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.
The HPE Secure Manager for Tape Libraries software advanced feature option provides secure, device-level access, virtual library partitions, and configuration flexibility designed for SAN environments. As a component of HPE Command View for Tape Libraries (CV-TL), it provides centralized, web-based management for HPE ESL9000 and ESL E-Series enterprise class tape libraries, increases reliability and robustness of tape libraries in the SAN, and integrates with leading enterprise management applications.
Secure Manager for Tape Libraries allows system administrators to design reliability and security into backup SAN environments, providing backup security against extraneous SAN events and protecting host servers with the benefit of simplified SAN management. Virtual library partitions provide security between separated SAN environments.
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.
Are you dealing with error-prone and time consuming manual provisioning and management of storage? HPE Storage Software Development Kits simplifies automation of HPE 3PAR Storage management tasks including provisioning, monitoring, metrics reporting from configuration management tools and programming languages such as Python and Ruby. To have a public cloud like agility, automation of infrastructure tasks are a must. Manual provisioning and management of storage arrays can be complex, time consuming and error prone. The HPE Storage Software Development Kits provides developers and administrators with easy-to-use functions in native programming languages and significantly reduces the amount of coding required for automating simple and complex storage management tasks. Now storage management can be streamlined by reducing manual storage provisioning and monitoring and reducing human errors that can result from manual operations.
HPE StoreOpen Software for LTFS has simplified the process of using linear tape file system (LTFS) making it easier to leverage this technology. LTFS makes tape self-describing, file-based, easy-to-use, and provides users with the ability to use standard file operations on tape media for accessing, managing, and sharing files with an interface that behaves just like a hard disk. HPE StoreOpen Software for LTFS provides a native GUI with a familiar look and feel to help LTFS users on Windows® and macOS to mount and use LTFS volumes. Linux® users access all LTFS functionality through easy-to-use command line tools.
Are you looking for a way to reliably protect your business critical applications without impacting performance? Are you looking to derive more value out of your secondary data copies? HPE Recovery Manager Central (RMC) software facilitates policy-driven, converged data protection and copy data management for your business critical applications at speeds required for all-flash storage. RMC integrates HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage All Flash Arrays with HPE StoreOnce Systems, leveraging snapshot performance with storage-integrated backups to deliver flash speed application protection and copy data management with less cost and complexity than legacy solutions. RMC is also built for cloud, allowing you to leverage public cloud for cost-effective long term retention of your backups.
HPE XP P9000 Auto LUN Software provides automatic monitoring and load balancing for your HPE XP P9500 Storage. It makes the most efficient use of your disk arrays by moving high-priority tasks to underutilized volumes, replicating volumes for backup and recovery, and viewing the health of your arrays. You set performance goals and limits, and XP P9000 Auto LUN does the rest. It proposes a migration plan and estimates how much your storage performance will improve when it's done. XP P9000 Auto LUN lets you evaluate disk array usage and determine whether resources are overloaded or out of balance. Use its easy-to-follow menus to define when data is collected and arrays are monitored. Use up to 90 days of stored historical data to spot trends and create up-to-the-minute reports. You can export data to a spreadsheet for further analysis. If resources are overloaded, XP P9000 Auto LUN Software will create a plan to move volumes, then stands by for your approval to make changes.
HPE 3PAR Thin Suite offers the industry’s most comprehensive tools for thin storage. Thin Suite combines industry-leading HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning, Thin Conversion, and Thin Persistence Software in a single suite. HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software increases storage system efficiency and optimizes capacity utilization. It does this by addressing the problem of capacity over-allocation through eliminating the need to dedicate storage capacity up-front. With HPE 3PAR Thin Conversion Software, a technology refresh now offers the opportunity to reduce capacity requirements by up to 60 percent – simply and rapidly. HPE 3PAR Thin Persistence Software ensures that thin volumes on HPE 3PAR Storage System stay as lean and efficient as possible by reclaiming unused space associated with deleted data. Thin Suite enables users to not only save money on up-front capacity purchases, but to remain cost- and energy-efficient over time by ensuring that thin storage stays thin.
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.
