HP H241 Smart Host Bus Adapter


The HP H241 Smart Host Bus Adapter is a 2X4 12Gb/s SAS external port HBA that provides users with the flexibility and speed expected from HP. The H241 Smart HBA is ideal for external connectivity to tape drives, shared storage, and external JBODs providing support for both 12G SAS and 6G SATA Hard Disk Drives. The H241 Smart HBA can also provide high performance for SSDs that do not require data protection. The H241 Smart Host Bus Adapter provides flexibility to run in HBA mode or simple RAID mode. When operating in simple RAID mode, it provides RAID 0, RAID 1, and RAID 5 with optional HP Secure Encryption capabilities. Unlike the HP Smart Array Controllers, the H241 does not offer any acceleration or support cache modules.
