PCMAN – In order to anticipate the next-generation servers and hybrid cloud, HP announced the new HP ConvergedSystem 250-HC StoreVirtual (CS 250). It is a hyper-converged tool, which offers virtual server and storage infrastructure that is configurable within minutes. The term “hyper-converged” means coming from many directions, showing how this solution is designed for virtual desktops and remote office that could be placed in different locations.
Best platform optimized for your virtualized workloads
The new CS 250 is business oriented, answering problems regarding flexible infrastructure solutions that allow businesses to quickly deploy and run new applications. It features enhanced VMware integration, supports hybrid-cloud solution, and accompanied by updated delivery services and channels programs.
Affordable with Built-In Disaster Protection
CS 250 was built with the latest HP, Intel and VMware technologies, powered by StoreVirtual, and fully integrated with hyper-converged solutions. Users can leverage their existing infrastructure and tailor the system with different choices of 96 processing cores, SSD and SAS disk drives, and 2TB memory per 4-node appliance. This has given double benefits for the users compare to the previous generations.
StoreVirtual Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) licenses are included within the appliance, and it leverages the system’s ability to replicate data to any other HP StoreVirtual-based solution. This means the users can adapt their existing infrastructure as a replication target at no cost.
New Solutions and Services
CS 250 is built with the new HP Helion CloudSystem 9.0, an open, enterprise-grade solution that provides easy alternatives to the hybrid cloud. HP also introduced a new Software-Defined Storage Design and Integration services to accommodate customers with highly scalable, elastic cloud storage services. On top of that, the service allows customers to modernize their storage infrastructure using software-defined storage technologies. It provides customers with detailed configuration and implementation guidance designed to their specific needs in order to convert time to value.
