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.
Is your data protection solution causing your Exchange/SQL administrative costs to spiral out of control?
HPE Recovery Manager Software for Microsoft Exchange Server and Microsoft SQL Server eases administration by providing efficient online backup and recovery of entire Microsoft Exchange Server/SQL databases from multiple, highly granular points in time. Recovery Manager intelligently creates and manages highly granular and capacity-efficient Exchange/SQL database aware snapshots. These snapshots can then be used to quickly restore Exchange/SQL instances or databases, or to non-disruptively back them up to tape for near-continuous data protection. Since Recovery Manager is built on HPE P2000 G3 Snapshot software multiple snapshots can be kept online economically, allowing for extended or frequent Exchange/SQL database recovery points.
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.
Do you need to save money, storage space, and valuable time deploying and managing backup and recovery solutions?
The HPE XP7 Data Protection Manager can improve data availability, compliance, governance, agility, and cost efficiency by enabling administrators to create policies and workflows that automate replication and copy data management. It simplifies copy data configuration by removing vast amount of complexity and the need to create and manage custom scripts, reducing deployment from weeks to minutes. Easily create and manage replication and copy services with the whiteboard-like GUI to meet quality of service requirements. This management solution tightly integrates copy services with applications to ensure application and crash consistent-backup.
Hitachi Dynamic Link Manager Software provides path failover, failback, and automatic load balancing. Together these features provide higher data availability and accessibility for VMware, Windows, Linux, and Sun Solaris environments. If one path fails, the path failover feature in HDLM Software automatically switches the I/O to an alternate path, and your data remains available for access. HDLM Software also helps maintain outstanding system performance by balancing workloads across available paths. HDLM supports HPE P9500 Disk Array, HPE XP Disk Arrays and the equivalent Hitachi storage systems. It enables easy management of paths through a browser based connection to the server. With its path failover capability, HDLM switches to an alternate path if a failure occurs on the active path, allowing processing to continue without interruption. HDLM can be operated remotely by linking with HPE P9000 Command View Advanced Edition.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager Software is a plug-in application for HPE XP Command View Advanced Edition Software. It enables you to quickly connect an HPE XP Disk Array to a host server and make the storage ready for use. It simplifies each step of the process: carving raw disk storage into manageable logical devices (LDEV's), allocating LDEV's to host servers, creating a device file, creating a file system, and mounting the resulting block to a file system.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager enables you to integrate and manage your HPE XP Disk Array storage as a logical storage pool. By presenting the volumes associated with each resource group as a single logical volume, HPE XP Provisioning Manager lets you manage these volumes regardless of where they actually reside. This reduces the workload required to monitor and maintain the various volumes.
HPE XP Provisioning Manager provides transaction logs to help you quickly resolve file system and device management problems.
HPE XP Tiered Storage Manager Software is a plug-in application for HPE XP Command View Advanced Edition Software. It allows you to non-disruptively migrate HPE XP Disk Array data between tiers of storage while your applications remain on line. You can match key user quality of service requirements, like cost, performance and data protection level, to the storage attributes of HPE XP Disk Array controlled storage. HPE XP Tiered Storage Manager Software works not only with internal HPE XP Disk Array data, but also with External Storage, such as an MSA or EVA, connected to the HPE XP Disk Array.
HPE XP Tiered Storage Manager Software saves you time and eliminates disruption when you need to migrate ageing data to another tier of storage. With this product you can move the data while it remains online and ready for access. It improves data manageability and is perfect for applications which cannot be stopped or even paused.
