All inclusive feature set enables enterprise functionality at an affordable price

  • Storage Clustering simplifies scalability
    Storage Clustering allows a customer to consolidate multiple storage nodes into pools of storage. All available capacity and performance is aggregated and available to every volume in the cluster. As storage needs increase the Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 can scale performance and capacity on-line.
  • Network RAID delivers new level of availability
    Network RAID stripes and protects multiple copies of data across a cluster of storage nodes, eliminating any single point of failure in the Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SAN. Applications have continuous data availability in the event of a disk, controller, storage node, power, network, or site failure.
  • Thin Provisioning increases storage efficiency
    Thin Provisioning allocates space only as data is actually written without requiring pre-allocation of storage. This raises the overall utilization and efficiency of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SAN, reduces costs and ultimately increases the ROI.
  • Protection via application integrated snapshots
    Snapshots create thinly provisioned, instant point-in-time copies of data on a per-volume basis. Administrators access snapshots to recover individual files from the volume, or rollback an entire volume. Built-in application integration provides automated quiescing for Microsoft VSS applications.
  • Remote Copy reduces costs for disaster recovery
    Remote Copy replicates snapshots between P4000 G2 SANs at primary/remote locations. Copies are thinly provisioned with no space reservation required. Remote Copy enables centralized backup and disaster recovery on a per-volume basis and leverages application integrated snapshots for faster recovery.


Superior availability and disaster recovery

  • Data remains available during site failures
    Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SANs stripe and protect multiple copies of data across a cluster of storage nodes, eliminating any single point of failure in the SAN. Applications have continuous data availability in the event of a disk, controller, storage node, power, network, or site failure.
  • Integrated replication for disaster recovery
    Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SANs include integrated replication at no additional cost that simplifies management with simple failover and failback.
  • Change configurations without incurring downtime
    Administrators can add capacity, increase performance, grow and migrate volumes between Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SAN clusters on the fly with no application downtime.


Scalable performance

  • Purchase only what you need today
    Avoid up-front cost and the potential performance constraints. Purchase only what’s needed today, then grow the performance, capacity, and redundancy of your v P4000 G2 SAN online as storage requirements evolve. Buying storage only when needed simplifies planning and relieves budget pressures.
  • Scale performance and capacity simultaneously
    Each time a storage node is added to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SAN, the capacity, performance, and redundancy of the entire storage solution increases.
  • Avoid disruptive upgrades
    Add resources to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SAN non-disruptively as capacity and performance requirements increase. Applications remain online during maintenance events (adding nodes, updating software or firmware) for best-in-class availability.


Easy to manage SANs for virtualized environments

  • Centralized Management Console
    Multiple data centers and sites can be managed from an all inclusive “single pane-of-glass.” All of the Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SAN features are managed from the Centralized Management Console (CMC) for simple, easy-to-manage storage.
  • Business continuance with integrated HA and DR
    Every Hewlett Packard Enterprise P4000 G2 SAN includes integrated synchronous and asynchronous replication at no additional cost. This reduces costs and simplifies management of high availability/fault tolerant and disaster recovery storage solutions.
  • Best practice analyzer
    Ensuring best-in-class operation with built-in best-practice analyzer which automatically recommends SAN best practices and how to implement those.
  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise StorageWorks P4000 Unified NAS Gateway
    Boosts the value of P4000 SAN Solutions by adding Windows-powered IP-based gateway services. Fully featured NAS gateway includes support for multiple file protocols (CIFS, NFS, etc.), deduplication, print services and high availability through Microsoft Clustering.
