All PowerStore models have the same connectivity options. The following figure shows these connectivity options as seen from the rear of the unit:
PowerStore node A is the bottom node, while PowerStore node B is the top node. Each node has one embedded module (red rectangles) with management and SAS expansion ports and a four-port Mezzanine card for connections such as NAS or cluster interconnects. This card can be used for NAS/NFS and the SAP HANA NAS persistence and shared file system /hana/shared. The system configures all NAS server interfaces on the first two bonded ports on this four-port card. This configuration cannot be changed. Because both bonded ports are used for file traffic, link loss on a single port does not affect connectivity to the NAS server.
Each node has two additional slots for four-port I/O modules (green rectangles). These slots must be used for SAP HANA client FC connections, which are either 16 Gb/s or 32 Gb/s FC.
