Hi Saju,
Features are:

Reliable: Provides extreme reliability with no single-point-of-failure and redundant hot-swappable components. The XP12000 is constantly being monitored by HP for any potential issues, so they can be proactively addressed before they can cause a problem.
Available: All components are redundant and hot-swappable to provide extreme reliability and availability, including: disk drives, processors, I/O interfaces, power supplies, batteries, fans, and control processors.
Scalable: Scalable from 9 to 1152 disk drives for over 332 TB of internal capacity, 30 PB of external capacity, 128 GB of cache, and to more than double the internal performance of the XP1024--all online with no interruptions to applications and without requiring a forklift upgrade.
Performance: Uses an advanced crossbar fault tolerant architecture resulting in outstanding levels of random and sequential I/O operations for database, OLTP, Oracle, SAP, and Exchange workloads.
Heterogeneous: Supports multiple operating systems, including HP-UX, Windows, Linux, OpenVMS, NonStop, Mainframe, Tru64, AIX, and Solaris.
Open Connectivity: Fibre Channel, FICON, and ESCON connectivity
Flexible: Supports a mixture of disk drives configured as RAID 1 (2D+2D), RAID 5 (3D+1P, 7D+1P), and RAID 6 (6D2P).
Manageable: Multiple arrays and hundreds of terabytes can be managed from a single station, by existing staff, with no increase in staffing.
Value: Excellent price/performance ratio, increased productivity via higher throughput speeds and zero downtime, compact footprint to conserve floor space, and easy management.
