The Smart Array

Advantage

HP Smart Array P812 Controller

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. 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 Drive form factors (2.5" and 3.5") are used across multiple HP servers, disk enclosures and storage systems. With compatibility across many enterprise platforms, you are free to deploy and redeploy 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.

HP Smart Array P812 Controller

P812 includes a PMC-Sierra SRC 8x6G SAS RAID-on-chip featuring:

Eight SAS/SATA physical links, each supporting 6, 3, and 1.5 Gb/s for SAS protocol and 3 and 1.5

Gb/s for SATA protocol

Eight PCI Express 2.0 lanes each supporting 5 Gb/s

DDR2-800 memory controller

High performance MIPS-based multi-processor subsystem

Hardware XOR and Reed-Solomon Engines for RAID 5 and RAID 6 acceleration

P812 also includes a PMC-Sierra SXP 36x3GSec 6 Gb/s SAS Expander to support six Mini SAS connectors in one controller card.

The P812 1GB array accelerator features a flash-backed cache. If the cache DRAM contains write data when power is lost, the write data is copied into flash memory chips on the cache module, drawing power from attached capacitors. When power is restored, if the flash memory chips contain write data, the data is copied back into the DRAM so it can be flushed to the drives.

Advantages over battery-backed cache architectures include:

No 72-hour deadline for retrieving the data before the batteries fully discharge

Capacitors charge faster than batteries; controller disables the write cache for only a few minutes waiting for capacitors to charge rather than a few hours waiting for batteries to charge

No need for periodic battery replacement

No special disposal process

P812 supports the latest interface speeds.

Standard Features

Native Command Queuing

(NCQ)

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_na/11940_na.html

.

Dual Domain Support

Number of Drives

RAID Levels

Dual domain SAS creates redundant pathways for external drives from servers to storage devices. The redundant paths created by these configurations reduce or eliminate single points of failure within the storage network. This provides increased levels of high availability with redundant paths from the controller to the drives. Dual domain SAS implementations make it possible to tolerate host bus adapter

(HBA) or controller failure, external cable failure, expander failure, cable pulls, expander failure and failure in a spanned disk (JBOD) environments.

P812 supports up to 108 drives. Examples:

Eight internal drives plus four HP D2700 Disk Enclosures with 25 drives each (108 drives)

Eight internal drives plus eight HP D2600 Disk Enclosures with 12 drives each (104 drives)

Eight internal drives plus four HP MSA70 Disk Enclosures with 25 drives each (108 drives)

Eight internal drives plus eight HP MSA60 Disk Enclosures with 12 drives each (104 drives)

RAID 0 (striping) provides no extra data protection. Data is striped across all drives in the array to increase performance. RAID 0 requires a minimum of one drive.

RAID 1 (mirroring) protects against failure of one drive. Data is duplicated on a pair of drives. RAID 1 requires a minimum of two drives. Also see the Advanced Pack Mirror Splitting and Combining feature.

RAID 1+0 (mirroring and striping) protects against failure of one drive (and failure of particular multiple drives). RAID 1+0 is a nested RAID method that uses RAID 0 striping across RAID 1 arrays to provide performance and protection. RAID 1+0 requires a minimum of four drives. Also see the

Advanced Pack Mirror Splitting and Combining feature.

RAID 5 (distributed data guarding) protects against failure of one drive. Data protection is provided by parity data distributed across all the drives. When a physical drive fails, data that was on the failed drive can be calculated from the remaining parity data and user data on the other drives in the array. This recovered data is usually written to an online spare drive through a process called a rebuild. RAID 5 requires a minimum of three drives.

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 50 (RAID 5+0) 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.

RAID 60 (RAID 6+0) 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 RAID

DA - 13558 North America — Version 18 — September 10, 2013 Page 4

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.

Environment Tracking for External Storage System: Monitors fan speed and cabinet temperature of

Modular Smart Array Enclosures.

Standard Features

Fault Recovery

HP Smart Array P812 Controller

Minimizes downtime, reconstructs data, and facilitates a quick recovery from drive failure

Recovery ROM: This feature provides unique redundancy that protects from a ROM image corruption. A new version of firmware can be flashed to the ROM while the controller maintains the last known working version of firmware. If the firmware becomes corrupt, the controller will revert back to the previous version of firmware and continue operating. This reduces the risk of flashing firmware to the controller.

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.

Ease of Use

Warranty

Consistency and Upgradeability make the Smart Array family unique in the industry:

GUI based configuration, management and diagnostic software tools

Common data format between generations of products

Data migration between servers and external Modular Smart Array enclosures

The warranty for this device is 3 years parts, labor and onsite.

Pre-Failure Warranty: Drives attached to the Smart Array Controller and monitored under Insight Manager are supported by a Pre-Failure (replacement) Warranty. For complete details, consult the HP Support

Center or refer to your HP Server Documentation.

RAID 6 (Advanced Data Guarding) protects against failure of any two drives. RAID 6 requires a minimum of four drives. ADG can tolerate multiple simultaneous drive failures without downtime or data loss and is ideal for applications requiring large logical volumes, because it can safely protect a single volume of up to 56 disk drives. RAID 6 also offers lower implementation costs and greater usable capacity per U than RAID 1.

RAID 60 (RAID 6+0) 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 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.

Advanced Capacity Expansion automates higher capacity migration using capacity transformation to remove logical drives by shrinking and then expanding them online. Standard drive migration and expansion remain unchanged.

Mirror Splitting and Recombining. Mirror splitting is a task that splits an array with one or more RAID

1 or RAID 1+0 logical drives into two identical new arrays with RAID 0 logical drives. This is useful for administrators who want to replicate a configuration or need to build a backup before performing a risky operation. Using the ACU, administrators can also recombine a split mirrored array.

Drive Erase completely erases physical disks or logical volumes. This capability is useful when decommissioning, redeploying, or returning hard drives. Provides three patterns:

One pass erase: Write zeros

Two pass erase: Write random data, then zeros

Three pass erase: Write random data, random data, then zeros

Video On Demand Performance Optimization optimizes performance of video on demand and improves latency during video streaming. Provides controls for:

RAID 6/60 Alternate Inconsistency Repair Policy

RAID 5/6/50/60 Degraded Mode Performance Optimization
