Why truly converged file-and-block storage is more obtainable than ever

By Stephen Bacon, Senior Manager, File and Object Storage Product Management and Marketing, HPE Storage

At Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we believe organizations need a modern, agile storage system that they can grow with – not out of – to keep pace with the evolving structured and unstructured data landscape. HPE 3PAR StoreServ is that system. It features a flash-optimized architecture, support for Tier-1 data services and truly converged block, file, and object access.

Now, we’re making it even easier to obtain and deploy truly converged block, file and object access with a new starter kit and nine new validated solutions.

Say hello to the new 3PAR StoreServ 8200 Converged File and Block Starter Kit

The new HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8200 Converged File and Block Starter Kit is a flash-ready getting started configuration tailored for common workloads. Versus the comparable EMC VNX Unified Storage platform, this new HPE 3PAR StoreServ Starter Kit is 2x easier to manage for reduced administration costs, supports 2x larger file systems and one agile capacity for block volumes and file shares for maximum efficiency, and is 40% more dense for reduced datacenter costs and complexity – all at a 26% lower price.


Transform with nine new validated converged file-and-block solutions

To help you transform to survive and thrive in the idea economy, we have also validated nine new 3PAR StoreServ converged file and block solutions. These newly validated solutions based on 3PAR StoreServ with File Persona enable workplace productivity. What's more, the solutions reduce administration and data risks and empower the data driven organization while reducing cost and complexity. The solutions feature:

  • Flexible client computing using Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) for persistent desktops with VMware Horizon
  • Content management and collaboration via Microsoft SharePoint with AvePoint DocAve for improved overall SharePoint infrastructure performance
  • Structured data optimization by retiring inactive data from production and legacy databases to adjacent file with HPE Structured Data Manager
  • Unstructured data governance through automated identification, categorization, and policy application with HPE Storage Optimizer and HPE ControlPoint
  • Compliant management and preservation of business records from creation to defensible deletion with HPE Records Manager
  • Protection of people and physical assets through video surveillance with Genetec Omnicast and Milestone XProtect
  • Real-time business analytics with scale-out SAP HANA Tailored Datacenter Infrastructure
