Unified storage system

Friday, 17 July, 2009



Hewlett-Packard has released StorageWorks X1000 and X3000 network storage systems that unify file and application storage to simplify storage infrastructures. With a single, unified system, businesses do not need to invest in separate storage systems for file and database data. The new network-attached storage solutions provide up to 35% more usable capacity through file deduplication while also increasing file serving performance by up to 30%.

The company has also released StorageWorks 2000i and 2000sa G2 with modular smart arrays which feature 2.5", small form factor drives that increase storage capacity by up to 33% per unit of rack space and reduce power requirements up to 50%.

At the same time, HP has unveiled the virtualisation bundle which allows SMBs to more easily deploy virtualisation by transforming existing server disk drives into highly available shared storage. The bundle allows customers to reduce costs up to 35% by eliminating the need for external storage to support application high availability. The bundle includes HP server, storage and networking technology as well as integrated virtualisation software from HP and VMware.
