Cons
In our country, Qatar, most of the industry isn't using too much HP. StoreVirtual doesn't move fast. It's not a popular product.It is a costly solution.The management aspect of the solution needs to be improved in order to make the product stronger.The initial setup could be simplified to make it easier for new users.The solution needs to ensure it is on par with the industry in terms of availability of features and various other options.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.I would like to have this solution easily integrate with VMware.Hardware and disk failures are happening frequently.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.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.

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.

ScaleIO is purposely designed to be an enterprise-grade scale-out software-defined storage solution. It applies the principles of server virtualization to standard x86 server flash and hybrid media, turning them into high performance, sharable, pools of storage. Whether your block storage needs are for traditional, modern or cloud workloads, ScaleIO has you covered.
