What is most valuable?

It has never failed and I have never lost data due to failure.

How has it helped my organization?

In general, my boss feels that HPE's prices are very high. In the future we will probably buy a cheaper system. Regarding EVA itself, it's an old system. If I had to suggest an improvement it would be good if they used active-active controllers. Now it is active-passive. But, as I said, this system… more »

What other advice do I have?

My most important criteria when selecting a vendor are * price * dedupe * compression. I rate EVA a 10 out of 10 because of its stability, ease of maintenance, ease of setup, Snapshots, and good user interface.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

In our most recent round, the vendors on our short-list were Reduxio, Pure Storage, and IBM Storewize.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do you think of HPE EVA?

Valuable Features

It's fast, reliable, and it's very good for the price.

Improvements to My Organization

A few years ago, we had a project for virtualizing all our servers. We chose HP products, services, and storage, including EVA, for this project. It worked out very well.

Room for Improvement

EVA needs to be more stable. Maybe HP should evaluate our problems and take some notes for future products.

Deployment Issues

The stability issues aside, the product deploys fine when it works.

Stability Issues

It could be just this particular model, but the storage is not so stable. We have three of them and all of them have one defect or another. We're now looking to make the choice to buy something new.

Scalability Issues

I can't say whether this scales because it hasn't…
