“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, Storage Division, 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 all flash solid state array is very impressive and will deliver amazing results which will not only resolve some customers existing storage or application performance issues, it might also create opportunities which couldn’t have been achieved due to issues with latency or the speed of delivery.
The additional software, san infrastructure and focus on data backup expands upon their existing storage offering to increase efficiency and reduce costs which are both significant innovations for their customers. Do check out the announcement for more of the specific announcements.
