Overview

HP 3Gb SAS BL Switch

The HP 3Gb SAS BL Switch for HP BladeSystem c-Class enclosures is an integral part of HP direct connect SAS storage, enabling a straight forward external zoned SAS or shared SAS storage solution. The SAS architecture combines a P700m Smart Array in each server and 3Gb SAS BL switches connected to HP MDS600 enclosures for zoned direct attached SAS storage, or MSA2000sa arrays for shared SAS storage. The HP Storage Works 3Gb SAS BL Switch contains an embedded Virtual SAS Manager (VSM) GUI & CLI interface used to zone, monitor, and update SAS fabric devices.

The 3Gb SAS BL Switch enables two external SAS storage solutions for BladeSystem servers:

Zoned Direct Attached Storage: Use the Virtual SAS Manager of the 3Gb SAS BL Switch to zone groups of drive bays in the

MDS600 and assign them to individual blade server bays. A P700m Smart Array controller installed in the server provides RAID functionality for the group of SAS and SATA drives that have been zoned to that server. The logical drives provided by the P700m will appear as local drives to that individual server. The P700m offers load balancing and fail over anytime dual paths to dualported SAS drives are available when using two HP Storage Works 3Gb SAS BL Switches cabled to a MDS600 configured with the

HP MDS600 Dual I/O Module Option Kit.

Shared SAS: The 3Gb SAS BL Switch can also be used to access shared SAS storage provided by the MSA2000sa. A P700m Smart

Array controller installed in each server acts as a pass through, with RAID functionality for shared SAS storage provided by the

MSA2000sa array. The MSA2000sa creates a shared storage environment where more than one blade server can access a storage logical unit.

At A Glance

Hot Pluggable 3Gb/s SAS Switch for HP BladeSystem

Eight external Mini-SAS ports containing 4x 3Gb/s SAS links

Use Mini-SAS cables to connect to MDS600 enclosures for zoned direct attach SAS storage or MSA2000sa enclosures for shared

SAS storage

Dual Domain direct attached SAS architecture supported using HP MDS600 Dual I/O Module Option Kit and dual-ported SAS drives.

Supports higher performance between the 3G SAS Switch and MDS600 drawer by attaching 2 SAS cables from any quad of 3G

SAS Switch external Mini-SAS ports to the 2 Mini-SAS ports on the MDS600 IO module to create an 8x wide SAS connection capable of 2.4GByte/s peak bandwidth. Note: Both SAS cables used for the 8x connection must attach to the same quad of external ports on the HP 3Gb SAS BL Switch (ports 1-4 or ports 5-8).

NOTE: MDS600 SATA support for 8x connection to the 3Gb BL SAS switch requires all the drive bays of a drawer be populated.

Use the embedded Virtual SAS Manager GUI or CLI interface to zone switch ports or drive bays to server bays.

Supported by c3000 and c7000 BladeSystem enclosures

Supports SAS tape devices for optional backup

BL Switch. Attaching more than 2 tape drives per switch and transfer sizes greater than

64K could result in a failed backup or restore. A future release of firmware on the tape library drives will allow more than 2 tape drives to be attached to a switch.
