HPE XP Replication Manager Software enables you to create, manage, and maintain HPE XP Disk Array replication pairs. It provides centralized management of replication applications, decreases storage administration complexity, increases productivity, and improves service levels by providing a single enterprise view of the replication environment. It allows you to view replication status graphically in real time, improving your efficiency.
In addition to replication status, HPE XP Replication Manager Software also provides early warning of impending problems. It eliminates tedious data entry that can cause outages and simplifies difficult replication tasks. And it reduces costs and training expenses associated with replication management.
Don't you want to manage your B-series hardware seamlessly?
HPE B-series SAN Network Advisor Software and HPE B-series Data Center Fabric Manager Software (DCFM) provide comprehensive management of data center fabrics -- including configuration, monitoring, and management of all B-series Directors, Switches and HBAs.
HPE B-series SAN Network Advisor Software uses an intelligent dashboard that presents an at-a-glance summary of all discovered B-series and third-party IP devices, including inventory and event summary information. It provides support for Fibre Channel (FC) SANs with configuration, zoning, and visualization capabilities, including HBA, storage, SAN fabric, and Layer 2 switch topology views.
HPE B-series DCFM Software provides management of multiple 4 Gb and 8 Gb B-series Directors, Switches, and HBAs. By measuring and displaying network performance, and provides the essential functions for efficiently configuring, monitoring, and dynamic provisioning SAN fabrics.
HPE EVA Dynamic Capacity Management Software (DCM) provides a comprehensive solution that automates storage provisioning and improves capacity utilization for the HPE Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA) family. DCM Software uses advanced automation to “right-size” the supported file system and the EVA virtual disk (Vdisk) storage volume to the needs of an application. This dramatically improves capacity utilization by allowing the administrator to simply specify a capacity utilization range for each Vdisk.
Configuring EVA DCM Software policies takes just seconds with its effortless wizards and advanced automation. The simple ""set and forget"" provisioning not only reduces the resource cost of ongoing storage provisioning, but also allows for the potential postponement of additional capacity purchases due to increased storage utilization. This reduces the operational costs of powering and cooling unnecessary storage while lowering the enterprise's carbon footprint.
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.
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.
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.
If you have been worried about data protection and system downtime, then your worries are now over.
HPE Cluster Extension Software (CLX) is an integrated solution that works with HPE Storage Array to protect against system downtime. Delivering automatic failover of application services and read/write enabling of remotely mirrored mid-range/high-end storage over metropolitan distances. CLX delivers true hands-free failover/failback decision making. If a storage administrator is unaware of the outage, unable to respond, or not present, HPE Cluster Extension Software can manage the failover because it requires no server reboots or LUN presentation/mapping changes during failover.
CLX Software supports the entire HPE 3PAR/3PAR StoreServ, XP/P9500 and EVA/P6000 arrays.
