HPE MSA 2040 Storage


ENERGY STAR certified HPE MSA 2040 is a high-performance storage array designed for entry level Hewlett Packard Enterprise customers desiring 8Gb/16Gb Fibre Channel, 1GbE/10GbE iSCSI, or 12Gb SAS connectivity with 4 host ports per controller. The MSA 2040 Storage array provides an excellent value for customers needing performance balanced with price to support initiatives such as consolidation and virtualization. 

The MSA 2040 delivers this performance by offering:  
• High performance controller architecture  
• 6GB cache per controller (Data (Read/Write) cache = 4GB and Metadata and System OS memory = 2GB)
• Four host ports per controller
• Support for SSDs, Enterprise SAS HDDs, Midline SAS HDDs, and Self Encrypting Drives  
• SAN and SAS interfaces
• Up to four (4) host ports per controller
• Two new MSA 2040 Controllers:
   - MSA 2040 SAN Controller  
       -- 8Gb/16Gb FC connectivity and/or
       -- 1GbE/10GbE iSCSI connectivity
   - MSA 2040 SAS Controller
       -- 6Gb/12Gb SAS connectivity (MSA 2040 SAS controllers require mini-SAS HD cables)

The HPE MSA 2040 Storage ships standard with a license for 64 snapshots for increased data protection. There is also an optional license for 512 snapshots. The HPE MSA 2040 can also replicate data between arrays (P2000 G3, MSA 1040 SAN and/or MSA 2040 SAN Model only using FC or iSCSI protocol) with the optional Remote Snap feature.

The HPE MSA 2040 SKU’s are now ENERGY STAR certified. ENERGY STAR certified products are energy efficient which result in cost savings via reduced energy consumption and regulatory rebates.

As a part of gaining ENERGY STAR certification, MSA 2040 SKUs were required to change such that Hewlett Packard Enterprise and our customers can delineate between product shipped before the EPA recognized the MSA 2040 as ENERGY STAR compliant and arrays shipped after the MSA 2040 obtaining the official certification. 

No physical changes were made to the MSA 2040 or any of its components to pass the ENERGY STAR
compliance testing other than SKU numbering and labels (physical and electronic). There are no physical,  form, fit or function differences between the older and the ENERGY STAR compliant HPE MSA 2040 SKU’s. 

No new qualification or testing is required in order to use/substitute the new ENERGY STAR certified SKU’s.
