The HP Smart Array P430 Controller is a low profile, PCIe3 x8, 12 Gb/s capable Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) RAID controller that provides enterprise class storage performance and data protection for select HP ProLiant Gen8 rack and tower servers. It features eight internal physical links and delivers increased server uptime by providing advanced storage functionality, including online RAID level migration (between any RAID levels) with flash back write cache, global online spare, and pre-failure warning. Data compatibility between HP Smart Array Controllers means customers can easily upgrade to future Smart Array Controllers.
The SA-P430 Controller supports up to 27 drives depending on the server implementation.
Seamless upgrades from past generations and upgrades to next generation HP high performance and high capacity Serial Attached SCSI Smart Array controllers.
12 Gb/s SAS performance when used on a DL580 Gen8 with 12 Gb/s devices (SSDs or HDDs)
6 Gb/s SAS technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth and contains full compatibility with 6 Gb/s SATA technology.
PCI Express Gen3 x8 link width delivers high performance and data bandwidth up to 8 GT/s theoretical maximum bandwidth
2 or 4 GiBytes Flash Backed Write Cache (FBWC) provides read ahead caching and write back caching with indefinite write cache data retention in the case of unexpected power outage
Standard on the P430 are RAID 6 ADG, RAID 60 ADG, RAID 1 ADM, Capacity Expansion, mirror split, recombine, and rollback in Online Mode, Drive Erase, Performance Optimization-Degraded Reads and Read Coalescing, Move/Delete any individual LUNS and Online Split Mirror.
Capable of supporting both legacy and UEFI boot operation on a DL580 Gen8 server
The HP SSD Smart Path feature included in the Smart Array software stack improves SSD read for all RAID levels and RAID 0 write operations by optimizing the path to each SSD attached to the controller
The HP SmartCache feature (HP Smart Cache license is required on P430) is a controller-based read caching solution in a DAS environment that caches the most frequently accessed data ("hot" data) onto lower latency SSDs to dynamically accelerate application workloads.
The HP Secure Encryption, available as an option, is a Smart Array controller-based data encryption solution for ProLiant Gen 8 servers that protect sensitive, mission critical data.
Mix-and-match SAS and SATA hard drives lets you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your computing environment.
Software consistency on most current shipping Smart Array products: HP Smart Storage Administrator, HP Systems Insight Manager (SIM), and HP Intelligent Provisioning. The HP Smart Storage Administrator configures and manages a host of Smart Array Controllers and other storage devices using a single interface. It replaces the HP Array Configuration Utility (ACU) with an updated design and configuration enhancements.
Low-profile PCI Express form factor - ships with a full size and a low profile bracket for deployment flexibility based on slot availability.
