The flexibility of SAS or SAS MDL drives technology, form factors, sizes,speeds, and costs per GB allows a system to easily fit in almost any budget. Large Form Factor configurations can scale up to 72 TB SAS MDL, expandable to 288 TB SASMDL with the addition of a maximum of three MSA 2040 3.5-inch Disk Enclosures.Small Form Factor configurations can scale from 28 TB SAS. With the addition of three D2700JBODs, the MSA 1040 storage can support 118 TB SAS.VdisksThe Vdisk nomenclature is being replaced by Disk Group. In the Linear Storage and in the SMU V2 youwill see reference to Vdisk in the Virtual Storage and the SMU V3 you will see Disk Group. Vdisk andDisk Group are essentially the same. Vdisks have additional RAID types (RAID 0, 3) available only in theCLI.Disk GroupA Disk Group is a collection of disks in a given redundancy mode (RAID 1, 5, 6, 10, 50). It is equivalentto a Vdisk in Linear Storage and utilizes the same proven fault tolerant technology used by LinearStorage. Disk Group RAID level and size can be created based on performance and/or capacityrequirements. With GL200 or newer firmware multiple Disk Groups can be allocated into a StoragePool for use with the Virtual Storage features.8LUNsThe MSA 1040 arrays support 512 volumes and up to 512 snapshots in a system. All of these volumescan be mapped to LUNs. Maximum LUN sizes up to 128 TB, the LUNs size are dependent on the storagearchitecture: Linear vs. Virtualized. Thin Provisioning allows the user to create the LUNs independentof the physical storage.8Storage PoolsThe GL200 firmware or newer introduces Storage Pools – which are comprised of one or more DiskGroups. LUNs are no longer be restricted to a single Vdisk as with Linear Storage. A volume’s data on agiven LUN can now span all disk drives in a pool. When capacity is added to a system, users willbenefit from the performance of all spindles in that pool.Leveraging Storage Pools, the MSA 2040 supports large, flexible Volumes with sizes up to 128TB andfacilitates seamless capacity expansion. As volumes are expanded data automatically reflows tobalance capacity utilization on all drives.88Paid Option.c04227623 — DA – 14884 Worldwide — Version 4 — December 1, 2014Page 7

QuickSpecsHP MSA 1040 StorageFamily InformationRAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 50In addition to the usual RAID levels, the MSA 1040 features several important additional levels. RAID 6is the highest level of RAID protection. It allocates two sets of parity data across drives and allowssimultaneous write operations. It can withstand two simultaneous drive failures without downtime ordata loss. RAID 10 is mirroring and striping without parity. RAID 50 combines the block striping andparity of RAID 5 with the straight block striping of RAID 0, yielding higher performance than RAID 5through the addition of RAID 0, particularly during writes.PerformanceThe preliminary performance figures provided here are for your reference as many variables existbetween array configurations, workloads, hard drive types, vdisk setup parameters and host systemsetup.

QuickSpecsHP MSA 1040 StorageOptional Software remote site.HP Remote Snap functionality is based on existing Snapshot technology offered by HP MSA SAN Arrayproducts. Snapshots are used to track the data to be replicated as well as to determine the differences in dataupdated on the master volume, minimizing the amount of data to be transferred.HP Remote Snap replication technology provides the ability to accomplish key data management andprotection capabilities. First, because Remote Snap uses snapshots as the underlying technology it createsmultiple local recovery points which can be used for such tasks as to complement daily backups; second,replication provides the ability to access data in a remote site which could be used for dispersed operations;and third but definitely not least important replication allows for business continuance in the event of afailure on the primary site.In order to perform a replication, a snapshot of the volume to be replicated is taken, creating a point-in-timeimage of the data. This point-in-time image is then replicated to the destination volume by copying the datarepresented by the snapshot via a transport medium such as TCP/IP (iSCSI) or Fibre Channel. The amount ofdata transferred is minimized though the use of snapshots whenever possible.HP MSA Remote Snap Software LTUHP MSA Remote Snap Software E-LTUTC463ATC463AAE(NOTE: One license per array is required for replication.

Snapshot based replication technology means only changed data will be replicated to alternate site Many to 1 replication (up to 4 nodes) - primary use case is to replicate from "many" branch offices to the homeoffice for the purpose of backing up data from the branches Single controller to single controller replication Advanced scheduler provides several options to IT administrators for business continuance Flexible architecture allows remote replication between MSA 1040 and/or MSA 2040/ P2000 G3 supportedarrays.

Disaster recovery is still the drivingbusiness case behind replication. Remote replication can be implemented from the production site to one or moreremote sites across a campus, across town, across a state or across the country. When a disaster strikes the primarylocation, the applications can be brought up at the remote site and continue processing against the replicated copies.When the primary site is back online, the replication can be reversed and when the data is resynchronized, processingcan be switched back to the primary site and business can continue.
