Pricing Advice

What users are saying about Pavilion HyperParallel Flash Array pricing:
  • "The licensing fees are very reasonable."
  • "This is hardware. They have a singular array that you can populate with your own disk, or you can buy the disks through them. For controllers, you pay for the components inside of the SAN, but there is only one chassis that they work with."

Good support, improves performance, scales well, and boosts team efficiency

What is our primary use case?

I use this product for high-speed parallel storage, multi-user asset storage, and production storage. Basically, it's the high-speed tier of our production pipeline and backend.

Pros and Cons

  • "There's lots of flexibility in how we use the resources while also maintaining a small footprint."
  • "I would like to see the management layer improved."

What other advice do I have?

We don't have anybody who is dedicated full-time to the management of this solution because it really doesn't need it. We have people doing maintenance on it who are responsible for refining and adding when we need certain things added or taken away. But, it's a fairly robust system that really doesn't need a lot of care, which is good for us because it means we can allocate our resources elsewhere. We have support through the vendor partners, so if there would be an issue, we can have them come out and they'll take care of it. My advice for anybody who is considering this product is to first…

We can replace the disks in the SAN without replacing the SAN, which is much cheaper

What is our primary use case?

We run a virtualized workload. Right now, we run everything on Pavilion, which includes our high performance databases and engineering tasks as well as Exchange and file shares. All that stuff runs on our Pavilion Hyperparallel Flash Array. We use block storage for our VMware infrastructure and are a complete VM shop. All of our files servers run on VMs, which use block storage on the Pavilion device.

Pros and Cons

  • "We have been able to consolidate storage into Pavilion. Pavilions are our only SANs because it is a bring your own disk solution. When new drives come out, we are able to take out half of the drives in the system, put in new drives, move our VMs over to the new drives, take the other drives out, and populate those with new drives. Then, we are suddenly twice as dense as we were before. NVMe flash is only going to get denser and cheaper so we can make use of that every couple of years by just throwing newer disks into it at a fraction of the cost of a new SAN."
  • "The rail system that Pavilion uses to mount up into a standard Dell or APC cabinet extends further back than normal rails, and they cover up the zero PDU slot. So, I don't like the rail system that comes with the device. That is my biggest complaint."

What other advice do I have?

I recommend the solution strongly. I am happy with everything about the solution, except for the rail kit. I would rate this solution as 10 out of 10.

Proactive and responsive support, straightforward to set up, highly scalable in terms of performance and capacity

What is our primary use case?

Our use case is for internal company engineering operations and DevOps. Both our DevOps and engineering operations teams have a lot of compute and data-intensive activities associated with them.

Pros and Cons

  • "The high performance is very valuable, as well as the enterprise reliability features."
  • "In our current configuration, we can only run the line controllers in high availability, active-standby mode, whereas we would like to see active-active implemented."

What other advice do I have?

We are planning to use HyperOS 3.0 but we have not upgraded to it yet. Our data ingestion rates have not been impacted one way or another, as it is not quite applicable to our use case. This unit is so dense and the performance is so high that the advice I would give is that if performance is a critical factor for your use case, then you really ought to look at this unit. Performance and scalability are the two key things you really need to look at because scaling is incredibly easy to achieve. If that's important and you want to avoid a lot of costs in purchasing extra equipment and more…
