HPE Primera Pros

Head of IT Infrastructure Solutions at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The features that I have found most valuable are the artificial intelligence for the storage inside of the software and firmware because customers do not like functionalities which require manual interruption.

All of the capabilities of the hardware such as replication, snapshot, and the specific features are all included from the start as opposed to being on another license.

The interface needs to be more user-friendly in that sense that installation and management are still a bit on the high end.

One of the drawbacks of the model we purchased is that it is not running NVMe drives. Even though they say that it is NVMe-ready, it is still on the SSD drives. The model that we purchased has only eight hard drives, and only the ones on the top could work on NVMe. The rest of them are still on the SSD. Its competitors, such as EMC and Pure Storage, are moving or have already moved to NVMe. HPE should improve this solution for NVMe. HPE should also improve IOs in this solution. IOs in HPE are weaker than Hitachi and Pure Storage.

The file server embedded in Pure, the GUI, and the tracking and reporting features are better with Pure Storage.
