Simple and Secure OS Mirroring through Dedicated Hardware RAID 1
HPE NS204i-d NVMe OS Boot Device is a complete, turn-key optimized OS boot device that is easy to deploy – no need to configure or format, simply insert and it works, no GUI or user setup required.
Pre-configured RAID 1 OS boot utilizes a single Synergy designed card that connect to PCIe connection under Drive Cages 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 Synergy 480 , Gen10 Plus Compute Modules.
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-d 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 Synergy 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 Synergy design with NVMe technology, the HPE NS204i-d 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-d NVMe OS Boot Device and HPE USB Flash drive with dual 32 GB 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.
Full HW 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.
Engineered with enterprise-class high endurance NAND for non-stop data center environments.
Integrated on-board RAID 1 for customers requiring “dual boot” solution.
