Dawn is approaching for HP storage, and the sun will rise on two new low-end 3PAR storage arrays providing a future for legacy EVA array users. Currently there are three 3PAR models HP is focussing on: The high-end P10000 with its fourth generation ASIC speeding its operations; it was announced in August 2011 and stores up to 1 …
X1000, X3000 and x5000 become StoreEasy with the move to Windows Server 2012.
Xx000 (WSS 2008 R2) -> StoreEasy (WSS 2012)
P4000 G2 (3.5" Disks and SanIQ 10) -> StoreVirtual (2.5" Disks and SanIQ 10.x)
Someone bring me the head of hp Marketting!
"StoreVirtual, StoreEasy"...? Do hp Marketing bods have to rename every range every four minutes just to try and look like they're doing their jobs? What's wrong with maintaining the market presence like they had with the 3PAR brand and just giving them (stupid) numbers? Why not just call them all Storageworks, give them a series letter and a number (like P2000, P4000, P9000) to show their relevant position vis departmental,SMB , enterprise, etc, and leave it alone? TFI almost beer o'clock.
Re: Someone bring me the head of hp Marketting!
I want to know why they keep using the same numbers for printers
1100 , 8000 , 4000 , 4
All of those can be various lasers or inkjets and god knows what else.
There are other numbers you know HP!
as for the sorage array - wooo flashy cabs :)
