HP創新技術提升虛擬化環境中的儲存效能

» English

香港,2012年7月11日 — HP今天宣佈創新方案為虛擬化及雲端環境優化儲存效能,讓客戶管理倍增的數據同時提高營運效率。

機構正苦於使用過時的儲存架構,而不能有效地管理難以預計的工作量、虛擬化環境及爆炸性的數據增長。舊式的儲存架構過於死板、價格昂貴及複雜,未能應付現今的需求。

HP於去年推出HP融合儲存(HP Converged Storage),建立在模組、標準化平台、向外擴展(scale-out)軟件及融合管理的新一代儲存架構,免除儲存與其他基礎架構之間的界限。這些産品專爲虛擬、雲端及大數據而設,讓客戶得以回應難以預測的需求、減低儲存預算,並能在更短的時間內交付應用程式予用戶。

今天於韓國首爾舉行的HP亞太區及日本儲存峰會2012 (HP APJ Storage Summit 2012) 所宣布推出的產品將提升HP融合儲存:

  • HP Get Virtual Guarantee計劃於VMware環境中提高伺服器虛擬化的投資回報
  • 爲 HP 3PAR P10000配置的全固態硬碟(solid state drive, SSD)提升應用程式效能,同時降低營運成本及IT複雜性
  • HP EVA Storage改善容量、效能及整體擁有成本
業界首個HP 3PAR計劃讓實體伺服器虛擬機器效能加倍

HP Get Virtual Guarantee計劃保證合資格的參加者,通過於現有實體伺服器上增加整體虛擬機器工作量一倍,從而提高至少兩倍虛擬伺服器的密度。 (1) 該計劃能減低客戶迅速發展VMware 虛擬環境的成本。

若虛擬伺服器密度未能提升兩倍,HP將為參加者提供所需的磁碟容量及相關的HP軟件及支援,藉以達到計劃的保證成果。(2)

HP以固態技術加快應用程式運作

HP 3PAR P10000 Storage的全SSD配置,能以包含在 HP 3PAR Adaptive Optimization Software的自動儲存分層(storage-tiering)功能,解決在舊環境中整合SSD所需之手動流程造成的管理挑戰。該解決方案將數據適時分配至正確的儲存層,並透過將以往人手管理整個儲存分層數據等勞動密集的工作自動化,達至系統性能最大化,從而減低數據中心管理成本。

全新的全SSD HP 3PAR P10000 Storage系統與現有的HP 3PAR P10000提供相同的領先業界(3)性能,新產品僅用小數量的驅動器(drives),進一步減低客戶的數據中心佔用空間(footprint)及能源成本。該全SSD系統支援每陣列高達512 個SSD – 增加四倍,因而降低客戶每秒每輸入/輸出操作的成本達70%, 以及減低每千瓦小時(kilowatt hour)成本超過80%,是效能驅動(performance-driven)應用程式的理想之選 。(4)

HP以HP 3PAR Storage解決方案擴展在HP ProLiant Gen8伺服器內的智能快取(smart-caching)功能成為融合解決方案。該協作快取(collaborative-caching)功能,能實時從HP 3PAR Storage陣列自主地複制數據至HP ProLiant Gen8伺服器的HP Smart Array SSD 快取中,從而提升效能並降低成本及延遲,為客戶提供更高的靈活性以回應服務水平的需求。

HP EVA Storage提升容量、效能及TCO

HP今天亦宣佈為其第五代EVA陣列推出新成員。HP P6000 EVA Storage包括全新P6350及P6550型號,為SSD及VMware vSphere® Storage APIs for Array Integration (VAAI)提供支援,藉以解決效能需求。EVA的增強功能讓客戶得以提高應用程式之效能及使用率,同時減低數據中心的佔用空間以及能源成本。

所有HP EVA P6000 Storage型號均配備全新的 HP Performance Advisor Software,較競爭對手的中階儲存解決方案更易於管理20%至30%。(5) 數據中心管理員現在可以單一檢視的儀表板,於數據傳送中斷發生之前偵測潛在的熱點或瓶頸。

全新的解決方案是HP融合基礎架構(HP Converged Infrastructure)產品組合的一部分。HP融合基礎架構透過整合伺服器、儲存、網絡、電源安全性、冷卻系統及設施成為可互操作資源的共享池,以分享共同的管理平台,從而加快提供IT服務及應用程式。

HP香港董事總經理陳珊珊表示:「成功的機構必須提供全天候的資訊存取,同時管理數據的急劇增長。HP儲存解決方案乃HP融合基礎架構的關鍵組件,讓客戶能夠提升效能及容量以滿足更大的需求,而毋需增加IT管理人員、能源或數據中心空間等成本。」

推出日期

HP Get Virtual Guarantee計劃現於全球透過HP及HP授權的渠道合作夥伴為客戶提供。參與是項計劃的合資格參加者需購置配備為自主負載平衡而設之 HP 3PAR Optimization Suite Software HP 3PAR System Reporter Software的HP 3PAR Storage System。客戶亦需運行VMware vSphere 4.1版本或更高版本。

配置全SSD的HP 3PAR P10000今天推出。

全新的EVA P6550及P6350型號具備兩倍快取,自6月起於全球推出,無需額外費用。SSD型號已於2月推出。HP Performance Advisor軟件目前已有售。此外,免費VAAI支援現已推出。

HP的主要歐洲,中東及非洲地區客戶活動 – HP Discover – 將於12月4日至6日在德國法蘭克福舉行。

(1) 客戶以VMware vSphere 4.1版本或更新版本配置HP 3PAR 系統,保證於實體伺服器上獲得較之前所裝載的儲存增加兩倍的虛擬機器密度。
