HP: Converged Storage Leadership with New Storage Federation Technology

Hewlett-Packard Company (HP)expanded its Converged Storage portfolio with HP Peer Motion, new federated storage softwaqre which enables clients to transparently move application workloads between disk systems in virtualized and cloud computing environments.

HP also introduced new HP 10000 3PAR Storage Systems with powerful features for the delivery of enterprise IT within public and private clouds, called IT-as-a-Service. These features include multitenancy for workload consolidation, expanded thin technologies for efficient capacity utilization and autonomic load rebalancing to drive enterprise agility.

IDC estimates that by 2012, 85 percent of new applications will be specifically designed to be accessed in the cloud. Agile delivery of these virtualized and cloud based applications requires linking multiple storage systems together to act as a single entity. Called storage federation this capability can eliminate the extra layer of virtualization appliances and , a s a result, decrease cost, administration overhead service level risk withing the data center architecture.

Simplified Management Without Sacrificing Performance
Clients can be confident that the innovation which made 3PAR unique is continuing as part of HP. Less than a year following HP's acquisition of 3PAR, the company is introducing the HP 10000 3PAR Storage System with two new models, the V400 and V800 (HP 3PAR V-Class). The HP 3PAR V-Class is a powerful, mission-criticalstorage system that simultaneously supports mixed, unpredictable and multitenant workloads on a single high-performance array.

Efficiency to meet the demands of exclusive data growth Clients using competitive storage arrays typically achieve written data ulitization rates as little as 10 to 20 percent. The HP 3PAR V-Class eliminates the need to purchase unnecessary disk space by fully leveraging available capacity.

Pricing and Availability
HP VirtualSystem and HP CloudSystem solutions featuring the HP 3PAR V-Class Storage System will be available later this year. The HP P10000 3PAR Storage System will be available worldwide on Auguzt 29 with a U.S. list price starting $288,633 from HP or channel partners.
