While configuring my lab, I would like to use some local storage inside two of my servers, by installing some VSA. I usually run with great satisfaction the HP VSA, who has been renamed recently StoreVirtual even if it keeps in some places its old name LeftHand (and also in my heart…)
From some time 10.0 binaries are available as a direct downloads rather than as an upgrade only available inside the 9.5 version of the Central Managent Console. So I downloaded the ESXi version and I installed two of them, one per server.

In a previous post, I explained how to install and configure HP Insight Control for VMware vCenter 7.1.1 to monitor and manage an HP LeftHand storage directly inside vCenter Web Client.

Last monday, HP launched their new 3Par line of products, with new models 7200 and 7400, targeted to the midrange market, while historically 3Par has always been used in the high-end. Some bloggers already wrote about this news, I’m going to wrap up about these and other news when I’ll be back home, for now you can read this post by Hans De Leenheer to get an overview.
Today, Veeam is announcing a new storage support for their new More >
