HPE StoreVirtual Storage
Virtual storage solutions that simplify client and server virtualisation with a flexible and highly available scale-out platform.
The Most Flexible Storage for Virtualisation
Versatile and reliable, the HPE StoreVirtual family provides affordable storage for a virtualised infrastructure. Advanced shared storage technology provides the foundation for a composable data fabric, opening up new possibilities for simplified management and scalability across your infrastructure. Our systems are extremely flexible, support continuous data growth and include high-availability features that keep you up and running.
Flexible Deployment Options for Every Need
HPE StoreVirtual is a leader in software-defined storage and is the foundation of a composable data fabric. Optimized for virtualised VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V and Linux KVM environments, HPE StoreVirtual VSA transforms your server’s internal or direct-attached storage into a scalable, shared storage array, without dedicated storage. Software-defined storage controller software enables customers to run enterprise-class storage features on the same set of hardware that also runs the application workload.
HPE StoreVirtual 3200
HPE adds multi-dimensional scalability (scale-up and scale-out) and a new file gateway to its next-generation, affordable, entry-level StoreVirtual 3200 Storage. With simple management, migration tools and migration services, StoreVirtual 3200 makes the transition to next-gen, software-defined architecture easy.
Leveraging next-gen hardware and a proven 5-nines StoreVirtual OS, HPE StoreVirtual 3200 is not only cost effective for today, it enables you to grow in any direction, add hybrid flash when you are ready, and is part of a data fabric vision which extends to hyper converged infrastructure.
Advanced Data Services for Business Agility
HPE StoreVirtual is a software-defined storage platform that scales in any direction and provides data mobility across tiers, locations and between physical and virtual storage. It enables linear scaling of capacity and performance.
Common management and federated data services give you simplicity and flexibility in your virtual data centres. With the Centralised Management Console, you can manage hundreds of nodes in your environment with the same simplicity.
Snapshot and Remote Copy integration for virtualisation platforms and Windows applications make backup and recovery a snap. Plus, with proven 99.999 percent1 availability and unique stretch cluster capabilities, you can sustain multiple concurrent failures and still keep data online and accessible to applications.
How Our Customers Achieve More with StoreVirtual
To cope with new storage requirements, Sophia Conseil – an engineering services company based in France – used HPE StoreVirtual VSA to transform dedicated server hard drives into a virtualised array. By modernising their storage capabilities with a scalable and upgradable solution, they now have quicker access to data and are able to handle load increases – without change in habits for administrators.
