Overview

HPE 3PAR StoreServ Simulator v3.2.2 MU4 provides a virtualized HPE 3PAR StoreServ Storage System without the corresponding physical storage hardware requirements. The features normally provided by the hardware components, including the ASIC, HBA and enclosure are emulated in software. The 3PAR Simulator provides the same look, feel and primary interaction capabilities of a physical storage system including support for management, administration and reporting through the HPE 3PAR Management Console, remote CLI, and client software access to the CIM-API and WS-API interfaces.

System Requirements

The 3PAR StoreServ Simulator requires a VMware ESXi 5.x or a VMware Workstation 9 or 10 setup. The simulator configuration requires deploying three VMs; two VMs simulating the cluster nodes, a third VM to simulate the enclosure and private network configuration to enable communication between the three VMs. The minimum system resources required for each VM are:

  • One virtual CPU (single core)
  • Three virtual NICs
  • 2GB RAM
  • 50GB disk space (full or thin-provisioned)

Documentation

Refer to the Release Notes for instructions on installation, configuration, best practices, and troubleshooting.
