HP Unveils Storage Virtualisation Solutions

HP has launched new storage virtualization solutions, StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array 6400 and 8400 (EVA6400/8400) and the enhanced SAN Virtualization Services Platform 2.1 (SVSP 2.1), that can reduce costs and better leverage the existing technology investments.

According to the company the new products and solutions will enable organizations to address the short-term cost reductions required by today's challenging economy, while laying the groundwork to exit the downturn stronger and more competitive.

"Winning CIOs are focused on both strategic cost reductions and supporting long-term business growth," said Hemant Tiwari, Director, Enterprise Servers & Storage, Technology Solutions Group, HP India. "It's not about spending more: best-in-class IT organizations spend about half as much as the average company on technology as a percentage of revenue. Instead, they strategically spend and prioritize technology investments. HP offers an unprecedented range of solutions to help organizations emerge stronger when the economy recovers," he added.

According to HP, the new StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array 6400 and 8400 (EVA6400 and EVA8400) is a highly reliable, easy-to-use and cost-effective storage solution designed for enterprise customers. "This virtualized storage system is optimized for performance as well as capacity, and automatically grows or shrinks as applications demand. Integrated data protection software offerings provide real-time data replication, migration, and quick-restore services between multiple arrays without disrupting service," the company said in a press release.

"The current economic environment is dramatically changing how businesses operate. While difficult, these times do create opportunities for agile businesses to seize a stronger market position," said Prakash Krishnamoorthy, Country Manager, HP StorageWorks Division, HP India. "With virtualization innovations surrounding storage devices, networks and applications, HP is helping customers optimize performance and adapt quickly to change," he added.

According to HP, the enhanced SAN Virtualization Services Platform 2.1 (SVSP 2.1) is a network-based storage virtualization solution that increases available storage capacity. It also streamlines storage operations by reducing the time required for migration, replication, backup and bringing new applications into production. Solutions like the SVSP 2.1 allow customers to reduce storage acquisition costs by up to 50 percent, according to market research firm IDC.
