Designed for No-SinglePoint-of-Failure
The EVA family's redundant architecture and value added software is designed to eliminate single-pointsof-failure from server to storage in clustered or single server configurations with multi-pathing.
HP 12000 Virtual Library Expanding the power of the HP Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA), the HP 12000 Virtual Library System EVA
System EVA Gateway
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 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.

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.

Product Highlights
Fibre Channel Technology The EVA6100takes 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/EVA6100/EVA 8100 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 EVA4100/6100/8100 supports 4 Gb/s FC enabled.
For more information on specific support specifications see the following Switch URL:
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches.html
Transfer Speeds
The EVA6100 has two FC host interfaces per HSV200-B controller; four 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 EVA6100 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 the EVA6100 offerings.

High Availability/ Fault
Tolerance/
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 EVA6100). Each EVA6100 controller has two FC
device ports. For the EVA6100in 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 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. .
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 EVA6100/ 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 other EVA FC storage solutions and
many other SAN devices.

EVA Manageability
HP 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.
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 EVA6100 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.
Scalability
A storage management server can manage up to 16 EVA controller pairs (EVA 3000s, EVA5000s, ,
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 EVA6100 will scale up to 112 disks (112TB using 1TB FATA disk drives, and 67.2TB using 600 GB
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 EVA6100. 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.

Product Highlights
EVA as Virtualized Storage HP EVA6100 disk arrays can be connected as external storage devices behind HP XP disk arrays.
behind the XP
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 EVA4100/6100/8100.
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

Cabinet Density
A single 42U EVA6100 cabinet can house up to 112TB of raw capacity (using 1TB FATA disks).
NOTE: Maximum cabinet capacity will vary based available upon U space. The total number of
controllers, enclosures supported and other devices.
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 EVA6100 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 EVA6100configurations 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.
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
virtual architecture allows up to twice the normal effective capacity utilization of traditionally architected

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 EVA6100 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 M5314COrders 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.
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.
EVA6100bundleand 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 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 controller pair assembly is

Step 9 - Optional Components and Software
Replication Management HP Business Copy EVA and HP Continuous Access EVA comes complete with HP Replication Solutions
Manager, a graphical user interface and scripting environment, that greatly simplifies storage
management by creating, running, and managing storage replication jobs using controller based
snapshots, clones and remote mirroring.
With HP Replication Solutions Manager users easily can manage both remote and local replication
across the full EVA product family. By virtually removing the complexity associated with both small and
large replication environments, point-in-time copies and remote replication are managed and configured
with just a few mouse clicks. To assist the user, Information on the replication environment is presented in
a variety of views, including an interactive topology manager that allows each user to select their viewing
preference. In addition, HP Replication Solutions manager provides a scripting interface for additional
flexibility.
Remote Replication
Software
Application Integration with Oracle
As an option to HP Business Copy EVA, the user can simply replicate an Oracle database. HP Replication
Solutions Manager will provide a graphical interface to view the components of the database to be
replicated, and allow selection of a specified database. The replication manager will automatically
suspend the Oracle application, and take a point in time copy (local or remote) of all associated array
virtual disks. The replication manager will provide the option to restart the original Oracle database after
