Entry Level Storage
Simple, affordable storage solutions for small sites and remote offices that need to compete big.
Start Small and Grow
Affordable, flexible storage that scales to accommodate your intentional growth and adapts automatically when the unexpected happens to keep you up and running. Easy to manage with rich features including support for solid-state drives. Get direct attached storage to extend your servers, NAS storage appliances for file sharing, and flexible shared storage arrays for physical and virtual applications.
Affordable 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 the SAN completely with Virtual Storage Array (VSA) technology.
You’re Not Limited by Complexity
IT generalists and application administrators can easily set up and manage powerful data storage solutions from HPE – often with familiar tools from VMware and Microsoft. NAS servers 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-Level Storage portfolio keeps you up and running.
