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).
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.
Store and manage mainframe and open systems data on a single HPE XP Disk Array. HPE XP Data Exchange Software allows seamless data exchange between mainframe and open systems hosts. It provides management of data format and code conversions, and allows information sharing across computing platforms. It supports HP-UX, Windows, Linux, Sun Solaris, IBM AIX, and mainframe operating systems.
Are you looking to improve the efficiency of your tape automation infrastructure? HPE StoreEver Management Software provides an easy-to-use interface for efficiently managing, monitoring and configuring an entire tape library environment. The HPE StoreEver Management Software suite is made up of HPE Command View for Tape Libraries (CVTL), HPE StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced and HPE StoreEver Data Verification. CVTL provides the centralized platform for TapeAssure Advanced reporting and Data Verification analysis, along with remote management, diagnostics and configuration for all MSL Tape Libraries from across the room or across the globe. HPE StoreEver TapeAssure Advanced provides predictive, analytical reporting of health and performance information for all drives and cartridges. HPE StoreEver Data Verification Software proactively validates and scans, non-disruptively, the quality of data stored on LTO tape cartridges, which ensures the successful retrieval of critical business data.
