Today's announcement podcast part 1: P2000 G3 MSA

 By Calvin Zito, aka @HPStorageGuy


Today we announced a couple of updates to our StorageWorks array family.  Here's a quick summary:

    • The HP StorageWorks P4000 G2 SAN Solution - as you'll hear in tomorrow's podcast, there are a ton of enhancements here.  A couple of the very timely ones are support for parity protected Network RAID, Unified (block and file-based) NAS Gateway, the new Best Practices Analyzer, and lower cost mid-line SAS drive support.  To get those details, check out tomorrow's podcast.


    • The HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA - this product was formerly called the MSA2000.  You may have noticed some slight tweaking of our product names - this is an effort to have a simpler, more consistent product naming across our portfolio.  But that's not the big news here.  In today's podcast, you'll hear about the new iSCSI and 8Gb Fibre Channel combo controller, local replication (up to 64 snapshots) that is included with the P2000, and new remote replication functionality.

So with that high level overview, today's podcast will focus on the P2000.  I'm talking to Charles Vallhonrat.  Charles has been on the MSA team for as long as I can remember and is managing the marketing team.  Today, we talk about the what's new with the MSA, including it's new name, the P2000.
