HP StoreFront Analytics Pack for VMware vCOPs demo

I'm at VMworld and enjoying being with the great group of people that belong to the VMware community.  I've only been here for a couple of days and there's already been five or six community gathers I've attended - and the passion for what people do, sharing with each other and the fellowship we share is amazing. 

 

So I want to get back to that today so my blog post will be a short one.  Leading up to VMworld, we did some announcements.  One of those was integration we'll have with HP 3PAR StoreServ and vCenter Operations or vCOPs which is call HP StoreFront Analytics Pack for vCOPs.  I have a blog post that included a ChalkTalk where I gave an overview of this. 

 

Here's the demo I have showing the integration with vCOPs. I recommend opening the demo directly on YouTube, change the setting to the HD version, and watch it full screen.

HP Data Protector 8 at HP Discover

The other day I had a "snippet" from our HP Discover Blogger coffee talk with David Scott and Siamak Nazari.  I'll have a few more podcasts from the coffee talk and their will be more details they gave on HP 3PAR - some really interesting stuff that I'm excited to share.   I also had Stephen Spellicy, Director of Product Management for HP Autonomy Enterprise Backup Solutions with us.  At HP Discover, we announced HP Data Protector 8 and Stephen answered a few questions that the bloggers had. 

 

What's new with HP Data Protector 8?

It's a bit of a catch-22 that HP is such a big company. We included the new Data Protector 8 news in our press conference but there was so much other news that I was pretty sure most people didn't really get what we announced.  So before I share with you the audio from the coffee talk where Stephen answered questions from the bloggers, here's the highlights of what's new:

EVA to HP 3PAR StoreServ online import

Online migration overview small.pngOne of the videos I tried to have done before Discover but wasn't able to is a demo of new software capability - EVA to 3PAR Online Import.  Today, I have that video for you.  But let's start with some background information.

 

What is it?

EVA to 3PAR Online Import manages the migration of data from a source EVA storage system to a destination 3PAR storage system. Using EVA to 3PAR Online Import, you can migrate EVA virtual disks and host configuration information to a 3PAR destination storage system without changing host configurations or interrupting data access.

 

EVA to 3PAR Online Import coordinates the movement of data from the source while servicing I/O requests from the hosts. During the data migration, host I/O is serviced from the destination 3PAR storage system. The host/virtual disk presentation implemented on the EVA is maintained on the 3PAR destination.
