Post subject:  3PAR Storage Federation & Peer Motion Announced

HP announced their new V-class 3PAR storage systems, and new version of Inserv os. The part that stands out most to me is "Peer Motion" which allows us to seamlessly migrate LUNs from one system to another non-disruptively to the hosts using them. This will make migrating and/or scaling out to other 3PAR systems a breeze. This is a software feature so upgrading your existing T-class systems to the new version will include this functionality.

New HP Peer Motion software, available for HP LeftHand and HP 3PAR Storage Systems, delivers the industry’s first peer-to-peer storage federation capabilities that span from a virtual storage area network (SAN) software appliance to midrange and high-end storage systems. HP 3PAR and HP LeftHand Peer Motion software enables clients to:

Ensure constant productivity and redistribute workloads nondisruptively in response to an unpredictable environment with federated workload balancing.
Increase return on investment with federated Thin Provisioning, which transparently moves application data to systems with available capacity, reducing the need for future storage purchases.
Improve productivity by moving data from retiring arrays to new systems nondisruptively with federated asset management, which eliminates downtime or service interruption during storage asset refresh activities.
