The IT needs of modern start-ups and small to midsized businesses are often set against a backdrop of restrictive, sometimes entry-level budgets.
Whether it’s an ISV looking to accelerate their application or a growth business looking to modernise their IT, many SMBs are completely priced out of digital transformation, restricting their ability to innovate and scale up with the latest game-changing compute technologies.
As the undisputed global leader in servers and storage, Hewlett Packard Enterprise are now aiming to modernise the entry level space with a range of new shared storage solutions that deliver enterprise-grade capabilities to SMBs at under $10k (USD).
The HPE StoreVirtual 3200 offers an entry storage array from $6k that includes an easy on-ramp to software defined storage, while the HPE MSA 242 boasts hybrid flash for application acceleration. Both systems incorporate a variety of powerful data services including migration, tiered flash and embedded resiliency across multiple systems and sites.
We recently caught up with Till Stimberg, Director of Category Management & Product Marketing for Storage at HPE, to find out what the new solutions offer SMBs.
