Storage Capacity and Scalability

The HP AJ745A StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 2212fc is a 12-bay hard drive array that offers high-performance storage capacity and scalability.

In terms of storage capacity, each of the 12 bays can accommodate a 2.5-inch SAS or SATA hard drive with a maximum capacity of 8TB. This means that the maximum raw storage capacity of the array is 96TB (12 bays x 8TB per bay). However, the usable storage capacity will depend on the RAID configuration used and any overheads for redundancy, such as hot spare drives.

In terms of scalability, the AJ745A supports multiple SAS or SATA hard drives, allowing you to easily expand the storage capacity of your system as your data storage needs grow. Additionally, the dual enhanced controllers provide failover protection, ensuring that the storage array remains available even if one of the controllers fails.

In conclusion, the AJ745A StorageWorks Modular Smart Array 2212fc offers a high level of storage capacity and scalability, making it an ideal solution for organizations looking to expand their data storage infrastructure.

Data Protection and Redundancy

The AJ745A HP 12 Bay Storageworks Modular Smart Array 2212fc Dual Enhanced Controller Hard Drive Array provides data protection and redundancy through several features:

  • Dual Controller Architecture: The dual controller architecture ensures data protection as data is mirrored between the two controllers and ensures that if one controller fails, the other can take over with no downtime.
  • Hot-swappable Hard Drives: The hard drives in the AJ745A are hot-swappable, meaning they can be replaced without shutting down the system. This ensures that if a hard drive fails, it can be replaced without any impact on the data.
  • Redundant Power Supplies: The AJ745A has two redundant power supplies that provide power to the array. This ensures that if one power supply fails, the other can take over without any disruption to the system.
  • Redundant Cooling Fans: The AJ745A also has redundant cooling fans that provide cooling to the array. This ensures that if one fan fails, the other can take over without any disruption to the system.
  • Data Backup and Restore: The AJ745A supports data backup and restore through software-based snapshots, remote replication, and tape backup.
