The storage ARRAY is dead, long live the storage ARRAY

June 2, 2014

msa_1040The newly released MS 1040 is the successor to the P2000 range. The MSA 1040 builds upon the heritage of HP storage arrays. As a replacement for the P2000 the MSA 1040 has 50% more performance and is factory configured dual controller array with either 1GbE iSCSI, 10 GbE iSCSI or 8Gb Fibre Channel.  Each MSA 1040 has 4 ports (two per controller).  It has 2X the controller cache, and faster processors than the P2000.

Did you know? The MSA 1040 can have a maximum of three disk enclosures (3); consisting of MSA 2040 LFF disk enclosures and/or D2700 SFF disk and that can equate to 48 LFF or 99 SFF drives!
