HPStorageGuy checking in from Germany


I decided to do a quick check-in from Europe.  I'm writing this post from Heidelberg, Germany not far from Mannheim and tomorrow's HP World Tour stop.  I only speak or understand a little German so I don't expect to follow along with the presentations but I do hope to do a few videos or podcasts with customers and partners attending. 


Last week, I was in Denmark where I made a couple of stops.  First, I stopped in the historic city of Helsingør.  My family and I had a great day visiting the city which is home to Kronborg Castle - where William Shakespeare's play Hamlet took place.  My family and I toured the castle took the "Hamlet Tour" where a guide and I it so happened that the Kommune Helsingør is an HP 3PAR customer and I did a video with them.  It was my son's 15th birthday and as a "birthday present", I brought him as my camera man - so I'm looking forward to coming home to edit the video he took for me.

Welcome to Flash 2.0: HP 3PAR Thin Deduplication with Express Indexing

By Ivan Iannaccone, 3PAR StoreServ Product Management


This week on 3PAR Thursday:

With the introduction of HP 3PAR Thin Deduplication and Thin Clones software, HP 3PAR StoreServ continues to set the gold standard for hardware-accelerated thin technologies that drive up capacity efficiency and extend flash media lifespan. Together with cMLC SSD and Thin Deduplication, HP 3PAR StoreServ truly enables a flash-based solution at HDD-based costs.  Welcome to Flash 2.0.


HP 3PAR StoreServ All Flash gets dedupe

I'm going to have to pace myself this week!  HP Discover hasn't formerly started and I'm beyond excited.  We held our press conference yesterday where David Scott shared our storage news with the press and bloggers in attendance.  My previous blog post and ChalkTalk gave you the high level snapshot of the news and in this post, I want to give you a bit more detail on the HP 3PAR news. 


I think the starting point is the ChalkTalk on our HP 3PAR news: deduplication for our all-flash 7450. 

The cloud revolution marches on – with HP 3PAR StoreServ and OpenStack

By Ivan Iannaccone, 3PAR StoreServ Product Management


OpenStack1.jpgIt’s been an interesting month what with the HP announcement of Helion and the OpenStack Summit in Atlanta. I was thinking that it’s good to remind folks how HP 3PAR is playing an important role in the cloud revolution to offer you the perfect choice for your enterprise hybrid cloud.  Why HP 3PAR StoreServ and OpenStack?


HP 3PAR is committed to bringing enterprise-class storage to OpenStack Ecosystems. OpenStack is primarily deployed as an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solution that in order to be truly successful requires an infrastructure with a storage architecture that enables IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS). HP 3PAR Storage is the only storage platform in the industry that can meet the demands of the modern data center because it’s built for virtualization, cloud and ITaaS.

HP 3PAR Online Import for EMC Storage: so you can stop living in the land of NO!

By Ivan Iannaccone, 3PAR StoreServ Product Management



Today we announced HP 3PAR Online Import support for migrating data from EMC VNX and EMC CLARiiON CX4 arrays to HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage. If you are stuck in the land of NO, the transition to HP 3PAR StoreServ just got so much easier. You know the land of NO!  It’s the legacy data center with no common array operating system across midrange, high-end and all-flash. No 8X faster provisioning—and no guarantees like HP 3PAR StoreServ. Say YES! to learning more, as I go into more detail in this 3PAR Thursday blog post.
