HP offers many different kinds of Storage Blades. Some of the most popular types of Storage Blades would be Direct Attached Storage Blades, Shared Storage Blades, NAS/SAN Gateway Storage Blades, as well as Tape Drive Storage Blades.
HP Direct Attached Storage Blades
The SB40c Storage Blade delivers direct attached storage for

disk drives. The SB40c features an
onboard Smart Array P400 controller. This controller contains a 256MB battery-backed cache that will give you
increased performance as well as data protection. Because the backplane of this storage blade
provides a PCI Express connection adjacent to the c-Class server blade, it
enables high performance storage access without the need for any additional
cables. The SB40c Storage Blade can also
be used for shared storage if you use HP LeftHand P4000 Virtual SAN Appliance
