Overview
The new HP MSA 2040, a high-performance storage array designed for entry-level HP customers desiring 8 and/or 16Gb Fibre Channel,
1 and/or 10GbE iSCSI, or 6Gb/12Gb SAS connectivity with 4 host ports per controller. This next generation MSA 2040 Storage array
provides an excellent value for customers needing performance balanced with price to support initiatives such as consolidation and
virtualization.
The MSA 2040 delivers this performance by offering:
New controller architecture with a new processor
4GB cache per controller
Solid State drives (SSDs)
Up to four (4) host ports per controller
Two new MSA 2040 Controllers:
MSA 2040 SAN Controller
8Gb/16Gb FC connectivity and/or
1GbE/10GbE iSCSI
MSA 2040 SAS Controller
6Gb/12Gb SAS connectivity
The HP MSA 2040 Storage System brings the performance benefits of SSDs to MSA array family customers. This array has been
designed to maximize performance by using high performance drives across all applications sharing the array.
The HP MSA 2040 Storage arrays are positioned to provide an excellent value for customers needing increasing performance to
support initiatives such as consolidation and virtualization.
The HP MSA 2040 Storage ships standard with a license for 64 Snapshots and Volume Copy for increased data protection. There is also
an optional license for 512 snapshots. The HP MSA 2040 can also replicate data between arrays (P2000 G3 and/or MSA 2040 SAN
Model only using FC or iSCSI protocol) with the optional Remote Snap feature.
What's New in the MSA 2000 array family
Introducing a new 1.2 TB SFF 10K Enterprise Hard Drive (E7W47A)

    Maintenance HP Remote Snap software can also be used to solve other business needs. For instance, E-mail servers may need periodic maintenance that can take hours to complete. With remote replication in place, the downtime can be minimal (as long as it takes to bring the remote peer of the primary e- mail server online).
