Redundancy and High Availability

The HP StorageWorks 2012FC is a network storage enclosure that provides both redundancy and high availability to ensure data protection and reliability. Here's how:

  • Redundancy: The HP StorageWorks 2012FC has multiple redundant components, such as dual power supplies and dual cooling fans, to minimize the risk of a single point of failure. This means that if one component fails, the other will take over and keep the enclosure running. Additionally, the 2012FC supports RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) configurations, which can provide data redundancy and protection against disk failures.
  • High Availability: The 2012FC supports high-availability features such as cluster support and active-active controllers, which allow multiple controllers to operate simultaneously and provide automatic failover in case of a controller failure. This helps to ensure that the storage enclosure is always available and that data is accessible even in the event of a failure.

Performance and Efficiency

The AJ742A HP StorageWorks 2012FC is a network storage enclosure that offers high performance and efficiency for data storage and management. It has a capacity of 48 x 3.5-inch drives, making it ideal for large scale data storage and management.

Performance: This storage enclosure is equipped with high-speed connectivity options such as Fibre Channel, which provides fast data transfer rates of up to 4 Gbps. This ensures that large amounts of data can be transferred quickly and efficiently, reducing downtime and improving overall system performance.

Efficiency: The AJ742A HP StorageWorks 2012FC is designed to be energy-efficient, reducing the power consumption of the system. It has a power-saving mode that automatically turns off the drives when they are not in use, reducing energy consumption and lowering operational costs. Additionally, its compact design makes it easier to manage and maintain, reducing the cost and complexity of data center operations.

In conclusion, the AJ742A HP StorageWorks 2012FC offers high performance and efficiency in data storage and management, making it an ideal solution for organizations with large-scale data storage needs.

Management and Monitoring

The AJ742A HP StorageWorks 2012FC 48 x 3.5 Inch 1/3H Rack Mountable Network Storage Enclosure is a network attached storage (NAS) device that provides centralized storage for data and applications. It can be managed and monitored through a web-based interface called the HP System Management Homepage (SMH).


  • Configuration: The SMH allows administrators to configure the device's network settings, storage pools, volumes, and file systems. It also provides the option to set up user accounts and permissions for accessing the storage.
  • Firmware Updates: The SMH provides a convenient way to upgrade the device's firmware, ensuring that it is running the latest version with improved features and bug fixes.
  • Logs and Alerts: The SMH provides detailed logs and alerts that enable administrators to monitor the device's health and performance. The logs can be viewed, searched, and exported for further analysis.


  • Performance Metrics: The SMH provides real-time monitoring of performance metrics, such as disk utilization, read/write throughput, and response time. This helps administrators identify any performance bottlenecks and take corrective action.
  • Disk Health: The SMH provides disk health monitoring, which enables administrators to monitor the status of the disks and identify any potential disk failures.
  • Network Status: The SMH provides network status monitoring, which helps administrators monitor the network connectivity and identify any network issues.

In conclusion, the AJ742A HP StorageWorks 2012FC 48 x 3.5 Inch 1/3H Rack Mountable Network Storage Enclosure is a powerful and flexible NAS device that can be managed and monitored easily through the SMH web-based interface. This allows administrators to ensure that the device is running optimally and provides high-availability storage for data and applications.
