HPE StoreVirtual Review

Data is stored in two different places, leveraging more security and availability


What is our primary use case?

Enterprise data and health care. All our data was in a P4500 StoreVirtual, now it is gradually moving to a 4 Node VSA.

How has it helped my organization?

Data is stored in two different places, leveraging more security and availability. Therefore, network problems are having less affect on iSCSI. We also plan to build a Metro Cluster using VSA.

What is most valuable?

  • Data replication (Network RAID 10) 
  • Simplicity of not having to buy FC or FCoE SAN. Instead, we buy servers with their own storage.

What needs improvement?

Product looks like it is in the end of development. HPE will be probably be merging with SimpliVity. I hope they will continue the product as we already have multiple HW servers besides HPE, and a software SDS means more flexibility for us.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.
