Do you need a direct attached or shared storage solution within your BladeSystem enclosure?
The SB40c Storage Blade delivers direct attached and shared storage for c-Class enclosures, with support for up to six hot-plug small form factor (SFF) SAS or SATA hard disk drives. The enclosure backplane provides a PCI Express connection to the adjacent c-Class server blade and enables high performance storage access without any additional cables. The SB40c Storage Blade features an onboard Smart Array P400 controller with 256 MB battery-backed write cache, for increased performance and data protection.
Use HP LeftHand P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance (VSA) software to turn the SB40c into an iSCSI SAN inside the BladeSystem enclosure. The P4000 VSA provides a scalable iSCSI SAN based on a clustered storage architecture, and includes remote replication capabilities, thin provisioning, and snapshots. Expand capacity within the same enclosure or additional enclosures.
