HP Releases Virtual Storage Appliance Software

HP released StoreVirtual Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) software for its virtualization-ready HP ProLiant Generation 8 (Gen8) servers. The software, which is available at no additional cost, transforms HP ProLiant servers for software-defined storage.


Key benefits include:

  • Reduce costs of deploying resilient shared storage by up to 80 percent compared with traditional storage arrays.
  • Simplify deployment and improve flexibility with either VMware or Microsoft hypervisor environments without the need for dedicated storage expertise.
  • Enhance agility by scaling compute and storage in parallel as business needs change and application workloads grow.
  • Reduce risk by keeping data highly available through clustering and built-in disaster recovery including VMware Metro Storage Cluster support.

“To unlock the full benefits of server virtualization in the most space- or budget-constrained environments, organizations need a converged approach to resilient, shared storage that supports their data-intensive virtualized workloads,” said David Scott, senior vice president and general manager, Storage, HP. “HP is the only storage provider that delivers powerful, efficient servers combined with free software-defined storage to help our customers maximize server virtualization ROI, even with a limited budget.”
