Cool Flash Contest

What would you do with 60TB of raw flash storage?

Look, we know you’re being pulled in all directions. You need to deliver higher SLAs, scale your storage to support the massive growth of data (and your organization is expecting you to retain it all!), and ensure a bulletproof data protection strategy. And you’re probably being asked to do all this while reducing your storage costs.

Are you kept up at night wondering if your data will be where you left it in the morning?

The good news is that your dreams are about to get a whole lot sweeter because HPE and SanDisk® are going to bestow you with some peace of mind. This March we’re giving away HPE 3PAR StoreServ flash storage with SanDisk flash to two lucky winners who will elevate their organization with a highly performing, super scalable, extremely resilient flash storage array – one with 60TB of raw flash and the other with 38TB of raw flash. Don’t forget with 3PAR compaction technologies which include Thin Deduplication, Thin Clones and Zero Detect, your usable capacity can be up 180TB and 114TB respectively

Pretty cool, huh? And it gets even cooler, as you can submit your entry until the coolest date of the leap year: February 29th, 2016.
