Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"This is a stable solution.""The technical support is very good.""The product stands on its own in heavy enterprise environments.""This is a very robust product and it offers everything that we are looking for.""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.""Remote-copy provides high availability and disaster recovery for the connected clients.""If there is a problem then the HPE facility will detect it and immediately contact me.""It is easy to set up, easy to use, and user-friendly. It is easier to work with HPE 3PAR than with Hitachi. Its technical support is also good."

"The solution is very easy to use, it is not really complex for any user, such as non-technical individuals.""The most valuable features were the dual controllers and being able to expand it.""The most valuable features are the storage levels and snapshot features.""The simple configuration feature is great. It is very simple, allowing you to set up MSA very easily.""The product is very easy to deploy."

Cons
"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.""The configuration and flexibility should improve.""As long as they can keep the solution stable, it will be good. Stability is very important to us.""Cloud integration could be better. They can also add an NVMe to port to that. I would like to see NVMe in the next release. That's the future or the near future for storage. That will give us a real high throughput and some performance.""The interface could be improved to match the system.""HP has several integration elements that work with other vendor storage products. I'd like to see a greater expansion on that so that a customer can do a more seamless migration from other vendor products.""From an overall perspective, all the latest technologies can improve support and performance. This is very important for us.""Scalability and management could be improved."

More HPE 3PAR StoreServ Cons »

"The support contract is expensive, although they are very responsive.""Synchronized replication is very important for MSA; however, HPE StorageWorks MSA doesn't provide synchronized replication.""It would be ideal if there was a better management interface.""The solution could improve by adding configuration tools.""This product is getting a little bit older, so new features like deduplication are not included."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This is not an expensive product but every time you add capacity to it, you need to pay for re-balancing.""If HPE reduced the price of 3PAR StoreServ they would be more attractive to mid-range companies.""The cost is reasonable given that the licensing is all included once you purchase it.""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.""We purchased the solution as CapEx and we only pay support now. I find the pricing fantastic.""It is quite difficult to decide on the cost. At one point, I was the project lead to cover with some people, but the price was important and we had its compression calculated. At that moment, it was fair because that was one of the things moving their product due to the cost of HPE 3PAR StoreServ as they were competing with Hitachi and IBM A9000, which I'm not sure if is still available.""We don't pay for any licensing fees.""It is a bit more expensive. IBM is cheaper than HPE in Turkey."

More HPE 3PAR StoreServ Pricing and Cost Advice »

"This solution involves a one-time CapEx payment, followed by warranty extensions.""When we bought this solution it was very reasonably priced and they were willing to deal.""This solution is quite expensive; they should lower the cost.""The price of the solution is a little high and they should provide more competitive pricing. If you want to increases the storage size there are additional fees."
