  • Deployment of an all-flash data storage system addresses data processing with enhanced uptime performance
  • HPE 3PAR StoreServ provides capacity and scalability for workloads
Industry-leading, all-flash array delivers enhanced performance with purpose-built, flash-optimized architecture and enhanced QoS capabilities

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced the deployment of an all-flash data storage system for The Bank of East Asia, Limited (BEA) to accelerate its digital transformation, while addressing data processing and regulatory compliance needs with enhanced uptime performance.

BEA, a leading Hong Kong-based financial services group, was in search of a storage platform consolidation to keep pace with the growing demands of mass data processing applications, the solutions implemented by the bank for its core applications. BEA chose HPE 3PAR high-performance storage solutions because they could fine tune data storage to meet specific application needs that are critical as the bank consolidates its disk storage system in order to support multiple analytics applications with different performance and usage requirements

HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage – the industry’s leading all-flash array[1] – has modernized the bank’s massive data center by providing the capacity and scalability to handle all workloads effortlessly. Part of the only storage system in the industry to guarantee 99.9999% data availability[2], the HPE 3PAR AFA 8440 system chosen by BEA delivers the performance of a purpose-built, flash-optimized architecture without compromising resiliency, efficiency or data mobility.

“After a comprehensive review of all-flash storage arrays, we found HPE to be the best choice to support the continually evolving data processing applications that are so critical in the financial services industry,” said Eric Wong, Group CIO, The Bank of East Asia, Limited. “HPE 3PAR’s proven track record and quality of service performance capabilities enable BEA to attain a high level of data management and operational excellence, providing us with a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”

Among the many service enhancements afforded by its upgrade to HPE 3PAR, BEA is now able to assign processing priorities to various group-based data processing applications requiring high performance storage capabilities to deliver fast analytics.   

“Financial services companies need a storage infrastructure that can efficiently and securely manage mainstream, mission-critical applications and newer, cloud-native applications,” said Gabriel Leung, managing director, Hewlett Packard Enterprise Hong Kong. “HPE 3PAR will enable BEA to quickly scale in a cost-efficient manner, while continually delivering optimal performance that addresses all data processing requirements.”

HPE 3PAR StoreServ provides more than 3M IOPS and consistent sub-1ms latency. It enables users to transform their midrange and enterprise deployments with solutions that scale from a few TBs to more than 20 PB. Its rapid and automated provisioning, multi-tenant design, hardware-accelerated deduplication and compression, and sub-1ms latency is delivered in a tier-1 storage architecture.

Recently, HPE 3PAR has been integrated with HPE InfoSight, a cloud-based AI platform built on a unique approach to data collection and analysis, predicting and automating resolution to problems and continuously improving to make HPE storage smarter and more reliable. HPE InfoSight delivers HPE 3PAR customers a predictive analytics framework to anticipate problems and automatically resolve them across the infrastructure stack. Since releasing these capabilities, HPE InfoSight has predicted and auto-resolved 85% of more than 1,500 complex, priority cases across the HPE 3PAR installed base[3].
