Do you want to optimize service levels effortlessly, on a large scale, and for a lower total cost than other solutions?
The HPE 3PAR Adaptive Optimization Software is a granular, policy-driven, autonomic storage tiering solution that delivers service level optimization for virtual and cloud data centers to reduce cost while increasing agility and minimizing risk. Adaptive Optimization Software delivers the next generation in autonomic storage tiering by taking a fine-grained, highly automated approach to service level optimization. Policy-driven, granular data movement takes place autonomically, providing highly reliable, non-disruptive, cost-optimized storage tiering at the sub-volume level to deliver the right QoS to the right data at the right time on a large scale.
HPE 3PAR System Tuner Software spreads volumes evenly and widely across all available resources so that HPE 3PAR Storage can deliver balanced performance. However, as the storage system scales and new applications come online, new access patterns may emerge that result in sub-optimal performance levels.
HPE 3PAR System Tuner Software autonomically and non-disruptively detects potential bottlenecks and hotspots then rebalances volumes to maintain peak performance without impacting service levels or changing pre-existing service level characteristics such as RAID level.
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.
Are security and performance concerns standing in the way of infrastructure consolidation? HPE 3PAR Virtual Domains Software is technology capable of providing thousands of secure “virtual private arrays” within a single, massively-scalable HPE 3PAR Storage system.
By providing secure administrative segregation of users, hosts, and application data, Virtual Domains allows hosting providers to deliver virtual private array services and enterprise IT organizations to deliver “self-service” storage that is both secure and capable of high quality-of-service levels. Through consolidation onto the massively parallel and dynamically-tiered 3PAR Storage, individual user groups and applications achieve greater storage service levels (performance, availability, and functionality) than pre-consolidation levels with less infrastructure.
Virtual Domains is ideal for both internal and external storage service providers, and for any enterprise deploying a converged infrastructure.
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.
Does your storage environment require granular and centralized outbound and remote services policy administration?
With HPE 3PAR Policy Manager Software, customers have the ultimate flexibility and control to allow or deny outbound communications or remote service connections to and from HPE 3PAR Storage Systems at the customer site. Policy Manager enables customers to define and implement remote service access policies. Policy configurations are managed by the customer, ensuring integrity of customer-configured remote access policies. To ensure limited access, Policy Manager is installed on a customer-provided server.
Policy Manager also serves as the centralized point for collecting and storing audit logs of all diagnostic data transfers and authorized remote service connections to and from all devices managed by the software. Since policies are administered by the customer, the audit logs are a trusted source for reporting and compliance.
Supported across all HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage platforms, HPE 3PAR Operating System Software utilizes advanced internal virtualization capabilities, features, and tools to increase storage management efficiency, capacity utilization, and performance in enterprise and cloud data centers. The OS simplifies storage management by handling provisioning and change management autonomically, intelligently, at a subsystem level, and without administrator intervention.
Autonomic provisioning features eliminate traditional storage planning by delivering instant, application-tailored provisioning. Fine-grained virtualization of lower-level components and wide striping of data ensure that service levels remain high and predictable, even as the use of the system grows or in the event of a component failure. Industry leading ease of use is delivered through the simple, unified HPE 3PAR Management Console and the powerful, scriptable HPE 3PAR Command Line Interface (CLI).
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.
Is your organization looking to implement stricter data governance practices, or do you need to protect data from deletion to facilitate electronic discovery (eDiscovery)? HPE 3PAR Virtual Lock Software is designed to help HPE 3PAR Utility Storage customers meet data governance and eDiscovery needs more efficiently and flexibly than with existing storage products.
Virtual Lock Software gives users the ability to protect data volumes and volume copies from intentional or unintentional deletions. During the user-specified retention period, volumes and copies can be read but are protected against deletion, even by an administrator with the highest level user privileges.
Virtual Lock Software is “thin-aware,” so it works on both standard and thin provisioned storage volumes copies, and is completely compatible with HPE 3PAR Virtual Copy Software, HPE 3PAR Remote Copy Software, and HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software.
