3PAR announced InServ Storage Server support for HP Serviceguard. Serviceguard is a high-availability software platform from HP that provides automatic failover capabilities for clustered HP-UX servers. HP Serviceguard customers can deploy 3PAR Utility Storage, a massively scalable storage platform to complement their mission-critical HP-UX environments.
3PAR InServ Storage Server support for HP Serviceguard is available for HP Integrity (Itanium) and HP 9000 (PA-RISC) server platforms, including HP Superdome.
"We rely on HP Serviceguard with HP-UX and 3PAR to support our mission-critical Oracle infrastructure, which is central to our On-Demand Enterprise and Ariba Supplier Network offerings," said Dan Grillo, director of hosting at Ariba. "With 3PAR, we no longer have to trade-off simplicity and efficiency in order to get scalability and high availability in our storage."
3PAR reports that customers deploy the highly available HP Serviceguard to avoid lost revenue, dissatisfaction and even damage to reputation. Such deployments often include costly monolithic storage systems in an attempt to provide high levels of storage performance, scalability and high availability. On the other hand, if customers consider more affordable modular storage alternatives, they face increased downtime risk to application service levels, according to 3PAR. 3PAR Utility Storage attempts to resolve this monolithic-versus-modular dilemma with an always-on, massively scalable, clustered architecture that aims to offer high and predictable levels of performance, even under failure conditions.
"3PAR's announcement is good news for customers who require the safety of high availability, but also want the simplicity and efficiency of utility storage," said Yankee Group senior analyst Sal Capizzi. "The support of HP Serviceguard by 3PAR Utility Storage is a very important step in the convergence of two extremely important technologies and delivers the best of both worlds."
"3PAR eliminates the customary compromises customers must make between traditional modular or monolithic storage," said David Scott, 3PAR president and CEO. "For customers who require high availability on HP platforms, 3PAR Utility Storage opens the door to even higher levels of storage simplicity."
