The MSA 2040 Sets New Standards for $/IOPS in Entry SAN, 3x to 4x Today’s Competition

Hi Experts/Community,

 

Fast: The MSA 2040 Sets New Standards for $/IOPS in Entry SAN, 3x to 4x Today’s Competition:

  • 4 Port Converged SAN controller with 4GB Cache supporting Fiber Channel translates into better application response time and ability to support more virtualized environments.

this feature has been a part of new 3PAR file controller and many customer prefer 3PAR over MSA product

 

Some convincing fact are required

 

thx.

 

 

P.S. This thread has been moved from HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage to Disk arrays. - Hp Forum Moderator

3PAR file controller is more of a NAS solution.

MSA is targetted for SMB and 3PAR is for Midrange Enterprise customers

Are the MSA/P2000-line no longer dothill boxes but 3PAR instead?

Are there any performance benchmarks available for the MSA2040?

No, they aren't 3PAR and probably not yellow either.  ;-)

At Discover in June, discussed upcoming iScsi support with several HP engineers /reps.  Any idea when this will be available?
