Features

ENERGY STAR Certified

The HPE MSA 2040 SKU’s are now ENERGY STAR certified. ENERGY STAR certified products are energy efficient which result in cost savings via reduced energy consumption and regulatory rebates. Please refer to the US EPA website for details on ENERGY STAR certification criteria and process. MSA 2040 ENERGY STAR Certification is listed on the EPA website

 

As a part of gaining ENERGY STAR certification, MSA 2040 SKUs were required to change such that Hewlett Packard Enterprise and our customers can delineate between product shipped before the EPA recognized the MSA 2040 as ENERGY STAR compliant and arrays shipped after the MSA 2040 obtaining the official certification. 

 

No physical changes were made to the MSA 2040 or any of its components to pass the ENERGY STAR compliance testing other than SKU numbering and labels (physical and electronic).  There are no physical, form, fit or function differences between the older and the ENERGY STAR compliant HPE MSA 2040 SKU’s. 

 

No new qualification or testing is required in order to use/substitute the new ENERGY STAR certified SKU’s.

 

NOTE: The EOL SKU’s in the table below were discontinued on July 31, 2015. The replacement ENERGY STAR SKU’s are listed below.

All MSA 2040 models offer a common set of valuable features:

NOTE:   
Customers must upgrade their MSA 2040 controller firmware to GL101 or later for iSCSI functionality
Customers must upgrade their MSA 2040 controller firmware to GL105 or later for Self-Encrypting Drive functionality

Customers must upgrade their MSA 2040 controller firmware to GL200 or later for MSA virtualizations features

Customers must upgrade their MSA 2040 controller firmware to GL210 or later for enhanced performance

Customers must upgrade their MSA 2040 controller firmware to GL220 or later for additional MSA virtualization features (such as remote snap replication for iSCSI, virtual tier affinity, large pool support, snapshot space management, scheduler and volume copy on virtual storage)

  • MSA 2040 supports SSD drives which allow IT managers to boost IOPS performance.
  • Automated Sub-Lun Tiering. The MSA 2040 can manage up to three tiers of storage: Performance tier, Standard tier and Archive tier. This feature is available with GL200 firmware or newer.
  • SSD Performance Tier to improve random read and write performance.   Creation of an SSD Performance Tier for both read and write capabilities requires a Performance Auto Tiering License (D4T79A/ D4T79AE).   The Performance Auto Tiering License is not required in Linear Storage configurations not utilizing Virtual Storage Disk-Groups and Pools.
  • SSD Read Cache to improve random read performance. A maximum of 2 SSD’s are supported per pool utilizing a maximum of 4TB of read cache per controller.
  • Thin Provisioning allows storage allocation of physical storage resources only once they are consumed by an application.  Thin Provisioning also allows over-provisioning of physical storage pool resources allowing ease of growth for volumes without predicting storage capacity upfront. Thin Provisioning is available with GL200 firmware or newer.
  • Snapshot enhancements for virtual storage, including performance improvements, hierarchical snapshots, and simplified resource management. Administrators can monitor and optionally control snapshot space usage with GL220 firmware or later.
  • Prioritize data by assigning appropriate affinity level (Performance, No Affinity & Archive) with GL220 firmware or later.
  • Large Pool Support is available with GL220 firmware or later. Customers can now enjoy 512 TiB capacity per virtual pool by enabling large pool support.
  • MSA 2040 supports Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) to allow customers to secure their critical data and comply with all required regulatory mandates.
  • Simple storage management including an intuitive browser-based user interface.
  • Storage Management Utility V3 (SMU). This new MSA management GUI brings a new modern look and feel to array management. SMU V3 available with GL200 firmware or newer. Existing MSA customers can choose to use the new SMU V3 or to continue to use the previous generation SMU V2 if new virtualization features are not required.
  • MSA 2040 comes standard with 64 controller-based snapshots and clone capability (volume copy is available for both linear and virtual storage with GL220 firmware or later; pre-GL220 firmware, volume copy is only available on linear storage). Arrays also support an optional 512 snaps. Choose either a low-cost single controller array or start with a configured dual controller array model to fit the budget, high availability, and performance needs.
  • All models feature a wide variety of drives: High-performance SSD drives, enterprise-class SAS, SED and SAS Midline drives.
  • The MSA 2040 will support a maximum of 7 disk enclosures (either LFF and/or SFF). Add-on enclosures can either be D2700 Small Form Factor (SFF) drive enclosures or MSA 2040 Large Form Factor (LFF) disk enclosures. The array can grow incrementally from a few drives to 96 LFF or 199 SFF drives.
  • Disks Groups can be spanned across multiple enclosures RAID levels 1, 5, 6, 10. Linear Vdisks support RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 50.
  • Maximum hard drive counts vary by RAID levels: 2 drive max for RAID level 1; max of 16 drives for RAID levels 0, 3, 5, 6, and 10; max of 32 drives for RAID level 50. With GL200 or newer firmware multiple Disk Groups can be aggregated into a Storage Pool.
  • The maximum LUN size is 140TB (128TiB)
  • Storage Pools allow data on a given LUN to span across all drives in a pool. When capacity is added to a system, the user is also getting a performance benefit of the additional spindles –hence the term Wide Striping. Storage Pools are available with GL200 firmware or newer.
  • Non-disruptive on-line controller code upgrade (requires dual controllers w/ multi-pathing software)
  • Upgradable by design. Owners of an MSA P2000 G3 and an MSA 1040 array are able to do data-in-place controller upgrades to the new MSA 2040 array. This unique ability protects the earlier investments in drives, and JBODs.

Scalability

The MSA 2040 array configurations are designed to allow an installation to begin with smaller capacity and be able to grow gradually as needed. The flexibility of SSD, SAS or SAS MDL drives technology, form factors, sizes, speeds, and costs per GB allows a system to easily fit in almost any budget.

  • Large Form Factor configurations can scale up to 120 TB SAS MDL, expandable to 800 TB SAS MDL with the addition of a maximum of seven 3.5-inch LFF Disk Enclosures.
  • Small Form Factor configurations can scale up to 48 TB SAS. With the addition of seven SFF Disk Enclosures, the MSA 2040 storage can support 398.2 TB SAS.
  • Users may configure a 24-drive MSA 2040 array head with 12-drive LFF 3.5-inch disk enclosures. This is an excellent option for a configuration that supports high-speed SFF SSDs or fast SFF enterprise-class SAS drives in the array head, combined with economical LFF drives staged for archival purposes, all in the same array.

Vdisks

The Vdisk nomenclature is being replaced by Disk Group.  In the Linear Storage and in the SMU V2 you will see reference to Vdisk in Linear Storage and the SMU V3 you will see Disk Group. Vdisk and Disk Group are essentially the same. Vdisks have additional RAID types (RAID 0, 3) not available only in the CLI.

Disk Group

 

 

 

 

LUNs

 

 

 

 

Storage Pools

A Disk Group is a collection of disks in a given redundancy mode (RAID 1, 5, 6, 10, 50). It is equivalent to a Vdisk in Linear Storage and utilizes the same proven fault tolerant technology used by Linear Storage. Disk Group RAID level and size can be created based on performance and/or capacity requirements. With GL200 or newer firmware multiple Disk Groups can be allocated into a Storage Pool for use with the Virtual Storage features.

 

The MSA 2040 arrays support 512 volumes and up to 512 snapshots in a system. All of these volumes can be mapped to LUNs. Maximum LUN sizes up to 140TB (128 TiB), the LUNs size are dependent on the storage architecture: Linear vs. Virtualized. Thin Provisioning allows the user to create the LUNs independent of the physical storage.

 

The GL200 firmware or newer introduces Storage Pools – which are comprised of one or more Disk Groups. LUNs are no longer be restricted to a single Vdisk as with Linear Storage. A volume’s data on a given LUN can now span all disk drives in a pool.   When capacity is added to a system, users will benefit from the performance of all spindles in that pool.

Leveraging Storage Pools, the MSA 2040 supports large, flexible Volumes with sizes up to 128TiB and facilitates seamless capacity expansion. As volumes are expanded data automatically reflows to balance capacity utilization on all drives.

RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 50

In addition to the usual RAID levels, the MSA 2040 features several important additional levels. RAID 6 offers the highest level of RAID protection. It allocates two sets of parity data across drives and allows simultaneous write operations. It can withstand two simultaneous drive failures without downtime or data loss. RAID 10 is mirroring and striping without parity and allows large Disk Groups to be created with high performance and mirroring for fault tolerance. RAID 50 combines the block striping and parity of RAID 5 with the straight block striping of RAID 0, yielding higher performance than RAID 5 through the addition of RAID 0, particularly during writes.

Performance

The performance figures provided here are for reference as many variables exist between array configurations, workloads, hard drive types, disk group setup parameters and host system setup. All performance information is measured using both Linear and Virtual Storage

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has traditionally published a set of end-to-end MSA performance specifications which feed into HPE Sizer tools which are based on conservative real-world configurations. For consistency, the MSA 2040 performance numbers have been documented in both Benchmark and End-to-End Performance tables. Configuration details are provided for both test scenarios. These numbers are preliminary and subject to change without notice.

VMware Site Recovery Manager(SRM)

Disk tiers are comprised of aggregating 1 or more Disk Groups of similar physical disks. The MSA 2040 supports 3 distinct tiers:

1. A Performance tier with SSDs

2. A Standard SAS tier with Enterprise SAS HDDs 

3. An Archive tier utilizing Midline SAS HDDs.

Prior to GL200 firmware the MSA 2040 operated through manual Tiering, LUN-level tiers are manually created and managed by using dedicated vdisks and volumes. LUN level Tiering requires careful planning such that applications requiring the highest performance be placed on Vdisks utilizing high performance SSD´s. Applications with lower performance requirements can be placed on Vdisks comprised of Enterprise SAS or midline SAS HDDs. Beginning with GL200 or newer firmware, the MSA 2040 now supports sub-LUN tiering and automated data movement between tiers.

The MSA 2040 automated tiering engine moves data between available tiers based on the access characteristics of that data. Frequently accessed “pages” will migrate to the highest available tier delivering maximum I/O´s to the application (Performance Tiering). Another feature to the MSA 2040 tiering engine is Archive Tiering where “cold” or not frequently accessed data can be moved to lower performance tiers. Pages are migrated between tiers automatically such that I/O’s are optimized in real-time.

The Archive Tiering functionality is provided at no charge on the MSA 2040 platform beginning with GL200 or newer firmware. The Performance Tiering capability utilizing a fault tolerant SSD Disk Group is a paid feature and requires the below SKU to enable it.  Creating an SSD virtual disk group for both read and write capabilities requires a Performance Auto Tiering License. Performance Tiering from SAS MDL (Archive Tier) to Enterprise SAS (Standard Tier) drives is provided at no charge.

 

VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) is an extension to VMware vCenter that delivers business-continuity and disaster-recovery solution that helps you plan, test, and execute the recovery of vCenter virtual machines. SRM can discover and manage replicated datastores, and automate migration of inventory from one vCenter to another. Site Recovery Manager integrates with the underlying replication product through a Storage Replication Adapter (SRA). The SRM is available only for linear storage.

HPE MSA 2040 Site Recovery Adapter (SRA)

The MSA 2040 SRA, a free-to-use plugin, is the program that integrates the VMware vCenter SRM with HPE MSA 2040 arrays. It enables full-featured use of the VMware SRM. It is a host-software component installed on a Microsoft Windows Server that enables disaster recovery management (DRM) software on the host to communicate and control certain aspects of the replication feature in storage systems connected to the server. It allows the VMware SRM software to automatically coordinate virtual machine failover and failback between a protected data center and a disaster recovery site by employing a disaster recovery solution called Remote Snap. A perfect combination of the Remote Snap replication and VMware SRM provides an unfailing automated solution for implementing and testing the disaster recovery between sites located across geographies. It enables communication between the HPE MSA Remote Snap replication functionality that is embedded in HPE MSA 2040 systems. Users are required to acquire Remote Snap license for their local and remote HPE MSA 2040 arrays to use the HPE MSA SRA.

Site Recovery Manager Requirements/Dependencies:

  • Requires vSphere 5.1, 5.5
  • Supports SRM 5.1, 5.5 and 5.8
  • Requires HPE MSA 2040 /P2000 SRA 5.8 or later Plug-in (downloadable from hpe.com)
  • SRM works with Remote Snap linear mode
  • Requires purchase of MSA 2040 Remote Snap licenses (one for each site)

vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI)

The vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI) is one of the storage application programming interface (API) sets in vSphere. VAAI is an API storage partners can leverage to enhance performance of virtual machine (VM) management operations by delegating these operations to the storage array. With hardware offload, ESX/ESXi hosts perform certain operations faster and consume less server CPU and memory resources, and also storage port and storage fabric bandwidth. VAAI includes high performance and scalable VM data path primitives.

Storage Hardware Primitives for VAAI

  • Full Copy or Hardware Assisted Move
  • Block Zeroing or Hardware Assisted Zeroing
  • Hardware Assisted Locking or Atomic Test and Set (ATS)
  • UNMAP reclaims space that is no longer on a thinly provisioned VMFS volume

Snapshot and Volume Copy Software for the MSA 2040

Product Features

Data Protection

  • Snapshots create up to 512 point-in-time pictures of data
  • Volume Copies create up to 128 point-in-time copies of data
  • Recovery is instant - revert data from any previous Snapshot or Volume Copy (volume copy is available for both linear and virtual storage with GL220 firmware or later; pre-GL220 firmware volume copy is only available on linear storage).
  • Backup 'snapped' data to disk, virtual tape, or physical tape without a backup window
  • A 64 snapshot license and Volume Copy are included with all MSA 2040 models.
  • Support and updates are desired for bundled software functionalities (such as 64 LTU Snap and/or Volume Copy etc. in the MSA 2040 products) a combination HW + SW support care pack must be purchased.
  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise does not provide warranty assistance for software products included with our base hardware products. This would either be SupportPlus or SupportPlus24. The hardware warranty component of these services is accounted for in the pricing of the SP and SP24 care packs.

HPE MSA Remote Snap Software

  • HPE MSA Remote Snap software is available for both linear and virtual storage with GL220 firmware or later; pre-GL220 firmware remote snap replication is only available on linear storage. HPE MSA Remote Snap Software is array based software that provides remote replication on the HPE MSA 2040 Array products. HPE Remote Snap is a form of asynchronous replication which consists of replication of block-level data from a volume on a local system to a volume that may be on the same system or on a second independent system. This second system may be co-located with the first system or may be located at a remote site.
  • HPE Remote Snap functionality is based on existing Snapshot technology offered by HPE MSA SAN Array products. Snapshots are used to track the data to be replicated as well as to determine the differences in data updated on the master volume, minimizing the amount of data to be transferred.
  • HPE Remote Snap replication technology provides the ability to accomplish key data management and protection capabilities. First, because Remote Snap uses snapshots as the underlying technology it creates multiple local recovery points which can be used for such tasks as to complement daily backups; second, replication provides the ability to access data in a remote site which could be used for dispersed operations; and third but definitely not least important replication allows for business continuance in the event of a failure on the primary site.
  • In order to perform a replication, a snapshot of the volume to be replicated is taken, creating a point-in-time image of the data. This point-in-time image is then replicated to the destination volume by copying the data represented by the snapshot via a transport medium such as TCP/IP (iSCSI) or Fibre Channel. The amount of data transferred is minimized though the use of snapshots whenever possible.

NOTE: One Advanced Data Services (ADS) license per array is required for replication. For example, if you have two MSA arrays performing replication (from Primary system to Remote System), you will need 2 ADS licenses.

 

Product Features

  • Storage based asynchronous snapshot replication
  • Initial copy of data can be performed locally, reducing burden on wide area networks
  • Support of both Ethernet and Fiber Channel interconnects provides flexible options to the application environments. Remote Snap is not supported on SAS models.
  • Snapshot based replication technology means only changed data will be replicated to alternate site
  • Many to 1 replication (up to 4 nodes) - primary use case is to replicate from "many" branch offices to the home office for the purpose of backing up data from the branches
  • Single controller to single controller replication
  • Advanced scheduler provides several options to IT administrators for business continuance
  • Flexible architecture allows remote replication between MSA 2040 and/or P2000 G3 supported arrays. Protects existing investments and enhances business continuity planning objectives.
  • Replication Wizard simplifies the task of setting up and establishing replication pairs from one unified, easy to use GUI.
  • Snapshot based replication enables both local and remote recovery depending on the need. Snapshot replication isolates problems to a specific point in time which can be selected by the administrator. Additionally snapshot replication supports longer distance replication.
  • Multiple relationships provide greater storage flexibility and utilization.
  • Bundled 64 Snapshots and Volume Copy integration provides better efficiencies by combining the management and array technologies to create local copies.
  • Fast application recovery with minimal or no transaction loss
  • Creation of disaster tolerant copies of your critical business data
  • No-single-point-of-failure solution to increase the availability of your customers data
