HP India offers free VSA license to Intel Xeon E5 v3 server buyers - Infotech Lead (registration) (blog)

HP India offers free VSA license to Intel Xeon E5 v3 server buyers - Infotech Lead (registration) (blog) | Virtual Storage Appliance | Scoop.it
Enterprise networking vendor HP India today announced two ProLiant Moonshot servers, HP SDN App Store, free StoreVirtual Virtual Storage Appliance (VSA) license
John McArthur's insight:

Free is not always free. The license is only free for 1TB. Users should pay close attention to the additional hardware and software licenses that may be required. Factors impacting the true cost include processor, memory and storage requirements, and the resulting maintenance, power and cooling. In addition, with virtual storage appliances, split brain scenarios need to be managed through a quorum (a neutral storage host). In order to simultaneously reduce the risk of downtime and data corruption/data loss, the HP StoreVirtual VSA requires 3 on-premises devices.
