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

Understanding the business value of HP 3PAR StoreServ

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?

By Hasmig Samurkashian, SAP Solutions Manager, HP Storage Marketing

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.
