HP Launches 3PAR Storage Performance Guarantee

Promises to double the virtual server performance, by any means necessary

Today, HP has launched its “Get Virtual Guarantee” program that aims to improve server virtualisation return on investment when deploying HP 3PAR utility storage in VMware environments.

The company claims it can double the virtual server performance without adding to the physical or administrative footprint of the physical servers.

Under par

3PAR is a manufacturer of systems and software for data storage and information management. It was acquired by HP in 2010 following a bidding war with Dell that saw the price of the company shoot up from $1.15 billion to $2.35 billion.

HP calls its guarantee program an “industry first”, and promises qualified participants a minimum two times increase in virtual server density by doubling the total virtual machine workload on existing physical servers, reducing the costs.

3PAR utility storage delivers high storage-performance levels for the unpredictable workloads typically generated in virtual server environments, as well as in public, private and hybrid cloud environments. It is integrated with VMware vStorage technologies, and constitutes a key component of HP Converged Infrastructure.

And the best part about “Get Virtual Guarantee” is this: if the program does not result in a doubling of virtual server density, HP will provide participants with the disk capacity and related HP software and support necessary to achieve the guaranteed program results, free of charge.

“To manage exponential data growth, organisations need a storage architecture that can meet their requirements without increasing data centre size and maintenance expenses,” said Gary Green, vice president of global strategic alliances, VMware.

“HP’s Get Virtual Guarantee Program, leveraging high-performance HP 3PAR Storage and VMware cloud infrastructure, can help our customers maximize physical resource utilization and drive down costs,” he added.
