Azlan is first to ship ground-breaking HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 to UK channel

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Azlan, the enterprise networking division of Computer 2000, part of the Tech Data Group, has completed what is thought to be the first sale of HPs newly-launched 3PAR StoreServ 7000 advanced storage system.

The StoreServ 7200 Array has been purchased by a leading HP reseller, Strawberry Global Technology. Alex Brown, Managing Director of the company, said: We are very pleased to have taken our first order for the new 3PAR 7000 Array. The way the 7000 series is packaged and priced has made it an incredibly compelling offering for customers who need an efficient and scalable storage solution. We anticipate this new product launch will have a huge impact and significantly increase HPs position in this market.

The HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 was launched officially only last week. Azlan had previously hosted a special preview of the much-heralded system in London at the end of November. The event was over-subscribed and Azlan has since received a flood of enquiries.

Nigel Dunn, Director of Azlan UK and Ireland, expects this to the first of many orders that Azlan receives for the arrays. By bringing Fibre Channel technology and Tier 1 features within the reach of SMB customers for the first time, the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 breaks new ground. Its the first storage solution to really offer enterprise-class capabilities to mid-sized organisations. It has already attracted a lot of attention and we expect it to be a really popular choice amongst businesses looking for totally bullet-proof but affordable advanced storage solutions.

HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage extends the innovative HP 3PAR StoreServ product line to the mid-range, with industry leading performance and features at the price that customers need. It means users spend less time managing storage and get more features for less, and without sacrificing performance or future scalability. It also guarantees to double virtual machine density; with hardware-assisted thin storage, it is the only platform that guarantees a 50% reduction in capacity requirements. It meets SMB needs and with a common architecture, spans to enterprise-scale, making upgrades painless and affordable.

Used alongside HPs next-generation StoreEasy NAS platform, the StoreServ 7000 range delivers the ideal solution for small and mid-sized businesses looking to maximise their scalability and return on investment. Providing high availability for mid-sized environments with file capabilities for HP 3PAR arrays, StoreEasy appliances are optimised for Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Hyper-V and virtualised application environments.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER

The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

ORACLE COMMUNICATIONS WEBRTC SESSION CONTROLLER SOLUTION

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
