    HPE 3PAR StoreServ is a great storage device for both file and block-level storage needs. You can use it in place of SAN devices required by database servers. It provides an amazing compaction ratio and, hence, reduces overall storage footprint and cost. This is, however, slightly costly if your environment doesn't really see high transactions most of the time.

    It is well suited in data transfer and storage of files under secure environment. It has contributed to immediate Return on Investment with low cost performance. I totally recommend it to any company for its high speed performance under secure data channels. It does reliable reporting on data integration and analysis on daily basis pointing out areas that have challenging operations.

    Pros

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise

    • We are using HP 3PAR storeServ 8200 for both our file level and block level storage.
    • I really love the amazing compaction ratio provided by HP 3PAR. Some of our disks have compaction ratio above 25:1, which is super amazing. You can definitely look for around 75% reduction of storage footprints.
    • It has a great user friendly web console "SSMC"(StoreServ Management Console). This is an additional bonus and can be used by even non-storage people like DBA and Network to take a look at storage performance.

    • Very cost-effective. You choose the hardware.
    • Very reliable and performant.
    • Excellent proactive support. They call us when there is an issue.
    • Very flexible. Can mix and match spinning disk and SSD depending on capacity and performance needs.

    Cons

    Hewlett Packard Enterprise

    • The system requires a physical or virtual system to manage upgrades and patches and for call home features. Most other systems have this integrated into the array. Just another piece of infrastructure to manage.
    • There are some system jobs that come pre-scheduled in the initial setup, but there is at least 1 job that should be added to this by default. When you delete storage, you also need to run a job to compact the CPG (a group where the luns all reside) to reclaim the previously used storage as free. This should be done by default at least monthly in the background.
    • There are 2 different GUI front ends that can still be used. The older version (3 PAR management console) is being phased out (has been for 3 years).

    • Not sure what improvements are needed. The UI could possibly be more intuitive.

        We are very satisfied with 3PAR performance and especially the IOPS (Input Output Per Second) is pretty amazing. It is easy to configure and doesn't require much knowledge of storage for Tier 1 support team.

        With their phone home technology, we usually have a replacement part on its way by the time we wake up in the morning, or if the event occurs overnight. We have had great support when we had questions or events that required a call.

        We still use NetApp storage enclosures at each plant for our routine file shares (CIFS) but I would love to swap them out for the HPE 3PARs as we use for our ERP app data. The 3PARS are simply faster and much better at near-instant replication. But even more importantly we can get the reporting that we need from the 3PAR within a few minutes, even custom reports. 3PARs are much easier to manage than NetApps in general and I think that the only place that they compete is in compaction.

        I have not been able to work with same featured product in our organization, however the performance of this platform has been excellent. The support center has been reliable and trustworthy giving us 100% support on daily basis when we deach them. It is affordable to any business enterprise that is ready to implement data storage and transfer programs. The maintenance and scalable cost is reasonable and and the services has been great.

        Return on Investment

        Hewlett Packard Enterprise

        • We grew unexpectedly, which forced us to buy a lot of expensive HP SSD's.
        • We have never had any performance issues with this storage.

        • It enabled us to upgrade our storage and switch from FC to iSCSI at a reasonable cost.
        • iSCSi is so much less expensive to maintain.
        • StarWind is upgradable and you never lose your investment.
