Today's SMBs have ever-growing needs with respect to storage.  Not only do SMBs often need many terabytes of storage, they require a level of high-availability typically associated with large-scale, enterprise deployments. Furthermore, given IT staffing constraints, storage solutions should be easily installed and managed by existing IT staff. Tests show that a 2-node, HP X5520 G2 9.6TB LFF 15K Network Storage System could be installed "out-of-the-box" to a fully-functional, HA system joined to a Microsoft domain in less than 90 minutes. The HP-supplied Initial Configuration Tasks tool guides the user through each deployment stage, eliminating a great deal of manual configuration.

Read this Tolly Test Report and how the HP X5000 G2 Network Storage System powered by Intel® Xeon® processors not only integrates with existing Microsoft, Unix, and Linux applications using CIFS and/or NFS, but also enables high-speed connectivity to a host of virtualization platforms, database applications, backup applications and more.
