It's news too good to wait for our 3PAR Thursday blog!

Earlier this week, industry analyst firm DCIG released its 2015-2016 Enterprise Midrange Array Buyer's Guide.  

 

I'm very proud to say that for the second year in a row, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 series earned the title of "Best-in-Class." You can access the complete DCIG Buyer’s Guide but in today’s blog, I’m higlighting some key points plus talking in more detail about the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7440c Converged Flash Array.

Where all-flash performance meets versatility: HP 3PAR StoreServ 7440c Storage

By Aravindan Gopalakrishnan, Product Manager, HP 3PAR

 

HP Storage and HP 3PAR StoreServ continue to be in the limelight with announcements of new products or innovative new technologies at every single HP Discover event these past few years. HP Discover 2014 Barcelona was no exception – with the announcements of HP 3PAR StoreServ 7440c Converged Flash Array, HP 3PAR File Persona, Online Import support for EMC VMAX, StoreServ Management Console and Recovery Manager Central. This 3PAR Thursday, I want to provide you with more details about a topic that is very close to my heart: the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7440c Converged Flash Storage system.

HP Converged Storage - a vision to simplify storage

I was trying to remember when we first started talking about Converged Storage. I searched our blogs and it looks like it was May 2011. When I started doing ChalkTalks (here's a link to all the ChalkTalks and ShortTakes), one of the first ones I did was Converged Storage.  

 

The roots of HP Converged Storage

While we starting talking about our vision of Converged Storage over three years ago, its roots are in Converged Infrastructure - a topic that I started to discuss here in 2009. That vision is really starting to come together.  At HP, its really coming together with solutions like HP OneView, HP ConvergedSystems, and from a storage perspective HP 3PAR StoreServ. Today I want to focus in a bit on our Converged Storage vision and how it is epitomized in HP 3PAR StoreServ.

 

I want to suggest watching David Scott's storage keynote from HP Discover.  Since it is a keynote video, it is a little less than an hour long. I highly recommend watching this but if you've already heard about our news from HP Discover, that is what David covers in the last half of his keynote.  I have more details in the full blog post so check it out.

 

Welcome to converged data protection: HP StoreOnce Recovery Manager Central

By Simon Watkins, WW Product Marketing Manager, Backup, Recovery & Archive (BURA), HP Storage

 

17x faster backup with application-managed flat backup for HP 3PAR StoreServ

At HP Discover this week, we announced a new data protection offering: HP StoreOnce Recovery Manager Central (RMC) software. RMC enables application-managed snapshots on 3PAR StoreServ systems together with automatic movement of changed data to a HP StoreOnce Backup target, delivering greater protection versus primary storage snapshots alone. With initial support for VMware vSphere®, StoreOnce RMC is both simple and low cost, allowing direct backup from primary storage to secondary storage for VM-level backups. Flat backup topology is enabled by StoreOnce RMC’s Express Protect feature and offers 17x faster data protection than traditional backup. Let’s find out more.

5 reasons to not settle for pseudo-unified storage

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

 

 

Meet the future of primary storage – truly converged block, file and object access

Unfortunately, the word “unified” has been misused or abused by so many storage vendors that it’s true meaning is being forgotten. While unified storage systems on the market today support a mixture of block and file capabilities, they have all made significant compromises. 

 

Established so-called unified storage systems have superficially bolted together block and file in some fashion. I personally believe the industry needs to do much better. HP’s vision is to provide the most efficient primary storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file and object access with HP 3PAR StoreServ and the new HP 3PAR File Persona.
