With HP StorageWorks X1600 G2, worry about storage is a thing of past. When you’re working with multiple management interfaces, security concerns, and shrinking backup windows, your growing data requires more and more space. HP StorageWorks X1600 G2 is the solution. It is a powerful and easily-managed storage server. It not only helps add Windows-powered unified shared storage to your small or medium IT environment in an easy and fast way, but also saves your money since it's a multi-protocol file server for Windows and UNIX/Linux and also iSCSI storage for applications/virtual environments. Plus, the X1000 G2 is an economical and easy to manage solution for consolidating to centralized shared network storage. The operating system is pre-installed and comes with HP X1000 Automated Storage Manager, so you'll be up and running in minutes.
Get More for your Money Consolidate islands of direct-attached storage to one easy-to-use Windows shared network storage platform. Since it’s versatile unified storage, it can be a file server (or disk-based backup / replication target), an iSCSI target for application/virtual environment storage, or both. In a Windows (SMB/CIFS) environment, there’s no better way to serve files. In mixed environments, you get the flexibility of heterogeneous support for standard network protocols like NFS, HTTP, FTP, and WebDAV. Network Attached Storage (NAS) isn’t just about sharing files any more—it’s about sharing information. With the included Microsoft iSCSI Software Target, you can host storage for a bunch of applications—all at no extra cost. Don't forget that X1000 G2 Network Storage Systems host print services too, offering consolidation benefits to your Windows print environment.
Do More with Fewer Resources The operating system is pre-installed and user storage is easy to provision with HP X1000 Automated Storage Manager, so you can add storage to your network quickly and safely. Create, migrate, manage, and protect file shares (NAS) and application storage (iSCSI Target) without the need for storage expertise. Automated ‘best practice’ logic configures storage without your needing to know industry-established best practices. ASM is like having a storage expert in the box. A consolidated and unified shared network storage system means you have one thing to manage, expand, and protect. Single Instance Storage (SIS) recovers up to 35% of disk capacity by reducing the number of redundant files. If you've used Microsoft Management Console (MMC) to manage a Windows server, you're probably already familiar with how to manage HP X1000 G2 Network Storage Systems.
