HPE SYNERGY D3940 STORAGE MODULE Product Details
The HPE Synergy D3940 storage module is a small form factor (SFF) drive bay module, designed for use in HPE Synergy frames. Through the HPE Synergy SAS connection module it provides composable direct attached storage for compute modules in a single frame. Synergy storage is optimized for use as either a direct attached storage array or as software-defined storage, using HPE StoreVirtual VSA or similar solutions.HPE Synergy D3940 Storage Modules support different hard drives. Synergy storage supports a variety of workloads by permitting multiple drive types to be configured in the same storage module. Storage modules connect to compute modules within a frame through the Synergy SAS connection module. Any number of drive bays in a storage module can be composed with any compute module, allowing for efficient utilization of available drives. Synergy storage can scale to SFF drives with storage modules in a single HPE Synergy frame. Adding a second I/O adapter and second SAS connection module provides a redundant path to SAS drives inside the storage module, ensuring high availability. The modular design of the Synergy D3940 storage module allows it to slide out from the frame to service drives or I/O adapters without interrupting operation of other drives within the module.The HPE Synergy D3940 storage module provides a large, efficient pool of storage resources, which can be allocated to meet changing server workloads and business needs. Synergy storage enables fast bandwidths and performance. within the frame, an administrator is able to create virtual JBODs for any compute module, remap connections, or change personalities; all done with stored profiles. together, the d3940 storage module and SAS connection Module fully integrate with other HPE Synergy hardware and software components and are managed and configured with HPE Synergy Composer. The D3940 storage module provides advanced storage density and flexibility to configure storage to meet business needs. A modular design simplifies serviceability and can be configured with dual HPE Synergy SAS flexible storage I/O adapters for high availability.
