Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has announced a new initiative to address demand for flexible storage consumption models, accelerate all-flash datacenter adoption, assure the right level of resiliency, and help customers transform to a hybrid IT infrastructure.
With a vigorous spur of flash storage from niche application performance accelerator to the default media for critical workloads – HPE’s 3PAR StoreServ Storage platform has been a major player in all-flash array market sharing major growth, performance, and economics. The new HPE 3PAR Flash Now initiative touts customers a way to acquire this prime all-flash technology on-premises starting at $0.03 per usable Gigabyte per month, a fraction of the cost of public cloud solutions.
“Capitalizing on digital disruption requires that customers be able to flexibly consume new technologies,” said Vikram K, Director, Datacenter and Hybrid Cloud, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India. “Helping customers benefit from both technology and consumption flexibility is at the heart of HPE’s innovation agenda.”
Enabling the all-flash data center at less than half the cost of public cloud
Many customers are in the process of weighing the performance and security of on-premises infrastructure against the perceived cost savings and flexibility gains of public cloud platforms. To eliminate the need to compromise, HPE announced a comprehensive initiative that brings together the best of on-premises performance, application availability, and control with the convenience and agility of public cloud consumption models.
Starting at just $0.03/GB usable per month for all-flash HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage and bringing together multiple complementary technology and support elements, HPE 3PAR Flash Now allows customers to benefit from all-flash storage performance, embedded data protection and application availability, as well as security and control for the data they need to keep on-premises.
More than just a financing program, HPE 3PAR Flash Now is sought to boast all-flash datacenter adoption, simplifies migration from legacy storage, reduces risk and provides a seamless growth path for customers to manage future technology transitions.
In addition to delivering the performance of HPE 3PAR StoreServ all-flash storage, the initiative brings together technology innovations, programs and services such as HPE Flexible Capacity and Pre-Provisioning.
Together, these complementary elements give customers the flexibility to:
High-performance networking and automation to protect service levels
Protecting application service levels and maximizing return from investments in the all-flash data center requires the right networking bandwidth and ability to rapidly connect apps to infrastructure. To support this, HPE also announced a key part of the 3PAR Flash Now initiative with complete update to the latest StoreFabric 32Gb (Gen 6) Fibre Channel portfolio.
The new portfolio features HPE Smart SAN technology for fully automated orchestration directly from HPE 3PAR StoreServ flash storage arrays. This capability reduces provisioning time by 90 percent — thus saving hours of manual effort while reducing risk due to human error or network changes.
For the last year, HPE asserts to federate its HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage and StoreOnce data protection platforms in order to enable zero-impact application protection as customers move to the all-flash data center.
The company also announced a joint initiative across the HPE Technology Services Consulting division and a leading SAP integrator using HPE Recovery Manager Central technology to protect in-memory SAP HANA applications at scale without impacting application performance.
In addition, for flash-adjacent archiving and web-scale digital asset management, HPE announced that it has extended its high-end tape portfolio to drive down long-term storage costs to under $0.01 per GB via a new reseller relationship with Spectra Logic, sought to be industry’s most scalable deep storage tape archive vendor.
