Stop waste and boost capacity for mission-critical applications with HP 3PAR StoreServ

Blog Image (300x200).jpgIn the digital age we’re living in, your business has to capture more data if you want to be competitive. For example, a few weeks ago I was talking with a customer in the lighting business. The company used to just ship products without having to know exactly where and how they were being deployed. Now as the industry transitions from florescent technology to LED, the company is being asked to develop smart lighting. So workers have to keep track of where that lighting product or fixture gets installed. They have to know where their clients are. They have to capture all that data. When the company switched to HP 3PAR StoreServ, it was able to dramatically improve performance, boost capacity utilization and ensure it could meet future storage needs. Here’s how.

HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450: marching on with all-flash success

By Priyadarshi (Pd), Sr. Product Manager, HP 3PAR Storage

 

PDbyline.jpegLast June we launched HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450, our all-flash array. The message was Performance without Compromises and rightfully so. At that time, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 was the only all-flash that could deliver the performance (550K IOPS at or below 0.7 millisecond response time) AND all the rich data services like snapshots, replication, 3-data-center disaster recovery, vMSC certification, encryption and QoS. I was hoping that in the next six months, many of our competitors will catch up on the data services. I was wrong! Here’s why HP 3PAR StoreServ is still the flash leader.

 

HPStorageGuy and the South African TV Personality

Calvin and Derick.jpgI saw a New York Times article talking about a new trend - DIY African Safaris.  I contacted the reporter on Twitter and turns out we were both at Kruger National Park at the same time - doing DIY safaris.  So that brings me back to my last blog post on the topic of South Africa.  I had a couple of previous posts talking about my trip to South Africa.  One of them had some personal videos and pictures I took while visiting a Kruger National Park - a wild game park.  Check out those pictures and videos - I think they were unbelievable and I can't wait to go back to South Africa.  You can read the NYT article here.

 

Aside from getting back to (African) nature, the main reasons I went was to speak at a customer event that our local storage team did.  It was an great event.  The host of that event was Derek Watts - Derek was voted best male TV presenter in South Africa for several years in a row. Today, I have two podcasts from the event and a few pictures to share with you. 

 

Watch this Enterprise Strategy Group video and learn why ESG Sr Analyst Mark Peters said, “HP is the only vendor that offers a genuine single product storage family that’s capable of spanning and essentially integrating midrange platforms, all-flash devices, and all the way up to enterprise storage that can scale to multi-petabytes”.  Registration is required but there are lots of other great resources on the page and well worth it!

Storage QoS: where HP 3PAR StoreServ beats the competition

By Matthew Morrissey, 3PAR Product Marketing Manager, HP Storage

 

EdisonGroup_paper.jpgA recent white paper from Edison Group provides detailed insight on why Storage QoS is an essential component of today’s multi-tenant cloud environments and how HP 3PAR StoreServ Priority Optimization offers the most mature and complete Quality of Service implementation when compared with EMC and NetApp. 

 

You'll want to read this Forrester white paper, "Top Storage Capabilities Needed in 2014 to Reduce Risk and Maximize Performance" .  Here's a summary of the paper: the burden of storage continues to get heavier for organizations that wrestle with fast growth and are highly sensitive to outages and data loss. Some firms are tempted to maintain the status quo and simply add capacity to meet their near-term storage challenges. But technology innovations that can reshape a company’s infrastructure. Registration is required.
