Overview

Autonomic Management

Much of the storage on the market today is management-intensive—resulting in complexity, human error, and an inability to move data without downtime or service level impacts. As part of a dynamic and unpredictable virtualized or cloud environment, these complications start to look more like chaos.


HP Converged Storage makes storage management autonomic—replacing manual tasks with built-in automation and virtualization that responds instantly to demands placed on your array. It’s storage provisioning, tiering and ongoing change management that happens intelligently, at a sub-system level and without administrator intervention. Autonomic management makes storage systems self-configuring, self-optimizing, self-monitoring and self-healing. It’s storage that just works, so you can work on other things.


With autonomic management, you can:

  • Meet service level changes without dropping what you’re doing.
    Policy-driven, autonomic storage tiering balances cost and performance automatically, intelligently and without manual intervention.
  • Make tedious administration tasks a thing of the past.
    Eliminate up to 90% of the time that you currently spend doing tedious, manual storage administration tasks. 1 Eliminate array planning; provision just once for the lifetime of an application; simplify change management; and minimize the potential for human error.
  • Forget about performance and capacity utilization monitoring.
    Autonomic storage reporting tools detect and resolve performance and utilization issues before they become problems.
  • Eliminate failed backups.
    HP Autonomic Restart removes any single point of failure with autonomic error detection and failover.
  • Free stranded capacity to maximize storage hardware investments.
    Thin reclamation identifies free but unused space on an ongoing basis to keep utilization rates high over time without manual intervention.
