Are you searching for cost reductions for your HP XP7 Storage? HP XP7 Thin Provisioning Software reduces your cost, accelerates your return on investment and reduces the environmental impact of your HP XP7 Storage. It allows you to supply disk storage capacity to your applications from a pool of virtualized storage. By enabling you to allocate your anticipated future storage capacity needs from virtual disk storage, HP XP7 Thin Provisioning Software reduces the amount of physical disk capacity initially required. As utilization of disk space increases over time, you can purchase more disk capacity as it is needed and install it without affecting your applications. It reduces both your initial storage acquisition cost, and total cost of ownership, by allowing you to defer some storage purchases to a later date. Configure large logical volumes using a minimum of physical capacity, only paying for and installing storage when it is needed.

Features

Virtualize Your Storage To Reduce Cost and Gain Efficiency

The HP XP7 Thin Provisioning Software reduces the need to over-provision storage for your applications.

XP7 Thin Provisioning Software reduces initial disk acquisition costs compared to capacity-based software requirements.

Defers a portion of your storage purchases to a later date and takes advantage of decreasing disk costs.

Allocates the maximum future capacity for your critical volumes at the time of installation, yet only provides the physical disk capacity that is required today. As the capacity needs of your applications grow, add more physical disk capacity without impacting your hosts or applications.

By reducing allocated but unused storage you can reduce stranded storage and lower the total amount of disk storage required over the life of the system.

Centrally Manage Storage Requirements of Your Data Center

The HP XP7 Thin Provisioning Software reduces the environmental footprint of your storage by using HP XP7 Thin Provisioning Software to reduce disk purchases, thus decreasing floor space, power consumption, and cooling requirements.

Deploy more applications and servers on your storage infrastructure.

Save time planning and sizing storage by using the thin provisioning pool and its easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI).
