Smart Array Controllers and Smart Host Bus Adapters

Are you looking to add additional storage but don’t have the room in your server?

The HPE Smart Array P741m Controller is a PCIe 3.0 mezzanine, 12 Gb/s SAS RAID controller that provides enterprise-class storage performance, increased external scalability, and data protection for HPE ProLiant Gen9 blade servers. It features 8 external 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 (FBWC), global online spare, and pre-failure warning.

The Gen9 family of Smart Array controllers support the HPE Smart Storage Battery. With HPE Smart Storage Battery, multiple Smart Array controllers are supported without needing additional backup power sources for each controller, resulting in simple upgrade process.


Increased Performance and Support Flexibility

The HPE Smart Array P741m Controller comes standard with HPE SmartCache providing both read and write acceleration for workloads such as databases or web pages.

This controller can run in RAID or HBA mode.

When running in HBA mode, the Smart Array P741m Controller can support Software Defined Storage Applications such as Microsoft Storage Spaces when configured with the D3000 JBODs.

Data Protection with Encryption Capability

The HPE Smart Array P741m Controller offers optional HPE Secure Encryption capability that protects data at rest on any bulk storage attached to the controller.

Smart Array P741m controller complies with FIPS 140-2 cryptographic module requirements.

Long-term data retention with 2GB Flash-Backed Write Cache (FBWC) for improved data reliability.

Delivers predictive spare activation for improved rebuild, and increased uptime even in a recovery mode.

Efficient and Simple Configuration

The HPE Smart Array P741m Controller and the attached storage devices are configured and managed by the easy–to-use HPE Smart Storage Administrator software which is included in the intelligent provisioning of the server.

Data compatibility between the HPE Smart Array Controller family allows simple and easy migration at any time when needs for higher performance, capacity, and availability increase such as migrating an existing just a bunch of disks (JBOD) to a more advanced disk array configuration.
