View the refurbished HP SB40c Storage Blade 411243-B21 Quickspecs here
The used and refurbished SB40c Storage Blade here at IntelligentServers.co.uk delivers direct attached storage for c-Class servers, with support for up to six hot plug small form factor (SFF) SAS or SATA hard disk drives. The enclosure backplane provides a PCI Express connection to the adjacent c-Class server blade and enables high performance storage access without any additional cables. The SB40c Storage Blade features an onboard Smart Array P400 controller with 256 MB battery-backed write cache, for increased performance and data protection.
Use HP LeftHand P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance (VSA) software to turn the SB40c into an iSCSI SAN for use by all severs in the enclosure and any server on the network. HP LeftHand VSA software is installed in a virtual machine on a VMware ESX host server adjacent to the SB40c. HP LeftHand P4000 VSA turns the SB40c into a scalable and robust iSCSI SAN, featuring, storage clustering for scalability, Network RAID for storage failover, thin provisioning, snapshots, remote replication, and cloning. Expand capacity within the same enclosure or to other Bladesystem enclosures by adding additional SB40c Storage Blades and HP LeftHand VSA licenses. A cost effective bundle of the SB40c Storage Blade and a HP LeftHand P4000 VSA license makes purchasing convenient. If storage needs increase, add HP P4300 or P4500 systems externally and manage everything via a single pane of glass.

A benefit of SAS and SATA is the use of a common physical connection which allows for both drive types to be supported by the same storage device. This common backplane allows customers the choice of using SAS and/or SATA, allowing customers to choose the reliability of SAS or the lower cost of SATA for tiered storage.
Form factor is for use across multiple HP ProLiant servers, disk enclosures and storage systems. With compatibility across many enterprise platforms, you are free to deploy and re-deploy these drives to quickly deliver increased storage capacity, migrate data between systems, and easily manage spare drives.
Front panel LEDs indicate drive activity and system health status.
The SB40c fits into a half height bay on the BladeSystem c3000 and c7000 Enclosure
Using the internal Smart Array P400 controller with 256 MB DDR2 BBWC, the SB40c can be configured for RAID levels 0, 1, 1 + 0, 5, and 6 (RAID ADG)
All Smart Array products utilize a standard set of management and utility software. These tools minimize Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by reducing training requirements and technical expertise necessary to install and maintain the HP server storage.
