Are you looking to improve the efficiency of your tape automation infrastructure?
HPE StoreEver Management Software provides an easy-to-use interface for efficiently managing, monitoring and configuring an entire tape library environment. The HPE StoreEver Management Software suite is made up of HPE Command View for Tape Libraries (CVTL), HPE StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced and HPE StoreEver Data Verification. CVTL provides the centralized platform for TapeAssure Advanced reporting and Data Verification analysis, along with remote management, diagnostics and configuration for all MSL Tape Libraries from across the room or across the globe. HPE StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced provides predictive, analytical reporting of health and performance information for all drives and cartridges. HPE StoreEver Data Verification Software proactively validates and scans, non-disruptively, the quality of data stored on LTO tape cartridges, which ensures the successful retrieval of critical business data.
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.
As businesses strive to improve operational efficiency, consolidation of servers and storage becomes an attractive option. HPE XP Disk/Cache Partition Software enables storage administrators in large consolidated storage environments to host multiple diverse user groups on one XP Disk Array while maintaining appropriate isolation between applications. XP Disk/Cache Partition enables you to divide your XP Disk Array into multiple, independent partitions, with each partition having its own host ports, disk parity groups and cache. Applications that would normally compete for resources can share a single disk array without impacting each other. Departments can share a single XP disk array confident that administrators cannot affect portions of the disk array that belong to someone else.
XP Disk/Cache Partition Software allows companies to consolidate a variety of online storage needs onto one central XP disk array.
What I can do to improve the capacity efficiency of my legacy storage volumes without complex data migration or professional services?
HPE 3PAR Thin Conversion Software leverages the zero-detection capabilities within the HPE 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to drive the conversion of inefficient, “fat” volumes on legacy arrays to more efficient, higher utilization “thin” volumes on HPE 3PAR Storage Systems. This “thinning” of volumes enables data centers to meet Green IT targets, eliminate wasted space, and increase utilization rates. Because the fat-to-thin conversion mechanism is built into array hardware, volume conversions take place inline, at wire speeds, while preserving service levels, and without disruption to production workloads. With Thin Conversion, a technology refresh no longer requires a terabyte-for-terabyte replacement, but instead offers the opportunity to reduce capacity requirements by 50 percent or more without the need to invest in professional services.
What good are thin provisioning savings if they can’t be preserved over time?
An industry first, HPE 3PAR Thin Persistence Software means that thin volumes on the HPE 3PAR Storage System stay as lean and efficient as possible by leveraging the HPE 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to reclaim unused space associated with deleted data—simply, quickly, and non-disruptively. Writing and deleting large amounts of data can leave unused space within thin volumes. Even lots of small writes and deletions can eventually reduce the efficiency of thin volumes. This logical deletion of data without actually freeing up unused space creates a hidden utilization penalty that can really add up over time. HPE 3PAR Thin Persistence Software reclaims this unused space to increase capacity efficiency, keep costs down, and help defer the purchase of additional capacity to handle new data growth. Thin Persistence also helps enterprises maintain sustainability targets by keeping down data center power and cooling needs.
Do you have storage pools that aren’t really efficient?
HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software solves the problem of inefficient capacity utilization by breaking the traditional linkage between allocated and purchased capacity. Demand for thin provisioning solutions combined with increased attention to data center power consumption has put pressure on vendors to introduce thin provisioning solutions, but bolt-on implementations can’t deliver the simplicity or the efficiency of Thin Provisioning.
With HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning, capacity is dedicated and configured autonomically, just-in-time, and without active management. Rather than create separate pools of storage, the software creates one pool from which capacity is dedicated only as data is actually written. And while other thin provisioning implementations use coarse allocation units that can range from 1 MB to 17 GB, HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning uses a fine-grained, 16 KB allocation unit to increase system efficiency.
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.
HPE StoreFront Analytics integrates directly into VMware vRealize Log Insight through dashboards and custom fields specific to HPE storage. This dashboard allows VMware vSphere administrators to quickly view storage logs and errors and allows to easier troubleshoot scenarios that span across virtual and physical layers, which includes the HPE 3PAR StoreServ layer.
By actively analyzing and providing alerts of virtual machines, datastores and storage, the VMware vSphere administrator's productivity increases, as does the ability to rapidly identify and troubleshoot potential problems and ensure consistent, predictable quality of service.
Is your data protection solution causing your Exchange administrative costs to spiral out of control? HPE 3PAR Application Suite for Microsoft Exchange is an efficient solution that eases administration by providing rapid, efficient online backup and recovery of entire Microsoft Exchange databases or even individual emails. This package enhances the functionality of HPE 3PAR Virtual Copy Software to allow dozens of Exchange snapshots to kept online economically allowing for extended or frequent recovery points. With an easy-to-use graphical user interface these snapshots can then be used to quickly restore Exchange instances or databases, or to non-disruptively back them up to tape for near-continuous data protection.
The Application Suite for Microsoft Exchange intelligently creates and manages highly granular and capacity-efficient Exchange-aware snapshots that can be used to make a variety of scenarios simpler and more efficient.
