HPE 3PAR Flash Storage Scalability

ITManagec405
IT Manager at a tech vendor with 201-500 employees
The scalability is problematic. We would like to scale with our current infrastructure but we can't. We need to actually buy additional components, not just add disks. We actually need to buy additional controllers and, eventually, another storage unit. So it's not good enough. View full review »

System Engineer at NV GEBE
It is very scalable and simple. The moment that you understand the product, it is straightforward to use. That is one of the most important things when it comes to our administrators. They don't like complex things. View full review »

Network Admin at a healthcare company with 501-1,000 employees
So far, we have not had to scale up. However, that day may be coming, and we actually provisioned our 3PAR to be scalable in the future. So, I think the scalability is pretty good considering HPE helped us design and implement it in a way where we can scale up when needed. View full review »

IT Infrastructure Manager at a university with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are just a customer, who bought a solution and are running it. We don't really do much about it. From what I know, the scalability should be okay. Generally, it was one of the reasons why we purchased 3PAR, because we believed we will grow, etc. However, it is difficult in the public sector if you can't do an RFP for a specific product. So, you need to live with whatever you buy or whatever is the best combination on the market. We haven't really purchase any more 3PARs after our initial buy, and that was a few years ago.

IT Manager at a energy/utilities company
We have not found the maximum scalability yet. For what our initial purchase was, we have been able to grow over the past five years. It has not limited us in anyway with our initial investment. View full review »

Server Analyst at a K-12 educational company or school with 51-200 employees
We could add more drive cages, so I'm sure it's quite scalable. We haven't hit our limits yet, so we haven't had to do that. However, it's supposed to be quite scalable. View full review »

Infrastructure Analysts at a financial services firm with 1,001-5,000 employees
The scalability is great, because if we need to, we can just turn on a blade and start paying for it. Also, if we want, we can shut it down, and the next month, we don't pay. View full review »

Marty Riedling
Systems Engineer Manager at Ingles Markets, Incorporated
The scalability is good. Our storage is small. We don't have petabytes. We have an 8200 right now and only have 16 drives on it. Therefore, we have a lot of room for growth. All-flash positions our organization for growth. Currently, we are using all-flash, and with the dedupe, it makes it cheaper for us to deploy than other systems. View full review »

We have already had situations where we had to optimize and put more space on the storage. It has been very simple to get done. We are happy with what we have in place. View full review »
Erik-Johnson
HP-UX System Admin at L3 Technologies Inc
It is very scalable. We can grow it up to the size that it will contain. Then, we have to move to another array, a bigger one, if we have to. However, my understanding is that is a pretty seamless process. View full review »

Computer Systems Administrator at a sports company with 501-1,000 employees
The scalability is alright. When we try to scale it, we do upgrades. The all-flash positions our organization for growth. If somebody comes to us who needs an application with performance, we have that already formulated. View full review »

PeymanMassoudnia
CEO at Jadeh Abrisham Rayaneh
The scalability has always been great because of one idea from HPE: no need for us to pay from the beginning for the full machine. We can purchase based on the budget of our company. This makes it scalable. It's great. View full review »
