If you liked your EVA, you’ll love HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage

OK, not to brag, but HP EVA Storage is one of the most successful products in the history of the enterprise storage industry. EVA has been a customer mainstay for more than a decade with over a hundred-thousand shipments. It brought ease of use and simplicity to the forefront of the industry.
The HP EVA was built in an era of predictable data growth and database application but as you transform your data centers, you require modern scale-out architectures more suited for today’s multi-tenant, mixed workload environments.


Enter HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000  
HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 brings enterprise class capabilities to the midrange while incorporating ease of use features that many HP EVA customers expect from their storage. Over the past year, the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage has really shaken things up in the midrange SAN storage. The impressive market share gains and recent spate of industry awards are testimony to that.
In a recent blog post, the one-and-only HPStorageGuy described how 3PAR StoreServ is selling like hotcakes.

A unique quad-controller design enables 3PAR to maintain service levels and data integrity not available in legacy dual controller designs like the EVA and EMC VNX.  We also minimize costs with a platform built from the ground up with thin provisioning in mind as opposed chubby, bolt on substitutes. You get effortless management through self-configuring, self-provisioning and self-optimizing features with EVA DNA built right in.
Upgrading to HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage is effortless
Back in 2011, HP introduced HP 3PAR Peer Motion, the living foundation of our federation technologies. In late 2012, we extended this technology to support online data migration from HP EVA. This has enabled our customers to migrate thousands of hosts to HP 3PAR StoreServ, where they benefit from higher performance, high availability and bulletproof resiliency. The process is effortless. Plus you get to start from what you know by using Command View EVA. In fact, moving from EVA to 3PAR is easier than moving from EVA to EVA.
