Overview:Incipient software allows for:
* Non-Disruptive, On-Line Data Migration
* Network Volume Management
* Storage Provisioning
* Copy Services
With Incipient software, data center managers can non-disruptively migrate data located on any iNSP network volume. iNSP software will move the data from its current physical storage location without disrupting production environments.
With iNSP, you can consolidate volume management to a single location in the network, independent of any host and across disparate storage arrays. iNSP allows the configuration of physical storage to be changed without impacting any host or application.
iNSP provides true end-to-end automated storage array provisioning and fabric zoning which lessens the administrative steps required to provision new storage. It provides deep discovery, polices, and automation to simplify the process of provisioning of arrays for heterogeneous storage, and provides a unified point of control. Storage administrators can provision an iNSP network volume to a host once, then grow, transform, migrate and copy volumes without any host configuration.
iNSP creates local point-in-time copies or clones of an iNSP network volume. Copies can be split off and accessed independently for use with virtual machine clones, in business continuance operations, or data distribution for application development or data analysis. Consistency groups assure data integrity for databases or applications that span multiple volumes.
Unlike array-based copy services, iNSP allows data to be copied between arrays from different storage vendors. iNSP is multi-vendor copy capabilities that provide you with the flexibility to use lower cost storage to contain copies for high-end production data.
