HPE XP P9000 Resource Partition Software allows role based access control of XP P9500 resources. It allows storage administrators to partition XP P9500 Storage resources, at physical and logical level (Ports, Parity Groups, LDEV, Host Groups, External Volume) and assigning these resources to sub-administrators while retaining overall control.
HPE XP P9000 Resource Partition Software is ideal for a multi-tenant environment set up where dedicated sub-administrators need to manage the IT infrastructure needs of their respective business units. At the same time, it allows the datacenter administrator retain complete control of XP P9500 Storage resources. Datacenter administrators can decide to partition XP P9500 Storage resources either at a logical level to improve storage utilization efficiency or at a physical level to improve quality of service and avoid data and access breaches across multiple tenants.

Hitachi FlashCopy Mirroring for Mainframe enhances data availability for mainframe data and improves productivity by providing IBM FlashCopy compatible point-in-time copies within an 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 Hitachi Extended Remote Copy for Mainframe.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager Software is a plug-in application for HPE XP Command View Advanced Edition Software. It enables you to quickly connect an HPE XP Disk Array to a host server and make the storage ready for use. It simplifies each step of the process: carving raw disk storage into manageable logical devices (LDEV's), allocating LDEV's to host servers, creating a device file, creating a file system, and mounting the resulting block to a file system.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager enables you to integrate and manage your HPE XP Disk Array storage as a logical storage pool. By presenting the volumes associated with each resource group as a single logical volume, HPE XP Provisioning Manager lets you manage these volumes regardless of where they actually reside. This reduces the workload required to monitor and maintain the various volumes.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager provides transaction logs to help you quickly resolve file system and device management problems.
HPE XP Tiered Storage Manager Software is a plug-in application for HPE XP Command View Advanced Edition Software. It allows you to non-disruptively migrate HPE XP Disk Array data between tiers of storage while your applications remain on line. You can match key user quality of service requirements, like cost, performance and data protection level, to the storage attributes of HPE XP Disk Array controlled storage. HPE XP Tiered Storage Manager Software works not only with internal HPE XP Disk Array data, but also with External Storage, such as an MSA or EVA, connected to the HPE XP Disk Array.
HPE XP 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.
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.
Store and manage mainframe and open systems data on a single HPE XP P9500 Storage. HPE XP P9000 Data Exchange Software allows seamless data exchange between mainframe and open systems hosts. It provides management of data format and code conversions, and allows information sharing across computing platforms. It supports HP-UX, Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX and mainframe operating systems.
HPE XP P9000 DKA Encryption Software enables the encryption capability for all the data that is stored on the internal drives of the HPE XP P9500 Storage. The Enhanced DKA encrypts the data on disk drives so that data cannot be read off a disk drive that is removed from the HPE XP P9500 Storage. Only data on the disk drives is encrypted (data in cache is not encrypted).
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.
