The HP StorageWorks 2000fc Modular Smart Array represents the fiber channel model of the MSA2000 family, a generation of HP storage arrays specifically designed for entry-level customers featuring the very latest in functionality and technology at highly affordable price points.
The MSA2000fc is a Fiber Channel connected 2U storage area network (SAN) solution designed for small to medium size deployments or remote locations. It comes in three models - a basic single controller model for low initial cost with the ability to upgrade later; a model with dual controllers standard; and a high performance model with dual enhanced controllers for the most demanding entry-level situations. Each model comes standard with twelve drive bays able to simultaneously accommodate 3.5-inch enterprise-class SAS drives and archival-class SATA drives.
The MSA2000 offers many distinct features such as the ability to mix SAS and SATA RAID sets (volumes) within the same enclosure greatly increases the flexibility and economy of assigning mission-critical data and archival data to the proper drive type. The wide variety of RAID levels supported assures the user of just the right level of performance and protection demanded by his application. The capability of implementing controller-based snapshots and clones affordably brings enterprise-class functionality into smaller departments, remote locations, and small but growing companies.
The MSA2000fc is a member of HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array offerings, delivering simple and affordable storage technology to meet today's demanding and growing IT needs. These storage solutions offer excellent price/performance and availability features for direct attach environments, small clusters, workgroups and entry-level SAN environments. Each solution is designed to be easy to deploy, secure, with low management costs, while driving rapid return on investment.
