HP P4000 G2 SAN Solutions
Features and Benefits
All inclusive feature set enables enterprise functionality at an affordable price
Storage Clustering simplifies scalability
Storage Clustering allows a customer to consolidate multiple storage nodes into pools of storage. All available
capacity and performance is aggregated and available to every volume in the cluster. As storage needs increase
the HP P4000 G2 can scale performance and capacity on-line.
Network RAID delivers new levels of data availability
Network RAID stripes and protects multiple copies of data across a cluster of storage nodes, eliminating any
single point of failure in the HP P4000 G2 SAN. Applications have continuous data availability in the event of a
disk, controller, storage node, power, network, or site failure. Choose the right network RAID level for each volume
in the cluster based on capacity and performance needs.
Thin Provisioning reduces costs by increasing storage efficiency
Thin Provisioning allocates space only as data is actually written without requiring pre-allocation of storage. This
raises the overall utilization and efficiency of the HP P4000 G2 SAN, reduces costs and ultimately increases the
ROI.
Application Integrated Snapshots for VMware and Windows simplify data protection
Snapshots create thinly provisioned, instant point-in-time copies of data on a per-volume basis. Administrators
access snapshots to recover individual files from the volume, or rollback an entire volume. Built-in application
integration provides automated quiescing for VMware and Hyper-V VMs and Microsoft VSS applications.
Remote Copy reduces costs for disaster recovery
Remote Copy replicates snapshots between P4000 G2 SANs at primary/remote locations. Copies are thinly
provisioned with no space reservation required. Remote Copy enables centralized backup and disaster recovery
on a per-volume basis and leverages application integrated snapshots for faster recovery.
Superior availability and disaster recovery
Data remains available during site failures with P4000 Multi-Site Solution
HP P4000 G2 SANs stripe and protect multiple copies of data across a cluster of storage nodes, eliminating any
single point of failure in the SAN. Applications have continuous data availability in the event of a disk, controller,
storage node, power, network, or site failure.
Integrated replication for disaster recovery
HP P4000 G2 SANs include integrated replication at no additional cost that simplifies management with simple
failover and failback.
Change configurations without incurring downtime
Administrators can add capacity, increase performance, grow and migrate volumes between HP P4000 G2 SAN
clusters on the fly with no application downtime.
Scalable Performance
Purchase only what you need today
Avoid up-front cost and the potential performance constraints. Purchase only what's needed today, then grow the
performance, capacity, and redundancy of your P4000 G2 SAN online as storage requirements evolve. Buying
storage only when needed simplifies planning and relieves budget pressures.
Scale performance and capacity simultaneously
Each time a storage node is added to the P4000 G2 SAN, the capacity, performance, and redundancy of the
entire storage solution increases.
Avoid disruptive upgrades
Add resources to the P4000 G2 SAN non-disruptively as capacity and performance requirements increase.
Applications remain online during maintenance events (adding nodes, updating software or firmware) for best in
class availability.
10GbE upgrade available
Easy to manage SANs for virtualized environments
Centralized Management Console
Multiple data centers and sites can be managed from an all inclusive "single pane-of-glass." All of the P4000 G2
SAN features are managed from the Centralized Management Console (CMC) for simple, easy-to-manage
storage.

Product Features
Storage Clustering
SAN/iQ Storage Clustering allows a customer to create pools of storage by consolidating
storage nodes on the network into clusters. Storage Clustering provides online scalability,
both within a volume and across the entire storage pool. All available physical capacity is
aggregated and available to the volumes created on the SAN.
In order to scale capacity and/or performance, the IT administrator simply adds nodes to the
storage cluster. SAN/iQ software automatically redistributes the data for optimal data
availability and performance. All the capacity, processing power, and bandwidth included in
each node are aggregated into the entire SAN, ensuring an increase in performance as the
SAN grows. To make the process even easier, HP P4000 SANs let IT administrators expand
volumes and add storage nodes online, without taking the volumes offline or causing
application downtime.
Customers can use SAN/iQ Storage Clustering to implement different tiers of storage in their
SAN. For instance a storage cluster of SAS-based storage nodes can be implemented for
performance while a storage cluster of MDL SAS-based storage nodes is implemented for
higher density, all managed from a single interface.
Network RAID
For increased access to the SAN, customers can install storage nodes anywhere on the IP
network. P4000 nodes in a cluster can be spread out between several racks on a floor,
across several floors in a building, or across buildings on a campus site or a metropolitan
area. Typical round trip latency should be 2 milliseconds or less. A single P4000 SAN can
thus eliminate the risk of data loss in the event of a disk, controller, storage node, power,
network, or site failure.
SAN/iQ Network RAID stripes and protects multiple copies of data across a cluster of
storage nodes, eliminating any single point of failure in the HP P4000 G2 SAN. Applications
have continuous data availability in the event of a power, network, disk, controller, or entire
storage node failure.
SAN administrators can manage redundancy on a per-volume basis to optimize storage
utilization and match the data protection of the volume to the application data on that
volume. Customers choose from Network RAID level 0, 5, 6, 10, 10+1, or 10+2 to protect
data across the storage nodes, only allocating additional storage space for data that
warrants additional protection. For increased protection, Network RAID can also be
integrated into environments where application servers are clustered, enabling true,
seamless, geo-cluster solutions that provide both application and storage clustering across
geographies.
Thin Provisioning
Most SAN vendors place the provisioning burden on SAN administrators, asking them to
predict how much space will be needed in the future for volumes, snapshots and remote
copies, and what the SAN's expected growth rate will be. That information is required
because most storage provisioning models call for pre-allocation of storage space on the
SAN. Errors in estimation are inevitable, and can be expensive or cause snapshots and
backups to fail. Worse yet, if administrators over-allocate storage, it is nearly impossible to
reclaim that unused space.
P4000 G2 SANs do not require pre-allocation of storage space. SAN/iQ software manages
all the storage allocations underneath a given volume, and the Thin Provisioning feature
allocates space only as data is actually written to that volume. SAN/iQ Thin Provisioning
allows customers to purchase only the storage needed today and then add more storage to
the clusters as application data grows. This raises the overall utilization and efficiency of the
SAN and ultimately increases the ROI associated with the SAN.
Application Integrated Snapshots
The P4000 Application Aware Snapshot Manager provides allows for the creation of
application consistent snapshots of VMware and Hyper-V VMs and of Microsoft VSS
DA - 13552 Worldwide QuickSpecs — Version 15 — 2-13-2012
Page 21
QuickSpecs
HP P4000 G2 SAN Solutions
Software
enabled applications.
Application Integrated snapshots create instant point-in-time copies of data on a per-volume
basis. Snapshots can be created in a variety of ways to meet business or application
requirements. Administrators can create them manually ad-hoc, on a scheduled or scripted
basis, or via the Microsoft VSS framework, and can then access these point-in-time
snapshots to recover individual files or folders from the volume, or rollback an entire volume.
Unlike most SAN vendors that require a snapshot reservation, SAN/iQ Snapshots are
always thinly provisioned for efficiency, only consuming storage space on the SAN for the
data written to the snapshot, eliminating any upfront space reservation or guesswork that
could lead to snapshot and backup job failures.
Built into the P4000 SAN and Centralized Management Console, application integrated
snapshots provide automated quiescing for Microsoft VSS enabled applications without
additional software or hardware requirements. Sets of VSS snapshots are easily created,
scheduled, and recovered using the CMC.
Remote Copy
SAN/iQ Remote Copy lets customers replicate thin provisioned snapshots between primary
and remote locations. Because remote copies are thin provisioned no space reservation at
the remote location is required. Remote Copy is used for centralized backup and disaster
recovery and can be set up on a per-volume basis. Remote copies placed on a recurring
schedule allow customers to achieve point-in-time asynchronous replication of the data
between locations, sites, or data centers.
Integrated into the SAN/iQ Remote Copy software is intelligent bandwidth management
ensuring that the data traffic can be sent across shared WAN links without adversely
impacting other network traffic. Administrators simply set the bandwidth limit for remote
copies between the two sites and the SAN/iQ software holds that limit.
A failover/failback wizard is also included with Remote Copy for step-by-step, easy to
execute disaster recovery procedures when needed most.
Remote-Copy leverages application integrated snapshots to enable VMware and Hyper-V
VMs as well as Microsoft VSS applications to be replicated in a quiesced state, providing
faster application recovery.
Performance Management
The SAN/iQ Performance Management System is designed from the ground up to make it
easy to obtain the performance metrics that customers need, when they need them. One
click of the mouse and the Performance Monitor is up and running in the Centralized
Management Console (CMC) so there is no external software to install. The monitor
provides a short list of relevant statistics and counters, letting administrators obtain
performance metrics rolled up to their preferred level of abstraction.
The SAN/iQ Performance Monitor provides performance information on a per-application
server/virtual machine, logical volume, snapshot, storage cluster, and storage node basis,
so there's no wading through irrelevant statistics in search of pertinent information. The
Performance Monitor's graphical user interface is simple and elegant, and each statistic
includes a detailed explanation of what it means for SAN performance.
SmartClone Technology
SAN/iQ SmartClone technology instantly replicates data volumes and data sets into virtual
copies or "clones" without requiring additional storage space. Each volume clone lets
administrators save time and space in a variety of environments and applications, from
server and desktop provisioning, to boot-from-SAN provisioning, to the rapid copying of
production data into test and development environments.
SmartClone technology is based on the space-efficient SAN/iQ Thin Provisioning
architecture, and the volume clones can be used without limitation along with all other
SAN/iQ features like Network RAID, Thin Provisioning, Snapshot, and Remote Copy. The
feature works by taking any volume or snapshot and making one or many clones in an
instant. The cloning function makes a permanent, read/write volume on the SAN, pointing
back to the original volume's blocks instead of duplicating the blocks. By managing each
clone as a pervasive volume, SmartClone eliminates any requirement for a volume,
DA - 13552 Worldwide QuickSpecs — Version 15 — 2-13-2012

HP P4000 G2 SAN Solutions
Software
snapshot, or any of its predecessors to exist after the clone has been created, and also
eliminates the need to run de-duplication software, because there are no duplicate blocks.
The clone shares the original volume's blocks and uses copy-on-write semantics.
SmartClone technology reduces storage costs and increases overall storage efficiency.
Administrators can store "gold-master" system images on the SAN for virtual desktop and
boot-from-SAN implementations, and quickly provision test environments using real
production data. To simplify management, administrators can view all of the relationships
between clones, volumes, and snapshots graphically in the Control Management Console.
SmartClone technology leverages application integrated snapshots to enable Microsoft VSS
applications to be cloned in a quiesced state, providing easier application testing and
recovery.
Centralized Management Console
The entire HP P4000 SAN is managed from the SAN/iQ Centralized Management Console
(CMC). An administrator simply connects via the IP network to the storage nodes. Multiple
data centers and sites of storage can be managed from a "single pane-of-glass" no matter
where the nodes are physically located. The CMC also includes an integrated Performance
Monitor providing administrator with detailed, real-time metrics and the ability to export
statistics. All of the SAN/iQ features are managed from the CMC for simple, easy-to-manage
storage.
The SAN Status Home Page provides a single view of the entire storage environment.
Critical information such as Alerts and utilization is displayed for all Management Groups in
a single pane of glass.

Creating and end-toend IP SAN storage
solution
When combining a HP P4000 SAN Solution with the HP D2D Backup System, users can create an
affordable end-to-end IP SAN storage solution that is both easy to implement an easy to maintain.
From entry-level solutions for a remote or branch office to mid-range solutions that scale for
multiple sites, HP D2D Backup Systems provide the optimal balance of affordability,
manageability, and reliability to handle the data protection needs of your HP SAN Solution.
HP D2D4112 Backup
System
The HP D2D Backup Systems provide price leading disk-based data protection for small or
medium-sized data centers and distributed environments. Automate and consolidate the backup of
multiple servers onto a single, rack-mountable device. Improve reliability by reducing errors
caused by media handling. With 1.5 to 18 TB of usable capacity and speeds of up to 720 GB/hour
you can significantly reduce your backup window and restore time. The D2D Backup Systems
feature HP Dynamic deduplication allowing you to retain more data on disk for longer and enabling
low bandwidth replication for cost-effective off-site backup and recovery. Included as standard on
all D2D systems, support for both virtual tape library and NAS (CIFS only**) targets offers the ease
of use and flexibility needed to integrate into your current IT environment.
* Actual performance is dependent upon data set type, compression levels, number of data
streams, number of devices emulated and number of concurrent tasks, such as housekeeping or
replication.
** The addition of NAS as a target for backup is currently limited to the CIFS protocol, suitable for
use in Windows-only environments. The authentication models for the CIFS protocol are "no
authentication" or "local user level authentication". There is currently no support for Microsoft
Active Directory authentication. Support for the NFS protocol for use in LINUX/UNIX environments
and for Microsoft Active Directory authentication for the CIFS protocol will follow later in the year.
The HP D2D4112 Backup System is focused on the needs of mid-sized data centers and used as
a replication target device for remote and branch offices, the 2U D2D4112 series delivers a
scalable solution from 9 to 18 TB of useable capacity using a simple and cost effective 2U
capacity upgrade and speeds of up to 720 GB/hour*. These devices automate the daily backup of
multiple distributed servers through the flexibility of virtual tape library and NAS (CIFS only**)
targets for backup applications.

Step 3 - Other P4000 SANs Options
Description
Two 6' Highline (IEC-IEC) power cord ships standard per P4300/P4500 Node
NOTE: HP P4300/P4500 Storage Systems servers no longer ship standard with NEMA power cords (P/N 163719-002) that
allow connection to 110V US wall outlets in a home or office. HP P4000 Storage Systems are primarily connected to PDU's
in data center racks so they now ship standard with only a PDU power cord (416151-B21). If a user wishes to power a HP
P4000 Storage Systems using a 110V receptacle (NEMA-15), the NEMA power cord (AF556A) must be ordered separately.
If customers require a power cord, they can check the power cord matrix for the appropriate cord. Please see the UPS and
PDU cable matrix's on the Power Protection page under Power Cords that lists cable descriptions, requirements, and
specifications for UPS and PDU units at the new HP Power Cord Link @ HP.com. Use the following new link:
www.hp.com/products/powercords
NOTE: Rack models ship standard with IEC cables.
Step 4 - Choose Supported Options For iSCSI Infrastructure
Select each required option with quantities specified. The P4000 G2 SANs support servers with industry standard Gigabit
and 10 Gigabit (SFP+) Ethernet components from various manufacturers that conform to IEEE 802.3ab (1000base-T)
standards.

Step 5 - Choose Rack Options
Select each required option with quantities specified.
Rack Airflow
Rack 10000 G2 series Cabinets
Requirements
The increasing power of new high-performance processor technology requires increased cooling
efficiency for rack-mounted servers. The 10000 G2 Series Racks provide enhanced airflow for
maximum cooling, allowing these racks to be fully loaded with servers using the latest processors.
CAUTION: If a third-party rack is used, observe the following additional requirements to ensure
adequate airflow and to prevent damage to the equipment: Front and rear doors: If your 42U
server rack includes closing front and rear doors, you must allow 830 square inches (5,350 sq cm)
of hole evenly distributed from top to bottom to permit adequate airflow (equivalent to the required
64 percent open area for ventilation). Side: The clearance between the installed rack component
and the side panels of the rack must be a minimum of 2.75 inches (7 cm).
CAUTION: Always use blanking panels to fill all remaining empty front panel U-spaces in the rack.
This arrangement ensures proper airflow. Using a rack without blanking panels results in improper
cooling that can lead to thermal damage.
Rack Kit
HP P4000 G2 rack models have fixed rails which provide support for racks with round mounting
holes and tool-free support for racks with square mounting holes (including Compaq/HP 7000,
9000, 10000 and HP series), with an adjustment range of 26" - 36".
Telco Rack Support
Support for all 2 and 4 post Telco racks and threaded hole racks requires an additional option kit
from Rack Solutions. The Rack Solutions brackets can be purchased at:
www.hp.com/go/rackandpower.
NOTE: Cat5e cables are required to connect Interface Adapters to Console Switches. Cat5e
cables can be found at the following URL: http://www.hp.com/go/kvm.
NOTE: It is mandatory to use a shock pallet when shipping racks with equipment installed.
