Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced its latest innovations in 3PAR all-flash storage solution, including HPE 3PAR Operating System for hybrid IT.
The company claims that the new 3PAR Adaptive Data Reduction (ADR) delivers data compaction to lower capacity costs.
HPE said the new updates to 3PAR Peer Persistence mitigate risks by enabling disaster recovery across greater distances.
In addition, off-premises copy management with HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) extends data protection beyond the array.
The automation capabilities for 3PAR StoreServ Management Console (SSMC) improve business agility.
HPE, an all-flash storage vendor, aims to assist CIOs to simplify operations across the data center, mitigate risks from edge to core to cloud and support hybrid IT transformation.
HPE 3PAR innovations provide support for cloud-native applications, datacenter-wide orchestration, tier-1 resiliency and a seamless path to emerging technologies such as storage class memory (SCM) and NVM Express (NVMe).
“3PAR is a best-in-class array but we go further to optimize the full stack and provide data mobility across systems — an approach that has helped us grow faster than the market over the last 18 months,” said Bill Philbin, senior vice president, Data Center Infrastructure Group, Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
HPE said the 3PAR Adaptive Data Reduction (ADR) feature can reduce capacity needs by 75 percent. Businesses can selectively apply ADR that includes built-in intelligence to avoid wasting system resources. ADR features a unique 3PAR Data Packing algorithm that organizes data writes in a way that avoids the garbage-heavy processes that weigh down other flash storage arrays.
The latest 3PAR OS enables customers to accelerate applications running over iSCSI to reduce latency by up to 40 percent via 3PAR Express Writes optimization.
In addition, 3PAR OS serves more workloads with 3PAR File Persona updates that double scalability, automate provisioning and enable cross-protocol file sharing.
Businesses can reduce costs by up to 30 percent.
Additionally, HPE 3PAR Flash Now initiative enables acquisition of an upgraded 3PAR flash array plus networking and data protection for pennies per usable gigabyte per month via a simple cloud-like consumption model.
HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) provides seamless, application-managed snapshots and data movement from 3PAR to secondary HPE StoreOnce Systems.
The newest version of RMC delivers 23x faster backup and 7x faster restores than the leading backup ISV with 9x lower CPU consumption — which minimizes backup impact on application servers.
Due to all-inclusive licensing, RMC now comes at no additional charge with the 3PAR array. RMC can deliver as much as a half million dollar cost savings over a three-year period compared to traditional ISV backup process.
Data protected on HPE StoreOnce Systems can be replicated to the cloud thanks to HPE StoreOnce VSA software in Microsoft Azure with support from HPE Recovery Manager Central, Data Protector and other leading backup applications.
HPE is not charging extra for 3PAR OS 3.3.1, which is available in Q1 2017, for customers with valid support contracts.
The price of HPE StoreOnce VSA for Azure is $1400.
HPE Peer Copy and HPE Recovery Manager Central are available in Q2 2017 at no additional charge for 3PAR and StoreVirtual VSA customers with valid support contracts.
