This morning while reading my Twitter timeline, I came across a video and Lab Validation Report from ESG.  They were commissioned by HP to look at the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450, our all-flash array that was announced at HP Discover in June.  The video here summarizes the testing they ran.  It's about 5 minutes and worth checking out.

Why is this important?

Beyond the impact that SSD is having, here's some context on why I think this is important.  There are tectonic shifts happening around cloud, virtualization, and explosive data growth that are driving a new approach to IT (a new style of IT).  Instead of focusing on an app-centric approach, IT must be delivered as a service because unpredictable is the new constant:  planning service levels when you don't know what's coming, what impact will a new application have on the service level of others, what happens if you run out of performance, etc.

 

What does this mean for you?

All this is driving new requirements for a modern tier-1 storage infrastructure.  You need to deliver Cloud and IT-as-a-service and on top of that it needs to enable:

  • Manage unpredictable growth
  • Non-disruptively, Federated data mobility
  • Optimize asset utilization
  • Self configure, optimize, and tuning
  • Secure multi-tenancy
  • Quality and resiliency for massive consolidation

In my latest HP 3PAR StoreServ portfolio ChalkTalk, I talk about our vision for HP 3PAR - Converged Storage that delivers Polymorphic Simplicity.  This will be a big theme at HP Discover and I'll talk about it more here in the coming weeks.

 

Before I conclude 

I mentioned at the beginning that ESG also wrote a Lab Validation Report that you can download from hp.com.  Now I'll need to go talk to my HP 3PAR team and ask them to please let me know when great information like this is available.
