HP Announces Hyper-converged Appliance

HP introduced a hyper-converged appliance that combines built-in disaster recovery with next-generation servers and hybrid cloud orchestration.

The new HP ConvergedSystem 250-HC StoreVirtual (CS 250) is designed to enable highly-available virtual server and storage infrastructure.It leverages HP’s x86 server and virtualization solutions combined with its HP StoreVirtual software-defined storage (SDS) technology. The CS 250 features enhanced VMware integration, supports hybrid-cloud solution architectures and is accompanied by new delivery services and channel programs.

“There is no one-size-fits-all solution for infrastructure,” said Manish Goel, senior vice president and general manager, HP Storage. “This is why HP continues to offer flexible and interoperable solutions based on HP StoreVirtual technology to help our customers lower costs independent of the hypervisors and hardware platforms they choose. Hyper-convergence is simply the next step in HP’s evolution of the software-defined data center.”
