Why HPE StoreVirtual?
HPE StoreVirtual storage ensures that organisations can optimise the benefits of server virtualisation with cost-effective high availability and disaster recovery. The iSCSI-based, scale-out storage platform is easy to manage and change – meeting ongoing business demands without creating IT bottlenecks or application downtime. Overcoming the cost and management limitations of traditional storage area networks (SANs), HPE StoreVirtual nodes use storage clustering to form a single pool of resources that enable organisations to buy only what they need today, scaling non-disruptively to meet requirements in the future.
- Cost and simplicity: start small and grow in line with business demands
HPE StoreVirtual storage means that organisations can start with a small cluster and scale to hundreds of terabytes without disruption to the business – all managed from an intuitive, online user interface.
- Scalable performance: Avoid downtime and complexity
The resources of all HPE StoreVirtual nodes in the cluster are aggregated, meaning that capacity and performance of the entire cluster increases each time a new storage node is added. And, because this process is done online, downtime and complex co-ordination with server, application and network teams is avoided.
- High availability: Effective protection against system failure
HPE StoreVirtual provides levels of data availability beyond what traditional dual controller storage and hardware RAID can provide. Protection is assured against multiple system failures, including power and cooling failure, keeping data online and accessible at all times.
