Disk group
  • 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 1050 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 1050 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 1050 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

  • RAID 0 (Striping) is supported for Read Cache only

3rd Party server support
The MSA 1050 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 virtualized features
  • Automated tiering of enterprise SAS (Standard tier) and MDL SAS (Archive tier)

  • Read cache and Wide-Striping

  • Sub-LUN tiering from SAS MDL to Enterprise SAS drives is also a standard feature

Advanced data services suite
  • The optional advanced data services suite includes the following functionality:

    • Performance tiering between the SSD tier and the standard or archive tier

    • 512 Snapshots

    • Remote snaps

Performance Tiering and Archive Tiering
  • A Performance tier with SSDs

  • A Standard SAS tier with enterprise SAS HDDs

  • An Archive tier utilizing MDL SAS HDDs

Snapshot and volume copy
  • All MSA 1050 arrays come standard with 64 snaps

  • A 512 Snapshot license is available as an option on the MSA 1050

  • Snapshots create up to 512 Point-in-Time copies of data

  • Volume copy can create up to 128 Point-in-Time copies of data

  • Point-in-Time 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 Remote snap replication technology provides the ability to accomplish key data management andprotection capabilities.

  • HPE MSA Remote snap software is array based software that provides remote replication on the HPEMSA 1050 array products

  • In order to perform a replication, a snapshot of the volume to be replicated is taken, creating a point-intimeimage of the data

  • Storage based asynchronous snapshot replication

  • Support of iSCSI 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

  • Replication between on MSA 1050 to another MSA is supported (1 to 1 peer connection)

  • Replication up to four MSA 1050s to a single MSA 2050 is supported. Typical 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 1050 and MSA 2050 or MSA 2040/1040 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

  • 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 the critical business data

  • No single point of failure solution to increase the availability of user data

HPE OneView for VMware vCenter
When deployed with the MSA 1050 array, HPE OneView provides the following:
  • Active management functionality for the MSA 1050 array

    • Create/Expand/Delete a Datastore

    • Create a virtual mMachine from a template

  • Monitors the health and status of the MSA 1050

  • Displays LUN / volume connections from VMs and ESX servers to the arrays and provides the location and attributes of the MSA 1050 within the SAN

  • Identifies what storage features are available to allow administrators to match the features available on the MSA 1050 to their requirements

  • Provide a Cluster-Level view of the storage
