HP has announced innovations for HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage to support the transformation to hybrid IT and all-flash data centers, including a new 8000 family featuring the industry’s most affordable all-flash array (AFA), twice the workload performance of previous generations and automated performance assurance with flash-optimised quality of service (QoS) controls.
The flash storage market is growing at over 46 per cent compound annual growth as customers embrace flash to accelerate more applications across their data centers. Within this fast-paced segment, Gartner identified HP as a leader in its Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays and noted that HP was the fastest growing flash vendor based on revenue shipments in 2014. Recently, HP moved up to the number two market share position in all-flash and announced the HP 3PAR StoreServ 20000 family, an eight-node enterprise flash family with leading density and costs as low as $1.50 per usable gigabyte.
Now, HP is accelerating customer transition to all-flash data centers with the new quad-controller HP 3PAR StoreServ 8000 Storage family as well as a new eight-controller HP 3PAR StoreServ 20800 AFA Starter Kit and software updates for the full HP 3PAR StoreServ family. HP 3PAR StoreServ is able to span from a $19K entry price to multi-peta byte systems reaching 3.2 million IOPs, with scale-out capabilities from 2 to 8 controllers, and proven tier-1 resiliency giving businesses a simple approach to meet virtually any workload requirement.
Barun Lala, Director, Storage, HP India said, “Regardless of size, budget, growth rate, quality of service requirements, or even storage network environment, HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage offers a best-in-class flash solution to power public, private, or hybrid cloud with uncompromising adaptability from a single architecture.”
