HP Arrays: Storage innovation to help you manage more with less budget, time, and energy
Regardless of the size of your organization, you are likely to face daunting storage challenges . You not only require immediate access to exploding volumes of data, but government regulations and corporate governance are dictating what must be kept, for how long, and when you need to gain access to it . Adding that to todays economic situation, you need to cut your near-term capital and operating costs without sacrificing quality . Therefore, it is critical that you invest in a cost effective and highly reliable storage solution that can support your business now and well into the future . HP is transforming storage by reducing the boundaries that have traditionally separated storage from the rest of the infrastructure . These innovations build on hardware leadership from our ProLiant and BladeSystem engineering team along with a focus on storage software innovation and management that brings together server, storage, and networking to speed up application deployment . With HP, all of your storage needs are addressed from entry-level modular arrays to utility storage for cloud computing and everything in between . With our comprehensive portfolio you get storage designed for, and delivered on converged infrastructureserver, storage, and networking solutions integrated by design . The HP disk array portfolio includes:
HP P2000 G3 Modular Smart Arrays (MSA):

HP P9000 Disk Array Family: Enable bulletproof

storage for mission-critical converged infrastructure where constant access to data is requiredeven in the event of a disaster . The HP P9500 Disk Array is a large enterprise-class storage system designed for organizations that require the ultimate in performance and availability . Your business challenges extend beyond those met by disk storage systems . HP storage products and solutions help you tackle everything from basic business protection to complex data center transformation . These include everything from disk and tape backup solutions to scalable network attached storage (NAS) for file data, and software solutions to manage the entire infrastructure . Looking beyond storage, the HP Converged Infrastructure is a strategy and portfolio of products that enable your business to unleash the potential of your infrastructurebased on our breakthrough architectural frameworkto overcome IT sprawl to deliver outcomes that matter: Simplified management and implementation; optimized performance, utilization, and availability; and economies of open standards and connectivity . For the business, this means: Faster time-to-revenue, increased agility, lower risk, and lowering the cost of operations . No other vendor can deliver the full value of convergence . Why should you choose HP storage for your application and converged infrastructure deployments? Storage exists to support your critical business applications . HP is focused on application integrated storage to speed deployment, and simplify management . For example, integration with VMware and Microsoft management tools, as well as HP Systems Insight Manager, provides a single pane of glass for server and storage management . Server virtualization has dramatically reduced the cost of compute environments . Virtualized storage infrastructure can similarly improve utilization rates by 300 percent and reduce management costs by 50 percent .1 For example, scale-out SAN architectures can non-disruptively solve the performance, manageability, and capacity requirements faced in virtual servers deployments .

Enable low-cost, scalable, high-performance storage consolidation through storage area networks (SANs) to meet entry-level to mid-range requirements .
HP P4000 G2 SAN Solutions: Reduce costs with an

all-inclusive feature set that simplifies management in a virtual environment . Reduce risk and increase business agility with non-disruptive scalability of both capacity and performance .

overcome mid-range limitations, HP 3PAR F-Class Storage Systems offer quad controller-capable mid-range storage systems for resilient utility and cloud computing .

IDC white paper: The Business Value of Storage Virtualization

With data growth skyrocketing, IT departments are struggling to keep up . The focus of HP storage on capacity optimization enables you to do more with less . Technologies such as thin provisioning, deduplication, and data tiering enable you to reduce capacity requirements by 95 percent in some cases and cut the cost of future storage purchases by half .2 Simplification is a key to reducing your CAPEX and OPEX budget . HP is leveraging its $50 billion USD supply chain and leadership in industry-standard servers to lower the acquisition cost of new storage . A commitment to platform convergence uses HP Networking and server business and allows us to build unique capabilities into future

storage solutionsdisrupting the status quo in the storage marketplace while still providing bulletproof availability and investment protection . Storage matters now more than ever, and the demands on your storage and server infrastructure will only continue to grow . Over the next several pages, youll see how HP storage solutions have been designed to answer your unique needs and requirementsand promote outcomes that matter to your businessnow and into the future .

HP 3PAR Thin Persistence Software


Means that thin volumes on the HP 3PAR Storage System stay as lean and efficient as possible by leveraging the HP 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to non-disruptively reclaim unused space associated with deleted data.

What good are thin provisioning savings if they cant be preserved over time? HP 3PAR Thin Persistence Software means that thin volumes on the HP 3PAR Storage System stay as lean and efficient as possible by leveraging the HP 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to reclaim unused space associated with deleted datasimply, quickly, and non-disruptively . Writing and deleting large amounts of data can leave unused space within thin volumes . Even lots of small writes and deletions can eventually reduce the efficiency of thin volumes . This logical deletion of data without actually freeing up unused space creates a hidden utilization penalty that can really add up over time .

Most traditional copy solutions lack flexibility and require too great an investment in online capacity to be considered economical . Virtual Copy Software is a reservationless, non-duplicative, copy-on-write product that consumes capacity only for changed data, in fine-grained increments, and without ever duplicating changed data within a snapshot tree .
