HPE LeftHand/StoreVirtual REST Client

This is a Client library that can talk to the HPE LeftHand/StoreVirtual Storage array. The HPE LeftHand storage array has a REST web service interface as well as runs SSH. This client library implements a simple interface to talk with that REST interface using the python Requests http library and communicates via SSH using Pytohn's paramiko library.

This is the new location for the rebranded HP LeftHand/StoreVirtual REST Client and will be where all future releases are made. It was previously located on PyPi at:

The GitHub repository for the old HP LeftHand/StoreVirtual REST Client is located at:

The HP LeftHand/StoreVirtual REST Client (hplefthandclient) is now considered deprecated.


This branch requires 11.5 version or later of the LeftHand OS firmware.
