Features

Make Traditional Storage Planning Obsolete with Autonomic Provisioning Features

Instant, application-tailored volume provisioning with the HP 3PAR Operating System Software Suite rapid provisioning capability.
Simplified storage provisioning for clustered and virtual server environments is delivered through autonomic groups. Autonomic—It’s like breathing—you don’t even have to think about it. Simplify, automate, and expedite administration by handling storage provisioning, tiering, and management.
Quick and easy to get started with SmartStart’s one simple process for out of the box configuration for 7000 models.

Shrink Storage Footprint with Unmatched Storage Efficiency Delivered by HP 3PAR Thin Technologies

Provision storage capacity autonomically, just in time, and without active management. No reserved capacity required so purchase disk capacity only when needed. With fine-grained 16KB allocation units, HP 3PAR StoreServ offers fine-tuned provisioning.
Increase utilization rates, guaranteed, via volume ‘thinning’. With the HP 3PAR zero detect capability, you can convert inefficient “fat” volumes on legacy storage to thin volumes.
Keep storage lean and efficient by reclaiming unused space from deleted data. Prevent volumes from becoming inefficient over time with ongoing inline “thinning” of volumes at wire speed.

Deliver High and Predictable Service Levels with HP 3PAR OS’s Advanced Virtualization Capabilities

Keep service levels high and predictable even as the use of the system grows, or in the event of a component failure, with the HP 3PAR Operating System Software Suite which stripes data in a massively parallel and fine-grained fashion across all internal resources.
Maintain service levels in the event of a cache or controller node failure with Persistent Cache which preserves write caching through rapid re-mirroring of cache to other nodes in the cluster.
