Another software storage offering

Raj Perumal Raj Perumal Profile: Raj Perumal

Hi folks, in the last few posts I’ve been focusing on virtualization and storage. This brings to mind another great option and that is the LeftHand VSA option from HP.

Recently HP acquired the company LeftHand which specializes in storage. One of their products is a software offering called the LeftHand VSA. Now with the HP acquisition it is referred to as the HP StorageWorks P4000 virtual appliance.

You can try it out from HP on a 30 day trial to get a feel for it and to see if it meets your needs. Some of the great features you get with it are the ability to turn local storage into SAN storage and leverage the advanced features of VMware that require SAN storage.

I encourage you to try out all these products and see what works best for you.
