Specs for X500

Here is the press release from HP:

Small business owners invest a tremendous amount of time, money and resources to make their ventures successful. Addressing immediate business concerns often means postponing or overlooking technology investments that could impact the bottom line. One of those areas often overlooked are data storage and protection needs. This can lead to missed revenue opportunities through poorly managed data or the inability to rebound from major data loss.

The HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault Series is a new family of storage devices that help small businesses remain competitive by protecting important business data, easily sharing files regardless of location, and automating backups.

“Small businesses need storage technology that lowers risk by quickly bringing data back online if a disaster occurs. It can also increase productivity by sharing and remotely accessing files outside the office,” said Lee Johns, director of marketing, Unified Storage Division, HP. “The HP StorageWorks Data Vault is easy to install, offers data protection and file sharing at an affordable price for small businesses with limited technology resources and budgets.”

A complete storage solution

The HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault Series enables small businesses with up to 10 PC clients and Mac’s to easily store information in a central place. Business owners also save money through a low purchase price, which is up to 22 percent less than comparable solutions.

The HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault Series covers all aspects of storage needs that are important to a small business, including:

· Data storage – customers can meet demanding storage needs with up to three terabytes of storage space and virtually unlimited expansion capabilities that add capacity without powering down the device.

· Data protection – customers can ensure data protection in the event of failure by automatically backing up their clients daily. Customers have added protection by choosing which files are most important, and with the click of a mouse, duplicate that folder to a second hard disk drive.

· Data sharing – customers can share files on their local network through an easy-to-use control panel. Users can also collaborate on projects through Microsoft Windows Home Server, which allows secure remote access to business files.

Larger customers who need high availability or want to simplify data management and grow storage capacity can leverage the HP StorageWorks X1000 and X3000 Network Storage Systems, which consolidate file and block data into a unified storage solution.

    • Well them both run Windows Home Server so the base OS is the same. I dont know yet about any specific additions for the X510 as it was only annouced yesterday. But as soon as I know I will let everyone know.


  1. Ok, so I partly answering my own question, The HP-EX495 has a 1.5TB Drive and the x510 has a 1TB, why would a business by a x510 ??

    • Well the x510 has 3 models, going all the way up to 3TB which the EX49x series dont have. Again, its early days yet to see if there is a real "business" winner.


    • Chuck – I was thinking more about your question as to why a business would buy the x510, and I had a thought.

      Most businesses would prefer to buy a product that they perceive to be a business product, that has business level support, and isnt something that you would find on the shelves of your local electronics store.

      At the end of the day it is pretty much the same product, but its the “business” version and businesses will feel better and not think of it as a home product stuck in a business.
