Shared storage deployed as software

Software-Defined Storage converges applications and storage on the same server to lower cost and improve compute and capacity utilization rates.

With 6 years of proven Software-Defined Storage leadership, HP’s portfolio includes StoreVirtual VSA and StoreOnce VSA with advanced features not available on less mature offerings. HP is expanding the software-defined universe and will have distributed more than 1 million VSAs by the end of 2014.
