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. Most current shipping 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.
Smart Carrier is used across multiple HP Servers. 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.

RAID 6 (Advanced Data Guarding): Supported with a minimum of 4 drives. This allocates two
sets of parity data across drives. This level of fault tolerance can withstand a double drive
failure without downtime or data loss.
RAID 60: Supported with a minimum of 8 drives. This volume is composed of two or more RAID
6 sub-volumes (parity groups) where data is striped across each parity group as if it were a
single physical drive. Each RAID 6 parity group can sustain up to two drive failures without
incurring data loss.
RAID 5 (Distributed Data Guarding): Supported with a minimum of 3 drives. This allocates one
set of parity data across drives. This level of fault tolerance can withstand a single drive
failure without downtime or data loss.
RAID 50: Supported with a minimum of 6 drives. This volume is composed of two or more RAID
5 sub-volumes (parity groups) where data is striped across each parity group as if it were a
single physical drive. Each RAID 5 parity group can sustain a single drive failure without
incurring data loss.
RAID 1 & 10 (Drive Mirroring): Supported with a minimum of 2 drives. This allocates half of the
drive array to the data and the other half to the mirrored data, providing two copies of the
data.
RAID 1 ADM & 10 ADM (Advanced Data Mirroring): Supported with a minimum of 3 drives. RAID
1 ADM creates redundant copies of the data using 3 drives. RAID 10 ADM stripes data across
two or more sets of RAID 1 ADM volumes. This level of fault tolerance can withstand a double

The HP SSD Smart Path feature included in the Smart Array software stack improves Solid State Disk
(SSD) read performance. With up to 4x better SSD read performance, HP SSD Smart Path chooses the
optimum path to the SSD and accelerates reads for all RAID levels and RAID 0 writes. HP SSD Smart
Path requires updated firmware, drivers, and configuration utility available at: www.hp.com/go/hpssa.
HP SSD Smart Path is ideal for read intensive workloads and is included as a base feature on HP Smart
Array P-series controllers. The following operating systems are supported by the HP SSD Smart Path
feature:

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.
Consistency and Upgradeability on most current shipping Smart Array products make them unique in
the industry:


HP SmartCache is deployed and managed using the HP SmartStorage Administrator (HP SSA).
The basic HP SmartCache architecture is comprised of the following three elements:



Bulk storage: The first element is the bulk storage device, which is any supported HDD
attached to the HP Smart Array controller.
Accelerator: The second element, the accelerator, is a faster/lower latency SSD device that
caches data.
Metadata: The final element is metadata, information held in the FBWC that maps the
location of information residing on the accelerator and bulk storage devices.

HP Secure Encryption
HP Secure Encryption is a Smart Array controller-based data encryption solution for ProLiant Gen9
servers that protects sensitive, mission critical data. This is an enterprise-class encryption solution for
data at rest on any bulk storage attached (with the exception of tape or external arrays such as P2000
or MSA 2040) to the supported HP Smart Array Px4x family of controllers including data on the cache
of the controller.
The solution is available for both local and remote deployments. Local Key Management Mode is
focused on single server deployment where there is one Master key per controller that is managed by
the user. All volumes still have their own unique key(s) for data encryption. Remote Key Management
Mode is for enterprise wide deployments and requires HP Integrated Lights Out (iLO) Advanced or Scale
Out editions v2.0 or later and HP Enterprise Secure Key Manager (ESKM) 3.1 or any later release. The
HP ESKM manages all the encryption deployments from just a few servers to thousands of servers and
2 million keys per HP ESKM 3.1 cluster.

Warranty
The warranty for this device is 3 years parts only.
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.

NOTE: Go to the HP Hard Drive Compatibility table for complete drive compatibility
information (http://www.hp.com/products/harddiskdrives). Using hard drives in
unsupported configurations will result in voiding the warranty and could result in
damage to the drive and/or loss of data.
NOTE: The components of a storage subsystem (e.g. the drive, the HBA/controller,
firmware, and the server backplane) should operate at the same data transfer rate or
the system bandwidth will be negotiated down to an acceptable level for all
components.
NOTE: Hard drives have either a one year or three year warranty; refer to the specific
hard drive QuickSpecs for details.
