Supported across all HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage platforms, HPE 3PAR Operating System Software utilizes advanced internal virtualization capabilities, features, and tools to increase storage management efficiency, capacity utilization, and performance in enterprise and cloud data centers. The OS simplifies storage management by handling provisioning and change management autonomically, intelligently, at a subsystem level, and without administrator intervention.
Autonomic provisioning features eliminate traditional storage planning by delivering instant, application-tailored provisioning. Fine-grained virtualization of lower-level components and wide striping of data ensure that service levels remain high and predictable, even as the use of the system grows or in the event of a component failure. Industry leading ease of use is delivered through the simple, unified HPE 3PAR Management Console and the powerful, scriptable HPE 3PAR Command Line Interface (CLI).
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.
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).
The HPE StoreEver MSL Tape Libraries meet demanding storage requirement of businesses needing unattended tape backup, disaster recovery, or low cost long-term archive capability. The MSL Libraries offer a broad choice of storage capacities and technology including LTO-8, LTO-7, LTO-6 or LTO-5 Ultrium tape drives. Web-based remote management makes the MSL Libraries easily managed from across the room or across the globe. Quickly manage tape media both in and out of the library with the standard bar code reader, configurable mail slots, and multiple 12-slot removable magazines. Protect important business data from unauthorized access with several data encryption options. MSL library investment protection and uncertain data growth are easily managed within the MSL library portfolio. Quickly increase capacity and/or performance with tool-free drive upgrades in the MSL2024/MSL4048, or move tape drive kits to an MSL3040/ MSL6480 for scalability and additional enterprise class features.
IT organizations continue to face unprecedented data growth as more platforms, applications, and users connect to the data center network. In turn, the storage network infrastructure must continue evolving to enable fast, continuous, and cost effective access to mission critical data from anywhere in the world.
To address this challenge, the HPE 1606 Extension SAN Switch helps provide fast, reliable, and cost-effective network infrastructure for remote data replication, backup, and migration. Leveraging next-generation Fibre Channel and advanced Fibre Channel over IP (FCIP) technology, the 1606 Extension SAN Switch provides a flexible and extensible platform to move more data faster and further than ever before.
The HPE 1606 Extension SAN Switch offers up to sixteen (16) 8 Gb Fibre Channel ports and six (6) 1 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) ports to provide unmatched Fibre Channel and FCIP bandwidth, port density, and throughput for maximum application performance over WAN links.
HPE Library and Tape Tools is a free, downloadable, and robust diagnostic tool for all Hewlett Packard Enterprise tape storage products. Provided for untrained administrators as well as experienced professionals, it is ideal for customers who want to verify their installation, facilitate product reliability, perform their own diagnostics, and achieve faster resolution of tape device issues. HPE Library and Tape Tools performs firmware upgrades, verification of device operation, failure analysis, and a range of utility functions. Performance tools assist in troubleshooting bottlenecks and system configuration checks warn of common host issues. It also provides seamless integration with Hewlett Packard Enterprise support by generating and e-mailing test results and support tickets. Our support desk will require the use of this product to troubleshoot most device issues, so it is recommended that a support ticket is pulled and the device assessment test is run before calling.
Having difficulty with replication tasks and disaster recovery?
HPE P2000 Array System Remote Snap Software offers controller-based, asynchronous replication technology that provides local or remote replication among the HPE P2000 G3 MSA Arrays. HPE Remote Snap functionality is based on existing Snapshot technology offered by HPE MSA2000 SAN Array products. Snapshots are used to track the data to be replicated as well as to determine the differences in data updated on the master volume, minimizing the amount of data to be transferred. Supporting both Ethernet and Fibre Channel interconnects provides flexible options to your application environments. Protect your investment with Snapshot based replication enabling local and remote recovery based on need. Leveraging the integrated 64-Snapshots and the Volume Copy standard on the P2000 G3 MSA Array, the Remote Snap cost-effectively creates the local or remote copies.
