The HP Smart SAS Expander Card enhances the Smart Array controller family by allowing support for more then 8 internal hard disk drives on select ProLiant servers when connected to a Smart Array P410 Controller (SA-P410) or Smart Array P410i Controller (SAP410i). The full height, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) expander card supports up to 24 internal drive bays plus an external connection for tape. The HP SAS Expander Card is ideal for ProLiant server customers that want to RAID more than 8 internal hard disk drives or for ProLiant server customers who purchase an additional internal drive cage and want to be able to RAID across all internal drives.
HP's innovative design and integration work of the Smart Array family of products, including the HP SAS Expander Card connected to a SA-P410 or SA-P410i Controller creates customer value that is unmatched in the industry. Use of Smart Array products across multiple applications results in a much lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than any other server storage RAID product. The HP Smart Array family brings an unparalleled return on investment through:
Data compatibility among all models of Smart Array controllers allows simple and easy upgrades any time needs for higher performance, capacity, and availability increase. Even successive generations of Smart Array controllers understand the data format of other Smart Array Controllers.
Consistent configuration and management tools. All Smart Array products utilize a standard set of management and utility software. These tools minimize Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by reducing training requirements and technical expertise necessary to install and maintain the HP server storage.
Universal hard drive form factor is for use across multiple HP servers, disk enclosures and storage systems. With compatibility across many enterprise platforms, you are free to deploy and re-deploy these drives to quickly deliver increased storage capacity, migrate data between systems, and easily manage spare drives.
Pre-Failure warranty means HP Insight Manager not only reports when a drive is going to fail but allows replacement of failing drives prior to actual failure. For complete details, consult the HP Support Center or refer to your HP Server documentation.
Smart Array Advanced Pack (SAAP) delivers value added software features with the Smart Array Controller, which will further enhance performance, reliability, and availability of customer data.
3 Gb/s SAS technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth up to 300 MB/s per physical link and contains full compatibility with 1.5 Gb/s SATA technology. (6 Gb/s SAS and 3 Gb/s SATA capable with future firmware upgrade will allow for data bandwidth up to 600 MB/s per physical link.)
Mix-and-match SAS and SATA hard drives, lets you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your computing environment.
Supports up to 24 internal drive bays plus an external connection for tape (supports 3 drive backplanes with each holding 8 drive bays)
24 internal drive bays plus external port for tape
8 Mini SAS 4i ports
2 Mini SAS 4i ports intended for attachment to the Smart Array controller (e.g. P410 or P410i)
3 Gb/s SAS bandwidth = 2400 MB/s
6 Gb/s SAS bandwidth = 4800 MB/s (available with future firmware upgrade)
6 Mini SAS 4i ports intended for attachment to server drive backplanes
Supports up to 24 drive bays (3 drive backplanes with each holding 8 drive bays)
1 Mini SAS 4x port
Intended for attachment to a SAS tape drive, autoloader, or library
3 Gb/s SAS bandwidth = 1200 MB/s
6 Gb/s SAS bandwidth = 2400 MB/s (available with future firmware upgrade)
HP's High Performance Architecture sets new boundaries of industry performance expectations:
3 Gb/s SAS (300 MB/s bandwidth per physical link) (6 Gb/s SAS capable)
1.5 Gb/s SATA (150 MB/s bandwidth per physical link) (3 Gb/s SATA capable)
Given the increasing need for high performance and rapid capacity expansion, the SAS Expander Card and the SA-P410 or SAP410i Controller offers:
Up to 14TB of total storage with 14 x 1TB 3.5-inch SATA MDL HDD
Up to of 7.2TB total storage with 24 x 300GB 3G SAS 10K SFF DP ENT HDD
The HP SAS Expander Card helps to minimize downtime.
Recovery ROM: This feature protects the user from a firmware image corruption by storing a redundant copy of the firmware image. If the active firmware image becomes corrupt, the controller will use the redundant firmware image and continue operating.
