Cost-Effective SAS Storage Connectivity

  • The HPE Smart Array E208e-p SR Gen10 Controller is a cost effective enterprise-class controller that provides the basic building blocks for simple RAID storage solutions while delivering 12 Gb/s SAS connectivity on HPE ProLiant Gen10 Servers when connected to 12 Gb/s external storage devices.
  • Offers a low-cost solution to enable software-defined storage.
  • Connects to external just a bunch of disks (JBODs) and advanced external storage arrays.

Built-in reliability and security

  • The HPE Smart Array E208e-p SR Gen10 Controller protects data-at-rest on any drive attached to the controller with HPE Smart Array SR Secure Encryption (optional license).
  • Comply with regulations for sensitive data, such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley with HPE Smart Array SR Secure Encryption.
  • Preserve data integrity with HPE SmartSSD Wear Gauge, which alerts you to potential drive issues before a drive fails.

Improved Efficiency and Storage Management

  • The HPE Smart Array E208e-p SR Gen10 Controller has increased flexibility with Mixed Mode which operates in RAID and HBA simultaneously and eliminates the expense of having to purchase another controller.
  • Rapidly configure simple RAID volumes on servers with the UEFI storage configuration tool, which also facilitates scripting support to configure an array via iLO through RESTful interface.
  • Quickly set up, configure, and manage drives attached to the controller with HPE Smart Storage Administrator (SSA), an intuitive interface used to create RAID volumes, manage advanced controller features, and deploy Smart Array solutions.
