Hewlett Packard (HP) today introduced a high-end disk array for enterprise customers who require constant access to vital data and continued operations in the event of a disaster.
The latest addition to the XP family of enterprise arrays, the HP StorageWorks XP20000 Disk Array apparently brings both heterogeneous storage virtualization and thin provisioning to customers at a lower entry point.
Packaged as a “disaster-tolerant” design, the XP20000, which is available with a portfolio of software to cut costs and eliminate the complexities that come with data management, integrates a fully redundant hardware platform, unique data replication capabilities, and clustering solutions to create a business continuity solution that mitigates business risk by providing constant data availability.
“Enterprises want worry-free and easily manageable data centers that unfailingly run 24/7 despite any disaster, and the XP20000 helps them achieve that goal,” said Jim Wagstaff, vice-president and general manager, StorageWorks Division, Hewlett-Packard Asia Pacific and Japan.
“The XP20000 is another example of environmentally responsible technologies from HP that lower overall data center management costs for customers, while reducing business risk and increasing IT efficiencies.”
