HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator
How is your enterprise responding to the digital transformation? Are your data centers under pressure to deliver greater performance, agility and operational efficiency to address data growth and dynamic business demands? The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator modernizes the storage network enabling businesses to increase productivity, scale and improve the efficiency of their storage investments. SAN configurations are often tedious and prone to human-error and often in multi-protocol environments. Delivering automation, orchestration and fabric services empowers administrators to provision storage in error-free and arrange fabric services for increasing fabric resiliency. HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator delivers protocol agnostic, fabric configuration validation with Single Point of Connectivity Knowledge (SPOCK), assessing the health of physical ports with self-healing, fabric monitoring, while performing end-to-end diagnostics, using predefined templates to reduce configuration errors.
Orchestrate Fabric Services Across Multi-protocols
The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator arranges and monitors end-to-end multi-protocol fabrics with HPE 3PAR family of products to increase fabric uptime, resiliency, and predictability. Automatic fabric services for FC and iSCSI protocols for HPE 3PAR.
Predefined and custom templates enable fabric configuration consistency and repeatability.
Quickly generate templates that are pre-configured and/or customized configurations, which can apply to manage elements on specific devices thereby reducing human-error while facilitating sharing of best practices.
SAN Pre-deployment Verification with HPE SPOCK Assurance
The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator validates the integrity, interoperability, and compliance of Hewlett Packard Enterprise storage, servers, and network fabric infrastructures before or during deployment.
Keep the SAN and fabric infrastructure in ideal health by making informed decisions with better supportability and predictability.
Assess, report, and remedy for improved fabric health.
Visualize Managed Elements of the Fabric End-to-end
The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator allows the administrator to understand what devices are connected end-to-end and view fabric visibility while launching a sequence of steps to create the topology view of the managed elements.
Discover managed elements including: HPE 3PAR, HPE StoreFabric M-series Ethernet switches, HPE StoreFabric B-series Fibre Channel switches, qualified third-party Ethernet switches, adapters (HBAs, NICs, CNAs), cables and optical transceivers.
End-to-end Monitoring With Self-healing Capabilities
The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator monitors activities and generate an event for action, auditing, and reporting.
Administrators can monitor various parameters end-to-end to make informed decisions based on alerts with other fabric services to remedy a situation. Delivering an easy way for administrators to be altered about storage networking issues.
Builds on the basic diagnostic ready fabric capabilities with advanced diagnostic assessment to monitor and quickly identify states of physical ports for root cause analysis, failure impact assessment, and self-healing for improved performance.
