ESG Lab Report: HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-Flash Array

This morning while reading my Twitter timeline, I came across a video and Lab Validation Report from ESG.  They were commissioned by HP to look at the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450, our all-flash array that was announced at HP Discover in June.  The video here summarizes the testing they ran.  It's about 5 minutes and worth checking out.

 

Why is this important?

Beyond the impact that SSD is having, here's some context on why I think this is important.  There are tectonic shifts happening around cloud, virtualization, and explosive data growth that are driving a new approach to IT (a new style of IT).  Instead of focusing on app-centric approach, IT must be delivered as a service because unpredictable is the new constant - planning service levels when you don't know what's coming, what impact will a new application have on the service level of others, what happens if you run out of performance, etc.
