HP 600 Modular Disk System
Overview
Finding it difficult to keep up with the growth in unstructured data? Looking for a cost-effective high capacity storage option?
With the HP 600 Modular Disk System, HP extends and redefines direct-attached storage for BladeSystem servers, combining the
simplicity and cost effectiveness of direct-attached storage without sacrificing flexibility or performance.
Use the MDS600 as part of a straight-forward in-rack 3 Gb/s SAS implementation that delivers high-density, low-cost external zoned
direct attach storage for HP BladeSystem servers. Easily configure storage on the fly with easy to use management software.
The MDS600 can also be directly connected to ProLiant DL and ML servers using the Smart Array P212, P411, and P812 Controller
using a standard 2M SAS cable; Single Domain only. Up to six MDS600 storage devices can be supported off a single BladeSystem
enclosure for up to 1260 TB of capacity. End-to-end 3 Gb/s SAS connectivity enables a high performance storage solution using an
HP Smart Array P700m controller, 3Gb SAS BL switches, and the MDS600. 6 Gb/s host connectivity enables higher performance,
eases configuration/deployment and broadens supported features of an MDS600 using HP Smart Array P711m controller and 6Gb
SAS BL switches.

Features and Benefits
Key Features
High density, low cost SAS
storage for BladeSystem
servers
70 LFF Universal SAS or SATA drives in 5U
Two pull-out drive drawers support hot plug large form factor dual-ported SAS or SATA drives in
just 5U of rack space
Each pull-out drive drawer is supported by a redundant set of hot plug power supplies and
redundant hot plug fans.
Straight forward SAS architecture provides zoned direct attach storage for BladeSystem servers; just
a Smart Array P700m controller in the blade server, a dual or single 3Gb SAS BL switches in the
chassis connected to an MDS600.
Build BladeSystem server
storage on the fly
MDS600 drive bays are assigned or 'zoned' to individual blade bays using SAS 2.0 zoning
capabilities. Use the Virtual SAS Manager (VSM) in the 3Gb SAS BL switch to dynamically assign
up to 100 drives to specific BladeSystem servers, without complex configuration or re-cabling.
Drives zoned to each server appear as local storage to that server. This allows complete flexibility
to reconfigure quickly and easily without moving cables
With zoned direct attached storage capabilities; server administrators can build local storage on
the fly according to their configuration requirements.
Quickly deploy and expand capacity by configuring additional drive bays to a P700m Smart Array
Controller without moving a single cable.
High performance 6 Gb/s
SAS connectivity to
external storage
To enhance performance even further, the Smart Array P711m controller installed in the blade
server provides 1 GB Flash -backed write cache (FBWC).
Supports higher performance between the 6G SAS Switch and MDS600 by attaching 2 SAS cables
from any quad of 6G SAS Switch ports to the 2 ports on the MDS600 IO module to create an 8x
wide SAS port.
High Performance Smart Array P212 256MB BBWC, P411 256MB\512MB BBWC, and P812
1GB BBWC available for ProLiant DL, ML, and SL servers.
Directly connect to
ProLiant DL, ML, and SL
servers
Directly connect the Smart Array P212, P411, or P812 Controller to SAS Connector 1 on the
MDS600 Primary IO module(s) using a 2m SAS cables (8x wide SAS is not supported).
Connect one or two ProLiant servers to the MDS600 drawers using one or two Smart Array P212,
P411, and\or P812 controllers. NOTE: Maximum configuration with the P812 and MDS600 is 2
Drawers and 70 drives
No Zoning. The Smart Array controller sees all 35 drive bays in the MDS600 drive drawer.
The Smart Array P812 with firmware 3.50 or greater supports MDS600 with firmware 2.66 or
greater. P812 firmware 3.50 or greater has the ability to update the MDS600 firmware with a
minimum version of 2.60 to the latest version.
P212, P411, and P812 only supports single domain with the MDS600.
MDS600 does not support cascading SAS IO modules.
HP reliability
Familiar Smart Array technology of the Smart Array Controllers enables support for RAID levels 0,
1, 1+0, 5, RAID 6, RAID 50 (requires P711m) & RAID 60 (requires 711m ).
RAID 50: Protects against failure of one drive (and failure of particular multiple drives).
RAID 50 is a nested RAID method that uses RAID 0 striping across RAID 5 arrays. RAID 50
tolerates one drive failure in each spanned array without loss of data. RAID 50 requires less
rebuild time than single RAID 5 arrays RAID 50 requires a minimum of six drives. Requires
P711m.
RAID 60: Allows administrators to split the RAID 6 storage across multiple external boxes.
RAID 60 requires a minimum of eight drives. RAID 60 is a nested RAID method that uses

HP 600 Modular Disk System
Features and Benefits
RAID 0 block-level striping across multiple RAID 6 arrays with dual distributed parity. With
the inclusion of dual parity, RAID 60 will tolerate the failure of two disks in each spanned
array without loss of data. Requires P711m.
Advanced Data Guarding (RAID 6):. 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.
Distributed Data Guarding (RAID 5): This allocates parity data across multiple drives and
allows simultaneous write operations. It is recommended for up to 14 hard drives.
Receive pre-failure alerts with HP SIM. When drives installed in an MDS600 are used in
conjunction with the Smart Array Controller and Systems Insight Manager, the Smart Array
firmware in HP hard drives enables extensive fault prediction capabilities. If potential problems
develop in one of the drives, the Smart Array Controller, Systems Insight Manager and/or Smart
hard disk drive will send a pre-failure alert so you can have the drive replaced, before it fails,
under warranty.

5U, 70 Large Form Factor Universal SAS or SATA drive bays
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) enterprise-class drives designed for high volume
24x7 usage. Serial-ATA (SATA) are usually reserved for archival of data as
they are both relatively inexpensive and are available in very large capacities.
The MDS600 can accommodate both SAS and SATA drives within the same
enclosure. SAS drive performance can be approximately 30% greater than
SATA performance on sequential host IO. SAS performance excels in
sequential lower latency response time and random IO per second
transaction performance due to higher rpm disk speeds yielding lower seek
times.
Scalability
Up to 70 SAS or SATA 3.5" hot plug hard drives per MDS600
A single BladeSystem enclosure supports up to six MDS600's externally.
RAID is provided by the Smart Array P711m, P700m, P212, P411, or P812

These days, you need to get the most out of your storage investment-you can't afford not to. When you buy HP storage products and
solutions, it's also a good time to think about what levels of service and support you may need. To help take the worry out of
deploying, designing, maintaining, and managing your environment, we've designed a portfolio of service options that are as:

Protect your business beyond the warranty
When it comes to robustness and reliability, standard warranties on today's computing equipment have matured just as the
technologies have matured. Good news on some fronts-but also a source of potential problems and subsequent consequences that
come from depending on standard warranties alone. Standard warranty protects against product defects and some causes of
downtime- but not the business. By using a standard approach to warranty uplifts, such as HP Care Pack Services, you can reduce
downtime risks and be more certain of operational consistency for both mission-critical and standard business computing. Simply
put, HP Care Pack Services normalize the warranty of combined products - helping you proactively guard against unplanned
downtime.
Extending warranties with HP Care Pack Services
For cost-effective upgrading or extending your standard warranty, HP Care Pack Services offer a suite of standard reactive hardware
and software support services that are sold separately, or combined as with our Support Plus and Support Plus 24 services. The
portfolio also provides a combination of proactive and reactive services, such as Proactive 24 Service and Critical Service. In
addition, with HP Proactive Select we offer an innovative approach to service delivery that gives you the flexibility to acquire the
specific proactive services you need today, then add services as your needs evolve. HP Proactive Select offers a broad set of
technical or per-event type service options - including server, storage, and network, SAN device, and software, environment,
installation and education services. Services that you can mix and match depending on your specific requirements, from preliminary
planning and equipment delivery to installation, configuration, integration, and testing, through every level of ongoing support. Our
HP Care Pack packaged services for Storage assures help when you need it most. And for many products, post-warranty HP Care
Pack Services are available when your original warranty has expired.

Technical Specifications
NOTE: HP has not tested or validated the MDS600 with any third-party racks. Before installing the MDS600 in a third-party rack, be
sure to properly scope the limitations of the rack. Before proceeding with the installation, consider the following:
You must fully understand the static and dynamic load carrying capacity of the rack and be sure that it can accommodate the
weight of the MDS600.
You must install a 1U tray (part no 501037-B21 ) beneath the MDS600 to ensure proper support.
Be sure sufficient clearance exists for cabling, installation and removal of the enclosure, actuation of the rack doors, and full
articulation of the drive drawers
