A summary of new

HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Server Image Copy performs a complete replication from one server to another. The software is designed to replicate your entire server state - data, operating system, applications, and any drivers, patches, or hot fixes you have applied. The significance of this product is to eliminate the guesswork when you migrate data from older servers. For example, assume you have an important server that was built 5 years ago. No documenation exists on how it was configured and the person that built the server has left the company. How do you migrate it to newer faster hardware or into a virtual server? Server Image Copy takes the guesswork out of the migration and copies the entire server state. When the new server is booted, Server Image Copy is intelligent enough to apply the appropriate information, ignoring items like the old hardware drivers that resided on the old server and are not required on the new server. This product is available for purchase. Server Image Copy does not require the Storage Mirroring base product to function. All functionality described above is self-contained in this product.

HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Virtual Recovery Assistant (VRA) HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring VRA is an option for Storage Mirroring. VRA is an excellent tool for consolidating data from physical servers onto virtual servers. The VRA software can automatically migrate the OS, the applications, and the data from a physical machine to a virtual machine nondisruptively, real-time, and still provides failover while the migration occurs. This product is a no-charge option and requires VMware ESX to be installed on the target server while the source servers can be any Windows 2000 or Windows 2003 physical servers or other virtualization platforms including Microsoft Virtual Server, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Citrix's XenServer. Additionally, you must be running the Storage Mirroring base product to leverage VRA.

HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Archiving Option HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Archiving Option is a new product designed to free up capacity on your target server. As data ages and prehaps becomes less valuable, you have the option to remove the original files from the source server and replace them with a pointer to the data on the target server. This option can reduce capacity on the source server's disk for data that is typically non-changing. This product is available for purchase. The Archiving Option requires the Windows version of Storage Mirroring to be running on each server that plans to use the archiving function.
