What do you like best?
HP EVA This is one of the best storage device which I never come across in my 15 years of my SAN Technology. This is one of the best storage appliance.
After this HP EVA few of my friends moved to HP 3 PAR support, I could not get a chance but from my colleagues some how I got -ve feedback. One of my customer he procured HP 3 PAR and requested me to help in understanding and explain, even I had a -ve opinion I studied a lot and understand the architecture and I change my mind to +VE and in the mid range marked it was with stand in enterprise world similar to V-MAX. Sorry if I am comparing but with out comparison no one can understand which is good and bad.
I am supporting HP3PAR 7000 and 10K now, and I have an implementation as well now and migration.
What do you dislike?
Market strategies need to be change more, even these devices much user friendly to handle, they are in backlog in Industry.
I met most of the consultants in this world their recommendations WRT to HP is very less, I know that HP 3 PAR is given very good competition to V-MAX but it has to be more.
Recommendations to others considering the product
I will always recommend to my friends about the HP.
