What is most valuable?

* Stability * Flexibility

How has it helped my organization?

The stability and flexibility are the greatest improvements to our organization.

What needs improvement?

I can't say at the moment. I'm happy with it right now. There is always room to improve.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

Before this we were just using a physical service and then moved to the virtual environment using VSA. Our partner recommended this solution. We took a deep look, analyzed, and decided we can go with… more»

What other advice do I have?

When deciding on a vendor to go with we look at * service * stability * performance. Explore it yourself. Talk to your colleagues, talk to the technicians, the experts.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We had a few options like Lenovo, Fugitsu. We went with HPE because it had the best price to performance ratio, and service as well. It's been a good experience, so far.

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.

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 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.

What do you think of HPE StoreVirtual?

How has it helped my organization?

Input/Output (I/O) has greatly improved. Easy updates without taking down storage and virtual machines (VMs). HA is now a real possibility which I could not fully achieve with normal NAS datastores.

What is most valuable?

Ease of carving out storage. The seamlessness behind the scenes of block management. I just let it do its thing. I don't worry too much about it.

What needs improvement?

Licensing is not exactly straightforward, but not the worst I have ever seen.
