HP Targets Consolidation

HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam -- HP (NYSE: HPQ - News; Nasdaq: HPQ - News) today announced new storage offerings to help enterprise customers consolidate, virtualize and secure their storage environments.
Introduced at the HP Asia Pacific StorageWorks Conference, the offerings include enhancements to the HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array, the first embedded switch from Cisco for HP BladeSystem, a new network-attached storage (NAS) gateway and advanced encryption for HP Data Protector Software.

Each product helps address the increased need for unifying and managing direct-attach, NAS and storage-area network (SAN) resources that accompany the significant growth in corporate data servers.

"In the past 10 years, businesses have experienced an exponential growth of data and the trend is expected to continue for years to come," said Phillip Sargeant, managing vice president, Storage Research, Gartner Dataquest. "To deal with this data proliferation, end users are increasingly relying on consolidation and virtualization to maintain the most cost-effective and manageable storage environments."
