High Performance FICON for system z or zHPF is an enhancement of the FICON channel architecture; which also means compatibility with certain standards such as Fibre Channel Physical and Signaling standard (FC-FS), Fibre Channel Switch Fabric and Switch Control Requirements (FC-SW), and Fibre Channel Single-Byte-4 (FC-SB-4) standards. Enhancements have been made to the z/Architecture® and the FICON interface architecture to deliver improvements for online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads. zHPF is implemented exclusively in System z10. When High Performance FICON is exploited by the FICON channel, the z/OS operating system, and the control unit; the FICON channel overhead will be reduced. This is achieved by simplification of the protocol, and by reducing the number of information units processed, resulting in more efficient use of the fiber link.

These snapshots can be used to quickly restore SQL databases or non-disruptively backup databases to tape for near-continuous data protection. Scores of snapshots can be kept online economically, allowing extended or frequent recovery points. Unlike host-based backup solutions where the time to backup is proportional to the database size, Application Suite for Microsoft SQL creates snapshots instantaneously, irrespective of database size.
HPE XP Performance Advisor Software identifies performance bottlenecks before they impact your business. It collects and displays performance data for HPE XP Disk Arrays. It helps mitigate risk by providing performance alarm notification through email, SNMP, or user-defined scripts and helps avoid impending outages due to unavailable or misallocated storage resources. Its report generation and scheduling capability improves IT processes and maintains array performance by immediately identifying storage bottlenecks.
XP Performance Advisor reduces complexity and accelerates resolution of problems by collecting information from multiple arrays across multiple sites, and allows you to drill down to the problem area. Its ability to collect up to 320 GB of historical data enables detailed trend analysis and makes it easier to analyze performance data at regular intervals. Its rich Command-Line User interface (CLUI) supports integration with third party software.
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.
