HP Storage has more ways to say YES!

Gorilla Suit 72 Hours of Yes.pngWe had a ton of fun granting requests at our 72 Hours of Yes campaign at EMC World in Las Vegas. Outfitting someone in a pink gorilla suit isn't my strength or what we focus on in HP Storage, so I wanted to bring 72 Hours of Yes home to storage.

 

When it comes to storage, HP says “Yes” every day. Consider the case of a video surveillance customer, whose staff make digital recordings.  They are storing lots of images and videos and that means data piles up fast. HP 3PAR StoreServ helps the company get a handle on all that data by making storage more efficient, easier to manage, and scalable. 

 

Say “Yes” to lower CAPEX and OPEX
Because 3PAR StoreServ enables the video surveillance company to use its storage more efficiently, they invest in fewer storage drives, lowering CAPEX. And the ease of operation means fewer resources are needed to deploy and manage their storage, reducing OPEX. Taken together, these advantages can dramatically lower the total cost of ownership.

 

How does 3PAR StoreServ do it? Let me count the ways:
•   More efficient, take one - our resilient multi-node controller design, flash-optimization, and hardware-enabled thin technologies help our video surveillance customer get the most from their storage capacity. We guarantee that when you migrate to HP 3PAR StoreServ you’ll reduce your capacity requirements by 50 percent—or we’ll make up the difference with free disk capacity, software, and support.
•   More efficient, take two - by eliminating bottlenecks and improving I/O performance, we help users such as our video customer keep up with growing business demands. We guarantee that you can increase your virtual machine density by 2X when you migrate to HP 3PAR StoreServ.
•   Effortless management - customers can lower OPEX thanks to HP 3PAR StoreServ's autonomic management, which reduces overhead and lets users accelerate deployment by as much as ten times, enabling easy management from terabytes to petabytes. System-wide striping technology takes advantage of the whole array, which translates into fewer management decision points.
•   Scalable - we offer Tier 1 storage from the midrange to the enterprise. As business accelerates and data needs rise, customers know that HP 3PAR StoreServ's single resilient architecture can easily scale, from mid-range, to all-flash to tier-1. That's Polymorphic Simplicity! And storage federation means that you can easily move your data without having to learn how to operate new systems.

 

Another way to say "Yes"
HP 3PAR Online Import provides support for migrating data from EMC VNX and EMC Clariion CX4 arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ, which enables customers to easily and quickly modernize legacy storage infrastructure. We include support for HP EVA Storage, EMC VNX and Clariion CX4 storage systems.
