c02734161.jpgThe good news is that HP is continuing to invest in EVA P6000 Storage. We’re announcing a series of enhancements designed to help you optimize traditional and virtual workloads with new technology innovations. In a nutshell, these enhancements include:

  • New drive options including support for 200GB and 400GB Small Form Factor (SFF) Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Solid State Disk (SSD)
  • New 3TB SAS drive option for increased scalability
  • Integration with VMware vSphere Storage APs (VAAI)
  • Performance Advisor Software for intuitive, easy-to-use performance monitoring and troubleshooting interface



More P6000 EVA Performance Advisor demo videos

Late last week - actually was most of the world's weekend - I had a blog post talking about some new P6000 EVA Performance Advisor demo videos. Today, I have the final two videos in the series that I wanted to share with you.  Here are the videos:



Demo videos of P6000 EVA Performance Advisor

A few weeks back I had a blog post talking about the P6000 EVA simulator and that it included the new P6000 Performance Advisor (PA) software.  I sure hope you checked it out but if you didn't, over the next couple of days I have a few videos that demonstrate PA.   



100,000 P6000 EVA customer

Last fall, I had the honor of going to visit Cal State University Monterey Bay. Well, who wouldn't jump at a chance at going to Monterey Bay AND visiting a customer.  That visit was one of the highlights of 2011. But really the star of the day was visiting Steven and Paul and hearing about what a work horse the EVA5000 had been and how easy it was to get the P6000 EVA up and running. 


I had previously written a blog about this visit but kept it anonymous because I didn't have everything I needed in place to name CSUMB.  Well, lucky for me because today we also did a press release highlighting CSUMB as the 100,000th EVA customer.

P6500 EVA: That was easy!

Last week I was fortunate to visit an HP EVA customer who had just recently installed a new P6500.  This blog post recounts some of the discussions I had with them.
