HP StorageWorks 12000 Expanding the power of the HP StorageWorks Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA), the HP StorageWorks
Virtual Library System EVA 12000 Virtual Library System EVA Gateway accelerates backup performance in complex SAN
Gateway
environments while improving overall reliability. Integrating seamlessly into existing backup applications
and processes by emulating popular tape libraries and tape drive formats, the HP VLS12000 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 Virtual Library System EVA Gateway offers advanced features such as Automigration which allows
users to move data under the control of the VLS from the VLS storage to tape or another VLS. The VLS
EVA Gateway also supports accelerated deduplication which delivers fast backup performance since the
deduplication process does not impact the backup. For more information on the VLS EVA Gateway,
please visit the link below:
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/disk_storage/disk_to_disk/vls/12000vls/index.html
EVA iSCSI Connectivity
EVA iSCSI support is available through the EVA iSCSI Connectivity Option. This powerful solution
provides iSCSI connectivity to an EVA utilizing the EVA's existing Fibre Channel infrastructure.
The HP StorageWorks EVA iSCSI Connectivity Option extends the advantages of Fibre Channel SANs into
smaller departments and remote locations. This EVA option allows customers to incorporate iSCSI servers
within SANs without requiring additional storage arrays or management costs. Use the EVA's Command
View software to manage the iSCSI connectivity to the array and mount the iSCSI device in the same rack
as the array.
For more information and operating system support:
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/evaiscsiconnect/index.html
The EVA also supports select ProLiant Storage Servers (i.e. NAS) connected as file/print/iSCSI gateways.
The ProLiant DL380 G5 x64 SAN Storage Server and DL585 G2 Storage Server each feature Microsoft's
Windows Unified Data Storage Server 2003 operating system that includes Microsoft iSCSI Software
Target standard, while other DL380 G5 Storage Server models offer optional support for Microsoft iSCSI
Software Target. Microsoft iSCSI Software Target leverages existing management expertise and
inexpensive Ethernet infrastructure to deliver IP-based block access to an EVA or Fibre Channel SAN. So
ProLiant Storage Servers with iSCSI target functionality not only add file and print services to your EVA
investment, but they help you save even more by enabling tiered (Fibre Channel and iSCSI) block access
for application servers.
In addition, any ProLiant DL380 G5 Storage Server or DL585 G2 Storage Server is a perfect platform
from which to run Command View EVA. You stretch your investment even further when you host EVA
management, file and print services, and iSCSI connectivity all from the same ProLiant Storage Server
gateway solution.

File services for the EVA are supported through the use of the EFS Clustered Gateway. Using File services
with the EVA eliminates having to manage silos of storage, File Services for the EVA creates a single,
integrated storage solution that provides both easy to manage application (block) services and scalable
files services.
This solution can serve both block and file data concurrently with high availability and scalable
performance. The solution is supported by a powerfully simple suite of management software making it
easy for users to achieve high levels of productivity.
File services through the EFS Clustered Gateway supports mid-range and enterprise customers wanting a
single storage solution for their block and file data, improved storage utilization, scalable throughput
performance to meet application specific demands for consistent high transaction I/O, easy capacity
expansion, instantaneous replication, simplified storage administration and high availability. Customers
can use this solution to consolidate their individual silos of storage to gain flexibility, reduce IT costs and
complexity as compared to traditionally architected storage solutions.
The EVA and file services solution supports both CIFS (windows) and NFS file serving. The components
can be factory integrated into the HP EVA6400/8400 arrays. The components required to implement file
services on the EVA are:
Two EFS Clustered Gateway serving nodes
One Ethernet Switch
Two 8Gb FC Switches
Installation and Startup
A file service solution provides the following benefits:
Integrates and simplifies providing a single storage solution for application (block) and file data
delivering high utilization and lower TCO
Uses a single set of management tools that can be invoked from anywhere, anytime, resulting in a
very operationally efficient environment to manage.
Combines state-of-the-art application (block) data performance and file serving performance, that
can scale as needs dictate, offers customer's aggregate performance levels far in excess of
traditional file servers and NAS appliances.
Additional capacity can be added quickly and easily with any combination of high performance
Fibre Channel and/or low cost FATA drives.
Uses state-of-the-art virtualization which improves performance, disk usage and TCO while the
single, shared pool of storage allows for easy dynamic expansion, which automatically distributes
data to avoid potential hot spots.
With fully redundant components such as SAN switches, array controllers, and file serving nodes
built into every unit, this solution is perfect for demanding mid-range and enterprise storage
applications.

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.

10000 G2 Series Rack supports up to 18 2U 12-bay M6412-A FC disk enclosures for a maximum
capacity of 216 disk drives and a maximum storage capacity of 216 TB in a single rack. For the
EVA8400 an expansion cabinet allows users to expand with another 9 enclosures for a total of up to 27
disk enclosures, providing support for up to 324 disks, and up to 324TB.
Utility Pricing solutions for HP offers a spectrum of offerings allowing customers to align their payments according to the usage of
StorageWorks EVA
storage capacity.
For customers requiring assistance in managing their storage infrastructure, Managed Storage
Solution (MSS) meets that need while providing the option to acquire storage on a utility model.
Customers have the ability to choose other options like Backup/Restore, Data Availability, Local
Copy and Remote Copy services. All these capabilities are offered at a $/GB/Month fee.
For customers that want to build and manage their own storage utility, Utility Ready Storage (URS)
provides customers with storage that never runs out; priced as the customer uses it; and is easy to
procure. URS pricing is based on $/GB/Month of average allocated capacity over the customer's
minimum commitment. URS provides a unique opportunity to allow customers access to storage
when they need it, permitting them to adapt to their changing business needs.
For customers whose need is best described by predictable growth, Pay per forecast (PPF), offered
from HP Financial Services, is an ideal fit. It is a step lease based solution where the payments are
structured upfront according to the customer's forecasted growth.
For even further demanding financial needs of customers, HP Financial Services are ready to craft
a customized solution for them.
NOTE: Support for Utility Ready Storage will be available after the introduction of the EVA6400 and
EVA8400. Please contact your local HP representative for further information
Solid State Disk Support
The EVA supports 72GB dual ported solid state fibre channel disk drives. The EVA arrays will support
mixed drive types (solid state disks, high performance and FATA) within an enclosure, The solid state disk
requires its own disk group. The minimum number of SSDs supported is 6 and the maximum is 8 per
array.
NOTE: SSDs support only Vraid 5 and some Business Copy features (Snapshots and MirrorClone) for
local replication.
High Performance Fibre The EVA supports 400 GB 10K rpm dual-ported 4 Gb/s FC and 146 GB, 300GB and 450GB 15K rpm

FATA Drive Support
The EVA supports 1TB dual ported 4 Gb/s Fibre Attached Technology Adapted (FATA) disk. An EVA will
support a full configuration of FATA disk drives. 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.
Please see the following URL for more information on FATA drives, their uses and their benefits:
http://h71028.www7.hp.com/ERC/downloads/5982-7353EN.pdf
Fibre Channel Technology The EVA6400/8400 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 EVA6400/8400 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 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. For more information on specific support specifications see the following Switch URL:
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches.html
Transfer Speeds
The EVA6400/8400 has four FC host interfaces per HSV400/450 controller; eight for a controller pair.
Each controller-to-host interface is 4 Gb/s. The controllers are also compatible with 2 Gb/s, 4 Gb/s and
8 Gb/s FC switches, HBAs, servers and other storage solutions.
Each EVA controller pair interfaces with M6412 drive enclosures through redundant fibre channel
arbitrated loops. With 4 per HSV400 for EVA6400 and 6 per HSV450 for EVA8400 device ports and
dual FC I/O modules per drive enclosure, each controller can connect to each FC drive A and B port via
redundant fibre channel loops. Each controller has a redundant path to each drive.

Hot pluggable support
All EVA are configured with dual HSV controllers that operate in a redundant mode. Each controller has
four redundant Fibre Channel (FC) host ports. Each EVA6400 and EVA8400 controller has four FC host
ports per controller. 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 software or Secure Path software.
EVA6400/8400 device ports connect to the FC I/O module on each drive enclosure via a fibre channel
arbitrated loop. Up to nine enclosures can be connected in a redundant FC loop arrangement
The EVA6400, with four fibre channel device ports per HSV400 controller, supports 2 redundant fibre
channel loops. Each controller can connect to both ports on up to 216 drives.
The EVA8400, with 6 device ports per HSV450 controller, supports 3 redundant fibre channel loops (6
loops total). Each controller can connect to both ports on up to 324 drives.
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 M6412-A FC drive enclosure has dual redundant hot plug FC I/O/Environmental Monitoring Unit
(EMU) 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 and the EMU functionality allows you
to monitor and report the condition of the power supplies and fans. . 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) The M6412-A drive enclosure provides point to point connectivity
within the enclosure.
The SSD, 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 Vraid 1, Vraid 5 or Vraid
6 protection, so that a drive failure will not cause loss of data. SSDs support Vraid 5. Optional distributed
sparing (virtual sparing) can be configured so that a drive failure will trigger an automatic rebuild of the
Vraid 1 or Vraid 5 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. Each cabinet power cord can be connected

from independent power circuit breakers, independent power lines from the power company and even
independent power companies.
Integration
HP EVA6400/8400 models are 4Gb/s FC Switched Fabric "enabled" and can operate on 8Gb/s, 4Gb/s
or 2Gb/s FC Switched Fabric SANs. They can co-exist in the same FC SAN with previous generations of
EVA, 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 using Windows Server 2003. 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 provide an audit trail. 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.
Performance
Fibre Channel host connections provide up to 400MB/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 HSV400 controller (for EVA6400 configurations) has four Fibre Channel host ports (eight 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 HSV450 controller (for EVA8400 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 22GB of cache per controller pair ensures high performance.

Scalability
A storage management server can manage up to 16 EVA controller pairs (EVA4400/6400/8400,
EVA4100/6100/8100s), EVA4000/6000/8000 and EVA3000/5000s in any one fabric. An EVA
controller pair will support up to 256 host connections (up to 1024 HBAs).
The EVA6400 will scale up to 216 disks in a single rack (216TB using 1TB FATA disk drives, and 97TB
using 450 GB high performance disk drives).
The EVA8400 will scale up to 216 disks in a single rack and with the addition of an expansion rack, up
to 324 disks (324TB using 1TB FATA disk drives, and 146TB 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 EVA6400/8400. Data center managers can customize
server, storage and back-up configurations as well as use any available cabinet U space to mount
Storage Management servers, switches and have the peace of mind that it is built with HP factory
precision manufacturing.
EVA as Virtualized Storage HP StorageWorks EVA6400/8400 disk arrays can be connected as external storage devices behind HP
behind the XP
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 EVA. 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

Product Highlights
Racking Guidelines and
Power Distribution
Power Distribution Units (PDUs) are configured according to the voltage used in the country when the
solution is ordered. These PDUs provide redundant power. They are located in the bottom of the rack,
taking 2U of rack space. To reclaim the 2U of rack space required by the PDUs, they may be moved to
the rear of the rack using the PDU Pivot Bracket Kit. It is factory or field installable.
For the EVA6400/8400 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. 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 EVA6400/8400 also supports
22U and 36U racks. The 47U rack is also supported, but not factory configured, because of the cabinet
height, which creates shipping limitations. It must be assembled on site.
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/index.html
The EVA also supports the 5642 (42U) Rack Cabinet System as a field installed option.
For more information on the 5642 rack, please see the following URL:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/racks/5000series/5642/index.html
Other PDUs, besides the 200 - 240 V single-phase default PDU, are also supported. This includes 100 127 volt single-phase, 200 - 240 volt three-phase, and 380 - 415 volt three-phase PDUs. Monitored
PDUs are also supported.
For more information on PDU support, please see the following URL:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/power-protection/pdu.html
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

Step 3 - Choose a Rack - Base and Factory Integration Information
Factory Integration
Start your order by choosing a rack to house your EVA6400/8400 based on the HP
10000 G2 Series Rack.
NOTE: The 10000 G2 Series Rack is the only series supported for factory
configuration.
Primary Configuration
Rules
Use of the EVA Factory Integration part number is required for component integration.
The EVA6400/8400may be configured into a 42U HP 10000 G2 Series Rack with
the appropriate PDU for the highest density in a Factory Integrated solution. If other
products such as servers or back-up products are included in the cab a different PDU
will be specified (if required) or can be chosen from a list of appropriate offerings
shown in the configuration tool.
The minimum EVA6400/8400 factory configured rack space required is:

NOTE: the 1U of space required by the PDU may be reclaimed by using the EVA Pivot
Hinge.
HP 10000 G2 Series Rack must be purchased. Additional EVA6400/8400, arrays
and drive enclosures may be ordered for multiple subsystem integration at the factory.
Additional racks 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 EVA6400 and EVA8400 array controllers are also available for field installation.
HP Global Services or a trained EVA service provider can perform the on-site
installation.
The 5642 (42U) Rack Cabinet System is supported for field installation. This rack 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.
When calculating available U-space, assume that no space will be placed between
the mounted components. For redundancy, order PDUs in quantities of two. Refer to
the Configuration and User Guide in the Information Library at the Rack Solutions
webpage.
