HP 3PAR StoreServ 7400c 2-Node 25.5TB 15K SAS 10GB iSCSI SAN With 2x DL360 Gen10 Rack Server
All the hardware has been reset back to factory defaults with default passwords. This configuration comes with ALL SFP's, rails and cables so you're ready to plug and play!
You have 18.1TB usable capacity! You can see storage breakdown in the images.
Both servers have 40-Cores & 128GB DDR4 RAM.
If you don't know much about HPE 3PAR and why the technology is revolutionary to the SAN Storage and Storage sector as a whole, we've outlined a few major advancements compared with traditional SAN Storage Arrays and RAID technology.
This solution is ideal for storage DRS as it has both spinning disk's and SSD's. DRS is the resource scheduling and load balancing solution for vSphere, it works on a cluster of ESXi hosts and provides resource management capabilities like load balancing and virtual machine placement. When Storage DRS is enabled, it provides recommendations for virtual machine disk placement and migration to balance space and I/O resources across the datastores in the datastore cluster. DRS strives to keep your VMs happy.
Both servers have 1x HP 562SFP+ 10GB Dual Port adapter installed that connect to the Cisco Nexus C3064PQ Switch. This is the network switch you'll be using for your 10GB iSCSI SAN network traffic, but you could also VLAN segment it for normal network traffic as well.
The Nexus C3064PQ delivers 10GB performance with up to 48 ports in an energy-efficient, 1U form factor, providing maximum flexibility for diverse deployment and cooling strategies. It provides a flexible, simple, and easy-to-use SAN solution with industry-leading technology.
The DL360p Gen10 Servers have 1x embedded 4-Port adapters to connect the servers to your existing core Ethernet network.

The HP SAN Controller is capable of RAID 0 RAID 0+1 RAID 5 RAID 6-ADG RAID 10 RAID 50 RAID 60 logical drive configurations
- HPE 3PAR Storage Arrays cut the spinning hard disk drive and SSD drives into 1GB chunklets automatically as soon as the hard drives are inserted into the array. Physical disks are divided into chunklets. When a physical disk is admitted to the system, it is divided into chunklets that become available to the system. Some chunklets are used by Logical Disks. Other chunklets are designated as spares, to hold relocated data during a disk failure or during maintenance procedures.
- Each chunklet occupies contiguous space on a physical disk. Space on a physical disk is allocated as follows: All chunklets are 1 GiB; 256 MiB of space is reserved for the table of contents (TOC), which contains the internal description of the system. The TOCs on all physical disks in the system contain the same information; 4 MiB of space is reserved for diagnostic use-2 MiB beginning after the TOC and 2 MiB from the end of the disk logical block address; One or more chunklets are allocated as spares. Any chunklet can be reserved as a spare, but the system setup script selects those chunklets as close to the end of the physical disk's logical block space as possible; The remainder of the disk can be used for Logical Disks.
- Spare Chunklets Explained - Some chunklets are identified as spares when the system is first set up at installation. Data from other chunklets is moved or reconstructed to these spare chunklets in response to a chunklet or disk failure or when a drive magazine must be serviced. This initial spare storage is equal to the amount of storage in a single drive magazine, using the largest size physical disks.
- A Logical Disk (LD) is a collection of physical disk chunklets arranged as rows of RAID sets. Each RAID set is made up of chunklets from different physical disks. LDs are pooled together in Common Provisioning Groups (CPG), which allocate space to virtual volumes. Creating CPGs maps out the data layout parameters for creating LDs. LDs are created automatically by the system when virtual volumes are created from CPGs. The RAID type, space allocation, growth increments, and other LD parameters can be set when you create a CPG, or can be modified after you create a CPG. For information about CPGs.
One of the most amazing parts of HPE 3PAR Chunklet technology is that you can lose a whole disk shelf to either power failure or disk loss and you still don't lose your data. This is because there is a rule when the Chunklet RAID Sets are created when you setup your CPG. The array will not let more than 2x 1GB Chunklets from the same Chunklet RAID set reside on the same hard drive or disk shelf. This means that using either RAID1, RAID5 or RAID6 for your CPG's, you will be able to tolerate the loss of a full disk shelf without losing your data or having to bring your 3PAR SAN Storage Array offline.
Another great feature if that you don't have to group disks into RAID sets of the same sized disk anymore. Because 3PAR splits the disk into 1GB chunklets, as long as you have the same speed disk in the same RAID sets, you can group all sorts of sized disks together. For example, you could have a CPG of 146GB, 300GB, 450GB, 600GB, 900GB or 1.2TB 10K RPM and or 15K RPM hard drives with no problem, because they are of the same speed RPM (You can have 10K and 15K RPM drives in the same CPG). It's the same for the 7.2k RPM drives.... You could have a mixture of 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, 4TB, 6TB or 8TB 7.2k RPM disks in the same CPG, again, because they are of the same RPM speed... Sizes doesn't matter because your 3PAR array cuts your disks into 1GB chunklets! It's the same for SSD's! You can mix the same speed SSD's in the same CPG's!
Another amazing part of 3PAR technology is "Peer Persistence" - If you have 2x HPE 3PAR Array in the same data centre or even at separate colocation facilities, you can group them together into a "Peer Persistence Group". This bascally means that you can present 2x SAN Storage Arrays as 1x Storage array to your HOSTS!! Your hosts think there is just one array using 1x WWN number for then SAN, when in fact there is 2x 3PAR SAN Storage Array. One is the Master Array and one is the Standby Array. In the event of a major disaster, like a power outage to the Master Array, the Standby Array will take over instantly, with no affect felt by your hosts! True SAN failover WITHOUT the setup complexities of old technologies like the old HPE EVA Continuous Access. The 3PAR Arrays do not need to be of the same model or age, you could have a HPE 3PAR 7200c and a HPE 3PAR 8400 in the same Peer Persistence Group.
