On June 1st, HP will be announcing a new certification titled “AIS ? Specialty in HP LeftHand SAN Solutions? certification.  

With the acquisition of LeftHand Networks by HP, it was determined that HP needs to ensure our partners are ready and capable to sell, support, and provide install & configuration services for the new HP LeftHand P4000 SAN products.

The certification will provide the training and skills validation for support partners wanting to deliver HP LeftHand P4000 SAN install and startup services.  You can learn more about the HP Lefthand P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance Software below.

HP LeftHand P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance Software

Is the cost of SANs for your virtual servers holding you back? Want higher availability storage for your virtual servers but lack the budget and room for an external SAN system?

The HP LeftHand P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance Software creates a shared storage node using resources that already exist inside the physical server running VMware ESX. These nodes can be clustered together to transform existing server storage into a clustered storage system that is managed as a single SAN. This allows you to use all VMware ESX advanced features that need shared storage such as VMware HA, VMotion, DRS, and SRM. You can use the P4000 VSA to cluster disks from multiple servers without disruption and add more as needed. The P4000 VSA is a VMware certified compatible SAN/Storage device customers can count on. Installed easily on any VMware ESX server, the P4000 VSA combines server virtualization and SAN on the same server platform and is fully integrated with HP LeftHand P4000 SAN Solutions.
