HPE is introducing less expensive versions of some storage platforms so smaller enterprises can enter the next generation

Some small and medium-sized businesses need fast, and flexible storage gear as much as large enterprises.
The need to quickly spin up new applications, even without a storage specialist on staff, can drive those demands.
On Monday, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise extended two of its storage product lines into more affordable territory, in one case adopting an ARM processor to help cut the cost of a system.
HPE says the new systems give smaller organizations a way in on two of the hottest trends in enterprise storage: software-defined storage and flash.
