Introducing HP Smart Storage Administrator for ProLiant Gen8

Xani on ‎10-02-2013 09:21 AM

Bill Kilcoyne, HP Smart Storage Software Development Manager, introduces you to HP Smart Storage Administrator or HP SSA.  HP SSA has the ability to configure and manage both physical and logical drives, but also improves the experience for managing your direct attach storage, monitoring or diagnosing potential problems, and provides more features to improve your overall storage performance.

 

HP Smart Storage Administrator (HP SSA) is a single interface that configures and manages a host’s HP Smart Arrays and other storage devices, such as host bus adapters (HBAs) and SAS switch devices.  HP SSA replaces the existing HP Array Configuration Utility, or ACU, with an updated design and will deliver new features and functionality for various Smart Storage initiatives as they come online.  HP Smart Array Advanced Pack 2.0 features such as RAID 6 will also be part of the baseline features of HP SSA.

 

In addition to the enhanced GUI, HP SSA now includes additional features such as the Status Dashboard, additional device information, and ability to be run on your mobile device.  

 

Users can continue to use existing ACU script with minimal changes.

 

HP SSA helps you improve your customer experience in configuring, managing, maintaining, and measuring performance of direct attach storage environments.  In this three part video series, Bill will be reviewing HP SSA Enhanced GUI, Maintenance/Monitoring and Performance.
