HPE Primera Pros

The high availability was most valuable because they come with what's called 100% data availability. With special terms, they license and guarantee 100% data availability. That was probably one of the key features or components that HPE was offering with that model.

The features that I have found most valuable are the artificial intelligence for the storage inside of the software and firmware because customers do not like functionalities which require manual interruption.

All of the capabilities of the hardware such as replication, snapshot, and the specific features are all included from the start as opposed to being on another license.

In my opinion, HPE is making good progress and moving ahead with InfoSight, which is predictive analytics and artificial intelligence.

There has been a lot of changes in HPE Primera OS, and most of the time any package related to it is simple to upgrade. It does not require any support for the operation. The customer can easily deploy any code directly from the GUI which is very good. Additionally, we have individual storage we can allocate and easily manage.

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 important thing that we had found when we purchased this product around six months back was its 100% availability and uptime.

HPE Primera Cons

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.

There really isn't any aspect of the solution that needs improvement for the customer other than its price.

On the hardware side, you should have the ability to expand capacity to larger numbers.

The interface needs to be more user-friendly in that sense that installation and management are still a bit on the high end.

We used to receive hardware errors a lot of times. The ambient temperatures rise rate was approximately 35 to 55 degrees, but when it was approximately 27 or 28, we used to get errors a lot.

Increasing the IOPS and throughput values would make the product even better. Improving the scalability of HPE Primera is also recommended.

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.
