Says the new hybrid flash storage, data protection, and enhanced file solutions are ideal for companies struggling with tight budgets
HP has released new storage offerings to give midsized companies the ability to cost-effectively increase performance while reducing risk.
HP is also offering 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 announced the press release.
Additionally, to help customers protect data with a more scalable HP is offering 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 that utilizes the latest SSDs and Adaptive Optimization tiering functionality to deliver 12 times the performance with more than 90 percent power and footprint savings per 2-node cluster than a spinning disk configuration.
HP Channel Partners can easily introduce midsize businesses to hybrid flash storage with the specially priced, 2-node HP StoreVirtual 4335 Hybrid SAN bundle at a 30 percent savings. Utilizing HP Peer Motion, customers can seamlessly move workloads to the new hybrid StoreVirtual cluster with only a few clicks and zero application disruption.
HP has also upgraded its StoreOnce Backup family to better accommodate the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses.
