HPE Storage Trade In Advantage Program

For a limited time, when Commercial Business customers (not individual consumers) trade-in a qualifying array and purchase qualifying HPE storage solutions, you are eligible to receive $100/TB for every TB of Flash capacity purchased or Fair Market Value (FMV) of the trade-in array whichever provides the highest value. The maximum amount paid per claim is $10,000. Here are a few examples of how it works:

  • If you are buying 50TB raw flash capacity of eligible storage solutions, and trading in 50TB of an eligible competing or HPE system, we will issue a check for $5,000 (50TB x $100).
  • If you are buying 50TB raw capacity of eligible storage solutions, and trading in 100TB of an eligible competing or HPE system, we will cut you a check for $5,000 (50TB x $100). Remember, the rebate is based on how much raw capacity you are buying.
  • If you are buying 120TB raw capacity of eligible storage solutions, and trading in 120TB of an eligible competing or HPE system you will receive the maximum rebate cap out at $10,000 (100 TB).
  • If the FMV of the trade-in array is higher than the rebate based on $100/TB raw flash capacity you are buying, we will pay the FMV.

We are especially happy to extend this offer to current 3PAR and StoreVirtual Customers with qualifying arrays. Our early adopter customers have earned special attention when they upgrade. This offer makes the advantages of migrating to great, current HPE Alletra, 3PAR, and Nimble Flash storage solutions even more clear.
