HPE XP Thin Provisioning Software reduces the cost, accelerates the return on investment and reduces the environmental impact of your HPE XP24000 and XP20000 Disk Arrays. It allows you to supply disk storage capacity to your applications from a pool of virtualized storage. By enabling you to allocate your anticipated future storage capacity needs from virtual disk storage, HPE XP Thin Provisioning Software reduces the amount of physical disk capacity initially required. As utilization of disk space increases over time, you can purchase more disk capacity as it is needed and install it without affecting your applications. HPE XP Thin Provisioning Software reduces your initial storage acquisition cost, and reduces total cost of ownership, by allowing you to defer some storage purchases to a later date. Configure large logical volumes using a minimum of physical capacity, only paying for and installing storage when it is needed.
HPE XP for Compatible Extended Remote Copy (XRC) Software provides disaster protection and data migration capability for data stored on an HPE XP Disk Array 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.
Managing a virtualized infrastructure can be a daunting task considering the sheer amount of data, innumerable tasks, virtual and physical asset management, and simultaneous processes handled each day. It can prove to be an overwhelming challenge to oversee, maintain, and manage all your virtual machines (VMs), especially when you need to use multiple separate consoles for each operation. What if you could know exactly what was going on in your VMware® environment? HPE Storage Plug-Ins for VMware can provide you with the insight you need to manage your physical storage resources inside of your native and familiar VMware management tools. HPE Storage Plug-Ins for VMware provide value added management, monitoring, and automation integration for VMware environments through VMware® vCenter™ and VMware vRealize plug-ins that manage HPE Storage systems.
The HPE StoreFront Analytics software provides customers using HPE 3PAR StoreServ/StoreVirtual storage with operational dashboards to gain deep insights and visibility into the health, risk and efficiency of the storage infrastructure’s performance and capacity capabilities.
HPE StoreFront Analytics integrates directly into VMware vRealize Operations Manager through an additional dashboard specific to HPE storage. This dashboard allows VMware vSphere administrators to quickly view storage capacity, performance metrics, health information and allows to easier troubleshoot scenarios that span across virtual and physical layers, which includes the HPE 3PAR StoreServ and HPE StoreVirtual storage layer.
By actively analyzing and providing alerts on the health of the virtual machines, datastores and storage, the VMware vSphere administrator's productivity increases, as does the ability to rapidly identify and troubleshoot potential problems and ensure consistent, predictable quality of service.
HPE XP P9000 Resource Partition Software allows role based access control of XP P9500 resources. It allows storage administrators to partition XP P9500 Storage resources, at physical and logical level (Ports, Parity Groups, LDEV, Host Groups, External Volume) and assigning these resources to sub-administrators while retaining overall control.
HPE XP P9000 Resource Partition Software is ideal for a multi-tenant environment set up where dedicated sub-administrators need to manage the IT infrastructure needs of their respective business units. At the same time, it allows the datacenter administrator retain complete control of XP P9500 Storage resources. Datacenter administrators can decide to partition XP P9500 Storage resources either at a logical level to improve storage utilization efficiency or at a physical level to improve quality of service and avoid data and access breaches across multiple tenants.
Storage Area Networks and the tools that are used to manage them have become increasingly complex. SAN administrators spend more time in configuration tasks – tedious manual activities which can potentially result in unplanned downtime. The reasons for the complexity include the increased adoption of Virtualization – a complexity stemming from mapping the virtual and physical layers of the SAN and the adoption of multiple protocols - iSCSI, FC and FCoE. HPE Smart SAN for 3PAR makes SAN configuration and management simple and error-free through intelligent automation. It is a protocol agnostic application embedded in SAN components that enables the 3PAR to orchestrate configuration, settings and policies in a HPE StoreFabric SAN. HPE Smart SAN’s Target Driven Peer Zoning enables you to configure zones accurately in minutes and not in hours and its automatic discovery mechanism creates a powerful platform which would enable real-time diagnostics and SAN analysis for more resiliency.
