As businesses strive to improve operational efficiency, consolidation of servers and storage becomes an attractive option. HPE XP Disk/Cache Partition Software enables storage administrators in large consolidated storage environments to host multiple diverse user groups on one XP Disk Array while maintaining appropriate isolation between applications. XP Disk/Cache Partition enables you to divide your XP Disk Array into multiple, independent partitions, with each partition having its own host ports, disk parity groups and cache. Applications that would normally compete for resources can share a single disk array without impacting each other. Departments can share a single XP disk array confident that administrators cannot affect portions of the disk array that belong to someone else.
XP Disk/Cache Partition Software allows companies to consolidate a variety of online storage needs onto one central XP disk array.
Are security and performance concerns standing in the way of infrastructure consolidation? HPE 3PAR Virtual Domains Software is technology capable of providing thousands of secure “virtual private arrays” within a single, massively-scalable HPE 3PAR Storage system.
By providing secure administrative segregation of users, hosts, and application data, Virtual Domains allows hosting providers to deliver virtual private array services and enterprise IT organizations to deliver “self-service” storage that is both secure and capable of high quality-of-service levels. Through consolidation onto the massively parallel and dynamically-tiered 3PAR Storage, individual user groups and applications achieve greater storage service levels (performance, availability, and functionality) than pre-consolidation levels with less infrastructure.
Virtual Domains is ideal for both internal and external storage service providers, and for any enterprise deploying a converged infrastructure.
What I can do to improve the capacity efficiency of my legacy storage volumes without complex data migration or professional services?
HPE 3PAR Thin Conversion Software leverages the zero-detection capabilities within the HPE 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to drive the conversion of inefficient, “fat” volumes on legacy arrays to more efficient, higher utilization “thin” volumes on HPE 3PAR Storage Systems. This “thinning” of volumes enables data centers to meet Green IT targets, eliminate wasted space, and increase utilization rates. Because the fat-to-thin conversion mechanism is built into array hardware, volume conversions take place inline, at wire speeds, while preserving service levels, and without disruption to production workloads. With Thin Conversion, a technology refresh no longer requires a terabyte-for-terabyte replacement, but instead offers the opportunity to reduce capacity requirements by 50 percent or more without the need to invest in professional services.
What good are thin provisioning savings if they can’t be preserved over time?
An industry first, HPE 3PAR Thin Persistence Software means that thin volumes on the HPE 3PAR Storage System stay as lean and efficient as possible by leveraging the HPE 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to reclaim unused space associated with deleted data—simply, quickly, and non-disruptively. Writing and deleting large amounts of data can leave unused space within thin volumes. Even lots of small writes and deletions can eventually reduce the efficiency of thin volumes. This logical deletion of data without actually freeing up unused space creates a hidden utilization penalty that can really add up over time. HPE 3PAR Thin Persistence Software reclaims this unused space to increase capacity efficiency, keep costs down, and help defer the purchase of additional capacity to handle new data growth. Thin Persistence also helps enterprises maintain sustainability targets by keeping down data center power and cooling needs.
Do you have storage pools that aren’t really efficient?
HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software solves the problem of inefficient capacity utilization by breaking the traditional linkage between allocated and purchased capacity. Demand for thin provisioning solutions combined with increased attention to data center power consumption has put pressure on vendors to introduce thin provisioning solutions, but bolt-on implementations can’t deliver the simplicity or the efficiency of Thin Provisioning.
With HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning, capacity is dedicated and configured autonomically, just-in-time, and without active management. Rather than create separate pools of storage, the software creates one pool from which capacity is dedicated only as data is actually written. And while other thin provisioning implementations use coarse allocation units that can range from 1 MB to 17 GB, HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning uses a fine-grained, 16 KB allocation unit to increase system efficiency.
Is your organization looking to implement stricter data governance practices, or do you need to protect data from deletion to facilitate electronic discovery (eDiscovery)? HPE 3PAR Virtual Lock Software is designed to help HPE 3PAR Utility Storage customers meet data governance and eDiscovery needs more efficiently and flexibly than with existing storage products.
Virtual Lock Software gives users the ability to protect data volumes and volume copies from intentional or unintentional deletions. During the user-specified retention period, volumes and copies can be read but are protected against deletion, even by an administrator with the highest level user privileges.
Virtual Lock Software is “thin-aware,” so it works on both standard and thin provisioned storage volumes copies, and is completely compatible with HPE 3PAR Virtual Copy Software, HPE 3PAR Remote Copy Software, and HPE 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software.
Do you want the ability to replicate data to remote locations more efficiently and cost effectively? HPE 3PAR Remote Copy Software provides enterprise and cloud data centers with autonomic replication and Tier1 disaster recovery technology that allows the protection and sharing of data from any application simply, efficiently, and affordably.
Remote Copy Software dramatically reduces the cost of remote data replication and disaster recovery by leveraging thin copy technology and enabling replication with midrange, all-flash, and high-end arrays to deliver unique cost efficiencies for protecting a broader set of applications. Set up and test in minutes, reducing the need for professional services.
With support for Synchronous, Asynchronous Periodic and multi-site, Synchronous Long Distance replication, 3PAR Remote Copy delivers a rich portfolio of replication options for customers to achieve stringent recovery time objectives (RTO) and fast recovery point objectives (RPOs).
HPE 3PAR Peer Motion Software enables Storage Federation and is the first non-disruptive, do-it-yourself data migration and load balancing tool for enterprise storage.
With Peer Motion, HPE 3PAR StoreServ customers can load balance I/O workloads across systems at will, perform technology refresh seamlessly, cost-optimize asset lifecycle management, and lower technology refresh capital expenditure.
Unlike traditional block migration approaches, Peer Motion enables customers to migrate storage volumes between any HPE 3PAR StoreServ models online, non-disruptively, and without complex planning or dependency on extra tools. Peer Motion leverages HPE 3PAR StoreServ Thin Built In™ technology to power the simple and rapid inline conversion of inefficient, “fat” volumes on source arrays to more efficient, higher-utilization “thin” volumes on the destination system. 3PAR Management Console orchestrates all stages of the data migration lifecycle to ensure data migration is simple and fool-proof.
Are you struggling to keep pace with ever-increasing workloads on a never-increasing budget? While virtualization has provided some relief by enabling the benefits of faster deployment and consolidation, it tends to put additional stress on data center networks.
