The HP Smart Array P410 is an 8 Port Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) RAID controller. The P410 is designed for RAID applications and can be upgraded with the 512MB battery-backed write cache (BBWC) or 512MB / 1GB flash-backed write cache (FBWC) and the Smart Array Advanced Pack.
The SA-P410 Controller supports up to 24 drives depending on the server implementation. Additional drives can be supported with cache and connection to the HP SAS Expander Card.
Seamless upgrades from past generations and upgrades to next generation HP high performance and high capacity Serial Attached SCSI Smart Array controllers.
6Gb/s SAS technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth and contains full compatibility with 3Gb/s SATA technology.
x8 PCI Express gen 2 host interface technology delivers high performance and data bandwidth up to 2 GB/s maximum bandwidth.
Modular, easy-to-upgrade design lets you optimize performance by upgrading from 40-bit 256MB cache to 72-bit 512MB battery-backed write cache (BBWC) or 72-bit 512MB/1G Flash Backed Write Cache (FBWC).
Addition of the battery or flash backed cache upgrade enables array expansion, logical drive extension, RAID migration, and stripe size migration.
Mix-and-match SAS and SATA hard drives, lets you deploy drive technology as needed to fit your computing environment.
