HPE XP7 Storage provides top performance, extreme availability, easy consolidation capability and unconditional HPE support and investment protection. Designed for applications requiring 100% data availability, the XP7 combines a seven 9s platform of fully online scalable, fully redundant hardware, with ultra-high-performance, and advanced data replication, disaster recovery and online data migration capabilities. HPE XP7 High Availability Software enables continuous access to XP7 data - even in the case of a complete data center disaster - by enabling an XP7 solution with fourteen 9s availability. The XP7 compression and deduplication capability across all media types (Flash and Disks) more than doubles the effective capacity along with world class performance and makes mission critical flash more affordable. With 14 TB Gen2 Flash Module Device, XP7 has one of the most dense Flash drives in industry. XP7 supports open systems, mainframe, and HPE NonStop all on a single XP7.

What's new

  • XP7 Flash Module Devices(Gen2) with inline hardware compression capability for 1.7 TB, 3.5 TB ,7 TB and 14 TB capacity points.
  • XP7 controller based compression and deduplication across all media types (flash and disks) driving the storage efficiency and consolidation use case.
  • XP7 controllers and processor blades with new processors leading to improved performance.


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

HPE XP7 Storage with multi array virtualization provides 100% data availability and storage uptime, even in the event of a datacenter disaster. Avoid unplanned downtime with disaster resistant XP7 active-active High Availability, while avoiding planned downtime for server or application maintenance.

XP7 provides flexibility and convenience for server or operating system maintenance by insuring 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 the XP7 data.

XP7 Storage enables continuous Disaster Recovery capabilities before, during and after array migrations with XP7 Online Data Migration. Move workloads from legacy XP disk arrays to XP7 with no interruption to applications, no server reboots and no suspension of your XP Disaster Recovery solution.

XP7 increases uptime and availability, reduces operational and data risks and saves data center, administrative, operational and capital costs.

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

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

With a large-scale disaster, you need to not only have high levels of data protection but also business continuance. 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.

XP7 protects data even if power fails when write cache is backed up to a Solid State Drive. RAID 6 14D+2P adds fault tolerance. HPE C-Track proactively monitors and XP7 proactively self-manages to avoid 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.

Reduce the Cost and Complexity of Storage through Efficient Data Management

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

The XP7 Storage has an 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 on the XP7 Storage with thin provisioning and smart tiers that decrease stranded storage, thereby reducing the unused storage that consumes power, requires cooling, and takes up space.

The XP7 Storage uses standard size 19-inch racks with 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch form factor drives to easily fit into existing data center space and improves the capacity/square meter.

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

Accelerate Business Growth with Swift Adaptability

XP7 Flash Modules cater to your extreme performance and low latency needs which are efficiently met with the higher performance lower cost solid-state non-volatile data capacity. Attain both ultra-high performance and sustained extreme low response times for the most demanding application workloads.

With the XP7 you get ultimate performance for your 24x7 demands to deliver your critical data at break-neck speed. The XP7 offers the flexibility you need to meet your performance and latency objectives without sacrificing availability or disaster recovery.

The Flash Module Device compression engine delivers double the flash capacity along with world class performance and makes mission critical flash more affordable. With 14 TB Flash Module Drive, XP7 has one of the most dense Flash drives in industry.

XP7 Smart Tiers and Thin Provisioning provides quick and automated flexibility for changing application needs. You can now configure all the capacity you will need for the future, only buy what you need today and allow the XP7 to automatically monitor and adjust for performance and capacity needs.

The XP7 compression and deduplication across all media types (Flash and Disks) greatly improves the storage efficiency thereby optimizing the cost.
