HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage
Standard Features
Efficient
Get thin and stay thin - Thin technologies unique to the HP 3PAR StoreServ family can reduce capacity
requirements by 50%. Purchase only what you need, as you need it so you can focus resources on growing
your business, not maintaining your storage. Additionally, the HP 3PAR ASIC with Thin Built In features an
efficient, silicon-based zero-detection mechanism. This unique hardware capability gives HP 3PAR
StoreServ Storage the power to remove allocated but unused space without impacting performance.
Data center virtualization - Increase virtualization return on investment. Double virtual machine density on
your physical servers, spend up to 90 percent less time managing your storage, and support your
virtualization deployment with 50 percent less storage capacity. HP 3PAR StoreServ is built from the
ground up to deliver performance that exceeds the demands of virtualized data centers along with
transformative levels of simplicity, agility, and efficiency.
Service levels - With policy-based autonomic sub-LUN tiering, you can balance the cost of capacity and the
cost of performance and put the right data on the right storage tier at the right time.
Do more with less - With HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage you can purchase up to 75 percent less capacitymeaning less equipment to house, fewer disks to power and cool, less hardware to retire after it has
reached its end of life, and a reduced carbon footprint.
Autonomic
It's like breathing-you don't even have to think about it. Simplify, automate, and expedite storage
management by handling storage provisioning, tiering, and change management autonomicallyintelligently, at a sub-system level, and without administrator intervention.
SmartStart Software - software designed to get you off to a quick start with your new HP 3PAR StoreServ
7000 system.
Common architecture - Access the same features as the world's largest service providers with a common
architecture that meets SMB needs and spans to the largest global enterprise.
Resilient
Secure multi-tenancy - Consolidate with confidence. Achieve higher service levels for more users and
applications with less infrastructure. HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage is designed to support massive
consolidation by supporting mixed workloads and secure administrative segregation of users, hosts, and
application data. Deliver higher performance levels, greater availability, and next-generation functionality
to multiple user groups and applications from a single storage system.
Scalable - HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 provides affordable entry pricing and unique, non-disruptive scalability
to four nodes.
High Availability - Featuring the same mesh-active architecture as all HP 3PAR StoreServ products, HP
3PAR StoreServ 7000 offers the highest levels of data availability and protection for the midrange.
Intelligent data striping across all available enclosures provides HA Cage, the ability to maintain
availability even when a whole drive enclosure fails. HP 3PAR Persistent Cache in four node configurations
eliminates performance impacts that result from unplanned component failures, making it a must-have
for maintaining service levels in the virtual data center-a feature that you can't get from any other
midrange storage platform.
Storage federation - Meet the needs of today's data center with the ability to move data and workloads
between arrays without impact to applications, users, or services. Simply and non-disruptively shift data
between any model HP 3PAR StoreServ system without additional management layers or appliances.

Standard Features
Storage federation on HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage can also help you improve availability in clustered
VMware environments.
Mixed workload - Mixed workload support serves transactional and throughput-intensive workloads from
a single device. The purpose-built HP 3PAR ASIC delivers mixed workload support to alleviate performance
concerns and cut traditional array costs. Transaction- and throughput-intensive workloads run on the
same storage resources without contention, thereby cutting array purchases in half.
Data at Rest Encryption - enables the encryption for all the data that is stored on the internal drives of the
3PAR StoreServ Storage. The 3PAR StoreServ Data Encryption solution encrypts and decrypts all data
written to and read from the media automatically. The 3PAR StoreServ Data Encryption solution encrypts
the data so that data cannot be read off a drive that is removed from the 3PAR Storage. In the event of a
failure of the drive or the theft of a drive, the proper authentication key is required to be entered to gain
access to the data stored within the drive. This method of encryption allows the user the comfort knowing
all data contained on the drive is protected against internal and external risks.

Protect your business beyond warranty
Warranty protects against manufacturer defects, however warranty uplifts, such as HP Care Pack Services
protect the business-by reducing downtime risks and providing operational consistency for missioncritical and standard business computing.
NOTE: SSDs have a limited number of writes that can occur before reaching the SSD's write endurance
limit. This limit is generally high enough so wear out will not occur during the expected service life of an HP
3PAR StoreServ under the great majority of configurations, IO patterns, and workloads. HP 3PAR
StoreServ tracks all writes to SSDs and can report the percent of the total write endurance limit that has
been used. This allows any SSD approaching the write endurance limit to be proactively replaced before
they are automatically spared out. An SSD has reached the maximum usage limit once it exceeds its write
endurance limit. Following the product warranty period, SSDs that have exceeded the maximum usage
limit will not be repaired or replaced under HP support contracts.

*Storage Centric Configuration
The Storage Centric rack versions of HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 and 7400 are for
CTO (factory Configure-To-Order) only. With a Storage Centric configuration, the
storage system gets placed in the center of the rack so that future expansion of
that storage system becomes easier.
In Storage Centric configurations, non-3PAR components, with the exception of
certain StoreFabric Storage Networking switches, if added to the same order, get
placed in a separate rack.
The following diagrams show a HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 4-node Storage System in Storage Centric and non-Storage Centric

Configuration Information
HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 Upgrade Controller Node Pair
Use the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 Upgrade Node Pair to convert an existing previously installed HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 2-node
Storage Base into a 4-node configuration.
HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 Upgrade Node Pair
QR484A
Used to upgrade the QR483A HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 2-node Storage Base to a
4-node configuration.
One (1) pair of controller nodes beyond the base configuration is supported on
the 3PAR StoreServ 7400.
The 3PAR StoreServ 7400 Upgrade Node Pair includes (2) controller nodes, 32 GB
of cache, (24) small form factor drive bays, (4) built-in 8 Gb/sec FC ports, (4) 8Gb
shortwave FC SFP, (2) PCIe adapter slots for host adapter cards - one slot per
node, (4) 2m SAS cables, (4) node link cables, (1) mounting rail kit, and power
cords
The upgrade node pair includes built-in Gigabit Ethernet ports for management
and Remote Copy over IP.
Step 2 - Choose Host Adapter
Host adapters can be ordered separately to be installed in the field or they can be factory configured into controller nodes. Host adapter
cards provide the array with additional FC ports or with 10Gb/sec iSCSI/FCoE ports. The additional FC ports can be used for connection to
hosts or used to connect to other HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage systems in a Remote Copy relationship. The iSCSI/FCoE ports permit host
connection in iSCSI and FCoE environments.

HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 4-port 8Gb/sec Fibre Channel Adapter
HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 2-port 10Gb/sec iSCSI/FCoE Adapter
Used in the Storage Base products (QR482A, QR483A, and QR485A) and the
Upgrade Node Pair (QR484A).
Because the Storage Base products and the Upgrade Node Pair include built-in FC
ports, the host adapter cards are optional.
QR486A and QR487A include one adapter card each. Adapters must be purchased
in pairs.
The QR486A includes (4) 8 Gb/s shortwave FC SFPs and the QR487A includes (2) 10
Gb/s SFPs.
Each node in a node pair (a node pair is composed of the two controller nodes in a
single 2U enclosure) must have the same number and type of adapters. FC and
iSCSI/FCoE adapters may not be intermixed in a node pair.
The 4 ports of the FC adapter can be individually configured to connect to a host or
to a remote array in an RC configuration.
The two ports of the iSCSI/FCoE adapter can be individually configured by the user
as iSCSI or FCoE.

* Factory default configurations for given quantities of adapters.
NOTE: If the configuration includes Remote Copy over Fibre Channel it is recommended that optional Fiber Channel HBAs are
purchased as the built in ports will not offer sufficient connectivity.
Step 3 - Choose Drive Enclosures
Add drive enclosures to expand the configuration and to add large form factor drives to the configuration. Drive enclosures can be
ordered separately for installation in the field, or they can be factory configured in a rack. Drive enclosures are optional. Because the
Storage Base products and the Upgrade Node Pair include small form factor drive bays, the minimum configuration does not require
any additional drive enclosures. For larger configurations, attach drive enclosures. Each drive enclosure includes 24 drive bays. The HP
3PAR StoreServ 7200 supports up to five (5) added drive enclosures. The HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400 supports up to nine (9) added drive
enclosures per node pair. The two drive enclosure types can be intermixed in a single array.

Drive Enclosures
HP M6710 2.5 inch 2U SAS Drive Enclosure
HP M6720 3.5 inch 4U SAS Drive Enclosure
Each drive enclosure includes 24 drive bays, (2) IO modules, (2) 1m SAS cables,
(1) mounting rail kit, and power cables.
The M6710 2U drive enclosure provides 24 SFF drive bays arranged in a single
row.
The M6720 4U drive enclosure provides 24 LFF drive bays, arranged in four (4)
columns of six (6) slots each.
Minimum of zero (0) drive enclosures, maximum of five (5) attached to QR482A.
Minimum of zero (0) drive enclosures, maximum of nine (9) attached to QR483A.
Minimum of zero (0) drive enclosures, maximum of (18) attached to QR485A.
Drive enclosures are connected in daisy chains from the SAS ports of the
controller nodes.
The best practice is to balance the drive enclosures across the SAS ports,

QR490A
QR491A
Page 14
QuickSpecs
HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage
Configuration Information
remembering that the controller node enclosures include (24) drives attached to
the SAS port labeled DP-1.
The best practice when including LFF and SFF drive enclosures in the same array
is to arrange them in the rack so that all of the 2U enclosures that belong to one
node pair are together and all of the 4U enclosures for that node pair are
together. When connecting the backend SAS cables, intermix the M6710 and
M6720 enclosures on each SAS port.
With a four node configuration, the best practice is to attach the same number of
drive enclosures to each node pair.
To achieve highest availability in multi-enclosure configurations, configure a
minimum of two (2) enclosures per node pair for RAID 1, a minimum of four (4)
enclosures per node pair if RAID 5 is included, and a minimum of three (3)
enclosures per node pair if RAID 6 is included. Include enclosures containing node
pairs in the count with the M6710 enclosures.
Drive bays that are not filled with a drive must be covered with a drive blank to
preserve proper air flow.
If future capacity upgrades are expected, include enough Drive Enclosures so
that there are some empty bays in each enclosure after all drives are added.
Step 4 - Choose Drives
Drives are orderable at the time the array is purchased, or can be added in the future when additional capacity is required. Unlike other
HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage systems where drives are sold in magazines of four, HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 drives are sold as single
drives. Note that these drives are only compatible with the M6710 and M6720 drive enclosures.

For each drive type installed in the array, the minimum recommended initial
quantity is
SSD and SAS performance HDDs - eight (8) drives* per node pair
Nearline HDDs - twelve (12) drives per node pair
Minimum upgrade quantity is 4 drives per node pair or 2 drives per enclosure,
whichever is larger. Best practice is to run Autonomic Rebalance (also known as
tunesys) after adding the drives.
RAID 6 is strongly recommended for Nearline drives.
All node enclosures must contain either zero (0) or an even number of drives. All
drive enclosures must contain an even number of drives, with a minimum of two.
Minimum raw capacity is 1.2TB per node pair.
A best practice is to add equal numbers of drives to all enclosures compatible
with the drive type being added.
With a four node configuration, the best practice is to attach the same number
and type of drives to each node pair.
Small Form Factor (SFF)-specific configuration practices
SFF drives may be loaded into the Storage Base enclosures, the Upgrade
Node Pair enclosure and the M6710 drive enclosure.
SFF drives must be loaded in pairs of identical drives, beginning with the
leftmost slot, slot 0, and filling to the right, leaving no empty slots
between drives.
Large Form Factor (LFF)-specific configuration practices
LFF drives may be loaded into the M6720 drive enclosure.
LFF drives must be loaded in pairs of identical drives starting at the
bottom of a column, leaving no empty slots between drives in the column.
Columns of drives in the M6720 enclosure must be of the same type (SSD
or NL) and, for HDDs, the same rotational speed. Drives of different types
may not be mixed in a single column. It is permitted to have empty
columns between columns containing drives. Different columns do not
have to contain the same number of drives.
An all LFF drive configuration is permitted, leaving the Storage Base
Enclosure empty.
SSD specific configuration practices
SSD-only configurations are permitted.
Maximum of 120 SSDs per node pair.
The SFF and LFF SSDs allow the user to create SSD volumes that stripe
across SFF and LFF enclosures.
* 8 drives support RAID 1 and RAID 5. For RAID 6 choose 12 drives.

All drives within a 3PAR StoreServ encrypted array must be self-encrypted
devices. There cannot be a mixture of encrypted drives and non-encrypted drives
within the same array.
Self-encrypted drives are only supported on new 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage
systems. Encryption is not supported on existing 3PAR systems that are already
deployed in customer use.
* FIPS 140-2 Validated Self-Encrypting Drives (SEDs) have been certified by the
U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and Canadian
Communications Security Establishment (CSE) as meeting the Level 2 security
requirements for cryptographic modules as defined in the Federal Information
Processing Standards (FIPS) 140-2 Publication *
Strengthen the DAR solution in the future with software upgrade to FIPS
validated local key manager, or optional FIPS validated external key manager.
A data encryption license (LTU) is required to enable encryption on the array. One
encryption license is required for each encrypted array.
Once encryption is enabled on the HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage, it cannot be
disabled.
The local key manager is included in the HP 3PAR OS. There is not a separately
orderable part number for the local key manager.
Step 5 - Choose Service Processor Implementation
The HP 3PAR Service Processor remotely monitors the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 and enables remote servicing of the array. The key
capabilities of the Service Processor are to:
Enable rapid, proactive responses to issues
Provide a secure communication channel between the customer's data center and HP 3PAR Central for:
Remote Online Software Upgrade --Upgrade software with no application disruption
o Remote Diagnostics --Maintain key diagnostic information centrally on a historical basis
Remote Serviceability--Provide fast predictive response and remediation
Each HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 requires its own Service Processor. The Service Processor functions as the communication interface
between a customer's IP network and HP 3PAR Central by managing all service-related communications. The Service Processor
leverages the industry-standard HTTP over Secure Sockets Layer (HTTPS) protocol to secure and encrypt data communication.
The Service Processor can be deployed either as a virtual Service Processor (VSP) or a physical Service Processor. A virtual Service
Processor is included free with the base HP 3PAR Operating System. The virtual Service Processor can be installed on a customerprovided VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V system that meets the following specifications:

3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage. The physical Service Processor is fully supported and maintained by HP Services. The physical Service
Processor has serial port connectivity that provides maintenance access for trouble shooting capabilities. If a VMware server is not
available to run the virtual Service Processor, the physical Service Processor is the alternative choice for remote monitoring and
remote service.
HP 3PAR Policy Server
HP 3PAR Policy Server works to implement customer-configurable remote service access policies. Installed on a customer-provided
host, Policy Server provides the customer with ultimate flexibility and control to allow or deny outbound communication or remote
service connections to and from an HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage system. Policy Server also serves as the centralized point for collecting
and storing audit logs of all diagnostic data transfers and authorized remote service connections to and from all configured HP 3PAR
Storage systems. HP 3PAR Policy Server provides the

Two types of software licensing methods are employed with the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000. Some software titles are licensed per
system; other titles are licensed by drive. With system-based licensing one license covers the whole array, independent of
configuration or capacity. Drive-based licensing, in contrast, is licensed per installed drive. A software title with drive-based licensing
includes two Licenses to Use (LTU), a Base LTU that enables the software feature for the system and a Drive LTU that licenses the use
of one drive. For each software title, purchase one Base LTU per title per array, and one Drive LTU, up to a cap, for every drive, that is
installed in the array, independent of drive type. For the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7200 the Drive LTUs cap at 48. For the HP 3PAR StoreServ
7400 the Drive LTUs cap at 168. After reaching the cap, you do not need to purchase any more Drive LTUs for that title.

between sites. This dual integration enables the cluster service to verify the status of
the storage as well as the server cluster; thus allowing the correct failover and failback
decisions to be made which minimize downtime, and accelerates recovery without
human intervention. Thus the Cluster Extension Software can help customers achieve
'zero' RPO and RTO in minutes or seconds. For more information, including how Cluster

In addition HP supports the MPX200.
HP MPX200 Multi-protocol and Heterogeneous Data Migration
The HP MPX200 Multiprotocol Router provides support for HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 and 10000 as well as 3PAR F/T, including 1GbE
iSCSI and 10GbE iSCSI and FCoE target support. MPX200 iSCSI provides an alternative option for HP 3PAR storage systems if you don't
want to dedicate native iSCSI ports on your array. The MPX200 also facilitates the sharing of iSCSI/FCoE connectivity simultaneously
for HP 3PAR storage systems from the same MPX200. For Data Migration the MPX200 provides high performance migration from
P6000/EVA to HP 3PAR storage systems and simplifies Data Migration from third party storage such as IBM and EMC to HP 3PAR.The
MPX200 is an ideal solution enabler for HP 3PAR customers. http://www.hp.com/go/mpx200

Standard Features
Operating System
Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012 R2, Standard Edition
Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 (WSS2012 R2) includes a robust range of file serving and storage
capabilities. It addresses heterogeneous file workload environments and enables more efficient
storage utilization. It allows for a flexible mix of configurations and includes advanced data
management tools. WSS2012 leverages your Windows Server management skill sets and tools
including Active Directory, PowerShell and System Center.
SMB 3.0: Leverage high performance continually available file shares to deliver feature-rich storage
for continuously available file services, business-critical applications and virtual servers using
advanced new functionality.
New VHDX Standard: Deploy larger capacity virtual storage that can grow to 16 terabytes, is more
resilient against corruption, and provides more efficient usage of new 4 KB sector hard disks with
the new VHDX virtual storage standard.
Live Storage Migration: Maintain maximized service-level availability even while moving virtual
machine storage between host servers independent of the actual virtual machine.
SMB Multi-channel: Enable aggregation of network bandwidth and network fault tolerance when
multiple paths are available between SMB clients and file servers.
NFS v4.1: For Windows Storage Server 2012 R2, Server for NFS has been updated to support
continuous availability. These improvements make it possible to reliably store and run VMware ESX
on a virtual machine that is running Windows Server 2012 by using the NFS protocol to share files.
Additional improvements in failover clustering take advantage of better resilience to hardware and
software outages that may afflict individual cluster nodes. At the same time, failover clustering
isolates VMware ESX hypervisor hosts from intermittent glitches during failovers.
Data Deduplication: Data deduplication enables Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 to store more
data in less physical space and achieve storage efficiency that is significantly higher than was
possible in previous releases of Windows Storage Server that used Single Instance Storage (SIS) or
NTFS file system compression. Data deduplication uses variable size chunking and compression,
which deliver optimization ratios of 2:1 for general file servers and up to 20:1 for virtualization data.
Evaluate your savings with the Deduplication Evaluation Tool.
Volume Shadow Copy Service: Creates point-in-time copies (snapshots) of files and folders at
predetermined time intervals that can then be accessed from client computers.
VSS for Remote SMB File Shares: Leverage proven Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) to offload
snapshot and backup operations to remote storage from VSS hardware providers within Hyper-V
virtual machines.
Hosted Branch Cache: Using client/server architecture, Windows 7 and above client computers can
cache content on the local network via the Hosted Cache running on the 3PAR StoreServ File
Controller. Other clients who need the same content retrieve it directly from the Hosted Cache.
DFS Namespaces: Enables you to group shared folders that are located on different servers into one
or more logically structured namespaces. Each namespace appears to users as a single shared
folder with a series of subfolders. However, the underlying structure of the namespace can consist
of numerous file shares that are located on different servers and in multiple sites.
Distributed File System Replication (DFS-R): Enables you to efficiently replicate folders (including
those referred to by a DFS namespace path) across multiple servers and sites. DFS Replication uses
a compression algorithm known as remote differential compression (RDC). RDC detects changes to
the data in a file, and it enables DFS Replication to replicate only the changed file blocks instead of
the entire file.
Work Folders: With Work Folders users can store and access work files on personal computers and
devices, often referred to as bring-your-own device (BYOD), in addition to corporate PCs. Users gain
a convenient location to store work files, and they can access them from anywhere. Organizations
maintain control over corporate data by storing the files on centrally managed file servers, and

Standard Features
optionally specifying user device policies such as encryption and lock-screen passwords. Work
Folders can be deployed with existing deployments of Folder Redirection, Offline Files, and home
folders. Work Folders stores user files in a folder on the server called a sync share. You can specify a
folder that already contains user data, which enables you to adopt Work Folders without migrating
servers and data or immediately phasing out your existing solution.
File Server Resource Manager (FSRM): File Server Resource Manager is a set of features that allow
you to manage and classify data that is stored on file servers. File Server Resource Manager
includes the following features:
Storage reports: Storage reports are used to help you identify trends in disk usage and how
your data is classified. You can also monitor a selected group of users for attempts to save
unauthorized files.
File Classification Infrastructure: File Classification Infrastructure provides insight into your
data by automating classification processes so that you can manage your data more
effectively. You can classify files and apply policies based on this classification. Example
policies include dynamic access control for restricting access to files, file encryption, and file
expiration. Files can be classified automatically by using file classification rules or manually
by modifying the properties of a selected file or folder.
File Management Tasks: File Management Tasks enables you to apply a conditional policy or
action to files based on their classification. The conditions of a file management task include
the file location, the classification properties, the date the file was created, the last modified
date of the file, or the last time the file was accessed. The actions that a file management
task can take include the ability to expire files, encrypt files, or run a custom command.
Quota management: Quotas allow you to limit the space that is allowed for a volume or
folder, and they can be automatically applied to new folders that are created on a volume.
You can also define quota templates that can be applied to new volumes or folders.
File screening management: File screens help you control the types of files that user can
store on a file server. You can limit the extension that can be stored on your shared files. For
example, you can create a file screen that does not allow files with an MP3 extension to be
stored in personal shared folders on a file server.
Initial Configuration Tasks Wizard: Simplifies and accelerates new device deployment by presenting
basic system settings on your first boot.

NOTE: Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2 are built on the same code base.
Applications certified for Windows Server are expected to have the same application compatibility profile
on Windows Storage Server. Windows Storage Server 2012 R2 and Windows Server 2012 R2 have the
same application frameworks, services and plumbing to support running the full breadth of Windowcompatible applications. Applications that rely upon certain roles that are removed from Windows Storage
Server 2012 R2, such as fax server, active directory domain controller or terminal services will not be able
to leverage those roles. Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) ultimately decide what versions and
editions of Windows are supported by their products and users should review ISV compatibility and
support information before purchasing. HP StoreEasy customers should review the End User License
Agreement (EULA) to see the types of applications that are permitted for installation. All versions of
Windows Storage Server can join Active Directory domains, but cannot be a domain controller.
