HP MSA

HP is a company that focuses on small companies more than any other large manufacturer in its storage market. HP MSA (Modular Smart Array) products designed for SMB companies have always been recognized by companies as highly valued products.

This storage is easily expandable and at the same time much more economical than other competitors. Newly produced MSA models go further and compete with enterprise-level products, and their price has increased accordingly. This type of storage memory is great for organizations that need good performance and cost-effectiveness.

HP MSA OS

In order to be more competitive in the market and to keep its storage systems up to date, HP has updated its operating systems. This update has significantly increased the execution of programs and this feature is available to the customer at no extra cost.

In this update, SSD drives have also been optimized for configuration in hybrid storages, and their performance has been increased to 37,000 IOPS. This storage supports common operating systems such as Windows, Linux and VMware.

What does an operating system upgrade include?

1- Ability to optimize data paths using internal performance display algorithms that use the maximum effectiveness of CPU cache control.

2- Improving server and network peripherals that use express slots.

The HP MSA Storage Device is a newer generation of the P2000 storages. The difference between MSA 2040 and MSA 1040 and P2000 series is that by examining the SFP of this device, it is possible to determine how fast the data transfer was at the output. This device also allows the user to install integrated SFPs, which is a feature of this device. Also, by purchasing this storage device, you can use two controllers at the same time. This means that you can start with just buying one controller and in the future add a second controller to the device.

HP MSA Storage Vdisk

You can easily configure the device controllers without medium using the mini-USB port and serial cable. You can also do the settings using a browser as the IP address of the controller, and the next configuration using the Well Designed Web Interface. To activate various functions on the HP servers, specific HP License types would be required.

With this interface, you can get a very important graphical view of all the hardware, including the case, installed storages, controllers and FC ports. You can also select any component and get more information from it. Using the graphical view of the Web Interface, it shows all the shelves of the connected disks along with their communication cables and allows switching between them and the main unit.

Storage is ready by creating a Vdisk (Virtual Disk), mounting hard drives and selecting a RAID array. If an array fills up on this storage device, you can extend it to spare drives. But you cannot move to a different type of array later, it means it does not allow RAID Migration, and perhaps this is the only drawback of this product.

The Provisioning Wizard, which is used to create virtual disks in the device cache, makes it very easy to create virtual disks. You can select the type of array, assign the drives to the array, the number of volumes it may have, their size, and what FC ports should be considered for host access in this window. In fact, this wizard uses Port Mapping to create Vdisk and Volume.

HP MSA storage Fault Tolerant

The HP MSA 2040, along with the Dual-Hot-Plug controllers it uses, also has two Hot-Swap PSUs with cooling fans. Each controller can use several ways to communicate with Fault Tolerant links. Fault Tolerant is a feature that is enabled on the storage system and if an error occurs, it prevents the work from stopping.

HP MSA storage Components

Generally, Volume, or logical drive, is a single, available storage space that is intended to be specific and easy to use for a single file system and is located on a single partition of a hard disk. Also, a snapshot is a set of pointers that point to data stored on a hard drive or SAN storage and look something like a table of contents, but the computer looks at it like a complete backup of data. Clone is an identical copy of the information. In Disk Cloning, the storage information is completely copied. After doing this, the information is usually saved as a Disk Image and transferred to a storage device. The destination storage can be another hard drive, DVD or USB Drive. Disk Cloning is also known as Ghost Imaging.

HP MSA storage Clone and Snapshot

When you want to sell your computer and you want to make sure the information on the computer is erased. But at the same time, you do not want to lose your information and transfer information and configure the device completely and accurately to a new computer or system. In order to recover the system, for example when there is a problem with the system, you can use disk cloning to restore the system to the state before the failure.
