What it is?

HPE StoreVirtual Storage is the affordable, flexible storage solution that scales to accommodate growth and adapts automatically when the unexpected happens to keep you up and running. Versatile and reliable, the StoreVirtual family is easy to manage with rich features and is ideal for a virtualised infrastructure. The Storevirtual solution includes support for solid-state drives, whilst the advanced shared storage technology provides the foundation for a composable data fabric, opening up new possibilities for simplified management and scalability across your infrastructure.

How does it work?

HPE StoreVirtual is a leader in software-defined storage. Optimised 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 then enables you to run enterprise-class storage features on the same set of hardware that also runs the application workload.

HPE StoreVirtual 3000 Storage

The HPE StoreVirtual 3000 Storage series brings enterprise capabilities to businesses with entry level requirements with an advanced, multi-controller architecture designed with simplicity and flexibility in mind. Plus, with a highly virtualised backend and a single storage capacity pool, superior efficiency is easy to achieve.



What does this mean?

In essence, the affordable, granular, building-block approach of the HPE StoreVirtual 3000 Storage series lets you invest in a low-cost, entry-level unit that is ready to scale when you are, providing investment protection that helps you get off of the disposable technology treadmill.
