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. 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.
The SA-P411 Controller supports up to 100 drives. Additional drives can be supported
with cache and connection to an expander
The SA-P411 Controller supports the HP 60 Modular Smart Array,HP 70 Modular Smart
Array, HP D2600 Disk Enclosure, HP D2700 Disk Enclosure, and HP 600 Modular Disk
System.
Seamless upgrades to current or next generation HP high performance and high capacity
Serial Attached SCSI Smart Array controllers
6Gb/s SAS technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth and contains full
compatibility with 3Gb/s SATA technology.

cache provides up to 4.2 GB/s maximum bandwidth
Write-back caching (with BBWC or FBWC)
Native Command
Queuing
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_div/11940_div.html

Pre-Failure Warranty
Fault Prevention
The following features offer detection of possible failures before they occur, allowing preventive
action to be taken:
S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) was first developed by
HP which detects 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.
Environment Tracking for External Storage System: Monitors fan speed and cabinet
temperature of Modular Smart Array Enclosures and HP Disk Enclosures.

Standard Features
Fault Tolerance
Keeps data available and server running while a failed drive is being replaced; several fault
tolerance configurations are supported including:
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 6+0: Supported with min of 8 drives, but would have 4 available. Target benefit is to
split RAID across the external boxes
NOTE: RAID 6, 6+0 can be enabled with either
Minimum of 256 MB cache with Battery kit and Smart Array Advanced Pack License
key option upgrades
Minimum of 512 MB BBWC or FBWC and Smart Array Advanced Pack License key
option upgrades
RAID 5 (Distributed Data Guarding): This allocates one set of parity data across drives
and allows simultaneous write operations. This level of fault tolerance can withstand a
single drive failure without downtime or data loss.
RAID5 is available on the SA P411 with a minimum of 256MB cache
RAID 5+0: This is a RAID 0 array striped across 5 elements. Combines the straight blocklevel striping of RAID 0 with the distributed parity of RAID 5.
Drive Mirroring (RAID 1, 1+0): This allocates half of the drive array to data and the other
half to mirrored data, providing two copies of every file. It is a high-performance RAID.
Fault Recovery
Minimizes downtime, reconstructs data, and facilitates a quick recovery from drive failure
Recovery ROM: This new feature provides a unique redundancy feature 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.
Battery-backed write cache upgrade provides for up to two days of battery power for data
cache retention. The data backup duration could be extended anytime the server's
auxiliary power is available during system power down.
Flash Backed Write Cache upgrade provides indefinite data retention.
Ease of Use
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 HP Modular Smart Array enclosures and HP
Disk Enclosures
