HPE ProLiant DL325 Gen10 Servers with VMware vSAN

Overview

A digital transformation is taking place, fueled by Big Data, mobility, the Internet of Things (IoT), social media, and cloud technologies. Applications are at the heart of this transformation - and for small and midsize businesses (SMBs) to be successful, speeding time to value with the new generation of applications and data will require affordable, simple and secure software-defined storage solutions.
In the past, the cost and complexity of software-defined storage (SDS) has made it more suitable for enterprises, but now SDS based on HPE ProLiant DL325 Servers with VMware vSAN frees SMBs from the cost and complexity of traditional storage arrays with a low-cost, scalable storage resource that is simple to deploy, manage, and support. The solution is suitable for SMBs and remote and branch offices (ROBOs) seeking better ways to deal with storage sprawl, or those already using a storage area network (SAN) and looking for a simpler, less costly way to deploy and manage storage to support modern workloads.
Of course, SMBs need affordable, secure on-premises IT that's easy to purchase and manage. HPE DL325 Gen10 Servers with VMware vSAN reference configurations are optimized and validated. This document provides a complete solution recipe, including hardware, software, services, and HPE ProLiant options, for an SDS solution that's suitable for businesses with 150�250 employees.
