Re: Basics of storage systems..

Hi Shankar,

The things you are asking about are specific to terms to HP/HITACHI storage.

If you are new to storage then I would highly recommend attending a course HP or HDS course. However, if you're not new to storage then may be something like the Command View XP user manual might be a good place to start as it covers the basics of operating these HP/HITACHI subsystems.

Also, HP now have a video presentation review of the harware technology in the XP disk arrays (this includes things you as about such as CHIPs and ACPs.... Its iat -


Hope this helps
