What is HPE StoreVirtual?

HPE StoreVirtual storage ensures that organisations can optimise the benefits of server virtualisation with cost-effective high availability and disaster recovery. The iSCSI-based, scale-out storage platform is easy to manage and change – meeting ongoing business demands without creating IT bottlenecks or application downtime. Overcoming the cost and management limitations of traditional storage area networks (SANs), HPE StoreVirtual nodes use storage clustering to form a single pool of resources that enable organisations to buy only what they need today, scaling non-disruptively to meet requirements in the future.

HPE StoreVirtual was previously known as HPE StoreVirtual, HPE VSA.

Reliable with helpful support and good replication
Pros and Cons
  • "A company can scale it easily."
  • "The GUI is a bit old-fashioned. It should be updated."

What is our primary use case?

We have several customers and we have StoreVirtual on several StoreVirtual deployments.

What is most valuable?

The replication is great. It has wonderful mirroring. 

The stability is quite notable. 

A company can scale it easily. The licensing just needs to be expanded. 

What needs improvement?

According to HPE, they say that they will stop making updates from maybe next year or something

The GUI is a bit old-fashioned. It should be updated. 

We need the solution to offer support for newer VMware. It only supports up to version 7. It doesn't cover version 8. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've worked on the solution for a while - more than four years - however, the last time I touched it was six months ago to do some updates.

Software Defined Storage (SDS)
November 2022
Find out what your peers are saying about Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Nutanix, Red Hat and others in Software Defined Storage (SDS). Updated: November 2022.
655,711 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is extremely stable. It's reliable. There are no bugs or glitches. I'd rate it 9.5 out of ten as it is very reliable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is easy to scale. It's only the license that needs to be upgraded.

How are customer service and support?

Technical support has been great. We are satisfied with the level of support we get. 

How would you rate customer service and support?


How was the initial setup?

The setup is okay, however, it comes with a moderate amount of difficulty. If you are new to the product, it is difficult. You do get used to the process over time and it gets easier. 

A company just needs one person to maintain the solution as it just runs. You don't need any support staff. It's very, very hands-off except when you do updates. The product is living its own life.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at StorMagic and VMware vSAN.

HPE StoreVirtual is more affordable. It's cheaper. In small deployments, it's cost-effective. That said, vSAN from VMware is built into the ESX host. Therefore, the vSAN is a little more complex. The difference between StoreVirtual and StorMagic has a dedicated host, however, in VMware, it's integrated into the operating system.

What other advice do I have?

We're customers of HPE. We are also partners.

I updated the solution six months ago.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Partner
