HP launches new 3PAR systems for all-flash arrays

HP's new 3PAR systems are aimed at data centers looking to consolidate on all-flash storage arrays.


Hewlett-Packard on Monday rolled out a series of systems aimed at speeding up the data center transition to all-flash storage.

At its HP Discover conference, the company said that its HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage family of systems can cut the cost of all-flash storage to $1.50 per usable gigabyte under certain conditions.

The announcement comes as Pure Storage also launched new systems to accelerate all-flash storage deployments.

Here's the breakdown of HP moves.

  • HP introduced 3.84 terabyte all-flash drives designed to replace traditional drives in storage arrays.
  • HP launched the new 3PAR StoreServ 20000 family of systems, which scale to eight nodes. The systems are designed to consolidate legacy storage systems. The 3PAR StoreServ 20850 can deliver more than 75 GBps sustained throughput.
  • The company also unveiled the 3PAR StoreServ 20800, which scales to 15 petabytes of usable capacity.
  • HP updated availability and continuity applications including Persistent Checksum to monitor data integrity from an application to the storage array, Remote Copy for replication, and integration tools.

According to HP, the 3PAR StoreServ 20000 storage systems are available for order and ship in August. Prices start at $75,000. HP's latest 3PAR StoreServ software features will only be available for the StoreServ 20000 family of systems.
