Virtual and cloud environments are unpredictable and demand the highest levels of agility AND efficiency. Legacy storage was not built for unpredictability. To fully benefit from virtual and cloud computing, organizations must move to modern converged storage designed for new requirements.

HP has expanded its Converged Storage portfolio with federated storage that eliminates the boundaries between systems. HP Peer Motion is the first federated storage to span from entry to high end systems. Available for both HP LeftHand and 3PAR storage, you can:

  • Shift workloads to the right resources within a metro-area
  • Boost utilization by logically pooling thin capacity
  • Refresh and maintain storage with zero application downtime

The HP P10000 3PAR Storage System (V-Class) has established the benchmark for tier 1 storage performance and efficiency. New software and hardware has substantially increased performance, efficiency, and scale. You can:

Industry leading OLTP performance for HP 3PAR Storage System

See the Storage Performance Council's SPC-1 benchmark report that confirms the HP 3PAR P10000 Model V800 as the fastest storage array on record to date.

Customer views

"Our clients want the benefits of cloud computing but they don't want the risk associated with unproven technologies. HP 3PAR Utility Storage is particularly strategic for our business as it allows our clients to reduce CAPEX expenditures on storage and enables us to deliver a fully managed, highly efficient storage solution globally with tier 1 QoS and security."
Mark Cravotta
Vice President, Worldwide Sales, Datapipe



"We needed storage infrastructure that keeps pace with massive and unpredictable growth by scaling 'on the fly', as well as supports the performance, availability, and reliability that our clients have come to expect. HP 3PAR delivered tier 1 features with the agility our business demands—at roughly half the cost and one-third the datacenter footprint of the legacy storage vendors that we evaluated—and without the need for specialized staff or consulting services. "
Nick Mehta
CEO, LiveOffice



"Early on we recognized that our legacy storage infrastructure was too rigid and expensive to keep up with our growth; HP converged storage offered a simple and elegant way for us to expand our storage environment cost effectively and without compromising performance. By consolidating on HP 3PAR Utility Storage, we've reduced the time that we spend administrating our disk arrays by at least 50% and doubled our capacity utilization. HP Converged Storage has delivered everything we asked for and more. "
Ken Kirchoff
Director, Unix Systems and Storage, Priceline.com
