Affordable SAN storage systems without limitation

You’re not limited by budget 

Cost effectively combine the #1 entry storage with the #1 x86 server by adding StoreVirtual or MSA to HPE ProLiant servers. Start out with low cost SAS or iSCSI connections then swap to Fibre Channel down the road. Or skip dedicated SAN appliances completely and implement StoreVirtual VSA technology.

You’re not limited by capacity

IT generalists and application administrators can easily setup and manage powerful data storage solutions from HPE—often with familiar tools from VMware and Microsoft. NAS solutions offer easy sharing of file data. SAN products can be set up in minutes.

You’re not limited by downtime

An entry-level budget doesn’t make downtime any more acceptable. With features like hardware and network RAID, stretch cluster support, snapshots, and remote replication, the HPE Entry Storage portfolio keeps you up and running.

You’re not limited by performance

Address the needs of your performance hungry applications with built-in flash to accelerate workloads from Day 1. Consolidate the data from most of your applications, including performance-intensive databases as well as productivity apps like Microsoft SQL and Exchange.
