The Benefits of Upgrading Your Infrastructure to HPE SimpliVity

Hyperconvergence puts your entire virtualized IT infrastructure and advanced data services into one integrated powerhouse. You can give developers the runway to rapidly deploy applications at cloud-like speed — to scale fast, without compromising performance — while drastically cutting costs and simplifying backup and restore. The new HPE SimpliVity is a powerful, enterprise-grade hyperconvergence platform that unites your server with high-performance data services and allows you to simplify and streamline your IT operations. 
HPE SimpliVity 380: Converge Your Entire Infrastructure

HPE SimpliVity 380, available on HPE ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Servers, is a compact, scalable 2U rack-mounted building block that delivers server, storage, and storage networking services. It also delivers a complete set of advanced functionality that enables dramatic improvements to the efficiency, management, protection, and performance of virtualized workloads—at a fraction of the cost and complexity of today’s traditional infrastructure stack.

If you use HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure and its built-in VM-centric backup capability as outlined below,3 you will achieve 90% capacity savings4 across storage and backup combined, relative to comparable traditional solutions.


Using HPE SimpliVity user interface, which is fully integrated with VMware® vCenter™, you only need three clicks5 to back up, restore, move or clone a VM, all from a single console.


Using the HPE SimpliVity user interface in a central location, in less than a minute on average, you will be able to create or update backup policies for thousands of VMs across dozens of sites.


You will be able to add or replace HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged systems without any downtime for local or remote sites, disruption to local or remote HPE SimpliVity backups, reconfiguration of HPE SimpliVity and backup policies for local or remote sites.


If you use HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure and its built-in backup capability, it will take less than one minute,on average, to complete a local backup or local restore of a 1 TB VM.

The savings or efficiency are based on the assumption that you configure a backup policy to take at least one HPE SimpliVity backup per day of every virtual machine on every HPE SimpliVity system in a given VMware® Datacenter with those backups retained for 30 days. If backups are performed more frequently and/or retained for a longer period, you will enjoy even greater efficiency. The data change rate is assumed to be up to 5% per day with up to 30% growth rate of the data over a duration of 30 contiguous days.; 4. Ninety percent savings is the equivalent of 10:1 efficiency in the VMware Datacenter panel in the HPE SimpliVity tab within the VMware vSphere® Client. Efficiency is calculated across all HPE SimpliVity systems in a VMware Datacenter. It’s the ratio of storage capacity that would have been used on a comparable traditional storage solution to the physical storage that is actually used in the HPE SimpliVity hyperconverged infrastructure. Comparable traditional solutions are storage systems that provide VM-level synchronous replication for storage and backup and do not include any deduplication or compression capability.; 5. Assumes that the user is starting from the view/tab in the interface that shows the VMs or backups that are being acted on. Changing default destinations are not counted in the three clicks.; 6. Time taken by applications to quiesce data is not included in the one minute because it is not in HPE SimpliVity infrastructure’s control.
