As a result, traditional storage volumes are reduced by 50 percent or more and converted into thin provisioned volumes on the HP 3PAR array. This enables clients to reduce storage footprint and power consumption while also cutting storage administration time by as much as 90 percent.
As part of the guarantee, any participants in the programme who do not realize 50 percent or more reduction in storage capacity requirements will receive additional disk capacity and related software, as well as support related to the additional disk capacity and software from HP equal to the difference.
"Clients are looking to the next generation of storage arrays to curb data centre sprawl and reduce both capital and operating expenses", stated Tom Joyce, vice president, Marketing, Storage, HP. "The HP Get Thin Guarantee Programme allows clients to very quickly experience the significant difference that deploying highly virtualized storage can make in the enterprise."
The HP Get Thin Guarantee Programme is available to clients globally through HP or HP-authorized channel partners. Under the terms of the programme, qualifying participants may purchase any model of HP 3PAR Storage System with HP 3PAR Thin Conversion and HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software.
