High Performance FICON for system z or zHPF is an enhancement of the FICON channel architecture, which also means compatibility with certain standards such as Fibre Channel Physical and Signaling standard (FC-FS), Fibre Channel Switch Fabric and Switch Control Requirements (FC-SW), and Fibre Channel Single-Byte-4 (FC-SB-4) standards. Enhancements have been made to the z/Architecture® and the FICON interface architecture to deliver improvements for online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads. zHPF is implemented exclusively in System z10. When High Performance FICON is exploited by the FICON channel, the z/OS operating system, and the control unit, the FICON channel overhead will be reduced. This is achieved by simplification of the protocol, and by reducing the number of information units processed, resulting in more efficient use of the fiber link.
HPE XP P9000 Performance Advisor identifies performance bottlenecks before they impact your business. It collects and displays performance data for HPE XP P9500 and XP Disk Arrays. It helps mitigate risk by providing performance alarm notification through email, SNMP, or user-defined scripts and helps avoid impending outages due to unavailable or misallocated storage resources. Its report generation and scheduling capability improves IT processes and maintains array performance by immediately identifying storage bottlenecks.
Performance Advisor reduces complexity and accelerates resolution of problems by collecting information from multiple arrays across multiple sites, and allows you to drill down to the problem area. Its ability to collect up to 320 GB of historical data enables detailed trend analysis and makes it easier to analyze performance data at regular intervals. Its rich Command-Line User interface (CLUI) supports integration with third party software.
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.
HPE XP P9000 for FlashCopy Mirroring Software enhances data availability for mainframe data and improves productivity by providing IBM FlashCopy compatible point-in-time copies within an HPE XP P9500 Storage. 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 Business Copy for Mainframe, Continuous Access Synchronous for Mainframe, Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe, and HPE XP P9000 for Compatible Extended Remote Copy.
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.
Store and manage mainframe and open systems data on a single HPE XP Disk Array. HPE XP Data Exchange Software allows seamless data exchange between mainframe and open systems hosts. It provides management of data format and code conversions, and allows information sharing across computing platforms. It supports HP-UX, Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX, and mainframe operating systems.
