EVA 4000 - Disk Upgrade

Our Client currently used EVA 4000 with 7TB and we in the middle for purpose VM technology for all existing Server.


The Question is:

  1. If we want to upgrade disk space, it's still have support for this model? Or need to upgrade model?
  2. If support, It's compatible with different server brand to do virtualization.

Thanks and Regards

You should be able to get additonal disks for the EVA 4000. Refer quick spec link http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12234_div/12234_div.HTML


Regarding the compatability of the other servers/virtualisations, you can verify it from the website : Single Point of Connectivity Knowledge for HP Storage Products - www.hp.com/storage/spock.


If you have plans to expand the storage to a large capacity, you may consider putting a new array like EVA P6300/6500.

Re: EVA 4000 - Disk Upgrade

Hello, I agree with previous post, you can add disks, but offer a quite limited and quite expensive. There are no now features implemented for EVA4000, no support for new OS - like RH6, ESXi5 etc... It might be better to buy brand new p6300 with cheaper disks, support, etc...
