HP 3PAR Thin Conversion Software

What I can do to improve the capacity efficiency of my legacy storage volumes without complex data migration or professional services? HP 3PAR Thin Conversion Software leverages the zero-detection capabilities within the HP 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to drive the conversion of inefficient, “fat” volumes on legacy arrays to more efficient, higher utilization “thin” volumes on HP 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.

HP 3PAR Thin Persistence Software

What good are thin provisioning savings if they can’t be preserved over time? An industry first, HP 3PAR Thin Persistence Software means that thin volumes on the HP 3PAR Storage System stay as lean and efficient as possible by leveraging the HP 3PAR Gen3 ASIC to reclaim unused space associated with deleted data—simply, quickly, and non-disruptively. Writing and deleting large amounts of data can leave unused space within thin volumes.

Even lots of small writes and deletions can eventually reduce the efficiency of thin volumes. This logical deletion of data without actually freeing up unused space creates a hidden utilization penalty that can really add up over time.

HP 3PAR Thin Persistence Software reclaims this unused space to increase capacity efficiency, keep costs down, and help defer the purchase of additional capacity to handle new data growth. Thin Persistence also helps enterprises maintain sustainability targets by keeping down data center power and cooling needs.

HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software

Do you have storage pools that aren’t really efficient? HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning Software solves the problem of inefficient capacity utilization by breaking the traditional linkage between allocated and purchased capacity. Demand for thin provisioning solutions combined with increased attention to data center power consumption has put pressure on vendors to introduce thin provisioning solutions, but bolt-on implementations can’t deliver the simplicity or the efficiency of Thin Provisioning.

With HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning, capacity is dedicated and configured autonomically, just-in-time, and without active management. Rather than create separate pools of storage, the software creates one pool from which capacity is dedicated only as data is actually written.

And while other thin provisioning implementations use coarse allocation units that can range from 1 MB to 17 GB, HP 3PAR Thin Provisioning uses a fine-grained, 16 KB allocation unit to increase system efficiency.

HP 3PAR Dynamic Optimization Software is an autonomic storage tiering tool that provides the ability to react quickly and non-disruptively to changing application and infrastructure requirements. Dynamic Optimization enables organizations to achieve optimized data QoS levels at the lowest cost, at all times, across all stages of the disk-based data lifecycle.

It enables users to non-disruptively alter service levels associated with a storage volume (RAID level, subsystem failure protection level, drive type, stripe width, and /or radial placement) and to rebalance entire system or individual storage volumes, each with a single click. Dynamic Optimization analyzes how volumes on the HP 3PAR Storage system are using physical disk space and makes intelligent, autonomic adjustments to ensure optimal volume distribution and tiering of storage volumes.

Features:

Aligns Application Requirements with Data QoS Levels Flexibly, Precisely, and on Demand

Provides the Ability to React Quickly to Changing Application and Infrastructure Requirements

HP 3PAR Recovery Manager Software for Hyper-V

Is your Hyper-V backup solution disruptive or does recovery lack the granularity to restore individual files? HP 3PAR Recovery Manager Software for Hyper-V is an array-based, online virtual machine snapshot and recovery solution that gives superior control over data protection and recovery in Hyper-V environments. By leveraging HP 3PAR Virtual Copy Software, Recovery Manger enables administrators to non-disruptively create space-efficient, application-consistent, point-in-time snapshots to protect and recover Virtual Hard Disks (VHDs), individual virtual machines (VMs).

The Application Suite for Recovery Manager includes Recovery Manager for Hyper-V and the VSS Provider software.

Supported Hardware Environment:
HP 3PAR Storage systems

Features:

Simple and Highly Flexible Implementation for Recovery of Hyper-V VMs to Enhance Productivity

Enables Highly Granular and Flexible Recovery Point Objectives and Recovery Time Objectives

HP 3PAR Priority Optimization Software

Do you need to improve service levels for mission critical applications? HP 3PAR Priority Optimization Software enables service levels for applications and workloads as business requirements dictate. Protect mission critical applications in enterprise environments by assigning performance caps on workloads with lower service level requirements.

Provide high priority applications with all the resources they need to meet service levels. Enable certainty and predictability for all applications and tenants. Configure service level objectives—I/O per Seconds limit and I/O Bandwidth limit — on a Virtual Volume Set (VVset).

A Virtual Volume Set may contain a single volume or multiple volumes. A Virtual Volume may also belong to multiple Virtual Volume Sets.

All host I/O on the VVset is monitored and measured against the Service Level objective.

Supported Hardware Environment:
HP 3PAR Storage systems, HP 3PAR StoreServ

Features:

Enable Service Level Performance for a Specific Application with a Flexible Priority Policy

Specify the Relative Performance of Each Workload on HP 3PAR StoreServ

HP 3PAR StoreServ Data At Rest Encryption

HP 3PAR StoreServ Data at Rest Encryption protects data from security breaches. If your application or environment requires data protection from loss of a drive or unauthorized exposure of the data on a drive, then consider the HP 3PAR StoreServ Data at Rest Encryption solution.

With this solution, HP 3PAR StoreServ is configured with self-encrypting drives. A single array-based local key authenticates access to the data being read or written to the drives, with no performance impact. HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000, 7450 and 10000 models are available with self-encrypting drives (SEDs), where data is encrypted as it is written to the drive.

You have the comfort of knowing that all data contained on these drives is protected against unauthorized access, including media or hardware theft, tampering, accidental corruption and more.

Supported Hardware Environment:
HP 3PAR StoreServ

Features:

Secure Sensitive Personal Information According to Regulatory Mandates

Encrypt Data Easily and with no Performance Impact

Mitigate Internal and External Risk with Data-At-Rest Encryption
