The HP 2000sa Modular Smart Array (MSA2000sa) represents the end-to-end Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) model of the MSA2000 family (which includes the MSA2000fc Fibre Channel and MSA2000i iSCSI models), a new generation of HP storage arrays specifically designed for entry-level customers featuring the very latest in functionality and technology at highly affordable price points.

The MSA2000sa is a 2U direct attach, external shared storage solution designed for small to medium size deployments or remote locations. It comes in two models - a basic single controller model for low initial cost with the ability to upgrade later; and a model with dual controllers standard for maximum performance. This solution offers a SAS host interface and accommodates twelve 3.5 inch enterprise class SAS drives and archival-class SATA drives. Additional capacity can easily be added when needed by attaching up to three MSA2000 12 bay drive enclosures. Maximum raw capacity ranges from 5.4TB SAS or 12TB SATA in the base cabinet, to over 21.6TB SAS or 48TB SATA with the addition of the maximum number of drive enclosures. NOTE: there are no additional hidden charges, licenses or fees as you add enclosures or hosts and users.

The MSA2000 offers many distinct features such as the ability to mix SAS and SATA RAID sets (volumes) within the same enclosure greatly increases the flexibility and economy of assigning mission-critical data and archival data to the proper drive type. The wide variety of RAID levels supported assures the user of just the right level of performance and protection demanded by his application. The capability of implementing controller-based snapshots and clones affordably brings enterprise-class functionality into smaller departments, remote locations, and small but growing companies.
