    The HP StoreVirtual VSA is sheer awesomeness. It’s going to form the basis of all my storage for my home lab.

    Before we move on, let’s examine why it’s so cool.

    • Runs as a VM on either Hyper V, ESXi or VMware Player
    • Use existing HP ProLiant or C Class Blade hardware to create a virtual iSCSI SAN.
    • Thin Provisioning
    • Storage Clustering
    • Wide Strip RAID 5, 6 and 10
    • Network RAID 0, 5, 6, 10, 10+1 and 10+2
    • Automatic SAN Failover using Failover Manager
    • A Synchronous Replication including bandwidth throttling

    That’s a large amount of features which is perfect for any lab environment, it will give me the ability to create a vSphere Metro Storage Cluster, deploy Site Recovery Manager as it has a Storage Replication Adapter and is featured on the SRM Hardware Compatibility List.
