challenges. The ability to buy storage capacity
only when needed simplifies planning and
relieves upfront budget pressures.
The StoreVirtual 3200 can scale up to three
additional SFF and/or LFF drive enclosures,
adding capacity or performance as needed to
meet changing requirements.
Flexibility, resilience, and investment
protection built into the StoreVirtual
3200’s DNA
With purpose-built hardware and the latest
StoreVirtual operating system, HPE StoreVirtual
3200 Storage platform takes advantage
of HPE’s composable data fabric, which
delivers robust data services and provides
the field-proven nod of confidence from over
200,000 StoreVirtual users. HPE delivers its
composable data fabric across a number of
hardware and compute platforms. StoreVirtual
VSA deployments bring software-defined
composable data fabric services to x86 servers
providing enhanced flexibility and agility to
meet a wide range of unique workloads
and demands. This composable data fabric
technology forms the DNA from which the
StoreVirtual 3200 was born.
StoreVirtual 3200 data services
The StoreVirtual 3200 includes a rich set of data
services built on HPE’s StoreVirtual Operating
System (SVOS). Combined with the new
next-generation hardware architecture, the
latest SVOS delivers on HPE’s composable data
fabric strategy leveraging a consistent and rich
set of resilient shared storage capabilities across
many different platforms.
Robust availability choices
HPE StoreVirtual 3200 Storage allows you to
select and enhance availability at a volume level
to meet application and business requirements.
You have several dimensions of flexibility to
enhance a system’s configuration to meet each
application’s availability objectives.
•Storage RAID—you are allowed to group
storage media into logical capacity pools
and then apply an industry-standard RAID
technology to that pool. Each RAID type
delivers a specific set of parity protection,
availability, and capacity utility characteristics.
Supported storage RAID types are RAID-5,
RAID-6, and RAID-10.
•Facilitating another availability dimension at a
volume level, the StoreVirtual 3200 supports
not only Network RAID 0 but also optionally
Network RAID 10. Network RAID 0 is enabled
by default and maintains data availability
to applications in the event of a drive or
controller failure.
•Network RAID 10 offers an optional
additional layer of data protection by
mirroring the data in the storage pool. You
can manage redundancy on a per-volume
basis to enhance storage utilization and
match the availability requirements to the
application whose data resides on the volume.

Efficient Thin Provisioning and space
reclamation features
•The HPE StoreVirtual 3200 Storage operating
system manages all physical storage allocation
underneath a given volume. This layer of
abstraction enables Thin Provisioning, a
feature which physically allocates space only
as data is actually written to that volume. Thin
Provisioning allows customers to purchase
physical storage (HDDs and SSDs) when they
are needed. This technology also makes it easy
to add physical storage when needed, raising
the overall utilization and efficiency of the array
and increasing the ROI associated with storage
•Unused virtual disk space can be reclaimed
where files have been deleted from
virtual disks by host operating systems or
hypervisors. Files must be permanently
deleted (on the host) to be considered as
unused space. The unused space is returned
to the storage pool.
•The StoreVirtual 3200 can reclaim space
automatically when the T10 UNMAP feature
is turned on in VMware vSphere® and
Microsoft Windows® environments.
Array management and automation
•The StoreVirtual 3200 utilizes a REST API
and provides a rich standardized interface
for configuring, managing, and maintaining
your array. Using an industry-standard
protocol, you can easily develop scripts or
programs tasks. For the StoreVirtual 3200,
the REST API enables system configuration
and health monitoring, management, and
maintenance abilities across all storage
entities in the array (examples—disks,
enclosures, RAID devices/sets, volumes,
snapshots, clones).
Robust snapshot technologies
•HPE StoreVirtual 3200 Storage supports
over 2000 snapshots and mid-range
snapshot capabilities providing you the
ability to determine the right availability
profile for any application host on the array.
Application-consistent snapshots
•HPE StoreVirtual 3200 Storage allows
for the creation of application-consistent
snapshots of VMware® and Hyper-V VMs
and of Microsoft® VSS-enabled applications.
•Application-consistent snapshots create
instant application-consistent copies of
data on a per-volume basis. Snapshots can
be created in a variety of ways to meet
business or application requirements. You
can create snapshots manually, on a scheduled
or scripted basis, or via the Microsoft VSS
framework. You can then access snapshot
data to recover individual files or folders from
the volume, or roll back an entire volume to
a specific point in time. StoreVirtual 3200
snapshots are always thinly provisioned for
efficiency, only consuming storage space
on the array for the data written to the
snapshot—removing any upfront space
reservation or guesswork that could lead to
snapshot and backup job failures.
•SmartClone technology allows you to
quickly and easily make multiple identical
virtual copies (or clones) of volumes without
requiring additional storage space. The feature
works by taking any volume or snapshot and
making one or many clones in an instant.
The cloning function makes a permanent,
read/write volume on the array, pointing back
to the original volume’s blocks instead of
duplicating the blocks. These space-efficient,
thin-provisioned volume clones can be used
to develop, test, and deploy new operating
system versions and applications, or implement
a virtual desktop infrastructure, and so on.

Advanced replication capabilities
•Remote Copy2 allows you to replicate
thin-provisioned snapshots between
primary and remote locations. Because
remote copies are thin-provisioned, no
space reservation at the remote location
is required. Remote Copy can be used for
centralized backup and disaster recovery
and can be set up on a per-volume
basis. Remote copies placed on a recurring
schedule allow you to achieve point-in-time
asynchronous replication of the data
between locations, sites, or data centers.
•Integrated into the Remote Copy capability
is intelligent bandwidth management that
facilitates sending data traffic across shared
WAN links without adversely affecting
other network traffic. You simply set the
bandwidth limit for remote copies between
the two sites and the StoreVirtual 3200
software holds that limit.
•Remote Copy leverages application-consistent
snapshots to enable VMware and Hyper-V
VMs as well as Microsoft VSS applications to
be replicated in a quiesced state, providing
faster application recovery.
•The HPE StoreVirtual 3200 Adaptive
Optimization3 (AO) feature is an innovative
technology that greatly increases the
efficient use of faster storage devices (such
as SSDs) by automatically and intelligently
moving data between tiers of storage with
different performance characteristics within
a single storage system.

•AO reduces planning complexity by utilizing
innovative algorithms to pinpoint hot data
at a highly granular level and moving data
in real time while maintaining a balance
between background I/O operations and
application I/O requirements. The result
is a hands-free sub-LUN tiering solution
that increases application performance
substantially without any administrator
•AO is configurable on a per-volume basis,
and requires no tuning or specialized
configuration to implement.
•Performance benefits are experienced
immediately, as the AO engine constantly
monitors the I/O demands placed on the
StoreVirtual 3200 array and reacts in near-real
time to changes in workloads—very different
than some competitive tiering offerings which
only move data once or twice a day.
