What do nachos, a time machine, and a storage-eating monster have to do with HP 3PAR StoreServ? Allow me to introduce my guests, Fafa and Mario, puppet stars of the Glove and Boots video blog. The two are joining forces with HP to help us paint a picture of what it would be like to live in a world without the Tier-1 capabilities of HP Storage. To quote Glove and Boots, “Everything would seem just a little bit worse”. 

3PAR's resilient architecture means that all your applications can get Tier-1 capabilities, whether you’ve got budget for midrange or high-end storage or even if you are looking for all-flash performance in mission-critical environments—one architecture does it all. With EMC, you  manage different workloads on different storage architectures. 

Who wants to manage different architectures?
Glove and Boots started out as a puppet show performing in the subways of New York City, so Fafa andmario 3par fafa_2sm.png Mario are pretty street savvy. But even they cringe at the idea of having to learn how to navigate the fragmented complexity that many storage administrators are faced with. And with today's lean IT staffs, that's an extra amount of work you don't want to take on.

I've written previously about our 72 Hours of Yes  at EMC World in Las Vegas a few weeks ago. In this video, the Glove and Boots crew gives you a taste of what it would be like to live in a land without HP 3PAR: For one thing, provisioning storage for virtualization would be up to 8 times slower. And you might find that your entertainment options are limited to VHS versions of the 1990 musical police drama series Cop Rock…tune in below for the full story:
