Tech giant HP is giving a helping hand to its enterprise customers with the launch of products aimed at making it easier to manage their storage environments.

The additions to its portfolio, unveiled last week, include offerings to help enterprise customers consolidate, virtualise and secure their storage environments, as well as a new version of the HP-UX 11i operating system and entry-class servers.

Enhancements have been made to the vendor’s StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array, the first embedded switch from Cisco for its BladeSystem, a new network-attached storage (NAS) gateway, and advanced data encryption for HP Data Protector Software.

According to HP, each of these products helps to address the increased need for unifying and managing direct-attached storage (DAS), NAS and storage area network (SAN) resources that accompany the significant growth in corporate data centres.

“HP storage consolidation and virtualisation products and services enable customers to remain flexible, reduce complexity and lower the total cost of ownership in their IT environments,” said Ashraf Helmy, marketing manager for StorageWorks at HP Middle East.

HP also said the latest release of its Unix OS, HP-UX 11i v3, made virtualisation easier to deploy.
