HPE launches new offerings to accelerate move to all-flash data center

28 Jan 16

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has launched new StoreServ storage solutions its says will accelerate the move to all-flash data centers, providing a ‘fast and safe’ path for enterprises.

The company has also integrated 3PAR StoreServ with new HPE StoreOnce and HPE StoreEver data protection and back-up product lines.

Joybrata Mukherjee, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India country head, storage, says with the increasing need for agility, organisations want to take advantage of game-changers like flash without introducing risk.

“To meet those demands Hewlett Packard Enterprise simplified storage with a single flash-optimised 3PAR StoreServ line from the entry to enterprise with tier-1 resiliency and built in data protection,” Mukherjee says.

HPE says increasing adoption of offerings such as IT-as-a-service and data analytics are driving flash storage adoption, which provides speed and predicatable service levels and also reduces the storage footprint by up to 85% over spinning disks.

The products were unveilled late last year and have now been localised for regional release.

HPE says 3PAR StoreServ Storage enables companies to accelerate the transformation to the all-flash data center with solutions that accommodate new and mixed media types in the same array, while maintaining performance and enterprise-class resiliency.

The vendor says unlike pure flash systems designed for single media types or single SAN protocols, StoreServ Storage features a flash-optimised design that supports both file and block storage and a secondary tier of HDDs.

The company also introduced a range of new 3PAR StoreServ products and services, including flash acceleration for Oracle, online import software and support for 3D NAND drives.
