This device is designed to provide reliability, security, and scalability, allowing organizations to meet their storage needs. In this article, we will provide an overview of the HPE 871039-002 Smart Array E208i-a SR Gen10 Storage Controller, including its features, benefits, and specifications.
A storage controller is a type of hardware device that is used to manage and control the flow of data between a computer or server and storage devices, such as hard drives or solid-state drives (SSDs). The controller is responsible for managing the storage devices, including reading and writing data to them, and protecting data from loss or corruption.
RAID technology is often used with storage controllers to provide data redundancy and protection. RAID technology enables data to be spread across multiple storage devices, so that if one device fails, the data can be recovered from the other devices. This provides data protection and can prevent data loss in the event of a hardware failure.

About the Smart array controller
Helwett Packard was notably the first company to introduce RAID subsystems into the world of network servers, and their range of smart array controllers support RAID levels 0 through to 60.
The performance and data availability capacities of Hewlett Packard smart array controllers are always a work in progress. Nevertheless, the current capabilities of the device allow it to effortlessly maintain a high I/O throughput and remain reliable through the process.
Smart array controller features
Smart array controllers feature:
- A competent multi-core and multi-processing engine:
The competent engine of the Smart array controller is in charge of the RAID system. As the central source of power, this device changes high-level read or write requests that are derived from an application into single bits of information that are required for the RAID array. Presently, the generation of smart array controllers we have made use of an implanted RAID-on-Chip (RoC) processor that operates at 600 MHz.
- Customized connection settings and hardware tuning:
HPE smart array controllers manage errors by tuning the connection settings on each smart array controller to work in harmony with the PCIe bus and every other connected device. Through customized controller link settings, signaling margins are maximized and error rates are drastically reduced. The smart array utilizes a default configuration that helps it power up and function effectively, and can detect when to "step down" operating speeds to maintain a connection.
- Advanced caching abilities:
- Read-ahead caching: Utilizing an adaptive read-ahead algorithm which notably improves I/O performance by anticipating data needs and cutting down wait time, the HPE smart array controller completely eliminates the issues that arise from fixed read-ahead schemes.
- Write-back caching: This feature allows the smooth running of applications to continue without having to wait for write operations to complete to the disk. Thanks to this feature, the smart array controller can round off write operations in microseconds instead of milliseconds.
Furthermore, the latest generation of smart array controllers can easily handle 256 MiB, 512 Mib, and 1 GiB cache modules, thus increasing the overall array performance by doubling the bandwidth for moving cache data to and from the storage system.Shop our exciting collection of smart array controllers now.
