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.
Are you facing data protection and application availability challenges in your data center? Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Veeam software have partnered to deliver unique capabilities for intelligent data management. Veeam’s Hyper-Availability Platform for virtual, physical, and cloud-enabled deployments offers an end-to-end data protection solution that evolves the way you manage your data, from policy-based to behavior-based, to make it smarter, self-governing and to ensure it is Hyper-Available. The hyper-convergence of Veeam solutions with HPE 3PAR StoreServ and HPE Nimble Storage primary arrays, HPE data protection platforms HPE StoreOnce and HPE StoreEver and other HPE Storage Systems including, HPE Servers and HPE SimpliVity, means that protected workloads are ultra-resilient to data loss. HPE StoreOnce Systems offer efficient storage for Veeam Software, backup repositories, enable fast recovery, and provide multiple recovery points in case of data loss.
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.
ISL Trunking delivers high performance enhanced trunking capabilities by aggregating up to four ISLs into a single logical 8 Gb Fibre Channel link. This license logically groups up to four e-ports to provide a high bandwidth Trunk between two switches. The switch operating system views the Trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 8 Gb) when routing connections between switches. Connections are load-balanced across the individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group. Each 16-port switch can have four separate 4-port Trunk groups. The result is improved performance, increased high availability, and simplified network design and management.
