The HPE XP7 is an OEM of the Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform (VSP) G1500. The XP7 builds on the high-end, highly reliable systems before it; the P9500 and the earlier XP models. Advances in the technology have increased performance, expanded usability with active-active stretched clusters, extended storage virtualization with Virtual Arrays, and added non-disruptive scale out capabilities to extend the life of the system.
The seamless continuation of the HPE XP7 will allow customers familiar with the earlier systems to expand on their value derived from the system with the new capabilities and performance. Environments where the HPE XP7 are used can be expanded with the new capabilities and simplified operations.
This document provides an overview and analysis of the HPE XP7 that was announced in April 2014. Competitive monolithic (supports mainframe and open systems attachment) storage system alternatives include the Dell EMC PowerMax and IBM DS8880.
