HPE0-J76 question 20 discussion

answered

You need to configure an HPE 3PAR StoreServ to provide 16 Gb/s host connectivity, peer
motion capabilities, and FCoE/iSCSI. Which configuration satisfies these requirements?

  • A. HPE 3PAR 8200 2-node with 4-port 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel Cards
  • B. HPE 3PAR 8400 4-node with 2-port 1SCSI/FC0E and 4-port 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel Cards
  • C. HPE 3PAR 8200 2-node with 2-port 1SCSI/FC0E and 4-port 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel Cards
  • D. HPE 3PAR 8400 2-node with 2-port iSCSI/FCoE and 4-port 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel Cards

This question is a bit perplexing to me. All 3PARs come with minimum 4 16Gb/s front end ports right off the bat. Then add the iSCSI ports to the nodes (1 card for each node). Then each node will have 2 16Gb/s ports and 2 iSCSI/FCoE adapters. HPE Sizing tool allows this configuration to be built. https://www.hpe.com/h20195/v2/GetPDF.aspx/c04607918.pdf - See Page 15. Based on this, I think the correct answer is C, the 8200 2-node. Can someone offer any insight?

There is a requirement for Peer motion. This might trigger the need for more FC/iSCSI ports. 2-node configuration addresses redundancy at controller and SAN level and performance using multiple host ports.
