HP today revamped its storage lineup and consolidated its various product lines on one architecture.
Designed for virtualized, cloud and big data retention environments, HP's new solutions include new HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage, HP StoreAll Storage and HP StoreOnce Backup product offerings.
The new HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage is a midrange quad-controller platform offering Tier 1 storage availability and quality-of-service features at an entry price point for organizations. Supporting both block and file data services, the system is available with HDD and SSD or as an all-SSD configuration capable of performing more than 320,000 input/output operations per second. The HP StoreServ 7200 is available globally and starts at $20,000. HP StoreServ 7400 starts at $32,000.
The HP StoreAll Storage, a scalable platform for object and file data access, provides a simplified environment for big data retention and cloud storage that reduces the need for additional administrators or hardware. HP StoreAll Express Query was created by HP Labs and is a metadata database that allows clients to conduct search queries 100,000 times faster than previous file system search methods. Integration with HP Autonomy Intelligent Data Operating Layer (IDOL) offloads processing tasks to HP StoreAll so that analytics can be performed with more current data and using less compute hardware. Additional integration with HP StoreAll and HP Autonomy Consolidated Archive, as well as certification of other independent software vendor applications, provides safe, long-term retention of digital assets. HP StoreAll Storage is available Dec. 20 and is priced at 91 cents per GB.
The HP StoreOnce 2000 and 4000 Backup, with support for HP StoreOnce Catalyst software, provides efficient data movement and high-performance deduplication to reduce data protection costs in remote sites and data centers. HP StoreOnce 6200 Backup systems are available now at a starting price of $250,000. HP StoreOnce 2000 Backup systems start at $10,000 and HP StoreOnce 4000 Backup systems start at $30,000. The systems work with HP StoreOnce Catalyst Software, which features licenses starting at $500.
"Legacy storage vendors are simply not equipped to help organizations respond to new workloads, and bolting on new features to old architectures has created a nightmare," said David Scott, senior vice president and general manager, Storage Division, HP. "HP's unique set of Converged Storage innovations helps clients simplify infrastructure and reduce costs with a common architecture across storage segments and categories."
