The power of Command Line Interface (CLI) on HP 3PAR

By Ivan Iannaccone, 3PAR StoreServ Product Management

GUIs are amazing and beautiful, but let’s face it there is nothing geekier than using the command line and nothing more effective than building scripts to automate a repetitive task.

 

HP 3PAR StoreServ offers an extremely powerful and simple Command Line Interface (CLI) with open administration support provided via SNMP, Storage Management Initiative Specification (SMI-S), Web Service API and OpenStack Cinder. It’s time to get our true geek on this 3PAR Thursday!

Last week as part of our HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 announcement, my 3PAR Thursday blog focused on the performance acceleration delivered by HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1. The announcement also talked about the HP 3PAR Flash Advisor toolset that helps HP 3PAR StoreServ Storage customers asses current capacity and performance profiles via built-in the 3PAR OS toolset in order to optimize current and future flash investments. This week, I’m talking about this in a bit more detail and explaining why these capabilities are so important to enable a smooth transition of application and workloads to use flash-based media.

Yesterday we announced many new features that all HP 3PAR StoreServ customers can enable free of charge via a simple online upgrade. In a June post, I talked in great detail about Thin Deduplication (now available free of charge on all 3PAR StoreServ models!). This 3PAR Thursday, I’m focusing on how HP 3PAR OS 3.2.1 enables read and write acceleration via Adaptive Flash Cache and Express Writes. It's all as much fun to talk about as any holiday!

 

 

Built for flash

A common theme emerges from flash startups when discussing other, more established storage platforms:

 

               “Storage Vendor ‘ABC’ is a legacy storage array retro-fitted with flash but not built for it.”

 

Flash_Optimized_Logo_308x220_tcm245_1608576_tcm245_1618609_tcm245-1608576.jpgI agree. But that's because there's no such thing. There's no such thing as "built for flash" or "legacy storage retrofitted for flash." Be it startup or legacy vendor, it makes no difference. The only thing that matters is how the storage solution optimizes and protects I/O. Let me explain.

Imagine this: Manage HP 3PAR StoreServ in your Windows Server environment

It’s reality with HP StoreFront Manager for Microsoft!

Have you ever dreamed of managing your HP 3PAR StoreServ with a single pane-of-glass view of all that is happening in your Microsoft Windows Server environment?

 

If so, HP StoreFront Manager for Microsoft has it all! It provides a comprehensive integration of HP 3PAR StoreServ with Microsoft System Center so that you can see events/alerts, capacity monitoring and detailed VM information all in one place. I'll dive into the topic on my 3PAR Thursday blog here - or you can check out my ShortTake.
