Disk Group

A Disk Group is a collection of disks in a given redundancy mode (RAID 1, 5, 6, 10, MSA-DP+).  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 2060 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.  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 2060 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 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, MSA-DP+

The MSA 2060 features several important additional RAID levels.  MSA-DP+ offers improved performance, availability, and very fast rebuild times compared to traditional parity RAID by utilizing erasure coding technology.  MSA-DP+ includes distributed spare capacity (default is equal to 2x the largest drive), and does not use traditional spare drives.  RAID 6 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. RAID 0 (Striping) is supported for Read Cache only.

 

MSA-DP+

MSA-DP+ is a new RAID-based data protection level introduced with the 6th Generation MSA Storage Systems that:

· Maximizes flexibility

· Provides built-in spare capacity

· Optimizes performance due to the elimination of idle spares

· Allows for very fast rebuilds, large storage pools, and simplified expansion

 

If a disk fails in an MSA-DP+ disk group, and the failed disk is replaced with a new disk in the same slot, the replacement disk will be added to the disk group automatically.  All disks in an MSA-DP+ disk group must be the same type (enterprise SAS, for example), but can have different capacities, provided the range of difference does not exceed a factor of two.  For example, mixing a 600GB disk and a 1.2TB disk is acceptable; but mixing a 6TB disk and a 16TB disk is not recommended.  It is conceivable that a sizeable difference between mixed disk capacities (ratio greater than two) could prevent consuming space on disks due to insufficient distributed space required to support striping.

 

All disks in an MSA-DP+ disk group are used to hold user data, but not all disks will be used by each page of data.  To increase fault tolerance, any available capacity on disks can be allocated as spare for reconstruction purposes.  When new data is added, new disks are added, or the system recognizes that data is not distributed across disks in a balanced way, the system moves the data to maintain balance across the disk group.  Spare drives are not used by MSA-DP+ disk groups since the RAID design provides built-in spare capacity that is spread across all disks in the disk group.  In the case of a disk failure, data will be redistributed to many disks in the disk group, allowing for quick rebuilds and minimal disruption to I/O.  The system will automatically default to a target spare capacity that is the sum of the largest two disks in the MSA-DP+ disk group, which is large enough to fully recover fault tolerance after loss of any two disks in the disk group.  The actual spare capacity value can change depending on the current available spare capacity in the disk group.  Spare capacity is determined by the system as disks are added to a disk group, or when disk groups are created, expanded or rebalanced.

Notes:

­ HPE recommends not mixing disks if the ratio of the largest disk to the smallest disk is greater than two.

­ For more information on MSA-DP+, refer to the HPE MSA 1060/2060/2062 Storage Management Guide.

Advanced Data Services Suite

The HPE MSA Advanced Data Services Suite can be purchased as an option on the MSA 2060 Storage systems.

The optional Advanced Data Services Suite includes the following functionality:

· Performance Tiering

· 512 Snapshots and Volume Copy

· Remote Snap functionality

 

Performance Tiering and Archive Tiering

Disk tiers are comprised of aggregating 1 or more Disk Groups of similar physical disks. The MSA 2060 supports 3 distinct tiers:

· A Performance tier with SSDs

· A Standard SAS tier with Enterprise SAS HDDs 

· An Archive tier utilizing Midline SAS HDDs.

 

The MSA 2060 supports sub-LUN tiering and automated data movement between tiers.  The MSA 2060 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.  Configurations with all SSDs or SSD Read Cache extension do not require a license on the MSA2060 array.

 

Snapshot and Volume Copy

· All MSA 2060 arrays come standard with 64 snaps.

· A 512 Snapshot license is available as an option on the MSA 2060.

· 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 HPE Pointnext operational.

 

Remote Snap

HPE MSA Remote Snap Software is array based functionality that provides remote replication on the HPE MSA 2060 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.

· MSA Remote Snaps are used to determine the data to be replicated using the differences in snapshots on the primary volume, minimizing the amount of data to be transferred.

· MSA 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 create 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 compared to the point-in-time image taken during the previous replication and the changes are 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.

· 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 2060 and MSA 2062 or MSA 1060 arrays using the virtual storage architecture and licensed for Remote Snap with the Advanced Data Services LTU.

· 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.

· 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.

· With the improved disaster recovery features of the MSA 1060, MSA 2060 and MSA 2062, you can failover to the secondary / remote volume or volume group, map the secondary volume or volume group for access, then, when the primary array has recovered, failback to the primary volume or volume group, with the option to incorporate changes made to the secondary volume or volume group back to the primary volume or volume group.

· Another improvement in Remote Snap with the MSA 1060, MSA 2060 and MSA 2062 is the ability to reverse the direction of the replication set

 

Notes:  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.

vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI)

The vStorage API for Array Integration (VAAI) is one of the storage application programming interface (API) sets in vSphere. VAAI is an API storage partners can leverage to enhance performance of virtual machine (VM) management operations by delegating these operations to the storage array. With hardware offload, ESX/ESXi hosts perform certain operations faster and consume less server CPU and memory resources, and also storage port and storage fabric bandwidth. VAAI includes high performance and scalable VM data path primitives.

 

Storage Hardware Primitives for VAAI

· Full Copy or Hardware Assisted Move

· Block Zeroing or Hardware Assisted Zeroing

· Hardware Assisted Locking or Atomic Test and Set (ATS)

· UNMAP reclaims space that is no longer on a thinly provisioned VMFS volume

 

LDAP Support

LDAP (Lightweight Directory Access Protocol) is an industry standard application protocol for accessing and maintaining distributed directory information services over an IP network.  LDAP provides the ability to authenticate MSA users with a central directory.

· Domain or Directory Credentials are not stored on the MSA for authentication – avoids a security issue.

· Once user groups are configured on all MSAs in your organization, users can be authenticated on any MSA through the Active Directory.

· Uses an LDAP implementation to authenticate users with a Windows Active Directory.

· The MSA CLI and SMU will allow the configuration of new LDAP users groups into the MSA security scheme (manage vs monitor users, interface restrictions Web/CLI/FTP).

· Ability to authenticate Local or LDAP users.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I/O Workload Functionality

A beneficial user interface element called "I/O Workload" is included in the MSA web browser (SMU v4).  The MSA array controllers keep track of a substantial amount of data pertaining to the I/O dynamics at a logical page level (4MB chunks).  From this data, it is possible to provide some visibility to what percent of I/O’s are being processed by what percent of the overall array’s capacity across a 7 day timeline.  While some workloads have "transient" data access patterns, many workloads have steady access patterns on small portions of the array’s capacity.  This produces "hot" pages in the array which remain hot a large amount of the array’s uptime. Users would see substantial benefits if these pages could be served from the fastest media in the array (ideally SSDs).  As has been described in the MSA’s tiering functionality, the MSA array’s tiering engine will work to position the hottest pages on the fastest media at any given time.

 

The new I/O Workload graph will show a line labeled Capacity and a line plot for each selected workload percentage (100%, 80%, or Other% value).  Below are two examples of user scenarios where the I/O Workload Graph might be useful and how to utilize the data the graph provides.

· New User or SSD Installation.

· Once the MSA array is installed and has had workloads running against it for a week’s time, the I/O Workload data will give a representation of what Capacity is servicing 100% of I/O and 80% of I/O. Users may select a custom % value if desired. In a new installation or in an installation with no SSD tier installed, the 80% line is a reasonable starting point for an SSD tier.  Based on SSD RAID settings, customers can then calculate a good starting point with regard to SSD tier sizing based on that week’s workload.  While not a hard fast rule, it is a good starting point. These values should also be compared to the Best Practices "rule of thumb" which suggest that 5-15% of the array’s capacity should be SSDs for tiered solutions.

· Users with existing SSD tiering or read caching installed and running.

· For arrays running with SSDs installed (tiered or read cache), the I/O Workload graph will have a dotted line which shows the installed SSD capacity.  The I/O Workload graphs can be checked periodically to see where the 80% I/O line is with regard to the SSD capacity line.  While there are no hard and fast rules which indicate good/bad situations, users can use the graph with other system performance tools to better understand specific dynamics of their installation and the normal dynamics of a system in the day-to-day activities for a specific environment.

 

Interpreting the I/O Workload graphs allow users to strike a balance between the SSD costs versus performance benefits.  For example, some customers may be willing to have a couple of days where peak usage is far above the SSD capacity line as it may be acceptable to have slower performance as the system uses  HDDs for a larger percentage of the workload I/O.  This may be perfectly acceptable for systems sized to optimize $/TB due to budget constraints.  Other users may want to optimize the system such that a sizeable percentage of daily I/O have the opportunity to reside on SSD media (sized to 80% or 90%).  When combined with other performance monitoring tools, the new I/O Workload function gives users some representation as to how the workloads and the MSA are working together in a user’s real-world environment.

 

HPE Complete – Zerto

HPE MSA Storage users can leverage Zerto Virtual Replication to replicate applications and data from one MSA array to another MSA array. Popular use cases include departmental MSA storage replicated to enterprise storage, enterprise storage replicated into MSA array, or protect MSA workloads into the cloud.

 

Zerto operates on the hypervisor level and includes orchestration and automation built-in to enable faster recovery of workloads (RTO in minutes) at much lower Recovery Point Objective (RPO of seconds) available through other data protection tools like backup. Zerto is also a workload mobility tool and allow IT to confidently move workloads and data across heterogeneous storage or cloud.

 

Ordering, configuring and installing Zerto is simple.  Zerto is licensed by number of Virtual Machines that are being protected or moved.  For mobility use cases, order the appropriate number of migration licenses needed.  For replication use cases, order the appropriate quantity of Zerto Virtual Replication licenses using a combination of the tiered licenses plus the corresponding maintenance part numbers.  The license is independent of source and target array size, type or capacity being replicated.  See the HPE Complete/Zerto QuickSpecs for a complete list of part numbers.  A corresponding MSA Advanced Data Services LTU is not required for data replication when using Zerto Virtual Replication.  An MSA Advanced Data Services LTU would be required if deploying MSA array-based replication.

 

Zerto installs as a virtual machine under VMware or Hyper-V or in the Cloud as a VM in AWS and Azure in minutes Zerto does not install any components in the guest operating system and does not depend on any specific configuration of the storage or use MSA array or VMware snapshots to replicate and recover applications.

 

Zerto virtual replication is available on HPE Catalog via HPE Complete program.

MSA Health Check Tool

MSA Health Check is a cloud-based tool that provides users insight into the general health of their MSA array.  The tool uses a powerful rules-based analytics engine which can predict failures before they happen.  The MSA Health Check tool performs a full sweep of analytics and checking thousands of data points from sensors inside the MSA array.  The analytics engine will pick up common failure signatures and check against MSA best practices producing a simple, easy to digest PDF report with status and suggested courses of action to correct anything found in the scan.  The tool is free of charge to HPE MSA customers.  The MSA Health Check tool is supported across all current MSA 1060/2060/2062 arrays as well as the prior three generations of arrays (MSA P2000 G3, MSA 1040/2040/2042 and MSA 1050/2050/2052).  The tool is available immediately at:

MSA 2060 Benchmark Performance Results

The performance figures provided here are for reference as many variables exist between array configurations, workloads, 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.  These numbers are subject to change without notice

Notes:

­ Number and type of applications, drive type and number of drives, operating system used, and the number of hosts will affect overall performance.  This table is provided strictly as a test-lab comparison.  These numbers reflect a full array configuration with the maximum number of front-end ports and controllers.  The test results shown for the HPE MSA 2060 are designed to give a conservative reference point for comparisons.

­ All performance numbers were captured using dual controller configurations.

­ All performance numbers were captured using four volumes per pool.

1Sequential tests (MB/s) are based on 256K block sizes and random tests (IOPS) are based on 8K block sizes. For sequential workloads with a queue depth greater than 1, each sequential stream is targeted to operate on a separate LBA range. Other types of sequential workloads that target specific LBA ranges may achieve higher results. Results cannot be expected with a single host.

2Fibre Channel results were measured using 16 Gb FC Host Bus Adapters. SAS results were measured using 12 Gb SAS Host Bus Adapters. 10 GbE iSCSI results were measured using 10GbE iSCSI Host Bus Adapters. Hosts were directly attached to the HPE MSA 2060 array.
