Virtualizing tier-1 applications with all-flash VMworld session podcast


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

Last week I gave the 3PAR team a break from publishing a 3PAR Thursday blog post and I’m doing the same thing again this week, sort of.  Earlier this week at VMworld Priyadarshi Prasad (Pd) and Eric Siebert presented a session titled The Perfect Stormage: Virtualizing Tier-1 apps with All-Flash Arrays.  I recorded the audio of the session and wanted to share it with you here.  I’m also including a PDF of the session’s slides that you can use. 


Here’s what Pd and Eric covered at a high level:

  • Challenges virtualizing tier-1 applications: performance, security, high availability, and disaster recovery
  • A deep look at HP 3PAR AFA and how it helps address the challenges
  • HP 3PAR in action – Andrew Walters, City of Phoenix Police Department
  • Summary from Eric on what differentiates HP 3PAR

Here's the podcast:

VMworld was another great event – and I think HP 3PAR AFA got a ton of a attention.  We of course announced the entry level HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 All-Flash Starter Kit, coming in at around $35,000 US street pricing.  There are a few good press articles and blogs that I've seen and thought I'd point you to them:

I have worked at HP and now HPE since 1983, all of it around storage but 100% focused on storage since 1990. I blog, create videos, and podcasts to help you better understand HPE Storage.
