HPE MSA 2060 Storage

An affordable, flash-ready hybrid storage system that provides cost-effective application acceleration.

Highly scalable and excellent at handling compute intensive workloads, MSA 2060 storage arrays are ideal for small businesses who require an entry-price system that still packs a serious punch.



A flash-ready hybrid storage system, the HPE MSA 2060 is built and designed to provide simple, cost-effective application acceleration for small and remote office deployments. It combines affordability with simplicity, flexibility and a bevvy of advanced features not often found in an entry-priced array.

You are able to start small and scale as required, with any combination of SSDS, high performance Enterprise SAS HDDs, or lower-cost Midline SAS HDDs. Excelling with even the most demanding workloads. the new MSA 2060 is up to 45% faster than the previous generation and can provide up to 325,000 IOPS.

The HPE MSA 2060 SAN Storage range offers a wide range of new features, including:

  • The new 6th generation MSA storage architecture delivers a modernised HW platform with additional resources for features like Tiering 2.0, a new RAID protection scheme (MSA-DP+), brand new task-optimised web interface and super optimised data management through a newly introduced RESTful interface.
  • Enhanced array performance that delivers more IOPS, bandwidth and backend connectivity. Experience an up to 45% increase on IOPS and up to 70% improvement on sequential throughput over the previous generation.
  • Able to provide over 325,000 IOPS for cost-effective application acceleration for small/medium sized businesses.
  • New HPE MSA 18TB SAS 7.2K LFF HDD available in single drive and six-pack bundles options.

MSA-DP+ RAID-Based Data Protection

MSA-DP+ is a RAID-based data protection level that has been newly introduced with 6th Gen MSA Storage systems. It maximises flexibility and delivers built-in spare capacity. Performance is optimised with the elimination of idle spares. MSA-DP+ enables for quick rebuilds, large storage pools and easy expansion.

Enhanced Simplicity

Increased simplicity with a new disk group type (MSA-DP+) that boosts availability, significantly reduces RAID rebuild times, enhances performance, simplifies setup and provides a more granular expansion of disk pools.

Better Performance

Performance is significantly improved (up to 45% faster) on the prior generation with more IOPs, bandwidth and backend connectivity. Experience an up to 70% improvement on sequential throughput.
