When supported with the correct underlying storage platform, server virtualization delivers greater consolidation, administrative efficiency, business continuity and cost savings. As a result, server virtualization is not only transforming the data center, but also the businesses that those data centers fuel. However, these transformative results depend on enterprise class storage to deliver the performance, availability, and flexibility to keep up with the dynamic and consolidated nature of virtualized server environments.
HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage is the next generation of federated Tier 1 storage and was built from the ground up to exceed the economic and operational requirements of virtual data centers and cloud computing environments by providing the SAN performance, scalability, availability and simplified management that clients need. It does this through an innovative system architecture that offers storage federation, secure multi-tenancy, built-in thin processing capabilities, and autonomic management and storage tiering features that are unique in the industry.
When deployed together, VMware vSphere and HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage deliver a compelling virtual data center solution that increases overall resource utilization, provisioning agility, application availability, administrative efficiency, and reduces both capital and operating costs.
