Get the Short Take on HP’s Software-Defined Storage News

This is a busy time of year for the software-defined storage team with product announcements and prep for VMworld. As you may have seen yesterday from either the press release or Calvin’s blog we had a number of enhancements to talk about for our VSAs and Management tools.


Calvin’s been after me for a while to get some ShortTake’s done around our SDS products and so this announcement was the perfect opportunity for me to dive in to that task. I’ve completed 3 to start, that offer a high-level overview of our news coverage.


First, I’ve done a video going through our Software-Defined Storage point of view. I’m not going to spend time defining what SDS is…I’m sure you’ve heard that many times by now. What I cover here is why SDS is an important transition of deployment model, what we focus on in our development, and what products we deliver to address the full spectrum of needs within a software-defined data center.

The second video covers what’s new with our StoreVirtual VSA and StoreOnce VSA products. We have new features, broader hypervisor support, and enhanced capabilities that will appeal to all of our customers in SMB, Enterprise and Cloud environments.


What's new with HP VSAs



Lastly, and maybe most important, we have new capabilities within our free management plug-ins for both VMware vCenter and Microsoft Systems Center for StoreVirtual VSA and also we’ve expanded the support and capabilities within our VMware vCOps analytics tool for both 3PAR and StoreVirtual.


Managing Software-Defined Storage


If you’re one of the thousands of folks who will be attending VMworld in San Francisco this year come drop by the HP Storage for the Software-Defined Data Center booth #417. Just like the past 2 years, we have an additional HP booth on the main show floor that is dedicated to software-defined. Come over, grab a latte and join us for a 15-min session or mini hands-on lab – Topics include: StoreVirtual VSA, StoreOnce VSA, 3PAR VVOLs and Flash, and storage management and analytics. Get the full schedule of sessions here.
