Technical white paperPage 3Executive summaryWhen supported with the correct underlying storage platform, server virtualization delivers increased infrastructure consolidation, administrativeefficiency, business continuity, and cost savings. As a result, server virtualization is not only transforming the data center, but also the businessesthat those data centers fuel. However, these transformative results depend on advanced storage to deliver the performance, availability, andflexibility to keep up with the dynamic and consolidated nature of virtualized server environments.To maximize the many benefits and features that virtualization provides, a shared-storage system is required. Small-to-medium businesses(SMBs) need integration, performance, and resiliency to power their virtual environments. Each SMB must work within smaller budget constraintsto deploy the same features that modern enterprises typically demand. The latest generation of HPE MSA storage is designed and built toexceed the economic and operational requirements of virtual data centers by providing the storage performance, scalability, availability, andsimplified management that SMBs with growing storage require.When deployed together, HPE MSA storage with Microsoft Hyper-V Server provides SMBs with the benefits of consolidation savings byincreasing virtual machine (VM) density, lowering storage costs, and realizing time savings from simplified storage management andprovisioning.Solution overviewClustered, fault-tolerant, virtualization environments, such as Microsoft Hyper-V Server, rely heavily upon centrally managed, scalable SANresources. The HPE MSA storage system provides a versatile entry-level SAN solution for Hyper-V host clusters. Microsoft Hyper-Vadministrators, as well as IT generalists, find storage-management tasks simple and intuitive with HPE MSA storage.This solution demonstrates the integration between the HPE MSA storage system, HPE OneView for Microsoft System Center, Microsoft SystemCenter 2016 - Virtual Machine Manager, and Microsoft System Center 2016 - Operations Manager.Solution componentsThis section provides a description of each solution component, including the following: Hardware components– HPE MSA 2050/2052 storage (Generation 5)– HPE ProLiant DL380 Generation9 (Gen9) server– HPE storage networking with the HPE StoreFabric SN6000B Fibre Channel Switch– HPE StoreFabric SN1200E 16 Gb Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapter Software components– Microsoft Windows Server 2016– Microsoft Hyper-V– Windows Failover Cluster Manager– HPE storage integrationsHardwareClustered, fault-tolerant, virtualization environments, such as Microsoft Hyper-V, rely upon centrally-managed, scalable, storage-area network(SAN) resources. The HPE MSA storage system provides a versatile entry-level SAN solution for Hyper-V host clusters.
