HP 3PAR P10000 Storage的全新全固態硬碟配置提升應用程式效能同時減低IT複雜性。

香港,2012年8月10日 — HP 今天宣佈推出HP 3PAR P10000 Storage的全固態硬碟(all-solid state drive, SSD)配置,以提升機構的應用程式效能,同時減低營運成本及IT複雜性。

採用大規模雲端及虛擬環境的機構正選擇以SSD來處理應用程式的性能差距及改善基礎架構的效率。然而,於舊式IT環境中整合SSD具挑戰性及昂貴。每個陣列的SSD數目限制能迫使客戶購買多個系統,但卻增加佔用空間、耗電量及散熱開支。

此外,管理人員亦經常需要人手移動儲存層間的數據以優化服務水平。這個極為費時的程序會增加數據中心的保養需求,繼而抵消SSD所提供的效能及成本效益。

HP 3PAR P10000 Storage的嶄新全SSD (all-SSD)配置以單層固態儲存解決這些問題,並同時提供與現有HP 3PAR P10000相同的業界領先(1) 效能。全SSD HP 3PAR系統支援每陣列高達512 個SSD,能減低設備成本、數據中心的空間及能源開支。客戶每秒每輸入/輸出操作的成本降低70%,每千瓦小時(kilowatt hour)的成本更削減超過80%,使全SSD HP 3PAR P10000 Storage成為效能驅動(performance-driven)應用程式的理想之選 。(2)

HP 3PAR P10000 系統亦容許客戶把SSD跟傳統的光纖通道硬碟(Fibre Channel drives)結合,並採用HP 3PAR Adaptive Optimization software 以達致自動儲存分層。Adaptive Optimization將數據適時分配至正確的儲存層,能減低數據中心的管理成本及令系統性能最大化。

Priceline的Unix 系統及儲存總監Ken Kirchoff表示:「在轉用固態的HP 3PAR Adaptive Optimization Software 前,我們的服務水平備受影響,並需要花大量時間被動地把數據在儲存層間移動。現在數據被自動分層,我們的整體擁有成本已顯著改善,而員工亦獲得更大的自由度,可專注於策略性增長的機會。」

伺服器至儲存的SSD無縫整合,提升效能並減低成本

唯有HP融合基礎架構(HP Converged Infrastructure)可跨伺服器及儲存,無縫整合SSD,讓客戶提升應用程式效能,同時降低營運的複雜性及成本。

HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8)伺服器的嶄新HP Smart Cache即將推出,其配備先進功能,能利用SSD作快取(caching)以加快工作量效能。解決方案將利用HP Smart Analytics技術,把經常存取的「熱門數據」智能地分配至高效能的SSD硬碟。該「智能快取」功能透過提供具工作量感知(workload-aware)智能以優化系統運作,協助客戶取得較上一代產品高六倍的交易工作量效能(3)及高50%的視訊串流(video-streaming)應用程式效能。(4)

此外,HP亦以HP 3PAR Storage解決方案擴展在HP ProLiant Gen8伺服器內的HP Smart Cache功能成為融合解決方案。該項協作快取功能將從HP 3PAR Storage陣列實時地自動複制數據至HP ProLiant Gen8伺服器的HP Smart Array SSD 快取中。該創新功能讓客戶能夠提升效能並降低成本及延遲,從而更靈活地回應服務水平的需求。

HP香港董事總經理陳珊珊表示:「SSD可為雲端及虛擬工作量提供關鍵效能,但傳統的基礎架構缺乏密集的數據分層管理,因而未能發揮SSD技術最大化的投資回報。在HP ProLiant伺服器及HP 3PAR系統陣列層之間智能地自動移動數據的能力,可全面實現SSD的效能及效率,讓客戶得以集中更多時間發展業務,而非後勤管理。」

推出日期

配備全SSD的HP 3PAR P10000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。
