HP MSA 2040 Storage
The latest MSA array features two high-performance controllers with support for the industry’s latest Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and SAS host interfaces. The MSA 2040 delivers mid-market features to entry SAN customers wanting to utilize the latest spinning or solid state drive technologies. Simple to deploy and simple to manage.

Changing storage requirements have raised the bar for entry shared storage arrays. The MSA 2040 uniquely addresses HP ProLiant and BladeSystem server customers’ shared storage and data protection needs, reducing total cost of ownership while dramatically increasing performance and availability utilizing technologies such as SSDs, Self-Encrypted Drives (SEDs), and a host on advanced data services previously only available on mid-range and enterprise disk arrays.

The HP MSA 2040 Storage arrays are positioned to provide an excellent value for customers needing increased performance to support initiatives such as consolidation and virtualization. The MSA 2040 delivers this performance by leveraging a new, fourth generation, controller architecture with more processing resources, 4 GB cache per controller and four host ports per controller standard. The controller architecture delivers incredible performance and allows users to extract full benefits from the latest storage technologies such as SSDs.

Product key benefits

Simple: Flexible architecture. Easy to setup. Easy to manage

  • Choice of 8 Gb/16 Gb FC, 1GbE/10GbE iSCSI, and 6 Gb/12 Gb SAS to match the configuration needs of your SAN infrastructure.
  • Deploy single or dual controllers depending on high-availability and budgetary requirements.
  • Select large or small form factor disk enclosures with choice of high-performance SSDs, SEDs, Enterprise-class SAS or SAS Midline drives based on application, performance, and budgetary requirements. Drive types may be mixed in any enclosure.
  • Integrated setup and management tools for MSA are easy to manage for ProLiant/ BladeSystem IT managers.

Fast: The MSA 2040 set new standards for $/IOPS in entry SAN, up to 4X today’s competition

  • High-performance controller architecture delivering up to 4X the performance of today’s other entry-level SAN arrays
  • MSA 2040 4-port controller architecture with 4 GB cache supporting the latest FC, iSCSI & SAS interfaces translates into better application response times and the ability to support more virtualized workloads.
  • SSD support with integrated lifecycle management and new virtualized data services to help unlock flash capabilities in your environment. Utilizing the latest SSDs, you will see improved application performance and reduces operating costs by reducing foot prints and power consumption.

Future proof: 2X the bandwidth and the MSA 2040 was the first entry SAN with 16 Gb FC and 12 Gb SAS

  • Converged SAN Controller ports are upgradeable by SFPs to 8 Gb/16 Gb FC, and/or 1GbE/10GbE iSCSI. The MSA 2040 SAS controller supports 6 Gb or 12 Gb SAS facilitating ultra-high performance with or without required dedicated SAN infrastructure.
  • 4th generation of MSA’s unique Data-in-Place upgrades provides unmatched investment protection during generational upgrades within the MSA family. This eliminates painful data migrations required by our competitors.

Virtualization features

The 4th generation of MSA provides support for a powerful set of data services enabled with a new virtualized array system architecture. Existing MSA 2040 customers have access to these new features via a firmware upgrade. Features supported in virtualization firmware are:

  • Thin Provisioning. This feature allows storage allocation of physical storage resources only once they are consumed by an application.
  • SSD Read Cache. Improves random read performance by allowing an SSD to be utilized as an extension of the MSA 2040 controller cache.
  • Automated Tiering (with Performance1 and Archive Tiering). Utilizing a real-time I/O engine to intelligently position data on the most appropriate “tier” of storage. For customers leveraging MSA’s Performance tiering capacities1 , users will see improved application response times on both read and write activities for frequently accessed data and better utilization of storage resources through the ability to move data which has not been accessed for long periods of time off to more cost effective Midline SAS HDDs (Archive Tiering).
  • Virtualized Snapshot services. Created specifically for MSA’s virtualized storage architecture, the MSA 2040 will be able to utilize Redirect-on-Write technology to provide better snapshot performance and the ability to create more complex snapshots with simplified snapshot management.
  • New Web User Interface. The new virtualized array architecture also comes with a powerful, embedded Storage Management Utility which will make setup and management of the MSA 2040 and these new features a breeze. Users familiar with MSA’s previous Web UI will have the option to continue on or take advantage of the new UI.
  • Wide Striping. By leveraging virtualized storage “pools,” MSA 2040 users can leverage wide striping technology to simplify volume expansion and to facilitate full utilization of all resources allocated to a specific volume.
