1 HP 3PAR Takeaway Document Broaden your storage horizons with HP 3PAR STORAGE AND SAN

2 HP 3PAR Broaden your storage horizons Virtualisation, Cloud/utility computing and the consolidation of applications onto virtualised infrastructures are just some of the big IT drivers transforming the datacentre, yet putting pressure on legacy storage systems. HP 3PAR Storage Systems have been built from the ground up to handle these dynamic demands and represent the next generation of Tier 1 storage. These game changing storage solutions overcome the limitations of midrange and monolithic arrays and free IT decision makers from the scalability and availability compromises forced on them as budgets shrink. Instead HP 3PAR offers a highly virtualised, multi-tenant storage solution for resilient utility computing and the agility and efficiency that are critical to today s datacentre. A fundamental technology for future Cloud and Converged Infrastructure solutions and ideal for IT departments struggling to cope with storage in today s tough economy, HP 3PAR: Cuts storage TCO and CapEx by up to 50% Shrinks storage administration by 90% Reduces capacity, power, cooling and floorspace by up to 75% HP 3PAR means new, compelling storage choices for you and your customers. HP 3PAR Compelling Reasons to Buy Buy 50% Fewer Arrays HP 3PAR uses scale past 2 controllers, mixed transactional and peak loads alongside secure multitenancy to cut storage array sprawl in half. Reduce capacity, power, cooling and floorspace by up to 50% HP 3PAR combines powerful Gen3 ASIC processing with Thin Built-In to enable fat to thin conversions. Other lean storage technologies include HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning, Virtual Copy, Thin Reclamation and support for RAID 5/6. Reduce storage administration by 90% A key differentiator for HP 3PAR is its use of Autonomic Policy driven management that eliminates mundane management and drives new efficiencies. HP 3PAR s InForm Operating System cuts out manual planning and automates provisioning, whilst a Unified Management Console and extremely powerful Command Line Interface offer industry-leading ease-of-use. Optimise server virtualisation HP 3PAR is built for virtualised environments, exceptional I/O performance and wide-striping of data mitigate traditional storage constraints and enhance VMbased application performance. Thin provisioning and Thin Built-In reduce capacity requirements for any virtualisation platform, increasing server virtualisation ROI and reducing physical capacity needs by up to 75%. Security for public and private clouds HP 3PAR delivers secure multi-tenancy and mixed workload support to fuel enterprise-class virtual datacentres and Cloud computing environments. Virtual Private Array (VPA) technology provides secure segregation of user groups and applications. Deliver industry-leading performance HP 3PAR offers the only system to exceed 224,000 IOPS in a published SPC-1 Benchmark and the only modular array capable of delivering results simply, right out-of-the-box.

3 HP 3PAR Ecosystem HP 3PAR Architecture HP 3PAR Storage System Components Gen3 ASIC with Thin Built-In an efficient, silicon based detection mechanism, enables removal of allocated but unused space without impacting performance. Mesh-Active Controller technology allows each LUN to be active on every mesh controller in the system. Fine-grained virtualisation and wide striping divides each physical disk into 256-MB chunklets each of which can be dynamically reassigned to virtual volumes of different QoS levels. Persistent Cache eliminates performance impacts from unplanned components failures, key for maintaining. Controller nodes the building blocks of 3PAR Mesh Architecture. Full-mesh backplane high speed, full-mesh, passive system backplane that joins multiple controller nodes. Drive chassis switched HP 3PAR Application Managed Software HP 3PAR F-Class HP 3PAR T-Class architecture for advanced error isolation, industryleading density, redundant/ VMWare/Citrix server World s first cache The fastest, most hot-pluggable components, and desktop virtualisation. coherent, quad efficient single-system redundant fibre-channel controller architecture array available. paths to nodes. Microsoft/Oracle for scalable, efficient Delivers maximum databases. departmental and consolidation and Drive Magazines fully remote office performance tiered; magazines available Microsoft and consolidation headroom. for FC, nearline (SATA) and communications. solid state drives (SSDs). HP 3PAR Software InForm Operating System employs advanced internal virtualisation to improve administrative efficiency, system utilisation and performance. Management Console simplifies administration through a unified pointand-click interface. Thin Technologies Thin Provisioning cuts SAN costs, floor space and energy consumption by 75% Thin Conversion eliminates up to 75% of legacy capacity Thin Persistence reclaims space from deleted volumes to keep storage thin over time Data Protection & Disaster Recovery Full Copy Creates point-in-time clones with independent service level parameters Virtual Copy reservationless, non-duplicative, copy-on-write software that allows protection/sharing of data from any application Remote Copy allows users to protect and share data from any application more affordably. Resilience & Security Virtual Domains VM software that delivers secure, segregated access and robust storage to applications and groups Virtual Lock enables the secure retention of storage volumes. Autonomic Storage Tiering Adaptive Optimisation creates reliable, non-disruptive, autonomic tiered storage and enables users to meet service levels for up to 30% less Dynamic Optimisation and Policy Advisor nondisruptively distributes and redistributes application volumes across tiers. Autonomic Provisioning Autonomic Groups lets users create host, volume and domain groups to automate and expedite storage provisioning Rapid Provisioning eliminates array planning via instant, applicationtailored provisioning. Autonomic Management System Reporter simple to use, web-based capacity management tool Host Explorer automates host discovery and collection of detailed host configuration information.

4 HP 3PAR The Cloud & Converged Infrastructure sell Purpose built for virtualised environments, HP 3PAR is a building block for Cloud and offers the architecture, built-in thin hardware and advanced performance required to deliver and respond quickly in a virtual environment, whilst remaining always-on. HP has integrated 3PAR Utility Storage across the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio to simplify scalable Cloud computing. Together these solutions enable the optimisation of Cloud delivery with features like automated storage tiering to improve performance and thin storage offerings to eliminate over-provisioning. HP 3PAR with HP Converged Infrastructure enables consolidation of storage hardware and offers an effective response to explosive data growth, with converged block-and-file storage on a single storage array. This combination also simplifies data management with solutions built on converged storage, server and networking platforms providing unified management and a lower total cost of ownership. Utility-based storage for Cloud The move to Cloud is forcing IT organisations and service providers to rethink infrastructure design. With effective answers requiring the seamless integration of computing, storage and networking, as well as centralised management. In response to this need, users can automate and simplify the provisioning of multitenant storage for the Cloud, with HP 3PAR now being fully managed as part of HP CloudSystem, HP s complete, integrated system for building and delivering services across private, public and hybrid Cloud environments. Virtual domains facilitate multi-tenant deployments, making HP 3PAR an ideal platform for hosting, service and Cloud providers. This combination of 3PAR with HP CloudSystem enables reduced Cloud application deployment time, from days to minutes, and operational efficiency of storage management improved tenfold, whilst storage costs are cut by up to 50%. Move into the Cloud with 3cV 3cV brings together HP 3PAR Storage Server, HP BladeSystem c-class and VMware to create a complete utility computing offering. Delivering up to 50% savings on server, storage and operational costs alongside dramatically improved IT agility. 3cV offers: 50% reductions in server and storage CapEx 50% reductions in OpEx Security that comes from advanced virtualisation instead of hardware silos. An environmentally friendly alternative: - Up to 70% savings from VMware driven server consolidation - 50% consolidation savings driven by HP BladeSystem density - 30% power savings driven by HP Thermal Logic - Twice the capacity per floor tile than alternatives - Power and cool 75% less disk capacity.
