Key Features

Simplified Library Management

HPE Command View for Tape Libraries (CVTL) provides a management platform which allows users to configure, manage, and monitor all of the tape libraries through a single console.

The intuitive HPE CVTL dashboard is fully integrated with licensed features TapeAssure Advanced and Data Verification Software. The CVTL dashboard presents all of the library, drive and cartridge data pulled from those reports in straightforward graphs and charts.

The dashboard also includes library partitioning management. Partitioning allows different cartridge slots to be presented to the host as an independent library. Each partition owns independent media and can use alternative ISV software, allowing increased flexibility and utilization.

Peace of Mind with In-depth Analysis of Tape Environment

HPE StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced is a licensed feature of HPE CVTL and generates the analytical reporting that provides users with peace of mind by understanding how their tape environment is performing.

HPE TapeAssure Advanced monitors the health and performance of tape drives and cartridges. The HPE CVTL dashboard allows users to easily view the results of the HPE TapeAssure reports in either a simplified or detailed view.

Pie charts demonstrate the proportion of drives and cartridges that are healthy or need attention and these are categorized into either healthy, warning, or critical status based on utilization and performance.

Users can drill down to view the health and performance status of individual drives and cartridges by serial number, which helps to pinpoint exactly where in the library environment issues are occurring or where performance and utilization can be improved.

HPE StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced can be trialed for 60 days free of cost once HPE CVTL has been installed and configured with an HPE StoreEver MSL Tape Library or Autoloader.

Proactive Verification of Infrequently Accessed Data

HPE StoreEver Data Verification is a licensed feature of CVTL that scans LTO tapes in MSL3040 and MSL6480 tape libraries to verify that data stored on those tapes is healthy and that a successful restore will occur when the data is needed. This reduces the potential risk of any restore failures.

Data verification scans run in the background without interrupting host applications and proactively notify the user if there is a need for data to be migrated.

Data verification can also scan both encrypted and non-encrypted tapes that are written in the LTFS format and verification results are maintained so that users can view how the data stored on the cartridge has changed over time.

Trial Data Verification for free by protecting 10 active tape cartridges once Command View for Tape Libraries 5.5 or later has been installed.

Planning with Predictive Analytics

HPE CVTL also enables users to plan by making use of predictive analytics. HPE StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced uses statistical analysis of performance, health and utilization information to predict future performance of an entire tape infrastructure.

Users can anticipate issues such as hardware failures and potential bottlenecks that could impact the utilization and performance of a tape environment.

Anticipating the likelihood of issues such as hardware failures and system bottlenecks significantly reduce unscheduled downtime and help minimize any risk of losing critical business data.
