HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 All-Flash Starter Kit Announced at $35,000

Recommended Posts

The HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 AFA is a clear shot at the flash startups that have been eating away at "big storage" with faster, less expensive arrays. With the $35k starting price, enterprises that have been considering flash but haven't bought yet for a variety of reasons, now have a low-cost, low-risk alternative.

I must say this is a fairly aggressive price strategy.

Btw. Thin Deduplication as you call it, is not really deduplication, its just their ASIC beeing able to do Zero Detection, and only save data (+meta data), and not write Zeroed storage. That gives a benefit via space-saving. It is not comparable to True Deduplication.

BUT HP has allready implemented deduplication on the HP 7450 AFA. And they have indicated that the Deduplication (again using the ASIC) will trickle down to legacy arrays (it might only support it on All Flash CPGs (A CPG is sort of like a pooled portion of storage with thousand of small 3GB Raids)). I expect it will to the 7200 AFA also.
