The HP StorageWorks 2000fc G2 Modular Smart Array (MSA2000fc) represents the newest Fiber Channel model of the MSA2000 family (which includes the MSA2000i iSCSI and the MSA2000sa SAS connected models), a generation of HP storage arrays specifically designed for entry-level customers and features the very latest in functionality and technology at highly affordable price points. The MSA2000fc G2 is a 4 Gb Fiber Channel connected 2U storage area network (SAN) or direct connect solution designed for small to medium size departments or remote locations. The controller-less chassis is offered in two models - one comes standard with twelve 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 and archival-class SATA drives. The chassis can have one or two MSA2300fc controllers. The MSA2000fc G2 is all about the ability to choose the proper configuration to fit individual needs. The user can opt for the 24- drive bay SFF chassis for the highest spindle counts in the most dense form factor, or go for the 12 drive bay LFF model to max out total capacity. Choose a single controller unit for low initial cost with the ability to upgrade later; or decide on a model with dual controllers for the most demanding entry-level situations. Capacity can easily be added when needed by attaching additional drive enclosures. Maximum raw capacity ranges with LFF drives from 5.4 TB SAS or 12 TB SATA in the base chassis, to 27 TB SAS or 60 TB SATA with the addition of the maximum number of drive enclosures. Configurations utilizing the SFF drive chassis can grow from twenty-four to a total of ninety-nine SFF drives. The MSA2300fc has been fully tested up to 64 hosts.General Information
