Hey folks, HP and VMware are introducing a few new solutions that are product of 8 years of working together. I am focusing on HP’s Virtual SAN Appliance, it is the only appliance that is certified as VMware Ready.
To give organizations affordable, easy-to-deploy infrastructure virtualization, HP and VMware have combined VMware vSphere™ Essentials Plus with the HP P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance (VSA). The HP P4000 is the only software SAN certified as VMware Ready™. The new integrated product complements “always-on” IT from VMware for small and medium businesses (SMBs) with highly available storage from HP. It provides backup and recovery with shared storage capabilities to help SMBs start on the path to cloud-based IT services.
