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.
