What is most valuable?

Its biggest feature is the ability to do a lot of stretch clustering. When I look at a couple of the other arrays, sometimes I have to put extra layers on top where I can do this natively. It works with Hyper-V, VMware, and physical servers.... more»

How has it helped my organization?

A lot of it has to do with its ability to stretch between data centers. It has helped a lot for times when our customers do DR testing. Instead of having to spin down and spin up, I can do it live and seamless. Therefore, I do not have to... more»

What needs improvement?

Some people are talking about getting NVMe drives in with faster flash. However, I think that is on the roadmap. I was at Aspire this year, and they were talking about the next chassis and they are ready for it. It is just a matter of getting... more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the uptime. It doesn't go down. You can do firmware updates on it, no issues.

How has it helped my organization?

At one point, we had HPE EVAs and when we were changing them out we didn't just look at 3PAR, we looked at all the solutions. We actually started out with a V400 which is an older version of the 3PAR - they didn't have the 7400s as yet - at... more»

What needs improvement?

Integration with some cloud services would be nice. That's not so much of a 3PAR thing, it's more of an HPE dashboard and management platform. The 3PAR is also a part of it. We would like to be able to provision from the 3PAR and decide... more»

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»
