The Smart Array Advantage
HP's innovative design and integration work of the Smart Array family of products creates customer value that is unmatched in the industry. Use of Smart Array products across multiple applications results in a much lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than any other server storage RAID product. The HP Smart Array family brings an unparalleled return on investment through:
  • Data Compatibility among all models of Smart Array controllers allows simple and easy upgrades any time needs for higher performance, capacity, and availability increase. Even successive generations of Smart Array controllers understand the data format of other Smart Array Controllers.

  • Consistent Configuration and Management Tools. All Smart Array products utilize a standard set of management and utility software. These tools minimize Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by reducing training requirements and technical expertise necessary to install and maintain the HP server storage.

  • Universal Hard Drive form factor is for use across multiple HP servers, disk enclosures and storage systems. With compatibility across many enterprise platforms, you are free to deploy and re-deploy these drives to quickly deliver increased storage capacity, migrate data between systems, and easily manage spare drives.

  • Pre-Failure Warranty means HP Insight Manager not only reports when a drive is going to fail but allows replacement of failing drives prior to actual failure. For complete details, consult the HP Support Center or refer to your HP Server documentation.

Key features
  • Seamless upgrades from past generations and upgrades to next generation HP high performance and high capacity Serial Attached SCSI Smart Array controllers.

  • The SA-P212 Controller supports the HP D2600 Disk Enclosure, HP D2700 Disk Enclosure, and the HP 600 Modular Disk System. 6Gb/s SAS technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth and contains full compatibility with 3Gb/s SATA technology.

  • 3G SAS technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth up to 300 MBs per physical link and contains full compatibility with 1.5G SATA technology.

  • x8 5G PCI Express 2.0 host interface technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth up to 5 GB/s maximum bandwidth.

  • Addition of the battery backed cache upgrade enables Capacity Expansion, RAID migration, and Stripe Size Migration. Additionally, Smart Array Advanced Pack license key enables RAID 6 (ADG), 6+0, Advanced Capacity Expansion, Mirror Splitting and Recombining in Offline Mode, Drive Erase, Performance Optimization-Degraded Reads and Read Coalescing (VOD)

  • Mix-and-match SAS and SATA hard drives, lets you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your computing environment.

  • Support for > 2 TB in a single logical drive.

  • Support for HP SAS tape and tape automation products.

  • Software consistency among all Smart Array family products: Array Configuration Utility (ACU), Option ROM Configuration for Arrays (ORCA), Systems Insight Manager, Array Diagnostic Utility (ADU) and SmartStart. Some of these features are not available with ProLiant 100 series platforms.

  • The SA-P212 controller supports up to 54 drives.

  • Low-profile PCI Express form factor - ships with a full size bracket for deployment in either a low-profile or full sized slot.

Performance
HP's High Performance Architecture sets new boundaries of industry performance expectations!
  • 6Gb/s SAS

  • x8 6Gb/s SAS physical links (compatible with 3G SATA)

  • 256 MB DDR2-800 battery-backed cache provides up to 4.2 GB/s maximum bandwidth.

  • x8 5G PCI Express host interface provides 4 GB/s maximum bandwidth.

  • MIPS 32-bit Processor

  • Read ahead caching

  • Write-back caching (with battery-backed write cache upgrade)

Native Command Queuing
Native Command Queuing (NCQ) is a technology designed to increase performance of SATA hard disk drives by allowing the individual hard disk to internally optimize the order in which received read and write commands are executed. This can reduce the amount of unnecessary going back-and-forth on the drive's heads, resulting in increased performance for workloads where multiple simultaneous read/write requests are outstanding, most often occurring in server or storage-type applications. Without NCQ the drive has to process and complete one command at a time. For NCQ to be enabled, it must be supported and turned on in the controller and in the hard drive itself.
Capacity
Given the increasing need for high performance and rapid capacity expansion, the SA-P212 offers:
Up to 24.3TB of external storage per PCI slot with 6x internal 450GB 3.5" SAS hard drives and 4x HP 60 Modular Smart Array enclosures or HP D2600 Disk Enclosures and 48 x 450GB 3.5" SAS hard drives.
Up to 54TB of total storage per PCI slot with 6x internal 1TB 3.5" SATA MDL hard drives and 4x HP 60 Modular Smart Array enclosures or HP D2600 Disk Enclosures and 48 x 1TB 3.5" SATA MDL hard drives.
Up to 17.4TB of total storage per PCI slot with 8x internal 300GB SFF SAS hard drives and 4x HP 70 Modular Smart Array enclosures or HP D2600 Disk Enclosures and 50 x 300GB SFF SAS hard drives.
Up to 14.5 TB of total storage per PCI slot with 8x internal 250GB SFF SATA hard drives and 4x HP 70 Modular Smart Array enclosures or HP D2600 Disk Enclosures and 100 x 250GB SFF SATA hard drives
Note: Support for greater than 2TB in a single logical drive. Additional capacity up to 180 with an expander.

  • Online Capacity Expansion (with BBWC upgrade)

  • Online Advanced Capacity Expansion (with Smart Array Advanced Pack upgrade)

  • Online RAID Level Migration (with BBWC upgrade)

  • Online Stripe Size Migration (with BBWC upgrade)

  • Global Online Spare

  • Pre-Failure Warranty

Fault Prevention
The following features offer detection of possible failures before they occur, allowing preventive action to be taken:
  • S.M.A.R.T.: Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology first developed at HP detects possible hard disk failure before it occurs, allowing replacement of the component before failure occurs.

  • Drive Parameter Tracking monitors drive operational parameters, predicting failure and notifying the administrator.

  • Dynamic Sector Repairing continually performs background surface scans on the hard disk drives during inactive periods and automatically remaps bad sectors, ensuring data integrity.

  • Smart Array Cache Tracking monitors integrity of controller cache, allowing pre-failure preventative maintenance.

Ease of Use
Consistency and Upgradability make the Smart Array family unique in the industry:
  • GUI based configuration, management and diagnostic software tools
