More Information

The Dell 161-BBVP 20TB 7.2K RPM Near Line SAS-12GBPS 512e Hot-plug hard drive is a high-capacity, high-performance storage device that is designed for use in enterprise-level servers and storage systems.

In terms of interface, the drive uses the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface, which is a high-performance and reliable interface that is commonly used in data centers and other enterprise environments. It should be compatible with any system or device that supports the SAS interface.

The hard drive is a NL (Nearline) form factor. NL hard drives are designed to offer high-performance and high-capacity storage at a lower cost per GB than traditional enterprise-level hard drives, they are typically used in applications that require high storage density and high-performance data transfer. It should be compatible with any system or device that can accommodate a NL form factor hard drive.

In terms of rotation speed, the hard drive has a rotation speed of 7.2k RPM which is standard for high-performance hard drives, it should be compatible with any system or device that supports this rotation speed.

This Item which is an advanced format that uses a larger physical block size (4,096 bytes) than the traditional 512-byte block size. This allows for more efficient use of disk space and can improve performance. It should be compatible with any system or device that

Exceptional Compatibility

The Dell 20TB SAS-12GBPS 512e Hot-plug hard drive is compatible with Dell PowerEdge servers that support hot-plug hard drives, SAS-12Gbps hard drives, and have a SAS interface. This drive is also compatible with systems that support the SAS-3 standard, which allows for faster data transfer speeds and improved performance.

It is important to check the compatibility list provided by Dell's website to ensure the drive is compatible with your specific Dell PowerEdge server model. The server's BIOS and RAID controller must also be compatible with the drive and the server must have the necessary power and cooling to support the additional storage capacity.

That this drive is a 512-byte emulation drive, which means it is designed to emulate a 512-byte sector size to maintain backward compatibility with legacy systems that are not designed to handle the larger 4K sector size.

Make sure the server's BIOS and RAID controller are compatible with the drive and that the server has the necessary power and cooling to support the additional storage capacity. It's also important to note that this drive is hot-plug capable, so it can be inserted or removed from the server while it is running without the need to power down the server, which allows for easier maintenance and less downtime.

High Performance

The performance of a Dell 20TB SAS-12 Gbps hard drive would be considered good for a hard disk drive. The SAS-12 Gbps interface is a newer and faster interface than SATA, which will provide better overall performance. The high storage capacity of 20TB is ideal for tasks that require a lot of storage space such as backups, archiving, and media storage.

However, it's worth noting that hard drives, in general, have slower read-write performance compared to solid-state drives (SSDs) due to the mechanical nature of their data access. The drive's performance will also depend on the speed of its rotation, which is not specified in this model. Typically, hard drives with faster RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) will have better performance than those with slower RPM.

It's recommended to check the product specification and reviews before purchasing the Dell 20TB SAS-12 Gbps hard drive and evaluate if it is suitable for the intended usage. Keep in mind that the performance of the drive will also depend on the RAID configuration, controller, and the workload. Additionally, it's important to make sure that the system where the drive is going to be installed is compatible with the drive and can support the SAS 12 Gbps interface. It's also worth noting that the performance of hard drive alone does not define the overall performance of the system, it's important to check the performance of the RAID controller, the data buffer and the system's memory.
