HP (NYSE: HPQ) today rolled out a data storage device for the smallest businesses, along with new storage offerings for small to mid-sized enterprises.

The HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault starts at $700 and is aimed at companies that have up to 10 PCs or Macs and might not even own a server yet.

The device, based on Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT) Windows Home Server, stores and protects 1TB to 3TB of data. It includes Web-based management, and Lee Johns, HP's director of marketing for Unified Storage, said "you can manage it from your iPhone if you want to."

The X500 also mirrors data and deduplicates files to protect data and make the most of storage capacity. If a drive fails, data is protected because it is mirrored across the other drives.

The device puts HP in a market dominated by the likes of Buffalo's TeraStation products and EMC's (NYSE: EMC) Iomega unit. Indeed, HP boasts in its marketing materials that the new X510 costs 22 percent less than the 2TB TeraStation III.

HP also unveiled new Windows Storage Server-based StorageWorks X3000 gateways.

Starting at $10,000 for a single controller version and $18,000 for a dual controller version, the gateways are packaged with MSA2000 disk arrays and HBAs, and offer Fibre Channel, iSCSI and SAS connection options.

The new offerings build on HP's X1000, X3000 and second-generation MSAs unveiled in May.
