Competitive comparisons

HP Competitor #1: EMC/Dell AX4

HP Competitive Advantage:

Increased throughput (bandwidth) with

industry-leading 8 Gb FC, 6 Gb SAS, or 10 GbE iSCSI host ports, fast processors, and 2 GB cache/controller. The AX series features only 4 Gb FC and 1 Gb iSCSI and offers no SAS model

Better storage utilization—the AX4 requires five dedicated disk drives (vault drives not available for user data) to operate, boot from Microsoft® Windows®, save configuration data, and de-stage cache Store substantially more (192 TB of total capacity) than the AX4 Array

Scores over the AX4 series that does not offer the 10 GbE iSCSI protocol. The protocol is offered in the CX400 series with very expensive optional modules

HP Competitor #2: IBM System Storage DS3500

Chassis
