HPE SimpliVity 380
The HPE SimpliVity 380 integrates the SimpliVity OmniStack software that Hewlett Packard Enterprise acquired earlier this year to unify compute, storage services and networking in a single HPE ProLiant DL380. Available since April, the HPE SimpliVity 380 offers a full suite of traditional IT functions including WAN optimization, unified global VM-centric management, data protection, cloud integration, built-in backup, disaster recovery, caching and scale-out capabilities. In-line deduplication, compression and optimization are applied to all data at inception.
Available in three versions, the HPE SimpliVity 380 can be clustered to form a shared resource pool with high availability, mobility, and performance and capacity scaling. The HPE SimpliVity HyperGuarantee promises customers 90 percent capacity savings across storage and backup combined, relative to comparable traditional solutions.
