The HP 3PAR Storage System is the next-generation Tier 1 storage designed to deliver the agility and efficiency demands of a virtual data center and cloud computing environments. The HP 3PAR family consists of the F-Class F200/F400 Systems and T-Class T400/T800 Systems as shown in Figure 1 and these systems are targeted for the enterprise market. All HP 3PAR models deliver simple yet powerful and dynamically tiered, multi-tenant storage arrays. They are supported by a powerful suite of software products for ease of management, thin provisioning, autonomic storage tiering and leading availability features such as remote replication and disaster recovery (DR).
Large SAP customers tend to consolidate their IT infrastructure, particularly their storage facilities, to achieve greater efficiency. HP 3PAR Storage System centralizes data storage on a number of high-disk storage arrays into a single high-performance, high-availability system that allows multiple SAP systems to share the same storage system. As a result, customers can apply common administration and high-availability processes to all their systems and achieve greater flexibility by dynamically assigning storage capacity according to business needs. The features of the HP 3PAR Storage System are suitable for SAP systems that rely on a robust, scalable, and efficient storage solution.
The HP 3PAR Storage System is a tightly clustered, multitenant utility storage subsystem allowing business requirements to start small, and then scale up. New applications and workloads can be added affordably and in a non-disruptive fashion all within a single, autonomically tiered array. At the heart of the HP 3PAR design is the full-mesh interconnect architecture that is cost effective, scalable, and resilient. This architecture is more robust than traditional “active-active” or asymmetric logical unit access (ALUA) controller architecture where each storage volume is only active on a single controller. The HP 3PAR full-mesh design delivers robust, load-balanced performance by having the storage volumes simultaneously active on every mesh controller on the system
