Hewlett Packard's MSA P2000 G3 storage arrays feature the latest 8Gb Fibre Channel, 6Gb SAS, 10GbE iSCSI connected models, and an iSCSI model with four 1Gb iSCSI ports per controller. All MSA P2000 G3 models can be equipped with single or dual controllers, feature the same scalability, and offer 6Gb SAS back-end transmission speed to drives and JBODs.
Just as the user has a choice of chassis for the array head (LFF and SFF drive bays), so do they have a choice of expansion disk enclosures to accommodate LFF and SFF HDDs.
The controller-less MSA P2000 chassis is offered in two models - one comes standard with twelve Large Form Factor (LFF) 3.5-inch drive bays, the other can accommodate twenty-four Small Form Factor (SFF) 2.5-inch drives. Both are able to simultaneously support enterprise-class SAS drives, SAS Midline, and archival-class SATA Midline drives. The HP D2700 SFF 25 drive enclosure is also fully supported.
