VMware announces the launch of VMware vSphere 6, in which HP has worked closely with VMware from the project’s start to define, develop, and test the vSphere Virtual Volumes technology, a significant storage enhancement introduced in vSphere 6. HP is delivering Day 1 support and certification for vSphere 6 and vSphere Virtual Volumes across midrange, high-end, and all-flash HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage arrays, enabling customers to upgrade vSphere on the proven HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage platform as soon as they are ready. HP will also provide support for vSphere 6 across the HP StoreVirtual, MSA, and XP Storage platforms.

VMware vSphere 6 is the next version of their virtualization platform, a new and important enhancement in vSphere 6, allows users to marry the powerful data services of the storage array with the granularity of individual virtual machines (VMs), providing flexibility and simplified management. vSphere Virtual Volumes enables customers to exercise better control over the way they apply unique, array-based data services to support business objectives such as assuring service levels for mission-critical applications. An administrator can therefore set policies which automatically assign dedicated storage resources to maintain service levels for a company’s most important applications, regardless of the demands generated by other applications or VMs.

HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage was selected by VMware as the only Fibre Channel reference platform for its Virtual Volumes development at the start of the program.
