HP StorageWorks MSA 1510i provides mid-size businesses with an expandable solution that enables their data storage to keep pace with the rapid growth of business-critical information. Being a storage area network (SAN) external array with iSCSI interface, the product delivers a solution that allows customers to easily implement and manage a SAN as easily as their existing Ethernet network. The customers can take the internal disks out of HP ProLiant servers and move them into the MSA 1510i enclosure.
