While there are 32GB micro-SD or USB boot device options available today with VMware requiring as much as 128GB of storage for the OS and Microsoft Storage Spaces Direct needing 200GB — these solutions simply don’t have the storage capacity needed. Using hardware RAID controllers and disk drives in the server bays is another option. However, this adds significant cost and complexity to a server configuration just to meet the OS requirement. The proper solution to address separating the OS from user data is the HPE NS204i-p NVME OS Boot Device.

HPE NS204i-p NVME OS Boot Device

Thanks to innovative NVMe technology from Marvell, this award winning boot device from HPE delivers reliable and easy-to-use server boot capability for system administrators deploying HPE servers. The HPE NS204i-p is a standalone solution that requires a single PCIe slot in the server and uses standard OS NVMe drivers to provide 480GB of secure RAID 1 storage for the OS data. No special software is required for the RAID management as everything is self-contained in the hardware.

In summary, when deploying HPE ProLiant servers or HPE Apollo systems with virtualized operating systems, the HPE NS204i-p NVMe OS Boot Device is an ideal default setup for server configurations. This device provides a simple, secure, reliable and cost-effective way to separate the OS and user data within the virtualized server.
