HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Pricing, License Cost and Setup

Jeff Stone
Solutions Architect at Optio Data
I do not sell 3PAR all the time because it may not fit in with everything a client is trying to do. It is more about finding the right product for the solution. View full review »

We had to go back and purchase iLO licenses and brocade switches for the flex fabric to have a complete solution. View full review »

You can find cheaper storage but you pay for performance. 3PARs performance has been consistent. I have seen other arrays slow down as the load increases due to controller saturation. View full review »

Remember, you are charged per disk with a 3PAR array for licensing. Make note of this when considering future capacity. A smaller number of higher capacity SSDs can be less expensive than multiple smaller capacity disks. View full review »

Purchasing maintenance: You can't get software maintenance from a third party. You have to do it from HPE, which is a letdown. View full review »

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. View full review »

HPE is changing on the licensing way, because in the past, you had to apply for a license for everything. Now, they have made a combo for all the licenses, which is more helpful, but there are a few things which are not completely included in the product. Talking from a license point of view, to be more competitive, as customer, we need a more aggressive price that includes all the licenses available. View full review »

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 competitive. View full review »

Give 3PAR a good consideration. Budget wise, 3PAR is a lot of money compared to other solutions, but what is in the 3PAR integration that customers are getting now from the Nimble and InfoSight acquisitions, it is worthwhile. View full review »

My recommendation would be to engage professional services, if you have questions. We sat down and went through a very extensive (six to eight month) evaluation from the components. We visited some labs and other sites. Take advantage of what HPE offers as far as professional services, and this will help you make the right decision. View full review »

The new licensing model includes every function for the same price, and in terms of price, everything is possible if HPE is interested in getting the contract. View full review »

Speak with HPE and describe your whole scenario before buying it, so you do not buy and hope. View full review »

Always bargain with your local HPE account manager, the price could go down a lot if you know how to negotiate with them. For example, it could help if you tell them you have another brand of product on hand and it cost less than HPE, then they would likely offer you a huge discount for their product. View full review »
