HPE XP P9000 for Business Continuity Manager Software enhances productivity by centralizing and simplifying management of HPE XP P9500 Storage local and remote replication functionality in mainframe environments. It provides simplified and centralized enterprise-wide management of the XP P9500 Storage based mainframe replication capabilities provided by HPE XP P9000 Business Copy for Mainframe, HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe, and HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe. By automating configuration and disaster recovery tasks, Business Continuity Manager reduces human error, saves time, and improves data availability. For additional efficiency, Business Continuity Manager provides scripting capability and group control commands, allowing administrators to manage multiple volumes easily. Through a linkage with XP P9000 Replication Manager Software, mainframe replication information can be displayed by XP P9000 Command View Advanced Edition Software.
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.
Hitachi FlashCopy Mirroring for Mainframe enhances data availability for mainframe data and improves productivity by providing IBM FlashCopy compatible point-in-time copies within an XP disk array. As soon as a copy is created, it becomes available for use. The copy can be either virtual or physical. If a virtual copy is specified, it remains a pointer-based copy that only saves the changes from the original. However, if a physical copy is specified, a full copy will be completed in the background while both the source and the copy remain available for access.
For additional availability, FlashCopy can be combined with Hitachi ShadowImage for Mainframe, Hitachi TrueCopy for Mainframe, Hitachi Universal Replicator for Mainframe, and Hitachi Extended Remote Copy for Mainframe.
As businesses strive to improve operational efficiency, consolidation of servers and storage becomes an attractive option. HPE XP Disk/Cache Partition Software enables storage administrators in large consolidated storage environments to host multiple diverse user groups on one XP Disk Array while maintaining appropriate isolation between applications. XP Disk/Cache Partition enables you to divide your XP Disk Array into multiple, independent partitions, with each partition having its own host ports, disk parity groups and cache. Applications that would normally compete for resources can share a single disk array without impacting each other. Departments can share a single XP disk array confident that administrators cannot affect portions of the disk array that belong to someone else.
XP Disk/Cache Partition Software allows companies to consolidate a variety of online storage needs onto one central XP disk array.
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.
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.
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.
Do you want the ability to replicate data to remote locations more efficiently and cost effectively? HPE 3PAR Remote Copy Software provides enterprise and cloud data centers with autonomic replication and Tier1 disaster recovery technology that allows the protection and sharing of data from any application simply, efficiently, and affordably.
Remote Copy Software dramatically reduces the cost of remote data replication and disaster recovery by leveraging thin copy technology and enabling replication with midrange, all-flash, and high-end arrays to deliver unique cost efficiencies for protecting a broader set of applications. Set up and test in minutes, reducing the need for professional services.
With support for Synchronous, Asynchronous Periodic and multi-site, Synchronous Long Distance replication, 3PAR Remote Copy delivers a rich portfolio of replication options for customers to achieve stringent recovery time objectives (RTO) and fast recovery point objectives (RPOs).
