HP 3PAR StoreServ all-flash for SAP HANA TDI

We think HP 3PAR StoreServ all-flash solutions provide best-in-class price performance, unparalleled space and power efficiencies plus high reliability for SAP HANA TDI. For example, for a four SAP HANA server node scale-up configuration, the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 all-flash array consumes 60% less space and 60% less power than the specified EMC VNX7600 array with HDDs.SSD-based arrays also offer higher reliability with a 5-year drive warranty compared to a 3-year warranty for HDDs. TDI-certified HP 3PAR StoreServ all-flash configurations start with just eight SSDs with the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 All-flash Starter Kit. These features are all complemented by the full suite of Tier-1 data services offered for all arrays in the 3PAR family.  


HP 3PAR StoreServ offerings for SAP HANA TDI

c03801620.pngNot only have we increased our HP 3PAR StoreServ all-flash configurations for TDI, we have significantly expand scalability and reduced drive counts for all certified configurations. HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 and 7450 with four array controller nodes can scale to 12 SAP HANA server nodes. The HP 3PAR StoreServ 10800 with eight controller nodes can scale to 32 SAP HANA server nodes. Most supported configurations allow for multi-tenancy or sharing of the HP 3PAR StoreServ system with non-HANA applications for maximum storage utilization.
