The world has changed
And storage must change with it

Explosive growth & new workloads

Virtualization & automation

Cloud & utility computing

Infrastructure & technology shifts

Customers tell us storage is:
Too complicated to manage Expensive & hard to scale Isolated & disconnected Inefficient & inflexible

Storage needs to be:
Simple Scalable Smart Self-Optimized

– The base volume space and the virtual copy space can grow independently without impacting each other (each space has it’s own allocation warning and limit). the base volume space can be derived from a RAID 1 CPG on FC disks and the virtual copy space from a RAID 5 CPG on Nearline disks. For example.HP 3PAR Virtual Copy – Snapshot at its best – Base volume and virtual copies can be mapped to different CPG’s This means that they can have different quality of service characteristics. 2 28 8 ©2010 HP Confidential . – Dynamic optimization can tune the base volume space and the virtual copy space independently.
