With capabilities such as hardware assisted thin technologies – including deduplication, reservation-less thin and snapshots – fine-grained write allocation of 16KB and system-wide sparing HP 3PAR StoreServ systems are designed to be economical and efficient in their use of storage media. Being energy efficient is a natural extension of this design philosophy. The ENERGY STAR certification for the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 and 7400 Storage is a proof point for that.
