Storage Area Networks and the tools that are used to manage them have become increasingly complex. SAN administrators spend more time in configuration tasks – tedious manual activities which can potentially result in unplanned downtime. The reasons for the complexity include the increased adoption of Virtualization – a complexity stemming from mapping the virtual and physical layers of the SAN and the adoption of multiple protocols - iSCSI, FC and FCoE. HPE Smart SAN for 3PAR makes SAN configuration and management simple and error-free through intelligent automation. It is a protocol agnostic application embedded in SAN components that enables the 3PAR to orchestrate configuration, settings and policies in a HPE StoreFabric SAN. HPE Smart SAN’s Target Driven Peer Zoning enables you to configure zones accurately in minutes and not in hours and its automatic discovery mechanism creates a powerful platform which would enable real-time diagnostics and SAN analysis for more resiliency.
Do you need to protect your data across multiple site failures ? Are you looking for a multi disaster tolerant solution that also provides high availability?
HPE XP7 Three Data Center High Availability Suite with High Availability and Continuous Access Journal delta resync combines the high availability and synchronous replication at metropolitan distances with the long distance capability of journal replication.
A campus/metropolitan HA implementation allows for data currency due to Active-Active configuration at data center 1 and 2 with no impact to application availability or performance.
The HA pair volume are configured for Active-Active setup to provide for 14 9s availability.
If a failure at Site A, prevents host access to primary volume at Site A, read and write I/O can still continue to Site B, providing continuous server I/O to the data volume.
The journal for delta resync pair holds the differential data between the S-VOLs on local and remote sites.
The HPE StoreFront Analytics software provides customers using HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage with dashboards to gain deep insights and visibility into log analytics of the storage infrastructure.
