Your storage needs are growing. You need a SAN for virtualized servers, and you want your next investment to have a long term payoff.
The HP LeftHand P4000 SAN solutions are optimized for database and e-mail applications, as well as virtualized servers. With a pay-as-you-grow, all-inclusive pricing model, and intuitive storage management software, the HP LeftHand P4000 SANs are perfect for the budget-minded. Do high availability and disaster recovery seem out of your reach? The HP P4000 eliminates single points of failure across the SAN with an innovative approach to data availability, reducing risk without driving up costs. Unsure that current storage can meet your future needs? Built on a storage clustering architecture, the HP P4000 SAN allows you to scale capacity and performance linearly without incurring downtime or performance bottlenecks, or forcing expensive upgrades. Need creative ways to stretch your IT budget? Reservation less thin provisioning substantially increases your storage efficiency.
Storage clustering simplifies scalability
Storage clustering allows a customer to consolidate multiple storage nodes into pools of storage. All available capacity and performance is aggregated and available to every volume in the cluster. As storage needs increase the HP P4000 can scale performance and capacity on-line.
Network RAID delivers new level of availability
Network RAID stripes and mirrors multiple copies of data across a cluster of storage nodes, eliminating any single point of failure in the HP P4000 SAN. Applications have continuous data availability in the event of a power, network, disk, controller, or entire storage node failure.
Thin provisioning increases storage efficiency
Thin Provisioning allocates space only as data is actually written without requiring pre-allocation of storage. This raises the overall utilization and efficiency of the HP P4000 SANs, reduces costs, and ultimately increases the ROI.
Snapshots simplify data protection
Snapshots create thinly provisioned, instant point-in-time copies of data on a per-volume basis. Administrators can access the Snapshots to recover individual files or folders from the volume, or rollback an entire volume to a prior state.
