Enhance efficiency andreduce cost
In today’s competitive business environment you need toaccelerate business growth while keeping costs undercontrol and minimizing risk. Your IT investments mustcontribute to your overall success. HP StorageWorks XPThin Provisioning Software allows you to confidentlyaccelerate application deployment, yet maintain controlof your storage costs.HP StorageWorks XP Thin Provisioning Softwarereduces acquisition and management costs, acceleratesapplication deployment and reduces the environmentalimpact of your HP StorageWorks XP24000 Disk Array. With traditional storage provisioning you painstakinglyassign LUNs to your applications. To make sure thatyou do not have to re-provision in the future as yourapplications’ storage needs grow, you assign excesscapacity to the applications so that there is room forgrowth. But with HP XP Thin Provisioning Software yousupply disk storage capacity to your applications froma pool of virtualized storage. The virtual capacity ispresented as if it were actual physical capacity. Youcan assign the full anticipated future capacity to eachapplication from virtual disk storage, even though theactual physical capacity is much less than the amountyou have allocated. Thus HP XP Thin ProvisioningSoftware allows you to reduce the amount of physicaldisk capacity initially installed. Then, as disk spaceutilization increases over time, you can purchase morephysical disk capacity when it is needed and install itwithout affecting your applications.HP XP Thin Provisioning Software not only reduces yourinitial storage acquisition costs, it also reduces your totalcost of ownership. By deferring some of your storagepurchases to a later date you can take advantage ofdisk storage price reductions. By reducing strandedstorage, physical storage that is allocated but not yetused, you can reduce the total amount of disk storagerequired over the life of the system.HP XP Thin Provisioning Software simplifies andaccelerates storage provisioning by allowing you tocreate volumes without the need for physical installationand formatting time. HP XP Thin Provisioning Softwarealso reduces ongoing management costs. Because yourapplications only see the virtual capacity that is allocatedto them, there is no need for downtime when you installnew physical disk capacity. And with simplified storageprovisioning, you will be able to manage your storagewith confidence knowing that the risk of human error hasbeen reduced. Accelerate your return on investment, and enhancestorage consolidation by using the virtualized storagepool to deploy more applications and servers perstorage system. Deploy your applications faster becauseHP XP Thin Provisioning Software makes it easier to planand size storage. And because you are more efficiently using yourstorage resources you enjoy the green effect of reducedfloor space, reduced power usage, reduced coolingrequirements, and reduced carbon footprint.

Reduce management costs
Dedicate fewer resources and less time to storageprovisioning tasks. HP XP Thin Provisioning Softwareallows you to allocate full storage capacity for yourapplications at the time of installation, even thoughthat allocated capacity exceeds the amount of installedphysical capacity. As the capacity needs of yourapplications grow, add more physical disk capacitywithout impacting your hosts or applications. Allocateonce, grow as needed.
