Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The product lasts a very long time without having to be replaced. It's had a very long life.""The features which are most valuable are the availability of the system and the management.""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.""It works well and we don't have any issues with this solution.""This product is stable, aside from the performance problems we had.""This is a very robust product and it offers everything that we are looking for.""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.""Remote-copy provides high availability and disaster recovery for the connected clients."

"It's an easy product to use that is stable and has good performance.""The solution is easy to use.""I like it. When it is up and running, it does the job.""The solution is stable.""The most important features are SnapVault, Snapshots, and SnapMirror.""I like the unified management feature because sometimes you end up running a single protocol on the entire system.""The most valuable feature is SnapMirror.""The most valuable features are the NAS features and NetApp's excellent support."

Cons
"This product has come to the end of its lifecycle.""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.""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.""We are using a built-in solution in 3PAR. We are using All-Flash Storage, and there are some difficulties with it. HPE has now developed a new tool system to support All-Flash, and that's why we are changing our investment. They must increase its performance. I want unlimited support, which is very important for performance. I am not interested in spinning disks. HPE is developing new storage systems called Primera, but they must be developed more.""HPE could improve by making an old flash system in order to compete with the current market. For the solution to be more competitive in the mid-range market they could increase the performance.""The solution could be improved in regard to space reclamation by adding automation.""While the stability is pretty good, it could always be improved upon.""Its price is a bit high for adding another tree."

More HPE 3PAR StoreServ Cons »

"The solution could do more than just data.""Technical support needs to be improved, as there are no longer partners in our country.""NetApp FAS Series could improve by being more secure.""Interfacing with the cloud environment could be better. I want to be able to move some cloud volume and integrate it seamlessly with my home on-premise storage. Sometimes I have issues with port permissions. NetApp probably needs to improve more on the integration side from on-premise to the cloud.""We're supposed to have used NetApp FAS Series for replication, but then one of the nodes failed, and then it's taken us some time to bring it up.""Its operating system is very cumbersome. However, after you set it up, it runs pretty smoothly. Its file system is not very dynamic. It is very static.""The user interface could be improved to have better graphics and the performance analyzer could be better.""If our customer needs a high-performance storage solution then we don't recommend this product."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's a good price.""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.""The licensing cost for HPE 3PAR StoreServ is expensive.""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.""There was a one-time cost when we procured this product and there are no monthly or yearly licensing fees.""The price of the solution could be reduced for the license and for support.""The SSD is a little bit expensive."

"It's not cheap, but at the same time, it's also inexpensive. It's somewhere in between.""I don't recall the price, but in general, pricing can always be better.""We are on a perpetual license.""We purchased it for four years, and it wasn't expensive. It was reasonable. Every company has a different agreement with NetApp. We got everything we wanted with all the bells and whistles and all the features and functionalities.""It definitely depends on the contract. It depends on where you buy it from, which features are you going to use, and what is your personal benefit of the features that you plan to use for the system.""It is expensive.""I've sold arrays for as little $20,000 USD and as high as $300,000 USD.""NetApp FAS Series could be less expensive."
