HP launches new data storage system
Technology giant HP has introduced a product called the converged storage architecture to suit any size company in T&T. The suite of solutions aims to reduce the level of waste many organisations incur, says Marcio Curvo, HP storage sales specialist for the Caribbean.
The operating systems, designed for virtualised, Cloud and big data retention environments, was unveiled at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad Thursday, by HP and local technology solutions provider Digi-Data. With the use of this system, said Curvo, companies will break through the complexities and inefficiencies that had plagued their operations, using a single architecture.
He said many companies waste as much as 70 per cent of their budget on capacity that is not actually meeting their storing needs, while administrators struggle to solve these challenges. “The major difference between our product is a specialised chip that will allow us to do a lot of things that cannot be done normally without the restrictions known with other brands.
It is way more efficient and that is our benchmark. We didn’t have to play any tricks to get the best performance. There is simplicity in the ease of use and the efficiency,” he said.
He told the T&T Guardian that HP will continue to re-invest in systems and services to ensure the company maintains a competitive edge among customers, while attracting new business. “T&T is very important for us. We have our Caribbean headquarters based in Puerto Rico, but our general manager is actually here very frequently. He is going to be here next week. It’s one of the islands he focuses a lot of time on.
“We continue to invest in our partners to make sure that they are trained. We have a parts depot here and we are doing more investments on the service side also,” he said. Curvo said the T&T market is very competitive for technology products and one thing he loved the local customers is their innovativeness.
“They have a lot of new ideas on ways to use technology and of course that attracts most of the vendors. Competition is good. There is great differentiation. We can compete with anybody anywhere,” he said.
