HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform
Overview
Targeted at enterprise and mid-size firms that are experiencing significant storage growth and adopting server virtualization, the HP
SAN Virtualization Services Platform or SVSP helps customers improve efficiency, simplify operations and lower TCO by enabling the
pooling and sharing of storage resources. With its innovative split-path architecture, the HP SVSP provides centrally managed
storage pooling and virtual volume provisioning of HP and non-HP storage resources. The HP SVSP enables high scalability, top
performance, and high availability of all SAN resources. It brings substantial improvements to managing enterprise storage,
reducing administration costs and improving asset utilization. It also offers a consistent set of storage and mobility services that
improves flexibility, protects data, and decreases business risk. Services offered include volume management, data migration, copy
services (clones and snapshots), synchronous and asynchronous mirroring and thin provisioning.
Finally, with the HP SVSP Starter Kits, you can start experiencing the benefits of a virtualized storage infrastructure a lot faster. The
Starter kits deliver all the outstanding capabilities and benefits of the SVSP technology, but in a more affordable, easier to adopt allinclusive packaging. that includes all the necessary hardware, software, and startup services in a single easy to order part number.
Customers will be able to easily expand the system as needed, in order to meet the requirements of their growing needs with the ala-carte existing portfolio, for ultimate investment protection. The Starter Kits also include a 1 year single user access to the SVSP
web based training.

HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform
Features and Benefits
SVSP Stretched Domain
Starting with Version 2.1 is the ability to stretch a domain across multiple computer rooms within the
same metropolitan area and the ability to add up to three additional pairs of DPMs for improved load
balancing and increased performance. Each of the two sites within the domain can now have up to 4
DPM's, where one DMP of each pair and one VSM are located in each site. Added in V2.1.1 is a utility to
help automate the recovery after a site failure in these stretched domains.
Asynchronous Bidirectional Remote
Replication
HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access is an asynchronous data replication (remote
mirroring) solution to support disaster tolerance requirements. HP SVSP Continuous Access works across
multiple arrays allowing remote mirroring between HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform management
domains. SVSP copies changes in the data via asynchronous replication to a remote SVSP domain.
Additionally, data replication can be bi-directional and multi-site, meaning that a SVSP domain can be
both a source and a destination for different data sets and supports up to three copies of the source
data. Utilizing point-in-time (PiT) updates taken at the source site and copied to the destination site, HP
SVSP Continuous Access is a complete disaster-tolerant storage solution that guarantees data integrity in
the event of a storage system or site failure. HP SVSP features built-in Fibre Channel over iSCSI protocol
services to enable HP SVSP Continuous Access data replication across IP networks.
Snapshot based asynchronous (async) replication is supported between SVSP domains for long distance
replication. The use of asynchronous snapshots may reduce infrastructure costs by allowing customers to
use less expensive infrastructure between sites. This is achieved by only replicating the changes that
occurred over small intervals of time rather than replicating every write.
For additional information, please check the "HP SAN Design Guide" at:
www.hp.com/go/SANDesignGuide
Thin Provisioning
HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning allows customers to create virtual disks with
large apparent capacity that only use a much smaller amount of physical capacity. As data is written to
these Thin Provisioned virtual disks, additional capacity is automatically allocated as necessary to store
the new data. A thin volume can grow up to its maximum created size, until available capacity within the
domain is consumed, or until the licensed capacity is consumed.
Local Replication
HP SVSP Business Copy provides local replication capabilities for local point-in-time (PiT) copies of data
using snapshots of data based on changes to virtual disks. Users create PiT copies of their environment
for potential future use. When they need it, they create a snapshot of that PiT which can be presented to
a server for backup or data mining operations. Both are virtual copies of the data. PiTs are only viewable
in the storage management interface, while snapshots are viewable by the hosts and the management
interface. Snapclones are asynchronous PiT clones (copies) of an existing virtual disk. Snapclones might
be used by customers who want to carve off a database for testing purposes. Snapshot and Snapclone
consistency groups (of up to 32 members) are available to preserve write-order consistency across
multiple virtual disks.
HP Virtualization Services A server based scriptable interface is also available allowing the creation of scripts that interface with the
Manager Command Line VSM management application and business processes such as backup. Thus it's possible to create
Interface
transactionally also known as application consistent copies of the data.

Stretched SVSP Domain:
Domain An SVSP domain that has one half of the components at each site within
the metropolitan area SAN. Maximum separation is ½ ms or 100 cable-km.
Virtual Disk Group:
Group A collection of one or more SVSP virtual disks, logically grouped together,
usually for data consistency reasons.
Asynchronous Mirror Group:
Group A virtual disk group created for asynchronous remote mirroring.
Destination Domain:
Domain An SVSP domain with data replication functionality, which acts as the target
for a given asynchronous remote mirror group.
Source Domain:
Domain An SVSP domain with data replication functionality, which acts as the originator
for an asynchronous remote mirror group.
Virtual Disk:
Disk A designated amount of storage space, typically with redundancy, drawn from a
storage pool.
Storage Pool:
Pool Capacity configured in the SVSP domain using Back-end logical units (e.g EVA
virtual disks) from any supported array or stripe sets using multiple Back-end LUs.
Stripe Set:
Set The capacity of up to four back-end LUs can be 'shuffled' in 1-MB segments, creating a
single device that is now used to build a storage pool.
Sync Mirror group:
group A pair of virtual disks created for the purpose of creating a local synchronous
mirror.
DPM Group:
Group A pair of DPMs that share access to the back end storage devices with other DPM
groups in the same domain. Each group has a unique identity within the domain and presents a
subset of the virtual disks to a subset of the servers.

Order based on the total usable capacity of the Back-end logical units (disks) that are
presented to SVSP back-end and used to build the SVSP storage pools. For example, if
a 30 TB of SVSP storage pool is needed, and then 30* 1 TB T5550A licenses are
needed. See section "HP SVSP order scenario" to review ordering examples with the
SVSP banding model.
When ordering licenses for multiple domains, the licensed capacity is aggregated so
that the band price that would apply is the one for the total capacity across the
multiple domains. This rule applies to all licenses VM, BC, CA and TP
NOTE: The VM storage pools are used to create virtual disks and any copies of virtual
disks. So you need to allocate & license sufficient space for both.

Order based on the total capacity of data to be stored in Thin Provisioned Virtual
disks. This total capacity must include the capacity of PiTs and Snapshots of the Thin
Provisioned Virtual disks in addition to the capacity of the parent Virtual disk. Note
that the capacity required will increase over time as data is written to the Virtual disk
and the dependant PiTs and Snapshots, so it is best practice to order sufficient
capacity to meet the anticipated needs and to routinely monitor usage until the next
planned purchase.

HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform
Ordering Information
Software Licensing Terms
Licenses (LTU) enable the capabilities of the SAN Virtualization Service Platform on EVA and other arrays that have been included in
each SVSP domain. The available licenses are the SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager, SAN Virtualization Services
Platform Thin Provisioning, SAN Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy, and SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous
Access, and are all sold in 1-TB capacity increments. Without the correct type of HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform license, the
volume management, thin provisioning and data replication features of SAN Virtualization Services Platform are not available for
configuration or utilization. A license key must be purchased in order to enable HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform capabilities.
You can reference the licensing part numbers in this QuickSpecs in the section titled Ordering Information.
The following is an overview of the ordering process for HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Management, SAN
Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy, and SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access licenses.
1. Customers can purchase SAN Virtualization Services Platform for supported arrays. At installation time the HP SAN
Virtualization Services Platform domain must include at least one EVA array and may include up to 32 (4-port) arrays, 16 (8port) arrays or some combination not to exceed a total of 128 array ports.
2. SAN Virtualization Services Platform can include part or all of the available capacity of the EVA. For instance, if a customer
has two EVA arrays with a total available capacity of 32 TB (after RAID), the customer can choose to include as little as 1 TB
or as much as 32 TB in the SAN Virtualization Services Platform domain. Existing capacity not included in the SAN
Virtualization Services Platform domain is managed via Command View EVA.
3. SAN Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy requires a base license of SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume
Manager of equal or greater capacity than the total of the locally (within a single domain) replicated data. Notice that BC is
licensed based on the capacity of the source volumes only
4. SAN Virtualization Services Platform Continuous Access requires a base license of equal or greater capacity of SAN
Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager for each remote copy of data involving two or more domains
5. SAN Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning requires a base license of SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume
Manager of equal or greater capacity than the physical capacity utilized. HP Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning
licenses enable specified Virtual disks to be provisioned space efficiently with physical capacity as required for the data that
has been written. Thin Provisioning license capacity must be greater than or equal to the physical capacity used by the virtual
disk and any PiT, Snapshot, or Snapclone. Over time, as data is written to the thinly provisioned Virtual disks, the Thin
Provisioned license capacity requirements will increase.
6. When ordering licenses for multiple domains, the licensed capacity is aggregated so that the band price that would apply is
the one for the total capacity across the multiple domains.
NOTES:
1. Both remote replication and local replication features are managed with Virtualization Services Manager. For all of these
features to be enabled, HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager, HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform
Continuous Access (remote replication features) and HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Business Copy (local replication
features) must be licensed. If any feature is not licensed, the action will fail and be logged in the event pane.
2. HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform monitors the amount of data being managed and replicated as compared to the
amount of data permitted to be replicated based on the License-To-Use (LTU) capacity. If this threshold is exceeded, a warning
event will be issued. The user must add the appropriate LTU to continue using HP EVA Virtualization Services.
3. Thin volumes subtract from the Thin Provisioning license based on used capacity.

Ordering Information
HP SAN Virtualization Services Platform Order Scenario Examples
Example 1: Customer currently owns four EVA8400 arrays, each with 25 TB available unconfigured (raw) capacities, and wants to
create a single SAN Virtualization Services Platform domain. Customer wants to create a domain of 32 TB, utilizing 8 TB of RAID 5
(10 TB unconfigured) from each array.
Answer: The customer orders one SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle and two servers for the Virtualization Services
Manager. Customer must purchase thirty-two* 1 TB LTUs for SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager 16-32 TB band.
Customer continues to manage capacity on each EVA8000 that is not included in the SAN Virtualization Services Platform domain
via EVA Command View.
Alternatively the customer can purchase the AP901C starter kit plus 17 TB from the 16-32 band of VM to get to the 32 TB needed.
The advantage is the fewer part numbers and the included services such as SVSP Business Copy and SVSP Thin Provisioning at the
lower combined price.
Example 2: The customer already has two EVA8100 arrays and purchases two new EVA8400 arrays and wants to implement SAN
Virtualization Services Platform across those four arrays. In addition the customer needs to create point in time copies (SVSP Business
Copies) of a five 10 TB databases (total 50 TB).
Answer: The customer would need to purchase one SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle, two servers for the Virtualization
Services Managers and enough capacity LTUs to meet the capacity desired in the SVSP domain using the tier structure. In addition
the customer needs to purchase fifty* 1 TB LTUs of SVSP Business Copy of band (33-64)
Alternatively the customer can purchase the AP901C starter kit plus 35 TB from the 33-64 band of VM to get to the 50 TB needed
Business Copy LTUs. The advantage is the fewer part numbers and the included services such as 15 TB of SVSP Business Copy and
SVSP Thin Provisioning at the lower combined price.
Example 3: Customer has two EVA arrays (new or existing) at one site (Site A) and has two new or existing EVA arrays at another site
(Site B) and wants to asynchronously replicate 50 TB of data between these two sites. Note there are no additional local copies of the
data.
Answer: In addition to the SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle and VSM servers needed at each site, the customer must
purchase one hundred * 1TB LTUs of SVSP Continuous Access licenses from the 65-100 band, planning to use 50 at each site.
Alternatively the customer can purchase two AP901C SVSP starter kits, plus the appropriate amount of volume management LTUs
and the SVSP Continuous Access starter kit containing 10 TB of Continuous Access LTU. The remaining 90 TB of needed Continuous
Access LTUs are purchased from the 65-100 band of SVSP Continuous Access LTUs.
Example 4: Customer wants to create six* 2 TB (total 12 TB) virtual disks but anticipates that the capacity needs for these volumes
will total less than 50% or 6 TB for the first year.
Answer: Customer purchases one SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle and two servers for the Virtualization Services
Managers for each site as well as an appropriate amount of the Volume Manager Licenses needed to create the storage pools. In
addition the customer must purchase the 6 * 1 TB (band 0-15) of the SAN Virtualization Services Platform Thin Provisioning License,
The customer plans to monitor the usage of the volumes and expects to purchase additional Thin Provisioning licenses in a year to
keep ahead of actual capacity usage.
Alternatively the customer can purchase the BV894A SVSP Base Starter Kit which includes 10 TB of SVSP Thin Provisioning LTUs. The
advantage is the fewer part numbers and the included service SVSP Volume Management.
Example 5: Customer wants to create a higher performance version of example 1 (32 TB of managed capacity).
Answer: The customer orders one SAN Virtualization Services Platform Bundle and two servers for the Virtualization Services
Manager. Customer must purchase thirty-two* 1 TB LTUs for SAN Virtualization Services Platform Volume Manager of band (16-32)
and three of the SVSP DPM 4 port LTU to enable all 16 ports on both DPMs.
