ANLX Storage is delivered using distributed redundant Arrays of HP 3PAR StoreServ appliances.
Storage is available from both shared or Private Arrays, dependent upon your data security requirements.
HP 3PAR StoreServ’s mesh active controller architecture and its ALUA support enables ANLX to deliver a “higher” form of HA. Since the HP 3PAR StoreServ does not need ALUA to identify the best or “active” path to the back-end LUNs on a single array as all of its LUNs are “Active” on all of controllers, HP 3PAR StoreServ re-purposes ALUA to deliver a “higher” form of HA.
Two HP 3PAR StoreServ storage arrays that span two locations are presented as a single stretched cluster using its Peer Persistence Software. The HP 3PAR StoreServ arrays use Remote Copy to synchronously replicate data to keep all of the data on the LUNs presented to the VMs .
Since HP 3PAR StoreServ controllers are Active-Active, the cluster at the primary production does not need to dedicate ALUA to doing path management at the primary site. Rather the MSC uses ALUA at the secondary site and marks its path to the HP 3PAR StoreServ array at this location as “Passive.”Contact Us
