HP’s New All-Flash 3PAR Is ‘All-Integrated’

Yes, naturally, it has more than enough speed and bandwidth for a broad range of workloads, but its greater significance is that it is another step on the path to convergence. Indeed, with this addition to its 3PAR line-up, HP is the only vendor that offers a genuine single product storage family that’s capable of spanning – and essentially integrating – midrange platforms, all-flash devices, and all the way on up to enterprise storage that can scale to multi-petabytes.
