3PAR rolls out new software for its storage array
3PAR on Tuesday rolled out new software features that let customers guard against disasters, while preserving service level agreements. Synchronous Long Distance Remote Copy, Persistent Cache and RAID MP are designed to work with 3PAR’s InServ platform. 3PAR’s Remote Copy now supports Synchronous Long Distance replication, a multi-site disaster recovery method that spans extended distances. Persistent Cache is built into the 3PAR InForm operating system and allows organizations to handle both planned and unplanned downtime. It eliminates the performance penalties associated with ‘write-through’ mode by presering write caching in the event of a controller node failure by re-mirroring cache to other nodes. RAID-MP allows RAID-6 multi-parity capability for disk drive configurations above 1TB in capacity.
