Once, Easy & Virtual – HP storage for those on tight budgets

HP unveil new hybrid flash storage, data protection, and enhanced file solutions.

By Ellie Burns

Midsized companies now have the opportunity to cost-effectively increase performance while reducing risk with HP’s new storage offerings, announced today at its Global Partner Conference in Vegas.

Included in the new offerings is a SSD read-caching solution for HP MSA Storage starting at $1,599, enabling customers to perform large-scale queries and other data-intensive operations with up to 65% less latency, which in turn boosts business productivity.

Also introduced was a new HP StoreVirtual Storage system, dubbed the StoreVirtual 4335 hybrid flash array.

Combining the latest SSDs and Adaptive Optimisation tiering functionality, the hybrid flash array delivers 12 times the performance and more than 90% power and footprint savings per 2-node cluster than a spinning disk configuration.

The system is compatible with 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.

Along with the launch of the new storage offerings, upgrades to the company’s StoreOnce Backup family were also announced. The new entry-level StoreOnce 2900 protects up to 70 TB of data in a single, 12-hour window and restores up to 41 TB in the same period.

HP boast that the StoreOnce 2900 is capable of delivering customers twice as much backup capacity and 30% better performance than competitive systems at 23% lower cost.

For smaller customers looking for a completely software-defined backup appliance, the HP StoreOnce Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) can be run within a virtual machine without any need to purchase additional hardware.

HP also announced a refresh of its StoreEasy Storage with new 1450, 1650, and 1850 models based on HP ProLiant Gen9 servers.

Starting at under $5,500, HP StoreEasy Storage helps companies support expanding file storage needs — now with 56% greater capacity at 20% lower cost.

HP has also combined its HP StoreEasy and HP LiveVault TurboRestore technology to enable easy deployment of hybrid 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 Craig Nunes, vice president, Storage Marketing, HP.

"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."
