New HP StoreOnce 2900: enterprise-class data protection for small and midsized businesses

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage  @ashwinkshetty

 

Last week, we held our annual Global Partner Conference (GPC) in Las Vegas. Sure, there was plenty of fun, fun and bright lights but more importantly, our partners had the chance to understand the benefits of partnering with the world’s largest technology company—and how we help customers solve their business problems with the latest technology innovations.

 

Of course, my colleague HPStorageGuy already blogged about the major storage announcements at HP GPC 2015. Here I’m focusing in on our new HP StoreOnce Backup appliance: the HP StoreOnce 2900. Here goes.

Understanding the business value of HP 3PAR StoreServ

The World’s Strongest Technologist

Architecture matters. Each and every single vendor out there cannot wait to tell you why their architecture is “best.” When asked why a given technology is better than a competitor's, you will inevitably get an answer that extolls the virtues of that architecture while hearing terms like "greater resiliency, lower latency, and flexibly scalability." This tends to satisfy the question and there's either unanimous agreement, silent disagreement, or an open dialogue where technical opinions are exchanged. Thus begins the long process where one side does their due diligence on product investigation and the other side tries to answer every technical objection possible. And while all this is going on, one point often gets overlooked: Why does all this matter?

Storage News from HP Global Partner Conference

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!

 

There's more to read about so head over to the full blog post to get all of the details.

Combining snapshots and backups for best practice data protection

By Simon Watkins, WW Product Marketing Manager, Backup, Recovery & Archive (BURA), HP Storage

 

When it comes to best practice data protection for your business-critical applications, no single snapshot or backup technology can provide the complete solution. Snapshots and backups have different yet complementary roles to play for availability, backup and disaster recovery.When you’re looking for a comprehensive, tiered and converged data protection architecture that balances availability and protection, it should not be a question of either-or but more a case of where and how to best use snapshots and backup.  

 

So what is the value of combining snapshots and backups for availability and backup in your organization?

By Lee Kaminski, HP Storage

 

HP OneView and 3PAR StoreServ continue to receive great awards and hit amazing milestones. Sure, the awards are great but more importantly, our users are realizing the benefits of converged infrastructure and the New Style of IT.

A few months back, I blogged about the astounding user adoption of HP OneView. Today I have sonenew news: since that time an even more astounding number of new users have started to realize the benefits of the New Style of IT and converged infrastructure. HP OneView has now passed the 100,000-license milestone and is installed in more than 80 countries.
