XP Storage

Do you require 99.99999% uptime on your data center storage infrastructure? The HPE XP7 Storage provides top performance, extreme availability, easy consolidation capability and outstanding Hewlett Packard Enterprise support and investment protection. Designed for applications requiring 100% data availability, the HPE XP7 combines a seven 9’s platform (99.99999%)1 of fully online scalable, redundant hardware, with ultra-high-performance, and advanced data replication, disaster recovery (DR) and online data migration capabilities. The HPE XP7 High Availability Software enables continuous access to HPE XP7 data - even in the case of a complete data center failure, increasing the reliability to fourteen 9s (99.999999999999%)1 availability. Delivers compression and deduplication capability across all media types (flash and disks) more than doubling the effective capacity. A single HPE XP7 concurrently supports open systems, mainframe, and HPE NonStop on one unit.

What's new

  • 960 GB, 1.9 TB, and 3.8 TB 6G SAS SFF solid state disks (SSDs) providing higher density and lower cost/GB.
  • 10 TB SAS 7.2K large form factor (LFF) disk drives providing increased density and lower cost/GB.
  • Increased warranty on 7 TB and 14 TB HPE Flash Module Devices to five years. Passing on the benefit of higher reliability flash technology to customers.


Resilient Constant Data Availability Allows Operations to Continue No Matter What Happens

The HPE XP7 Storage mitigates risk, since all active components are redundant, hot-swappable, and can be upgraded online. Operating your business demands constant uptime; the risk of data loss or downtime must be reduced.

With a large-scale disaster, you need to not only have high levels of data protection but also business continuance. The HPE XP7 Storage supports clustering solutions that allow remote mirroring to be integrated with a high availability server cluster to provide multi-site disaster recovery.

Protects data even if power fails since the write cache is backed up to a SSD. RAID 6 14D+2P adds fault tolerance. HPE C-Track proactively monitors and proactively self-manages to reduce component failures. End-to-end checksum confirms data integrity from host port to disk and back.

Decrease exposure to data loss with the security features in HPE XP7 Software and XP7 FIPS 140-2 encryption readiness. Reduce risk of unauthorized access, prevent unauthorized modification, and protect your information at the end of its lifecycle by completely deleting data on a specified volume.

Avoid Interruption to Applications and Disaster Recovery Solutions While Reducing Risk of Data Loss

HPE XP7 Storage with multi array virtualization provides data availability and storage uptime, even in the event of a data center disaster.

Provides flexibility and convenience for server or operating system maintenance by enabling continued data storage access. By presenting a virtual storage layer to hosts, one side of an application cluster can be taken offline, while the other side continues to access storage data.

Enables continuous Disaster Recovery (DR) capabilities before, during and after array migrations utilizing the HPE XP7 Online Data Migration Software. Move workloads from legacy HPE XP disk arrays with no interruption to; applications, server reboots, or suspension of HPE XP DR tools.

Reduce the Cost and Complexity of Storage through Efficient Data Management

The HPE XP7 Storage increases data center efficiency using storage virtualization with the optional HPE XP7 Thin Provisioning Software. Delivering heterogeneous external storage, local and remote multi-site replication, smart tiered capacity, and compression and deduplication.

Easy to use task based GUI; Common/Consistent Command Line Interface (CLI); simplified serviceability, and simple provisioning with one-click volume creation, dynamic/automatic provisioning and optimization.

Save power and cooling costs with thin provisioning and smart tiers that decrease stranded storage, thereby reducing the unused storage that consumes power, requires cooling, and takes up space.

Simplify operations and reduce costs by consolidating multiple applications onto a single HPE XP7. By having multiple hosts running diverse operating systems, you can better manage the environment and simplify the implementation of backups and disaster recovery solutions.

Accelerate Business Growth with Swift Adaptability

HPE XP7 Storage Flash Module Devices deliver ultra-high performance and sustained extreme low response times for the most demanding application workloads. The Flash Module Device compression engine delivers double the flash capacity making mission critical flash more affordable.

Delivering unprecedented performance for your 24x7 demands to deliver your critical data at break-neck speed. Offers the flexibility you need to meet your performance and latency objectives without sacrificing availability or disaster recovery.

HPE XP7 Smart Tiers and HPE XP7 Thin Provisioning optionally provide automated flexibility for changing application needs. Purchase only the disk capacity actually needed and only when it’s needed, and allow the HPE XP7 Storage platform to automatically monitor and adjust performance and capacity.

    The HPE XP7 Storage seven and fourteen 9’s reliability is determined by the Symbolic Hierarchical Automated reliability and Performance Evaluator (SHARPE) tool that models and predicts overall system availability using continuous time Markov chain (CTMC) methodology. Availability predictions for HPE XP7 was performed by the HPE Solution Design Services Team in Nov 2014. Contact your local HPE Sales Rep if more information is needed.
