The importance of storage QoS with flash

By Ivan Iannaccone, HP 3PAR StoreServ Product Management   @IvanIannaccone




I love to talk to customers about Priority Optimization. It’s a feature of HP 3PAR StoreServ that allows storage QoS to give you the ability to provision performance as you provision capacity, assuring that your important workloads get expected performance.


The Evaluator Group recently completed an evaluation paper that shows how Priority Optimization can be used in a mission-critical all-flash environment. So this 3PAR Thursday, I’m taking this ideal opportunity to talk a bit more about storage QoS and its importance in all-flash deployments.


Genie out of the bottle: best-in-class QoS with HP 3PAR Priority Optimization software

By Megha Shukla, 3PAR Product Marketing Manager, HP Storage


I was at a customer event a couple of days ago where the presenter was talking about the different software features that enhance HP 3PAR StoreServ. A few queries we made about HP 3PAR Priority Optimization software and its functionality. These customers were interested in understanding the difference that Priority Optimization can bring to specific scenarios such as consolidation of dissimilar workloads onto a single storage array. I thought you would be interested in understanding more about this too. Because, if you’re an over-worked IT administrator dealing with complex allocation of your storage resources (and wondering whether your quality of service can be maintained or not), HP 3PAR Priority Optimization can literally be the genie out of the bottle.

All-Flash 3PAR StoreServ 7450 + 3PAR Priority Optimization Software + 3PAR Peer Persistence: a marriage made in heaven for virtualization of mission-critical applications

Yes, here we are in June! For us here at HP, June means HP Discover that is happening next week in Las Vegas. But it’s also a prime time for weddings – which inspires me to talk about the perfect union of the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-flash Array, 3PAR Priority Optimization Software and 3PAR Peer Persistence—and what role this combination plays in the virtualizing of your mission-critical applications.
