The AiO400r and AiO1200r Storage Systems include a Lights-Out 100 (LO100) port with Advanced features. The AiO600 Storage System includes an Integrated Lights-Out 2 (iLO 2) port with Advanced features.

  • Page 51: Arrays

    • Include the appropriate number of physical drives in the arrays to create logical storage elements of desired sizes. Arrays Figure 13. With an array controller installed in the system, the capacity of several physical drives (P1–P3) can be logically combined into one or more logical units (L1) called arrays. When this is done, the read/write heads of all the constituent physical drives are active simultaneously, dramatically reducing the overall time required for data transfer.

  • Page 52: Fault Tolerance

    Fault tolerance Drive failure, although rare, is potentially catastrophic. For example, using simple striping as shown Figure 14, failure of any hard drive leads to failure of all logical drives in the same array, and hence to data loss. To protect against data loss from hard drive failure, storage systems should be configured with fault tolerance.

  • Page 53: Partitions

    gl0045 Figure 15 Two arrays (A1, A2) and five logical drives (L1 through L5) spread over five physical drives NOTE: This type of configuration may not apply to all storage systems and serves only as an example. Through the use of basic disks, primary partitions or extended partitions can be created. Partitions can only encompass one LUN.

  • Page 54: File System Elements

    and recreating the volume, unless it is a simple volume. Simple volumes can be mirrored or converted to spanned volumes. Fault-tolerant disks cannot be extended. Therefore, selection of the volume type is important. The same performance characteristics on numbers of reads and writes apply when using fault-tolerant configurations, as is the case with controller-based RAID.

  • Page 55: Using Storage Elements

    Using storage elements The last step in creating the element is determining its drive letter or mount point and formatting the element. Each element created can exist as a drive letter, assuming one is available and/or as mount points off of an existing folder or drive letter. Either method is supported. However, mount points can not be used for shares that will be shared using Microsoft Network File Services.

The application, application server, and Windows Explorer believe the data is stored on the application server. So, to view the application data, you must navigate to the iSCSI LUN(s) on the application server, not the LUN(s) on your HP All-in-One Storage System, using Windows Explorer.

  • Page 60: Shared Folder Storage Infrastructure

    Figure 17 Shared folder storage infrastructure ASM discovers any top-level and nested shared folders on your HP All-in-One Storage System during setup and afterwards on an ongoing basis. ASM allows you to monitor and manage any top-level shared folders created on your HP All-in-One Storage System using ASM or other applications, such as Windows Explorer or the Shared Folder MMC snap-in.

RAID 1+0 or drive mirroring creates fault tolerance by storing duplicate sets of data on a minimum of four hard drives. There must be an even number of drives for RAID 1+0. RAID 1+0(10) and RAID 1 are the most costly fault tolerance methods because they require 50 percent of the drive capacity to store the redundant data.

  • Page 140: Scheduling Defragmentation

    • Basic disks can contain up to four primary partitions (or three primary partitions and one extended partition). • Format drives with a 16 K allocation size for best support of shadow copies, performance, and defragmentation. • NTFS formatted drives are recommended, because they provide the greatest level of support for shadow copies, encryption, and compression.

  • Page 141: Adding Storage

    When enabling disk quotas, it is possible to set both the disk quota limit and the disk quota warning level. The disk quota limit specifies the amount of disk space a user is allowed to use. The warning level specifies the point at which a user is nearing his or her quota limit. For example, a user's disk quota limit can be set to 50 megabytes (MB), and the disk quota warning level to 45 MB.

  • Page 142: Extending Storage Using Windows Storage Utilities

    Extending storage using Windows Storage Utilities Volume extension grows the storage space of a logical drive. During this process, the administrator adds new storage space to an existing logical drive on the same array, usually after the array has been expanded. An administrator may have gained this new storage space by either expansion or by deleting another logical drive on the same array.

  • Page 143: Volume Shadow Copies

    Volume shadow copies The Volume Shadow Copy Service provides an infrastructure for creating point-in-time snapshots (shadow copies) of volumes. Shadow Copy supports 64 shadow copies per volume. A shadow copy contains previous versions of the files or folders contained on a volume at a specific point in time.

  • Page 144: Allocating Disk Space

    Shadow copies are designed for volumes that store user data such as home directories and My Documents folders that are redirected by using Group Policy or other shared folders in which users store data. Shadow copies work with compressed or encrypted files and retain whatever permissions were set on the files when the shadow copies were taken.

  • Page 145: Identifying The Storage Area

    Identifying the storage area To store the shadow copies of another volume on the same file server, a volume can be dedicated on separate disks. For example, if user files are stored on H:\, another volume such as S:\ can be used to store the shadow copies.

  • Page 146: Mounted Drives

    Mounted drives A mounted drive is a local volume attached to an empty folder (called a mount point) on an NTFS volume. When enabling shadow copies on a volume that contains mounted drives, the mounted drives are not included when shadow copies are taken. In addition, if a mounted drive is shared and shadow copies are enabled on it, users cannot access the shadow copies if they traverse from the host volume (where the mount point is stored) to the mounted drive.

Each of these pseudo-subdirectories is displayed in exactly the same way as a regular subdirectory is displayed.
