HPE XP P9000 Smart Tiers Software
HPE XP P9000 Smart Tiers Software improves storage performance and controls costs by transparently migrating data to appropriate tiers of storage within the HPE XP P9500 Storage. Smart Tiers manages data in thin provisioning pools. It monitors performance at the page level and can migrate the data online to a different tier, automatically or manually, based on policies. Smart Tiers supports up to three tiers per pool.
XP P9000 Smart Tiers helps utilize different types of storage media (SSD, 15K SAS, 7.2K SAS) optimally. With page level movements across tiers, it enables the most effective utilization of expensive tiers such as SSD by helping ensure that only the most frequently accessed data is stored there.
