Volume Management

SVSP Domain

New in Version 2.1 is the ability to stretch a domain across multiple computer rooms within the same metropolitan area and the ability to add an additional pair of DPMs for improved load balancing and increased performance. Each domain can now have up to 4 DPM's. When a domain is stretched, one DMP of each pair and one VSM are located in each site. Added in V2.1.1 is a utility to help automate the recovery after a site failure in these stretched domains.

Asynchronous Bidirectional Remote Replication

HP StorageWorks SAN Virtualization Services Platform

HP StorageWorks SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access is an asynchronous data replication (remote mirroring) solution to support disaster tolerance requirements. HP SVSP Continuous Access works across multiple arrays allowing remote mirroring between HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform management domains. SVSP copies data online and in real time via asynchronous replication to a remote SVSP domain. Additionally, data replication can be bi-directional and multi-site, meaning that a SVSP domain can be both a source and a destination for different data sets and supports up to three copies of the source data. Utilizing point-in-time (PiT) updates taken at the source site and copied to the destination site, HP SVSP Continuous Access is a complete disaster-tolerant storage solution that guarantees data integrity in the event of a storage system or site failure. HP SVSP features built-in Fibre Channel over Internet adapter and uses the iSCSI protocol services to enable HP SVSP Continuous Access data replication across IP networks. Snapshot based asynchronous (async) replication is supported between SVSP domains for long distance replication. The use of asynchronous snapshots may reduce infrastructure costs by allowing customers to use less expensive infrastructure between sites. This is achieved by only replicating the changes that occurred over small intervals of time rather than replicating every write. For additional information, please check the "HP StorageWorks SAN Design Guide" at: www.hp.com/go/SANDesignGuide

Thin Provisioning

HP StorageWorks SAN Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning allows customers to create virtual disks with large apparent capacity that only use a much smaller amount of physical capacity. As data is written to these Thin Provisioned virtual disks, additional capacity is automatically allocated as necessary to store the new data. A thin volume can grow up to its maximum created size, until available capacity within the domain is consumed, or until the licensed capacity is consumed. HP SVSP Business Copy provides local replication capabilities for local point-in-time (PiT) copies of data using snapshots of data based on changes to virtual disks. Users create PiT copies of their environment for potential future use. When they need it, they create a snapshot of that PiT which can be presented to a server for backup or data mining operations. Both are virtual copies of the data. PiTs are only viewable in the storage management interface, while snapshots are viewable by the hosts and the management interface. Snapclones are asynchronous PiT clones (copies) of an existing virtual disk. Snapclones might be used by customers who want to carve off a database for testing purposes. Snapshot and Snapclone consistency groups are available to preserve write-order consistency across multiple virtual disks.

Local Replication

HP StorageWorks HP StorageWorks SAN Virtualization Services Platform comes complete with an advanced management Virtualization Services user interface called the HP StorageWorks Virtualization Services Manager (VSM). VSM provides users Manager with an easy-to-use interface that facilitates the creation and management of SVSP virtual disks as well as the management of local and remote copies of data between the source and destination sites. A server based scriptable interface is also available allowing the creation of scripts that interface with the application and business processes such as backup. Thus it's possible to create transactionally also known as application consistent copies of the data.

HP SVSP Terms and Definitions

HP StorageWorks SAN Virtualization Services Platform

SVSP Domain: A virtualization subsystem in the SAN. The domain consists of two Virtualization Services Management (VSM) servers, two or four Data Path Modules, up to 64 array ports ( e.g. Sixteen 4-port arrays, Eight 8-port arrays), and up to 512 hosts. Stretched SVSP Domain: An SVSP domain that has one half of the components at each site within the metropolitan area SAN. Maximum separation is ms or 100 cable-km. Virtual Disk Group: A collection of one or more SVSP virtual disks, logically grouped together, usually for data consistency reasons. Asynchronous Mirror Group: A virtual disk group created for asynchronous remote mirroring. Destination Domain: An SVSP domain with data replication functionality, which acts as the target for a given asynchronous remote mirror group. Source Domain: An SVSP domain with data replication functionality, which acts as the originator for an asynchronous remote mirror group. Virtual Disk: A designated amount of storage space, typically with redundancy, drawn from a storage pool. Storage Pool: Capacity configured in the SVSP domain using back-end virtual disks from any supported array or stripe sets using multiple back-end virtual disks. Stripe Set: The capacity of up to four back-end virtual disks can be 'shuffled' in 1-MB segments, creating a single device that is now used to build a storage pool. Sync Mirror group: A virtual disk group created for synchronous local mirroring. DPM Group: A pair of DPMs that share access to the back end storage devices with other DPM groups in the same domain. Each group has a unique identity within the domain and presents a subset of the virtual disks to a subset of the servers.

HP StorageWorks SAN Virtualization Services Platform

Software Licensing Terms


Licenses (LTU) enable the capabilities of the SAN Virtualization Service Platform on EVA and other arrays that have been included in each SVSP domain. The available licenses are the SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager, SAN Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning, SAN Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy, and SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access, and are all sold in 1-TB capacity increments. Without the correct type of HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform license, the volume management, thin provisioning and data replication features of SAN Virtualization Services Platform are not available for configuration or utilization. A license key must be purchased in order to enable HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform capabilities. You can reference the licensing part numbers in this QuickSpecs in the section titled Ordering Information. The following is an overview of the ordering process for HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Management, SAN Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy, and SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access licenses. 1. Customers can purchase SAN Virtualization Services Platform for supported arrays. At installation time the HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform domain must include at least one EVA array and may include up to 16 (4-port) arrays, 8 (8-port) arrays or some combination not to exceed a total of 64 array ports. 2. SAN Virtualization Services Platform can include part or all of the available capacity of the EVA. For instance, if a customer has two EVA arrays with a total available capacity of 32 TB (after RAID), the customer can choose to include as little as 1 TB or as much as 32 TB in the SAN Virtualization Services Platform domain. Existing capacity not included in the SAN Virtualization Services Platform domain is managed via Command View EVA. Shortly after being added to the domain a non-HP array must be fully virtualized. 3. SAN Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy requires a base license of SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager of equal or greater capacity than the total of the locally (within a single domain) replicated data. 4. SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access requires a base license of equal or greater capacity of SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager for each remote copy of data involving two or more domains 5. SAN Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning requires a base license of SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager of equal or greater capacity than the physical capacity utilized. HP StorageWorks Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning licenses enable specified Virtual disks to be provisioned space efficiently with physical capacity as required for the data that has been written. Thin Provisioning license capacity must be greater than or equal to the physical capacity used by the virtual disk and any PiT, Snapshot, or Snapclone. Over time, as data is written to the thinly provisioned Virtual disks, the Thin Provisioned license capacity requirements will increase. NOTES: 1. Both remote replication and local replication features are managed with Virtualization Services Manager. For all of these features to be enabled, HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager, HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access (remote replication features) and HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy (local replication features) must be licensed.

The advantage is the fewer part numbers and the included services such as SVSP Business Copy and SVSP Thin Provisioning at the lower combined price. Example 2: The customer already has two EVA8100 arrays and purchases two new EVA8400 arrays and wants to implement SAN Virtualization Services Platform across those four arrays. In addition the customer needs to create point in time copies (SVSP Business Copies) of a five 10 TB databases (total 50 TB). Answer: The customer would need to purchase one SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle, two servers for the Virtualization Services Managers and enough capacity LTUs to meet the capacity desired in the SVSP domain using the tier structure. In addition the customer needs to purchase fifty* 1 TB LTUs of SVSP Business Copy of band (33-64) Alternatively the customer can purchase the starter kit plus 35 TB from the 33-64 band of VM to get to the 50 TB needed Business Copy LTUs. The advantage is the fewer part numbers and the included services such as 15 TB of SVSP Business Copy and SVSP Thin Provisioning at the lower combined price. Example 3: Customer has two EVA arrays (new or existing) at one site (Site A) and has two new or existing EVA arrays at another site (Site B) and wants to asynchronously replicate 50 TB of data between these two sites. Note there are no additional local copies of the data. Answer: In addition to the SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle and VSM servers needed at each site, the customer must purchase one hundred * 1TB LTUs of SVSP Continuous Access licenses from the 65-100 band, planning to use 50 at each site. Alternatively the customer can purchase two SVSP starter kits, plus the appropriate amount of volume management LTUs and the SVSP Continuous Access starter kit containing 10 TB of Continuous Access LTU. The remaining 90 TB of needed Continuous Access LTUs are purchased from the 65-100 band of SVSP Continuous Access LTUs. Example 4: Customer wants to create six* 2 TB (total 12 TB) virtual disks but anticipates that the capacity needs for these volumes will total less than 50% or 6 TB for the first year. Answer: Customer purchases one SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle and two servers for the Virtualization Services Managers for each site as well as an appropriate amount of the Volume Manager Licenses needed to create the storage pools. In addition the customer must purchase the 6 * 1 TB (band 0-15) of the SAN Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning License, The customer plans to monitor the usage of the volumes and expects to purchase additional Thin Provisioning licenses in a year to keep ahead of actual capacity usage. Alternatively the customer can purchase the SVSP starter kit which includes 15 TB of SVSP Thin Provisioning LTUs. The advantage is the fewer part numbers and the included services such as SVSP Volume Management and SVSP Business Copy at the lower combined price. Example 5: Customer wants to create a higher performance version of example 1 (32 TB of managed capacity).

Unlike storage-only vendors, we take a holistic approach to your entire environment, bridging storage, servers, blades, software and network infrastructures with our HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage. Protect your business beyond the warranty When it comes to robustness and reliability, standard warranties on today's computing equipment have matured just as the technologies have matured. Good news on some fronts-but also a source of potential problems and subsequent consequences that come from depending on standard warranties alone. Standard warranty protects against product defects and some causes of downtime- but not the business. By using a standard approach to warranty uplifts, such as HP Care Pack Services, you can reduce downtime risks and be more certain of operational consistency for both mission-critical and standard business computing. Simply put, HP Care Pack Services normalize the warranty of combined products - helping you proactively guard against unplanned downtime. Extending warranties with HP Care Pack Services For cost-effective upgrading or extending your standard warranty, HP Care Pack Services offer a suite of standard reactive hardware and software support services that are sold separately, or combined as with our Support Plus and Support Plus 24 services.
