HPE StoreVirtual Review

It needs support for clustering different disk nodes. It offers basic storage services and easy clustering.


Valuable Features

The most valuable feature is the clustering. To be honest, this storage isn’t a particularly a good storage, but it offers basic storage services and easy clustering. I would say that if this storage were a school kid, many other storage solutions would bully it.

Room for Improvement

It needs support for clustering different disk nodes - nodes of different sizes.

Use of Solution

We've used it for seven months.

Deployment Issues

We have had no issues with the deployment.

Stability Issues

The failover is pretty slow, especially if you are using VMware storage.

Scalability Issues

It has scaled to our needs.

Customer Service and Technical Support

Previous Solutions

This was already in the company when I joined.

Initial Setup

It’s kind of a primitive storage with limited options, so if someone has already worked with a proper storage solution, this won’t cause any headaches during the implementation. It's an easy click-click process after you have downloaded the management tool.

Implementation Team

We did it in-house.

Other Advice

You shouldn't buy it, and get HP MSA or something similar.
