Overview: The new Integrated Smart Array Controller is an intelligent array controller for entry-level hardware-based fault tolerance with support for all Ultra2 SCSI internal hard drives. The Integrated Smart Array controller provides one of the most cost effective alternatives to software-based RAID in the market today. Designed and integrated with Compaq ProLiant DL360 DL380 ML570 DL580 ProLiant 8500 and ProLiant 8500 Data Center solution servers the Integrated Smart Array controller provides worry-free data protection for all server internal storage needs (optional upgrade for the ProLiant ML370 and ProLiant ML570 servers).
Pre-Failure Warranty Means CIM not only reports when a drive is going to fail but allows replacement of failing drives prior to actual failure. Pre-Failure Warranty is available on Compaq ProLiant servers using Compaq Insight Manager 2.1 or later and covers Pentium® Pro processors ECC memory and server hard drives using Compaq Smart Array Controllers. Certain restrictions and exclusions apply. Consult the Compaq Customer Support Center for details.
