HP SAS Expander Card
Overview
The HP Smart SAS Expander Card enhances the Smart Array controller family by allowing support for more then 8 internal hard disk
drives on select ProLiant servers when connected to a Smart Array P410 Controller (SA-P410) or Smart Array P410i Controller (SAP410i). The full height, Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) expander card supports up to 24 internal drive bays plus an external connection
for tape. The HP SAS Expander Card is ideal for ProLiant server customers that want to RAID more than 8 internal hard disk drives or
for ProLiant server customers who purchase an additional internal drive cage and want to be able to RAID across all internal drives.
(NOTE:
NOTE: The use of the HP SAS Expander Card requires a minimum of 256MB cache on the SA-P410 or SA-P410i Controller.)

Standard Features
The Smart Array
Advantage
HP's innovative design and integration work of the Smart Array family of products, including the HP SAS
Expander Card connected to a SA-P410 or SA-P410i Controller 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 Hard Drive form factor is for use across multiple HP servers, disk enclosures and storage
systems. With compatibility across many enterprise platforms, you are free to deploy and re-deploy 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.
Smart Array Advanced Pack (SAAP) delivers value added software features with the Smart Array
Controller, which will further enhance performance, reliability, and availability of customer data.

3 Gbps SAS (300MB/s bandwidth per physical link) (6 Gbps SAS capable)
1.5 Gbps SATA (150MB/s bandwidth per physical link) (3 Gbps SATA capable)
Capacity
Given the increasing need for high performance and rapid capacity expansion, the SAS Expander Card
and the SA-P410 or SAP410i Controller offers:
Up to 14TB of total storage with 14 x 1TB 3.5" SATA MDL HDD
Up to of 7.2 TB total storage with 24 x 300GB 3G SAS 10K SFF DP ENT HDD
Fault Recovery
The HP SAS Expander Card helps to minimize downtime.
Recovery ROM: This feature protects the user from a firmware image corruption by storing a
redundant copy of the firmware image. If the active firmware image becomes corrupt, the
controller will use the redundant firmware image and continue operating.
