HP StoreOnce Virtual Storage Appliance cuts small site backup cost by 65%

Infotech Lead Asia: HP India on Monday said its StoreOnce Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) cuts the cost of small site backup by up to 65 percent.

There are other benefits as well.

HP StoreOnce VSA reduces physical hardware requirements by up to 50 percent and energy costs by up to 70 percent. The new HP StoreOnce VSA joins software-defined networking, server and storage as part of the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio.

HP also announced a solid-state optimizedall-flash HP 3PAR StoreServ system that delivers performance and low latency without compromising enterprise resiliency or adding datacenter complexity.

Barun Lala, director, HP Storage, HP India, said: “With the new 3PAR StoreServ and StoreOnce innovations customers get best-in-class purpose-built solutions to address critical new requirements while retaining the simplicity that comes from an approach that can manage and serve a variety of needs without creating new storage silos.”

HP promises better storage options for Indian enterprises

HP targets healthcare, finance, and government customers with the new additions.

In move that will strengthen HP’s presence among Indian enterprises, its 3PAR StoreServ 7450 Storage system delivers more than 550,000 input/output operations per second with less than 0.7 millisecond response time.

The other main advantage is that flash-specific caching algorithms adjust read/write granularity to reduce latency and speed transactions. In addition, HP 3PAR Priority Optimization software assures performance for specific workloads to improve overall productivity.

HP says 3PAR StoreServ 7450 Storage system has hardware-accelerated data compaction that reduces capacity needs by up to 50 percent without degrading performance.

System wide striping, which automatically writes data across all resources, increases throughput, load balances the system, and extends media life by eliminating hot spots.

New features added to HP 3PAR StoreServ strengthens enterprise security with advanced data encryption to assist to meet their compliance requirements.

Meanwhile, HP announced a new HP StoreFabric 16-gigabit (Gb) SAN infrastructure that eliminates bandwidth bottlenecks to maximize the performance of flash-based systems.

The HP StoreEver MSL6480 Tape Library has enterprise-class features for long-term data protection at a midrange price. It starts small and expands easily to provide industry-leading performance, scale and density – up to 60.4 TB/hour and 3.5 PB – in a single library.
