Understanding the business value of HP 3PAR StoreServ

The World’s Strongest Technologist

HP Enterprise Solutions & Architectures Team


Architecture matters. Each and every single vendor out there cannot wait to tell you why their architecture is “best.” When asked why a given technology is better than a competitor's, you will inevitably get an answer that extolls the virtues of that architecture while hearing terms like "greater resiliency, lower latency, and flexibly scalability." This tends to satisfy the question and there's either unanimous agreement, silent disagreement, or an open dialogue where technical opinions are exchanged. Thus begins the long process where one side does their due diligence on product investigation and the other side tries to answer every technical objection possible. And while all this is going on, one point often gets overlooked: Why does all this matter?

When it comes to sheer scale, HP 3PAR StoreServ All-Flash soars past the competition

By Aravindan Gopalakrishnan, Product Manager, HP 3PAR



Recently, I came to know about a 460TB all-flash HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 deployment in Asia. We think this must be one of the largest all-flash deployments in the world. I am confident that there is no other all-flash array in the market that can achieve this level of scalability in the same footprint and power envelope as the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450. 


The question this 3PAR Thursday is: Why is it that the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 can easily reach scalability levels that remain distant goal posts for most other all-flash arrays in the market today? Here’s my answer!

The land of I/O: I/O size, mixed-workloads and you

By Ivan Iannaccone, HP 3PAR StoreServ Product Management   @IvanIannaccone


Over the past few weeks I have been reading some interesting claims around what I/O sizes are being recorded in customer environments. Since 2003, we have been collecting point-in-time performance data and lifetime histogram data of every system deployed in the field that is connected to 3PAR Central, this is our repository where all customer telemetry data is held. So I decided to look at some of this data myself and share my conclusions in my 3PAR Thursday blog.
