Multiple relationships provide greater storage flexibility and utilization. First, disk purchasing no longer needs to quic,specs based on guesstimates of data growth for individual applications; thin provisioned Vdisks will utilize disk space not presently used by other applications and provide it to high-growth applications.

Automated scripts, wizards, and Interactive Replication Topology Viewer reduce complexity and provide greater flexibility of executing tasks.

This allows for quick recovery of a source should the volume become corrupted. To assist the user, information on the replication environment is presented in a variety of views, including an interactive topology manager that allows each user to select their viewing preference.

Easy capacity growth Thin provisioning is automated, spawning an alert when utilization approaches a specified threshold.

This dual integration enables the cluster service to verify the status of the storage as well as the server cluster; thus allowing the correct failover and failback decisions to be made which minimize downtime, and accelerates recovery – without human intervention.

No Single Point of failure Supreme redundancy: A management server is still required to access certain features not available quickapecs an array-based management module configuration. The simple “set and forget” provisioning not only reduces the resource cost of ongoing storage provisioning, but also allows for the potential postponement of additional capacity purchases due to increased quickspcs utilization.

Synchronous mirroring ensures that data copies are identical, to prevent critical data loss in the event of a failure or disaster.

It provides support for Fibre channel or iSCSI connectivity that provides choice based on your business needs which maximizes your existing infrastructure investment. This new tool dramatically simplifies managing replication and results in significantly quickspecd resource utilization. In addition Command View also provides audit logging capability of user actions and events that change the system state.


Snapclones provide the ability to take and use a clone without extensive advance preparation. It helps to quickly pinpoint performance bottlenecks so that applications run at optimized performance. In addition, higher utilization results in less power and cooling requirements by reducing the need for unnecessary disk drives. We do not provide the 1 TB capacity licenses from P series onwards.

It also has the ability to generate customized reports with multiple charting options, which can help troubleshoot performance issues. P software licenses are not transferable from one array to another.

Plus,40 credits per year, select from an extensive menu of consultancy and technical services, such as onsite firmware upgrades, health checks, assessments, and education. Not only is managing replication easier, it also results in the ability to make remote replication 1 Less expensive through faster, automated methods that virtually eliminate complexity while resulting in fewer user errors.

Through onscreen instructions and help it will guide the customer through the installation of HP P Command View Software on a management server. Only HP brings together deep expertise, proactive and business critical support and a strong partner network-plus, a full set of infrastructure services designed to power a Converged Infrastructure. This saves valuable capacity qyickspecs reduces workload by automatically using space as needed.

Vsnap is similar to the standard snapshot fully allocated except that it does not reserve the same amount of disk capacity as the production volume being copied. Disk capacity is reserved to accommodate the original size of the source volume. For more information, please contact an HP representative.

Accelerates storage consolidation Licensing Improved capacity utilization allows more applications to be deployed on the same storage Array Management flexibility for greater control The flexible architecture allows the administrator to easily switch between automatic and manual modes to quickly adapt to changing business needs.

Users can also manage both local and remote replication tasks through the use of HP Replication Solutions Manager graphical user interface described in the next section.

If the browser version you are using is earlier that what is listed here, you must upgrade your browser. Greener IT Allowing more servers to share a single thin provisioned storage system encourages storage system consolidation, reducing system proliferation and simplifying IT operations that may have been complicated by the addition of virtualized servers to the data center.


A standard snapshot full allocated is a point-in-time virtual copy of the data, created in seconds and usable immediately, providing maximum flexibility for user applications. Browser Version Firefox Internet Explorer 3. Available 24×7, this 3-year combined reactive support option delivers onsite hardware support and over-the-phone software support around-the-clock.

Importantly, data remains continuously available so that data migration imposes fewer interruptions to IT operations. HP Cluster Extension is licensed per server. The replication solutions manager manages all local and remote replication features across the full P family.


HP storage lifecycle support services offers a full spectrum of customer care-from technology support to complex migrations to complete managed services. Windows management server supported. This results in a unique, cost effective disaster recovery solution, with less effort to configure offering value to IT and its resources.

HP Insight Remote Support- Available at no additional cost to all warranty, HP Care Pack Service and service agreement customers, uses proven technology to deliver secure, reliable 24×7 remote monitoring, diagnosis and problem resolution. HP recommends purchasing electronic products over physical products when available for faster delivery and the convenience of not having to manage-either file away or throw away-confidential paper licenses.

Adding extra capacity requires no re-provisioning. Once they are set, capacity provisioning and reclamation are automatic allowing the administrator to focus on other business critical tasks. Virtually capacity free snapshots demand allocated allow the user to create a point-in-time copy, or demand allocated snapshot, of a specified Virtual Disk LUN.

MirrorClone provides an alternative to a snapshot by allowing the user to make a full, bytefor-byte, point-in-time copy of a source LUN that can be mounted to a secondary server.
