The HPE Smart Storage Administrator (HPE SSA) is a web-based application that helps you configure, manage, diagnose, and monitor HPE ProLiant Smart Array Controllers and now other storage devices as well, such as host bus adapters (HBAs), HPE Storage controllers, and future devices such as SCSI Express drives, and SAS switch devices. HPE SSA replaces the existing HP Array Configuration Utility, or ACU, with an updated design and will deliver new features and functionality for various Smart Storage initiatives as they come online. HPE Smart Array Advanced Pack 1.0 and 2.0 features are now part of the baseline features of HPE SSA, with the appropriate firmware. HPE SSA will allow you to configure and manage your storage as before, but now with additional features, abilities, and supported devices. Existing ACU scripts should only need to make minimal changes such as calling the appropriate binary or executable in order to maintain compatibility.
