Product Details

HPE 3PAR File Persona Software Suite is a licensed feature of the HPE 3PAR Operating System that enables a rich set of file protocols and core file data services on a 3PAR StoreServ Storage system - a midrange platform for database and virtualized workloads. This truly converged block, file, and object access storage is 2x easier to provision and 2x easier to monitor in 1/3 the datacenter space.

HPE 3PAR StoreServ with File Persona is an efficient storage engineered for the true convergence of block, file, and object access. Unlike other so called unified storage, truly converged block, file, and object access within HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage do not create inflexible capacity groups between block and file, or require you to run applications that are better served by block storage over file protocols. Instead, you get a solution that is both flash-optimized and built from the ground up to leverage a single, converged capacity for block and file workloads to deliver a 3x density advantage and lower total cost of storage with uncompromising availability. It is ideal for server workloads such as virtualization, databases, and applications over the Block Persona, and for client workloads such as home directory consolidation, group/corporate shares, and enterprise file sync and share over the File Persona.


HP 3PAR File Persona license provides:

  • Rich set of file protocols including SMB 3.0, 2.1, 2.0, and 1.0 plus NFSv4.0 and v3.0 to support a broad range of client operating systems.
  • Object Access API that enables programmatic data access via a REST API for custom cloud applications from virtually any device anywhere.
  • Broad set of file data services including user authentication, quota management, File Store snapshots, antivirus scanning, and backup/restore services.
  • Seamless integration with a broad range of IT infrastructure including Active Directory, Folder Redirection, Offline Files, Roaming User Profiles, DFS-Namespace, and Microsoft Management Console.

The File Persona takes advantage for file data a 3PAR block data services including Adaptive Flash Cache for performance acceleration of read intensive workloads, Thin Built-In Zero Detect and Thin Provisioning for data compaction, Adaptive Optimization and Dynamic Optimization for data optimization, Remote Copy for disaster recovery replication, and Data At Rest Encryption as an optional additional measure to prevent unauthorized data access.
