for the virtual data center. HP 3PAR Persistent Ports allows nondisruptive upgrades to HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage systems without relying on multipathing software or failover initiation and now automatically fails over a front-end controller node port that experiences physical connection loss such as a cable or switch failure. Effortless resilience is delivered by HP 3PAR Peer Persistence software, with VMware vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (vMSC) certification. With Peer Persistence, you’ll also be able to federate storage across data centers, regardless of physical boundary constraints. Automated failover and failback between two sites or data centers is transparent to hosts, which keeps your VMware deployments seamlessly running even in the event of a disaster.A flash-optimized architecture enables optimal performance of flash-based SSDs while block-level storage tiering and mixed workload optimization enable high levels of performance for both spinning and non-spinning media, so you can put more applications on the same storage to lower total infrastructure cost. Unlike traditional arrays that require you to “scale up” to support growth or increase performance, the platform’s clustered, Mesh-Active design, with fine-grained virtualization and system-wide striping, delivers capacity and performance that scales even at extremely high capacity utilization levels.Flash-optimized software innovations like the HP 3PAR Adaptive Read and Write features enable a more granular approach than can be achieved with spinning media by matching host I/O size reads and writes to flash media to avoid unnecessary data reads and writes. This significantly reduces latency and enhances backend performance to meet the requirements of response-time sensitive applications like Oracle Database and Microsoft®Exchange. Reducing unnecessary writes also helps extend the life of flash-based media for better cost-efficiency. Additional innovations to the HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage platform deliver media endurance benefits that enable you to extend the life of your SSDs to get the most out of every dollar and I/O for increased storage return on investment (ROI). A high-performance architecture also allows you to get more out of your VMware vSphere deployment, where extensive use of virtual memory pages to disk can limit VM consolidation on your physical servers when paired with legacy storage, but not with HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage. In fact, HP stands behind your ability to double VM density on your physical servers when replacing legacy storage with HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage, including the 7000 series models, with the industry’s only Get Virtual Guarantee.4In the area of effortless efficiency, unlike bolt-on thin storage on legacy arrays, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage features hardware-enabled thin technologies that allow the system to run in a state of consistent high capacity utilization without performance tradeoffs. This allows you to save on the cost of a storage technology refresh and then increase storage ROI by keeping incremental purchases, administration, and operating costs low over time. In fact, the HP Get Thin
