Simple and Secure OS Mirroring through Dedicated Hardware RAID 1
HPE NS204i-p NVMe OS Boot Device is a complete, turn-key optimized OS boot device that is easy to deploy – no need to configure or format, stick it in and it works, no GUI or user setup required.
Pre-configured RAID 1 OS boot utilizes a single stand-up PCIe slot to safely isolate OS from user data on today’s most popular virtualized environments.
Uses native in-box driver support for VMware®, Linux®, and Windows® OS.
Supports secure firmware boot for simple and secure setup of HPE ProLiant Gen10 and Gen10 Plus, as well as HPE Apollo Gen10 and Gen10 Plus servers.
Enables all drive bays be used for data, greatly reducing server complexity, while providing an economical way for booting in virtualized environments.
State-of-the-Art, Hardware Accelerated RAID 1 NVMe OS Boot Device
HPE NS204i-p NVMe OS Boot Device combines the latest generation NVMe technology and hardware RAID 1 redundancy in support of OS applications.
Self-contained Hewlett Packard Enterprise PCIe Gen3 boot device is integrated with two HPE 480 GB enterprise-class NVMe M.2 SSDs allowing you to customize configuration.
Hewlett Packard Enterprise enterprise-class NVMe M.2 SSDs delivers enhanced data protection with power loss protection and error correction.
Based on NVMe technology, the HPE NS204i-p NVMe OS Boot Device delivers up to 4x times faster read capability than legacy SATA-based boot solutions.1
Increased Storage Density and Dedicated HW RAID 1 Resiliency for OS Boot
HPE NS204i-p NVMe OS Boot Device and HPE USB Flash drive with dual 32GB microSD cards on-board RAID 1 free up internal server storage bays enabling greater platform storage density.
HPE OS Boot Devices provides separate, redundant disk solutions for the OS that enables a more robust, optimized compute platform.
Dedicated Hardware (HW) RAID 1 OS boot mirroring eliminates downtime due to a failed OS drive – if one drive fails the business continues running.
HPE OS Boot Devices are certified for VMware and Microsoft Azure® Stack HCI for increased flexibility.
Low Cost RAID 1 Boot Solution for VMware Environments
HPE USB Flash drive with dual 32 GB microSD cards and on-board RAID 1 Boot Devices deliver a redundant OS boot without consuming server storage drive bays or consuming an internal PCIe slot.
Lower cost alternative to traditional boot methods that require multiple HDDs or SSDs with an array controller.
32 GB capacity supports VMware vSphere v6.0 and later deployments up to 8 TiB (DRAM sizing of solution deployment).
Integrated on-board RAID 1 for customers requiring “dual boot” solution.
Engineered with enterprise-class high endurance NAND for non-stop data center environments.
