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.
Hitachi Extended Remote Copy for Mainframe (XRC) provides disaster protection and data migration capability for data stored on the XP disk array system by implementing IBM mainframe compatible asynchronous remote replication. 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 XP disk array, XRC temporarily stores a timestamped copy of it in a sidefile. SDM in one of the mainframe hosts asynchronously reads the sidefile data from the local XP disk array and then writes the data to the remote disk array
XRC can be combined with other XP disk array replication products for additional availability. When combined with Hitachi TrueCopy for Mainframe, XRC supports 3 Data Center disaster recovery solutions. In addition, XRC can be used with Hitachi ShadowImage for Mainframe or Hitachi FlashCopy Mirroring for Mainframe to maintain multiple copies of important data at the local and remote sites.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager Software is a plug-in application for HPE XP Command View Advanced Edition Software. It enables you to quickly connect an HPE XP Disk Array to a host server and make the storage ready for use. It simplifies each step of the process: carving raw disk storage into manageable logical devices (LDEV's), allocating LDEV's to host servers, creating a device file, creating a file system, and mounting the resulting block to a file system.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager enables you to integrate and manage your HPE XP Disk Array storage as a logical storage pool. By presenting the volumes associated with each resource group as a single logical volume, HPE XP Provisioning Manager lets you manage these volumes regardless of where they actually reside. This reduces the workload required to monitor and maintain the various volumes.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager provides transaction logs to help you quickly resolve file system and device management problems.
