Enhances Storage Performance
The HP StorageWorks P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array Dual Combo Controller Card (AW567A) is a storage controller card that enhances the performance of the HP P2000 G3 MSA storage array. The Dual Combo Controller Card provides both Fibre Channel (FC) and Internet SCSI (iSCSI) connectivity, allowing the storage array to be connected to both FC and iSCSI host servers. This provides customers with the flexibility to choose the most appropriate protocol based on their requirements and network infrastructure.
The dual-controller design of the AW567A card provides improved storage performance, compared to single-controller storage arrays, by distributing I/O requests across both controllers. This reduces the load on a single controller and minimizes the impact of a single point of failure. The Dual Combo Controller Card also provides load balancing and failover capabilities, ensuring that data is protected and available even in the event of a controller failure.
Additionally, the AW567A card provides support for multiple storage tiers, including SAS and SATA drives, allowing customers to implement a tiered storage strategy that balances cost and performance. This can result in improved storage performance and reduced costs, as data can be automatically moved between storage tiers based on usage patterns and performance requirements.
Advanced Storage Management Features
The HP Storageworks P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array Dual Combo Controller Card (AW567A) provides advanced storage management features to ensure high performance and reliable storage operations. Some of these features include:
- Dual Controller Configuration: The dual controller configuration provides high availability and data protection by having two independent controllers managing the storage array. In case of a failure, the other controller can take over without any disruption to the storage operations.
- Snapshot Technology: The snapshot technology allows administrators to create multiple point-in-time copies of data for backup or disaster recovery purposes. This reduces the time and effort required for backup and recovery operations.
- Remote Replication: The P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array supports remote replication, which allows administrators to replicate data to a remote site for disaster recovery purposes. This helps protect critical data from data loss due to natural disasters or hardware failures.
- Thin Provisioning: Thin provisioning allows administrators to allocate storage on an as-needed basis, reducing the amount of wasted storage space. This also helps to optimize storage utilization and reduce costs.
- Multipathing: The P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array supports multipathing, which provides multiple paths between the storage array and the server, ensuring high availability and performance in case of a path failure.
- Quality of Service (QoS): The P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array supports QoS, which allows administrators to prioritize storage resources based on application requirements, ensuring high performance for critical applications.
- Dynamic Capacity Expansion: The P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array supports dynamic capacity expansion, allowing administrators to add storage capacity without downtime or disruption to the storage operations.
These advanced storage management features provide a high level of reliability, performance, and data protection for the HP Storageworks P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array Dual Combo Controller Card (AW567A).
Performance and Scalability
The HP Storageworks P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array Dual Combo Controller Card (AW567A) is a high-performance storage solution designed for small and medium-sized businesses. It offers a combination of Fibre Channel (FC) and iSCSI connectivity options for flexible storage access, and is capable of delivering fast and reliable data transfer rates.
The dual controller card in the P2000 G3 MSA array provides high availability, ensuring continuous operation even in the event of a single controller failure. It also provides active/active controller pairing, allowing for improved performance and increased reliability.
In terms of scalability, the P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI LFF Array supports large storage capacities and can be easily expanded as needed. It is equipped with large form factor (LFF) drive bays, allowing for larger drives to be installed for increased storage density. The dual combo controller card also supports multiple storage domains, enabling different groups of users to have access to specific arrays within the system.
