HP breidt flash storage portfolio uit met betaalbare en geautomatiseerde all-flash array

All-Flash 3PAR StoreServ familie verdubbelt prestaties en verlaagt OpEx dankzij ingebouwde automatisering

Brussel – Vandaag kondigt HP nieuwe innovaties aan voor de HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage die de transformatie naar hybride IT en all-flash datacenters ondersteunen. Hiertoe behoort de nieuwe 8000 familie met de meest betaalbare all-flash array (AFA) binnen de branche.1 Vergeleken met vorige generaties2 wordt de workloadprestatie verdubbeld en is men verzekerd van de prestaties dankzij flash geoptimaliseerde quality of service (QoS) controles. 

De all-flash storagemarkt groeit snel. Verwacht wordt dat de primaire externe storage-inkomsten in 2019 voor 60 tot 70 procent uit flash bestaan, aangezien steeds meer gebruikers flash gebruiken om de applicaties in hun datacenters te versnellen.3 Binnen het snelgroeiende segment wordt HP door Gartner geïdentificeerd als leider in zijn Magic Quadrant for Solid State Arrays4, met de vermelding dat HP, op basis van de leveringen in 20145, de snelst groeiende flashleverancier is. Wat betreft het all-flash marktaandeel is HP gestegen naar de tweede positie 6. Tot slot heeft HP de HP 3PAR StoreServ 20000 familie aangekondigd, een eight-node enterprise flash familie met ongekende dichtheid en lage kosten ($1,50 per gebruikte gigabyte).7

De nieuwe quad-controller HP 3PAR StoreServ 8000 Storage familie versnelt voor gebruikers de overgang naar all-flash datacenters. Ook komt HP met een nieuw eight-controller HP 3PAR StoreServ 20800 AFA Starter Kit en software-updates voor de volledige HP 3PAR StoreServ familie. HP 3PAR StoreServ is de enige in zijn soort die multi-petabyte systemen tot 3,2 miljoen IOPs kan bedienen voor prijzen vanaf $19.479. Bovendien is het mogelijk om uit te schalen van 2 naar 8 controllers en heeft het bewezen tier-1 flexibiliteit. Dit is een gemakkelijke manier voor bedrijven om te voldoen aan alle eisen omtrent workloads.

Ongeacht grootte, budget, groeicijfers en kwaliteitseisen voor service of zelfs je storage netwerkomgeving,biedt HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage de beste flashoplossing om publieke, private of hybride clouds kracht bij te zetten. Dit met het ongeëvenaarde aanpassingsvermogen van een single architectuur,” aldus Manish Goel, Senior Vice President en General Manager van HP Storage.

Tier-1 all-flash from $19K brings resilient flash within reach of even more customers
For customers looking for the most affordable way to accelerate applications and consolidate infrastructure, the new HP 3PAR StoreServ 8000 family is a scale-out, quad-node design that includes all-flash configurations starting at $19K as well as converged-flash arrays that support expansion via spinning media. Like the HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage 20000 family, the 8000 family delivers up to 5.5 petabytes of usable flash capacity within a single floor tile without compromising data services or scalability.

Additionally, HP introduced new models in the eight-controller 20000 family, including a 20800 All-Flash Starter Kit starting at US $99K,8 placing the industry’s most scalable flash platform within reach of more enterprises and service providers. HP also announced the new 3PAR StoreServ 20450, an All-Flash Array which scales to 6 petabytes and 1.8 million IOPS.9 Built-in storage federation capabilities allow 8000 and 20000 models to be pooled together for up to 60 PB of aggregate usable capacity in a four-system federation with non-disruptive workload mobility across systems with just a single mouse click for unmatched agility.10

Twice the bandwidth and next-gen hardware-acceleration to boost application performance
Sharing the same hardware acceleration as the eight-node enterprise-flash 20000 family, the new 8000 family features the HP 3PAR Gen5 Thin Express ASIC and double the bandwidth of competitive platforms, enabling the 8000 family to more effectively deal with mixed and highly unpredictable workloads. With over 20 gigabytes per second of read bandwidth, this new hardware lets customers double the workload performance of bandwidth-heavy database applications, assuring that end users get the response times required to make faster business decisions.

Additionally, both the 3PAR StoreServ 8000 and 20000 flash arrays are now certified for SAP HANA Tailored Data Center Integration (TDI), assuring that customers can accelerate these mission-critical applications with confidence.11 Lastly, the HP 3PAR File Persona software has been enhanced to support even larger unstructured data applications, meaning customers can expand consolidation of both file and block workloads on a single, Tier-1 flash platform.12

Built-in automation of flash-optimized data services to boost agility and reduce risk
HP also announced enhancements to the HP 3PAR Operating System that deepen the portfolio’s rich set of autonomic, Tier-1 data services for greater return on flash investments and accelerated time to value. These software enhancements span the entire HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage family—across media types, data types, and connectivity protocols—even extending beyond the array to include storage area network (SAN) infrastructure.

HP 3PAR Priority Optimization software now allows users to specify latency goals as low as 0.5 milliseconds to ensure consistent service levels in multi-tenant environments where a large number of latency-sensitive applications are consolidated13. This level of hands-free, fine-grained QoS is unique in the industry and assures administrators can deliver consistent application performance through simple, policy-driven templates.

HP announced data protection enhancements to the 3PAR StoreServ powered by StoreOnce Recovery Manager Central for VMware (RMC-V). As the industry’s only flash-integrated, protection solution, RMC-V delivers 17x faster VM protection by taking application-consistent snapshots on the HP 3PAR StoreServ array, then automatically copying changed blocks directly to any HP StoreOnce appliance.14 RMC-V enhancements include support for VMware vSphere 6.0 with VMware Virtual Volumes (VVOLs) as well as more granular recovery of individual VMs and files to simplify data recovery.

For customers who are deploying flash over Fibre Channel, new HP SmartSAN for HP 3PAR StoreServ uses Express Provisioning technology to orchestrate SAN fabric zoning autonomically, reducing the number of steps required to provision a SAN by 80 percent.15

For service providers and midsize organizations looking to leverage Ethernet networking to reduce costs, HP 3PAR StoreServ enhancements reduce iSCSI latency and add support for iSCSI VLAN tagging. These new iSCSI features assure flash-optimized performance while lowering total storage networking infrastructure acquisition costs by $25K or more.16
