HP announces new and simplified enterprise storage solutions
Based from a research by Evaluator Group, many organizations was as much as 70 percent of their budgets on capacity that is not actually storing data while administrators struggle to manage dozens of disparate storage architectures. This creates a rigid sprawling infrastructure that often forces organizations to choose between features and affordability.
HP recently announced new breakthrough storage solutions for their Converged Storage portfolio that breaks through complexities and inefficiencies with a single architecture for all sizes of client deployments.
The 2011-launched HP Converged Storage portfolio now includes:
- HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage is the industry’s only midrange quad-controller platform offering Tier 1 storage availability and quality-of-service features at an easy entry price point for organizations.Supporting both block and file data services, the system is available with HDD and SSD or as an all-SSD configuration capable of performing more than 320,000 input/output operations per second—2.4 times that of a similarly priced competitive array.
- HP StoreAll Storage, a highly scalable platform for object and file data access, provides a simplified environment for big data retention and cloud storage that reduces the need for additional administrators or hardware. HP StoreAll Express Query was created by HP Labs, the company’s central research arm, and is a metadata database that allows clients to conduct search queries 100,000 times faster than previous file system search methods, facilitating informed business decisions based on the most current data. Integration with HP Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) offloads processing tasks to HP StoreAll so that analytics can be rapidly performed with more current data and using less compute hardware. Additional integration with HP StoreAll and HP Autonomy Consolidated Archive, as well as certification of other independent software vendor applications, provides safe, long-term retention of digital assets.
- HP StoreOnce 2000 and 4000 Backup, with support for HP StoreOnce Catalyst software, provides efficient data movement and high-performance deduplication to reduce data protection costs in remote sites and data centers. The new models perform backup operations up to three times faster at a 35 percent lower cost than the closest competitive system.
“Legacy storage vendors are simply not equipped to help organizations respond to new workloads, and bolting on new features to old architectures has created a nightmare,” said Charles Ty, business manager, HP Storage, HP Philippines “HP’s unique set of Converged Storage innovations helps clients simplify infrastructure and reduce costs with a common architecture across storage segments and categories.”
These new solutions are already available worldwide. Additional information about the new HP Converged Storage solutions is available at www.hp.com/go/storage/nextera.
