The power of Command Line Interface (CLI) on HP 3PAR

By Ivan Iannaccone, 3PAR StoreServ Product Management

GUIs are amazing and beautiful, but let’s face it there is nothing geekier than using the command line and nothing more effective than building scripts to automate a repetitive task.

 

HP 3PAR StoreServ offers an extremely powerful and simple Command Line Interface (CLI) with open administration support provided via SNMP, Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S), Web Service API and OpenStack Cinder. It’s time to get our true geek on this 3PAR Thursday!

 

 

Customers Share Their Secrets: San Diego Metropolitan Transit System

I have one last customer video I've been holding out on that I did at Nth Symposium.  I want to share one today.  This is a great story - the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System has multiple video cameras on 600 buses, 120 trolleys and many stations with multiple cameras all collecting video.  When their storage system, from another storage vendor, had a "catastrophic melt down" and data loss, CTO Stevan White turned to Nth Generation and HP for help. 

 

San Diego MTS implemented HP 3PAR StoreServ and in Stevan's words, "We went from freaked out to very comfortable with our storage".  I really enjoyed talking to Stevan and think you'll like this video.

Last week as part of our HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 announcement, my 3PAR Thursday blog focused on the performance acceleration delivered by HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1. The announcement also talked about the HP 3PAR Flash Advisor toolset that helps HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage customers asses current capacity and performance profiles via built-in the 3PAR OS toolset in order to optimize current and future flash investments. This week, I’m talking about this in a bit more detail and explaining why these capabilities are so important to enable a smooth transition of application and workloads to use flash-based media.

To say that cMLC SSDs have been widely adopted by our 3PAR StoreServ customers would be an understatement. Our customers just love our ability to bring flash at a price point you can afford—with the certainty of a five-year warranty that covers wear-outs, plus unique Adaptive Sparing technology that enhances endurance. But are all cMLCs the same? To understand this, let’s take a step back and understand cMLCs a little better.

Earlier this year, HP certified the industry’s first all-flash array for SAP HANA tailored datacenter integration (TDI) with the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450. Following on this leadership, we have now certified the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 All-flash Starter Kit as a TDI-certified configuration with as few as eight SSDs for a three HANA server node configuration. ALL HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays—from the smallest 7200 array to the largest 10800—are now certified for SAP HANA TDI.
