Product Information

Full Description


Storage management can be intimidating if you don't have the training or expertise, with things like RAID, LUN creation, and iSCSI requiring a broad knowledgebase. Then you have to figure out the best way to provision disks for the best performance and availability for file share, email, or database storage and logs. Now you've got a headache. HP X1000 Automated Storage Manager Software radically simplifies the creation, migration, growth, and protection of data stores by hiding complexity and presenting shared storage from an application point-of-view. Included with all HP X1000 series Network Storage Systems, the software is designed for those with little or no storage expertise and includes tools to easily migrate and manage data using automated best practice logic. Wizards and tools that require only a few mouse clicks to expertly set up and protect data storage make the move to networked storage a quick and painless experience.

  • Breakthrough Simplicity
  • Do More in Less Time

  • Breakthrough Simplicity
    Requires no special training and makes any IT generalist look like a storage pro-in fact, it's like having a storage expert in the box. Provides management of file shares (NAS), application storage (iSCSI Target), and data protection. Presents shared storage in application-centric terms and uses terms and functions familiar to application administrators. If you've already created file shares using Microsoft's management tools, All-in-One Storage Manager will discover and manage them (including snapshot scheduling).
  • Do More in Less Time
    Configure existing volumes or raw storage for file shares and/or application storage in just a few mouse clicks. Be up and running in minutes instead of hours. Manage capacity, security, quotas, alerts, data protection, replication, and more from one interface. Integration of snapshot, backup, and replication options in setup wizards for file shares and application stores makes configuring data protection a breeze.
  • Powerful Storage Management Tools
    Create SMB/CIFS and/or NFS file shares on an existing logical drive or on raw unpartitioned disks. Either way, disk-based scheduled snapshots are included by default. Tight integration with Microsoft Exchange (2003/2007) and SQL Server (2000/2005/2008) enables optimal storage setup and data migration without needing to know industry-established best practices. Manage and provision iSCSI storage for standards-compliant non-Windows iSCSI initiators such as VMWare and Linux. Capture disk-based application-aware snapshots of data for easy roll-back, backup to disk, tape, or other removable media with Data Protector Express Software integration, and replicate data on a scheduled basis to another system using HP Storage Mirroring Software integration. Be notified automatically of pending problems or actual issues, via email or page. Monitor capacity and set alerts to manage growth.
  • Seamless Software/Services Integration
    Now included with all HP X1000 series Network Storage Systems.

  • Is your stock grey or sourced outside of approved channels?

    Categorically no! All our  stock is ethically sourced within the EU and backed by warranty. Hewlett Packard products sold as new are retail sealed units covered by the full manufacturer warranty. For added peace of mind, we can supply serial numbers up front which you can validate online to confirm warranty cover ahead of purchase.

  • How are your prices so low?

    At King of Servers we conduct regular price checks to maintain an up to date view on our pricing in relation to our online competitors. We aim to ensure our products are always priced as keenly as possible across our entire catalogue.

    Since it’s impossible to keep tabs on everyone, we offer a Price Match Challenge . If you find a better price elsewhere, we'll do our very best to match it.

    We're not as big as some of our competitors so we have to try harder to win your business and this means offering better prices and better service levels. We’re also fortunate to have smaller overheads than some of our larger competitors and this, coupled with our buying power allows us to secure volume related discounts from our established global network of suppliers. These savings are ultimately reflected in the prices of our products.

    Cheaper doesn't always mean better though, read our blog and watch out for the common pitfalls
