MSA 2052 SAN controller supports 8Gb FC, 16Gb FC, 1GbE iSCSI or 10GbE iSCSI host connectivity. .

SAS controller

MSA 2052 SAS controller supports 12Gb host connectivity. .

Modular

Chassis

2U rack height. 12 LFF or 24 SFF drive bays. All MSA 2052 Storage Systems come standard with 2 SAN or SAS controllers depending on model

NOTE: The MSA 2052 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 2052 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, Enterprise SAS, and SAS MidLine (MDL) hard drives. The pre-configured MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure has two I/O modules and supports the MSA 2052 dual controller arrays.

The MSA 2050 LFF Disk Enclosure can be attached to the MSA 2052 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 2052 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

HPE MSA 2050 SFF Disk Enclosure This 2U enclosure is designed to support twenty four HPE Storage 2.5-inch SFF drives and accepts MSA dual ported 12Gb SSD, Enterprise SAS, or SAS MidLine (MDL) hard drives. The pre-configured MSA 2050 SFF Disk Enclosure has two I/O modules and supports the MSA 2052 dual controller arrays.

The MSA 2050 SFF Disk Enclosure can be attached to the MSA 2052 LFF or SFF storage models

Each MSA 2050 SFF Disk Enclosure ships standard with a two .5m mini-SAS to mini-SAS cables for connection to the MSA 2052 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 2052 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 (MDL) 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 MDL per array enclosure, expandable to 1152TB SAS MDL 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 2052 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 2052 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 2052 supports large, flexible Volumes with sizes up to 128TiB and facilitates seamless capacity expansion. As volumes are expanded data automatically reflows to balance capacity utilization on all drives.

RAID 1, 5, 6, 10

The MSA 2052 features several important additional 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. These end-to-end performance numbers are subject to change without notice.

NOTE: 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 2050 are designed to give a conservative reference point for comparisons.

1. Sequential tests (MB/s) are based on 256K block sizes and random tests (IOPS) are based on 8K block sizes run against the storage. 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.

2. Fibre Channel results were measured using 16 Gb FC Host Bus Adapters.

Software

Advanced Data Services Software Suite

The HPE MSA Advanced Data Service Suite is included as a standard feature on the MSA 2052 at no extra charge. The standard MSA Advanced Data Services Software Suite includes the following functionality:

· Performance Tiering and Archive Tiering Software

· 512 Snapshots and Volume Copy Software

· Remote Snap Software

Performance Tiering and Archive Tiering

Disk tiers are comprised of aggregating 1 or more Disk Groups of similar physical disks. The MSA 2052 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 2052 supports sub-LUN tiering and automated data movement between tiers. The MSA 2052 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.

To enable the tiering (data movement) between the Performance tier with SSDs and either of the other tiers, the Advanced Data Services Suite is required. Systems containing only SSDs will not require additional licenses until additional tiers are added.

Snapshot and

Volume Copy

· 512 Snapshots and Volume Copy are standard features on the MSA 2052

· 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

Remote Snaps

· 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 2052 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

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. This plug-in operates independently of the core HPE OneView product and does not require a license to use.  By providing a clear relationship between VM's, datastores and storage, the VMware administrator's productivity increases, as does the ability to ensure quality of service. Roles for administrators can be defined on an individual basis, providing the ability to apply specific permissions for both view and control functions.

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 new user interface element called “I/O Workload” has been added to the main screen on MSA’s WBI home screen for GL270 or later firmware. 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/Os 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 arrays 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 MSAs 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.

1)  New User or SSD Installation

a. 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 weeks 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.

2) Users with existing SSD tiering or read caching installed and running

a. 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.

Optional File Controller(s)

Add optimized, secure, and reliable file services to your MSA 2050 with one or more pre-configured HPE Storage File Controllers. Augmenting an MSA 2050 with a file controller or highly-available file controller cluster creates a unified block/file solution that maximizes your total storage investment. Each HPE Storage File Controller is built on HPE ProLiant DNA and Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2016, and can serve thousands of concurrent users and multiple diverse workloads while providing a straightforward and familiar management experience for IT generalists or storage administrators.

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 Quickspec for a complete list of partnumbers. 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.
