HP updates XP storage lineup 

The XP7 can also deliver 3 million IOPS, and HP says it is “the highest performing, full-featured, enterprise-class disk array, delivering three times the performance of the previous generation of XP Storage.”

HP claims, in fact, that one XP7 storage system can “deliver more IOPS than three EMC Symmetrix VMAX 40K storage arrays combined.”

“XP7 introduces the best of all worlds,” said Kyle Fitze, product director, HP Storage. “It delivers mission critical reliability, rich replication and disaster recovery services, and very fast performance that in many ways exceeds all-flash arrays. It’s the reason our customers use XP in some of the most demanding data centre environments around the world. It’s bullet-proof, disaster-proof storage that only HP can deliver.”

A single array can accommodate up to 4.5 PB of internal storage, although customers can scale up as needed.

Furthermore, the company says that by consolidating multiple disk arrays into a single storage unit, businesses can significantly reduce both floor space requirements and storage-related energy costs.

As for data protection, the product comes complete with new user authentication and access control functions, which increases resource segregation so that data can be managed more securely.

The release of the product will mark the 15-year anniversary of HP’s partnership with Hitachi. The Japanese company works with HP to produce the XP lineup.

The product carries a starting price of $462,000, and shipments will begin in mid-May.
