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 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.

RAID Processor and
Expander
The P812 1 GiB 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

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
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. Available soon in FW version 3.x.
Number of Drives
P812 supports up to 108 drives. Examples:
Eight internal drives plus four HP StorageWorks D2700 Disk Enclosures with 25 drives each (108
drives)
Eight internal drives plus eight HP StorageWorks D2600 Disk Enclosures with 12 drives each (104
drives)
Eight internal drives plus four HP StorageWorks MSA70 Disk Enclosures with 25 drives each (108
drives)
Eight internal drives plus eight HP StorageWorks MSA60 Disk Enclosures with 12 drives each (104
drives)
RAID Levels
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 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.

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.

Standard Features
Fault Recovery
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
Consistency and Upgradeability make the Smart Array family unique in the industry:

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
