What's new (and coming) with HP StoreVirtual

Part of our pre-VMworld announcement was focused on Software-Defined Storage - and Kate Davis did a great job giving you those details.  But I love when I have someone from our product team come to me and say, "Hey, can I do something on the blog?" Jessica Burton is on our StoreVirtual team and volunteered to do a ShortTake giving a bit more on what we announced with StoreVirtual.  I usually post these as a podcast with slides on SlideShare, but today I want to give you the YouTube version - because I haven't uploaded the podcast yet!  The ShortTake speaks for itself so I'll just give it to watch for yourself.

Get the Short Take on HP’s Software-Defined Storage News

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

 

This is a busy time of year for the software-defined storage team with product announcements and prep for VMworld. As you may have seen yesterday from either the press release or Calvin’s blog we had a number of enhancements to talk about for our VSAs and Management tools.

 

Calvin’s been after me for a while to get some ShortTake’s done around our SDS products and so this announcement was the perfect opportunity for me to dive in to that task. I’ve completed 3 to start, that offer a high-level overview of our news coverage.

If you liked your EVA, you’ll love HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage

The HP EVA was built in an era of predictable data growth and database application but as you transform your data centers, you require modern scale-out architectures more suited for today’s multi-tenant, mixed workload environments. Now it’s time to consider making the move to HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000. You’ll find some motivating details in my blog post and the accompanying ShortTake. Go to the full blog post to see more and to listen to the ShortTake.

 

New ShortTakes on StoreOnce and HP 3PAR AFA

P1040991.jpgI am back from what has been the longest vacation I've ever taken - almost 4 weeks.  While I did have three work events I attended in Europe, my ttime in Europe were pretty much all vacation.  I did post a blog from Germany about half way into the trip so check that out. 

 

I took over 1300 pictures.  And no, I wouldn't make you look at all of them (though many are amazing) but Google Plus has this very cool picture diary it created from the pictures I took with my SmartPhone.  I thought this was cool because all I had to do was add a few captions and remove a few pictures I thought weren't the best so if you want to see what I did, click on the link. But now, it's time for me to get to work.

 

Three new ShortTakes to share

If you remember, the week before I left for Europe was HP Discover.  That was also a rather intense week and I wasn't able to share with you a few ShortTakes from our product experts.  I have three to share - two focused on HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All Flash Array and the other on HP StoreOnce.  I'll include them here in "rapid fire" fashion with no other commentary as the ShortTakes speak for themselves.  As with other ShortTakes, I have the audio you can listen to and slides you can click through. So here they are.  (See the full blog post for the ShortTakes)

Securing backup data with HP StoreOnce

If you've noticed, we've been running two weekly series here on ATSB: 3PAR Thursday and BURA Sunday.  This was an ingenious idea on my part to get other people contributing to the blog.  If you haven't seen some of these really good posts from our experts, you should take a look at them. 

 

I've let the StoreOnce team take a break this Sunday (even though most of the team is in the UK and it's a long weekend here in the U.S.).  For our BURA Sunday post today, I have a ShortTake on security for HP StoreOnce.  Since the guys on the StoreOnce team did the ShortTake, I told them I'd be happy to post it for them today.  And besides that, Ken Brockelman who you'll hear in this ShortTake, is also enjoying a long, Memorial Day weekend. 

 

As with other ShortTakes, I have the audio you can listen to and slides you can click through.  To listen to the audio, head over to the full blog post.
