HP StorageWorks 2000fc G2 Modular Smart Array
Overview
The HP StorageWorks 2000fc G2 Modular Smart Array (MSA2000fc) represents the newest Fibre Channel model of the MSA2000
family (which includes the MSA2000i G2 iSCSI and the MSA2000sa G2 SAS connected models), a new generation of HP storage
arrays specifically designed for entry-level customers and features the very latest in functionality and technology at highly affordable
price points.
The MSA2000fc G2 is a 4 Gb Fibre Channel connected 2U storage area network (SAN) or direct connect solution (OS dependent)
designed for small to medium size departments or remote locations. The controller-less chassis is offered in two models - one comes
standard with twelve Large Form Factor (LFF) 3.5-inch drive bays, the other can accommodate twenty-four Small Form Factor (SFF) 2.5inch drives (common with ProLiant). Both are able to simultaneously support enterprise-class SAS drives and archival-class SATA drives.
The chassis can have one or two MSA2300fc G2 controllers.
The MSA2000fc G2 is all about the ability to choose the proper configuration to fit individual needs. The user can opt for the 24drive bay SFF chassis for the highest spindle counts in the most dense form factor, or go for the 12 drive bay LFF model to max out
total capacity. Choose a single controller unit for low initial cost with the ability to upgrade later; or decide on a model with dual
controllers for the most demanding entry-level situations. Capacity can easily be added when needed by attaching additional drive
enclosures. Maximum capacity ranges with LFF drives up to 27 TB SAS or 60 TB SATA with the addition of the maximum number of
drive enclosures. Configurations utilizing the SFF drive chassis and the maximum number of drive enclosures can grow to 29.7 TB of
SAS or 24.7 TB of SATA with a total of ninety-nine drives. The MSA2000fc G2 has been fully tested up to 64 hosts. NOTE: There
are no additional hidden charges, licenses or fees as you add enclosures or hosts and users.
The new Fibre Channel G2 model has grown in other aspects too. Optional snapshot capability has been increased to 255 snaps
on the G2 models, and LUN support has grown up to 512 total volumes in a Dual Controller system. The MSA2000fc G2 also adds
support for HP-UX, OpenVMS, Windows, and Linux on powerful Integrity servers.
The MSA2000fc G2 is a member of HP StorageWorks Modular Smart Array offerings, delivering simple and affordable storage
technology to meet today's demanding and growing IT needs. These storage solutions offer excellent price/performance and
availability features for direct attach configurations (depending on OS), clusters, workgroups and entry-level SAN environments. Each
solution is designed to be easy to deploy, to be secure, along with low management costs, while driving rapid return on investment.

port SAS & SATA drives in a single-domain MSA70. This support allows current
owners of MSA70s to migrate their single port drives (in their MSA70 only, not
into the array head) to be attached to an MSA2300fc. They can only cascade
to another single I/O MSA70. This is not a data-in-place transition.
SAS drive performance can be approximately 30% greater than SATA
performance on sequential host I/O. SAS performance excels in sequential
lower latency response time and random I/O per second transaction
performance due to higher rpm disk speeds yielding lower seek times. SAS
drive random performance is generally twice that of SATA drives.
NOTE: MSA2 3.5-inch Large Form Factor (LFF) drives are for use only in the
MSA2000 family. The 2.5-inch Small Form Factor (SFF) drives are supported
only with the MSA2300fc G2 controller and are common with and are the
same part numbers as the ProLiant optional 2.5-inch drives.
Optional Disk enclosures
Just as the user has a choice of chassis for the array head (LFF and SFF drive
bays), so also do they have a choice of expansion disk enclosures
accommodating either drive size. (NOTE: these are not supported as part of a
NEBS-certified with the MSA Carrier Grade Chassis.)
MSA2000 3.5-inch drive enclosure. This 2U unit has twelve LFF (3.5-inch)
drive bays and accepts for MSA2 dual-ported SAS and SATA drives. One
model (AJ749A) has a single I/O module that matches with a single controller
array head, giving a single path to the drives. The second model (AJ750A)
comes standard with two I/O modules installed, required when paired with a
dual controller array head, giving two paths to the drives for higher availability.
This 3.5-inch drive enclosure can be attached to either the MSA2312fc
G2 or MSA2324fc G2 array head. In addition it continues to support
the MSA2000i and MSA2000sa.
Each model ships standard with two .6m SAS to SAS cables for
cascading to other MSA2000 drive enclosures
For connection to either form-factor MSA2300fc array head, miniSAS to
SAS cable(s) must be purchased.
The single I/O model can be upgraded to a dual model with the
purchase of an additional MSA2000 Drive Enclosure I/O module
(AJ751A). No cable is included with this upgrade.
Up to four MSA2000 3.5-inch enclosures can be attached to an
MSA2300fc G2 controller in the array head.
MSA70 2.5-inch drive enclosure. This 2U storage enclosure (418800-B21) is
designed to support twenty five ProLiant 2.5-inch Universal form factor (SFF)
SAS or SATA hard drives. It ships standard with a single I/O module installed.
This 2.5-inch drive enclosure can only be attached to an MSA2324fc
G2 controller (SFF) array head. It can also be attached to the
MSA2312fc (LFF) or the MSA2000i G2 or MSA2000sa G2 models.
The latest firmware is required.
The MSA70 enclosure ships with a single .5m miniSAS to miniSAS
cable.
To support a dual controller MSA2124fc G2 array head, the user needs
to purchase and install an MSA70 Dual Domain I/O Module
(AG779A). This option ships standard with an additional .5m miniSAS
to miniSAS cable.
Up to three MSA70s may be attached to the array head, given total
support for 99 SFF drives.

Scalability
The MSA2300fc G2 controller is designed to allow an installation to begin
with smaller capacity and be able to grow gradually as needed. The flexibility
of SAS or SATA drive 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 5.4 TB SAS or 12 TB
SATA, expandable to 27 TB SAS or 60 TB SATA with the addition of a
maximum of four MSA2000 3.5-inch Drive Enclosures.
Small Form Factor configurations can scale from 7.2 TB SAS or 6 TB
SATA. With the addition of three MSA70 JBODs, the MSA2324fc G2
can support 29.7 TB SAS or 24.7 TB SATA.
Users may configure a 24-drive MSA2324fc G2 SFF array head with
up to three 12-drive LFF MSA2000 3.5-inch disk enclosures. This is an
excellent method for a configuration that support fast SFF enterprise-class
SAS drives in the array head, combined with economical LFF drives
staged for archival purposes, all in the same array.
Qualification of larger capacity drives is ongoing.
LUNs
The MSA2000 family of arrays supports 512 LUNs (total volumes in a dual
controller system) and LUN sizes up to 16 TB. The array supports expansion
and deletion of any LUN.
RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10,
In addition to the usual RAID levels, the MSA2000 family features several
50
important additional levels. RAID 6 is 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. It is the most popular
of the multiple RAID levels, allowing large arrays with high performance in most
cases and superior 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
DA - 13187
Performance numbers are a guideline as established by tests using RAW I/O
in an Operating System Agnostic test lab environment. A total of 96 72GB
15K SAS drives were used in a dual controller configuration of eight 12 Disk
vdisks, eight 806 GB volumes, and two volumes per host. Four hosts directly
attached to the MSA2000fc G2 were used in this test configuration (results
cannot be expected with a single host). Results were achieved in Sequential
Writes with 256K blocks; all random tests were based on 8K block sizes.
NOTE: Number and type of applications, drive type and number of drives,
operating system used, and the number of hosts will affect overall performance.

HP StorageWorks Storage Mirroring Software provides host-based, continuous replication for customers
Mirroring
seeking a low-cost alternative to fabric or array-based replication. Patented replication and failover
technology continuously captures byte-level data changes as they happen and replicates those changes to
one or more target servers at any location without geographic limitations. By replicating only the bytes
that change, Storage Mirroring Software uses the absolute minimum bandwidth on your existing LAN or
WAN to replicate your data. Storage Mirroring also provides server failover where a production server
can automatically be 'replaced' by the storage mirroring server in the event of failure. Couple Storage
Mirroring with MSA2000 Snapshots and/or Volume Copy to achieve an Enterprise class data protection
strategy creating different data recovery points using continuous data protection with Storage Mirroring
and point-in-time data protection with Snapshots and/or Volume Copy.
Storage Mirroring Software supports:
Any DAS, NAS, and SAN storage device.
Any Windows or Linux ProLiant server including all ML, DL, and BL platforms
