. We also looked at Dell EMC and Nutanix. At the time, when evaluating Dell EMC and other SAN products against 3PAR out-of-the-box, 3PAR just was vastly superior to anything else. Working with the HPE team back in early 2014, they proposed the design. As it turns out, the SAN that we deployed in 2014 was the largest 3PAR SAN in the state of Wisconsin. I just have a long history of HPE. I've tried Dell EMC and IBM before. IBM sold its server products to Lenovo. I always come back to HPE, especially the ProLiant brand, just because of the reliability and consistency through all the generations. You can look at a ProLiant 1000, never having seen one before, but if you know a Gen 9 or a Gen 10 today, if you could find a Proliant 1000 that was still operating, then you would know how to go in and configure it. It is this type of consistency that keeps me with HPE. Dell EMC is all over the place. Lenovo has reliability issues. View full review »

We looked at NetApp. We also evaluated hyperconverged solutions like Nutanix, but it was not relevant at the time. And we were approached by HPE regarding SimpliVity but it was not relevant as well, at the time. We went with 3PAR because, at the time, we were convinced that this would provide us the solution that we need, from several KPIs that we were looking at. We were promised performance that we didn't get in the end. View full review »

System Engineer at NV GEBE
We are a fully HPE shop since 2000. Since then, we never really went over to a different vendor. We were approached by Dell EMC back then. They wanted to change up our whole server room and data center with their product. However, we are happy with HPE. View full review »

IT Infrastructure Manager at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
We did evaluate other vendors originally. We looked at Dell EMC and all the competitors in the market. We chose HPE because they had the best technology and performance. We have had a very good experience with 3PAR, so we will probably not be looking at different vendors or solutions. View full review »

IT Manager at a energy/utilities company
We didn’t really look at anybody other than HPE because we wanted a one stop solution for a single technical support problem, and we knew from Locigalis and from our years with HPE that they would give us an enterprise class solution the first time out. View full review »

We are an HPE shop. Everything that we have is HPE, so we just stuck with them. We have never been upset with HPE. They have been phenomenal, in my opinion. View full review »

We have looked at other vendors but a lot of them couldn't handle the capacity or the speed or the reliability that we needed. View full review »

Infrastructure Analysts at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
We did not look at other vendors beside HPE. We were one of the first adopters of 3PAR. We had one of the old T800s. We were early in the adoption of HP 3PAR. Management made a decision to go with 3PAR, because HPE came and made it appealing. View full review »

ICT Country Manager at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
We didn't have a shortlist. We worked directly with HPE. The reasons for switching to HPE were: * The performance. * The technology that HPE uses had more integration with our servers. View full review »

I would recommend looking at Nimble instead. It is a similar option and something that we are looking at now, though 3PAR has been a pretty solid product. View full review »

CEO at Jadeh Abrisham Rayaneh
Any action we want to do with a Dell EMC product needs a license. But with 3PAR's converged solution, at least there is no need to purchase more licenses to get all the features that we need. We can get basic and mid-range features without licenses. But for simple activities with Dell EMC, we need a license. Also, HPE is simpler than Dell EMC for the end-user. View full review »
