Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"HPE Primera is stable.""HPE Primera has good integration. All the users are using HP servers and some systems, such as Synergy, which integrate well into the solution.""HPE Primera is an all-flash storage product that's very stable and has a higher storage capacity. It can also give better ROI compared to NetApp.""The most valuable feature is the ability to provide the IOPS ratio which is required by a lot of our customers.""The performance is very good.""The initial setup is very straightforward. It's not overly complex.""The performance of the solution is good.""We sold Primera to a public university, and they're happy with it. They have been using it for about four months with no significant problems."

Cons
"The reporting console can be improved with out of the box reports.""There are certain features that require engineering-level access, which should be accessible to storage admins as well.""We cannot use this storage for critical applications and data.""Price is always important in Turkey, so HPE could lower the price to keep it competitive. It's not as competitive as other solutions in this market.""The initial setup is not straightforward.""The file server embedded in Pure, the GUI, and the tracking and reporting features are better with Pure Storage.""One of the drawbacks of the model we purchased is that it is not running NVMe drives. Even though they say that it is NVMe-ready, it is still on the SSD drives. The model that we purchased has only eight hard drives, and only the ones on the top could work on NVMe. The rest of them are still on the SSD. Its competitors, such as EMC and Pure Storage, are moving or have already moved to NVMe. HPE should improve this solution for NVMe. HPE should also improve IOs in this solution. IOs in HPE are weaker than Hitachi and Pure Storage.""Like most storage, we want to see flash become more and more stable. Like any flash that uses MLC or TLC techniques, over time, the more writes you have, the less usable the storage becomes. They try to plan for this and have a lot of extra space in the arrays, but over time, their performance does degrade. This is true for any flash storage."

More HPE Primera Cons →

"I would like to see the next generation all-flash, which could be combined.""I would like to see more iterations and direct integration with other solutions.""Technical support could be more helpful.""In the future release, Huawei OceanStor should improve on what they already have. It is a good solution.""CFS integration is one area where OceanStor has some room for improvement. The CFS on OceanStor is dedicated, so it's not integrated with the existing active directory domain.""We did experience a little latency with this solution.""The solution could improve by having better integration.""The security could be a bit more robust."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is basically in the mid-range of the price. It is not cheaper than Hitachi, but it is cheaper than Pure Storage. There are no additional costs. Everything was taken care of in the price."
  • "Licensing fees are billed on a yearly basis and the cost of GreenLake service is included."
  • "I believe HPE Primera and Pure Storage are similar in price."
  • "There is only a one-time license purchase needed and no additional costs. If HP could reduce the training cost, then that would be advantageous to the seller."
  • "The price of HPE Primera could improve, it is expensive."
  • "HPE Primera service is cost-effective."
  • "Because it has high availability, the cost is above average. The cost depends upon the sizing, and every customer has a different size. It is slightly above average in terms of cost compared to its competitors, but the value add was that they could know what their maintenance cost was going to be going forward. They knew what their renewal or expansion costs would be."
  • "The license for HPE Primera is all-inclusive."
  • More HPE Primera Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "Huawei OceanStor is priced very well but is a bit complicated."
  • "The price of the solution could be less expensive. However, there are not any licensing costs."
  • "We pay a monthly licensing fee for this solution. The price could be less expensive."
  • "The pricing depends on the features the customer wants, such as storage, RAM, and processors, but in general, Huawei is much cheaper compared to Dell and Cisco."
