HP MSA P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array System
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.
Capacity can easily be added as the need develops by attaching additional drive enclosures. Maximum capacity
ranges with LFF drives up to 57.6 TB SAS, 288 TB SAS Midline or 192 TB SATA Midline with the addition of the

drive enclosures can grow to 134 TB of SAS, 149 TB of SAS Midline or 74.5 TB SATA Midline with a total of 96 LFF or
149 SFF drives. The P2000 G3 Arrays do not support SSDs.

Features
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 ProLiant 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 134 TB SAS, 288 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

SATA. 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
ProLiant 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.
Optional Disk
enclosures
NOTE: P2000 and MSA2 3.5-inch Large Form Factor (LFF) drives are for use only in the P2000 G3 or
MSA2000 models. The 2.5-inch Small Form Factor (SFF) drives are supported only with the P2000 G3
or the MSA2300 G2 controllers and are common with and are the same part numbers as the ProLiant
hot-plug 2.5-inch drives.
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.
(NOTE: these are not supported as part of a NEBS-certified configuration with the MSA Carrier Grade
Chassis. There is a certified JBOD listed in the Carrier-grade section)

HP MSA P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array System
Family Information
P2000 3.5-inch drive enclosure. This 2U unit has twelve LFF (3.5-inch) drive bays and accepts for
P2000 dual-ported SAS and SATA drives. The pre-configured HP P2000 Dual I/O LFF Drive Enclosure
(AP843B) has two I/O modules and supports both single and dual controller arrays. If a single I/O disk
enclosure model is desired, the appropriate chassis should be purchased along with a single I/O
module (AP844B).
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 ProLiant 2.5-inch Universal form factor (SFF) 6Gb SAS or SATA hard drives. It ships standard with
dual I/O modules installed.
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.
Scalability
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, 288TB 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 enterpriseclass 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
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.
LUNs
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.
RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 6, In addition to the usual RAID levels, the P2000 G3 features several important additional levels. RAID 6
10, 50
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
Performance numbers are a guideline as established by tests using RAW I/O in an Operating System
Agnostic test lab environment. 144 GB 15K SAS drives were used in a dual controller configuration of
12 vdisks consisting of twelve disks per vdisk, 1.6 TB volumes, and 3 volumes per host. 4 hosts directly
attached to the P2000 G3 array 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. This table is provided strictly as a test-lab

VMware Site RecoveryVMware Site Recovery Manager (SRM)
Manager (SRM)
VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager (SRM) is an extension to VMware vCenter that delivers
business-continuity 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)
SRM works with Remote Snap functionality

HP Insight Control Storage Module for vCenter
HP Insight Control Storage Module for vCenter is a component within the HP Insight Control plugin for vCenter. It provides VMware administrators that are using VMware's vSphere management
console (vCenter) with the ability to see how virtual machines are mapped to datastores and
individual P2000 volumes. By providing these clear relationships between VM's, datastores and
storage, the VMware administrator's productivity increases, as does the ability to ensure quality of
service. Roles for administrators can be defined on an individual basis, providing the ability to apply
specific permissions for both view and control functions.
The HP Insight Control Storage Module for vCenter supports mixed array environments including
EVA, P4000, P2000 (MSA), and the XP array series including the P9500.
When deployed with the P2000 array, provides the following:
Active Management functionality for the P2000 array:
Create/Expand/Delete a Datastore
Create a Virtual Machine from a template
Monitors the health and status of the P2000
Displays LUN / volume connections from VMs and ESX servers to the arrays and provides
the location and attributes of the P2000 within the SAN
Identifies what storage features are available to allow administrators to match the features
available on the P2000 to their requirements
Provide a cluster-level view of the storage

vStorage API for Array The vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI) is one of the storage application programming
Integration (VAAI)
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.

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-in-time image of the data. This point-in-time image is then replicated to the
destination volume by 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.

(NOTE: One license per array is required for replication. For
example, if you have two P2000 arrays performing replication
(from Primary system to Remote System), you will need 2
licenses).

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
DA - 13551 Worldwide QuickSpecs — Version 27 — 8.23.2012
Page 20
QuickSpecs
HP MSA P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array System
Optional Software
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.
Path failover (MPIO)
MPIO for Windows provides a single multi-path solution for HP P2000 G3 Modular Smart Array on
HP servers.
Support for Windows 2003 and Windows 2003 R2 operating systems is provided by HP MPIO Full
Featured DSM. For the P2000 G3 this version is 2.6.1.7 or greater.
Support for Microsoft Windows 2008 is bundled within the operating system
Support for Linux distributions is with Device Mapper 4.4.0 or greater.
Support for HPUX is native multipathing in HP-UX v3 and PV-Links in HP-UX v2.
