All in a flash: a year of 3PAR Thursday blogs tells the evolving flash story

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



A year can seem like a long time—or it can fly by in a flash. But any time you’ve done any thing every week for 12 months straight, it’s a good idea to look back and think, “Was that worth it?” Our first 3PAR Thursday post was April 17, 2014, and now one year and 52 posts later, I have to say that YES, it was so worth it. Why? Because we have so much to tell you about what’s happening both in the primary storage market and with 3PAR StoreServ.


With 3PAR Thursday, we’ve been able to provide one convenient blog spot for sharing it all. Over the past 12 months, through our blogs, videos and customer stories, we’ve featured the many aspects of the flash evolution. Here are some of the highlights revisited

News from the street: HP 3PAR All Flash Array

Crystal Harrison interview2.pngIt's 3PAR Thursday and the posts are usually from the team. But I'm happy to report that they are off working on some pretty cool things coming on 3PAR and asked me to step in.  And I'm delighted to oblige because I recently had the chance to talk to Crystal Harrison. Recently we were in Phoenix together for a gathering of HP Storage folks and we grabbed a few minutes to chat.


Crystal spends 80% of her time traveling to meet with customers and discuss HP 3PAR All-Flash. While the video is with a couple of HP Storage people (can I dub Crystal @HPStorageGal?), I think it's a fantastic discussion as she has extensive customer knowledge.


You can view the video either on the full blog post or on YouTube.

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?
