HP updates server and storage options for SMEs

by Daniel Robinson

HP has expanded its portfolio aimed at small to midsize businesses (SMBs) with new hybrid flash storage and backup appliances, plus new ProLiant servers aimed at delivering the right level of performance at a budget price.

Announced today, the new storage products comprise the HP StoreEasy 1450, 1650 and 1850 file servers, the HP StoreOnce 2900 backup appliance, and the HP StoreVirtual 4335 Hybrid SAN Solution.

The refreshed StoreEasy products, which are based on HP Server Gen9 hardware, are designed to help customers to support expanding file storage needs with 56 percent greater overall capacity at 20 percent lower cost than before, according to the firm.

Available from March 30, the new models feature enhancements to HP's StoreEasy Dashboard control panel and disaster recovery options to reduce the risk of data loss. The entry level StoreEasy 1450 ships with 4TB of raw capacity with pricing starting at €5,090 (£3,665).

The entry-level HP StoreOnce 2900 backup appliance ships in a 2U chassis and enables customers to start small but expand up to 31.5TB of usable capacity if required. It will be available from late March for €23,490 (£16,894), while an expansion kit that adds 16TB of usable capacity costs €12,975 (£9,330).

However, smaller customers can choose to deploy HP's StoreOnce Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) as a virtual machine without any need to purchase additional hardware. This supports VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, or Linux KVM hypervisors, and a free version supporting up to 1TB of capacity will be available to download from March 23.

HP's all-new StoreVirtual 4335 hybrid flash array utilises the latest solid state drive (SSD) technology and Adaptive Optimisation tiering capabilities. Available immediately, this starts with a two-node bundle providing 12.4TB of usable capacity at a price of $59,000 (£39,963).

Meanwhile, HP's new ProLiant 10 and 100 Series Tower servers are right-sized to meet the computer requirements of smaller customers at an affordable price point, the firm said.

The HP Proliant ML10 v2 is described as an entry-level solution that's ideal for general-purpose applications, and will be available from mid-April with base pricing starting at $300 (£200). The more capable ProLiant ML110 Gen9 has more memory, disk drives and I/O expansion for growing business IT needs, including virtual workloads. It will be available from the start of April, with pricing starting at about $1,000 (£677).

1. Hewlett-Packard

HP's dollar share in the server market was 46.8 percent in the second quarter. That's a dominant position, but it was, nevertheless, a 6.9 percent year-over-year share decline, a drop almost as big as IBM's. Earlier this month, HP Server warned solution providers that it would ship no orders for six days between Aug. 1 and Aug. 6 as a result of a system cutover precipitated by an operational split into two companies effective Aug. 1. The break comes as HP begins operating as two separate, independent Fortune 50 companies in anticipation of a formal Nov. 1 split.
