InaCOMP and Hewlett Packard Enterprise offer an array of storage solutions that can handle more workloads, more simply with open, unified and software defined solutions for the modern data center. InaCOMP offers a wide array of HPE storage solutions that enable schools and businesses of all sizes to meet the demands of exponential data growth. We can assist with flash and hybrid arrays, mid-range and enterprise storage, entry level storage that can scale easily as your requirements grow, and software defined storage.
The HPE portfolio also includes solutions for availability, protection and retention of critical business data to minimize data loss risks and downtown recovery with aggressive SLA’s. Complete your Data Center with management outside the box. With HPE you get open, automated orchestration that allows IT to control storage, compute and networking resources across physical and virtual domains.
In the modern data center, all-flash arrays are becoming Tier-1 storage for mission critical data. These arrays offer plenty of benefits including supporting real time analytics which in turn create new decision making power and increase business advantages, simplified management, and a greening of the data center associated with reduced heat and physical footprint. Speeding up time to market for data-driven businesses and providing better, faster service to users ultimately creates a competitive advantage.
Thanks to the HPE 3PAR StoreServ family of all flash and converged flash arrays, an all flash data center is a reality. 3PAR arrays deliver 99.9999% uptime, with blazing fast speed and built-in protection for mission critical applications. Gartner predicts that by 2019, 20% of traditional high-end storage arrays will be replaced by dedicated solid state arrays. HPE 3PAR is the industry’s #1 midrange fibre channel storage array, helping customers modernize their storage infrastructure and eliminate complex storage silos. What are the key considerations your business should look at before investing in a flash storage array?
Performance – workloads require not only high performance in terms of IOPS, but also depend on predictable, low latency response times. It’s important to look for an architecture that is designed to meet service levels for a diverse range of applications. A flash optimized architecture ensures that every component in the system is utilized.
Resiliency and Scale – many new all flash arrays lack enterprise class data services like synchronous/asynchronous replication, live data migration, and transparent data center failover solutions. Look for an array that offers hardware and software redundancy, advanced high availability features, data integrity, and transparent failover solutions. If you are going to put your most important data and applications on an all flash array, you must have a way to access, manage and scale it 24/7,365 days a year.
Backup and Recovery – there can be significant differences in the cost and complexity of providing and managing data protection for all flash arrays. Storage arrays that integrate with tools the business already uses for controlling backup and recovery processes will be easier to manage.
Invest with confidence in the HPE 3PAR solutions. With HPE’s guarantee programs, your business will get the value they expect. With the 3PAR’s Get Thinner, you can reduce storage capacity requirements by 75% or HPE will provide up to 30TB of additional raw capacity. Use 3PAR Thin Conversion and Thin Deduplication Software to convert your traditional “fat” volumes to new “thin” volumes and experience 75% capacity savings. With Thin Technologies you purchase disk capacity only as needed, based on utilization. No more over-provisioning, guesswork, waste or up front allocations to accommodate future data growth.
HPE StoreEasy Storage is the #1 NAS product family under $15,000. The HP StoreEasy is a powerful breed of optimized, efficient, secure and highly available storage systems that allow you to focus on your business and not your file storage. As you work with a varying range of connected users and devices, you need to accommodate their demands to store and access growing volumes of files. What are the key StoreEasy solutions?

Hyper-convergence offers a solution to the challenges inherent in virtualized data centers and the growth of Big Data. What are the benefits?
Software focus – the software based nature of hyper-convergence provides the flexibility to meet the requirements of future without the need for a rip and replace of existing components.
Centralized Systems and Management – all components (compute, storage, backup etc.) are combined in a single shared resource pool with hypervisor technology. This simple, efficient design enables IT to manage widespread physical resources as if they were sitting next to one another.
Agility – part of being agile is being able to move workloads as needed. Since all resources are administered from a single console, workload migration is easy.
Low cost of entry – Hyper-converged systems have a low cost of entry and as new resources are required, it is easy to add nodes to the infrastructure.
Focus on VM’s – integrated data protection policies and control happen right at the VM level.
Shared Resources – businesses are able to deploy many kinds of applications in a single shared source pool that includes multiple kinds of storage – both solid state and spinning disk. This mix of storage enables systems to handle both random and sequential workloads and support even the most intensive workloads with more than enough IOPS.
Single Vendor Benefits – single vendor design, delivery and support are features of hyper-converged infrastructure. This approach provides economies of scale in procurement, operations and support.
