Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced new shared storage solutions that help small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), modernise their IT with hybrid flash and software-defined storage platforms that bring enterprise capabilities.
For years, SMB customers have been forced to subjugate business requirements due to the cost and complexity of enterprise storage, Hewlett Packard Enterprise India Country Head (Storage) Joybrata Mukherjee told reporters here.
While others have deployed flash for app acceleration, leveraged software-defined storage for cost savings, and are exploring hyper-convergence to accelerate time-to-value, smaller customers and others with entry budgets have been priced out of these game-changing technologies, he said.
HPE is bringing enterprise storage data services to the entry space with modern storage that eliminates technology dead ends, Mukherjee said.
The new HPE StoreVirtual 3200 provides a next generation, entry storage array with an easy on-ramp to software defined storage while the HPE MSA 2042 delivers hybrid flash for application acceleration, he said.
Both systems feature a rich set of data services from data migration, to flash tiering to embedded resiliency across systems and sites, Mukherjee said.
“No matter your size, when it comes to today’s digital transformation, ‘good enough’ storage is no longer good enough,” he said.
“By lowering the cost of flash and enabling a composable data fabric across storage systems and hyper-converged appliances, HPE is helping customers get off the disposable technology treadmill and onto storage they can grow with, not out of,” he said.
