HP Storage 7450 All-Flash Announcement at HP Discover 2013

I have the pleasure of attending my 3rd HP Discover this week in Las Vegas along with the Industry Blogger team. Together we will be covering the event socially via our blogs, twitter, facebook, etc.

This morning 8:30am Pacific time (for those who think Las Vegas is all play) HP unveiled the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-Flash Storage array for flash-optimized storage that delivers high performance and low latency to boost service levels for applications without compromising resiliency, Tier 1 data services, and enterprise-class features. As David Scott mentioned, Flash storage is a curve ball in the Storage space. Over the last year we have seen several start-ups/new players in this space. Key players in this space include Violin,XtremeIO and HP’s arch nemesis EMC 🙂

As we are at HP Discover and the focus is HP products and announcements, what does the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-Flash Storage array look like, what are the performance metrics and how does it fall into the Polymorphic simplicity?

New: HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450

Accelerated: 554K IOPS @ 0.7 ms latency Massively parallelized architecture, flash-optimized cache algorithms and QoS

Value Points

  • Performance without compromise
  • Efficient: Reduce capacity requirements up to 50% and extend flash lifespan
  • Multi-layered and fine-grained virtualization with hardware-accelerated data compaction
  • Bulletproof: Eliminate downtime for performance-critical applications
  • Quad-controller design with persistent cache and ports, peer failover, and multi-site replication
  • Futureproof: Move data seamlessly to balance performance and cost
  • Polymorphic simplicity across Tier 1, midrange, and flash with federated data mobility
