Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) announced enhancements to its entry storage portfolio to help customers with limited budgets harness content and accelerate applications. New HPE MSA Storage options enable the most affordable dual-controller hybrid flash array from a major vendor while the new HPE StoreEasy 1650 Expanded transforms the economics of storing large volumes of digital information.
For today’s small and midsize businesses (SMBs) and venture-backed companies, the opportunity to innovate is greater than ever. However, as these companies look to bring ideas to value, challenges associated with data management are becoming increasingly more common. With unstructured data doubling every 18 to 24 months and continual pressure to accelerate business decisions, the ability to quickly and efficiently harness the value of information is critical for success.
“In today’s economy, agility and speed are critical to stay competitive, regardless of business size,” said Joybrata Mukherjee, Country Head, Storage, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, India.“That’s why Hewlett Packard Enterprise is bringing enterprise storage scale and performance within reach of customers who have even the most constrained budgets.”
Hybrid flash performance for 45 percent less with the MSA 1040(5)
To accelerate business responsiveness and enable faster decision making, HPE has enhanced its HPE MSA Storage family to include solid state drive (SSD) support for the HPE MSA 1040. This expanded support for SSDs results in new hybrid flash configurations that deliver performance and latency-optimized storage starting at under US $8,500(6), which makes the hybrid flash-enabled HPE MSA product family affordable for a wider range of new customers.
Application demands are driving the need for shared storage with greater efficiency and performance at a cost that can still fit into constrained IT budgets. With added support for SSDs and advance storage virtualization features previously available only with the flagship MSA 2040, both the MSA 1040 and 2040can now take advantage of more cost-efficient flash media. These new SSDs deliver hybrid flash acceleration at 30 percent lower price for the same capacity point, putting higher performance and latency reduction within reach of more businesses.
