HP StorageWorks
12000 Virtual Library
System EVA Gateway
Expanding the power of the HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA), the HP StorageWorks
12000 Virtual Library System EVA Gateway accelerates backup performance in complex SAN
environments while improving overall reliability. Integrating seamlessly into existing backup applications
and processes by emulating popular tape libraries and tape drives, the HP VLS 12000 EVA Gateway
matches the existing data protection environment, removing the need to change backup software or
monitoring policies. Additionally, because the VLS EVA Gateway uses HP EVAs as the storage pool, ease
of use is maintained throughout the system. By emulating multiple tape drives simultaneously, more
backup jobs can be done in parallel resulting in reduced backup times and, because the data resides on
disk, single file restores are exceptionally fast.
The HP Virtual Library System EVA Gateway simplifies your SAN environment by providing more virtual
devices and leveraging existing switches and HP EVA infrastructure. The result is the ability to vastly
increase scale yet reduce the complexity of shared storage while maintaining the manageability of the
system. As your environment changes, the HP Virtual Library System EVA Gateway adapts to it - host
masking and mapping ensure that only the appropriate hosts have access to the HP Virtual Library
System.

The HP StorageWorks IP Distance Gateway provides SAN over WAN connectivity for protecting and
replicating data between EVA systems. By connecting islands of SANs over WANs, the IP Distance
Gateway enables CA replication (Asynchronous and Synchronous), SAN device sharing, data migration
and other long distance data services. At the core of providing long distance data services is the ability to
copy, move and replicate data locally and over long distances. However, SANs have limited distance
capabilities (10km) and IT managers need to share, protect and move data over greater distances than
10km, routers and switches that link SANs over IP WANs is the weapon of choice for most IT managers.
The IP Distance Gateway uses the FCIP (Fibre Channel Internet Protocol) standard to extend SAN
connectivity over the WAN.

EVA with HP Systems
Enclosed as an accessory with all StorageWorks arrays is HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM). HP SIM is
Insight Manager Software the foundation for HP's unified server-storage strategy -- it is packaged as a no-cost, customer installable
management application and is derived from the heritage of Compaq Insight Manager, HP Toptools,
and HP Servicecontrol. HP SIM runs on HP Windows, Linux, and HP-UX and provides discovery and
identification, fault management, security administration, asset reporting, and centralized configuration
management across heterogeneous servers, storage and infrastructure. HP SIM is easily extensible,
integrating other HP management products and value-add plug-ins such as the ProLiant Essentials,
Integrity Essentials, and Server Essentials.
HP SIM relies on industry standards like SMI-S, SNMP, SSH, WBEM, and WMI to detect and report
heterogeneous device attributes. HP SIM may also be configured to launch array specific applications for
configuration, reporting and replication. For more information on HP Systems Insight Manager see:
http://www.docs.hp.com/en/netsys.html
Clustered Server and High Dual and multi-node cluster support is provided for host level fault tolerance and high system availability.

Multi-Server Shared
Support for Storage
Consolidation
Heterogeneous and homogeneous host support provides the ability to share storage between multiple
servers. The EVA provides storage access control (i.e. Selective Storage Presentation or LUN masking)
assuring that a host cannot access data belonging to a different host. SAN-based zoning is also
supported.
Single-pathing (Single
HBA per host)
Single-pathing (or single HBA per host) support is provided for all supported operating systems (but may
be version dependent). Use of single-pathing, which does not offer a redundant path option, should be
used with care. Failure of the single HBA will result in loss of access for that host until the HBA is
replaced.
Enclosure Capacity
The EVA provides one of the highest density disk storage solutions in the industry. The EVA8100 in the
42U HP 10000 G2 Series Rack supports up to twelve 3U 14-bay M5314C FC disk enclosures for a
maximum capacity of 168 disk drives and a maximum storage capacity of 168 TB of disk capacity. An
expansion cabinet allows users to expand with another six enclosures for a total of up to eighteen disk
enclosures, up to 240 disks, and up to 240TB.

10K rpm Drive Support
The EVA supports 300/450/600 GB 10K rpm dual-ported 2/4 Gb/s FC disk. The EVA4100 Starter Kits
or EVA4100 will support up to 56 disk drives. The EVA6100 will support up to 112 disk drives. An
EVA8100 will support up to 240 disk drives. The EVA arrays will support single or mixed drive capacities
and types (high performance and FATA) within an enclosure. HP recommends using the same drive type
(the same capacity) within a disk group because virtualization allocates space proportionate to the
highest capacity drive with in the group.
15K rpm Drive Support
The EVA also supports 146 GB, 300GB and 450GB15K rpm dual-ported 2/4 Gb/s FC disk drives. The
EVA arrays will support single or mixed drive capacities and types (high performance and FATA) within an
enclosure. HP recommends using the same drive type (the same capacity) within a disk group because
virtualization allocates space proportionate to the highest capacity drive within the group.
FATA Drive Support
The EVA supports 1TB dual ported 2 Gb/s Fibre Attached Technology Adapted (FATA) disk. An EVA will
support a full configuration of FATA disk drives up to the virtual device mapping limit. The EVA4100
Starter Kits, EVA4100/6100/8100 can be configured with any combination of FATA and high
performance disk drives; total raw capacity will vary based upon the redundancy (Vraid) selected. A
minimum of eight FATA drives are required in a configuration.
FATA drives are designed for lower duty cycle applications such as near on-line data replication for
back-up. These drives should not be used as a replacement for EVA's high performance, standard duty
cycle, Fibre Channel drives. Doing so could shorten the life of the drive.
NOTE: XCS V6.110 supports the 1TB FATA. It has virtual device mapping (addressable capacity) limits
of 80/80/200TB (EVA4000 & EVA4100/EVA6000 & EVA6100/EV8000 & EVA8100 respectively) .
Calculation of virtual device capacity includes all created virtual disks plus the mapped capacity of all
snapshot, snapclone and mirrorclones on the array. The potential to reach the limits vary with the usage
of the array. When installing a significant number of the 1TB FATA drives into an array contact your sales
or service representative to discuss your configuration requirements. Expansion of the virtual device
mapping limits will occur in Mid 2008.

Fibre Channel Technology The EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100 takes advantage of the benefits of Fibre Channel
(FC) in distance, performance and connectivity. The use of optical Fibre cabling allows distances between
connected segments of a SAN to be up to 500 meters @ 1 Gb/s; 300 meters @ 2 Gb/s using short
wave multi-mode cable and up to 10 kilometers (6.21 miles) @ 1 Gb/s when using long wave cable.
The EVA4100 Starter Kit and EVA4100/EVA6100/EVA 8100 with XCS v6.1100 for HSV200 and
HSV210 are 4 Gb/s enabled on each FC path, but will also support 2 Gb/s FC paths for backwards
compatibility. Storage Area Networks (SANs) can be constructed using FC switches/directors for fabric
connectivity (currently up to a maximum of 20 FC switches supported).
Fibre Channel
Switch/Director Support
Support for up to twenty FC switches operating at 2 Gb/s and FC switches operating at 4 Gb/s allow the
full benefits of a storage area network (SAN), providing exceptional connectivity while increasing the
effective bandwidth of the network. Supported SAN features include Zoning for communication isolation
and Inter-Switch Links (hops) up to 10 km. The EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100 supports
4 Gb/s FC enabled with XCS vv6.110.
For more information on specific support specifications see the following Switch URL:
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches.html
Transfer Speeds
The EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100 has two FC host interfaces per HSV200-B controller; four
for a controller pair. The EVA8100 has four FC host interfaces per HSV210-B controller; eight for a
controller pair. Each controller-to-host interface is 4 Gb/s. The controllers are also compatible with 2
Gb/s and 4 Gb/s FC switches, HBAs, servers and other storage solutions.
Each EVA controller pair interfaces with M5314C drive enclosures either directly or through fibre channel
loop switches. With 2 (for EVA4100/6100) and 4 (for EVA8100) device ports per controller and dual FC
I/O modules per drive enclosure, each controller can connect to each FC drive A and B port. So each
controller has a redundant path to each drive.
Easy Installation
The EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100 predefined models ship from the factory fully
configured. After unpacking, they can be plugged into power sources, connected to the FC SAN,
enabled and configured using Command View EVA and they are ready for use.
Installation and start-up services are part of the EVA Foundation Service Solution warranty and are
available on most of the EVA4100/6100/8100 offerings.
NOTE: Except in EMEA, installation and start-up services are not included in the purchase of the
EVA4100 Starter Kits, but are highly recommended.

Hot pluggable support
All EVA are configured with dual HSV controllers that operate in a redundant mode. Each controller has
redundant Fibre Channel (FC) host ports (2 for the EVA4100 Starter Kits EVA4100/6100 and 4 for the
EVA8100). Each EVA4100/6100 controller has two FC device ports and the EVA8100 controller has
four FC device ports. For the EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100 in the event of a path
failure, the alternate paths to the controller can be utilized with the use of multi-path software in the
Operating System or in Secure Path software.
On the EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100 each port connects to one FC I/O module on a drive
enclosure. Up to four drive enclosures can be connected in a FC loop arrangement with a controller pair
and connect to one port of up to 56 drives. With the two FC ports per controller, each controller can
connect to both ports on up to 56 disk drives for redundant paths to all 56 drives. On the EVA6100 each
port connects to a FC loop switch which in turn connects to one FC I/O module on up to eight drive
enclosures and to one port of up to 112 disk drives. On the EVA8100 each port connects to a FC loop
switch which in turn connects up to one FC I/O module on the drive enclosures and to one port of up to
168 disk drives. With the four FC ports, each controller can connect to both ports on up to 240 disk
drives for redundant paths to all 240 drives.
EVA8100 configurations, with more than four drive enclosures, are configured with two pairs of FC-AL
switches connected between the two controllers and the drive enclosures. Up to nine drive enclosures can
be redundantly connected to each pair of switches, which are redundantly connected to each controller.
Each loop switch is independently powered and cooled. Should one loop switch fail, it can be replaced
while I/Os continue through the remaining redundant loop switch.
The HSV controllers also have dual redundant hot plug power supplies and dual redundant hot plug
blowers. Each controller has hot plug cache batteries to maintain cache contents for up to 96 hours in
case of a total power failure.
The M5314C FC drive enclosure has dual redundant hot plug FC I/O modules that allow the controllers
to distribute I/Os between the two modules and provides redundant paths should either FC I/O module
become unavailable. The enclosure also has dual redundant hot plug power supplies and dual hot plug
blowers. The enclosure also has a hot plug Environmental Monitoring Unit (EMU) to monitor and report
the condition of the power supplies and fans. The EMU can be replaced without affecting I/O operations.
The FC and FATA disk drives have dual FC ports which can be redundantly accessed by each controller.
The drives are hot plug. The EVA, as a virtualized array, always provides striping of the drives across the
entire disk group. The drives can then be arranged, using redundant Vraid1 or Vraid5 protection, so that
a drive failure will not cause loss of data. Optional distributed sparing (virtual sparing) can be configured

so that a drive failure will trigger an automatic rebuild of the Vraid1 or Vraid5 data set into spare space.
The EVA sparing protection will utilize available disk space in the disk group and when that is exhausted,
the established virtual spare space. This methodology of using unused capacity can give customers the
ability to have many disk worth of spare space for maximum data availability protection and peace of
mind.
All EVAs have dual redundant power distribution. Two independent power cords distribute power through
two Power Distribution Units (PDUs) to each side of the EVA cabinets and to each power supply of the
controllers and to each power supply of the drive enclosures and to each of the FC loop switches. Each
cabinet power cord can be connected to independent power sources. For maximum availability, a
customer should provide redundant power from independent power circuit breakers, independent power
lines from the power company and even independent power companies.
Integration
HP EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100 models are 4Gb/s FC Switched Fabric "enabled"
and can operate on 4Gb/s or 2Gb/s FC Switched Fabric SANs. They can co-exist in the same FC SAN
with EVA3000 and EVA5000 FC storage solutions and many other SAN devices.
EVA Manageability
HP StorageWorks Command View EVA provides the capability to manage the EVA Array family in a SAN
or direct connect Fibre Channel host attach configuration. HP Command View EVA software runs on a
variety of server configurations; ProLiant DL380 G5 and DL585 G2 Storage Servers are the perfect
platforms from which to run Command View EVA. ProLiant Storage Server gateway models (including the
DL380 G5 x64 SAN Storage Server and DL585 G2 Storage Server) allow you to stretch your investment
by combining EVA management, file and print services, and iSCSI connectivity all on the same platform.
The powerful Command View EVA provides an easy mechanism to manage up to 16 EVA units in a SAN
configuration. Industry leading security enhancements in Command View now allows administrators to
take advantage of Windows domains and local groups. Command View integrates with Windows Active
Directory to authorize and authenticate users. In addition, all user actions and events that change system
state are logged. Administrators can now use the audit logging capabilities to see who did what and
when.
The Command View EVA media kits and license are required with all EVA models. HP Command View
EVA requires a License to use (LTUs) equal to, or greater than the total raw capacity of each array. For
the HP EVA4100 Starter Kits, Command View EVA software is included as well as licensing for up to 4
TBs as part of the bundled offering.
NOTE: HP Command View EVA software and up to 4-1 TB License to Use (LTU) are included in the
EVA4100 Starter Kits.

Performance
Fibre Channel host connections provide up to 200MB/s bandwidth for each path. Dual mirrored port
write caching capability, with battery backed cache, maintains optimal availability while assuring data
integrity in the event of a failure.
Each HSV200-B controller (for EVA4100 Starter Kits, EVA4100/6100 configurations) has two Fibre
Channel host ports (four ports in a redundant pair of controllers) assuring the availability of bandwidth
for the most demanding applications. In addition, up to 4GB of cache per controller pair ensures high
performance.
Each HSV210-B controller (for EVA8100 configurations) has four Fibre Channel host ports (eight ports in
a redundant pair of controllers) assuring the availability of bandwidth for the most stringent applications.
In addition, up to 8GB of cache per controller pair ensures high performance.
Scalability
A storage management server can manage up to 16 EVA controller pairs (EVA 3000s, EVA5000s,
EVA4x00 Starter Kits, EVA4x00s, EVA6x00s and/or EVA8x00s) in any one fabric. An EVA controller pair
will support up to 256 host connections (up to 1024 HBAs).
The EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100 will scale up to 56 disks (56TB using 1TB FATA disk drives, and
25.2TB using 450GB high performance disk drives).
The EVA6100 will scale up to 112 disks (112TB using 1TB FATA disk drives, and 50.4TB using 450 GB
high performance disk drives).
The EVA8100 will scale up to 168 disks in a single cabinet and with the addition of an optional utility
cabinet, an EVA8100 will scale up to 240 disks (240TB using 1TB FATA disk drives, and 108TB using
450GB high performance disk drives).
Configure to Order (CTO) options and the HP 10000 G2 Series Racks allow even greater server and
device integration, flexibility and scalability for the EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100.
Data center managers can customize server, storage and back-up configurations as well as using the
residual cabinet U space to mount Storage Management servers, switches and have the peace of mind
that it is built with HP factory precision manufacturing. The EVA8100 2C2D, 2C6D, and 2C12D, now
allows customers to configure-to-order their new EVA8100 units from HP manufacturing.

EVA as Virtualized Storage HP StorageWorks EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100 disk arrays can be connected as
behind the XP
external storage devices behind HP StorageWorks XP disk arrays.
The XP24000/XP20000 simplifies the management of heterogeneous SAN environments through its
ability to support up to 247 PB/ 96 PB respectively of external storage-all configured 'behind' a single XP.
XP External Storage software uses advanced virtualization technology to allow storage administrators to
host XP Disk Array LUNs on externally attached disk arrays. Any Fibre Channel port from any CHA pair
installed in any slot can be used to connect to external storage EVA4100 Starter Kits and
EVA4100/6100/8100.
With external EVA storage, XP presents multiple tiers of storage to a wide range of host systems. Instead
of seeing a confusing collection of arrays, host systems perceive all the data to be stored inside the XP
disk array. In effect, the XP disk array becomes the storage controller for a flexible, multi-tiered collection
of EVAs with a range of cost and performance capabilities. By configuring EVA storage arrays behind a
single XP24000/XP20000, data can be moved back and forth dynamically across tiers, all of which is
invisible to the applications.
The XP12000's virtualization feature also reduces the total cost of storage ownership by:
Exploiting common storage management across multiple vendors' systems
Easily deploying a dual-vendor policy
Facilitating simpler and lower cost data migrations
Increasing storage utilization
Extending the life of legacy storage

Racking Guidelines and
Power Distribution
Distribution Units (PDUs) according to the voltage used in the country the solution is ordered. These
PDUs provide redundant power and are located in the bottom and back of the cabinet for power cable
entrance by the floor. The PDUs are 220/240V. The 220/240V PDUs are 0U high with a total of two AC
power cords extending outside the cabinet.
For the EVA4100 Starter Kits, EVA4100, EVA6100 and EVA8100 a variety of HP 10000 G2 Series Rack
offerings and integration options are available. The EVA configurator tools utilize a 42U HP 10000 G2
Series Rack as the standard recommendation and will provide a 220/240V PDU and country specific
power cords. The EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100/8100 configurations can be customized to
meet a wide variety of customer needs. Both the height and types of rack and PDUs can be modified
based upon the specific customer need. If other devices, such as servers, switches or back-up devices,
are to be installed with the EVA; this can be specified and the cabinets and PDUs can be modified to
support the configuration. The EVA4100 Starter Kits and EVA4100/6100 also support 22U and 36U
racks and 100V PDUs.
For more information on configuration and PDU support for the 10000 G2 Series Rack please see the
following URL:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/racks/10000g2series.html
The EVA also supports the 5642 (42U) Rack Cabinet System as a field installed option.
NOTE: When adding additional devices to existing racks ensure that the installed PDUs will support the
new power requirements.
Total Cost of Ownership The unique virtual architecture allows up to twice the normal effective capacity utilization of traditionally
architected storage offerings. And with Virtually Capacity-Free Snapshot (Vsnap), significant duplicate
capacity requirements can be eliminated resulting in fewer/smaller storage acquisitions.
The EVA has one of the highest density disk storage solutions in the industry. Additionally, the unique

J.D. Power Gives HP a Seal of Approval 27-Nov-2005
Good service is a key factor in deciding which computer or printer to buy these days, and HewlettPackard hopes a customer service endorsement from J.D. Power and Associates will help boost sales of
HP products. HP said this week it is the first company to receive the J.D. Power and Associates Certified
Technology Service and Support certification "for providing an outstanding customer service
experience."
Consumers will soon see the J.D. Power and Associates service mark on product boxes, web sites and
advertising for everything from HP PCs and all-in-one devices to HP cameras and fee-based services. To
earn the certification, HP performed within the top 20 percent of technology support organizations on a
variety of customer service criteria. J.D. Power and Associates found that HP has met or exceeded this
new standard for customer satisfaction in supporting its North American customers.

Rules
Start your order by choosing a rack to house your EVA4100/6100/8100 based on
the HP 10000 G2 Series Rack.
NOTE: The 10000 G2 Series Rack is the only series supported for factory
configuration.
NOTE: When choosing an EVA configuration, start with an EVA configuration "equal
to" or "closest but smaller" than the desired final configuration. Factory configuration
rules will not allow a unit to be built up past the starting point for another standard
configuration. (For example for an EVA6100 2C6D choose an EVA6100 2C4D plus
2 M5314C; not an EVA4100 2C1D plus 5 M5314C enclosures and FC Dual loop
switch.) Orders that do not follow these conventions will be unable to be processed.
Use of the EVA Factory Integration part number is required for component integration.
The EVA4100 Starter Kits, EVA4100/6100/8100 will be configured into a 42U HP
10000 G2 Series Rack with the appropriate PDU. If other products such as servers or
back-up products are included in the cab a different PDU will be added (if required)
or can be chosen from a list of appropriate offerings shown in the configuration tool.
EVA8100 2C2D and 2C6D purchased without additional servers or products will
be racked in the center of the rack. When these configurations are purchased with
servers or other components the EVA will be racked from the bottom up. If a customer
has a specific racking requirement they should use the Factory Express option to
define the configuration.
HP 10000 G2 Series Rack must be purchased. Additional EVA4100 Starter Kits,
EVA4100/6100/8100 bundles and drive enclosures may be ordered for multiple
subsystem integration at the factory. Additional cabs are required to house
configurations beyond the U-space of the initial cabinet. Ballast and stabilizers will be
offered through the configurator tools for use when required.
The EVA4100/6100 and EVA8100 controller pair assemblies are only available for
field installation and should be chosen when field installation is required. HP Global
Services will perform the on-site installation when an EVA4100/6100 or EVA8100
controller pair assembly is ordered.
The 5642 (42U) Rack Cabinet System is supported for field installation. This racks
may be purchased along with EVA component pieces for assembly in the field. The HP
5642 rack system is an entry level rack with sufficient features for easy access and
ease of use.

Contains one Loopback connector. The loopback connector is used when an EVA host
port is not cabled to a switch or HBA (for direct connect).
NOTE: All EVA host ports must be filled with either a cable or loopback connector.
4 Gb/s SFP Fibre Channel Transceiver Kit
NOTE: Used on 4Gb switches with SFP Ports.
NOTE: Before selecting the FC cables to connect between the controllers and the
switches, check to see what kind of connectors are on the switches that will be
connected to the controllers. New switches utilize a Small Form-Factor Profile (SFP)
connector. The SFP connector can support 2Gb I/Os and/or 1Gb I/Os, but the device
connected to it may not currently be enabled for 2Gb. The SFP connector is also
referred to as an LC connector. The older large form factor 1Gb connector is also
referred to as an SC connecter.
NOTE: The 2Gb SFPs on the ports of the EVA4000 HSV100 and EVA6000 HSV200
controllers are a smaller form factor than 1Gb SFPs. One of these cables (either LC to
SC or LC to LC) is required per FC port of each HSV controller.
FC Short Wave 2-Meter Cable, LC/SC (1Gb to 2Gb)
FC Short Wave 5-Meter Cable, LC/SC (1Gb to 2Gb)
FC Short Wave 15-Meter Cable, LC/SC (1Gb to 2Gb)
FC Short Wave 30-Meter Cable, LC/SC (1Gb to 2Gb)
FC Short Wave 50-Meter Cable, LC/SC (1Gb to 2Gb)
NOTE: SFP - Small Form-Factor Profile on the ports of the EVA4x00/6x00/8x00. One
of these cables (LC to LC) is required per FC port of each HSV controller.

NOTES:
1Upgrading an EVA4100 to an EVA6100 does not require a controller replacement. 2 FC loop switches must be added creating an
EVA6100; which must then be licensed as an EVA6100. Command View EVA and array integrated software license (if previously
installed) for Business Copy EVA, Dynamic Capacity Manager and Continuous Access EVA upgrade licenses must be purchased.
2The addition of the loop switches or the addition of the EVA8100 controller assembly and loop switches requires down time and
would be an opportunity to upgrade firmware, hardware and software components.
3Proper Command View licensing requires a License To Use (LTUs) equal to, or greater than the total raw capacity of each array
and may be purchased in additive increments of 1TB or Unlimited LTUs). Correct licensing should be checked when expanding an
EVA4100.

Step 5.
NOTE: XCS V6.110 supports the 1TB FATA drive. XCS V6.110 has virtual device
mapping (addressable capacity) limits of 80TB/80TB /200TB (EVA4000 &
EVA4100/EVA6000 & EVA6100/EV8000 & EVA8100 respectively) . Calculation of
virtual device capacity includes all created virtual disks plus the mapped capacity of all
snapshot, snapclone and mirrorclones on the array. The potential to reach the limits
vary with the usage of the array. When installing a significant number of the 1TB FATA
drives into an array contact your sales or service representative to discuss your
configuration requirements. Expansion of the virtual device mapping limits will occur in
Mid 2008.
