Advanced Zoning

Web Tools

EGM

WWN Zoning and Access Control are enforced by hardware that provides the same simple administration previously enforced only with software. Administrators can organize a physical fabric into logical groups and prevent unauthorized access by devices outside the Zone.

Web Tools is an intuitive and easy-to-use graphical interface that enables organizations to monitor and manage SAN fabrics. Tasks can be performed through a Java-capable Web browser from a standard laptop, desktop PC or workstation from any location within the enterprise.

Enhanced Group Management (EGM) is a FOS license that is included with all B-Series switches and enables multi-switch operations. It helps automate operations across multiple switches to save time and streamline repetitive operations, which are typically prone to error. EGM drives consistency across fabrics, while minimizing the risk associated with potential downtime due to configuration mismatches.

EGM provides streamlined troubleshooting for more effective fabric monitoring and diagnosis.

HPE SAN Network Advisor Professional, Professional Plus, and Enterprise enable EGM functionality.

Customers have EGM functionality enabled within the hardware product and need only to make the

decision around which management application is right for them.

In-flight compression optimizes network performance within the data center and over long-distance links. Data is compressed at the source and uncompressed at the destination. Performance varies by data type, but generally achieve 2:1 compression with minimal impact on performance. Compression can be used in conjunction with in-flight encryption.

In-flight encryption minimizes the risk of unauthorized access for traffic within the data center and over long-distance links. It is switch-to-switch encryption, not device or data-at-rest encryption. Data is encrypted at the source and decrypted at the destination. Encryption and decryption are performed in hardware using the AES-GCM-256 algorithm, minimizing any impact on performance. Encryption can be used in conjunction with in-flight compression. This is complementary to data-at-rest encryption provided by the Encryption SAN Switch and the Encryption Blade for B-series SAN Directors.

Adaptive Networking

Adaptive Networking (AN) is an optional family of technologies which allow flexible control of traffic movement within the fabric which deliver application aware management of fabric resources.

Applications may be used with multiple protocols and multiple classes of service. It includes the following features:

Server Application

Optimization

Ingress Rate Limiting:

Allows the ingress bandwidth of a port to be throttled to a rate lower than negotiated with the SAN node. This could be very useful for enterprises offering stepped levels of service and enforcing SLAs.

Quality of Service (QoS):

Enables zones with high, medium, and low priorities within a fabric on a zone by zone basis. This can be very useful for prioritizing array replication over MANs and WANs over less critical traffic.

Traffic Isolation Zones:

Defines paths through a fabric for some or all nodes. Failover allows a non-preferred path to be used if the preferred fails. TIZs use failover by default but it can be disabled if traffic should stop if a preferred path fails. TIZ can be used to manually map out traffic flows within a fabric based on application, priority, and topology.

Server Application Optimization (SAO) improves overall application performance for physical servers and virtual machines. SAO, when deployed with B-Series Fibre Channel HBAs, extends B-Series

Adaptive Networking from the B-series SAN fabric to the server infrastructure. This delivers application-level, fine-grain Quality of Service (QoS) management to the HBAs and related server applications.

Solution Requirements:

SAO requires B-series HBA installed in the server

Advanced Performance Monitor

Extended Fabric

ISL Trunking

NOTE: Adaptive Networking and Server Application Optimization features are included by default in all four switch configurations and do not require a separate license

Fabric Vision offers innovative diagnostic, monitoring and management capabilities to help accelerate new application deployments, address SAN problems before they impact operations and reduce operational costs. It Includes

Monitoring and Alerting Policy Suite: A policy-based monitoring tool with pre-built rules and automation that simplifies fabric-wide threshold configuration and monitoring.

Flow Vision: A comprehensive tool that enables administrators to identify, monitor, and analyze specific application data flows without using taps to ensure optimized performance

Network Advisor that contains all critical SAN information for convenient review and analysis

Fabric Vision will be included by default in all HPE StoreFabric B-series Fibre Channel switches and

Directors bundled with Power Pack+ (with FOS 7.2.x and later*). In all other cases, Fabric Vision can be enabled on HPE StoreFabric B-series Fibre Channel switches and Directors in any one of the following ways

Fabric Watch

Application of the Fabric Vision LTU (FOS 7.2.x and later*)

Application of the Power Pack+ LTU (FOS 7.2.x and later*)

Upgrading existing Switch/Director loaded with Power Pack+ to FOS 7.2.x or later*

Upgrading existing Switch/Director loaded with both Advanced Performance Monitor (APM) and Fabric Watch (FW) licenses to FOS 7.2.x or later *

NOTE: *See HPE SPOCK for Hewlett Packard Enterprise supported versions of FOS 7.2.x

Fabric Watch is an optional license which enables each switch to monitor the SAN for potential faults and automatically alert network managers to problems before they become failures. Fabric Watch tracks a variety of SAN fabric elements, events, and counters. Monitoring fabric-wide events, ports,

SFPs, and environmental parameters permits early fault detection and isolation as well as performance measurement. Each switch in the SAN needs its own Fabric Watch license.

NOTE:

Fabric Watch has been obsoleted in FOS 7.4.0 and later. Users can migrate their Fabric

Watch settings to the Fabric Vison licensed Monitoring and Performance Suite (MAPS) prior to upgrading .

Advanced Performance

Monitor

This optional enabling technology helps administrators monitor and watch specific fabric metrics -- from a SID (Source ID) to a DID (Destination ID) -- so they can fine-tune and scale the fabric more efficiently. Plus, Advanced Performance Monitoring includes the ability for early warning detection of hot spots within the fabric, a powerful tool for maintaining overall balanced performance.

Top Talkers is a component of Advanced Performance Monitoring and tracks the top traffic flows for hosts and targets for a switch port or a switch. Top Talkers can help identify the ports that need certain Quality of Service (QoS) attributes or it can help determine portions of the physical topology that need reconfiguration.

NOTE:

Advanced Performance Monitoring has been obsoleted in FOS 7.4.0 and later. Users can utilize the Fabric Vision licensed Flow Vision features for performance monitoring .

Extended Fabric

HPE StoreFabric SN6500B Fibre Channel Switch

Optional license which extends all of the scalability, reliability, and performance benefits of Fibre

Channel Storage Area Networks (SANs) beyond the native 10 km distance specified by the Fibre

Channel standard.

ISL Trunking

SAN Network Advisor

Professional

For high performance enhanced Trunking, this optional license logically groups up to eight E-ports to provide a high bandwidth trunk between two switches. Each 16Gb switch needs its own license. The switch operating system views the trunk as a single, high bandwidth resource (up to 128Gb) when routing connections between 16Gb switches. Connections are load-balanced across the individual links, which comprise the logical trunk group.

HPE SAN Network Advisor Professional is a server based management application available at nocharge that comes with B-series SAN Switches and includes the following features:

Allows management of two Fabric OS (FOS) fabrics (up to 300 switch ports and 1000 devices)

Performs group switch management beyond the scope of Web Tools

Does not offer management of the SN8000B 8-slot or DC SAN Backbone Directors

SAN Network Advisor

Enterprise and

Professional+

It is targeted for SMB customers that use FOS based SAN fabrics and require a management solution for smaller SANs based fabrics.

SMB customers that initially start off with SAN Network Advisor Professional and have a small SAN environment may over time feel the need for an enterprise-class product (SAN Network Advisor

Professional+ or SAN Network Advisor Enterprise) as their environments start to grow in size and complexity, and as they start to uptake more enterprise-class functionality (such as Fibre Channel

Routing, FCIP, etc.). A non-disruptive upgrade path is available from SAN Network Advisor Professional to SAN Network Advisor Professional+ or SAN Network Advisor Enterprise.

HPE SAN Network Advisor Enterprise and Professional+ are the enterprise-class products that support

FOS products. SAN Network Advisor Enterprise provides complete B-series Directors Management including enterprise-class features/environments such as FICON, Fibre Channel Routing, FCIP, adaptive networking, etc. while SAN Network Advisor Professional+ provides the same feature set except for support for the DC SAN Backbone Director, SN8000B 8-Slot Director, and FICON.

SAN Network Advisor Enterprise delivers unprecedented scalability, up to 100 fabrics and 15,000 switch ports, while SAN Network Advisor Professional+ scales to 36 SAN Fabrics and 2560 switch ports. To accommodate growth, there is an upgrade available to SAN Network Advisor Enterprise from

SAN Network Advisor Professional Plus.

Integrated Routing

HPE Smart SAN for

3PAR

Integrated Routing is an optional license which provides native Fibre Channel Routing (FCR) on a perport basis, rather than limiting routing ports to those on a dedicated routing switch or blade. Just like traditional FCR, Integrated Routing uses EX_Ports to import/export devices between fabrics, enabling selective device sharing while maintaining remote fabric isolation. Integrated Routing provides architecture flexibility to route on a port-by-port basis, enabling increased scalability and fault isolation.

HPE Smart SAN, optional software for HP 3PAR, makes end-to-end SAN configuration and management simple and reduces the probability of errors through automation. It is an application embedded in SAN components (array, hosts and switches) that enables 3PAR arrays to orchestrate configuration, settings and policies across the SAN. Smart SAN is supported with B-series Switches,

HPE StoreFabric Fibre Channel adapters (HBAs) and 3PAR storage. HPE Smart SAN for 3PAR through its Target Driven Peer Zoning (TDPZ) feature enables customers to automate peer zoning, resulting in
