HPE SimpliVity – Product Brief

Last updated August 8th, 2018 to add 2600 model. Now includes models 380 and 2600. Concise 5-page overview of hyperconverged product HPE SimpliVity. Covers potential, usage, technical specs, and commentary on strengths/concerns.

The HPE SimpliVity 380 and 2600 are Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI) appliances that come in 2U single-node (380) and 2U 3-node (2600) configurations. Both run the SimpliVity OmniStack software and feature all-flash configurations, exclusively. Typically deployed in two-node or larger configurations, HPE SimpliVity 380 clusters can also be created with a single node, allowing lower cost implementations.

For the HPE SimpliVity 380, each 2U node has single or dual Intel Xeon Scalable CPUs with 8 – 44 cores per node running on the DL380 Gen10 platform. Available in “Extra Small, Small, Medium, Large or Extra Large” all-flash models, each node has 5, 9 or 12 SSDs with up to 46TB of capacity (raw) per node.

The HPE SimpliVity 2600 is designed for higher density with up to 3 nodes in a 2U chassis, running on the Apollo 2600 Gen 10 platform. Each node has single or dual CPUs (12 – 44 cores) and supports 6 SSDs with up to 11.5TB of flash capacity. Both the HPE SimpliVity 2600 and 380 support GPUs.

The HPE SimpliVity Data Virtualization Platform (DVP) creates a single data store for the cluster that applies capacity optimization, deduplication and compression across nodes, at ingest, using the PCIe OmniStack Accelerator Card (OAC) to improve data efficiency and decrease costs. The company guarantees 10:1 data reduction but claims 50:1 is typical. The storage from each node in the cluster is pooled and exposed to the hypervisor through traditional interfaces. A Global Unified Management feature provides a ‘single pane of glass’ control over all appliances, local and remote, automating and orchestrating management of the cluster.
