Understanding the business value of HP 3PAR StoreServ

The World’s Strongest Technologist

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?

Combining snapshots and backups for best practice data protection

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

 

When it comes to best practice data protection for your business-critical applications, no single snapshot or backup technology can provide the complete solution. Snapshots and backups have different yet complementary roles to play for availability, backup and disaster recovery.When you’re looking for a comprehensive, tiered and converged data protection architecture that balances availability and protection, it should not be a question of either-or but more a case of where and how to best use snapshots and backup.  

 

So what is the value of combining snapshots and backups for availability and backup in your organization?

One full year after the 3PAR StoreServ 7450c all-flash certification for SAP HANA Tailored Data Center Integration (TDI), EMC has announced its first XtremIO certified configurations. While this XtremIO result has a nice headline around 20 HANA node scaling. . . that's where EMC’s right to gloat begins and ends. HP 7450c all-flash solutions for SAP HANA beat XtremIO on capacity, drive counts, footprint, power, cooling, weight and price. And that’s only part of the story.
