Customers Share Their Secrets - Latisys and HP 3PAR All-Flash Storage

I'm just back from spending the week in Phoenix, Arizona.  For the last 5 years, HP Storage has pulled together our marketing team from around the world to celebrate our successes, plan for the coming 12 months, and to hear from customers and partners.

 

The customer that joined us this year was Christian Teeft. Christian is the CTO of Latisys. Latisys is a US-based hybrid cloud services provider who has standardized on HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage, including the 3PAR all-flash array. I was able to get some time with Christian the night before he talked to the rest of our 200 or so marketing folks. 

 

In the video, Christian talks about their all-flash storage requirements and why they selected 3PAR after evaluating all-flash from several of the start-up AFA vendors (including from those start-up products that have been acquired by large storage vendors).

HP 3PAR Wins All-Flash Array Product of the Year from TechTarget

POY gold small.jpgToday I learned that TechTarget named the HP 3PAR StoreServ All-Flash Array (AFA) was named the product of the year in the category of all-flash.

 

This is such a satisfying recognition for HP 3PAR AFA because in the early days of HP announcing our AFA product, several AFA start-ups claimed that because our AFA wasn't built from scratch, it didn't qualify as all-flash storage. This TechTarget recognition and many of the recent wins I've seen against the AFA startups are proof that the HP 3PAR AFA should be considered by any customer who is looking at all-flash storage.

 

What is it that is different about HP 3PAR that qualifies it to be considered as an all-flash array?  Here are a few key things to consider.

Making life easier for VMware admins: fast, simple, reliable data protection for your VMs

By Anirudh S. Srinivasan, Worldwide Product Manager, HP Storage

 

You are a VMware admin. You are tasked with the responsibility of managing, administrating as well as protecting the virtual infrastructure of your organization. Let’s focus on the last part here – data protection of your virtual machines (VMs). Traditionally, data protection of application data used to be the responsibility of dedicated backup admins, but increasingly, VMware admins are tasked with or sometimes prefer to own the responsibility of protecting VMs as well. 

 

Back in December at HP Discover in Barcelona, we introduced the concept of Converged Data Protection with the announcement of the HP StoreOnce Recovery Manager Central (RMC) software with the RMC for VMware functionality. RMC allows application admins a fast, simple, efficient and reliable way to protect their application data, giving them more control over data protection and recovery than ever before. Here’s how Recovery Manager Central makes your life as a VMware admin easier.

Find out how you can implement VVOLs in your vSphere 6 environment 

 

In my previous blog on VMware Virtual Volumes  (VVOLs), I covered some of the benefits that VVOLs on 3PAR StoreServ provide and touched on the new VASA 2.0 specification. 

 

Now that VVOLs is officially going to GA in the upcoming vSphere 6 release, I want to dive a bit deeper into the technical implementation of VVOLs on 3PAR StoreServ. I’ll start with an overview of key VVOLs components, then take you through three easy steps to get VVOLs up and running.
