HPE StoreVirtual Review

​It allows us to provide simple high availability SAN solutions. The stability isn’t as good as a traditional SAN.

Valuable Features

High Availability is the most valuable feature for us.

Improvements to My Organization

It allows us to provide simple High Availability SAN solutions that are scalable with both speed and storage by just adding extra nodes.

Room for Improvement

The stability isn’t as good as a traditional SAN as the nodes run an operating system and act like a storage server.

Use of Solution

We've been using it for five years.

Deployment Issues

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues

Things like a hard power off can cause OS corruption and booting issues. This isn’t too much of an issue because of the High Availability design.

Scalability Issues

We've had no issues with the scalability. We chose this because, in part, it's easily scalable.

Customer Service and Technical Support

8/10 - HP support are quite knowledgeable when there are internal software bugs.

Initial Setup

The initial setup is straightforward if you have SAN knowledge.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house. Just make sure you configure and plan your failover manager correctly and all best practices are followed on the welcome status page.

Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing

Their licensing is excellent as it's included in the package. Items such as site-to-site replication, High Availability, and clustering are all included at no additional cost.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at EMC. We chose this product because of the ease of scalability and ease of support.
