You have better things to do than worry about storage. you're working with multiple management interfaces, security concerns, and shrinking backup windows - all while your data is growing, requiring more and more space. You need a shared storage solution that's powerful and easy to manage, and you need it now. HPE X1000 G2 Network Storage Systems are the fast and easy way to add Windows-powered unified shared storage to your small or medium IT environment. The X1000 G2 Network Storage Systems offers you more for your money since it's a multi-protocol file server for Windows and UNIX/Linux and also iSCSI storage for applications/virtual environments. Built on industry standards, the X1000 G2 is an economical and easy to manage solution for consolidating to centralized shared network storage. The operating system is pre-installed and comes with HPE X1000 Automated Storage Manager, so you'll be up and running in minutes.

Get More for your Money.
Consolidate islands of direct-attached storage to one easy-to-use Windows shared network storage platform. Since it's versatile unified storage, it can be a file server (or disk-based backup / replication target), an iSCSI target for application/virtual environment storage, or both. In a Windows (SMB/CIFS) environment, ther's no better way to serve files. In mixed environments, you get the flexibility of heterogeneous support for standard network protocols like NFS, HTTP, FTP, and WebDAV. Network Attached Storage (NAS) isn't just about sharing files any more - it's about sharing information. With the included Microsoft iSCSI Software Target, you can host storage for applications like Microsoft Exchange and SQL, or for Microsoft Hyper-V or VMware deployments. Get File Deduplication, Quotas, File Screening, Storage Reporting, Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) snapshots, and Distributed File System (DFS) Replication - all at no extra cost. Don't forget that X1000 G2 Network Storage Systems host print services too, offering consolidation benefits to your Windows print environment.

Do More with Fewer Resources.
The operating system is pre-installed and user storage is easy to provision with HPE X1000 Automated Storage Manager, so you can add storage to your network quickly and safely. Create, migrate, manage, and protect file shares (NAS) and application storage (iSCSI Target) without the need for storage expertise. Automated â€ËÅ"best practic' logic configures storage without your needing to know industry-established best practices. ASM is like having a storage expert in the box. A consolidated and unified shared network storage system means you have one thing to manage, expand, and protect. Single Instance Storage (SIS) recovers up to 35% of disk capacity by reducing the number of redundant files. If you've used Microsoft Management Console (MMC) to manage a Windows server, you're probably already familiar with how to manage HPE X1000 G2 Network Storage Systems.

Protect and Optimize your Investment.
Relax - your investment is protected because you're not locked into proprietary hardware. And you can take advantage of built-in functionality like Integrated Lights-Out that lets you manage and troubleshoot remotely. X1000 G2 models integrate with HPE SIM and support ProLiant Support Pack. HPE X1000 G2 Network Storage Systems feature multi-core Intel® Xeon® processors, support for SATA or SAS internal hot plug hard drives, and easy external SAS expansion with HPE disk enclosures. There's also an X1000 G2 network storage solution for HPE C-class BladeSystem (X1800sb G2). The X1000 G2 models run a Windows operating system, so they integrate natively (not by emulation) into your Windows Active Directory and DFS environments, and run your off standard Windows-based antivirus, backup, and storage management applications. Backup to disk, tape, or other removable media with Data Protector Express Software, and replicate data on a scheduled basis to another system using HPE Storage Mirroring Software.
