Intelligent Provisioning of StoreVirtual VSA with ProLiant Gen9 Servers

Earlier today, Kate Davis shared some news with you in her post, HP offers free software-defined storage with all Intel server puchases.  In summary, HP is providing a 1TB StoreVirtual VSA license for free with the purchase of Intel Xeon processor E5 v3-based servers, including servers from Dell, IBM, Lenovo and others. 

 

Further, with HP ProLiant Gen9 Servers, we are announcing Intelligent Provisioning - the VSA is integrated into Gen9 Intelligent Provisioning wizard making it really easy to deploy HP StoreVirtual VSA. I was given access to a Gen9 server and I have a short demo showing the Gen9 Intelligent Provisioning. 

 

 

 

StoreVirtual VSA software taps used storage and compute capacity to create a shared pool of storage for environments like VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V or Linux KVM.

Meet the new HP Storage D3000 Disk Enclosure

I had said I was done with HP Global Partner Conference blog posts and technical I am!  We are always updating products and working on new ones - and when we do an announcement like we did at GPC, we just can't talk about everything.  One of the things that quietly made it's way on to hp.com without any fanfare was our HP Storage D3000 Disk Enclosures. 

 

I asked Pushkala Atri to do a ShortTake to give an introduction to this new family of disk enclosures and today I want to share it with you.  Here's a brief introduction to the D3000 (from the data sheet):

 

The HP D3000 Disk Enclosures are ideal for your small application environments, remote offices, and departmental locations. The new 12 Gb SAS enclosures—large form factor (LFF) D3600 Disk Enclosure with 12 drive bays and small form factor (SFF) D3700 Disk Enclosure with 25 drive bays—offer flexible, modular solutions to simplify capacity expansion of HP ProLiant and BladeSystem server environments and MSA arrays (SFF only) to external storage without having to make the full move to SAN or NAS. This allows you to buy what is needed today and purchase additional capacity as your data storage needs grow.
