Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It is reliable, and it seems like a solid product. It has been working well so far.""HPE 3PAR StoreServ has a good interface, it is user-friendly and easy to use.""HPE 3PAR StoreServ is easy to use and has good performance.""We're hosting virtual infrastructure on the 3PAR storage and it's been very good for that.""This product is stable, aside from the performance problems we had.""It works well and we don't have any issues with this solution.""There's a lot of good features. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is similar to Dell EMC. It is a high-speed system with automatic failover/failback, integrated with Microsoft Hyper-V and VMware. These are the main reason for choosing HPE 3PAR StoreServ in Denmark. We have a very good consulting service together with the product.""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."

"We have been able to scale up to ten VM storages and 500 VMs through a single pane of glass.""The data encryption feature adds a valuable security enhancement with no impact on performance."

Cons
"I would like to see an automatic re-balancing system or functionality for adaptive optimization.""From an overall perspective, all the latest technologies can improve support and performance. This is very important for us.""It is suitable for medium-sized businesses and data centers with less number of users and less important data. It is not really an enterprise-level solution. It needs more capacity. It is also not really stable. It should be more stable. It should also support any server model. It is really weak in this area.""Setting up 3PAR is somewhat complicated, and it took about a week.""Here in Algeria, we are facing a lot of trouble finding partners and getting support from HPE. There should be better support here in our country.""We do see room for improvement, especially in regard to expanding the defined storage areas.""The solution could improve by being more secure.""The performance of the solution is not good anymore and the software is different from all the other types and is not compatible. There are more negative things at this moment than positive. This is why we are removing them all from our organization this year."

More HPE 3PAR StoreServ Cons →

"Detailed reporting is missing in the current version. We would like to see this feature added in a new release.""We need more options to integrate with cloud storage options other than the current AWS and IBM that it currently supports."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The SSD is a little bit expensive."
  • "This is not an expensive product but every time you add capacity to it, you need to pay for re-balancing."
  • "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 lower in price as compared to other vendors, such as Dell. As compared to Huawei, all storage solutions are expensive, including this one."
  • "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."
  • "The cost is reasonable given that the licensing is all included once you purchase it."
  • "We purchased the solution as CapEx and we only pay support now. I find the pricing fantastic."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the HPE 3PAR StoreServ solution.

    A SAN Consultant at a tech services company says, “One of the features that I like the most is the data replication element. The reason I like it is due to the fact that it's pretty clean on replicating data over to a second site. The product stands on its own in heavy enterprise environments. It's easy to make changes without affecting the environment. The solution is very easy to use. The product is very robust and offers very good performance.”

    A Storage Manager at a financial services firm mentions, "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."

    A Senior IT Infrastructure & Data Center Operation Engineer at Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT) comments, “The adaptive optimization is the biggest feature in 3PAR. 3PAR is very usable with thin volume because it detects zeros while writing. Every time I tell the hypervisor to make the full provisioning, it makes the volume as simple provisioning in 3PAR, not full provisioning.”
