HP XP P9000 Storage Family - Model XP P9500 and HP
XP P9000 Software
Standard Features
Channel Adapter (CHA)
Pairs
Channel Adapters (CHA) pairs provide connections to host or servers that use the XP P9500 for data
storage (either directly connected to the servers or through SAN switches). CHA pairs also provide
connections to External Storage devices and to remote replication devices. CHAs are configured in pairs for
redundancy. A minimum of 1 CHA pair is required. The maximum number of CHA pairs that can be installed
in one DKC rack depends on the number of DKAs installed:
Max 4 CHA pair with 2 DKA pairs installed
Max 5 CHA pair with 1 DKA pair installed
CHA pairs available for use in the XP P9500 include:
Fibre Channel-8 port 2-8 Gbps auto sensing Fibre Channel.
Fibre Channel-16 port 2-8 Gbps auto sensing Fibre Channel.
FCoE-8 port 10 Gbps
FICON-16 port 1-4 Gigabit/sec auto sensing FICON short wave.
FICON-16 port 1-4 Gigabit/sec auto sensing FICON long wave.
FICON-16 port 2-8 Gigabit/sec auto sensing FICON short wave.
FICON-16 port 2-8 Gigabit/sec auto sensing FICON long wave.
The Fibre Channel CHA pair uses SFP (small form factor pluggable) Transceivers on each port of the CHA.
Each port is configurable as short wave or long wave by installing the appropriate transceiver. These CHA
pairs ship with 8-Gbps short wave transceivers installed on every port.
Disk Adapter (DKA) Sets
The Disk Adapter (DKA) performs all data movement between the drives and Cache Memory. The DKA also
provides data protection using RAID 1, RAID 5, and RAID 6.
The XP P9500 must have at least one and up to four DKA pairs installed
Cache Memory
Cache Memory is used to temporarily store data from the host until it is written to drive storage, or to
stage data requested by the host from a drive. The XP P9500 contains global mirrored cache. All write data
is written in cache twice, one time each on two separate SSD backed up Cache Memory Adapters. This
insures that even if one cache board fails that the data is still in the other one until it is safely written a
drive. Read data is not mirrored as a copy of that data remains on the drives, allowing more of the total
cache capacity available for data.
XP P9500 Cache Memory can be configured into partitions allocated to particular host/port combinations
to ensure that those hosts/ports enjoy optimized performance of cache-oriented I/O. These cache
partitions are assigned to specified Array Groups. Up to 32 partitions of at least 4GB can be created in a XP
P9500. Assigning cache in this way provides another method for tuning performance for data access for
performance critical applications.

HP XP P9000 Storage Family - Model XP P9500 and HP
XP P9000 Software
Standard Features
HDD / SSD Drives
The XP P9500 supports a variety of 2.5" small form-factor hard disk drives and solid state drives (SSDs).
The number and type of drives installed in a XP P9500 is flexible. Disk drives must be added in groups of
four. Additional capacity can be installed over time as capacity needs grow. All XP P9500 drives use the
industry standard dual ported 6 Gbps SAS interface. Each drive is connected to both blades of the
redundant DKA pair by separate connections. Spare drives are automatically used in the event of a drive
failure.
SSDs have a limited number of writes that can occur before reaching the SSD's write endurance limit. The
write endurance limit of MLC SSDs is generally lower than the limit of SLC SSDs, however this limit is
generally high enough so wear out will not occur during the expected service life of an XP P9500 under the
great majority of configurations, IO patterns, and workloads. The XP P9500 tracks all writes to MLC SSDs
and can report the percent of the total write limit that has been used. This allows any SSD approaching the
write limit to be proactively replaced before they are automatically spared out.
Flash Modules
The XP P9500 supports Flash Modules, which provide solid-state non-volatile high-performance data
capacity. Flash Module capacity can be configured for use in the array in the same way as any other HDD or
SSD. The number of Flash Modules that can be installed in a XP P9500 is flexible. Flash Modules must be
added in groups of four. Additional capacity can be installed over time as capacity needs grow. Spare Flash
Modules are automatically used in the event of a Flash Module failure.
Up to two 48 slot Flash Module Chassis may be configured to each DKC, and each Flash Module Chassis
takes the place of one 128 slot Drive Chassis. Flash Module Chassis use the industry standard dual ported
6 Gbps SAS interface. Each Flash Module Chassis is connected to both blades of the redundant DKA pair by
separate connections.
Service Processor
The Service Processor (SVP) manages the XP P9500 configuration, gathers statistical information, and is
used for some maintenance activities.
The XP P9500 Storage does not require a functioning SVP in order to make capacity available for reading
and writing. However, as external management functions have become dependent on the availability of
the SVP in the XP P9500, some customers may desire to have fast recovery from an SVP failure by having
a standby SVP. If the primary SVP fails, the hot standby SVP is switched into operation automatically
within approximately six minutes.
The XP P9500 Continuous Track remote support functions require connection to HP Insight Remote
Support via the internet.
Continuous Track Remote The HP Continuous Track (C-Track) remote support solution uses internet connectivity to transmit
heartbeats, system information messages (SIMs), and configuration information to the HP Storage
Support
Technology Centers (STCs) for remote data collection and remote monitoring purposes.
C-Track also enables the STCs to remotely diagnose certain issues that may exist on the XP P9500. With
HP's secure remote device access, HP support personnel have the enhanced ability, in many cases, to
quickly fix a support issue entirely through remotely performed actions.

HP XP P9000 Remote Web Console
Overview
Remote Web Console is shipped free of charge with the array firmware on the SVP. It is accessible by
customers and provides basic single XP P9500 Storage management. It can be easily accessed by the XP
P9000 Command View AE GUI. If Remote Web Console is used as the only array device manager, it is
accessed via a remote IP URL to the SVP. (See user manual for more details). Also note that the SVP
shipped with XP P9500 Storage includes a native CLI/SMI-S provider.
NOTE: There are 2 separate CLI/SMI-S providers shipped with XP P9500 Storage now - SVP CLI/SMI-S
provider and CVAE CLI/SMI-S provider. The SVP CLI/SMI-S provider is included with the SVP. The CVAE
CLI/SMI-S provider is shipped as a part of XP P9500 Storage Controller and is included on a separate CVAE
media kit.
Users of XP P9500 Storage should use the new SVP SMI-S. The SVP SMI-S will continue to be enhanced and
is the recommended provider for the XP P9500. The CVAE SMI-S will also support the XP P9500 Storage
but will primarily be maintained for XP24000 and older arrays. CVAE SMI-S will be maintained with bug
fixes but in general will not be enhanced beyond CVAE 7.0 unless there are specific business cases.
At initial release of the XP P9500 Storage, the CVAE SMI-S provider is slightly more complete at SMI-S 1.4
with support for the Thin Provisioning Profiles while the SVP SMI-S is at 1.3 and does not implement the
Thin Provisioning Profiles, but unless there is something supported by CVAE SMI-S that is needed, the XP
P9500 SMI-S provider should be used.
Models
CVAE SMI-S is what is referred to as a "proxy" SMI-S provider since it resides on a separate server that is
not an integral part of the array. When the Array itself implements the SMI-S such as it is with is on the XP
P9500 SVP, it is referred to as an "embedded" provider. The industry trend is toward embedded providers.
In general they should provide better overall response times and do not suffer as much from
synchronization issues as proxy providers. For example the CVAE SMI-S data, comes out of the CVAE
database which as we know can have synchronization lags with the array.
No product or license is required to be ordered, it comes free with the XP P9500 firmware on the SVP.
Licensing
No license key required, product is pre-enabled and comes free with every XP P9500 Storage.

HP XP P9000 Thin Provisioning Software allows you to supply storage capacity to your applications from a
pool of virtualized storage. By enabling you to allocate your anticipated future storage capacity needs
from virtual storage, HP XP P9000 Thin Provisioning Software reduces the amount of physical drive
capacity initially required. As utilization of physical drive space increases over time, you can purchase more
drive capacity as it is needed, and install it without affecting your applications. By removing the guessing
from capacity planning, HP XP P9000 Thin Provisioning reduces the cost of volume management.

HP XP P9000 External Storage Software
Overview
HP XP P9000 External Storage allows you to host XP P9500 Storage LUNs on select external storage
subsystems. XP P9000 External Storage allows you to tier storage capabilities and provision a XP P9500
solution to optimize return on IT investment - letting you focus high-performance/high availability native
XP P9500 Storage capacity against your most mission-critical data while hosting less critical data on cost
optimized external storage subsystems. Data stored on external devices connected behind a XP P9500
appear to a server to be stored inside the XP P9500.
XP P9000 External Storage provides significant consolidation scalability - up to 255 Petabytes (PB) of
external storage can be configured behind a single XP P9500 Storage. Coupled with the significant cost
advantages that external storage systems can provide, you can confidently scale your XP P9500 solution
to simplify configuration complexity and reduce ongoing management cost. XP P9000 External Storage is
compatible with a wide range of XP P9000 software tools, including XP P9000 Business Copy for local
replication, XP P9000 Continuous Access for remote replication, and XP P9000 Auto LUN for performance
optimization.
Models
Note that the XP P9000 External Storage licenses do not include partitioning licenses because partitioning
is included in XP P9000 Array Manager. In addition, XP P9000 External Storage licenses do not need to
include Array Manager licenses because Array Manager is licensed only on the internal capacity of the XP
P9500 Storage. Array Manager to-be-licensed quantity is not affected by presence or absence of
externally attached storage.

HP XP P9000 Resource Partition allows role based access control of XP P9500 resources. It allows storage
administrators to partition XP P9500 resources, at Physical and logical level and to assign these resources
to sub-administrators while retaining overall control. Administrators can partition a XP P9500 Storage at a
physical level (ports, hosts, LDEVs and Parity Groups) and dedicate part of their arrays for specific
requirements. They can also partition at a logical level (Host Groups and LDEVs) and keep Ports, Parity
Groups and External Storage as a shared infrastructure.
HP XP P9000 Resource Partition software is ideal for a multi-tenant environment set up where dedicated
sub-administrators need to manage the IT infrastructure needs of their respective business units. At the
same time, it allows the datacenter administrator retain complete control of XP P9500 Storage resources.
Datacenter administrators can decide to partition XP P9500 Storage resources either at a logical level to
improve storage utilization efficiency or at a physical level to improve quality of service and avoid data and
access breaches across multiple tenants.

HP XP P9000 Performance Control
Overview
Support
HP XP P9000 Performance Control is a web-based performance allocation tool for XP disk arrays. It lets
you align IT priorities with storage performance resources and allows these resources to be intelligently
allocated to hosts. It lets you prioritize critical systems by making sure that they have all the XP disk array
performances they need to meet business objectives. You can also ensure that business
processes (like backups and data warehouse loads) get the array bandwidth they need to complete within
targeted time windows. XP P9000 Performance Control enables sophisticated service provider solutions
based on performance level quality-of-service. Because it ensures that array resources are best used, it
improves ROI of your XP disk array solution.

HP XP P9000 Business Copy Software
Overview
HP XP P9000 Business Copy makes nearly instantaneous copies of data from XP P9500 Storage for
development, testing or backup, without ever interrupting your online production. XP P9000 Business
Copy creates and maintains RAID-protected copy volumes without interrupting access to the source
volumes. Because it makes asynchronous copy volume updates, copies stay up to date with minimal I/O
response time degradations for your primary applications. These copy volumes can at any time be "split"
from their corresponding source volume and accessed by other applications. Therefore, while copy
volumes are being utilized, primary applications can continue to access and update their source volumes
as needed, without taking a performance hit. By creating multiple online copies of critical business data
without disrupting your business, XP P9000 Business Copy lets you get the most from your data.
Snapshot XP P9000 is a feature of Business Copy that also replicates data volumes. However, it is slightly
different in that it makes space-efficient secondary copies that might only be a fraction of the size of the
primary copy. Only data that is about to be overwritten in the primary volume is written to the secondary
volume. This is called Copy-on-Write. As a result, if the volume capacity required for Snapshot XP P9000
can be smaller, then the cost of replication can be lowered. Snapshot is recommended for application
environments where the I/O to the secondary volume is not write-centric or intensive (reads or writes).

Prerequisites

These secondary copies are also known as "virtual volumes", or V-VOL. All V-VOLs reside in a snapshot
pool, or POOL-VOL, which is sized based on the number of V-VOLs and the IO ratio of the primary volumes
associated with these V-VOLs.

HP XP P9000 Database Validator (also known as Data Integrity Check)
Overview
Database Validator provides the XP P9500 Storage with an added level of data protection when deployed
in Oracle database environments. Implementing Oracle's Hardware Assisted Resilient Data (HARD)
framework, it detects and corrects potential data corruption introduced in the data I/O path and helps
customers avoid unplanned downtime. It can be deployed in HP UX/LVM and Sun Solaris/VxVM
environments. It is also supported in MC/ServiceGuard for HP UX environments.
When implemented in a complete Oracle HARD/XP P9500 Storage solution, Database Validator works in
conjunction with Oracle HARD enabled databases to ensure that possible data corruptions emanating from
the connectivity path between the server and the XP P9500 are detected and rejected before they are
committed to storage. If an invalid/corrupt I/O is detected, Database Validator rejects the I/O and reports
the rejection to server and requests I/O retransmission. At the same time, a SIM event message is passed
to c track for remote notification.

HP Continentalclusters
Overview
HP Continentalclusters software provides the highest levels of disaster tolerance by eliminating the
cluster itself as a single point of failure. It uses data replication technologies to provide application
recovery across multiple widely separated HP-UX Serviceguard clusters.
The Continentalclusters product provides the ability to monitor a Serviceguard cluster and recover
mission-critical applications to a remote Serviceguard cluster, should the monitored cluster become
unavailable or if there is a disaster at the cluster site. Continentalclusters allows for a semi-automatic
push button type of recovery. When a cluster failure or a site disaster is detected, Continentalclusters
generates a notification. An operator, upon receipt of a notification, can start the recovery of applications
at a recovery cluster using a single Continentalclusters command that automates the recovery procedure.
Continentalclusters supports mutual recovery across two clusters. In a mutual recovery pair, each cluster
is configured to recover the mission-critical applications running in the other cluster.
Applications can be configured in Continentalclusters for disaster tolerance using HP XP P9500 Storage
and HP XP P9000 Continuous Access data replication technology.

HP DBUtil
Overview
HP DButil is a command-line utility to facilitate application-consistent replication of a Microsoft SQL Server
database. HP DButil commands place the database in a transactionally consistent state and suspend write
operations while HP replication software is used to copy the database. Other HP DButil commands then
resume the database and normal write operations. HP DButil now supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 operating system.
HP DButil can be downloaded at no charge from the following site:

HP Insight Control Storage Module for vCenter
Overview
HP Insight Control Storage Module for vCenter allows customers who are using vCenter to better monitor
and manage the storage associated with VMware virtual machines. HP can be added to vCenter, allowing
vCenter administrators to list LUN/volume connections, determine the storage attributes associated with
virtual machines, and monitor the status and health of the arrays.
Features and Benefits:
1. Monitor the status and health of HP arrays: Administrators managing their virtual machine
environment can get additional information about the health and status of their HP arrays. This
information helps in diagnosing problems, and communicating with storage administrators on the
various storage requirements for the virtualized environment.
2. Manage LUN / volume connections from VMs and ESX servers to the arrays: As administrators
manage virtual machines, it is often very important that they know exactly what storage is
connected to each, and the location and attributes of that storage within the SAN. This allows for
much more intelligent decisions about VM movement and placement, and also an increased
understanding of what kind of storage is being used.
3. Understand which storage features are available: Often when allocating storage for a virtual
machine administrators need to match the characteristics of the VM with the attributes of the
storage. A great example is that a "critical" VM would need highly available storage, whereas a
"temp" VM could use non-protected storage. This feature will tell the administrators what "type" of
storage is available to simplify their communication with the storage administrator (or to easily
make the change themselves in smaller businesses).

Hitachi Virtual Logical Volume Image (VLVI) Manager for Mainframe
Overview
Models
Hitachi VLVI Manager improves data access performance by reducing logical device contention and host
I/O queue times, particularly when several frequently accessed files are located on the same volume. It
enables better utilization of the physical storage capacity of the XP P9500 Storage, and reduces the
amount of administrative effort required to balance I/O workloads. On the XP P9500 Storage, Hitachi VLVI
Manager formats one or more of the LDEVs on a selected volume into free space. That free space on the
resulting volume can either be used to install one or more variable-sized custom volumes, or left as free
space for future use.

HP XP P9000 for FlashCopy Mirroring
Overview
HP XP P9000 for FlashCopy Mirroring Software provides snapshot capability for local copy of mainframe
volumes. It enhances data availability for mainframe data and improves productivity by providing IBM
FlashCopy compatible point-in-time copies within an HP XP P9500 Storage. As soon as a copy is created, it
becomes available for use. The copy can be either virtual or physical. If a virtual copy is specified, it
remains a pointer-based copy that only saves the changes from the original. However, if a physical copy is
specified, a full copy will be completed in the background while both the source and the copy remain
available for access.
For additional availability, FlashCopy can be combined with Business Copy for Mainframe, Continuous
Access Synchronous for Mainframe, Continuous Access Journal for Mainframe, and HP XP P9000 for
Compatible Extended Remote Copy.

HP XP P9000 for Compatible High Perf FICON(R) Connectivity Software
Overview
Models
High Performance FICON for system z or zHPF is an enhancement of the FICON channel architecture; which
also means compatibility with certain standards such as Fibre Channel Physical and Signaling standard
(FC-FS), Fibre Channel Switch Fabric and Switch Control Requirements (FC-SW), and Fibre Channel SingleByte-4 (FC-SB-4) standards. Enhancements have been made to the z/Architecture® and the FICON
interface architecture to deliver improvements for online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads. zHPF
is implemented exclusively in System z10. When High Performance FICON is exploited by the FICON
channel, the z/OS operating system, and the control unit; the FICON channel overhead will be reduced. This
is achieved by simplification of the protocol, and by reducing the number of information units processed,
resulting in more efficient use of the fiber link.

Capacity-licensed XP P9000 Software
Capacity-licensed XP P9000 Software
Many XP P9000 software titles are licensed based on some measure of the storage capacity of the system. This structure allows
customer costs for software to scale with the cost for their hardware solution. In all cases, a 1TB increment is the smallest increment
available. Therefore, for all capacity requirement calculations, capacity figures should be rounded up to the next highest TB. The
capacity-licensed XP P9000 Software products are licensed using a "band" structure.
Band-based Capacity-licensed XP P9000 Software Product Structure
Band-based capacity-licensed XP P9000 Software licenses are ordered in 1TB increments only, with different 1TB license types
corresponding to each of the capacity "band" product numbers of the software product structure:

Customers purchase the Base License and then purchase all capacity licenses under a fixed schedule depending on the license capacity
required. All capacity figures should be rounded up to the nearest TB. Purchase of capacity-based software falls into two categories:
New Software purchase: Software licenses are being purchased along with a new XP P9500 Storage or for a new software
purchase for an existing XP P9500 Storage implementation.
License Capacity upgrade purchase: A customer is adding usable storage capacity to their system or expanding the use of
certain software titles, requiring that they expand the license capacity by purchasing additional LTU products.
NOTE: Because of the band pricing structure, if your configuration is near the top of a band, compare the price of the entry point of the
next higher band to see if it might provide a lower price. For example, consider 30TB of XP P9000 Array Manager. 30TB is at the top of
the first band. If you move up to the next band and buy 31TB instead, you will find that the price for 31TB is actually lower than the
price for 30TB.
For new software
purchase:
Purchase the Base License and then purchase all capacity licenses from the capacity band that matches
the total capacity required.
Example: Customer purchases an 18TB raw capacity XP P9500 Storage. Consider that total usable
capacity, based on the capacity of all configured LDEVs, is 12TB. Customer wants HP XP P9000 Auto LUN.
In this case, customer will need to purchase 12TB of Auto LUN LTUs. To provide for 12TB license capacity
for the software, the customer would order the following:

Capacity-licensed XP P9000 Software
For license capacity
upgrades:
The customer purchases additional license product from the band that matches the sum of the currently
installed capacity plus the desired upgrade capacity.
Example: Customer has a 26.5TB usable capacity system with existing 27TB installed license capacity of
XP P9000 Auto LUN. They then install more drives and configure 4 TB additional usable capacity (bringing
the total usable storage capacity of the array up to 30.5 TB). In this case, the customer requires at least 3.5
TB (30.5 TB - 27 TB) additional license capacity of XP P9000 Auto LUN in order to "cover" the new total
usable capacity of the array. Rounding 3.5 TB up to the nearest TB, they customer needs to purchase 4 TB
license capacity for a total of 31 TB. Because the total capacity is 31 TB, the upgrade capacity is purchased
from the 31 to 50 TB band

Usable Capacity-licensed Software Titles
For usable capacity-licensed titles, customers license the use of the software by purchasing License products that "cover" them for the
amount of total usable storage capacity present on their array (i.e. for the total capacity of all the LDEVs configured in the array). In
other words, usable capacity is based upon the total usable capacity of all created LDEVs
Total Usable Capacity = Allocated LDEVs + Unallocated LDEVs + Reserved Capacity. Note that Usable Capacity for software licenses is
to be calculated in binary (TiB). A factor of 1024 is to be used for converting from raw to usable capacity.
Example: Customer has a XP P9500 Storage with 100TB physical raw capacity. The entire raw capacity has been configured as RAID 1.
Thus, the total effective capacity available to customer is 50TB. Customer configures a number of LDEVs whose total capacity equals
40TB. This 40TB will be considered as the "usable" capacity of the array. All software titles licensed on usable capacity will need to
have 40TB licenses if they need to be used on this array.
Note that if a customer crosses the boundary by creating too many LDEV's, they can restore management to the array by deleting

Regular band SKUs continue to be available for the above products. The products continue to be licensed based on capacity (Usable or
Used as the case may be). Meter-based Term licenses can be used together with the regular band SKUs.
Meter-based Term licenses can be used only for XP P9500 Storage. To use Meter-based Term licenses for any product, it is necessary
to install Base license and 1TB Permanent license of that product first on the array.
Example: A new XP P9500 customer expects their average storage capacity usage to be 100TB, fully Thin Provisioned. Additionally
they want Performance Advisor (100TB), Business Copy (50TB) and Continuous Access Synchronous (40TB). Also, every year, in the
month of December, they expect their storage requirements to go up by 20% and drop down to normal post December. What should
they order?
For steady state condition, customer can order Permanent licenses:
100TB LTU of Array Manager+ThP: 1 x TB524AA, 101 x TB524AE
100TB LTU of Performance Advisor: 1 x TB590AA, 101 x TB590AE
50TB of Business Copy: 1 x TB513AA, 51 x TB513AD
40TB of Continuous Access Synchronous: 1 x TB511AA, 40 x TB511AC
For yearend peak, customer can order Meter-Based Term licenses to cover the month of December:
31*20 = 620TB-Days of Array Manager+ThP: 620 x TB524AM
31*20 = 620TB-Days of Performance Advisor: 620 x TB590AM

Example: An existing XP P9500 customer needs to attach an EVA to their XP P9500 Storage for a special project. The duration of the
project is expected to be 180 days. The total usable capacity of the LUNs hosted on the EVA will be 5TB. What should the customer
order?
As this is a time-based project, Meter-Based Term licenses are recommended. Suggested configuration:
_____1 x TB506AA (External Storage Base license)
_____1 x TB506AB (Ext Storage SW 1TB 0-30TB LTU)
_____720 x TB506AM (Ext Storage 1TB-Day Meter LTU)
_____Out of 5TB total licensing requirement, 1TB is covered with Permanent LTU and 4TB is covered with Meter licenses. 4TB LTU
_____for 180 Days = 720 TB-Days Meter LTU.
Note that to use Meter-based Term licenses, customer needs to have Base license and 1TB Permanent license installed on the array.
For HP XP P9000 External Used capacity is defined as the total capacity of all logical volumes that are physically hosted on/mapped
to an external storage subsystem (e.g. MSA, EVA, and XP Disk Arrays). This amount represents the true
Storage:
usable capacity of these volumes corresponding with the configured LDEV sizes (i.e. it excludes RAID
mirroring overhead).
Example: A customer wishes to deploy a XP P9500 Storage. The customer wishes to use HP XP P9000
External Storage to host a portion of the data on an externally connected EVA storage system. For their
solution, they determine that they will host 140 LUNs of equal LDEV size on the EVA. Each LUN LDEV is
roughly 14.5 GB in size. The customer must purchase license capacity to cover all the LUNs being hosted
on the EVA. In this case, the total used capacity would be calculated as follows:
Used Capacity = logical capacity of all externally hosted volumes = 140 x 14.5 GB = 2,030 GB.
Dividing by 1024 to convert to TB gives 1.98 TB. Rounded to the next highest TB: 2 TB of External
Storage license capacity is required
For Data Retention
Used capacity is defined as the amount of logical storage capacity on the array that is managed by the
Utility, Volume Retention software. Logical storage capacity is defined as the size of the LDEV capacity being managed by the
Manager for Mainframe: software.
Example: Customer wants to use Data Retention Utility to manage a total of 2.5 TB of logical storage
capacity. Rounding up to the nearest TB, the customer would order a total of 3 TB license capacity

Mainframe:
Used capacity is defined as the total capacity of all logical volumes that are Remote Mirroring P-Vols
(source volumes on a primary XP P9500 Storage) or S-Vols (copy volumes on a secondary XP P9500
Storage). This amount represents the true usable capacity of these volumes corresponding with the
configured LDEV sizes (i.e. the amount excludes RAID mirroring overhead).
Example: Based upon their total storage need, a customer requires a primary XP P9500 Storage with 5TB
raw capacity. The customer also requires XP P9000 Continuous Access for the purpose of deploying a
disaster recovery solution. For their solution, they determine that they will mirror 70 LUNs of equal LDEV
size to a secondary XP P9500 Storage in their remote data center. Each LUN LDEV is roughly 14.5 GB in
size. Each source LUN is a P-Vol and each copy LUN is an S-Vol. On both the primary and secondary, the
customer must purchase license capacity to cover all LUNs being managed as XP P9000 Continuous Access
P-Vols plus S-Vols. In this case, the total used capacity would be calculated as follows:
On the Primary array: Used Capacity = P-Vol (source) LUNs = 70 x 14.5-GB = 1,015 GB. Dividing by
1024 to convert to TB gives 0.99 TB. Rounded up to the next highest TB: 1 TB total used capacity
On the Secondary array: Used Capacity = S-Vol (copy) LUNs = 70 x 14.5-GB = 1,015 GB. Dividing by
1024 to convert to TB gives 0.99 TB. Rounded up to the next highest TB: 1 TB total used capacity
Therefore, for the primary and secondary XP P9000s, the customer must purchase at least 1 TB worth of
license capacity on each array.
For HP XP P9000 Business Used capacity is defined as the total capacity of all logical volumes that are either Local Copy P-Vols (BC
Copy and Business Copy source) or traditional S-Vols (BC copy) or POOL-Vols (where Snapshot data is stored). This amount
represents the true usable capacity of these volumes corresponding with the configured LDEV sizes (i.e. it
for Mainframe
excludes RAID mirroring overhead).
Example: Based upon their total storage need, a customer requires a 5 TB raw capacity XP P9500 Storage.
The customer also requires XP P9000 Business Copy for the purpose of online backup and application
testing and all of the copy LUNs will be traditional, full-size volumes. For their solution, they determine
that they will mirror 70 LUNs of equal LDEV size, with one copy each for the first 30 LUNs and two copies
each for the other 40 LUNs. Each LUN LDEV is roughly 14.5 GB in size. Each source LUN is a P-Vol and each
copy LUN is an S-Vol. The customer must purchase license capacity to cover all LUNs being managed as a
XP P9000 Business Copy P-Vol or S-Vol. In this case, the total used capacity would be calculated as
follows:
Used Capacity = P-Vol (source) LUNs + S-Vols (copy) LUNs = 70 x 14.5-GB + 1 x 30 x 14.5-GB + 2 x 40
x 14.5-GB = 1,015 GB + 1,595 GB = 2,610 GB. Dividing by 1024 to convert to TB gives 2.55 TB.
Rounded to the next highest TB: 3 TB used capacity.
For HP XP P9000 Business Copy using Snapshot replication
Used capacity is defined as the total capacity of all logical volumes that are P-Vols (Snapshot source) plus
Pool Volume (where all Copy-on-Write data is stored). This amount represents the true usable capacity of
these volumes corresponding with the configured LDEV sizes (i.e., it excludes RAID mirroring overhead).
The Pool Volume size is estimated by understanding:
1. the size of data that will be changed for each P-Vol per generation of Snapshot V-Vol (X)
2. the number of generations of Snapshots that will be created/retained (Y)
3. the number of P-Vols that will have Snapshots taken (Z)
The Pool volume size = XxYxZ (rounded up to the next TB)

Example: Based on a customer's total storage need, they have 300 P-Vols, each sized at 100GB (30,000GB,
dividing by 1024 to convert to TB gives 29.3 TB, rounded to the next highest TB: 30TB total). The customer
wants to keep 7 generations of Snapshot V-Vols. Finally, it has been estimated that 4.7GB of data will be
updated between each generation. The customer must purchase license capacity to cover all LUNs being
managed as a Snapshot XP P9000 P-Vol or V-Vol. In this case, the total used capacity would be calculated
as follows:
Used Capacity = P-Vol (source) LUNs + Pool volume size = 30TB + (4.7GBx7x300 = 9,870GB, dividing
by 1024 to convert to TB gives 9.64 TB, rounded to the next highest TB: 10TB) for a total licensing
requirement of 40TB
Snapshot requires a V-Vol management area in Shared Memory. The Shared Memory requirement for the
V-Vol management area is the sum of the P-Vol information capacity requirement + the Pool Volume
information capacity requirement. See the Snapshot Users Guide for complete details regarding
configuring Shared Memory for Snapshot.

titles:
HP XP P9000 Tiered Storage Manager: License must be purchased to cover externally attached
storage capacity
All other XP P9500 Storage usable capacity licensed software (Array Manager, Auto LUN,
Performance Advisor, and Command View AE): These titles are licensed only on internal capacity of
XP P9500 Storage and therefore are not affected by the presence or absence of externally attached
storage.
Example: A customer wishes to deploy a XP P9500 Storage solution that will have 5TB of native XP P9500
Storage usable capacity along with an External Storage configuration. The customer intends to host 3TB
of XP P9500 logical capacity on an external EVA storage system. If the customer desires to use XP P9000
Tiered Storage Manager, the customer must purchase license capacity of HP XP P9000 Tiered Storage
Manager software as follows:
License Capacity
= XP P9500 usable storage capacity + External storage logical capacity

= 5TB + 3TB
= 8TB total license capacity required for software licensing purposes

HP XP P9000 Business Copy (optional product)
HP XP P9000 Continuous Access Synchronous (optional product)
HP XP P9000 Continuous Access Journal (optional product)
HP XP P9000 Replication Manager (optional product)
For these titles, license capacity must be purchased based on the 'standard' licensing terms for those
titles. In other words, the standard licensing terms apply equally whether a given volume is being hosted
on native XP P9500 Storage capacity or on the external storage device.
Example: A customer wishes to deploy a XP P9500 Storage. In addition to provisioning XP P9500 'native'
drive capacity to host their main production data, the customer wishes to use HP XP P9000 External
Storage to host a portion of non-production data on an externally connected EVA storage system. In the
final configuration, the customer wishes to create one local copy/mirror of 2.2TB of XP P9500 logical
capacity and host that copy on the EVA storage system using XP P9000 Business Copy. Per standard XP
P9000 Business Copy licensing terms, the customer must purchase license capacity to cover all LUNs being
managed as a XP P9000 Business Copy P-Vol or S-Vol. In this case, the total used capacity would be
calculated as follows:
License Capacity
= Used Capacity = P-Vol (source) LUNs + S-Vols (copy) LUNs
requirement
= 2.2TB (source, hosted on the XP P9500) + 2.2TB (copy, hosted on the EVA)
= 4.4TB. Rounded to the next highest TB: 5 TB used capacity for XP P9000
