3PAR Online Import has your data migration covered with support for Hitachi Data Systems storage

5.jpeg5 easy steps to simplify data migration from HDS storage arrays to 3PAR StoreServ storage

Just In case you missed the news at HP Discover earlier this month, we announced support for legacy Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) storage arrays with HP 3PAR Online Import. And there’s more good news: 3PAR Online Import Software comes free for use during the first 180-days with every new HP 3PAR StoreServ storage system. This 3PAR Thursday, I’ll share with you all the details you need to know in learning how to minimize disruption as you take on this data migration yourself. You can migrate in just five easy steps—and your hosts and applications stay online during the data migration process.

Think data migration is a chore? Just the opposite with 3PAR Storage Federation and Peer Motion.

FederatedStorage.jpgDelivering non-disruptive data mobility – DIY and easy too

This 3PAR Thursday, I would like to focus specifically on data migration and how we make it easy with Peer Motion. HP 3PAR Peer Motion is the first appliance-less, non-disruptive, do-it-yourself (DIY) data migration tool for enterprise storage.


With Peer Motion, we don’t require consulting services (but they are available if you choose) to migrate data. Our DIY approach makes data migration simple and inexpensive. Customers are using Peer Motion to migrate their data without complex planning exercises or any outage windows. You can move data from one 3PAR StoreServ system to another while hosts and applications continue to operate completely as normal and without any disruption.


XP7 Always On Disaster Recovery with Online Data Migration

Earlier today, I introduced you to the XP7. In this blog post I want to share with you another ChalkTalk that explains some very cool multi-array virtualization functionality that we call XP7 Always On Disaster Recovery with Online Data Migration. 


I'll let the ChalkTalk do the explaining but there's a short back story here.  I was talking to Karen our worldwide product manager for the XP7 on Monday.  Actually, it was late Monday afternoon.  She talked me through how we can keep a Disaster Recovery Solution working before, during, and after an online data migration. 


She gave me details on how it works and I decided it would make a cool ChalkTalk.  So I set off to do that ChalkTalk yesterday and I think it does a really good job of explaining what this is and how it works.
