Features

Simplified and Converged Management Across Cloud Storage

IT professionals juggling many responsibilities require simplified and comprehensive insights and management into their cloud environment. Easily manage volumes and snapshots to orchestrate your storage with HPE Storage integration into OpenStack's latest Manila (file) and Cinder (block) drivers.

For fluctuating cloud workloads, HPE 3PAR StoreServ provides unified management of both file and block storage on a dedicated, flash-optimized physical storage appliance.

Leverage your existing x86-based hardware for fully featured block, cloud storage with HPE StoreVirtual VSA. As a software-defined storage (SDS) solution you benefit from agile, scalable and high available storage.

Enterprise-ready Cloud Storage Infrastructure

Build an attainable and successful cloud strategy to operate in today's "always-connected" and "always-on" environment with HPE Storage's industry-leading scale and density to satisfy cloud growth requirements in less physical space.

Improve the use of your capacity with snapshot and volume management, while taking advantage of admin/user defined templates for adaptive volume provisioning with HPE 3PAR StoreServ and HPE StoreVirtual VSA.

Deep linking between Horizon OpenStack user interface and HPE 3PAR's Management Console (SSMC) makes it easier to gather information on the software licenses, helps in diagnostics, deploy and gain management visibility into specific volumes and storage details.

You can also easily import or manage volumes originally created outside of your OpenStack environment.

Resilient, Flash Storage in Mind

Maximize your cloud storage performance through HPE 3PAR StoreServ Adaptive Flash Cache feature that harnesses SSD capacity as a virtual extension of DRAM cache to reduce latency for cloud based online transactions processing (OLTP) and other read-intensive Web workloads.

Achieve greater cost efficiency with uncompromising performance and agility with HPE 3PAR StoreServ converged controllers and storage management. Easily adjust volume types from iSCSI to Fibre Channel or vice versa, without taking the OpenStack cloud offline.
