Serviceguard Storage Management Suite

People working

Increase availability, strengthen data integrity and improve manageability for HP-UX Oracle Database and Oracle RAC environments with HPE Serviceguard Storage Management Suite (SG SMS).

Find the right HPE Serviceguard Storage Management Suite for you

Your environment enhanced


Enhanced database performance

Achieve close to "raw-volume" Oracle database performance all while you benefit from the manageability of a file system capable of dynamically scaling the database up to 40 terabytes. At the same time, you can reduce your storage costs by transparently relocating data to different classes of storage based on how important the data is and how often it is accessed.

Experience greater control of online storage management

Improve storage utilization, and reduce storage-related downtime by grouping physical disks into Disk Groups with SG SMS. Other features allow you to distribute I/O loads across multiple data paths to improve performance and move unimportant or out-of-date files to less-expensive storage.

Simplify Oracle RAC management

Experience improved manageability with the HPE Serviceguard Cluster File System for RAC—one of the products within SG SMS—as a single storage management solution for both Oracle and application files. Traditionally, Oracle RAC management has entailed dealing with raw volumes, which usually adds complexity. Now, SG SMS provides all the conveniences of file-system manageability with close to raw volume performance.

Improve data integrity and reduce downtime

Preserve data integrity, protect business-critical environments from unexpected hardware and software failures, and enable the application uptime necessary to achieve service-level objectives with HPE Serviceguard, the fundamental component within the product suite. HPE Serviceguard is equally effective in responding to unplanned failure events and maintaining uptime during planned maintenance. You can move your applications among servers, keeping services available during software or hardware updates.

Increase resource utilization

Allow multiple servers, partitions, or virtual machines to be grouped into a cluster to provide highly available application services. In the event of a failover during peak usage times, HPE Serviceguard now integrated into Matrix OE for HP-UX, uses a policy engine that works together to re-allocate resources based on business priorities to facilitate meeting service levels.
