vSphere: 2-16 storage nodes (cluster); 2-8 storage nodes (stretched cluster); 2-32+ storage nodes (Federation) in 1-node increments
HPE SimpliVity 2600 currently offers support for up to 16 storage nodes and 720 VMs within a single VSI cluster, and up to 8 storage noes within a single VDI cluster. Up to 32 storage nodes are supported within a single Federation. Multiple Federations can be used in either single-site or multi-site deployments, allowing for a scalable as well as a flexible solution. Data protection can be configured to run in between federations.

Cluster scale enhancements (16 nodes instead of 8 nodes within a single cluster) apply to new as well as existing SimpliVity clusters that run OmniStack 3.7.7.

For specific use-cases a Request for Product Qualification (RPQ) process can be initiated to authorize more than 32 storage nodes within a single Federation.

HPE SimpliVity 2600 also supports adding compute nodes to a storage node cluster in vSphere environments.

Stretched Clusters with Availability Zones remain supported for up to 8 HPE OmniStack hosts (4 per Availability Zone).

OmniStack 3.7.7 introduces support for multi-host deployment at one time to a cluster.

HPE OmniStack 3.7.8 introduces support for 48 clusters per Federation (previously 16 clusters) when using multiple vCenter Servers in Enhanced Linked Mode.
