|Fault Prevention||The following features offer detection of possible failures before they occur, allowing preventive action to
Predictive drive failure detects possible drive failure before it occurs, allowing replacement of the component before failure occurs.
Background surface scan checks drives during inactive periods and automatically remaps bad sectors, ensuring data integrity.
HPE SmartSSD Wear Gauge reports the amount of lifetime remaining on your SSDs.
|Fault Recovery||Minimizes downtime, reconstructs data, and facilitates a quick recovery from drive failure
Recovery ROM: This feature protects the user from a firmware image corruption by storing a redundant
copy of the firmware image. If the active firmware image becomes corrupt, the controller will use the
redundant firmware image and continue operating.
On-Line Spares: There is no limit to the number of spare drives that can be installed prior to drive failure.
If a failure occurs, recovery begins with an On-Line Spare and data is reconstructed automatically.
DRAM ECC detects and corrects data bit errors.
|HPE SSD Smart Path||The HPE SSD Smart Path feature included in the Smart Array software stack improves Solid State Disk (SSD) read performance by up to 4x. HPE SSD Smart Path chooses the optimum path to the SSD and accelerates reads for all RAID levels and RAID 0 writes.|
|HPE Smart Array SR SmartCache||The HPE Smart Array SR SmartCache feature is a controller-based read and write caching solution in a
DAS environment that caches the most frequently accessed data ("hot" data) onto lower latency SSDs to
dynamically accelerate application workloads. The SmartCache architecture is flexible and supports any
HPE ProLiant Gen10 HDD for bulk storage and SSD as an accelerator. SmartCache is deployed and
managed using the HPE Smart Storage Administrator (HPE SSA). SmartCache is enabled on this
controller and no license is required.

|HPE Smart Array SR Secure Encryption (optional license)||HPE Smart Array SR Secure Encryption is a Smart Array controller-based data encryption solution that
protects sensitive, mission critical data. This is an enterprise-class encryption solution for data-at-rest on
any drives attached to the HPE Smart Array controllers including data on the controller cache. Secure
Encryption requires an optional license per server (see Related Options for more information on the
The solution is available for both local and remote key management mode deployments. Local Key Management Mode is focused on single server deployment where there is one Master key per controller that is managed by the user. Remote Key Management Mode is for enterprise wide deployments from just a few servers to thousands of servers.
