HPE has cashed in on its 3PAR brand as the enterprises are increasingly moving to all-flash storage arrays. The unique selling proposition of HPE’s 3Par arrays is they are dense enough, due to which it can support up to 24 petabytes of usable solid state drive capacity in a system.
It is 3PAR Adaptive Sparing, which assures SSDs can be used and 3PAR Express Layout, which enables concurrent access to drives as the advances have been driven by technologies.
The integration with native Docker integration via a plug-in to its 3PAR StoreServ storage family by HPE is also on the cards.
To support Oracle databases, SAP HANA and 3PAR File Persona, HPE also added advances to provide moving application snapshots faster via its Recovery Manager Central software.
The latest version of OneView is also revealed, which is a software defined data center engine and works across the company's servers, storage and converged infrastructure and gets a new dashboard for distributed infrastructure. In addition to this, it will also support the latest developer tools such as Docker, SaltStack and Chef.
