Have you ever found yourself waiting for a letter in your mailbox and for days it doesn't come - and then it finally does.  Well, today the letter arrived and I happy to tell you about it.  HP LeftHand is now on the VMware hardware compatiability list (HCL) as the only iSCSI vSphere Metro Cluster Storage certified solution. 

 

VMware HCL vMSC.pngI had recently talked about this pending certification with our HP LeftHand and VMware expert Brad Katz and my fellow vExpert Eric Siebert.  That blog post was titled VMware vSphere Metro Cluster Storage certification and if you're not familiar with vMSC, I highly recommend that you check out that blog post with a podcast. 

 

Here are a couple of other things to help you understand this:

Glad to see it certified by VMware now.  We've been using this design for our VMware clusters between two campus datacenters for over four years, and it's worked beautifully.

@adamtlittle - we're glad too and always great to hear from a customer using it with great success.  Thanks!
