MSA P2000 G3 with SSD

Hi all

After downloading the nearly the hole internet I still have no answer about the usage of SSD in a MSA P2000 G3.

(No, google was not helpful)

- are SSD working or not, and if not, what are the technical reasons for this limitations?

 

I know, HP as larger Subsystems with support for SSD's or the brand new Generation of MSA devices. However, the P2000 G3 are only 2 years old, new subsystem are out of question.

 

 

Thank you for your support!

 

Greetings

Stefan

Hi,

http://www8.hp.com/us/en/products/disk-storage/product-detail.html?oid=4118559#!tab=specs

no SSDs listed in the quickspecs.

It's probably because one or two SSD would max out the controllers..

No SSD in the quickspecs of the P2000 G3, but in the specs of the MSA2040:

Controller upgrade should be possible:

 

 

 

"... Owners of a P2000 G3 array are able to do data-in-place controller upgrades to the new MSA 2040 array...."


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
