node, power, network, or site failure.
Thin Provisioning reduces costs by increasing storage efficiency
Thin Provisioning allocates space only as data is actually written without requiring pre-allocation of storage. This raises the
overall utilization and efficiency of the HP P4000 G2 SAN, reduces costs and ultimately increases the ROI.
Application Integrated Snapshots simplify data protection
Snapshots create thinly provisioned, instant point-in-time copies of data on a per-volume basis. Administrators access
snapshots to recover individual files from the volume, or rollback an entire volume. Built-in application integration provides
automated quiescing for Microsoft VSS applications.
Remote Copy reduces costs for disaster recovery
Remote Copy replicates snapshots between P4000 G2 SANs at primary/remote locations. Copies are thinly provisioned with
no space reservation required. Remote Copy enables centralized backup and disaster recovery on a per-volume basis and
leverages application integrated snapshots for faster recovery.
Superior availability and disaster recovery
Data remains available during site failures
HP P4000 G2 SANs stripe and protect multiple copies of data across a cluster of storage nodes, eliminating any single point
of failure in the SAN. Applications have continuous data availability in the event of a disk, controller, storage node, power,
network, or site failure.
Integrated replication for disaster recovery
HP P4000 G2 SANs include integrated replication at no additional cost that simplifies management with simple failover and
Change configurations without incurring downtime
Administrators can add capacity, increase performance, grow and migrate volumes between HP P4000 G2 SAN clusters on
the fly with no application downtime.
Purchase only what you need today
Avoid up-front cost and the potential performance constraints. Purchase only what's needed today, then grow the
performance, capacity, and redundancy of your P4000 G2 SAN online as storage requirements evolve. Buying storage only
when needed simplifies planning and relieves budget pressures.
Scale performance and capacity simultaneously
Each time a storage node is added to the P4000 G2 SAN, the capacity, performance, and redundancy of the entire storage
Avoid disruptive upgrades
Add resources to the P4000 G2 SAN non-disruptively as capacity and performance requirements increase. Applications
remain online during maintenance events (adding nodes, updating software or firmware) for best in class availability.
