HP P6000 Command View Device Management Deployment Options
The array-based management version is supported on the EVA P6300, P6350, P6500 and P6550 EVAs and
is installed on the management module within the controller enclosure, which reduces the need for a
management server in many configurations.

Storage Device Management
Array-Based Management (ABM) is defined as running HP P6000 Command View management software on
the embedded management module on the P6300, P6350, P6500, P6550 or EVA4400 disk arrays. A
management server is still required to access certain features not available in an array-based
management module configuration. Those features are:
Ability to manage more than one array with a single instance of Command View software. P6000
CV/ABM manages only one array at a time.
Remote replication environments using Continuous Access, Cluster Extension (CLX) or Metro Cluster
software.
Deployment of the following array management software is different when used with CV/ABM:
HP P6000 Command View EVAPerf should be installed on a Windows server with a Fibre Channel
connection to the array.
HP P6000 Storage System Scripting Utility (SSSU) should be installed on a server with Ethernet
access to P6000 Command View/ABM.
HP P6000 SMI-S should be installed on a Windows server with Ethernet access to P6000 Command
View/ABM. This impacts Systems Insight Manager (SIM) and Storage Essentials software.
HP Insight Remote Support Advanced Software (HP Insight RSA) is not supported with Command
View/ABM. HP Insight Remote Support Standard (Insight RSS) is not supported with Command
View/ABM.
HP Insight Remote Support Standard (Insight RSS) is supported with Command View ABM.

HP P6000 Thin Provisioning Software
Overview
What's New
Product
Highlights/Benefits
HP P6000 Thin Provisioning provides the ability to create a vdisk such that the operating system sees more
capacity available than is physically allocated by the array. As the OS writes data to the vdisk, the firmware
will automatically allocate more space up to the size of the vdisk.
Thin Provisioning support for EVA P6000 array family
Optimized disk capacity
Vdisks share the same physical space within a virtualized storage pool, allowing multiple servers and
applications to access the data, maximizing the use of disk capacity, and eliminating storage silos and
stranded storage.
Lower initial CAPEX
DA - 13905 North America — Version 13 — January 31, 2014
Page 11
QuickSpecs
HP EVA P6000 Software Products
Storage Device Management
Optimizing disk capacity means that newly purchased storage systems require less initial storage,
presenting an opportunity to defer capital expenditures (CAPEX).
Lower long-term CAPEX
CAPEX over the long run is significantly improved in a number of ways. First, disk purchasing no longer
needs to be based on guesstimates of data growth for individual applications; thin provisioned Vdisks will
utilize disk space not presently used by other applications and provide it to high-growth applications.
Second, thin provisioning eliminates losing capacity to stranded storage. These efficiencies allow
managers to defer disk purchases-in some cases, for several quarters-to some point in the future where
both disk prices and the net present value of budgets are likely to be lower.
Greener IT
Allowing more servers to share a single thin provisioned storage system encourages storage system
consolidation, reducing system proliferation and simplifying IT operations that may have been complicated
by the addition of virtualized servers to the data center. Allocating minimal amounts of storage to each
user or process eliminates wasteful over-provisioning. Because a smaller number of efficiently used
storage devices can service a comparatively large number of client processes, data centers have lower
power and cooling requirements, can reduce floor space, and have a reduced carbon footprint, all
contributing to "greener" storage operations.
Easy capacity growth
Thin provisioning is automated, spawning an alert when utilization approaches a specified threshold.
Adding extra capacity requires no re-provisioning.
Reduced IT complexity
Licensing
Allowing multiple applications and servers to access a flexible storage pool eliminates the overhead
associated with managing stranded storage. Because more disk space is available, data that was
once spread over multiple silos within the data center (and beyond) can be consolidated onto fewer
arrays. Automated thin provisioning reduces management requirements associated with disk
provisioning, and consolidates management within a single, standards-compliant command
console.
Thin Provisioning is included free along with the P6000 Command View Software. Thin Provisioning license
enablement key is included along with the P6000 Command View license. We do not provide the 1 TB
licenses from P6000 series onwards. The licenses are not transferable from one array to another.

Storage Replication Management
HP Dynamic Capacity Management Software
Overview
What's New
Product Highlights
HP Dynamic Capacity Management Software provides a comprehensive solution that automates storage
provisioning and improves capacity utilization on the HP EVA P6000 family. Designed for the enterprise
market, DC-Management Software uses advanced automation to automatically "right-size" the supported
file system and the EVA P6000 Vdisk storage volume to the needs of an application. This dramatically
improves capacity utilization by allowing the administrator to simply specify a capacity utilization range of
the Vdisk. In some cases, P6000 EVA DC-Management Software can more than double storage utilization
when compared to traditional storage provisioning methods where utilization may be as low as 20% to
40%. Configuring EVA DC- Management Software policies takes just seconds with its effortless wizards and
advanced automation. The simple "set and forget" provisioning not only reduces the resource cost of
ongoing storage provisioning, but also allows for the potential postponement of additional capacity
purchases due to increased storage utilization. This also helps reduce the operational costs of powering
and cooling unnecessary storage while helping the environment by lowering the enterprise's carbon
footprint.
Support for EVA P6350/P6550 Storage
Automated provisioning for increased storage utilization
File systems and storage volumes are automatically expanded online as application needs
increase, or shrunk to reclaim unused capacity that can returned to the disk group for use by
other applications
Simple and Quick set up and configuration
It takes just seconds to configure, or change policies across multiple volumes. Once they are set, capacity
provisioning and reclamation are automatic allowing the administrator to focus on other business critical
tasks.
Reduces capital and operational expenses
Achieving higher capacity utilization rates reduces the need to purchase excess storage capacity and
software licenses. In addition, higher utilization results in less power and cooling requirements by reducing
the need for unnecessary disk drives.
Accelerates storage consolidation
Licensing
Improved capacity utilization allows more applications to be deployed on the same storage Array

Advanced replication local replication functions supported by the array firmware include the ability to
create modify and delete snapshots and clones. Other functionality such as mounting and unmounting of
volumes and interaction with production applications can be accomplished by using a scripting language
such as the HP Storage System Scripting Utility (SSSU) to create user-defined scripts or via the new CLUI.
Users can also manage both local and remote replication tasks through the use of HP Replication Solutions
Manager graphical user interface described in the next section. Single path configurations are supported.
Snapshots and clones are useful tools to facilitate data restores, minimize downtime for backups, perform
application testing, support data mining, and use in decision support tools.
Two methods for generation of basic local point-in-time copies through Business Copy EVA include (See
Replication Solutions Manager section for information on advanced management):
HP P6000 Command View can be used to create Snapshots, MirrorClones, Snapclones and Vsnaps
through a graphical user interface. This software runs on the Storage Management Appliance or
Windows based server in the SAN and can be accessed via a web browser.
HP Storage System Scripting Utility (SSSU) is included with the platform kits and can be used to
generate scripts on the host server to create snapshots, Vsnaps, MirrorClones and Snapclones. User
defined scripts can be created using this tool to manage replication at the array level.
Descriptions:
Snapshots: A standard snapshot (full allocated) is a point-in-time virtual copy of the data, created in
seconds and usable immediately, providing maximum flexibility for user applications. Disk capacity is
reserved to accommodate the original size of the source volume. This process may be completed by
allowing HP P6000 Business Copy software to automatically execute all tasks in the snapshot creation, or
DA - 13905 North America — Version 13 — January 31, 2014
Page 14
QuickSpecs
HP EVA P6000 Software Products
Storage Replication Management
by creating a target container (3-Phase) to accelerate the snapshot creation. Please review the HP P6000
Business Copy documentation for more information on this feature.
Vsnaps: Virtually capacity free snapshots (demand allocated) allow the user to create a point-in-time copy,
or demand allocated snapshot, of a specified Virtual Disk (LUN). Vsnap is similar to the standard snapshot
(fully allocated) except that it does not reserve the same amount of disk capacity as the production volume
being copied. The amount of disk capacity used by the copy volume will grow as data in the production
volume changes over time or if the Vsnap is set to read/write, and data is written directly to the Vsnap. The
result is that a Vsnap is a true space-efficient copy where capacity is not wasted reserving space. This
saves valuable capacity and reduces workload by automatically using space as needed.
MirrorClone: MirrorClone provides an alternative to a snapshot by allowing the user to make a full, bytefor-byte, point-in-time copy of a source LUN that can be mounted to a secondary server. MirrorClone will
track all changed blocks and can re-sync with the source LUN to create a new point-in-time copy, or can be
used to instantly restore the source.
Snapclones: A Snapclone is a complete clone copy of a specified Virtual Disk (LUN). With traditional arrays,
a clone can take hours to build depending on its size. Unlike traditional clones, HP Business Copy EVA
Snapclones are available virtually immediately. Within a few seconds of when the Snapclone is taken, the
entire clone copy is available for use. The Snapclone normalizes in the background so that no time is
wasted waiting for the copy to complete. Enterprise Snapclones can also be taken in any redundancy level
(RAID 0, 1, or 5). Snapclones provide the ability to take and use a clone without extensive advance
preparation. Long "re-synch" times are also eliminated with Snapclones since a current clone copy can be
available for use in minutes, not hours. Snapclones can also be created in different disk groups allowing
users to copy the data to lower cost drives such as FATA. This process may be completed by allowing HP
P6000 Business Copy software to automatically execute all tasks in the Snapclone creation, or by creating
a target container (3-Phase) to accelerate the Snapclone creation. Please review the HP P6000 Business
Copy software documentation for more information on this feature.
Dynamic LUN/RAID migration: Dynamic LUN/RAID Migration is a P6000 Business Copy software feature
that supports multiple tiers of storage and simplifies the repetitive and costly task of data migration
among these tiers. Infrequently used data can be moved easily to more space-efficient RAID levels and
lower-cost HDDs, and can be moved back to higher performance drives when needed. This requires little
operator intervention, reduces the risks historically associated with moving data, and reduces performance
slowdowns. Importantly, data remains continuously available so that data migration imposes fewer
interruptions to IT operations. The result is an opportunity to save on storage capital and operational
expenses, to increase data availability and I/O performance, and to configure data protection appropriate
for the value of the data.
Cross Vraid Snapshot and Snapclones: EVA allows for increased flexibility and improved capacity
utilization by supporting changing the Vraid type with Cross Vraid Snapshot and Snapclone, within the
same disk group and Cross Vraid Snapclone across disk groups. Cross Vraid Snapclone also supports
changing the Vraid type when Snapcloning from a high performance disk group to a FATA disk group.
Instant Restore: Users can restore a source volume using a normalized Snapclone, MirrorClone,
MirrorClone Snapshot, Snapshot or any other Vdisk of the same size. This allows for quick recovery of a
source should the volume become corrupted.

Manager graphical User graphical user interface and scripting environment, that greatly simplifies storage management by
creating, running, and managing storage replication jobs using controller based snapshots and clones. This

protection. With synchronous operations, both the source and destination
copies are identical and concurrent at all times. Synchronous mirroring
ensures that data copies are identical, to prevent critical data loss in the event
of a failure or disaster. In this mode, data is written simultaneously to the
mirrored cache of the local storage system and the remote storage system, in
real time, before the application I/O is completed, thus ensuring the highest
possible data consistency. Synchronous replication is appropriate when exact
consistency is critical to the business application.
