Accelerate Fibre Channel Performance for HPE 3PAR All Flash Storage
HPE 3PAR 9000/20000 32Gb FC HBA delivers up to 2X performance compared to the 16Gb 4-port FC HBA in a smaller port footprint for mixed workloads and FC port consolidation.
Consolidate Multiple Legacy Arrays with Abundant Capacity
Combines your workloads with flexibility to support both block and file with HPE 3PAR File Persona. All HPE 3PAR platforms are built from the ground up to leverage a single, converged capacity for block volumes and file shares with lower TCO while offering uncompromising availability.
Get a robust 5-year warranty with 7-years of wear out on all SSDs, no caveats 
Delivers better business results with performance capable of over 2 million IOPs at sub millisecond latency and with 34 Gb/s in bandwidth.
The HPE 3PAR StoreServ 9000 Storage can scale to 18 PiB of usable all-flash capacity or >100 TiB raw, offering plenty of room for growth. Consolidate multiple midrange systems for more performance and more scale for your all flash data center.
Risk Mitigation for End-to-End Resiliency
Verifies data integrity with 3PAR Persistent Checksum to protect your data against silent corruption from the host to the storage array. Where 3PAR Persistent Checksum detects media or transmission errors, graceful error recovery takes place, avoiding impact on the host application.
Preserve your service levels with 3PAR Persistent Cache so you aren’t impacted by unplanned component failure, a key requirement for the virtual data center. HPE 3PAR can maintain high and predictable service levels even in the event of a cache or node failure by avoiding cache write-through mode.
Integrate HPE 3PAR and HPE StoreOnce providing an availability, replication, and backup service to augment traditional backup processes with HPE Recovery Manager. The performance of snapshots and replication combine with the protection of backup to enable fast and efficient application protection.
The HPE 3PAR StoreServ 9000 Storage achieves 99.9999% data availability  in your multisite federated environment with HPE Peer Persistence. Extended support to a third data center provides data protection in case of a local storage failure and a complete disaster recovery (DR) plan.
