HP releases new hyper converged appliance

By

HP has released its new hyper converged appliance – ConvergedSystems 250-HC Store Virtual – which it claims is configurable within minutes for nearly half the price of competitive systems.

The new enterprise-grade solution is designed for virtual desktops and remote office productivity but also offers an easy path to hybrid cloud.   

Paul Shaw, general manager, HP Storage, Enterprise Group, HP South Pacific says, building on HP’s market leading x86 server and virtualisation solutions combined with its proven HP StoreVirtual software-defined storage (SDS) technology, the new CS 250 is business continuity-enabled from day one.

The CS 250 features enhanced VMware integration, supports hybrid-cloud solution architectures, and is accompanied by new delivery services and channel programs.

“There is no one-size-fits-all solution for infrastructure,” Shaw said.

“This is why HP continues to offer flexible and interoperable solutions based on HP StoreVirtual technology to help our customers’ lower costs independent of the hypervisors and hardware platforms they choose.

“Hyper-convergence is simply the next step in HP’s evolution of the software-defined data centre.”

The CS 250 arrives pre-configured for vSphere 5.5 or 6.0 and HP OneView InstantOn to enable customers to be production-ready with only 5 minutes of keyboard time and a total of 15 minutes deployment time, with daily management from VMware vCentre via the HP OneView for VMware vCenter plug-in -  the simple plug-in assures IT generalists have a unified management experience for the appliance using tools they already know.

“The storage market is rapidly evolving from traditional external storage with standalone networking and compute to converged solutions that collapse the stack,” said Stu Miniman, principal research contributor, Wikibon.

“HP StoreVirtual is the original software-defined storage, it has evolved to be well positioned across multiple use cases with flexibility spanning hyper-converged, VSA, Helion OpenStack and physical storage appliances.”
