Featuring 16Tb of flash capacity included as standard and an all-inclusive software suite, the MSA 2052 provides affordable application acceleration, advanced data services and expanded data protection features to keep your business running.
Performance tiering & archive tiering - Aggregate disk groups to create disk tiers. The automated MSA engine will move data between tiers based on its characteristics and performance requirements (e.g. frequently accessed data will move to a high availability tier whereas infrequently used files will shift to an archive tier).
Snapshot and volume copy - MSA 1050 and 2050 arrays come with 64 snaps (upgradeable via add-on license) whereas the MSA 2052 comes with 512 snapshots as standard. Volume Copies create up to 128 point-in-time copies of data. Instantly recover and revert data from any previous Snapshot or Volume Copy with backup data snapped to disk or tape without a backup window.
Remote snaps - HPE MSA Remote Snap Software provides remote data replication capabilities for MSA storage arrays. Snapshots are used to both track the data to be replicated as well as establish differences in data updated on the master volume. This helps minimise the volumes of data in transfer. Create multiple local recovery points to complement daily backups, access data via a remote site and ensure business continuity if there’s a failure on your primary site.
Advanced data services suite - Comes as standard with the MSA 2052 and available as a purchasable option for the MSA 2050 and MSA 1050. The suite provides performance tiering and archive tiering software, 512 snapshots and volume copy and remote snaps.
