Are you wondering if the capacity in your Hewlett Packard Enterprise Storage array is running low or if your system's performance can continue to meet your applications’ increasing demand? HPE StoreFront Remote is a Hewlett Packard Enterprise storage analytics platform designed to help you make better data center decisions. It complements the Hewlett Packard Enterprise on premises management solutions by providing insights and analytics into the storage infrastructure to help you plan better for growth, be proactive in identifying incorrect configurations and older versions of firmware and software. It also keeps you informed about the wellness status of your HPE Storage and in turn helps utilize your HPE Storage Arrays more efficiently.
HPE XP Thin Provisioning Software reduces the cost, accelerates the return on investment and reduces the environmental impact of your HPE XP24000 and XP20000 Disk Arrays. It allows you to supply disk storage capacity to your applications from a pool of virtualized storage. By enabling you to allocate your anticipated future storage capacity needs from virtual disk storage, HPE XP Thin Provisioning Software reduces the amount of physical disk capacity initially required. As utilization of disk space increases over time, you can purchase more disk capacity as it is needed and install it without affecting your applications. HPE XP Thin Provisioning Software reduces your initial storage acquisition cost, and reduces total cost of ownership, by allowing you to defer some storage purchases to a later date. Configure large logical volumes using a minimum of physical capacity, only paying for and installing storage when it is needed.
HPE XP for FlashCopy Mirroring Software enhances data availability for mainframe data and improves productivity by providing IBM FlashCopy compatible point-in-time copies within an HPE XP Disk Array. As soon as a copy is created, it becomes available for use. The copy can be either virtual or physical. If a virtual copy is specified, it remains a pointer-based copy that only saves the changes from the original. However, if a physical copy is specified, a full copy will be completed in the background while both the source and the copy remain available for access.
For additional availability, FlashCopy can be combined with Hitachi ShadowImage for Mainframe, Hitachi TrueCopy for Mainframe, Hitachi Universal Replicator for Mainframe, and HPE XP for Compatible Extended Remote Copy.
HPE XP for Business Continuity Manager Software enhances productivity by centralizing and simplifying management of XP disk array local and remote replication functionality in mainframe environments. Business Continuity Manager manages Hitachi ShadowImage for Mainframe, Hitachi TrueCopy for Mainframe, Hitachi TrueCopy Async for Mainframe, and Hitachi Universal Replicator for Mainframe. By automating configuration and disaster recovery tasks, Business Continuity Manger reduces human error, saves time, and improves data availability. For additional efficiency, Business Continuity Manager provides a scripting capability and group control commands, allowing administrators to manage multiple volumes easily. Through a linkage with HPE XP Replication Monitor Software, mainframe replication information can be displayed by HPE XP Command View Advanced Edition Software.
HPE XP for Compatible Extended Remote Copy (XRC) Software provides disaster protection and data migration capability for data stored on an HPE XP Disk Array by implementing IBM mainframe compatible asynchronous remote replication. XRC provides the same functionality as IBM Extended Remote Copy (now called IBM TotalStorage z/OS Global Mirror), and is compatible with System Data Mover (SDM) mainframe software. When data is written to the local XP disk array, XRC temporarily stores a timestamped copy of it in a sidefile. SDM in one of the mainframe hosts asynchronously reads the sidefile data from the local XP disk array and then writes the data to the remote disk array.
XRC can be combined with other XP disk array replication products for additional availability. When combined with Hitachi TrueCopy for Mainframe, XRC supports 3 Data Center disaster recovery solutions.
HPE XP for Compatible Parallel Access Volumes Software (PAV) and HPE XP for Compatible Hyper PAV Software enable high performance concurrent access of mainframe volumes by permitting a mainframe host system to issue multiple I/O requests in parallel to individual logical devices within the HPE XP Disk Array. Without PAV, mainframe systems can initiate only one I/O request per device at a time, and must wait for the I/O to complete before starting another I/O request to the same device. By utilizing alias addresses that all point to the same device as the base address, PAV enables the host system to start several I/O requests simultaneously to the same device, thus greatly improving performance.
The XP Disk Array supports static PAV, dynamic PAV, and Hyper PAV. With static PAV, the number of aliases assigned to each base device does not change. With dynamic PAV, high workload base devices can borrow idle PAV aliases from other base devices, increasing their I/O capability.
HPE Business Copy EVA Software, an array based application that utilizes a powerfully simple HPE Replication Solutions Manager (RSM) user interface, creates, manages and configures local replication on the full EVA product family to meet business continuity and regulatory requirements. Business Copy EVA shares an integrated management interface with HPE Continuous Access EVA Software. The RSM manages all local and remote replication features across the full EVA array storage family. The combination of the Business Copy EVA Software’s unique Snapclone and Vsnap local replication technologies with an unparalleled easy to use RSM interface, businesses now can achieve new IT efficiencies. With the new Instant Restore capability enterprises can now quickly and easily restore a source volume if it should become corrupted. The flexible and cost effective license model offers a simple means to achieve growth without limits when business needs change.
The HPE Secure Manager for Tape Libraries software advanced feature option provides secure, device-level access, virtual library partitions, and configuration flexibility designed for SAN environments. As a component of HPE Command View for Tape Libraries (CV-TL), it provides centralized, web-based management for HPE ESL9000 and ESL E-Series enterprise class tape libraries, increases reliability and robustness of tape libraries in the SAN, and integrates with leading enterprise management applications.
Secure Manager for Tape Libraries allows system administrators to design reliability and security into backup SAN environments, providing backup security against extraneous SAN events and protecting host servers with the benefit of simplified SAN management. Virtual library partitions provide security between separated SAN environments.
