MSA2042 - HP MSA 2042 Modular Smart Array

The MSA 2042 further drives the MSA 2040 family into the world of flash acceleration with a new set of MSA models which includes 800GB of flash capacity in all SFF and LFF configurations. In addition to including 2x400GB Mixed Use SSDs in the base configuration, the MSA 2042 also includes a rich set of software features as standard including 512 Snapshots, Remote Replication and Performance Tiering capabilities, all at a very attractive price compared to other hybrid configurations. The 800GB of SSD capacity can be used as Read Cache or as a start to building a fully tiered configuration. With the inclusion of the Advanced Data Services SW License, customers can choose how to best utilize these SSDs to provide the optimal flash acceleration for their performance hungry applications. Both Read Cache and Performance Tiering utilize a real-time tiering algorithm which works without user intervention to place the most accessed data on the fastest medium at the right time. The MSA 2042 will dynamically move hot pages up to SSD for flash acceleration and move cooler, more stagnant data back down to spinning media as workloads change in real time hour-to-hour, day-to-day, and week-to-week. All done hands free and without any management overhead from the IT manager.
