IT’s what’s for dinner: salad and hyper-convergence

By Kate Davis, WW Marketing Manager, HP Software-Defined Storage   @KateAtHP

 

TossedSalad.jpgWell, I’ve been asked to teach a couple of hyper-convergence crash courses this month. So I’ve been thinking about how to approach the subject. My audience is not technical so I needed to come up with a concept that’s relatable.

 

I’ve come up with salad.

 

Join me as I use a new approach to explaining Traditional IT, Converged Infrastructure and Hyper-converged.

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.

 

Integrating HP 3PAR StoreServ and Microsoft Azure Site Recovery for Disaster Recovery

By Parissa Mohamadi, Microsoft Solution Manager, HP Storage Marketing

 

Azure.jpgToday, Microsoft announced the general availability of Azure Site Recovery for Enterprise Grade Storage Array-Based Replication and Disaster Recovery. Azure Site Recovery (ASR) enables you to protect, replicate and failover Virtual Machines (VMs), ensuring that your mission-critical applications are always up and running.

 

Simply put, ASR acts as the orchestrator of the replication and the failover for the virtual machines that are managed by System Center.

 

So how does storage play into all this? Having Tier-1 storage that offers advanced availability features makes it much easier to implement ASR. Microsoft and HP worked together to enable you to link together your on-premise private cloud data centers on HP 3PAR StoreServ via Azure Site Recovery. Read on to see what HP 3PAR StoreServ and Microsoft ASR can do for you.

 

 

 

Imagine this: Manage HP 3PAR StoreServ in your Windows Server environment

By Parissa Mohamadi, Microsoft Solution Manager, HP Storage Marketing

 

It’s reality with HP StoreFront Manager for Microsoft!

Have you ever dreamed of managing your HP 3PAR StoreServ with a single pane-of-glass view of all that is happening in your Microsoft Windows Server environment?

 

If so, HP StoreFront Manager for Microsoft has it all! It provides a comprehensive integration of HP 3PAR StoreServ with Microsoft System Center so that you can see events/alerts, capacity monitoring and detailed VM information all in one place. I'll dive into the topic on my 3PAR Thursday blog here - or you can check out my ShortTake.
