NEW DELHI: IT solutions provider HP has lowered the cost of all-flash storage to $1.50 per usable gigabyte(3) and introduced ultra-dense and scalable flash systems.


It announced a series of innovations for the HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage family, including 25 percent lower cost flash capacity, a new class of massively scalable flash arrays, and flash-optimized data services to accelerate IT-as-a-Service consolidation and hybrid IT initiatives.

The HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage 20000 enterprise flash family boosts performance with over 3.2 million IOPS at sub-millisecond latency and consumes 85% less space than traditional high-end arrays for massive footprint reduction. To support mission-critical workloads and enable greater agility, HP is unveiling flash-optimized software for end-to-end availability and non-disruptive workload balancing across the data center. These capabilities build on an already strong set of tier-1 data services unmatched by competitive all-flash arrays.

“Early flash adopters are seeing added benefits such as extreme savings and productivity enhancements that are leading to an all-flash strategy for more applications” said Barun Lala, Director, Storage, HP India. “HP 3PAR StoreServ is in a class of its own, with the affordability, scale and resiliency required for datacenter-wide flash adoption.”


Combined with HP flash optimization and hardware-accelerated data compaction that increases usable capacity by 75 percent, these new 3.84 terabyte drives bring down the cost of all-flash storage to $1.50 per usable gigabyte, approaching that of 10K RPM SAS hard disk drives. When customers apply space efficient snapshot features like those in 3PAR StoreServ to the multiple full data copies used for developers and data warehouses, they can reduce capacity needs by six times, in effect reducing cost per gigabyte to $0.25.
