HP XP P9000 for Compatible High Perf FICON (R) Connectivity Software

High Performance FICON for system z or zHPF is an enhancement of the FICON channel architecture; which also means compatibility with certain standards such as Fibre Channel Physical and Signaling standard (FC-FS), Fibre Channel Switch Fabric and Switch Control Requirements (FC-SW), and Fibre Channel Single-Byte-4 (FC-SB-4) standards. Enhancements have been made to the z/Architecture and the FICON interface architecture to deliver improvements for online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads.

zHPF is implemented exclusively in System z10. When High Performance FICON is exploited by the FICON channel, the z/OS operating system, and the control unit; the FICON channel overhead will be reduced.

This is achieved by simplification of the protocol, and by reducing the number of information units processed, resulting in more efficient use of the fiber link.

HP XP P9000 for Compatible PAV Software

HP XP P9000 for Compatible Parallel Access Volumes and HP XP P9000 for Compatible Hyper PAV Software enable high performance concurrent access of mainframe volumes by permitting a mainframe host system to issue multiple I/O requests in parallel to individual logical devices within the HP XP P9500 Storage. Without PAV, mainframe systems can initiate only one I/O request per device at a time, and must wait for the I/O to complete before starting another I/O request to the same device.

By utilizing alias addresses that all point to the same device as the base address, PAV enables the host system to start several I/O requests simultaneously to the same device, thus greatly improving performance. The XP P9500 Storage supports static PAV, dynamic PAV, and Hyper PAV. With static PAV, the number of aliases assigned to each base device does not change.

With dynamic PAV, high workload base devices can borrow idle PAV aliases from other base devices, increasing their I/O capability.
