Smart Array P410i License Key 12
The Smart Array P410i license key 12 is a software license that enables some advanced features and functionalities of the Smart Array P410i controller. The Smart Array P410i controller is an 8-port Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) RAID controller that supports up to 24 drives depending on the server implementation.
Some of the features and functionalities that are enabled by the license key 12 are:
RAID 6 (ADG) and RAID 60: These are RAID levels that provide fault tolerance for two or more disk failures by using distributed parity. RAID 6 and RAID 60 can improve the performance and reliability of data storage compared to RAID 5 and RAID 50.
Advanced Capacity Expansion (ACE): This is a feature that allows online expansion of a logical drive by adding new physical drives or replacing existing drives with larger ones. ACE can reduce the downtime and complexity of capacity expansion operations.
Secure drive erase: This is a feature that allows secure and irreversible deletion of data from a physical drive. Secure drive erase can prevent unauthorized access to sensitive data by overwriting it with random patterns.
Performance optimization: This is a feature that allows tuning of the controller settings to optimize the performance of different workloads. Performance optimization can improve the throughput and latency of data transfer by adjusting parameters such as stripe size, cache ratio, and read/write policies.
The license key 12 is not sold anymore by HP, but it can be obtained from some third-party sources or through an evaluation license. The evaluation license is a demo license that lasts for 60 days and can be installed on any Smart Array P410i controller. The evaluation license can be found on GitHub or other online platforms. However, the evaluation license may expire or become invalid after some time, which may affect the functionality and performance of the controller. Therefore, it is recommended to use a permanent license key if possible.
The license key 12 can be installed on the Smart Array P410i controller using the HP Smart Storage Administrator (SSA) utility or the HP Smart Array Configuration Utility (ACU). The SSA utility is a web-based tool that can be accessed from any browser, while the ACU is a command-line tool that can be run from a terminal. Both tools can display the status and details of the license key, such as the feature name, license type, key version, key created, key installed, and days in demo license.
The Smart Array P410i license key 12 is a valuable software license that can enhance the functionality and performance of the Smart Array P410i controller. However, it is not easy to obtain or maintain a valid license key due to its limited availability and expiration. Therefore, users who want to use the advanced features of the controller should consider alternative solutions, such as upgrading to a newer controller model or using different RAID levels or software tools.
