How is your enterprise responding to the digital transformation? Are your data centers under pressure to deliver greater performance, agility and operational efficiency to address data growth and dynamic business demands? The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator modernizes the storage network enabling businesses to increase productivity, scale and improve the efficiency of their storage investments. SAN configurations are often tedious and prone to human-errors and frequently in multi-protocol environments. Delivering automation, orchestration and fabric services empowers administrators to provision storage error-free and arrange fabric services for increasing fabric resiliency. HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator delivers protocol agnostic, fabric configuration validation with Single Point of Connectivity Knowledge (SPOCK), assessing the health of physical ports with self-healing, fabric monitoring, while performing end-to-end diagnostics, using predefined templates to reduce configuration errors.




Orchestrate Fabric Services across Multi-protocols

  • The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator arranges and monitors end-to-end multi-protocol fabrics with HPE Storage products to increase fabric up time, resiliency and predictability.
  • Predefined and custom templates enable fabric configuration consistency and repeatability.
  • Quickly generate templates that are pre-configured and/or customized, which can be applied to managed elements on specific devices thereby reducing human-errors while facilitating sharing of best practices.
  • Pre-defined templates also available for HPE Complete partner products to assist in partner product environment configuration.

SAN Pre-deployment Verification with HPE SPOCK Assurance

  • The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator validates the integrity, interoperability, and compliance of Hewlett Packard Enterprise storage, servers and network fabric infrastructures before or during deployment.
  • Keep the SAN and fabric infrastructure in ideal health by making informed decisions with better supportability and predictability.
  • Assess, report and remedy for improved fabric health.


Visualize Managed Elements of the Fabric End-to-end

  • The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator allows the administrator to understand what devices are connected end-to-end and get fabric visibility while launching a sequence of steps to create the topology view of the managed elements.
  • Discover managed elements including: HPE Storage, HPE Ethernet and Fibre Channel switches (B-series, C-series, M-series), HPE Complete partner products, adapters (HBAs, NICs, CNAs), cables and optical transceivers. You can refer to the following URL:   for a complete list of compatible products.

·      Monitoring of device health and link status of Fibre Channel and Ethernet adapters installed in HPE servers running iLO5.

End-to-end Monitoring with Self-healing Capabilities

  • The HPE Smart Fabric Orchestrator monitors activities and generates events for action, auditing and reporting.
  • Administrators can monitor various parameters end-to-end to make informed decisions based on alerts with other fabric services to remedy a situation. Delivering an easy way for administrators to be altered about storage networking issues.
  • Builds on the basic diagnostic ready fabric capabilities with advanced diagnostic assessment to monitor and quickly identify states of physical ports for root cause analysis, failure impact assessment and self-healing for improved performance
