Novell Technology Partner

product details

The DL380 G4 Packaged Cluster with MSA1000 combines the power and reliability of the ProLiant DL380 G4 server with the high performance and scalability of the MSA1000 storage system. In standard configurations, the DL380 G4 Packaged Cluster with MSA1000 offers the convenience of pre-installed storage and server components in a single package. The innovative shipping box simply opens and allows for quick setup while leaving the servers and storage readily accessible in the Packaged Cluster 8U fixture.

Colorful configuration and setup guides quickly explain the process of connecting storage, networking and power cables. Once initial setup has been completed, the packaged cluster may be quickly re-packaged for deployment at another site or facility, or simply removed from the 8U packaged cluster fixture and installed in an HP rack with the enclosed universal rail kits.

The MSA1000 combines the array controller shelf and the drive shelf, which holds up to fourteen 1" universal disk drives in a single 4U rackmount cabinet. More storage can be easily deployed with the addition of up to two HP StorageWorks MSA30 disk enclosures with space for forty-two drives giving maximum storage capacity of 12 TB when using the new 300 GB drives.

The packaged cluster may be used with Microsoft Windows® Server 2003, Windows 2000, Novell and Linux operating systems for standard and clustered configurations. The performance and scalability of the MSA1000 allows for up to 18 additional ProLiant servers to be connected providing maximum return on investment and minimal storage management costs.
