All MSA 2050 models offer a common set of valuable features (cont):

  • Storage Management Utility V3 (SMU). The MSA management GUI brings a new modern look and feel to array management.
  • Thin Provisioning allows storage allocation of physical storage resources only once they are consumed by an application. Thin Provisioning also allows over-provisioning of physical storage pool resources allowing ease of growth for volumes without predicting storage capacity upfront.
  • All models feature a wide variety of drives: High-performance SSD drives, enterprise-class SAS, and SAS Midline drives.
  • The MSA 2050 will support a maximum of 7 disk enclosures (either LFF and/or SFF). Add-on enclosures can either be HPE MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure or HPE MSA 2050 SFF Disk Enclosure.
  • The MSA 2050 can grow incrementally to a maximum of 96 LFF, 192 SFF drives, or a combination of SFF and LFF enclosures up to the maximum of 8 total enclosures.
  • Virtual Storage Disks Groups can be spanned across multiple enclosures.
  • Virtual Storage RAID levels supported: 1, 5, 6, 10.
  • Maximum hard drive counts vary by RAID levels: 2 drive max for RAID level 1; max of 16 drives for RAID levels 5, 6, and 10.
  • Multiple Disk Groups can be aggregated into a single Storage Pool.
  • Storage Pools allow data on a given LUN to span across all drives in a pool. When capacity is added to a system, the user is also getting a performance benefit of the additional spindles.
  • The maximum LUN size is 140TB (128TiB)
  • Snapshot enhancements for virtual storage, including performance improvements, hierarchical snapshots, and simplified resource management. Administrators can monitor and optionally control snapshot space usage.
  • Prioritize data by assigning appropriate affinity level (Performance, No Affinity or Archive)
  • Customers can configure 512 TiB capacity per virtual pool by enabling large pool support.
  • Non-disruptive on-line controller code upgrade. Requires Multi-pathing software.
  • Upgradable by design. Owners of an MSA 2040, MSA 2042 and MSA 1040 array are able to do data-in-place upgrades to the new MSA 2050 array. This unique ability protects the earlier investments in drives, and JBODs.

- Certain limitations are applicable. Please review  the Upgrading to the HPE MSA 1050/2050/2052 Technical Whitepaper before upgrading your MSA 2040, MSA 2042 or MSA 1040 systems

SAS controller

MSA 2050 SAS controller supports 6Gb and/or 12Gb SAS  host connectivity.

Modular

Chassis

2U rack height. 12 LFF or 24 SFF drive bays. All MSA 2050 Storage Systems come standard with 2 SAN or SAS controllers, depending on model.

NOTE: The MSA 2050 does not support single controller configurations. Single-controller support is provided only when a controller fails over to its partner controller.

Drives available

The MSA 2050 SAN or SAS Storage systems support both the MSA 3.5-inch LFF drives, and the MSA 2.5-inch SFF drives.

· Solid State Drives (SSDs) deliver exceptional performance for applications requiring high random read IOPs performance.

· Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) enterprise-class drives are designed for high demand, 24x7 usage.

· SAS Midline drives are usually reserved for archival of data as they are relatively inexpensive and are available in very large capacities.

Optional Disk Enclosures

Just as the user has a choice of chassis for the array enclosure (LFF or SFF drive bays), they also have a choice of expansion disk enclosures accommodating either drive size. Both the MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure and MSA 2050 SFF Disk Enclosure can be hot-added to an operating array. SFF and LFF Array enclosures and Disk Enclosures can be mixed without limitations.

MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure. This 2U enclosure is designed to support twelve HPE Storage LFF drives and accepts MSA dual-ported 12Gb SSD and SAS Midline hard drives. The pre-configured MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure has two I/O modules and supports the MSA 2050 dual controller arrays.

The MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure can be attached to the MSA 2050 LFF or SFF storage models.

Each MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure ships standard with two .5m mini-SAS to mini-SAS cables for connection to the MSA 2050 array expansion port or existing disk enclosure cascade port.

LFF and/or SFF Disk Enclosures can be mixed up to the maximum of 7 total Disk Enclosures

Scalability

The MSA 2050 array configurations are designed to allow an installation to begin with smaller capacity and be able to grow gradually as needed. The flexibility of SSD, Enterprise SAS or SAS Midline drives technology, form factors, sizes, speeds, and costs per GB allows a system to easily fit in almost any budget.

  • Large Form Factor configurations can scale up to 144TB SAS Midline per array enclosure, expandable to 1152TB SAS Midline with the addition of a maximum of seven MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure.
  • Small Form Factor configurations can scale up to 76.8 TB SAS SSDs per array enclosure, expandable to 614.4 TB SAS with the addition of a maximum of seven MSA 2050 SFF Disk Enclosure.
  • Users may configure an MSA 2050 SFF array enclosure with MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure. This is an excellent option for a configuration that supports high-speed SFF SSDs or fast SFF enterprise-class SAS drives in the array enclosure, combined with economical LFF drives staged for archival purposes, all in the same array.

Disk Group

A Disk Group is a collection of disks in a given redundancy mode (RAID 1, 5, 6, 10). Disk Group RAID level and size can be created based on performance and/or capacity requirements. Multiple Disk Groups can be allocated into a Storage Pool for use with the Virtual Storage features.

LUNs

The MSA 2050 arrays support 512 volumes and up to 512 snapshots in a system. All of these volumes can be mapped to LUNs. Maximum LUN sizes up to 140TB (128 TiB). Thin Provisioning allows the user to create the LUNs independent of the physical storage.

Storage Pools

Storage Pools are comprised of one or more Disk Groups. A volume’s data on a given LUN can now span all disk drives in a pool. When capacity is added to a system, users will benefit from the performance of all spindles in that pool.

The MSA 2050 supports large, flexible Volumes with sizes up to 128TiB and facilitates seamless capacity expansion. As pools are expanded data automatically reflows to balance capacity utilization on all drives.

RAID 1, 5, 6, 10

The MSA 2050 features several important additional RAID levels. RAID 6 offers the highest level of RAID protection. It allocates two sets of parity data across drives and allows simultaneous write operations. It can withstand two simultaneous drive failures without downtime or data loss. RAID 10 is mirroring and striping without parity and allows large Disk Groups to be created with high performance and mirroring for fault tolerance. RAID 5 combines the block striping and parity. Because data and parity are striped across all of the disks, no single disk is a bottleneck. Striping also allows users to reconstruct data in case of a disk failure.

Performance

The performance figures provided here are for reference as many variables exist between array configurations, workloads, hard drive types, disk group setup parameters and host system setup. Hewlett Packard Enterprise has traditionally published a set of end-to-end MSA performance specifications that are fed into HPE Sizer tools which are based on conservative real-world configurations. For consistency, the MSA performance numbers have been documented in both Benchmark and End-to-End Performance tables. Complete End-to-End Performance results will be provided for the MSA 2050 in a subsequent publication. These numbers are subject to change without notice.

Software

Advanced Data Services Suite

The HPE MSA Advanced Data Services Suite can be purchased as an option on the MSA 2050 Storage systems. The Advanced Data Service Suite is included as a standard feature on the MSA 2052 at no extra charge.  See the MSA 2052 QuickSpecs for more information.

The optional Advanced Data Services Suite includes the following functionality:

Performance Tiering and Archive Tiering

512 Snapshots and Volume Copy

Remote Snaps

 

HPE MSA Advanced Data Services Suite  LTU

Q0H99A

 

HPE MSA Advanced Data Services Suite E-LTU

Performance Tiering and Archive Tiering

 

Disk tiers are comprised of aggregating 1 or more Disk Groups of similar physical disks. The MSA 2050 supports 3 distinct tiers:

1. A Performance tier with SSDs

2. A Standard SAS tier with Enterprise SAS HDDs 

3. An Archive tier utilizing Midline SAS HDDs.

The MSA 2050 supports sub-LUN tiering and automated data movement between tiers. The MSA 2050 automated tiering engine moves data between available tiers based on the access characteristics of that data. Frequently accessed “pages” will migrate to the highest available tier delivering maximum I/O´s to the application.

Configurations which have a mixture of both SSDs and HDDs within the same system being used as a capacity Tier (excluding SSD Read Cache), will require the Advanced Data Service Suite LTU.  This rule applies to the system level and therefore the license is required regardless of whether the drives are configured for auto-tiering within the same Pool. All SSD configurations and SSD Read Cache extension do not require a license on the MSA2050 array.

Snapshot and
Volume Copy

All MSA 2050 arrays come standard with 64 snaps.

A 512 Snapshot license is available as an option on the MSA 2050

Snapshots create up to 512 point-in-time copies of data

Volume Copies create up to 128 point-in-time copies of data

Volume copies become standard volumes when they are complete

Recovery is instant - revert data from any previous Snapshot or Volume Copy

Backup 'snapped' data to disk, virtual tape, or physical tape without a backup window

If telephone support and software updates are desired for bundled software functionalities like 64 snapshots and volume copy software, a combination HW + SW support care pack must be purchased.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise does not provide warranty assistance for software products included with our base hardware products. Support is available with either the SupportPlus or SupportPlus24 Service options the hardware warranty component of these services is accounted for in the pricing of the SP and SP24 care packs.

Remote Snap

HPE MSA Remote Snap Software is array based software that provides remote replication on the HPE MSA 2050 array products. MSA Remote Snap is a form of asynchronous replication which consists of replication of block-level data from a volume on a local system to a volume on a second independent system. This second system may be co-located with the first system or may be located at a remote site.

HPE Remote Snap functionality is based on existing Snapshot technology offered by HPE MSA array products. Snapshots are used to track the data to be replicated as well as to determine the differences in data updated on the master volume, minimizing the amount of data to be transferred.

HPE Remote Snap replication technology provides the ability to accomplish key data management and protection capabilities. First, because Remote Snap uses snapshots as the underlying technology it creates multiple local recovery points which can be used for such tasks as to complement daily backups; second, replication provides the ability to access data in a remote site which could be used for dispersed operations; and third but definitely not least important replication allows for business continuance in the event of a failure on the primary site.

In order to perform a replication, a snapshot of the volume to be replicated is taken, creating a point-in-time image of the data. This point-in-time image is then replicated to the destination volume by copying the data represented by the snapshot via a transport medium such as TCP/IP (iSCSI) or Fibre Channel. The amount of data transferred is minimized though the use of snapshots whenever possible.

NOTE:  One Advanced Data Services Suite License per array is required for replication. For example, if you have two MSA arrays performing replication (from Primary system to Remote System), you will need a total of 2 licenses.

 

Product Features

Storage based asynchronous snapshot replication

Support of both Ethernet and Fibre Channel interconnects provides flexible options to the application environments.

Snapshot based replication technology means only changed data will be replicated to alternate site

Many to 1 replication (up to 4 nodes) - primary use case is to replicate from "many" branch offices to the home office for the purpose of backing up data from the branches

Advanced scheduler provides several options to IT administrators for business continuance

Flexible architecture allows remote replication between MSA 2050 and MSA 2040 or MSA 1040 arrays using the virtual storage architecture and licensed for Remote Snap. Protects existing investments and enhances business continuity planning objectives.

Snapshot based replication enables both local and remote recovery depending on the need. Snapshot replication isolates problems to a specific point in time which can be selected by the administrator. Additionally snapshot replication supports longer distance replication.

Multiple relationships provide greater storage flexibility and utilization.

512 Snapshots and Volume Copy integration provides better efficiencies by combining the management and array technologies to create local copies.

Fast application recovery with minimal or no transaction loss

Creation of disaster tolerant copies of your critical business data

No-single-point-of-failure solution to increase the availability of your data
