HP accelerates IT-as-a-Service consolidation

HP introduces 3PAR StoreServ flash storage family to help customers consolidate data centre infrastructure.

HP has introduced innovations for the HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage family including flash-optimized data services to accelerate IT-as-a-Service consolidation and hybrid IT initiatives.

Other innovations for this family include 25 percent lower cost flash capacity, and a new class of massively scalable flash arrays.

Customers are searching for ways to extend the benefits of all-flash arrays across their data centers that go beyond performance, including increased productivity and data center consolidation.

HP aims to accelerate transformation to the all-flash data center, and has therefore lowered the cost of all-flash storage to US$1.50 per usable gigabyte and introducing ultra-dense and scalable flash systems.

"Early flash adopters are seeing added benefits such as extreme savings and productivity enhancements that are leading to an all-flash strategy for more applications" said Philip Davis, vice president & general manager, Storage, HP Asia-Pacific and Japan. "HP 3PAR StoreServ is in a class of its own, with the affordability, scale and resiliency required for datacenter-wide flash adoption."

More performance, less space
The new HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage 20000 enterprise flash family boosts performance with over 3.2 million IOPS at sub-millisecond latency. It consumes 85 percent less space than traditional high-end arrays for massive footprint reduction.

Also, this family scales-out to eight nodes and is ideal for customers consolidating multiple racks of legacy high-end storage while assuring application quality of service. The all-flash 3PAR StoreServ 20850 can deliver over 3.2 million IOPS at sub-millisecond latency and over 75 GBps of sustained throughput for maximum application performance.

The new family also includes the 3PAR StoreServ 20800 converged flash array that can scale up to 15 petabytes (PB) of usable capacity.

As all these new models are built on the HP 3PAR Gen5 Thin Express ASIC, they enable higher levels of performance, scalability and efficiency including hardware-accelerated deduplication.
