Designed and Engineered to Provide High Capacity and Reliable Secure Storage
HPE Server Midline Hard Drives are ideal for the growing volume of digital content, bulk data storage, cloud and web infrastructure environments. Broad portfolio of optimized solutions provide up to 12 TB of storage, and growing in a single device. Rotational Vibration Sensors deliver enhanced rotational vibration tolerance that provides enterprise class reliability in midline drives. Available in 2.5-inch Small Form Factor (SFF) and 3.5-inch Large Form Factor (LFF) in a wide variety of capacity points.
Although hard drives are sealed, they have air inside. Air can create turbulence-induced risk vibrations which can limit the storage density of HDDs. Newer helium-filled drives virtually eliminate turbulence because helium is 1/7th as dense as air. This lower density allows the read/write mechanism to spin more easily and precisely, with less drag. Less internal turbulence means the drive platters can be closer together, allowing more platters and increasing the capacity potential in the same space. Less turbulence also means helium drives tend to use less power, and run cooler and quieter.
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is the logical evolution of SCSI including its long-established software advantage and the serial physical connection interface. With enterprise storage requirements escalating and becoming more complex factors such as larger capacity greater density security scalability and accessibility are more critical than ever. Enterprise data centers must be online all the time fulfill requests from numerous users simultaneously allow for constant growth and expansion and be maintained while in operation. Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) meets all these demands while providing the highest performance.
HPE MSA 2042 Storage (LFF)
The MSA 2042 further drives the MSA 2040 family into the world of flash acceleration with a new set of MSA models which includes 800GB of flash capacity in all SFF and LFF configurations. In addition to including 2x400GB Mixed Use SSDs in the base configuration, the MSA 2042 also includes a rich set of software features as standard including 512 Snapshots, Remote Replication and Performance Tiering capabilities, all at a very attractive price compared to other hybrid configurations. The 800GB of SSD capacity can be used as Read Cache or as a start to building a fully tiered configuration. With the inclusion of the Advanced Data Services SW License, customers can choose how to best utilize these SSDs to provide the optimal flash acceleration for their performance hungry applications. Both Read Cache and Performance Tiering utilize a real-time tiering algorithm which works without user intervention to place the most accessed data on the fastest medium at the right time. The MSA 2042 will dynamically move hot pages up to SSD for flash acceleration and move cooler, more stagnant data back down to spinning media as workloads change in real time hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and week-to-week. All done hands free and without any management overhead from the IT manager.
