I have some storage news I want to share with you. We have updates to three product families that I want to tell you about. So let's jump in!
HP StoreVirtual Storage
HP StoreVirtual has some really exciting updates. I hope you saw the blog post I did recently talking about the new OS, LeftHand OS v 12.0. There's a new 2-node HP StoreVirtual 4335 hybrid cluster that delivers outstanding storage performance for minimal investment with easy path for evolving to flash without downtime or professional services. And to help make the transition to flash, we've dropped the price of a single StoreVirtual 4335 by 19% and the price for the 2-node 4335 is 11% less than buying two separate 4335s.
And what I find amazing is how much less hardware, rackspace, power and cooling, and cost savings you get for equivalent performance when compared to the StoreVirtual 4530. I have a
new ChalkTalk that covers all of this so check it out.
HP StoreEasy Refresh
Do you know what the number one NAS product in the $5-15K price range is? It's HP StoreEasy! And this family is getting a very nice refresh with most of the portfolio moving to HP ProLiant Gen9 hardware. The result is a 56% increase in capacity and a 21% decrease in $/GB. I have a new ChalkTalk here as well giving an overview of the StoreEasy Storage family, so check that out!

You care about effectively retaining, preserving and protecting your data for numerous reasons. It might be because the volume and value of your organization’s digital assets have grown. It might be because your organization’s workflows have been digitized, and that it enables effective organization operations and governance. Or it might be because you’re compelled to by regulators such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Whatever the reason, I encourage you to ask yourself these three questions:
- Is your storage optimized for affordably storing, securing, and appropriately sharing file data?
- Does your file storage prevent business and user disruption, and protect your data always?
- Is your file storage validated to meet SEC requirements while saving you money and time?
If you answered no or maybe to any of these questions, you are settling for less than what you can get. Find out how HP and iTernity together can help you answer these questions with a big YES.
I'm continuing my series of blog posts about the news from our HP Global Partner Conference happening this week in Las Vegas. I'm having Vegas withdrawals as I haven't been there since June 2013. Not that Vegas gets me excited but it is an easy flight for me and I found some great off strip restaurants that I really enjoy. But enough of Missing Las Vegas - lets dive in!

Today is the first day of the HP Global Partner Conference in Las Vegas and with the start of GPC comes news from HP Storage. Over the next few blog posts, I'll give you details on everything being announced but for this post, I'll give you a high level overview.
