The topic of today's podcast is one I enjoyed; I've talked about Application Performance eXtender (APEX) software for the P9500 and XP Disk Array in the past. This is an HP-only software product that can manage the QoS of an application (on supported OS's), servers, and now a VMware virtual machine. That means you can manage which VM's get the resources needed to meet your QoS requirements.
There's been a significant amount of either incorrect information or just plain competitor FUD out there since we announced Application Performance eXtender (APEX) on the XP24000 and P9500 disk array. In today's article, I set the record straight.
Today is a big day on ATSB (Around the Storage Block) as we are announcing our 6th generation of the XP Disk Array, the HP StorageWorks P9500 Disk Array. I have a lot to share with you about this exciting new addition to the HP Storage family.
