Software Defined Storage
Eliminate complexity and free your infrastructure from the limitations of dedicated hardware.
A Software-Defined Data Fabric for Any Workload
Software-defined storage (SDS) is expanding rapidly as customers realize the simplification and cost savings from deploying storage as an application within industry standard servers. With tens of thousands of SDS deployments worldwide, HPE is enabling agility by embedding the same SDS software in many of the converged infrastructure solutions we offer — creating a composable data fabric.
Enabling Extreme Agility for Tomorrow
Imagine a single approach to availability, efficiency, scaling, and provisioning for every workload and form factor in the software-defined data center. With support for VMware vCenter, Microsoft Hyper-V and Linux KVM environments, SDS lets you create a pool of shared storage on industry-standard servers without needing dedicated arrays. StoreVirtual technology, coupled with modular hardware, enables a composable data fabric that spans hybrid flash, x86, hyperconverged, and composable infrastructure.
What’s New with StoreVirtual VSA?
StoreVirtual technology is now fully integrated with 3PAR StoreServ and StoreOnce systems. Through HPE Recovery Manager Central, StoreVirtual VSA is directly connected with all StoreOnce Backup solutions and offers bi-directional replication with 3PAR StoreServ systems.
Only HPE can provide customers with a single management tool that federates storage, providing integrated data protection and mobility for both software-defined and system-defined solutions.
Achieve More with StoreVirtual Technology
The City of Los Angeles Department of Buildings and Safety, BlueSky Systems and the University of Wolverhampton use HPE Hyper Converged solutions to reduce costs, create an IT platform built for growth and alleviate maintenance issues.
