HPE SimpliVity 380 is available in 2 series:
Gen 10 4000-series
Gen 10 6000-series
The Gen 10 6000-series is best for high performance, IO intensive mixed workloads, whereas the Gen 10 4000-series is best for typical workloads (heavy reads/lower ratio of writes) at lower cost than the 6000-series. The difference between 4000/6000 is the SSD-type that is inserted in the server hardware.
HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen10 series offer 5 workload models:
Extra Small All SSD (SMB remote offices)
Small All SSD (Small Business and remote offices)
Medium All SDD (Mid-Size Enterprise Data Centers)
Large All SSD (Large Enterprise Data Centers)
Extra Large All SSD (Data-intensive Enterprise Data Centers)
- The Extra Large workload model is only available for the 4000-series.
- Currently only the Extra Large workload model of the 4000-series is not supported for Microsoft Hyper-V environments.
