Back in May, I had a blog post titled Making the move from EMC to HP 3PAR StoreServ easy - and that post included a ChalkTalk I had done describing the EMC to 3PAR Online Import Utility. Today I have a demo video to share with you showing just how easy it really is.  In the demo video I do give an overview of the software and how it works but check out my previous blog if you want a bit more.  Here's the video:

How cool is that! Thanks for the post and video demo, good to know if I should ever have a need for a migration, but I still prever the EVA series SAN's.

Hey Jose - EVA was definitely a great storage array 15 years ago.  But as I've discussed many times here, with the emergence of virtualization and cloud computing, HP 3PAR is a fanstatic next generation array for EVA customers (and administrators).  In fact, check out this recent blog from one of our former EVA product managers now working on 3PAR:If you liked your EVA, you’ll love HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage

Hello, Calvin!


Why HP killed EVA, but still sell MSA?
I think P6000 really good array for SMB with better functionality, then MSA P2040. P6000 quite slow and can't compete with 3PAR.

Hi Yaroslav,

The challenge is that the EVA didn't get down to be an entry level array, where MSA 2040 and now MSA 1040 can.  From a portfolio perspective, I think we made the right move in dropping the EVA.  It was a great system in it's time but as you said, HP 3PAR screams in comparison, especially in today's virtualized, multi-tenant, mix-workload environments.
