We are providing specifications below to explain why you should consider purchasing the HP SAS Storage Blade Enclosure, including a general overview, performance specifications, relevant images, media files, and technical information about the AP880A compatibility.

Performance and Scalability

The HP StorageWorks D2200sb is a PCIe-based storage blade designed to provide high-performance and scalable storage solutions for data centers.

In terms of performance, the D2200sb supports fast data transfer speeds with its PCIe 3.0 interface and can achieve high IOPS (Input/Output Operations per Second) with its hardware-accelerated RAID. The blade supports both SAS and SATA hard drives, which allows customers to choose the right drive type based on their performance and cost requirements.

In terms of scalability, the D2200sb supports multiple drive bays, so you can add more storage capacity as your needs grow. Additionally, the blade supports multiple RAID levels, which allow you to optimize the storage performance and data protection based on your requirements.

Moreover, the D2200sb is designed for easy deployment and maintenance. It fits into HP ProLiant server blade enclosures and supports hot-swappable drives, so you can replace failed drives without disrupting your operations. Additionally, the blade supports online RAID level migration, so you can change the RAID level of your storage volumes without downtime.

Reliability and Durability

The HP Storageworks D2200sb PCIE Storage Blade Hard Drive Array (AP880A) is considered to be a reliable and durable storage solution. The AP880A features multiple redundant components, including redundant power supplies and fans, which help to ensure that the system continues to operate even if one component fails. The use of PCIE technology, which provides a high-speed data transfer rate, also helps to ensure that the system operates quickly and efficiently.

Additionally, the AP880A is designed to support large amounts of data, making it ideal for use in data centers and other high-density storage environments. The use of SAS drives in the system helps to ensure that the system can handle large amounts of data without compromising on performance. The drives are also hot-swappable, which means that they can be replaced without shutting down the system.

The AP880A is also designed to be durable and long-lasting, with a metal casing that helps to protect the system from physical damage. The use of high-quality components, such as advanced firmware and high-speed chipsets, helps to ensure that the system operates smoothly and reliably.

Data Protection and Security

The AP880A HP Storageworks D2200sb PCIE Storage Blade Hard Drive Array is designed with data protection and security in mind. Here are a few ways that it achieves this:

  • Redundant components: The AP880A has multiple redundant components, such as dual power supplies and multiple network interfaces, to ensure high availability and data protection.
  • Data backup and recovery: The AP880A has built-in backup and recovery features to ensure that data can be easily restored in the event of a failure or data loss.
  • RAID protection: The AP880A supports multiple levels of RAID protection, including RAID 0, 1, 5, and 6, to provide data redundancy and protection against disk failures.
  • Secure data storage: The AP880A includes encryption capabilities to protect data at rest and prevent unauthorized access to sensitive information.
  • Remote management: The AP880A includes a remote management interface that allows for secure, remote monitoring and management of the storage array, reducing the risk of unauthorized access to sensitive data.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

Blade Server

Traditional servers for large data centers demand a lot of resources in terms of cost, space, power consumption, and cabling requirements. This can be too much for small and medium businesses. That's where you may need to consider investing in a blade server.

What Is a Blade Server?

A blade server is a thin physical modular enclosure that comes with its CPU, network controllers, and built-in storage drives.

An individual modular circuit that is slid into the server's bay is called a server blade. This can be a storage server blade such as Hard Disk Drive

Therefore, a server blade gets its power, connection, and other system requirements from a blade server enclosure.

Each blade server can work with a wide range of Operating Systems for desired flexibility.

As your server requirements increase, you may consider upgrading its processing power, memory requirements, and Input/output bandwidth.

Modern blade servers have multiple redundancy power supplies for enhanced reliability.

Due to their thin or "blade" size, you'll not require much space to mount them. With just a single rack, you can have multiple server blades.

If your storage requirement is much higher, you'll need servers that are simply a combination of multiple server blades mounted on server chassis.

For an enterprise stable and large storage solution, you'll need to consider SAS storage blade solutions.

Blade Computer / Blade PCs

If you need a solution that will operate as a server while allowing you to use it as a normal PC, you should go for a blade computer. Its modular design allows for easy and secure server rack mounting

However, unlike the blade servers that will support several thin clients, Blade PC will only connect to one client at a time.

Advantages of Blade Server | Blade Computer

1. Blade Server Requires Less Space

Their thin design saves space while allowing you to achieve all your computing needs. This is a perfect high-performance option if you need a high-density server solution with limited space requirements.

2. Easier Server Management –Centralized System

Since the connection is through a single interface, monitoring and managing the server is much easier.

3. No Costly and Messy Cabling Needed

With blade servers, your data center will be well organized with low maintained costs.

4. Blade Server Allows for Expansion

While it does not offer the most convenient expansion options, some blade servers come with expansion slots. Modern servers have options for expansion cards. This may demand more space

5. Hassle-Free Installation

If you already have an enclosure or chassis in place, to add a new blade server, all you need is to slide it into a free slot

6. Convenience of Computer Blade

For the Computer blade, you'll have all the functions of a standard computer.

Some Cons of Blade Servers

1. Excess Heat for Multiple Servers

If you have several blade servers, excess heat may be generated. This can impact your server's performance.

2. High Initial Cost

You'll have to incur high initial expenses for long-term economic gains. The high initial cost applies also to blade computers. Purchasing a rack server with compatible power input is a suitable option.

3. Powering Inconveniences

Blade servers may require that they are put off during the processing of certain tasks. During such occasions, data within server blades cannot be accessed. Chassis power issues can adversely affect the server.

4. Limited Expansion

Since most blade servers can only accommodate between 2 to 4 Hard Disk Drives or storage server blades, expansion may require that one gets additional space. This implies considering purchasing an additional server.

5. Limited Adaptability

They have no PCIe connection slots that can ensure full usage of features. Instead, they come with proprietary slots which hinder adaptability.
