Disk group
It 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 volumes 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+
  • 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.

Configuration and management tools
  • Management access, out-of-band, Storage Management Utility (SMU) V4, CLI.

  • Interface Types: USB 100/1000 Ethernet.

  • Protocols Supported SNMP, SMI-S, SSH, SMTP, FTP, SFTP, HTTP, HTTPS, Telnet

Web browser support
The MSA 2060 arrays come integrated with a new web browser (SMU v4) and CLI based software for storage and RAID management, setup, configuration, and troubleshooting.
  • Microsoft internet explorer

  • Mozilla firefox

  • Google chrome

Hot plug expansion and replacement support
  • All MSA 2060 models support hot plug expansion and replacement of redundant controllers, drives, fans, power supplies, and I/O modules for simple, fast installation and maintenance.

  • Hot add expansion of drive enclosures is also supported.

HPE Server compatibility
The MSA 2060 supports most HPE ProLiant, BladeSystems and Integrity servers including
  • HPE ProLiant DL, ML Servers

  • HPE c-Class Blade Servers

  • Integrity servers, IA64

3rd Party server support
The MSA 2060 supports most multi-vendor industry standard Intel and AMD based (x86) servers. Hewlett Packard Enterprise requires the Third-Party Server to be logged and listed on the Microsoft Windows Server Catalog.
  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends that the Third-Party Server Vendor is an active member of TSANet.

  • Non-HPE servers will generally be supported if the HPE storage stack is used. This includes supported HPE branded HBAs and drivers, and supported FC switches.

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

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.

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.
HPE OneView for VMware vCenter
HPE OneView for VMware vCenter is a component within the HPE OneView plug-in for vCenter. It enables vSphere administrators to quickly obtain context-aware information and manage supported HPE storage devices like the MSA in their VMware vSphere environment directly from within vCenter.

HPE OneView for system center
HPE OneView for Microsoft System Center provides a comprehensive integration of HPE Storage, HPE Servers, HPE Blade System and HPE Virtual Connect with Microsoft System Center.
When deployed with the MSA 2060 array, HPE OneView for System Center provides the following:
  • Monitors the health, events and alerts for the MSA 2060 – virtual pools, and volumes.

  • Provides topology information for VMs provisioned on the MSA Storage array.

 
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.
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.
I/O Workload functionality
A beneficial user interface element called I/O Workload is included in the MSA web browser (SMU v4).

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 is free of charge to HPE MSA users. 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).
 
Performance
  • 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.
