HPE StoreOpen Software for LTFS has simplified the process of using linear tape file system (LTFS) making it easier to leverage this technology. LTFS makes tape self-describing, file-based, easy-to-use, and provides users with the ability to use standard file operations on tape media for accessing, managing, and sharing files with an interface that behaves just like a hard disk. HPE StoreOpen Software for LTFS provides a native GUI with a familiar look and feel to help LTFS users on Windows® and macOS to mount and use LTFS volumes. Linux® users access all LTFS functionality through easy-to-use command line tools.
In today’s business world, mergers, acquisitions, and technology changes have created IT environments where varieties of dissimilar servers and storage must co-exist. HPE XP P9000 External Storage Software decreases the stress and reduces the cost of owning heterogeneous data storage by simplifying and centralizing common SAN management tasks through storage virtualization. In addition it simplifies movement of data between dissimilar arrays. HPE XP P9000 External Storage Software provides these benefits by giving you the ability to access, monitor, and manage data residing on a variety of different disk arrays as if all of the data were residing on an HPE XP P9500 Storage.
Through advanced virtualization technology, HPE XP P9000 External Storage Software enables the hosting of HPE XP P9500 Storage data on externally attached disk arrays. Servers can see the capacity of the various arrays, but are insulated from the physical attributes.
HPE XP P9000 Tiered Storage Manager Software is a plug-in application for HPE XP P9000 Command View Advanced Edition Software. It allows you to non-disruptively migrate HPE XP P9500 Storage data between tiers of storage while your applications remain online. You can match key user quality of service requirements, like cost, performance and data protection level, to the storage attributes of HPE XP P9500 Storage controlled storage. HPE XP P9000 Tiered Storage Manager Software works not only with internal HPE XP P9500 Storage data, but also with External Storage, such as an MSA or EVA, connected to the HPE XP P9500 Storage.
HPE XP P9000 Tiered Storage Manager Software saves you time and eliminates disruption when you need to migrate ageing data to another tier of storage. With this product you can move the data while it remains online and ready for access. It improves data manageability and is perfect for applications which cannot be stopped or even paused.
High Performance FICON for system z or zHPF is an enhancement of the FICON channel architecture; which also means compatibility with certain standards such as Fibre Channel Physical and Signaling standard (FC-FS), Fibre Channel Switch Fabric and Switch Control Requirements (FC-SW), and Fibre Channel Single-Byte-4 (FC-SB-4) standards. Enhancements have been made to the z/Architecture® and the FICON interface architecture to deliver improvements for online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads. zHPF is implemented exclusively in System z10. When High Performance FICON is exploited by the FICON channel, the z/OS operating system, and the control unit; the FICON channel overhead will be reduced. This is achieved by simplification of the protocol, and by reducing the number of information units processed, resulting in more efficient use of the fiber link.
