HP MSA P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array Systems
Overview
Hewlett Packard's MSA P2000 Family of storage arrays features P2000 G3 arrays with the latest 8 Gb Fibre Channel, 6 Gb SAS, 10GbE
iSCSI connected models, and an iSCSI model with four 1 Gb iSCSI ports per controller. The arrays are designed for entry-level customers
and feature the latest in functionality and host-connect technology while offering excellent price/performance. They are ideal for
companies with small budgets or limited IT expertise, and also larger companies with departmental or remote requirements. Each
solution is designed to be easy to deploy, to be secure, along with low management costs, while driving rapid return on investment
through efficient storage consolidation.
The MSA P2000 G3 arrays are 2U storage area network (SAN) or direct connect solutions (OS and protocol dependent) offering a choice
of five controllers - two FC, one SAS, one 10GbE iSCSI and the newest model features a four port 1 Gb iSCSI. The first Fibre Channel
controller is a high-performance, 8 Gb dual port model. The second offering is a unique dual-purpose Combo controller with two 8 Gb
Fibre Channel ports with the addition of two 1GbE iSCSI ports. The third controller choice is 6Gb SAS with four ports per controller.
There is also the addition of a two port 10 Gb iSCSI, while the latest controller introduction features four 1 Gb iSCSI ports per controller.
Whatever the situation calls for, the P2000 G3 line-up has the right solution.
The dual-protocol MSA P2000 G3 MSA FC/iSCSI Combo Controller gives exceptional flexibility. The 8 Gb FC ports support a full FC SAN
while the two 1GbE iSCSI ports can serve two purposes. With this combination you can economically share the array storage resource
with a smaller department accessing it over iSCSI or enable the new optional Remote Snap functionality over iSCSI protocol (also
available over FC).
The MSA P2000 G3 SAS is the follow-on product to the MSA2000sa G2, adding the latest 6 Gb SAS technology to the four host ports per
controller. The P2000 G3 SAS array is designed for directly attaching up to four dual-path or eight single path rack servers. SAS array
support for BladeSystems utilizes the HP 6 Gb SAS BL Switch.
The MSA P2000 G3 10GbE iSCSI brings the very latest in high-performance host connection with technology generally found only in
higher priced arrays. The bandwidth it provides in conjunction with server consolidation is highly advantageous in shared storage
configurations. Array connection to 10GbE switches that are in turn connected to 1GbE NICs is commonplace. Directly attached server
support requires the server units to have 10GbE NICs.
Rounding out the controller choices is the MSA P2000 G3 iSCSI controller featuring four 1Gb iSCSI Ethernet ports, double the number of
the G2 model. This allows an array that keeps the price of the components, particularly the interconnects, low while markedly
increasing the performance capabilities.
All MSA P2000 G3 models can be equipped with single or dual controllers, feature the same scalability, and offer 6 Gb SAS back-end
transmission speed to drives and JBODs. Significant data protection advances are delivered by the all P2000 G3 arrays. All G3 units
come STANDARD with sixty-four snapshot capability at no extra cost and there is an option for the G3 series of five hundred and twelve
snapshots. Volume Copy (clone) also comes standard. In a further move to protect the user's data, optional Remote Snap (replication)
capability is offered on the FC, FC/iSCSI, and both iSCSI versions.
All MSA P2000 G3 models support hot plug replacement of redundant controllers, fans, power supplies, and I/O modules. Hot add of
expansion enclosures is also supported.
The controller-less MSA P2000 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) 2.5-inch drives. Both are able to simultaneously support
enterprise-class SAS drives, SAS Midline, and archival-class SATA Midline drives. Either chassis can have one or two matching P2000 G3
controllers (same protocol) and are available with AC or DC power Supplies.
The HP modular approach to entry level SAN solutions enables incremental customer purchases, allowing the array to grow as needs
grow, thus allowing a maximum return on investment. 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. There are no unexpected additional
charges, licenses or fees as you add enclosures or hosts and users.

Key Features
The HP P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array family encompasses five controllers, each featuring different protocols or combination of
protocols to match the exact needs of the user.
P2000 G3 FC/iSCSI Combo MSA controller: this unique controller offers both 8 Gb Fibre Channel and 1 GbE iSCSI functionalities
built into a single array controller. This allows customers to enable storage needing high performance thru the FC ports while
leveraging their SAN investment by sharing the array resources with smaller departments through low-cost iSCSI. It also
enables optional Remote Snap (replication) for data protection.
P2000 G3 FC MSA controller: Dual 8 Gb Fibre Channel host ports per controller give high performance with a mature topology
and is compatible with the largest installed base of SAN users.
P2000 G3 10GbE iSCSI MSA controller: HP was the first of the major modular array manufacturers that brought a high
performance dual-ported 10GbE iSCSI solution to the entry level segment. Ideal for those who want to utilize cost-effective
Ethernet as their infrastructure without sacrificing access time to their data. Now supports Remote Snap (replication).
P2000 G3 SAS MSA controller: the P2000 G3 SAS model gives fast 6 Gb transmission rates with low cost SAS connections. Four
host ports per controller support a highly efficient direct connect configuration.
P2000 G3 iSCSI MSA controller offers four 1 Gb iSCSI ports utilizes the popular Ethernet infrastructure with its low cost and ease
of management, while the additional ports assure increased performance over the previous generation. Now supports Remote
Snap (replication).
All P2000 G3 models offer a common set of valuable features:
Ease of management featuring browser-based out-of-band access. This allows a department or small company to effectively
handle growing storage requirements, with the aid of an intuitive GUI to administer the unit with a minimum of complexity. Ideal
for local or remote installations.
All G3 models come standard with 64 controller-based snapshots and clone capability. The G3 arrays also support an optional
512 snaps.
Choose either a low-cost single controller array or start with a configured dual controller array model to fit the budget, high
availability, and performance needs.
All models feature a wide variety of drives: enterprise-class SAS, SAS Midline, and archival-class SATA Midline in either P2000
LFF 3.5-inch or HP Storage SFF 2.5-inch drives.
P2000 G3 models can have a maximum number of P2000 LFF drive enclosures (7), a maximum number of D2700 SFF enclosures
(5), or mix both sizes. The array can grow incrementally from a few drives to 178 TB SAS, 384 TB of SAS MDL or 192 TB SATA
MDL.
2 GB transportable read/write cache per controller. Battery-free cache backup with super capacitors and compact flash
Vdisks can be spanned across multiple enclosures
RAID levels 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, 10, 50
Maximums vary by RAID levels: 2 drive max for RAID level 1; max of 16 drives for RAID levels 0, 3, 5, 6, and 10; max of 32 drives
for RAID level 50
512 LUNs with LUN sizes greater than 40TB depending on the RAID configuration chosen. The maximum LUN size is 64TB
Non-disruptive on-line controller code upgrade (requires dual controllers w/ multi-pathing software)
Upgradable by design. Owners of an original MSA2000 G1 or G2 array are able to do data-in-place controller upgrades to the
P2000 G3 FC, Combo FC/iSCSI, 1 Gb or 10GbE iSCSI, or P2000 G3 SAS. Cross protocol upgrades are also supported between the
protocols. This unique ability protects the earlier investments in chassis, drives, and JBODs

HP MSA P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array Systems
Family Information
8Gb Fibre Channel
controller
Two host ports per FC controller shipped with SFPs. The P2000 G3 FC controller can run in either point-topoint or FCAL (loop). The default is FCAL which is used in Direct Connect, particularly with two controllers.
The PtP (fabric) mode is used with almost all switches.
Combo controller with
FC and iSCSI ports
This ingenious dual-protocol "combo" controller supports a full FC SAN through the 8Gb FC ports, while
designating the two 1 GbE iSCSI ports to enable remote replication over iSCSI protocol and perform as an
iSCSI target. This allows economical sharing of the storage resource (the P2000 G3 array) with one
department needing the performance afforded by the 8 Gb FC ports while simultaneously supporting
another department with lesser performance needs and a budget only allowing a 1GbE iSCSI network.
Four 4x host ports per 6Gb SAS controller.
6Gb SAS controller
10GbE iSCSI controller
Two 10GbE ports per G3 10GbE iSCSI controller. Ports are ready for the choice of SFP (none included)
Supports the ProCurve and ISS versions of the following 10GbE parts for use in the controllers:

Comes with space for one or two controllers, or P2000 3.5-inch disk Enclosure I/O modules (LFF chassis
only)
The P2000 G3 controllers support both the P2000 3.5-inch Large Form Factor (LFF) drives, and the HP
Storage 2.5-inch Small Form Factor (SFF) drives.
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) enterprise-class drives are designed for high demand, 24x7 usage.
SAS Midline and SATA Midline are usually reserved for archival of data as they are both relatively
inexpensive and are available in very large capacities.
The HP entry-level family of arrays can accommodate both SAS and SATA drives within the same enclosure
making it ideal to have both business-critical, high activity files on SAS drives while using Snapshot, clone,
or Remote Snap capability to keep back-up or archival data on the less expensive drives.
For investment protection, the controllers will support single and dual port SAS & SATA drives in a legacy
single - or dual - 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 a P2000 G3 FC or SAS. They can only
cascade to another single I/O MSA70. This is not a data-in-place transition, and overall performance could
be impacted.
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: P2000 and MSA2 3.5-inch Large Form Factor (LFF) drives are for use only in the P2000 G3 or

MSA2300 G2 controllers and are Storage hot-plug 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, AC or DC powered), so
also do they have a choice of expansion disk enclosures accommodating either drive size. Both the P2000
and the D2700 disk enclosures can be hot-added to an operating array.

This 3.5-inch drive enclosure can be attached to either the P2000 G3 FC or SAS LFF or SFF array head.
Each configured model ships standard with two .5m mini-SAS to mini-SAS cables for cascading to
other P2000 drive enclosures
Up to seven P2000 3.5-inch enclosures can be attached to a P2000 G3 FC, FC/iSCSI Combo, or SAS
controller in the array head.
D2700 2.5-inch drive enclosure. This 2U storage enclosure (AJ941A) is designed to support twenty five

This 2.5-inch drive enclosure can be attached to a P2000 G3 controller (SFF or LFF) array head
The D2700 enclosure ships with a two .5m miniSAS to miniSAS cable.
Up to five D2700 may be attached to the P2000 G3 array head, given total support for 149 SFF drives.
The P2000 G3 FC, Combo FC/iSCSI, SAS, 1 Gb or 10GbE iSCSI controllers are 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 7.2 TB SAS, 36TB SAS MDL or 24 TB SATA,
expandable to 57.6 TB SAS, 384 TB SAS MDL or 192 TB SATA with the addition of a maximum of seven
P2000 3.5-inch Drive Enclosures.
Small Form Factor configurations can scale from 21.6 TB SAS, 24 TB SAS MDL or 12 TB SATA MDL.
With the addition of five D2700 JBODs, the P2000 G3 can support 134 TB SAS, 149 TB SAS MDL or
74.5 TB SATA MDL.
Users may configure a 24-drive P2000 G3 SFF array head with 12-drive LFF P2000 3.5-inch disk
enclosures. This is an excellent method for a configuration that supports 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.
Vdisks can span across multiple enclosures, where drives used in the Vdisk can be contained in different
enclosures. The maximum number of drives that can be used in RAID 1 Vdisk is 2; RAID 0, 3, 5, 6, and 10 is
16; and for RAID 50 Vdisk is 32.
The HP 2000 family of arrays supports 512 LUNs (total volumes in a dual controller system) and LUN sizes
up to 64 TB depending on the RAID configuration chosen. The array supports expansion and deletion of any
LUN.
In addition to the usual RAID levels, the P2000 G3 features several 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

VMware Site Recovery
Manager (SRM)
VMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM)
VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) is an extension to VMware vCenter that delivers businesscontinuity and disaster-recovery solution that helps you plan, test, and execute the recovery of vCenter
virtual machines. SRM can discover and manage replicated datastores, and automate migration of
inventory from one vCenter to another. Site Recovery Manager integrates with the underlying replication
product through a Storage Replication Adapter (SRA).
HP P2000 Site Recovery Adapter (SRA)
The HP P2000 SRA, a free-to-use plugin, is the program that integrates the VMware cCenter SRM with HP
P2000 G3 arrays. It enables full-featured use of the VMware SRM. It is a host-software component
installed on a Microsoft Windows Server that enables disaster recovery management (DRM) software on
the host to communicate and control certain aspects of the replication feature in storage systems
connected to the server. It allows the VMware SRM software to automatically coordinate virtual machine
failover and failback between a protected data center and a disaster recovery site by employing a disaster
recovery solution called Remote Snap. A perfect combination of the Remote Snap replication and VMware
SRM provides an unfailing automated solution for implementing and testing the disaster recovery between
sites located across geographies. It enables communication between the HP P2000 Remote Snap
replication functionality that is embedded in HP P2000 Fibre Channel, iSCSI, and Combo Fibre Channel
systems. Users are required to acquire Remote Snap license for their local and remote HP P2000 G3 arrays
to use the HP P2000 SRA.
Site Recovery Manager Requirements/Dependencies:
Requires vSphere 5.0/SRM 5.0
Not compatible with SRM 4.x
Requires HP's P2000 SRA 2.0 Plug-in (downloadable from Hp.com)

vStorage API for Array
Integration (VAAI)
The vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI) is one of the storage application programming interface (API)
sets in vSphere 4.1. VAAI is an API storage partners can leverage to enhance performance of virtual
machine (VM) management operations by delegating these operations to the storage array. With hardware
offload, ESX/ESXi hosts perform certain operations faster and consume less server CPU and memory
resources, and also storage port and storage fabric bandwidth. VAAI includes high performance and
scalable VM data path primitives. HP introduced VAAI support for HP MSA P2000 Storage array products
starting with the T230 firmware release.

Software

HP P2000 Remote Snap Software is array based software that provides remote replication on the HP
P2000 G3 MSA Array products (except SAS model). HP Remote Snap is a form of asynchronous
replication which consists of replication of block-level data from a volume on a local system to a
volume that may be on the same system or on a second independent system. This second system may
be collocated with the first system or may be located at a remote site. It requires T230Rxx controller
firmware or higher.
HP Remote Snap functionality is based on existing Snapshot technology offered by HP P2000 SAN Array
products. Snapshots are used to track the data to be replicated as well as to determine the differences
in data updated on the master volume, minimizing the amount of data to be transferred.
HP Remote Snap replication technology provides the ability to accomplish key data management and
protection capabilities. First, because Remote Snap uses snapshots as the underlying technology it
creates multiple local recovery points which can be used for such tasks as to complement daily
backups; second, replication provides the ability to access data in a remote site which could be used for
dispersed operations; and third but definitely not least important replication allows for business
continuance in the event of a failure on the primary site.
In order to perform a replication, a snapshot of the volume to be replicated is taken, creating a point-intime image of the data. This point-in-time image is then replicated to the destination volume by
DA - 13551 North America — Version 36 — December 9, 2013

copying the data represented by the snapshot via a transport medium such as TCP/IP (iSCSI) or Fibre
Channel. The amount of data transferred is minimized though the use of snapshots whenever possible.

need 2 licenses).
Product Features
Storage based asynchronous snapshot replication
Initial copy of data can be performed locally, reducing burden on wide area networks
Support of both Ethernet and Fiber Channel interconnects provides flexible options to the application
environments.
Snapshot based replication technology means only changed data will be replicated to alternate site
Many to 1 replication (up to 4 nodes) - primary use case is to replicate from "many" branch offices to the
home office for the purpose of backing up data from the branches
Single controller to single controller replication
Mixed controller replication - replication between P2000 G3 Fibre Channel and P2000 G3 FC/iSCSI
Combo arrays
Advanced scheduler provides several options to IT administrators for business continuance
Flexible architecture allows remote replication between P2000 G3 Fibre Channel and/or P2000 G3
FC/iSCSI Combo arrays. You can also join dissimilar controllers; for instance a Combo controller can
snap remotely to a 1 or 10 GbE iSCSI array. Protects existing investments and enhances business
continuity planning objectives.
Replication Wizard simplifies the task of setting up and establishing replication pairs from one unified,
easy to use GUI.
Snapshot based replication enables both local and remote recovery depending on the need. Snapshot
replication isolates problems to a specific point in time which can be selected by the administrator.
Additionally snapshot replication supports longer distance replication.
Multiple relationships provide greater storage flexibility and utilization.
Bundled 64 Snapshots and Volume Copy integration provides better efficiencies by combining the
management and array technologies to create local copies.

Customer Benefits
Disaster Recovery
Replication technology has typically been used to address disaster recovery issues. Disaster recovery is still
the driving business case behind replication. Remote replication can be implemented from the production site
to one or more remote sites across a campus, across town, across a state or across the country. When a
disaster strikes the primary location, the applications can be brought up at the remote site and continue
processing against the replicated copies. When the primary site is back online, the replication can be reversed
and when the data is resynchronized, processing can be switched back to the primary site and business can
continue. In the past, if an e-mail system experienced a disaster it was an "oh well" moment. The loss of a day
or more of e-mail was not considered important. Today, e-mail is a critical component of many companies'
business plans and recovering e-mail after a disaster quickly and completely is required.
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). The primary
server can be worked on (patches, hardware upgrades, etc.) and then brought back online and into production.
A whole datacenter can be failed over to a remote site on purpose to perform maintenance on generators, air
conditioning, etc. Replication can also be used to perform a datacenter move with minimal downtime (fail
everything to the DR site, move the production datacenter to its new location then fail the DR site back to the
new datacenter).
Storage Based
Data replication is performed at the storage subsystem controller level and is totally transparent to the host,
alleviating unnecessary host cycles to perform the data mirroring functions. Unlike a fabric based or host
based solution, the storage based solution dedicates its resources to managing the replication process
between arrays, with minimal impact to applications, other data or devices on the SAN.

Bi-Directional
The bidirectional HP P2000 Array solution addresses the growing need among businesses to ensure
continuous availability of applications that are critical to daily business operations. HP P2000 enables two
sites in a remote replication connection to use each other as a destination to maintain replicated copies of
online data. This maximizes resource utilization while enabling business continuance, even in the event of
disaster.
Disaster Tolerance
The P2000 G3 FC products utilize snapshot data online and in real time to a remote P2000 G3 through a local
or extended storage area network (SAN). Additionally, data replication can be bidirectional, meaning that a
storage array can be both a source and a destination. A particular LUN can be replicated in only one direction
between the two storage arrays. Write I/O data sent to the source is replicated by HP P2000 Array to the
destination. A pair of properly configured HP P2000 G3 FC arrays is a replication solution that guarantees data
integrity in the event of a storage system or site failure.
Normalization (first initial copy)
When a DR site is initially created a normalization or initial copy of the data from the source volume to the
target volume must occur. The P2000 G3 array allows this first copy to take place locally. After completion the
disks can me manually moved to the remote location. Subsequent changes will only remotely copy the
changed blocks.
SAN Extensions
HP P2000 G3 Array provides the capability to replicate data over direct Fibre Channel. The distances supported
over dark fiber are determined by the speed of the dark fiber connection and the technology used to
communicate over the dark fiber.
