    HP 19 inch racks. A basic P9500 disk array is a control rack (Rack- 00) that contains a controller chassis and two drive chassis (factory designation DKU).

  • Page 7: Controller Chassis

    The following sections provide descriptions and illustrations of the P9500 disk array and its components. Figure 1 P9500 disk array NOTE: Each Rack is 600mm wide without side covers. Add 5mm to each end of entire assembly for each side cover. Controller chassis The controller chassis (factory designation DKC) includes the logical components, memory, disk drive interfaces, and host interfaces.

    the rack because it is the heavier of the two units. If a system has two SVPs, both SVPs are mounted in controller chassis #0. The following illustration shows the locations of the components in the controller chassis. The controller chassis is described in more detail in “System components”...

  • Page 9: Features

    Figure 3 Disk Unit Features This section describes the main features of the P9500 disk array. Scalability The P9500 disk array is highly scalable and can be configured in several ways as needed to meet customer requirements: The minimum configuration is a single rack containing one controller chassis and two drive chassis.

  • Page 10: High Performance

    Figure 4 Example P9500 disk array configurations In addition to the number of disk drives, the system can be configured with disk drives of different capacities and speeds, varying numbers of CHAs and DKAs, and varying cache capacities, as follows: Two to six CHAs (each is a pair of boards).

  • Page 11: Connectivity

    The required features for the Remote Web Console computer include operating system, available disk space, screen resolution, CD drive, network connection, USB port, CPU, memory, browser, Flash, and Java environment. These features are described in Chapter 1 of the HP XP P9000 Remote Web Console User Guide.

    generates less heat, the fan speed is reduced, saving energy and reducing the noise level of the system. When the disk array is in standby mode, the disk drives spin down and the controller and drive chassis use significantly less power. For example, a system that consumes 100 amps during normal operation, uses only 70 amps while in standby mode.

  • Page 13: Software Features And Functions

    The P9500 disk array provides advanced software features and functions that increase data accessibility and deliver enterprise wide coverage of online data copy/relocation, data access/protection, and storage resource management. HP software products and solutions provide a full set of industry leading copy, availability, resource management, and exchange software to support business continuity, database backup and restore, application testing, and data mining.

    Table 4 Performance management features and functions Feature Description Cache Residency Cache Residency locks and unlocks data into the cache to optimize access to the most frequently used data. It makes data from specific logical units resident in a cache, making all data accesses become cache hits.

    RAID Manager On open systems, performs various functions, including data replication and data protection operations by issuing commands from the host to the HP disk arrays. The RAID Manager software supports scripting and provides failover and mutual hot standby functionality in cooperation with host failover products.

    2 Functional and operational characteristics System architecture overview This section briefly describes the architecture of the P9500 disk array. Hardware architecture The basic system architecture is shown in the following diagram. Figure 5 P9500 architecture overview The system consists of two main hardware assemblies: A controller chassis that contains the logic and processing components A drive chassis that contains the disk drives or solid state drives.

    RAID1 option can be ideal for workloads with low cache hit ratios. NOTE: When configuring RAID1 (4D+4D), HP recommends that both RAID1 (2D+2D) groups within a RAID1 (4D+4D) group be configured under the same DKA pair. Figure 6 Sample RAID1 2D + 2D layout RAID5.

  • Page 19: Sequential Data Striping

    Figure 7 Sample RAID5 3D + 1P layout (data plus parity stripe) RAID6. A RAID6 array group consists of eight data drives (6D+2P). The data is written across the eight drives in a stripe that has six data chunks and two parity chunks. Each chunk contains either eight logical tracks (mainframe) or 768 logical blocks (open).

    Figure 8 LDEV striping across 2 RAID5 (7D+1P) array groups Figure 9 LDEV striping across 4 RAID5 (7D+1P) array groups All data drives and device emulation types are supported for LDEV striping. LDEV striping can be used in combination with all P9500 data management functions. CU Images, LVIs, and Logical Units This section provides information about control unit images, logical volume images, and logical units.
