HPE MSA entry-level storage helps businesses preserve cash and easily backup to the cloud with HPE Cloud Volumes Backup
San Jose, Calif., – Sept. 8, 2020 – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) today announced the next generation of the HPE Modular Smart Array (MSA), HPE MSA Gen 6, helping small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) focus on growing their business with an entry-level hybrid-flash storage solution that delivers performance and automation for the tightest of budgets1.
In today’s digital-first economy, technology spending is limited for most SMBs. With HPE MSA, SMBs can preserve cash with an updated entry storage solution that continues to get better with new data services and a modern architecture. HPE MSA also allows SMBs to ensure their most valuable data is secure and easily accessible by employees, no matter where they are working from. Through its new data services and a modernized architecture, HPE MSA enables customers who run on-demand businesses - like media streaming and online education - to manage their distributed applications and workloads more easily.
“The HPE MSA is ideal for the clients we serve whose businesses require a reliable, simple and low-cost storage solution that can match today’s workloads, and scale as their performance and capacity needs grow,” said Sky Cumming, Product Manager, Dicker Data, an IT distributor and HPE channel partner. “The auto tiering capabilities provide the performance needed to power their applications, and the archive storage provides a flexible enterprise-grade storage solution at an entry-level price point. The new HPE MSA Health Check tool protects against attacks and predicts failures before they happen so small businesses can focus on making their business thrive without an IT headache.”
Advancements to the HPE MSA Gen 6 Architecture
Updates to HPE MSA deliver benefits that help to meet the needs of SMBs, including automatic tiering for faster data access, an improved MSA Health Check tool that eliminates common causes of downtime, and integration with HPE Cloud Volumes Backup for cloud backup and data archival. The new features include:
“HPE has continually built on and refined the MSA product family for six generations, focusing on the balance between performance and affordability, as well as looking at the simplicity and customer experience,” said Chris Powers, VP and GM for Big Data and Collaborative Platform Development and HPE. “HPE MSA is helping SMBs by delivering the performance and automation they need to keep their businesses running. We take pride in providing our customers with a reliable and fast solution at an affordable price so that their businesses can serve their clients efficiently.”
HPE has a robust portfolio of solutions for SMBs, including the recently announced monthly subscription service for secure, easy-to-use IT solutions through HPE channel partners, and the HPE MicroServer, providing a small office-in-a-box solution for a complete small office technology foundation.
