Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

"It's best features are its reliability and stability.""This is a good product with high capabilities and high reliability.""Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G Series is a very stable device.""We have many different types of replication, such as remote and drop local replication. All these features and licenses are already available. These are basic features available in the current model. Additionally, the performance has been good in our experience.""The performance was decent.""It is robust. It doesn't need too much troubleshooting. It is a good device.""The active-active option seemed to be working well and overall, it was a solid product."

"Its stability is the most valuable. It has soft alerts. When an alert is raised, we get a call from HP saying that there is this type of alert, and they need to do a remote session to check things. Similarly, for firmware updates, they get in touch to say that a firmware upgrade is required on your storage. They schedule a time and take control remotely to upgrade the firmware. In all such cases, there is no downtime. Everything is done when a full-fledged operation is going on. Its user interface is also quite good. We are quite accustomed to this user interface. We can easily take a look at the current usage or the amount of storage. It is quite easily understandable, and I can present those things to my seniors or other people who are not that tech-savvy, and they can easily understand what we are trying to tell them. We can easily show them that we are using around 87% of the storage, so we need to plan for another tree and things like that.""The intelligence around the solution is good.""There are a lot of screens for easy management where you can change some settings. But after a few years, the important settings were better after an upgrade, and all the vendors have other ways to upgrade their systems.""The features which are most valuable are the availability of the system and the management.""The initial setup was straightforward.""I like that 3PAR can remake the disk online. That's one of the best features because when we first started, that was the best. The team provisioning feature was also a good one. Those features are the best for me, provisioning and online optimization, and the tier you can have for storage.""This is a stable solution.""The technical support is good."

"The snapshot and clone operation functions can be made easier.""We moved away from this product because we were looking for an all-flash solution, and with our G1500 at the time, perhaps two years ago, they were just proposing more of the same technology.""In terms of what could be improved, it could use a better, faster web console and other consoles. It is so boring waiting, waiting and waiting for it to refresh.""We have not been able to procure more discs for upcoming projects and this has been a problem for us. Not having additional storage is going to be an issue. The solution is at its end of life and will be replaced soon.""A better user interface would be an improvement.""It seemed like every time we turned around it was a statement of work and we'd have to pay for something that our previous vendors would not have billed us for.""I would like to see an audit account set up such that the user can log in, see the configuration, and see the logs, but they cannot make any changes."

"This product has come to the end of its lifecycle.""I would like to see an automatic re-balancing system or functionality for adaptive optimization.""This solution only provides active-passive replication, as opposed to active-active.""The replicating software is pretty complicated. I probably would have put it on a sequence.""HPE 3PAR StoreServ has limited flexibility in building replication solutions. There are limitations to the number of IOPS the system can do. It's not bad as it is doing its job. However, for the application, if you need a toolbox, you can build everything concerning periodic replication modes of synchronous or asynchronous three-site, four-site, with supported cascading which requires you to buy an IBM product. It also takes a few hours to one day to upgrade the system and sometimes; it takes more time because, in some HPE 3PAR StoreServ 20000 Storage, you have an eight-node system. If you do an upgrade, you do it node by node and every node might take more than an hour.""There is a slight difference between what we expected and what was delivered.""An area of improvement for this solution is an increase in the bandwidth as well as an upgrade of the storage functionality and capabilities. The storage needs to be expandable for future-proofing.""The cloud-based monitoring Infosight would be better if users are automatically enrolled in the cloud/group based on the configuration or information gathered or uploaded on the internet."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There are no licensing costs for this solution.""The costs were primarily in line with every other vendor at the time.""The price of the solution is reasonable. However, I have not done extensive comparative research on the price. If you want to upgrade the size of the disc you will need to purchase a license that accounts for the size.""The cost price of this product is better than its competitors."

"The price of the solution could be reduced for the license and for support.""It is lower in price as compared to other vendors, such as Dell. As compared to Huawei, all storage solutions are expensive, including this one.""There was a one-time cost when we procured this product and there are no monthly or yearly licensing fees.""Its price is a bit high for adding another tree, but when we purchased it, it was okay with us. We had compared it with EMC and other solutions, and it was okay at that point in time. Our storage has a lifespan of seven to eight years. When you purchase it, you need to keep a headroom of around 40% to 50%. After three to four years, you generally plan for an upgrade. The price is not so bad today for two years or so, and within a year, I might find that I have to upgrade or increase the storage. This usually happens when there is a radical change or a new application has come that is consuming a lot of data, but generally, there is a plan for the amount of data that we generate and the storage upgrade.""It is a bit more expensive. IBM is cheaper than HPE in Turkey.""This solution is expensive. We pay every year for support. It's a lump sum because we pay for data center support services, and everything is included in one.""We purchased the solution as CapEx and we only pay support now. I find the pricing fantastic.""If HPE reduced the price of 3PAR StoreServ they would be more attractive to mid-range companies."
