3PAR Adds Autonomic Automatic Storage Tiering and SSD Support
Becoming the first vendor of high-end storage array to provide regional storage company and spreading the data center of the cloud, 3PAR (www.3par.com) has launched the optimization software 3PAR storage adaptable autonomic sub-volume scaling with 3PAR InServ F-Class T-Class servers and storage.
According to its announcement on Monday, 3PAR also announced support for the unit MACH8IOPS STEC solid state, a new class of SSDs economical and efficient energy. The combination of 3PAR Adaptive Optimization, 3PAR SSDs, and the massively parallel, highly virtualized InServ Storage Server allows customers to meet the objectives 3PAR service level of approximately 30 percent lower cost than with Fibre Channel drives only .
“The technology of solid-state drive has not only unlocked new levels of performance within a smaller carbon footprint, but has created an opportunity for industry to rethink existing paradigms tiered storage,” said coach STEC Scott Stetzer vice president of marketing in a statement. “By combining cutting-edge adaptive optimization technology STEC Solid State Drive energy efficiency,” green “storage arrays, 3PAR has taken an innovative approach to performance and cost optimization for the company.”
3PAR autonomic, fine-grained approach to optimization level of services was designed to reduce the company and the cloud data center costs by delivering the right quality of service (QoS) for the right data at the right time – seamlessly and continuously. adaptive optimization is performed at the sub-volume, so InServ SSDs using arrays of these units require less premium to satisfy even the most demanding performance goals.
With 3PAR optimization software Adaptation InServ arrangements are able to achieve the desired levels of service by combining multiple levels of storage – using any combination of SSD, Fibre Channel and Nearline (enterprise SATA) – all in one volume for a lower total cost per gigabyte of only Fibre Channel configurations.
“The effectiveness of the combination of movement of fine-grained data at the sub-volume with the use of SSD and Nearline is expected to help us meet our service level goals within a smaller footprint and lower total cost “said Nicholas Ferguson, senior infrastructure architect for the investment management firm Nephila Capital (www.nephilacapital.com). “Furthermore, we calculated that the SSDs incorporate our results in the InServ array operational savings, as energy and cooling requirements with SSD are much lower than media tour.”
Earlier this year, added two new 3PAR 3PAR InForm software plug-ins for VMware (www.vmware.com), which provides improved online recovery of virtual machines. 3PAR Recovery Manager for vSphere new and management of 3PAR Plug-In for vCenter Server is available since January, providing virtual machine aware snapshots, rapid recovery in the Internet, and mapping of VM-to-storage.
