The good news is that HP is continuing to invest in EVA P6000 Storage. We’re announcing a series of enhancements designed to help you optimize traditional and virtual workloads with new technology innovations. In a nutshell, these enhancements include:
- New models, EVA P6350 and EVA P6550, with twice the cache
- Increased addressable capacity now over 1PB
- New drive options including support for 200GB and 400GB Small Form Factor (SFF) Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Solid State Disk (SSD)
- New 3TB SAS drive option for increased scalability
- Integration with VMware vSphere Storage APs (VAAI)
- Performance Advisor Software for intuitive, easy-to-use performance monitoring and troubleshooting interface
Late last week - actually was most of the world's weekend - I had a blog post talking about some new P6000 EVA Performance Advisor demo videos. Today, I have the final two videos in the series that I wanted to share with you. Here are the videos:
A few weeks back I had a blog post talking about the P6000 EVA simulator and that it included the new P6000 Performance Advisor (PA) software. I sure hope you checked it out but if you didn't, over the next couple of days I have a few videos that demonstrate PA.
Yesterday I had a post talking about the new version of Command View for the P6000 EVA. Shortly after I sent the article out on Twitter, an EVA customer asked me how can an existing customer get the new version of Command View. I got a URL where you can download Command View v10.0 from the HP Software Depot. I added it to the post yesterday but it was at the bottom and I'm guessing many of you missed it. So here's the link you can download Command View v10.0.
I also was reminded that we have a P6000 EVA simulator. It's basically Command View - and so the simulator is a great way for someone not familiar with the EVA or Command View can get a sense of how it works. So if you want don't have an EVA or don't have Command View v10.0 and want to see how they work, download the simulator. The latest simulator also includes Performance Advisor (PA) - so while the data being used isn't realistic (I think the simulator actually uses data from the performance of your PC hard drive, not simulated data), you can get a sense of what you can do with PA.
Have a great weekend!
