The HPE StoreFront Analytics software provides customers using HPE 3PAR StoreServ/StoreVirtual storage with operational dashboards to gain deep insights and visibility into the health, risk and efficiency of the storage infrastructure’s performance and capacity capabilities.
HPE StoreFront Analytics integrates directly into VMware vRealize Operations Manager through an additional dashboard specific to HPE storage. This dashboard allows VMware vSphere administrators to quickly view storage capacity, performance metrics, health information and allows to easier troubleshoot scenarios that span across virtual and physical layers, which includes the HPE 3PAR StoreServ and HPE StoreVirtual storage layer.
By actively analyzing and providing alerts on the health of the 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.
Do you need to exchange data between your HPE XP7 Storage systems and mainframes?
HPE XP7 Data Exchange Software gives you the ability to seamlessly exchange data between mainframe and open systems hosts. Store and manage mainframe and open systems data on a single XP7 Storage system. It provides management of data format and code conversions, and allows information sharing across computing platforms. HPE XP7 Data Exchange Software supports HP-UX, Windows®, Linux®, Oracle® Solaris, IBM AIX®, and mainframe operating systems.
Do you need to increase the performance between FICON® links and your networked data storage?
The HPE XP7 Compatible High Performance FICON Connectivity Software provides FICON for System z® or zHPF and is an enhancement of the FICON channel architecture. It delivers compatibility with standards such as Fibre Channel (FC) Physical and Signaling Standard (FC-FS), FC Switch Fabric and Switch Control Requirements (FC-SW), and FC Single-Byte-4 (FC-SB-4) standards. Enhancements have been made to the z/Architecture® and the FICON interface to deliver improvements for online transaction processing (OLTP). zHPF is implemented exclusively in System z10®. When XP7 Compatible High Performance FICON Connectivity Software is exploited by the FICON channel, the z/OS® Operating System, and the control unit; the FICON channel overhead will be reduced. Simplification of the protocol reduces the number of information units processed, resulting in more efficient use of the fiber link.
Do you need to simplify your storage environment to enable growth and reduce complexity?
Then HPE XP7 Intelligent Storage Manager is the application you need. HPE XP7 Intelligent Storage Manager is a configuration management tool that reduces the complexity of managing HPE XP storage systems. HPE XP7 Intelligent Storage Manager’s intuitive Graphical User Interface enables a short learning curve, and gives users at-a-glance status of XP storage resources. Built-in configuration intelligence provides best-practice recommendations to help users simplify deployment, management, and maintenance. Quickly and easily create parity groups, pools, and volumes, then set replication policies for up to 50 XP storage systems. Intelligent Storage Manager reduces complexity and the effort required to manage storage resources, allowing for more time to focus on strategic revenue generating initiatives.
Would you like to visualize, manage, and analyze SAN performance and overall operational health intelligently?
As organizations race to modernize the data center to support innovation and digital transformation, storage networks are evolving faster to accommodate the new applications. Administrators, therefore, need ways to visualize and manage SAN health and performance efficiently. HPE SANnav Management Software is the next-gen SAN management application suite for HPE B-series Fibre Channel SAN environments. It consists of SANnav Management Portal Software and SANnav Global View Software. SANnav Management Portal builds the foundation for an autonomous SAN with a modernized and simple browser-based UI to monitor and streamline common workflows, such as configuration, zoning, deployment, troubleshooting, and reporting. SANnav Global View enables visualization of health, performance, and inventory of multiple SANnav Management Portal instances using a simple yet intelligent dashboard.
Storage Area Networks and the tools that are used to manage them have become increasingly complex. SAN administrators spend more time in configuration tasks – tedious manual activities which can potentially result in unplanned downtime. The reasons for the complexity include the increased adoption of Virtualization – a complexity stemming from mapping the virtual and physical layers of the SAN and the adoption of multiple protocols - iSCSI, FC and FCoE.
HPE Smart SAN for 3PAR makes SAN configuration and management simple and error-free through intelligent automation. It is a protocol agnostic application embedded in SAN components that enables the 3PAR to orchestrate configuration, settings and policies in a HPE StoreFabric SAN. HPE Smart SAN’s Target Driven Peer Zoning enables you to configure zones accurately in minutes and not in hours and its automatic discovery mechanism creates a powerful platform which would enable real-time diagnostics and SAN analysis for more resiliency.
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.
