The Smart Array
Advantage
Key Features
HP's innovative design and integration work of the Smart Array family of products creates customer value
that is unmatched in the industry. Use of Smart Array products across multiple applications results in a
much lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than any other server storage RAID product. The HP Smart
Array family brings an unparalleled return on investment through:
Data Compatibility among all models of Smart Array controllers allows simple and easy upgrades any
time needs for higher performance, capacity, and availability increase. Even successive generations of
Smart Array controllers understand the data format of other Smart Array Controllers.
Consistent Configuration and Management Tools.
Tools All Smart Array products utilize a standard set of
management and utility software. These tools minimize Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by reducing
training requirements and technical expertise necessary to install and maintain the HP server storage.
Universal Hard Drive form factor is for use across multiple HP servers, disk enclosures and storage
systems. With compatibility across many enterprise platforms, you are free to deploy and re-deploy these
drives to quickly deliver increased storage capacity, migrate data between systems, and easily manage
spare drives.
Pre-Failure Warranty means HP Insight Manager not only reports when a drive is going to fail but allows
replacement of failing drives prior to actual failure. For complete details, consult the HP Support Center
or refer to your HP Server documentation.
Seamless upgrades from past generations and upgrades to next generation HP high performance
and high capacity Serial Attached SCSI Smart Array controllers.
3G SAS (6G SAS Capable) technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth and
contains full compatibility with 1.5G SATA (3G SATA Capable) technology.
x8 5G PCI Express 2.0 host interface technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth
up to 5 GB/s maximum bandwidth.
Addition of the battery backed cache upgrade enables BBWC RAID 5, Capacity Expansion, RAID
migration, and Stripe Size Migration. Additionally, Smart Array Advanced Pack license key enables
RAID 6 (ADG), 6+0, Advanced Capacity Expansion, Mirror Splitting and Recombining in Offline
Mode, Drive Erase, Performance Optimization-Degraded Reads and Read Coalescing (VOD)
Mix-and-match SAS and SATA hard drives, lets you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your
computing environment.
Support for > 2 TB in a single logical drive.
Support for HP StorageWorks SAS tape and tape automation products.
Software consistency among all Smart Array family products: Array Configuration Utility (ACU),
Option ROM Configuration for Arrays (ORCA), Systems Insight Manager, Array Diagnostic Utility
(ADU) and SmartStart. Some of these features are not available with ProLiant 100 series platforms.
The SA-P212 controller supports up to 54 drives.
Low-profile PCI Express form factor - ships with a full size bracket for deployment in either a lowprofile or full sized slot

Native Command
Queuing
Native Command Queuing (NCQ) is a technology designed to increase performance of SATA hard disk
drives by allowing the individual hard disk to internally optimize the order in which received read and
write commands are executed. This can reduce the amount of unnecessary going back-and-forth on the
drive's heads, resulting in increased performance for workloads where multiple simultaneous read/write
requests are outstanding, most often occurring in server or storage-type applications. Without NCQ the
drive has to process and complete one command at a time. For NCQ to be enabled, it must be
supported and turned on in the controller and in the hard drive itself.
NOTE: Please see the SATA Hard Drive QuickSpecs for specific SATA hard drive capacities that support
NCQ: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11940_div/11940_div.html
Capacity
Given the increasing need for high performance and rapid capacity expansion, the SA-P212 offers:
Up to 6TB of total storage with 6 x 1TB SATA MDL hard drives (3.5")
NOTE: Support for greater than 2TB in a single logical drive. Additional capacity up to 180 with
an expander
Up to 1.168TB of total storage with 8 x 146GB SFF SAS hard drives

Pre-Failure Warranty
Fault Prevention
The following features offer detection of possible failures before they occur, allowing preventive action to
be taken:
S.M.A.R.T.: Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology first developed at HP detects
possible hard disk failure before it occurs, allowing replacement of the component before failure
occurs.
Drive Parameter Tracking monitors drive operational parameters, predicting failure and notifying
the administrator.
Dynamic Sector Repairing continually performs background surface scans on the hard disk drives
during inactive periods and automatically remaps bad sectors, ensuring data integrity.
Smart Array Cache Tracking monitors integrity of controller cache, allowing pre-failure
preventative maintenance.
Fault Tolerance
Keeps data available and server running while a failed drive is being replaced; several fault
tolerance configurations are supported including:
RAID 6 with ADG (Advanced Data Guarding): This is the highest level of fault tolerance. It
allocates two sets of parity data across drives and allows simultaneous write operations. This level
of fault tolerance can withstand two simultaneous drive failures without downtime or data loss.
RAID 6+0:
6+0 Supported with min of 8 drives, but would have 4 available. Target benefit is to split
RAID across the external boxes.
NOTE: RAID 6, 6+0 is available only with the minimum of 256MB, Battery Kit, and Smart Array
Advanced Pack License Key option upgrades.
RAID 5 (Distributed Data Guarding): This allocates one set of parity data across drives and allows
simultaneous write operations. This level of fault tolerance can withstand a single drive failure
without downtime or data loss.
NOTE: RAID 5 is available with the 256MB & Battery Kit upgrade option.
RAID 5+0:
5+0 This is a RAID 0 array striped across 5 elements. Combines the straight block-level
striping of RAID 0 with the distributed parity of RAID 5.
RAID 1, 1+0 (Drive Mirroring): This allocates half of the drive array to data and the other half to
mirrored data, providing two copies of every file. It is a high-performance RAID.

Fault Recovery
Minimizes downtime, reconstructs data, and facilitates a quick recovery from drive failure
On-Line Spares: There is no limit to the number of spare drives that can be installed prior to drive
failure. If a failure occurs, recovery begins with an On-Line Spare and data is reconstructed
automatically.
DRAM ECC corrects against single bit data and address corruption.
Battery-backed write cache upgrade provides for up to three days of battery power for data cache
retention. The data backup duration could be extended anytime the server's auxiliary power is
available during system power down.
Ease of Use
Consistency and Upgradeability make the Smart Array family unique in the industry:

Software Suite
All Smart Array products share a common set of configuration, management and diagnostic tools,
including Array Configuration Utility (ACU), Array Diagnostic Utility (ADU), and Systems Insight
Manager. This software consistency of tools reduces the cost of training for each successive generation
of product and takes much of the guesswork out of troubleshooting field problems. These tools lower the
total cost of ownership by reducing training and technical expertise necessary to install and maintain HP
server storage.
