HP MSA 2040 Storage

The new HP MSA 2040, a high-performance storage array designed for entry-level HP customers desiring 8 and/or 16Gb Fibre Channel, 1 and/or 10GbE iSCSI, or 6Gb/12Gb SAS connectivity with 4 host ports per controller. This next generation MSA 2040 Storage array provides an excellent value for customers needing performance balanced with price to support initiatives such as consolidation and virtualization.

The MSA 2040 delivers this performance by offering:

New controller architecture with a new processor
4GB cache per controller
Solid State drives (SSDs)
Up to four (4) host ports per controller
Two new MSA 2040 Controllers:
MSA 2040 SAN Controller
8Gb/16Gb FC connectivity and/or
1GbE/10GbE iSCSI
MSA 2040 SAS Controller
6Gb/12Gb SAS connectivity (NOTE: MSA 2040 SAS controllers require mini-SAS HD cables)

The HP MSA 2040 Storage System brings the performance benefits of SSDs to MSA array family customers. This array has been designed to maximize performance by using high performance drives across all applications sharing the array.
The HP MSA 2040 Storage arrays are positioned to provide an excellent value for customers needing increasing performance to support initiatives such as consolidation and virtualization.

The HP MSA 2040 Storage ships standard with a license for 64 Snapshots and Volume Copy for increased data protection. There is also an optional license for 512 snapshots. The HP MSA 2040 can also replicate data between arrays (P2000 G3 and/or MSA 2040 SAN Model only using FC or iSCSI protocol) with the optional Remote Snap feature.

All MSA 2040 models offer a common set of valuable features:
(NOTE: Customers must upgrade their MSA 2040 controller firmware to GL101 or later for iSCSI functionality)
MSA 2040 supports SSD drives which allow IT managers to boost IOPS performance
Ease of management featuring browser-based out-of-band access. This allows a department or small company to effectively handle growing storage requirements, with the aid of an intuitive GUI to administer the unit with a minimum of complexity. Ideal for local or remote installations.
MSA 2040 comes standard with 64 controller-based snapshots and clone capability. Arrays also support an optional 512 snaps.
Choose either a low-cost single controller array or start with a configured dual controller array model to fit the budget, high availability, and performance needs.
All models feature a wide variety of drives: High-performance and high-speed SSD drives, enterprise-class SAS, and SAS Midline drives.
MSA 2040 can have a maximum number of MSA 2040 LFF drive enclosures (7), a maximum number of D2700 SFF drive enclosures (7), or mix both sizes. The array can grow incrementally from a few drives to 96 LFF or 199 SFF drives.
Vdisks can be spanned across multiple enclosures
RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 50
Maximums vary by RAID levels: 2 drive max for RAID level 1; max of 16 drives for RAID levels 0, 3, 5, 6, and 10; max of 32 drives for RAID level 50
512 LUNs with LUN sizes greater than 40TB depending on the RAID configuration chosen. The maximum LUN size is 64TB
Non-disruptive on-line controller code upgrade (requires dual controllers w/ multi-pathing software)
Upgradable by design. Owners of a P2000 G3 array are able to do data-in-place controller upgrades to the new MSA 2040 array. This unique ability protects the earlier investments in drives, and JBODs.
