Customers Share Their Secrets: San Diego Metropolitan Transit System

I have one last customer video I've been holding out on that I did at Nth Symposium.  I want to share one today.  This is a great story - the San Diego Metropolitan Transit System has multiple video cameras on 600 buses, 120 trolleys and many stations with multiple cameras all collecting video.  When their storage system, from another storage vendor, had a "catastrophic melt down" and data loss, CTO Stevan White turned to Nth Generation and HP for help. 

 

San Diego MTS implemented HP 3PAR StoreServ and in Stevan's words, "We went from freaked out to very comfortable with our storage".  I really enjoyed talking to Stevan and think you'll like this video.

What our customers say about the business value of StoreOnce Backup solutions

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage @ashwinkshetty

 

IDCJPEG.jpgIn a recent HP Storage blog, Chris Johnson, Vice President HP Storage EMEA, wrote a great post highlighting key storage principles to remove the BURA bottlenecks in your organization. This BURA Sunday, I’m going to focus on StoreOnce Backup business value from our customers’ perspective that is part of the recent IDC study Chris referenced in his post. The fact that customers shared their experiences after deploying our StoreOnce solutions gives much credence to what we have been saying about our StoreOnce technology.

Last week as part of our HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 announcement, my 3PAR Thursday blog focused on the performance acceleration delivered by HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1. The announcement also talked about the HP 3PAR Flash Advisor toolset that helps HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage customers asses current capacity and performance profiles via built-in the 3PAR OS toolset in order to optimize current and future flash investments. This week, I’m talking about this in a bit more detail and explaining why these capabilities are so important to enable a smooth transition of application and workloads to use flash-based media.

Similar to the StoreOpen Mac and Linux versions, it works with a single library partition with up to 4 drives and 48 slots. Remember, HP is the only vendor that provides this tool as a FREE-of-charge download. Download it today: www.hp.com/go/StoreOpen

By Priyadarshi (Pd), Product Line Manager, HP 3PAR Storage @Priyadarshi_Pd

To say that cMLC SSDs have been widely adopted by our 3PAR StoreServ customers would be an understatement. Our customers just love our ability to bring flash at a price point you can afford—with the certainty of a five-year warranty that covers wear-outs, plus unique Adaptive Sparing technology that enhances endurance. But are all cMLCs the same? To understand this, let’s take a step back and understand cMLCs a little better.
