Data is stored in two different places, leveraging more security and availability. Therefore, network problems are having less affect on iSCSI.Simplicity of not having to buy FC or FCoE SAN. Instead, we buy servers with their own storage.The seamlessness behind the scenes of block management.Thin provisioning lets us get the most value from the hard drives.I guess on the top of the list is certainly ease of use.StoreVirtual is that it is our software-defined solution and it's everywhere.he interface and the installation makes it easy as it's all in one piece of hardware and it doesn't need to be connected to anything else.The network RAID feature gives us maximum availability, since we cannot afford any downtime, even for a second.

Cons
Unified storage (all block, objects, and files) should be in a single storage pool with unified storage concepts, hence providing the user with whatever they want.

Product looks like it is in the end of development.Configuration of application integrated snapshots for VMware is convoluted and it did not work immediately.it would nice to have deduplication or compression, things that you have in some of the higher end products.f you're doing the 10Gb adapters, SFPs don't come with it, but it doesn't say that. It might say that somewhere else, but it's not clear.It would be nice if there were more parts available in Brazil and HPE could swap out faulty equipment quicker.The penalty for the availability is performance. So, you have to balance or choose between the availability and the performance.

Licensing is not exactly straightforward, but not the worst I have ever seen.If you buy a five-year license, not only does the technical support expire after five years, but you also lose the ability to change and expand the VSA, and the systems won't go down.One of the key features about it is that when you buy either a VSA license or a StoreVirtual appliance, all your software's included.The prices are OK, so we don't have much difficulty selling HPE in Brazil.
