We have two engineers for the maintenance of the solution.

There is only a one-time license purchase needed and no additional costs.

If HP could reduce the training cost, then that would be advantageous to the seller.

I rate HPE Primera a nine out of ten.

An enterprise storage solution that could take some tips from Pure Storage

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for a few weeks — we're in the testing phase. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I believe HPE Primera and Pure Storage are similar in price. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We're also testing Pure Storage. They're almost the same, but Pure Storage is fancier, easier to use, and offers more features than HPE Primera. The embedded file server, the GUI, and the tracking and reporting features are better with Pure Storage.

What other advice do I have?

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give HPE Primera a rating of seven.
