This page provides global statistics and information about the current situation of storage
system, including total used capacity, errors and warnings,
and global storage system information.
This panel enables creating Pool using different RAID configurations. One or multiple pools can
further construct an LUN. Creation, renaming, and increasing the Pool capacity is considered in
: LUN is a key concept in storage system and is considered as the logical unit of user data
storage. LUN panel enables creation, remove, renaming, and increasing LUN capacity. Moreover,
corresponding LUNs to different Storage Groups is also provided in this panel.
Storage Group is of important security mechanisms, restricting unauthorized access to LUNs.
RapidStore is an exclusive product of HPDS Company, enabling the use of SSDs for data tiering
purpose. This product transparently manages and stores data in different SSD and HDD tiers,
increasing the performance of low-capacity transactions up to 10X.
One of noteworthy SAB features is supporting hot spare disk. Hot spare disks can improve the
availability of storage array by orders of magnitude and reduce the probability of system
downtime caused by human errors. The backup disk can be automatically selected or be selected by
the user. Moreover, the hot spare disk can be assigned globally or exclusively to a specific
Pool. The Hotspare panel enables creation, remove, and change of hot spare disk.
This tab is dedicated to the management of hosts which are currently connected to the storage
system. Using this facility, the details of all connected servers can be checked. It also
enables configuration, enabling, and remove of server connection.
This is an important component of SAB UI, providing a high level of security management by
restricting unauthorized access of connected servers to other servers’ information. This tab
provide facilities such as creation, remove, and renaming Access Groups, Adding/removing LUN
to/from Access Group, and adding/removing servers to/from storage system.
SAB UI enables monitoring of entire storage system including hardware components, events, and
performance. Storage system administrator is also enabled to observe the instant input/output
flow and the latest system events:
This part provides a graphical monitoring and verification facility for all hardware
All storage events including warnings, errors and global information are observable
by storage system administrator.
The Monitoring facility of SAB UI is distinguished from its competitors by its
useful reports such as input/output transactions per second by the resolution of
Pool and LUN, bandwidth usage, and input/output request response time by the
resolution of Pool and LUN.
All storage settings are provided to system administrator in this tab:
Network and DNS
Provides all network settings including network configuration, enabling/disabling
network cards, and DNS setting.
Provides all iSCSI and FC (connecting severs to SAB) settings and modification and
removal of CHAP protocol. CHAP protocol assures a secure data transport between
servers and storage system.
User and Role
This part enhances storage security and restricts unauthorized access to storage
system. Creation and management of users and defining/management of access levels
and rules are provided in this part.
Using SMTP protocol, SAB storage system is enabled to send storage events to system
administrators and users. This tab enables configuration, removal, and modification
of SMTP protocol and email recipient.
This tab enables global system management and settings such as time and date
setting, turn off, and reboot.
