Making the move from EMC to HP 3PAR StoreServ easy


CJZ Headshot fixed 150 x 150.jpgBy Calvin Zito, @CalvinZito  vExpert 4 years.jpg


A couple of weeks ago, I wrote a post titled "Replacing EMC with HP 3PAR StoreServ".  That post had a lot of really good reasons why HP 3PAR is having great success based on market accolades.  If you didn't see it, check it out. 


One of the big issues with moving to a new array is the cost of data migration.  In fact, published some research on the cost of storage array migration and stated that the total cost of migration is 54% of the cost of a typical $300,000 array.  I would venture a guess that with lower cost midrange arrays, the cost of data migration is higher than 54%. 


My colleague Ivan Iannaccone talked about the new Online Import software in a blog post yesterday - today, I want to share with you a ChalkTalk I have that shows you the software.  Here's my ChalkTalk:



72 Hours of Yes in the Land of No

If you’re attending EMC World in Las Vegas, you’ll be living in the land of no. As in no Tier-1 capabilities at a72hoursofyes_lockup_horizontal.jpg mid-range price. No 8X faster provisioning. And no guarantees like HP Storage. So if you happen to find yourself there, instead of taking no for an answer, look to HP for some yes.


Throughout the conference, HP will counter EMC’s no with 72 Hours of Yes. Our HP Yes Team will encourage EMC World attendees to ask for something they’d really like to do while they’re in Vegas. They’ll tweet us their requests to #72HoursOfYes, asking for anything from VIP restaurant access to a high-speed NASCAR ride-along. From the sublime to the extreme, all requests will be considered, as long as they are legal.


As the tweets come in, the Yes Team will go into action, fulfilling as many requests as possible in 72 hours. All the fun and excitement will be captured and shared, so follow us @72HoursOfYes.
