HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage

Tier 1 all-flash array data storage that can scale midsize to the largest enterprises and service providers, for instant application provisioning and high levels of service – at a fraction of the cost.

Designed to Accelerate Business and Simplify IT

HPE 3PAR StoreServ was built to meet the extreme requirements of massively consolidated cloud service providers. Its remarkable speed—3M+ IOPS—and proven system architecture has been extended to transform mainstream midrange and enterprise deployments, with solutions from a few TBs up to more than 20PB scale.


Go All-flash: Affordable Speed for Any Demand

The HPE 3PAR StoreServ family of flash-optimised data storage systems modernises your data centre to instantly handle unpredictable workloads with 99.9999% data availability. Get rapid and automated provisioning, multi-tenant design, hardware-accelerated deduplication and sub-1ms latency—all within a single tier-1 storage architecture that starts small and scales big.

Now all-flash data storage can be yours for only pennies per usable gigabyte per month with HPE 3PAR Flash. Scale up and down—getting all that performance, scalability, simplicity and adaptability—at a fraction of the cost. That’s all-flash, no limits.


Why HPE 3PAR StoreServ is #1

HPE 3PAR StoreServ is the industry’s #1 midrange fibre channel storage array and the #2 all-flash array. It’s helped thousands of customers eliminate complex storage silos and modernise their storage infrastructure.From midrange to enterprise to all-flash across unified file and block workloads, you can start with a few terabytes in a single system and scale to over eighty petabytes in a four-system federation with a common OS, feature set and management.


HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 Storage

Looking to consolidate onto an enterprise-class flash array without compromising performance, scalability, data services, or resiliency? HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 Storage, with the lowest all-flash starting price, delivers the performance advantages of a purpose-built, flash-optimized architecture without compromising resiliency, data services, or data mobility. Unlike other purpose-built flash arrays, 3PAR StoreServ 8000 doesn’t require you to introduce an entirely new architecture to achieve flash-optimized performance. With unmatched versatility, performance, and density, HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8000 Storage has you covered. Options support true convergence of block & file protocols, application managed data protection and simplified fabric zoning along with SAN diagnostics.
