It is compatible with HP Integrity servers running HP-UX 11i v3, as well as other servers that support PCI-E expansion cards. This controller requires a minimum of 512MB of memory and a 1.2GHz processor or faster.
The P812 features a low-profile design, which allows it to be installed in servers with limited space. It also includes two internal mini-SAS connectors and four external mini-SAS connectors, providing users with a wide range of connectivity options.
Management and Monitoring
The HP 487204-B21 Integrity Smart Array P812 includes a web-based management interface that allows users to configure and monitor the controller from a remote location. This interface provides users with detailed information about the status of the controller, including drive health, temperature, and performance.

SAAP includes features such as online capacity expansion, which allows users to add additional hard drives to an existing array without having to back up and restore their data.
In Summary, the HP 487204-B21 Integrity Smart Array P812 is a high-performance SAS RAID controller that is designed to provide reliable data storage for servers. Its 24-port SAS interface, support for a wide range of RAID levels, and 1GB FBWC make it an ideal choice for data-intensive applications. Its compatibility with a wide range of operating systems and support for online RAID level migration and hot-plug hard drive replacement make it a flexible and easy-to-use solution for server administrators.
