The HP Smart Array P830 Controller is a full height, half length, 12 Gb/s SAS capable, PCIe 3.0, RAID controller that provides enterprise class storage performance for select HP ProLiant Gen8 rack servers and tower servers. It features 16 physical SAS/SATA lanes each supporting 12 Gb/s or 6 Gb/s SAS or SATA protocol. Advanced storage functionality, such as Advanced Data Mirroring, Advanced Data Guarding, dual domain, makes it easier to protect the data.
The P830 Controller supports up to 16 drives without expander; for example on a DL38x Gen8 server that comes with 8 SFF drives can scale their internal storage by adding an additional 8 SFF drive cage connected to Smart Array P830
Seamless upgrades to and from other HP Smart Array controllers.
16 SAS/SATA physical links distributed across 2 double wide Mini SAS 8i connectors for attachment to internal drive backplanes
12 Gb/s SAS performance when used on a DL580 Gen8 with 12 Gb/s devices (HDD or SSD)
6 Gb/s SAS technology delivers up to 600 MB/s per physical link.
6 Gb/s SATA technology delivers up to 600 MB/s for directly attached SATA drives.
Mix-and-match SAS and SATA drives. Deploy drive technology as needed to fit the computing environment.
PCI-e 3.0 8x host interface provides up to 8 GiB/s in each direction
4GB battery-backed write cache (not all of which is available for user data)
Standard on the P830 are RAID 6 ADG, RAID 60 ADG, RAID 1 ADM, Capacity Expansion, mirror split, recombine, and rollback in Online Mode, Drive Erase, Performance Optimization-Degraded Reads and Read Coalescing, Move/Delete any individual LUNS and Online Split Mirror.
Capable of supporting both legacy and UEFI boot operation on a DL580 Gen8 server
Recovery ROM protects against ROM corruption
The HP SSD Smart Path feature included in the Smart Array software stack improves SSD read for all RAID levels and RAID 0 write operations by optimizing the path to each SSD attached to the controller.
The HP SmartCache feature (already included with the P830 controller) is a controller-based read caching solution in a DAS environment that caches the most frequently accessed data ("hot" data) onto lower latency SSDs to dynamically accelerate application workloads.
The HP Secure Encryption, available as an option, is a Smart Array controller-based data encryption solution for ProLiant Gen 8 servers that protects sensitive, mission critical data.
Consistent management software among most current shipping HP Smart Array products, including HP Smart Storage Administrator (HP SSA), Systems Insight Manager (SIM), Array Diagnostic Utility (ADU), and Intelligent Provisioning
