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.
HPE XP P9000 Business Copy Software is a local replication solution that provides data copies within a single HPE XP P9500 Storage, or in storage systems attached to a XP P9500 as external storage. XP P9000 Business Copy Software uses array-based replication technologies that do not interfere with host-level operations, allowing customers to spend time conducting business rather than worrying about how backup and testing operations will impact your systems.
Providing snapshots and mirrors, XP P9000 Business Copy Software reduces the cost of backups, accelerates recovery from failures, provides deployment flexibility, and simplifies application testing. Create full copies in physically separate locations within the array so that accesses to the copy will have no impact on the original production volume. Use the space-efficient snapshot capability to create frequent point-in-time copies of important volumes so that you can quickly restore data to an earlier version if necessary.
Store and manage mainframe and open systems data on a single HPE XP P9500 Storage. HPE XP P9000 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.
HPE XP P9000 DKA Encryption Software enables the encryption capability for all the data that is stored on the internal drives of the HPE XP P9500 Storage. The Enhanced DKA encrypts the data on disk drives so that data cannot be read off a disk drive that is removed from the HPE XP P9500 Storage. Only data on the disk drives is encrypted (data in cache is not encrypted).
In today’s business world, mergers, acquisitions, and technology changes have created IT environments where varieties of dissimilar servers and storage must co-exist. HPE XP P9000 External Storage Software decreases the stress and reduces the cost of owning heterogeneous data storage by simplifying and centralizing common SAN management tasks through storage virtualization. In addition it simplifies movement of data between dissimilar arrays. HPE XP P9000 External Storage Software provides these benefits by giving you the ability to access, monitor, and manage data residing on a variety of different disk arrays as if all of the data were residing on an HPE XP P9500 Storage.
Through advanced virtualization technology, HPE XP P9000 External Storage Software enables the hosting of HPE XP P9500 Storage data on externally attached disk arrays. Servers can see the capacity of the various arrays, but are insulated from the physical attributes.
HPE XP P9000 Array Manager Software improves efficiency and maintains quality of service by allowing you to manage data volumes and allocate HPE XP P9500 Storage resources so that your applications receive the proper level of support. Create LUNs, create expanded LUNs, and create small custom size volumes, and establish host access to them. Efficiently control replication volumes with a host-based command line interface. Improve performance by reserving areas of cache to store frequently accessed data. Isolate applications by subdividing the XP P9500 Storage into smaller segments, each consisting of dedicated cache, disk and ports.
HPE XP P9000 Array Manager Software protects your data by controlling access, preventing unauthorized alteration, and securely deleting data when it is no longer required. Configure security to prevent unauthorized servers from accessing the data.
HPE XP P9000 for Compatible Parallel Access Volumes and HPE XP P9000 for Compatible Hyper PAV Software enable high performance concurrent access of mainframe volumes by permitting a mainframe host system to issue multiple I/O requests in parallel to individual logical devices within the HPE XP P9500 Storage. Without PAV, mainframe systems can initiate only one I/O request per device at a time, and must wait for the I/O to complete before starting another I/O request to the same device. By utilizing alias addresses that all point to the same device as the base address, PAV enables the host system to start several I/O requests simultaneously to the same device, thus greatly improving performance.
The XP P9500 Storage supports static PAV, dynamic PAV, and Hyper PAV. With static PAV, the number of aliases assigned to each base device does not change. With dynamic PAV, high workload base devices can borrow idle PAV aliases from other base devices, increasing their I/O capability.
HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Software provides real-time array-to-array data replication for the HPE XP P9500 Storage. The software is part of the HPE comprehensive suite of business continuity and availability solutions that enable you to maintain constant access to your data, even if access to a site is lost. HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Software products are integrated with server clustering software solutions to provide the highest levels of availability and disaster tolerance. To protect your business from disasters of any size, whether local or wide-area, you can create three Data Center disaster recovery solutions, with one data center located a continent away. If you simply need to move data from one location to another, or from one generation of HPE XP P9500 Storage to another, HPE XP P9000 Continuous Access Software provides a reliable high-performance data migration solution.
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.
