HPE SimpliVity 380 hardware:
Gen10 (4000 and 6000)
The Gen10-6000 is best for high performance, IO intensive mixed workloads, whereas the Gen10-4000 is best for typical workloads (heavy reads/lower ratio of writes) at lower cost than the Gen10-6000. The difference between 4000/6000 is the SSD-type that is inserted in the server hardware.
HPE SimpliVity 380 Gen10 series offer 7 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)
G (Software-optimized for flexibility)
H (Storage optimized for backup and recovery)
- The Extra Large workload model is only available for the Gen10-4000.
- Currently only the Extra Large workload model of the Gen10-4000 is not supported for Microsoft Hyper-V environments.
