HPE ups all-flash data center play with new storage offerings

11 Mar 16

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has extended its push for the all flash data center with storage portfolio enhancements to help enterprises capture the benefits of an all-flash data center while shielding them from risk.

The company says the all-flash data center can reduce IT budgets by one-third while improving business agility, however in order to realise the benefits at scale enterprises and service providers need a Tier-1 flash storage architecture that delivers multi-protocol support and advanced data protection.

The company rolled out a HPE 3PAR 20840 converged flash storage array, which it claims is ‘the highest performing, most scalable converged flash array on the market’.

The offering scales out ot eight controller nodes and is built to provide ‘six-nines’ uptime, with HPE saying the 3PAR StorServe 20840 is ideal for consolidating multiple racks of legacy, high-end storage for capex and opex savings.

The system delivers up to 21 Petabytes of usable capacity and up to 3.2 million random-read IOPS, while using 85% less space, power and cooling than traditional high-end arrays, HPE says.

The vendor also served up HPE StoreOnce 5500 and multi-node 6600 data protection systems.

The new StoreOnce lineup offers twice the scalability, three times greater performance and half the cost than some comparable systems, HPE says.

The StoreOnce 5500 is aimed at helping enterprises meet recovery time and recovery point objectives ‘even in massively consolidated environments’ by enabling 33% faster backup that competitive systems and scalability up to 864TB at a cost of $0.02 per GB of logical capacity.

The StoreOnce 6600 is designed for mission critical Tier-1 environments and features multi-node resiliency and autonomic restart capabilities. The 6600 is can protect up to 1.7 Petabytes of data at up to 184TB per hour.

The company also launched a Get Thinner Guarantee program, which provides a free, up-front workload assessment and a written assurance of as much as 75% capacity savings in migrations from legacy storage.
