HP wva8400 a spectrum of offerings allowing customers to align their payments according to the usage of storage capacity. Please contact your local HP representative for further information.

The minimum number of high performance fibre channel drives supported on an EVA is 8. The EVA arrays will support single or mixed drive capacities and types solid state drives, high performance and FATA within an enclosure.

HP recommends using the same drive capacity type within a disk group because virtualization allocates space proportionate to the highest capacity drive within the group. A minimum of eight FATA drives are required in a configuration. FATA drives are designed for lower duty cycle applications such as near on-line data replication for back-up. These drives should not be used as a replacement for EVA’s high performance, standard duty cycle, Fibre Channel drives.

Doing so could shorten the life quicks;ecs the drive. FATA drives are not recommended in Continuous Access applications as the remote storage location for local data residing on standard higher speed disk drives.

Continuous Access tends to perform fairly high duty cycle random writes to the remote disk array. For more information on specific support specifications see the following Switch URL: Each EVA controller pair interfaces with M drive enclosures through redundant fibre channel arbitrated loops.

Each controller has qjickspecs redundant path to quic,specs drive. The solution is enhanced to perform remote replication, and deliver high data availability and performance to users on Fibre Channel based campus, metro or continental Storage Area Networks SANs.

Each controller has four redundant Fibre Qyickspecs FC host ports. In the event of a path failure, the alternate paths to the controller can be utilized with the use of multi-path software in the Operating System software or Secure Path software. Up to nine enclosures can be connected in a redundant FC loop arrangement The EVA, with four fibre channel device ports per HSV controller, supports 2 redundant fibre channel loops.

Each controller can connect to both ports on up to drives. The HSV controllers also have dual redundant hot plug power supplies and dual redundant hot plug blowers.

Each controller has hot plug cache batteries to maintain cache contents for up to 96 hours in case of a total power failure.

The enclosure also has dual redundant hot vea8400 power supplies and dual hot plug blowers. The drives are hot plug. The EVA, as a virtualized array, always provides striping of the drives across the entire disk group.

The drives can then be arranged, using redundant Vraid 1, Vraid 5 or Vraid 6 protection, so that a drive failure will not cause loss of data. Optional distributed sparing virtual sparing can be configured so that a drive failure will trigger an automatic rebuild of the Vraid 1 or Vraid 5 data set into spare space.

The EVA sparing protection will utilize available disk space in the disk group and when that is exhausted, the established virtual spare space. This methodology of using unused capacity can give customers the ability to have many disk worth of spare space for maximum data availability, protection and peace of mind.

All EVAs have dual redundant power distribution. Two independent power cords distribute power through two Power Distribution Units PDUs to each side of the EVA cabinets and to each power supply of the controllers and to each power supply of the drive enclosures.
