Re: What is the compaction ratio in hp msa 2050 ?

Hello @VARUNRATAKONDA,

Below are the few points which can be helpful to answer your query:

  • The compaction technology used in the MSA2050 is called thin provisioning.
  • There is no specific ratio, Thin Provisioning is a storage allocation scheme that automatically allocates storage as your applications need it.
  • Thin Provisioning allows storage allocation of physical storage resources only once they are consumed by an application. Thin Provisioning also allows over-provisioning of physical storage pool resources allowing ease of growth for volumes without predicting storage capacity upfront.
  • For more information on thin provisioning check the SMU reference guide for HPE MSA 2050:  Click here to access the SMU Reference Guide for HPE MSA 1050/2050. (Page 24)
