Type apparaat: Storage controller (RAID) - insteekkaart
Interfacetype: PCI-X / 133 MHz
The Smart Array 641 Controller (SA-641) is a 64-bit, 133-MHz PCI -X single SCSI channel PCI array controller for entry level hardware-based fault tolerance. Utilizing the internal SCSI channel of the SA-641 allows you to configure up to 6 internal hard drives to store up to 880.8 GB of storage.
The SA-641 provides high reliability and increased performance over the LC2 controller, thus providing excellent value and lowering the total server ownership cost. In addition, the SA-641 is data compatible with all Ultra 320, Wide Ultra3 and Wide Ultra2 drives, offering an unparalleled degree of investment protection.
Designed and integrated with HP entry-level and workgroup ProLiant servers, this product provides worry-free data protection.
The Smart Array Controller can be upgraded with the 64-MB or 128-MB BBWC (Battery Backed Write Cache) Enabler allowing the Smart Array 641 Controller an option to add transportable BBWC for improved controller performance.
|The Smart Array Advantage||HP's innovative design and integration work of the Smart Array family of products creates customer value that is unmatched in the industry. Use of Smart Array products across multiple applications results in a much lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) than any other server storage RAID products. The HP Smart Array family brings an unparalleled return on investment through:|
Data Compatibility among all models of Smart Array controllers allows simple and easy upgrades any time needs for higher performance, capacity, and availability increase. Even successive generations of Smart Array controllers understand the data format of other Smart Array Controllers.
Consistent Configuration and Management Tools
|All Smart Array products utilize a standard set of management and utility software. These tools minimize Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by reducing training requirements and technical expertise necessary to install and maintain the HP server storage.|
Universal Hard Drive
|Form factor is for use across multiple HP ProLiant servers, disk enclosures and storage systems. With compatibility across many enterprise platforms, you are free to deploy and re-deploy these drives to quickly deliver increased storage capacity, migrate data between systems, and easily manage spare drives.|
|Pre-Failure Warranty||Pre-Failure Warranty means Insight Manager not only reports when a drive is going to fail but allows replacement of failing drives prior to actual failure. For complete details, consult the HP Support Center or refer to your HP Server documentation.|

Key Features for 64MB BBWC (Battery-Backed Write Cache) Enabler
|The 64MB BBWC Enabler is a transportable 64MB battery module increasing the total memory of the controller to 128MB for RAID, read cache, and BBWC. The transportability of the battery memory module protects the write cache data from unexpected power loss, system board failure, or controller board failure. Data retained in the write cache will be protected for up to 72 hours, allowing time to restore power, or transport the module to a functioning system board or array controller. The modular design of the battery memory module is transportable between the Smart Array 641 and Smart Array 642 controllers.|
64MB BBWC (Battery Backed Write Cache) Enabler allows the 641controllers an option to add transportable BBWC for improved controller performance and increases the total controller memory to 128MB.
Key Features for 128-MB BBWC (Battery-Backed Write Cache) Enabler
|The new 128MB BBWC Enabler is a transportable 128MB battery module increasing the total memory of the controller to 192MB for RAID, read cache, and BBWC. The transportability of the battery memory module protects the write cache data from unexpected power loss, system board failure, or controller board failure. Data retained in the write cache will be protected for up to 72 hours, allowing time to restore power, or transport the module to a functioning system board or array controller. The modular design of the battery memory module is transportable between the Smart Array 641 and Smart Array 642 controllers.|
128MB BBWC (Battery Backed Write Cache) Enabler allows the 641controllers an option to add transportable BBWC for improved controller performance and increases the total controller memory to 192MB.
|Data compatibility among all models of Smart Array Controllers means customers can instantly upgrade their Smart Array products to get to higher performance, capacity and availability. Unlike competitive products, successive generations of Smart Array products understand the data format of other Smart Array controllers, providing investment protection for your HP storage solution.|
