Replacing EMC with HP 3PAR StoreServ

I reached out to HP Partner SoftChoice after hearing that they had won the HP Storage US Growth Partner of the year award at the HP Global Partner Conference.  I did a podcast with Jim Willis from SoftChoice and am I glad I did.  Jim told me about a customer who when faced with a support contract renewal of six-digits from EMC decided to look at what their options were.

 

In stepped Jim, SoftChoice, and HP 3PAR StoreServ.  When you listen to this podcast, you'll hear more proof that HP 3PAR StoreServ is making a huge impact in the storage market!  Go to the full blog post to listen to the podcast or you can go to http://hpstorage.me/ATSB-podcasts and download #172.

 

DCIG Midrange and Flash combined ranking.pngThe podcast with Jim got me thinking - DCIG has done a Buyer's Guide for both All Flash Arrays and Midrange Arrays.   HP 3PAR StoreServ was named "Best-in-Class" in the Midrange report and was number 3 and "Recommended" in the All Flash Buyers' Guide.  I took those two reports and looked for vendors that had a common platform between midrange and AFA.  No surprise to me that HP 3PAR StoreServ comes out on top, by a long shot.

Adaptive Backup and Recovery from HP

spellicy.jpgLast week many of my colleagues around the world came together in Phoenix for what was a really incredible week of celebrating our accomplishments and planning on how we continue the success.  One of the people there was Stephen Spellicy, my fellow vExpert and the director of product management in HP Autonomy for data protection solutions.  There's a lot of collaboration between our teams as we have a strong focus on Backup, Recovery, and Archive (BURA) solutions.

 

I took the opportunity to talk to Stephan about the solutions he manages and to learn about something I've been hearing a lot lately, Adaptive Backup and Recovery.  In the podcast Stephan talks about the three primary products in his portfolio, discusses how HP StoreOnce and Data Protector are working closely together and then gives an overview of Adaptive Backup and Recovery - a topic that I'll talk to him again as we get closer to HP Discover in June. 

Stop waste and boost capacity for mission-critical applications with HP 3PAR StoreServ

By Beth Joseph, Product Marketing Manager, HP 3PAR StoreServ 

 

Blog Image (300x200).jpgIn the digital age we’re living in, your business has to capture more data if you want to be competitive. For example, a few weeks ago I was talking with a customer in the lighting business. The company used to just ship products without having to know exactly where and how they were being deployed. Now as the industry transitions from florescent technology to LED, the company is being asked to develop smart lighting. So workers have to keep track of where that lighting product or fixture gets installed. They have to know where their clients are. They have to capture all that data. When the company switched to HP 3PAR StoreServ, it was able to dramatically improve performance, boost capacity utilization and ensure it could meet future storage needs. Here’s how.

The Value of HP StoreEver for Archive

By Simon Watkins, Worldwide Tape Product Marketing Manager, HP Storage

 

SW.JPGArchiving is a key use case for tape.  But how does archive actually differ from backup?  And how can HP StoreEver tape archive solutions help you reduce costs, save time and reduce risk?

Keep in m ind that archive is NOT backup! It’s important to understand that archive and backup are distinct processes with different objectives—each one imposing different requirements on the storage systems that they utilize.
