HPE NonStop storage I/O adapter, Storage CLIM

HPE Integrity NonStop systems deploy a storage subsystem based upon I/O controllers called Cluster I/O Modules (CLIMs) for access to disk and tape storage. The Storage CLIM is at the heart of the NonStop storage subsystem for HPE Integrity NonStop platforms. Standard Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) provides the technology and interconnect across the NonStop storage subsystem. The Storage CLIM also supports HPE XP storage arrays, and virtual and physical tape drives via Fibre Channel interconnect. In addition, Storage CLIM can connect to the HPE NonStop Virtualized BackBox over Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI).
AC-powered versions of the Storage CLIM are available for the AC-powered HPE Integrity NonStop X and HPE Integrity NonStop i systems. Storage CLIM is also offered in DC-powered and Network Equipment-Building System (NEBS) level-3 Compatible models for the DC-powered HPE Integrity NonStop X and HPE Integrity NonStop i systems.
The NonStop storage subsystem consists of two or more Storage CLIMs, SAS and Fibre Channel Host Bus Adapters (HBAs), two or more SAS disk enclosures, SAS small form factor (SFF) hard disk drives, SAS SFF solid state drives (SSDs), and associated cables. Each SAS disk enclosure can support up to 25 SFF drives in a combination of HDDs and SSDs.
