Product Overview of the HPE P26324-B21

The HPE P26324-B21 MegaRAID MR216i-p is a PCI-E storage controller designed to provide enterprise-level storage solutions. It is a RAID controller that offers data protection and improved performance for high-performance computing (HPC) applications. This storage controller is suitable for use in server environments where high-performance storage and data protection are critical.


The HPE P26324-B21 MegaRAID MR216i-p storage controller offers several features that make it an ideal choice for high-performance computing applications. One of its key features is its support for RAID levels 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60. This means that it can support a wide range of RAID configurations, including those that require high levels of redundancy and performance.

Another important feature of the MegaRAID MR216i-p is its support for up to 16 SAS or SATA hard drives. This allows for a large amount of data storage, making it ideal for use in applications such as data centers and cloud storage environments.

In addition, the MR216i-p includes a dedicated processor that offloads RAID processing from the host server. This can improve performance and reduce the workload on the server, which can be especially important in high-performance computing environments.


The HPE P26324-B21 MegaRAID MR216i-p storage controller is compatible with a wide range of servers and operating systems. It is designed to work with HPE ProLiant servers, as well as third-party servers that support PCI-E storage controllers.

The MR216i-p is also compatible with a range of operating systems, including Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server, VMware ESXi, and Citrix XenServer. This makes it a flexible choice for IT departments that need to support multiple operating systems and server platforms.

Installation and Configuration

The HPE P26324-B21 MegaRAID MR216i-p storage controller is easy to install and configure. It comes with a user-friendly management interface that allows administrators to configure RAID levels, manage disk arrays, and monitor system performance.

The MR216i-p can be installed in any available PCI-E slot in a server. Once installed, it can be configured using the HPE Smart Storage Administrator (SSA) tool, which provides a graphical user interface for managing RAID arrays and monitoring system performance.

The SSA tool allows administrators to configure RAID arrays using a wizard-based interface, which simplifies the process of creating and managing disk arrays. It also provides a range of advanced features, such as predictive failure analysis and support for online capacity expansion and RAID level migration.

In Summary, the HPE P26324-B21 MegaRAID MR216i-p storage controller is a powerful and flexible solution for enterprise-level storage requirements. It offers support for a wide range of RAID configurations and can handle up to 16 SAS or SATA hard drives, making it suitable for use in data centers and cloud storage environments.

The MR216i-p includes a dedicated processor that offloads RAID processing from the host server, which can improve performance and reduce the workload on the server. It is also compatible with a wide range of servers and operating systems, making it a flexible choice for IT departments that need to support multiple platforms.

The HPE P26324-B21 MegaRAID MR216i-p storage controller is a reliable and powerful solution for enterprise-level storage requirements. Its ease of installation and configuration, combined with its advanced features, make it an ideal choice for IT departments that need to manage large amounts of data and ensure data protection and high performance.

Storage Controller

Here on allhdd.com, we offer consumers like you some of the best storage solutions on the market. Our wide range of quality storage controllers contains products in the following categories:

MSA 2000 Series, Powervault, 4-Port, Poweredge VRTX, PCI-E, ServeRAID, 2-Port, Equallogic, MSA2040, and MSA2050.

A storage controller, otherwise called storage processor or array controller, is a device that regulates or controls storage arrays and essentially contains the three types of elements, including the following;

  • The central processing unit,
  • The Cache Memory,
  • The connection of interface with the network and memory devices.

If you have multiple memory devices, our storage controllers will help create a single memory channel. In other words, our storage controllers combine the memory areas in various memory devices and render them as a single memory area to your server.

A storage controller picks out the appropriate device from multiple memory devices to fetch data when it receives a request from the server to write data. It then stores the selected devices' data.

On the other hand, when there is a request to read data from the server, the storage controller searches the location where the associated data is stored. It reads the data from the location (memory device) and then transfers it to the server.

Qualities of a good Storage Controller

In addition to reading and writing data efficiently and stably, your storage controller carries out processing tasks to complete many functions, including dynamic volume capacity allocation, among others.

The storage array's performance can be directly affected or determined by the storage controller's speed and capabilities in the advanced data center. High-speed storage infrastructure is a vital factor in storage arrays as it enables the network to send data at 10 Gbps using Fiber Chanel of 10 GbE or Gen 5 (16 Gbps).

RAID And How It Works

RAID stands for redundant array of independent disks. Suppose you intend to store the same data in multiple solid-state drives or locations (hard disks); in that case, a RAID card is an efficient means of achieving this purpose without storage failure. To efficiently control or regulate, read and write these data, a storage controller is mandatory. Thanks to our collection of high-efficient storage controllers, your storage array is in good hands.

Data redundancy is a system design to facilitate the duplication of a component, so if it crashes, there will be an alternative. There are various RAID levels, but not all have the purpose of implementing redundancy. RAID operates by storing data on multiple disks and enabling input/output (I/O) operations to overlap stably. Multiple disks increase the mean time between failures (MTBF); hence, storing data in arrays also increases fault tolerance.


As the name suggests, a RAID controller controls hard disk drives in a storage array. It can serve as an abstraction level between the physical disks and the operating system (OS), assembling an array of disks as logical units. A RAID controller can either be software-based or hardware-based. In the latter, a physical controller operates the array. Depending on the manufacturer, the controller can also be engineered to support SATA and SCSI "Scuzzy" drive formats. A hardware-based RAID controller may again come as a component in the server's motherboard.

On the other hand, in the software-based RAID, the controller takes advantage of the hardware system's resources, including the memory and the central processor. It carries out the same functions as a hardware-based RAID controller. However, the software-based RAID controllers may not improve the performance of the storage system.
