I really enjoyed doing the hands on I'll show you today. I used Peer Motion software to do a cluster swap and volume migration. As I was doing this I thought it would be awesome so have a video playing on the volume that was part of the cluster swap or volume migration - so you can see that this happened without impacting the "users" - in this case me.
First a little background on Peer Motion
There's a new white paper about Peer Motion that is almost finished - so instead of me trying to be creative in talking about it, here's an excerpt from the paper:
Peer Motion is HP’s data migration technology which offers HP LeftHand users two simple and flexible methods of moving data volumes within a LeftHand SAN. Those methods are volume migration and cluster swap. Volume Migration and Cluster Swap employ storage federated software, to transparently move application workloads between tiers of data storage and/or storage clusters in a LeftHand environment. Peer Motion on HP LeftHand supports all P4000 storage models - spanning from the P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance (VSA) to the midrange and high performance P4000 storage systems.
In another podcast covering our August 23 storage announcement, this edition covers the new P10000 3PAR Storage System with Beth Joseph. I've known Beth for a while and she's one of our top product managers. We cover a lot of topics in this podcast focusing on what's new with our 3PAR platform. Here's the podcast with Beth:
My last post was an overview of the HP Storage announcement on August 23. Today I have another podcast with Craig Nunes to talk in a bit more detail about Storage Federation and Peer Motion. Here's the podcast:
