"The product is coming to end-of-life in the next three years.""Hardware and disk failures are happening frequently.""I would like to have this solution easily integrate with VMware.""One of the areas that need improvement is the consolidated management platform, to manage all of the nodes from one place and the licensing around that.""The solution needs to ensure it is on par with the industry in terms of availability of features and various other options.""The initial setup could be simplified to make it easier for new users.""The management aspect of the solution needs to be improved in order to make the product stronger.""It is a costly solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For our organization, I believe the cost is 16,000 Euros for a three-year license. It costs a bit more to do the maintenance on our servers as well. It's also on an HP ProLiant server and an organization will need to do the maintenance there also. I believe the price for that is around 2000 Euros a year.""It costs less than $10,000 for one machine. If it costs more than 15% higher than this, then the customer may change to another solution."

Overview

HPE StoreVirtual storage ensures that organisations can optimise the benefits of server virtualisation with cost-effective high availability and disaster recovery. The iSCSI-based, scale-out storage platform is easy to manage and change – meeting ongoing business demands without creating IT bottlenecks or application downtime. Overcoming the cost and management limitations of traditional storage area networks (SANs), HPE StoreVirtual nodes use storage clustering to form a single pool of resources that enable organisations to buy only what they need today, scaling non-disruptively to meet requirements in the future.

Red Hat Gluster Storage (formerly known as Red Hat Storage Server) is a software-defined storage (SDS) platform designed to handle the requirements of traditional file storage—high-capacity tasks like backup and archival as well as high-performance tasks of analytics and virtualization. But unlike traditional storage systems, Red Hat Gluster Storage isn’t rigid and expensive. It easily scales across bare metal, virtual, container, and cloud deployments.
