To make it easier to find information about HPE Storage products and solutions, we are doing spring cleaning. This includes consolidation of some older boards, and a simpler structure that more accurately reflects how people use HPE Storage.

Been there, done that....

I have been at the EMC site in Cork, Ireland. I think they do a nice product, but the Symm seems a bit old in the construction. I belive that HP?s XP are faster and have more potential for the future. But it?s hard to take a finial decision.

Re: Been there, done that....

the XPs in any case are manufactured by Hitachi Data Systems if you want to find some more info on them http://www.hds.com/storage/

I don't think you'll go wrong with either solution.. but I could suggest that if you're running all on hp-ux servers you may as well get the XP seeing as you'll only have one support center to call.

Hi Fredric.
Bill got you a good link.
Maybe you know it already, but for Symmetrix:
http://www.emc.com/products/systems/symmetrix.jsp

so, I use Symmetrix but, as Bill said, if you buy XPs the support will be much easier.
I have some problems dealing with EMC and HP when they don't know whose fault is!!

good luck.
