Proven 100% Data Availability1, and Backed-up with a 100% Availability Guarantee2
Operating a business demands constant uptime, the risk of data loss or downtime must be minimized. HPE XP8 Storage is designed for 8-nines5 of availability, virtually eliminating downtime risk. All active components are redundant, hot-swappable, and can be upgraded or replaced online.
HPE XP8 Storage with multi array virtualization provides 100% data availability1 and storage uptime, even in the event of a data center disaster. Avoid both planned and unplanned downtime with disaster resistant HPE XP8 Remote Replication Suite. There's never a need to take HPE XP8 offline.
HPE XP8 Storage enables continuous Disaster Recovery capabilities before, during, and after array migrations with HPE XP8 Online Data Migration.
Move workloads from legacy HPE XP disk arrays to HPE XP8 with no interruption to applications, no server reboots and no suspension of your HPE XP Disaster Recovery solution.
Ultimate Flexibility for a Wide Range of Workloads and Applications
The HPE XP8 modular architecture enables customers to scale from a 2 DKC/2 controller entry configuration up to a massive 6 DKC/12 controller system. Scale up to 69 petabytes (PB) of internal storage capacity, plus up to 255 PB of virtualized external capacity. Scale up as needed, all online!
HPE XP8 supports a wide choice of media to meet customer requirements. NVMe and SAS SSDs, Storage Class Memory (SCM), Flash Module Device (FMD) and HDDs. Deploy the media that provides the best price performance balance for your application workload.
Start with an All-Flash or Hybrid two-controller base DKC, then upgrade to a performance DKC and secondary DKC to scale performance and capacity as needed.
HPE XP8 storage front-end FC NVMe support for more choice in host connectivity. Get faster connectivity between HPE XP8 and hosts, plus more efficient CPU utilization.
HPE XP8 provides flexibility and convenience for server or operating system maintenance by insuring data access. By presenting a virtual storage layer to hosts, one side of an application cluster can be taken offline, while the other side continues to access the XP8 data.
Dominant Performance that Meets Even the Most Extreme Workload Requirements
Delivering over 33 million IOPs3, HPE XP8 Gen2 storage provides plenty of performance to meet extreme workload requirements.
The HPE XP8 HW compression accelerator increases data compression ratios for increased effective capacity. At the same time the HPE XP8 compression accelerator reduces the controller CPU compression workload which leads to increased overall performance.4
HPE XP8 Storage Class Memory (SCM) media offers the ultimate in performance and latency. Get up to 36 TB of data storage with sub-100 microsecond latency to solve performance challenges not addressable with legacy media types.
The HPE XP8 Storage Class Media modules offer the ultimate in performance and latency. Additionally, Flash Module Devices deliver guaranteed 2:14 compression along with world class performance with zero performance penalty.
XP8 Smart Tiers and Thin Provisioning provides quick and automated flexibility for changing application needs. You can now configure all the capacity you will need for the future, only buy what you need today and allow the XP8 to automatically monitor and adjust for performance and capacity needs.
Built-in Intelligent Storage Management
HPE XP8 is intelligent storage that monitors, detects, and solves problems before they can affect availability and performance. This is achieved with integrated AI capabilities like Performance Advisor VM analytics, Continuous Track data analytics functionality, and future InfoSight support.
All-inclusive software, such as HPE XP8 Intelligent Storage Manager streamlines storage management, enables at-a-glance status of resources, simplifies deployment, management, and maintenance of HPE XP storage.
HPE XP8 Data Protection Manager provides simplified modern data protection and copy management to improve data availability, compliance, and agility. Data Protection Manager uses built-in intelligence to guide users in policy and workflow creation to automate replication and copy data management.
Improved Performance Advisor Software has a simplified GUI, expanded reporting capabilities, and robust VM Analytics.
The HPE XP8 storage has an easy to use task based GUI, Common/Consistent Command Line Interface (CLI), simplified serviceability, and simple provisioning with one-click volume creation, dynamic/automatic provisioning and optimization.
 Based on HPE Quality Support tracking data.
 Based on HPE internal performance testing.
 HPE XP8 100% Data Availability Guarantee Program.
 HPE XP8 Compression Guarantee Program.
 The HPE XP7 Storage 8-nines reliability is determined by the Symbolic Hierarchical Automated reliability and Performance Evaluator (SHARPE) tool that models and predicts overall system availability using continuous time Markov chain (CTMC) methodology. Availability predictions for HPE XP8 Storage were performed by the HPE Solution Design Services team in October 2019. Contact your local HPE Sales representative for more information.
