Next Generation P4300 / P4500

Hello

 

I am considering an HP P4300 or P4500 Starter SAN. I know that the G2s have been out for awhile and are based off of older  Proliant DL series servers. It looks like HP is refreshing their DL servers with the G8 line.

 

This leads to the question: Does anyone know if P4300 / P4500 "G3s" are in the pipeline?

 

None of the major resellers seem to list any G3 models or hints that they are coming soon: http://www.storagenetworks.com/hp_p4000.php

 

Thanks

Mark

Yes they are - apparently at this stage however they are a while off yet so dont let that hold you back.

Apparently the G8 refresh cycle will be a bit of a tick-tock arrangement with the common servers etc first (ML350, DL380, bl460c) followed by some of the less common gear in later cycles. Apparently the P4000 will be in the last cycle so no point in worrying about it at this stage.

Regards.

I saw this thread and wanted to continue the conversation.

 

It is now the middle of October.  Any news on an updated version (G3) of the P4500 SAN?  I am anxious to purchase one, but am wondering if I should wait until the G3 version becomes available.

First models of G3 in the very beginning of December, together with SAN/IQ v10
