We are giving specifications below, why one should consider procuring HPE 3TB-7.2K RPM SAS-12GBPS Hard Drive features, a general overview, description, performance specification, relevant images, a competitive price infographic, and technical information about the 846528-H21 model with compatibility.

Introduction to 3TB Hard Drive

The 846528-H21 HPE 3TB 7.2K RPM SAS 12GBPS LFF Midline Hard Drive is a high-capacity storage device designed for use in HPE servers and storage systems. With a storage capacity of 3 terabytes, it is capable of storing large amounts of data, making it ideal for a wide range of applications, including data backup, archiving, and content storage.

A 3TB hard drive is a type of hard disk drive that can store up to 3 terabytes (3,000 gigabytes) of data. This makes it an excellent choice for users who require a large amount of storage space for their data, such as businesses or individuals who work with large files like high-resolution images, videos, or 3D models.

The 7.2K RPM speed indicates that the hard drive spins at 7,200 revolutions per minute, which is a mid-range speed that balances performance and power consumption. The SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface is a type of high-speed data transfer technology that provides fast and reliable data transfer rates of up to 12Gbps. The LFF (Large Form Factor) designation means that the hard drive is designed to fit in larger drive bays, typically used in servers and storage systems.

Installation and Maintenance

The installation and maintenance of the 846528-H21 HPE 3TB 7.2K RPM SAS 12GBPS LFF Midline Hard Drive is a straightforward process. Here are the steps to follow:


  • Before installing the hard drive, ensure that you have the necessary tools and safety equipment.
  • Turn off the server or storage system that the hard drive will be installed in.
  • Remove the cover of the server or storage system.
  • Identify the drive bays and locate an available one that is compatible with the 846528-H21 hard drive.
  • Carefully slide the hard drive into the bay, ensuring that it is firmly and securely in place.
  • Connect the appropriate cables to the hard drive, including the power cable and the SAS cable.
  • Replace the cover of the server or storage system.
  • Turn on the server or storage system and check that the hard drive is recognized and functioning properly.


Regular maintenance is important to ensure that the hard drive continues to function properly and reliably. Here are some tips for maintaining the 846528-H21 hard drive:

  • Keep the hard drive clean and free of dust and debris. Use a soft, dry cloth to gently clean the exterior of the drive.
  • Monitor the health of the hard drive using the appropriate tools and software. HPE provides tools for monitoring the health of its hard drives.
  • Check for firmware updates regularly and apply them as necessary. Firmware updates can improve performance and address known issues.
  • Replace the hard drive if it shows signs of failure or if it is no longer meeting your storage needs.

By following these guidelines, you can ensure that your 846528-H21 HPE 3TB 7.2K RPM SAS 12GBPS LFF Midline Hard Drive is installed and maintained properly, and that it continues to perform reliably over its lifetime.

Advanced Data Protection and Security

The 846528-H21 HPE 3TB 7.2K RPM SAS 12GBPS LFF Midline Hard Drive includes a number of advanced data protection and security features, which are designed to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the data stored on the drive. Some of these features include:

  • Data-at-Rest Encryption: The hard drive supports hardware-based encryption of data at rest, using the AES 256-bit encryption standard. This helps to protect the data stored on the drive from unauthorized access, even if the drive is stolen or otherwise removed from the server or storage system.
  • Secure Erase: The hard drive includes a built-in Secure Erase feature, which allows the user to permanently and securely erase all data stored on the drive. This is useful when the hard drive is being decommissioned or repurposed, to prevent sensitive data from falling into the wrong hands.
  • S.M.A.R.T. Monitoring: The hard drive supports S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology), which allows the drive to monitor its own health and detect potential problems before they can cause data loss. This can help to prevent data loss due to hardware failures or other issues.
  • Advanced Error Correction: The hard drive includes advanced error correction capabilities, which help to detect and correct errors in the data stored on the drive. This can help to ensure the integrity of the data and prevent data loss due to data corruption.
  • Firmware Security: The hard drive includes security features designed to prevent unauthorized access to the drive's firmware, which could potentially be used to compromise the security of the data stored on the drive.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

The Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard drives have become increasingly popular for their increasing use in high-end workstations and servers. These drives are employed in consumer desktops and modern servers for their speed and reliability. Enterprises have made the SAS hard drives their de-facto standard. Now, the 12Gbps speed throws the usefulness of these drives up a notch.

Most professional hosting providers now use SAS 12Gbps hard drives for data production. These drives have proven useful in high input/output operations and critical website functions. Users trust these drives because there is no risk of data loss, corruption, or downtime.

Faster Throughput

SAS 12Gbps drives read, write, and process data within split seconds. The latest 12Gbps disks use the latest RAID hardware technology to offer faster data transfer and recovery rates. They are perfect for sequential data, high workloads, and random IOPS alike.

This function allows them to be best suited for servers that have 100 percent duty cycles. They do not only work with desktops and PCs, but they can read/write data 24/7.

Higher Performance

SAS 12Gbps HDDs have received utmost attention in the market as a result of its high performance. These performance benefits allow it to be useful for a wide variety of applications. For instance, a SAS 12Gbps connection can support up to four wide lanes per connection.

Connecting JBOD with these SAS drives can support up to 1200MB/s. These high-performance drives do not only help handle large workloads; they also offer cost-effective expansion to an already robust system.

Also, each 12Gbps high-performance SAS drives can offer users a rotational speed of up to 15000 rpm.

They provide a great bandwidth enough to perform efficiently. The robust performance of SAS 12Gbps drives clearly a worthy investment for improved performance of servers and desktops. They provide very large amounts of storage options and a cost-effective choice for users.

Utmost Flexibility

The flexibility is one of the best benefits of SAS 12Gbps drives. These drives have configured flexibility, which allows them to work perfectly with several devices without modification or changes. Many of them feature a Universal Serial controller for seamless system support.

SAS 12Gbps hard drives can also be partitioned in a storage pool and assigned to servers for work-intensive applications. They are a perfect fit for server systems, including reservation systems, medical imaging, and more!

Only this range of SAS hard drives can provide users with the best worlds of flexibility. This way, allowing them to support use with other drives.

Increased Availability

12Gbps SAS-based storage systems have the benefit of dual-port capability. This allows them to provide a redundant path to the drives in case of controller failover. These drives also operate on separate point-to-point connections. That way, it is rare for drive connection loss to affect them.

SAS 12Gbps HDDs are built to handle the rigors of heavy workloads and enterprise use. They also safeguard data integrity, thanks to their ability to comprehensively verify data and correct errors.
