HPE XP for Business Continuity Manager Software enhances productivity by centralizing and simplifying management of XP disk array local and remote replication functionality in mainframe environments. Business Continuity Manager manages Hitachi ShadowImage for Mainframe, Hitachi TrueCopy for Mainframe, Hitachi TrueCopy Async for Mainframe, and Hitachi Universal Replicator for Mainframe. By automating configuration and disaster recovery tasks, Business Continuity Manger reduces human error, saves time, and improves data availability. For additional efficiency, Business Continuity Manager provides a scripting capability and group control commands, allowing administrators to manage multiple volumes easily. Through a linkage with HPE XP Replication Monitor Software, mainframe replication information can be displayed by HPE XP Command View Advanced Edition Software.
HPE XP for Compatible Parallel Access Volumes Software (PAV) and HPE XP for Compatible Hyper PAV Software enable high performance concurrent access of mainframe volumes by permitting a mainframe host system to issue multiple I/O requests in parallel to individual logical devices within the HPE XP Disk Array. Without PAV, mainframe systems can initiate only one I/O request per device at a time, and must wait for the I/O to complete before starting another I/O request to the same device. By utilizing alias addresses that all point to the same device as the base address, PAV enables the host system to start several I/O requests simultaneously to the same device, thus greatly improving performance.
The XP Disk Array supports static PAV, dynamic PAV, and Hyper PAV. With static PAV, the number of aliases assigned to each base device does not change. With dynamic PAV, high workload base devices can borrow idle PAV aliases from other base devices, increasing their I/O capability.
HPE EVA Dynamic Capacity Management Software (DCM) provides a comprehensive solution that automates storage provisioning and improves capacity utilization for the HPE Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA) family. DCM Software uses advanced automation to “right-size” the supported file system and the EVA virtual disk (Vdisk) storage volume to the needs of an application. This dramatically improves capacity utilization by allowing the administrator to simply specify a capacity utilization range for each Vdisk.
Configuring EVA DCM Software policies takes just seconds with its effortless wizards and advanced automation. The simple "set and forget" provisioning not only reduces the resource cost of ongoing storage provisioning, but also allows for the potential postponement of additional capacity purchases due to increased storage utilization. This reduces the operational costs of powering and cooling unnecessary storage while lowering the enterprise's carbon footprint.
HPE XP P9000 for Compatible Extended Remote Copy (XRC) Software provides disaster protection and data migration capability for data stored on an HPE XP P9500 Storage by implementing IBM mainframe compatible asynchronous remote replication. XP P9000 XRC provides the same functionality as IBM Extended Remote Copy (now called IBM TotalStorage z/OS Global Mirror), and is compatible with System Data Mover (SDM) mainframe software. When data is written to the local HPE XP P9500 Storage, XRC temporarily stores a time stamped copy of it in a side file. SDM in one of the mainframe hosts asynchronously reads the side file data from the local XP P9500 Storage and then writes the data to the remote disk array.
XRC can be combined with other XP P9500 Storage replication products for additional availability. When combined with XP P9000 Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe, XRC supports three Data Center disaster recovery solutions.
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.
Would you like to simplify the management and backup of your Oracle database?
HPE 3PAR Application Suite for Oracle is a highly efficient solution for automatically creating and managing hundreds of application-consistent, reservationless, point-in-time snapshots of Oracle and Oracle RAC databases for rapid online recovery. These snapshot images are then presentable to other Oracle database instances, managed from an easy-to-use graphical user interface on the host. With HPE 3PAR Application Suite for Oracle, administrators can quickly and simply recover a database to a known point in time, speeding up a variety of operations including the rapid recovery of the Oracle production server. Integration with Oracle Active Data Guard enables snapshots to be taken on standby databases, thus minimizing impact to the production database. Fast, reliable backup and recovery to tape is made possible through integration with Symantec NetBackup.
Developed and integrated into the open-source cloud platform, HPE OpenStack for 3PAR StoreServ and StoreVirtual Software provides simplified cloud management with all-inclusive enterprise class storage features in both Cinder (block) and Manila (file) OpenStack drivers. Efficiently and simply deploy and manage true convergence of block, file and object access with 3PAR StoreServ. With Tier 1 Storage and best-in-class service levels, 3PAR StoreServ delivers robust cloud performance. For agile and simple scale out storage, StoreVirtual VSA provides complete array functionality on top of Linux KVM/ESXi environments without external array hardware. Leverage your existing x86-based hardware and transform your internal or direct attached storage into fully featured share storage arrays.
Containers enable portability, agility and accelerated application delivery. Stateful and mission-critical containerized applications require reliable data storage with high performance and availability. The integration of HPE 3PAR with Docker, Kubernetes, Red Hat OpenShift, Mesos and SuSE CaaS enables self-service dynamic storage provisioning, QoS, multi-tenancy, snapshots, clones, replication of data volumes on a highly available storage platform.The integration also enables migrating legacy data volumes into containers paving way for modernizing traditional workloads with containers. The IT Ops teams can deliver multi-tenant Container-as-a-Service (CaaS) offerings for tenants to on-board workloads with clear separation of data enabled by Virtual domains. The integration is made possible with HPE 3PAR Volume Plug-in for Docker, HPE FlexVolume driver and dynamic provisioner for Kubernetes. HPE 3PAR is Docker certified and a Red Hat OpenShift Primed partner.
Managing a virtualized infrastructure can be a daunting task considering the sheer amount of data, innumerable tasks, virtual and physical asset management, and simultaneous processes handled each day. It can prove to be an overwhelming challenge to oversee, maintain, and manage all your virtual machines (VMs), especially when you need to use multiple separate consoles for each operation. What if you could know exactly what was going on in your VMware® environment? HPE Storage Plug-Ins for VMware can provide you with the insight you need to manage your physical storage resources inside of your native and familiar VMware management tools. HPE Storage Plug-Ins for VMware provide value added management, monitoring, and automation integration for VMware environments through VMware® vCenter™ and VMware vRealize plug-ins that manage HPE Storage systems.
