HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450: marching on with all-flash success

By Priyadarshi (Pd), Sr. Product Manager, HP 3PAR Storage

 

PDbyline.jpegLast June we launched HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450, our all-flash array. The message was Performance without Compromises and rightfully so. At that time, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 was the only all-flash that could deliver the performance (550K IOPS at or below 0.7 millisecond response time) AND all the rich data services like snapshots, replication, 3-data-center disaster recovery, vMSC certification, encryption and QoS. I was hoping that in the next six months, many of our competitors will catch up on the data services. I was wrong! Here’s why HP 3PAR StoreServ is still the flash leader.

 

Flash-optimized storage design requirements: system resiliency & data mobility

Let’s get right to it then, with a look at two more of the key day-1 design requirements for flash-optimized storage: system resiliency and data mobility.

Flash-optimized storage design requirements: performance acceleration & efficiency optimization

Pd - Copy.jpgHaving talked about the basics of flash-optimized storageand the differences between flash/SSD and HDD, I’m ready to dig deeper into design requirements. Here I’ll focus on two requirements—performance acceleration and efficiency optimization. In the blog post to follow, I’ll concentrate on system resiliency and data mobility. To get going, this ChalkTalk from HPStorageGuy hits the high points on design requirements. Check it out. Then I pick it up from there with more insight and details.

 

Flash-optimized storage design requirements: SSD vs. HDD

By Priyadarshi (Pd), Sr. Product Manager, HP 3PAR Storage

 

Pd - Copy.pngToday, I’m continuing the discussion I started on the basics of flash-optimized storage—and digging deeper into design requirements. To design a flash-optimized system, it’s important to first understand how flash-based solid-state drives (SSD) as a media are fundamentally different from spinning media or hard-disk drives (HDD). I’ll summarize the key differences between HDD and flash media, then talk about the “where” and “why” behind flash design requirements.

 

 

We’re talking flash: the basics on flash-optimized storage

Pd - Copy.jpgI have to say I’m excited to be kicking off this blog series focused on flash-optimized storage. To help introduce me to you, Calvin and I first recorded a quick podcast. Give it a listen: I talk a little bit about my background and get the conversation going on four key flash design requirements (which I’ll be talking about in more detail in subsequent posts).Then I follow up with a quick primer on flash—to lay the foundation for further discussion on flash design requirements.
