New! Compare SDS and HCI solutions from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on WhatMatrix.com (StoreVirtual VSA, HPE HC380, HPE HC250)


HPE entered the SDS/HCI market with their acquisition of LeftHand Networks halfway through 2008.

LeftHand Networks, founded in 1999, is a noticeable name as the company pioneered iSCSI storage and eventually ventured into software-based SANs running on commodity servers back in 2007. The SDS solution was initially dubbed Virtual Server Array (VSA). With the acquisition the LeftHand name all but disappeared and the portfolio was re-branded to StoreVirtual. The LeftHand OS remained though (as well as its versioning system).

HPE properly re-launched LeftHand’s SDS proposition as StoreVirtual VSA in the final quarter of 2012. Starting at version 9.5, the products has since developed in stages to today’s 12.6 release. Along the way HPE combined the hardware agnostic software with its own server hardware and management software into an HPE owned hyper-converged solution stack. Late 2014 the Converged System 200-HC family was born. The 200-HC family is built upon HP Apollo technology that basically provides uniform 2U 4-node building blocks and is managed with HP OneView software. At the start of Q2 2016 the HPE HyperConverged family expanded with the HC380 when HPE combined its proven Proliant DL380 server hardware with the StoreVirtual VSA software and enhanced management software.
