HPE brings enterprise-class storage to the masses


With prices starting at $7570, the HPE StoreVirtual 3200 storage system is within the budget of many small businesses, yet incorporates the company's enterprise storage technology.

The HPE StoreVirtual 3200 is a dual-controller array providing services including snapshots, thin provisioning and replication.

It provides equivalent performance and capacity as a two-node StoreVirtual 4000 system, but at 58% lower cost, according to the company.

The minimum configuration is 800GB of SSD and 1.2TB of hard disk storage.

StoreVirtual 3200 uses the same software-defined storage operating system as the company's other storage products, simplifying scale-up or scale-out expansion.

It also includes a new remote, cloud-based analytics capability featuring a built-in best practices engine and capacity planning tools (which sounds similar to that offered by Nimble Storage).

The company also announced the MSA 2042, a new configuration of an existing product with 800GB of SSD and 1.2TB of hard disk storage for $12,400, including all software.

The MSA 2042 yields up to 60% increase in database transactions per second and 80% faster application response times compared with the disk-only 2040 – and at 54% lower cost.

The SSDs can be used for either read cache acceleration or as a high-performance tier. The tiering engine optimises flash capacity without manual intervention.

Storage upgrades can be performed with data in place, thus avoiding data migration issues.
