HPE introduces pay-per-use flash storage options

The flexible storage option is more competitive than many cloud-based infrastructures

HPE has introduced a flexible payment model that it hopes will help boost the adoption of its flash storage arraysby allowing businesses to build their own all-flash data centres for a fraction of the cost.

The HPE 3PAR Flash Now initiative will enable businesses to buy all-flash technology for on-premise use to transform their data centres from just $0.03/GB per month, making it cheaper than public cloud solutions, HPE said.

"Capitalising on digital disruption requires that customers be able to flexibly consume new technologies," said Bill Philbin, vice president and general manager of storage at HPE. "Helping customers benefit from both technology and consumption flexibility is at the heart of HPE's innovation agenda."

HPE's initiative will see it integrate its all-flash HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage with other technologies and the support needed to improve performance, data protection, and application availability without having to wander outside of on-premise storage solutions.

The company explained it can also simplify the process of updating legacy apps without having to switch everything to the cloud, once again saving costs and making it easier to manage for organisations that are not yet ready to embrace a cloud-only environment.

To help businesses accelerate their move to HPE's 3PAR StoreServ Storage platform, the company also announced an update to the latest StoreFabric 32Gb (Gen 6) Fibre Channel portfolio, offering fully-automated orchestration from HPE 3PAR StoreServ flash storage arrays, reducing provisioning time by 90%.

HPE explained this move will help to reduce risk because it minimises the potential for human error or network outages to occur.
