HP’s new HP Get Virtual Guarantee Program helps its clients improve server virtualization return on investment by doubling physical server virtual machine performance when deploying HP 3PAR Storage in VMware environments.

The program promises qualified participants a minimum two-times increase in virtual server density by doubling the total virtual machine workload on existing physical servers. This program can reduce the costs of a customer’s rapidly growing VMware virtualization environment.

If a doubling in virtual server density is not achieved, HP will provide participants with the disk capacity and related HP software and support necessary to achieve the guaranteed program results.

A key component of HP Converged Infrastructure, HP 3PAR storage provides high storage-performance levels for the unpredictable workloads typically generated in virtual server environments, as well as in public, private, and hybrid cloud environments. HP 3PAR storage is integrated with VMware vStorage technologies, and combined with unique built-in features such as the HP 3PAR Gen4 ASIC, automatic load balancing, wide striping, and a Mesh-Active clustered architecture, enabling clients to maintain peak infrastructure performance levels as new virtual servers are brought online.

The HP Get Virtual Guarantee Program is available to clients globally now. To participate, qualified participants must purchase an HP 3PAR Storage System with HP 3PAR Optimization Suite Software for autonomic load balancing and HP 3PAR System Reporter Software. Clients also must be running VMware vSphere version 4.1 or higher.
