Details
Storage+Compute: Existing HPE SimpliVity 2600 federations can be expanded by adding additional HPE SimpliVity 2600 nodes, which adds additional compute and storage resources to the shared pool.

Compute-only: Because HPE SimpliVity 2600 leverages a file-level protocol (NFS), storage can be presented to hypervisor hosts not participating in the HPE SimpliVity 2600 cluster. This is also beneficial to migrations, since it allows for online storage vMotions between HPE SimpliVity 2600 and non-HPE SimpliVity 2600 storage platforms.

Storage-only: N/A; A HPE SimpliVity 2600 node always takes active part in the hypervisor (compute) cluster as well as the storage cluster.
