Virtualizing tier-1 applications with all-flash VMworld session podcast

P1050959.jpgLast week I gave the 3PAR team a break from publishing a 3PAR Thursday blog post and I’m doing the same thing again this week, sort of.  Earlier this week at VMworld Priyadarshi Prasad (Pd) and Eric Siebert presented a session titled The Perfect Stormage: Virtualizing Tier-1 apps with All-Flash Arrays.  I recorded the audio of the session and wanted to share it with you here.  I’m also including a PDF of the session’s slides that you can use.

HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 All-Flash Array: your first All-Flash Array for $35000

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

 

In June at HP Discover, you probably heard us talking about our HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 all-flash array delivering extremely fast performance and rich Tier-1data services for under $2 per GB usable capacity. Now just two months later at VMworld, we’re announcing our next all-flash array model: the 3PAR StoreServ 7200 Starter Kit at just $35000 (US street price). Our price, which is less than 50% of our major competitors provides a great opportunity for anyone looking at primary storage to consider an all-flash array. We also announced that in collaboration with VMware, 3PAR StoreServ is ready for use with the new VVols storage architecture currently in beta. Read on for more details. (And, whether or not you are heading to San Francisco, stay connected here with all our VMworld 2014 blog posts.)

More validation for HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-Flash Array

DCIG.pngThe 3PAR team that normally brings you our 3PAR Thursday blog post is busy getting ready for VMworld (and some surprises we have coming) so I volunteered to take this weeks 3PAR Thursday post. 

 

Earlier this week, I saw a story in the latest Storage Magazine (from TechTarget) talking about all-flash arrays. Arun Taneja, Founder of the Taneja Group, in his article titled Not all flash arrays are alike says (and I paraphrase here) that existing HDD arrays that are modified to support all-flash just don't perform. He proposes that to get the most out of all-flash requires new thinking (e.g. designed for all-flash from scratch).

 

But wait....

He then says but - and this is a BIG but - the one exception that he has seen to this is the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450. Taneja says it performs like an all-flash array because of the custom ASIC inside HP 3PAR.

I'm beaming ear to ear - this is exactly what we have been saying. But it's not just performance. There are several things worth mentioning that in my mind make our 3PAR AFA a great choice:
