Key capabilities set HPE MSA apart
Advances in the Gen6 architecture make HPE MSA a better choice than ever. From a much more streamlined user experience to additional performance to in-array data protection, everything you need is here.
Hands-free performance tiering
Deliver application acceleration based on workload need—in real-time and without lifting a finger. Automated tiering with SSDs delivered a 2-4x increase in IOPs in previous HPE MSA generations. We boost that an additional 45% with our new Tiering 2.0 algorithms in Gen6.
New, simplified daily dashboard
Gen6 introduces an at-a-glance dashboard to provide admins what they need instantly: utilization, alerts, performance data, activities, and logged historical changes. All with drill down for additional detail, and you can rest easy knowing your storage is ready to deliver the agility and speed you need.
Advanced on-array data protection
Take advantage of a new level of in-array data protection that spans drives, incorporates sparing, and dramatically simplifies expansion—allowing users to include drives of different capacities. HPE MSA Data Protection Plus (MSA-DP++) for Gen6 eliminates idle HDD spares, speeds rebuild times by up to 25X, and improves overall system efficiency and performance.
Eliminate 76% of MSA support calls with the HPE MSA Gen6 Health Check tool. This cloud-based tool searches sensor data for known issues, adherence to best practices, and more, which maximizes availability, improves user experience, and slashes local management overhead.
