Data recovery plugin for HPE 3PAR StoreServe is a specialized software module designed to complement UFS Explorer Technician, making it compatible with the 3PAR storage solution of HPE. The plugin equips this program with unique capabilities tailored for effective processing of HPE 3PAR systems. As a consequence, technical experts can rely on it to examine the contents of virtual volumes and quickly start data retrieval, without the need to analyze all intricacies of the underlying chunklet-based storage structure.

Superior assistance in addressing HPE 3PAR data loss
The plugin serves as an indispensable tool for IT specialists seeking to recover data from HPE 3PAR storage systems. Adapted to the peculiarities of 3PAR architecture, it enables efficient handling of data recovery tasks within such storage environments. Not only it automates the identification of necessary components and assembly of virtual storage pools, but also ensures straightforward access to the available virtual volumes. In view of this, users can extract the needed data without any complications.

Key features

1/6
Immense support of modern storage technologies
Immense support of modern storage technologies Automatic detection of storage pool metadata

The software looks for the metadata associated with storage pools within the HPE 3PAR system and reads out all the details required to reconstruct the accurate configuration. The user can pick the source drive from the list, from which the necessary parameters will be retrieved. Following this, the program allows verifying the pool’s constituents. If some of them are not detected automatically, for example, in case of metadata corruption, there is an option to add them manually.

2/6
Immense support of modern storage technologies
Immense support of modern storage technologies Support for RAID redundancy

The program makes use of redundancy implemented at the level of physical disk chunklets within an HPE 3PAR system. This guarantees that the data will remain intact, even in situations when certain drives fail and can no longer take part in the storage assembly. The redundancy mechanisms specific to the deployed RAID scheme get activated automatically. This applies to volumes built on redundant CPGs, including RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 6. Yet, in case of a non-redundant configuration, all drives must be functional.

Extensive list of supported file systems
Extensive list of supported file systems Direct access to virtual volumes

The information regarding the virtual volumes stored within the SAN is also obtained from the metadata and is utilized to interpret their address space and represent the available file systems. Thereby, the user can choose any volume from the list and immediately check out its content. Thanks to this feature, significantly less time is needed to prepare for actual data recovery, whereas the risk of errors that may occur during manual operations is kept to a minimum.

Extensive list of supported file systems
Extensive list of supported file systems Effortless volume content preview

The plugin comes with an integrated tool for previewing the file systems of chosen volumes. It allows users to explore the content of virtual volumes, assess the data relevance and condition, and make an informed decision regarding subsequent data recovery steps. Notably, this functionality can be accessed without license activation, thus, it is possible to test the plugin and confirm its suitability for the task without making any commitments.

Data recovery from RAID of various complexity
Data recovery from RAID of various complexity Smooth data recovery from HPE 3PAR storage

The selected virtual volumes are promptly mounted within the program's interface. After that, users can navigate them and perform any other manipulations as they would on any traditional storage device. With the aid of a comprehensive toolkit incorporated into the program, the desired data can be restored with minimal effort. And upon completion of the process, the recovered folders and files can be easily exported to a secure external destination.
