What do you think of HPE 3PAR Flash Storage?

What is most valuable?: They work reasonably well. We've only had a couple of problems with them, and HPE knows about the problems. • What needs improvement?: On certain of their features that we have to use to migrate data, it tends to go off for about 60 or 90 seconds toward the end of the work. • What do I think about the stability of the solution?: The stability is pretty good. • What do I think about the scalability of the solution?: It's scaling where we need to go. The issues we have are more the application not scaling. Application design issues, not hardware issues. The hardware will go further than our application will. • How was the initial setup?: Initial setup was relatively straightforward.
