HP has expanded its Converged Storage portfolio with a solid-state optimized all-flash HP 3PAR StoreServ system. The company also has unveiled the HP StoreOnce Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) that it says cuts the cost of small-site backup by up to 65 percent. Both are available to VARs and channel partners.
“It’s impossible for organizations to deal with unpredictable workloads cost-effectively if they’re managing disparate storage silos,” said David Scott, senior vice president and general manager of the Storage Division at HP. “With the new 3PAR StoreServ and StoreOnce innovations, customers get best-in-class, purpose-built solutions to address critical new requirements while retaining the simplicity that comes from an approach that can manage and serve a variety of needs without creating new storage silos.”
The HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 Storage system delivers more than 550,000 input/output operations per second with less than 0.7 millisecond response time. Flash-specific caching algorithms dynamically adjust read/write granularity to reduce latency and speed transactions. In addition, HP 3PAR Priority Optimization software assures performance for specific workloads to improve overall productivity.
New features added to HP 3PAR StoreServ strengthen enterprise security with advanced data encryption to assist healthcare, finance and government customers to meet their compliance requirements.
HP StoreOnce VSA meanwhile deploys as a virtual machine on existing industry-standard servers, eliminating the need for customers to purchase dedicated hardware. It enables backup-as-a-service offerings for hosting providers and lowers costs for enterprise remote office protection. In addition, HP StoreOnce VSA reduces physical hardware requirements by up to 50 percent and energy costs by up to 70 percent, it said.
