StoreVirtual VSA Peer Motion and ATSB Motion

Moving.pngOk - I couldn't resist the synergy in the title of the post. If you missed me saying it, ATSB and all of our Enterprise blogs are going to migrate to the the Enterprise Business Community. This will be my last blog post here before we migrate to the new home for ATSB.


The team doing the migration is moving 2 years worth of posts plus ten "hand-selected" posts that are older than two years. While looking through the older posts to decide which other 10 I'd move, I came across one I had done titled "HP LeftHand P4000 Peer Motion demo".  No point giving you the link because that post is going to be wiped into the data bit bucket and will be lost forever. I sent the link to my StoreVirtual solution architects and asked them if the demo in the video was still current even though it had the old branding in it. Several came back and said that it was still a good demo and they liked it. However, one of the SAs replied with a link to an updated demo I had done about 6 months ago.

Some things are better blended together

By Kate Davis, WW Marketing Manager, HP Software-Defined Storage   @KateAtHP


Hyper-convergence brings blend and balance—not rip and replace—to your data center


Blended_ATSB_sized_16Sept.jpgSome things are just better when blended together like: fruit and yogurt, Velveeta and RoTel, or if it’s 5 o’clock…Tequila, Triple Sec and limes.


Blending is good for IT as well. Sometimes you have to settle for new components that stand apart from the rest of your infrastructure in order to get the project moving. But more and more, adopting new technologies today has left us with a choice to make – Build a silo or blend into the current infrastructure. See how you can blend the latest technologies into your current environment and still keep the business rolling speedily along.

Finding the right model is easy with HP StoreEasy

By Stephen Bacon, Senior Manager, File and Object Storage Product Management and Marketing


When it comes to file storage, it’s about capacity AND performance

If your file storage isn't aligned with your capacity and your performance requirements, it can lead to additional unanticipated and costly purchases down the road as your organization and your users’ file data grow. Our HP StoreEasy products are built to meet a wide range of file storage needs and workloads—for small to midsized organizations, and the remote offices and workgroups of large organizations. Every StoreEasy model is carefully optimized to deliver real-world performance that is balanced with its capacity.


One of the common uses for HP StoreEasy is to consolidate your users’ documents, images, audio and videos. Handily, one of the tools we use to validate StoreEasy performance is Microsoft’s File Server Capacity Tool, which characterizes the absolute performance of home folder workloads, like those of users in a wide range of office environments.
