HP has announced new storage offerings that give midsized companies the ability to cost-effectively increase performance while reducing risk.
Midsized companies need to move fast, yet often lack the resources to take advantage of powerful storage technologies widely deployed in the enterprise. HP is helping bridge this gap with low-cost ways to accelerate applications, including the most affordable solid state drive (SSD) read-caching solution from a major vendor with SSD options for HP MSA Storage starting at $1,599.
For customers looking at hybrid flash storage, HP is now offering a new HP StoreVirtual Storage system which is 12 times faster than an equivalently priced spinning media array. Additionally, HP is now helping customers protect data with a more scalable HP StoreOnce Backup appliance and new HP StoreEasy Storage file serving appliances that include software for disaster recovery and cloud backup.
“The demand for rapid response to changing conditions is crucial for businesses of all sizes, but for midsized companies, access to required storage capabilities can be just out of reach,” said Barun Lala, Director, Storage, HP India. “At HP, we’re working with channel partners to simplify storage infrastructure and accelerate growth for customers by bringing hot technologies such as flash storage down into the entry segment.”
HP also released a new StoreVirtual 4335 hybrid flash array to deliver 12 times the performance with more than 90 percent power and footprint savings per 2-node cluster than a spinning disk configuration. The system is compatible with and shares the same management experience as other StoreVirtual-based solutions, including the HP StoreVirtual Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA), HP ConvergedSystem 200-HC StoreVirtual hyper-converged appliances, and the built-in storage within HP Helion OpenStack.
The new StoreVirtual 4355 Hybrid SAN Solution 2-Node bundle providing 12.4 TB of usable capacity (before network RAID) is available at the rate of $59,000.
