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.
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.

P6000 Performance Advisor software provides advanced reporting and charting options to define and monitor key performance indicators. It also has the ability to generate customized reports with multiple charting options, which can help troubleshoot performance issues.
Have you been foregoing the benefits of multi-pathing due to cost, complexity, or limited operability?
HPE 3PAR MPIO Software for Microsoft Windows delivers a highly available, robust, and trouble-free multi-pathing solution for Microsoft Windows 2003 environments. With MPIO for Windows, I/O is intelligently routed through multiple paths between a host server and the HPE 3PAR Storage System for greater availability and load balancing. This solution is designed to utilize all available paths to prevent overloading of any single path and the accumulation of I/O bottlenecks. MPIO Software for Windows accomplishes this through a combination of autonomic load balancing, path failover capabilities, and ease of management. In the event of a path failure, MPIO for Windows routes data to an alternate path to prevent application disruption. Simple administration and affordability make MPIO for Windows an ideal solution for enhancing performance and reliability in Microsoft Windows environments.
Do you need to assure quality of service for mission critical applications?
HPE 3PAR Priority Optimization Software enables service levels for applications and workloads as business requirements dictate. Provision storage performance as you provision storage capacity. Create SLAs to protect mission critical applications in enterprise environments by assigning a minimum goal for I/O per second, bandwidth and latency. Performance for that specific tenant or application is assured. Or assign performance caps on workloads with lower service level requirements. Enable predictability for all applications and tenants.
Configure service level objectives on a Virtual Volume Set or between different Virtual Domains. A Virtual Volume Set may contain a single volume or multiple volumes. A Virtual Volume may also belong to multiple Virtual Volume Sets allowing users to create hierarchical rules. All host I/O on the VVset is monitored and measured against the Service Level objective.

Offering innovative diagnostic, monitoring, and management capabilities, Fabric Vision Software helps administrators address problems before they impact operations, accelerate new application deployments, and dramatically reduce operational costs
HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Software provides real-time array-to-array data replication for the HPE XP P9500 Storage. The software is part of the HPE comprehensive suite of business continuity and availability solutions that enable you to maintain constant access to your data, even if access to a site is lost. HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Software products are integrated with server clustering software solutions to provide the highest levels of availability and disaster tolerance. To protect your business from disasters of any size, whether local or wide-area, you can create three Data Center disaster recovery solutions, with one data center located a continent away. If you simply need to move data from one location to another, or from one generation of HPE XP P9500 Storage to another, HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Software provides a reliable high-performance data migration solution.
Is your data protection solution causing your Exchange/SQL administrative costs to spiral out of control?
HPE Recovery Manager Software for Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SQL Server eases administration by providing efficient online backup and recovery of entire Microsoft Exchange Server/SQL databases from multiple, highly granular points in time. Recovery Manager intelligently creates and manages highly granular and capacity-efficient Exchange/SQL database aware snapshots. These snapshots can then be used to quickly restore Exchange/SQL instances or databases, or to non-disruptively back them up to tape for near-continuous data protection. Since Recovery Manager is built on HPE P2000 G3 Snapshot software multiple snapshots can be kept online economically, allowing for extended or frequent Exchange/SQL database recovery points.
Do you want to implement a shared, federated IT infrastructure across your data centers?
HPE 3PAR Peer Persistence Software allows you to break the boundaries of storage, enabling your hosts, and data to move freely across data centers without impacting your business applications. Implement a true cloud solution, where storage resources are shared across data centers, and are not constrained by their physical boundaries.
Peer Persistence enables 3PAR StoreServ systems located at metropolitan distances to act as peers to each other, presenting a nearly continuous storage system to hosts and servers connected to them. This capability, certified for vMSC environments, allows customers to configure a high-availability solution between two sites or data centers where switchover and switchback remains transparent to the hosts and applications running on those hosts. This secures business continuity without impacting performance and enables load balancing across systems and sites.
