HyperEfficient—Achieve 90% capacity savings

If you use HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure and its built-in VM-centric backup capability as outlined below, you will achieve 90% capacity savings across storage and backup combined relative to comparable traditional solutions.1,2

HyperProtected—Backups in under a minute

If you use HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure and its built-in backup capability, it will take less than one minute, on average, to complete a local backup or local restore of a 1 TB VM.3

HyperSimple—Full VM control in a matter of clicks

Using the HPE SimpliVity user interface, which is fully integrated with VMware® vCenter™, you only need three clicks to back up, restore, move, or clone a VM, all from a single console.4

HyperManageable—Quickly manage 1000s of VMs

Using the HPE SimpliVity user interface in a central location, in less than a minute on average, you will be able to create or update backup policies for thousands of VMs across dozens of sites.

HyperAvailable—No downtime or disruptions

You will be able to add or replace HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged systems without any downtime for local or remote sites, without any disruption to local or remote HPE SimpliVity backups, without any reconfiguration of HPE SimpliVity and backup policies for local or remote sites, and without the need to reenter any IP addresses in remote sites.

No gimmicks, no separate contracts, no additional steps

These guarantees are available for 90 days to all customers who purchase HPE SimpliVity 380 and are covered under the standard HPE SimpliVity 380 product warranty. The warranty is described in the HPE SimpliVity 380 QuickSpecs.

1. The savings or efficiency are based on the assumption that you configure a backup policy to take at least one HPE SimpliVity backup per day of every virtual machine on every HPE SimpliVity system in a given VMware® Datacenter with those backups retained for 30 days. If backups are performed more frequently and/or retained for a longer period, you will enjoy even greater efficiency. The data change rate is assumed to be up to 5% per day with up to 30% growth rate of the data over a duration of 30 contiguous days.

2. Ninety percent savings is the equivalent of 10 1 efficiency in the VMware Datacenter panel in the HPE SimpliVity tab within the VMware vSphere® Client. Efficiency is calculated across all HPE SimpliVity systems in a VMware Datacenter. It’s the ratio of storage capacity that would have been used on a comparable traditional storage solution to the physical storage that is actually used in the HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure. Comparable traditional solutions are storage systems that provide VM-level synchronous replication for storage and backup and do not include any deduplication or compression capability.

3. Time taken by applications to quiesce data is not included in the one minute because it is not in HPE SimpliVity infrastructure’s control.

4. Assumes that the user is starting from the view/tab in the interface that shows the VMs or backups that are being acted on. Changing default destinations are not counted in the three clicks.
