Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The solution is very stable.
The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is hardware independent.
It appears to be very stable and very robust.
HPE StoreVirtual is very easy to use from the management console.
The initial setup is straightforward, not a complex procedure.
It allows compute and storage to operate separately, and has the ability to take SAN nodes out of production for maintenance with little effort and zero downtime.
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 management interface is the most valuable feature for us.
We are able to easily back up our data and send it to an offsite location.
It is very easy to use and very cost effective.
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.
The product is coming to end-of-life in the next three years.
Product looks like it is in the end of development.
They could improve by providing integration with HP.
An improvement would be if they reached out to education customers with other available products.

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.
For SMB and Enterprises who are looking for high performance primary storage for server virtualization, VDI, database and Big Data scenarios, or inexpensive secondary backup tier, our solution is StarWind Storage Appliance. It unifies commodity servers, disks and flash, and associated software into an easily scalable storage platform.
Additionally, the appliance features an optional gateway to Azure public cloud, which helps to implement an effective Disaster Recovery plan or meet regulatory requirements. StarWind SA scales up by adding individual disks and flash modules, or JBODs, while adding ready controller nodes allows scaling out.
StarWind SA targets those, who need high-performance primary storage or secondary storage for backup. In case there is a whole virtualization infrastructure to build from scratch, StarWind HCA will come in handy. Otherwise, if all the required hardware is present, StarWind Virtual SAN will be enough to build a high-performance virtualization setup.
