About the HPE Hyper-Converged 250
For customers who are looking for a simple, agileand highly available virtualization system, the new Hyper Converged 250 family eliminates complex solution stacks. It combinesa powerful Apollo server platform and mature StoreVirtual data services from Hewlett Packard Enterprise into one building block to simplify the delivery of virtualized servers and desktops. The Hyper Converged 250 family now supports VMware and Microsoft virtualization technologies, and continues to provide a turn-key virtualization solution for medium-sized businesses, enterprises, and IaaS providers.
Designed from the ground up for the software-defined data center, theHC 250 enables a standardized, appliance approach to virtual server deployment, regardless of whether it is used as a primary virtualization platformin medium-sized businesses or as a dedicated resource pool for specific applications in the enterprise. Unlike other hyper-converged systems on the market, the HC 250 can be customized and ready for virtualized workloads in a few simple clicks.
All hardware and software components are pre-installed and pre-integrated by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and quick customization using the OneView InstantOn software enables faster time to value that is unique to the HC 250 family. After the initial installation, IT administrators manage their virtualized environment within VMware vCenter Server and OneView for vCenter, or with Microsoft System Center user interfaces and HPE OneView for System Center management integrations.
StoreVirtual technology that is built into the HC 250 matches the high-availability features of the hypervisor (VMware Fault Tolerance, VMware High Availability, or Windows Failover Cluster) from a storage perspective to provide enterprise-level availability for virtualized applications and services. HC 250 provides superior high-availability beyond a single system, rack and even data center. As the storage components are vSphere Metro Storage Cluster (vMSC) certified, the HC 250 is the a great fit for stretched VMware vSphere clusters.
