for implementing remote mirroring of an SAP database as part of an overall data protection strategy with
SAP applications can be found at: http://h71028.www7.hp.com/erc/downloads/4aa1-5683Enw.pdf
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.
Low Cost SAN over WAN Connectivity
High Performance with data compression and load balancing

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 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 will also be able to take advantage of data deduplication when that feature is
launched in early 2008. For more information on the VLS EVA Gateway, please visit the link below:

HP and Data Protector
Software
By combining the EVA with Data Protector software, administrators can avoid many of the challenges
associated with virtual server backup:
Server performance degradation as backups impact both the physical server and all of its virtual
machines
Time, effort and risk associated with restoring crash-consistent backups that result from many
current virtual backup methods
The complexity associated with using different tools to back up virtual and physical servers
By providing seamless integration, HP leverages the strengths of both its hardware and software to
provide the most complete and integrated solution for virtual server backup in the industry. Separately,
HP EVA and HP Data Protector solve critical needs that enable customers to achieve the true benefits that
virtualized environments offer, increasing efficiency and lowering costs. Together, HP provides an end to
end solution that is completely automated, managed and controlled from one user interface, for
complete, fast data protection with no impact to the virtual environment. HP is the only vendor providing
this level of automation for VMware or Hyper-V.
Data Protector provides robust support for virtual environments and allows customers to choose any
hypervisor. For VMware and Microsoft virtual environments, the EVA + Data Protector's ZDB/IR offer a
particularly powerful solution. In Hyper-V environments, the Data Protector Zero Downtime Backup
agent creates transportable VSS snapshots which are made available for Instant Recovery. All operations
are performed with zero impact to the Hyper-V host server and virtual machines. For VMware
environments, the ZDB/IR agent first takes a snapshot of data on the virtual machine (VM) and migrates
the snapshot to a proxy host. Backup operations are then performed on the snapshot. ZDB enables
customers to instantly copy data to disk and then, at their convenience, back up that disk copy to tape.
This "staged backup" process enables business applications to stay online 7x24, maintain businesscritical application performance, and protect critical data. These solutions allows administrators to avoid
many of the challenges associated with virtual server backup:
Impact-free backup at all layers
No load on the servers or VMs
Instantaneous recovery of all application data
Manage everything from one, easy-to-use interface, without scripts or 3rd party utilities

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 EVA4400 provides one of the highest density disk storage solutions in its class of product. The
EVA4400 can be configured in 18U of rack space with eight 2U 12-bay M6412A FC disk enclosures for
a maximum capacity of 96 disk drives and a maximum storage capacity of 96 TB of disk capacity. The
EVA4400 supports the HP 10000 G2 series racks.

HP 4400 Enterprise Virtual Array
Product Highlights
Solid State Drive Support The EVA supports 72 GB, 200 GB, and 400 GB dual ported fibre channel enterprise solid state drives
(SSDs). The EVA arrays support mixed drive types (SSDs, high performance, and FATA) within an
enclosure. The solid state drives require their own disk group. The minimum number of SSDs supported
is 6 and the maximum is 8 per array.
NOTE: SSD are supported with Vraid 1 and Vraid 5 only. SSDs are supported with Business Copy EVA,
but are not currently supported with Continuous Access EVA.
10K rpm Drive Support
The EVA supports the 300GB, 450GB, and 600GB reduced power 10K rpm dual-ported 4 Gb/s FC
disk drives. The EVA4400 supports up to 96 disk drives. The EVA4400 array supports single or mixed
drive capacities and types (SSDs, 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. A minimum of eight high performance Fibre
Channel drives are required in a configuration using high performance drives.
15K rpm Drive Support
The EVA also supports 300GB, 450GB, and 600GB 15K rpm dual-ported 4 Gb/s FC disk drives. The
EVA arrays support single or mixed drive capacities and types (SSDs, 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. A
minimum of eight high performance Fibre Channel drives are required in a configuration using high
performance drives.
FATA Drive Support
The EVA supports 1TB and 2TB dual ported 4 Gb/s Fibre Attached Technology Adapted (FATA) disks. An
EVA will support a full configuration of FATA disk drives. The EVA4400 Starter Kits and the EVA4400
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 using FATA drives.
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 high performance, standard duty
cycle, Fibre Channel drives. Doing so could shorten the life of the drive.
FATA drives are not recommended in Continuous Access applications as the remote storage location for
local data residing on standard higher speed disk drives. Continuous Access tends to perform fairly high
duty cycle random writes to the remote disk array. Matching remote FATA drives with local FC drives will
impact the performance of your application, and will adversely impact the reliability of the FATA drives.

Fibre Channel
Technology
The EVA4400 models are 4Gb/s FC Switched Fabric enabled and are compatible with 8Gb/s, 4Gb/s or
2Gb/s FC Switched Fabric SANs with XCS v10.0. They can co-exist in the same FC SAN with
EVA3000/5000 or EVA4x00/6x00/8x00 FC storage solutions and many other SAN devices. The
EVA4400 with embedded switch model is 8Gb/s FC ready. The embedded switch is an 8Gb/s, 10 port
B-series SAN switch for a total of 20 ports per controller enclosure.
The EVA4400 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, 150 meters @ 4
Gb/s and up to 10 kilometers (6.21 miles) @ 1 Gb/s when using long wave cable. Storage Area
Networks (SANs) can be constructed using FC switches/directors for fabric connectivity. HP SAN B-series
and C-series switches and directors provide 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 SAN Infrastructure URL:
http://h18006.www1.hp.com/storage/saninfrastructure/switches.html
Transfer Speeds
The EVA4400 Starter Kits and EVA4400 have two FC host ports per HSV300 or HSV300-S controller;
four for a controller pair. Each controller-to-host interface is 4 Gb/s. The HSV300 and HSV300-S
controllers are compatible with 2 Gb/s and 4 Gb/s FC switches (if required), HBAs, servers and other
storage solutions.
Each EVA controller pair interfaces with the M6412A drive enclosures. With 2 device ports per controller
and dual FC I/O modules per drive enclosure, each controller has two connections to each FC drive A
and B port. So each controller has a redundant path to each drive.
Easy Installation
The EVA4400 can ship from the factory fully configured. After unpacking, it can be plugged into power
sources, connected to the FC SAN, enabled and configured using HP SmartStart for EVA Storage and
Command View EVA and it is ready for use. Installation and start-up services are not required but are
available separately.

High Availability/ Fault
Tolerance/
Hot pluggable support
All EVA4400s are configured with dual HSV controllers that operate in a redundant mode. Each
EVA4400 controller has two FC device ports. For EVA4400, 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 in Secure Path software.
On the EVA4400, each port connects to one FC I/O module on a drive enclosure. Up to eight drive
enclosures can be connected in a FC loop arrangement with a controller pair and connect to one port of
up to 96 drives. With the two FC ports per controller, each controller can connect to both ports on up to
96 disk drives for redundant paths to all 96 drives.
The HSV300 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 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. Environmental Monitoring Unit (EMU) functionality is built into the I/O module in the enclosure
and monitors and reports the condition of the power supplies and fans.
The FC and FATA disk drives have dual FC ports which can be redundantly accessed by each controller.
The drives are hot plug. The drives can be configured, using redundant Vraid1 or Vraid5 protection, so
that a drive failure will not cause loss of data. Optional virtual sparing can be configured so that a drive
failure will trigger an automatic rebuild of the Vraid1 or Vraid5 protection using the virtual spare.
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
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.
The EVA4400 with embedded switch model also includes two 10 port 8Gb/s FC SAN B-series switches.
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 using Windows Server 2003. HP X1800, X3400, X3800 Network Storage Systems
are the perfect platforms from which to run Command View EVA. HP Network Storage Systems 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 HSV300 controller has two Fibre Channel host ports (four ports in a redundant pair of controllers)
assuring the availability of bandwidth for the most demanding applications. For the Embedded Switch
controllers, the host ports are connected internally to the embedded switches and are not available
externally. Twenty 8Gb/s SAN ports are available externally for SAN connections.
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 (EVA4400, EVA3000s,
EVA5000s, EVA4x00s, EVA6x00s and/or EVA8x00s) in any one fabric. An EVA4400 controller pair will
support up to 256 multi-path host connections (up to 1024 HBAs).
The EVA4400 will scale up to 96 disks (96TB using 1TB FATA disk drives, and 57.6TB 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 EVA4400. Data center managers can customize
server, storage and back-up configurations as well as using the residual cabinet U space to mount
management servers, switches and have the peace of mind that it is built with HP factory precision
manufacturing.
EVA as Virtualized
Storage behind the
P9500 and XP
HP EVA4400 disk arrays can be connected as external storage devices behind the HP P9500 and XP
family of disk arrays.
The P9500/XP24000/XP20000 simplifies the management of heterogeneous SAN environments through
its ability to support up to 255PB/ 247 PB/ 96 PB respectively of external storage-all configured 'behind'
a single P9500/XP. P9000/XP External Storage software uses advanced virtualization technology to
allow storage administrators to host P9500/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.
Instead of seeing a confusing collection of dissimilar arrays, host systems perceive all the data to be
stored inside the P9500/XP disk array. In effect, the P9500/XP becomes the storage controller for a
flexible, multi-tiered collection of storage with a range of cost and performance capabilities. By
configuring current or legacy storage systems behind a single P9500/XP24000/XP20000, data can be
moved back and forth dynamically across tiers, all of which is invisible to the applications.
The P9500/XP 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 and back of
the cabinet, taking 1U of rack space.
For the EVA4400, 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 200 - 240V PDU and country specific power cords. However, the EVA4400
configurations can be customized to meet a wide variety of customer needs. The height, width (including
the 800mm wide rack) 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 EVA4400
also supports 22U and 36U racks. The 47U rack is also supported, but not factory configured, because
of the cabinet height, which creates shipping difficulties. It must be assembled on site.
For more information on the HP rack offerings, please see the following URL:
http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantstorage/racks/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
When installing the EVA Enclosures in extended depth racks (AF091A, AF092A, AF094A, or AF097A), 1
each of the longer Power Jumper Cord listed is required for each EVA Controller or Drive Enclosure on
the order.
NOTE: When adding additional devices to existing racks ensure that the installed PDUs will support the
new power requirements.
NOTE: The EVA does not support communication with an Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) device.
However, an EVA can be used with a UPS to extend the cache hold-up time of the EVA past the 96 hours
provided by the cache batteries. The EVA Power Calculator will allow customers to approximate the
electrical load for a given EVA configuration for facilities planning purposes and UPS sizing.
NOTE: For detailed information on determining compatibility of a non-HP rack, please review the
information included in the EVA User Guide which can be found at" http://www.hp.com/go/eva.
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
storage offerings. And with the virtually Capacity-Free Snapshot (Vsnap), FATA disk drives and the ability
to change Vraid types, significant amount of duplicate capacity requirements can be eliminated, resulting
in fewer/smaller storage acquisitions.

NOTE: Typical is described as a system in normal steady state operation. (I.e., both PDUs operating normally, the array
reading/writing to disk drives in a production environment)
NOTE: For the lower voltages, PDUs may not be able to support the maximum power/current and the power/current may be divided
across two or more PDUs.
NOTE: For more detailed information on a specific configuration and drives please utilize the EVA Power Calculator at:
http://www.hp.com/servers/powercalculator
* Total system wattage would increase by 85 watts with the embedded switch option. Input current would increase as well.
