In the high-end report, HP 3PAR Teaser_XP7_Double_220x160_tcm245_1619235_tcm245_1518597_tcm245-1619235.jpgStoreServ and HP XP Storage were rated 4.0 and 4.2, respectively. The two reports assess storage systems and rate them based on critical capabilities for primary storage. These studies are great assets when you’re looking at storage for modern data centers because they describe practical use cases as the real value measure of these array platforms. 

 

Replacing EMC with HP 3PAR StoreServ

I reached out to HP Partner SoftChoice after hearing that they had won the HP Storage US Growth Partner of the year award at the HP Global Partner Conference.  I did a podcast with Jim Willis from SoftChoice and am I glad I did.  Jim told me about a customer who when faced with a support contract renewal of six-digits from EMC decided to look at what their options were.

 

In stepped Jim, SoftChoice, and HP 3PAR StoreServ.  When you listen to this podcast, you'll hear more proof that HP 3PAR StoreServ is making a huge impact in the storage market!  Go to the full blog post to listen to the podcast or you can go to http://hpstorage.me/ATSB-podcasts and download #172.

 

DCIG Midrange and Flash combined ranking.pngThe podcast with Jim got me thinking - DCIG has done a Buyer's Guide for both All Flash Arrays and Midrange Arrays.   HP 3PAR StoreServ was named "Best-in-Class" in the Midrange report and was number 3 and "Recommended" in the All Flash Buyers' Guide.  I took those two reports and looked for vendors that had a common platform between midrange and AFA.  No surprise to me that HP 3PAR StoreServ comes out on top, by a long shot.

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

By Beth Joseph, Product Marketing Manager, 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.
