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 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.
HPE 3PAR StoreServ Data at Rest Encryption protects data from security breaches. If your application or environment requires data protection from loss of a drive or unauthorized exposure of the data on a drive, then consider this solution. This solution is configured with self-encrypting drives (SEDs) and a secure encryption key. A single array-based Local Key Manager (LKM) authenticates access to the data being read or written to the drives, with no performance impact. An optional External Key Manager (EKM) provides a complete security solution for unifying and automating an organization's encryption controls by securely creating, protecting, serving, controlling, and auditing the encryption keys, both locally and remotely. All HPE 3PAR StoreServ models are available with self-encrypting drives where data is encrypted as it is written to the drive. All data contained on these drives is protected against unauthorized access, including media or hardware theft, tampering, and more.1
Developed and integrated into the open-source cloud platform, HPE OpenStack for 3PAR StoreServ and StoreVirtual Software provides simplified cloud management with all-inclusive enterprise class storage features in both Cinder (block) and Manila (file) OpenStack drivers. Efficiently and simply deploy and manage true convergence of block, file and object access with 3PAR StoreServ. With Tier 1 Storage and best-in-class service levels, 3PAR StoreServ delivers robust cloud performance. For agile and simple scale out storage, StoreVirtual VSA provides complete array functionality on top of Linux KVM/ESXi environments without external array hardware. Leverage your existing x86-based hardware and transform your internal or direct attached storage into fully featured share storage arrays.
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.
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.
Are you looking for extreme high availability for your most critical HPE XP7 Storage applications?
HPE XP7 High Availability Software is an Active-Active high availability solution offering on HPE XP7 Storage. The high availability (HA) feature is implemented based on the XP7 Multi-Array Virtualization capability supporting two use cases: Active-Active HA and Active-Active Access.
Active-Active HA provides almost 100% storage up-time even when an array and/or entire data center goes offline. Active-Active Access provides non-disruptive, transparent VM and/or clustered application manageability between hosts or servers at the same or different sites. HA can be combined with any of the other traditional mirroring program products like Business Copy and Fast Snap to make additional copies. HA requires a Quorum device located in an external storage device.
Are you looking for ways to improve the efficiency of your storage IT staff? HPE XP7 Automation Director software is the answer to unlocking the full potential of your team. It utilizes a service delivery automation engine that catalogs routine and repetitive tasks, as well as advanced processes, for quick, repeatable, and predictable storage service delivery. This software enables an innovative approach to storage infrastructure management. Automatically or with a few clicks of the mouse, quickly provision, replicate, analyze, and customize your environment. It comes with a service catalog of pre-optimized templates using proven best practices. Templates are customizable using Service Builder to tune for your workloads, such as SAP®, Microsoft®, Oracle®, OpenStack®, and VMware®. Intelligent automation with HPE XP7 Automation Director software simplifies storage infrastructure management, improves productivity, reduces cost, and frees up resources for strategic innovation.
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.
