More Information

The Dell 161-BBVS is a 20 terabyte (TB) SAS hard drive with a 12 Gbps SAS interface. It is designed to be hot-swappable, meaning it can be replaced without shutting down the system it is installed in. This drive is intended for use in data storage systems where capacity and performance are needed. It has a faster data transfer rate than the previous generation SAS interface because of the 12Gbps SAS interface. The SAS interface provides faster data transfer rate, better reliability and scalability over SATA. It's ideal for use in enterprise-level servers, storage systems, and data centers.

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. Additionally, 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.

Performance & Compatibility

The Dell 20TB 7.2K Near Line SAS-12GBPS 512e Hot-plug hard drive is a high-capacity storage device that 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.

It's also important to note 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.

This drive is a 7.2K RPM drive which is optimized for bulk data storage and near-line storage applications where data is accessed less frequently than primary storage. This type of drive has a lower cost per GB compared to 15K or 10K drives and is suitable for archiving, backups, and cold data storage.

Backup & Restore Facilities

Backing up and restoring data on a Dell 20TB 7.2K RPM Near Line SAS-12GBPS 512e Hot-plug hard drive can be done using various methods depending on the type of data and the needs of the organization.

One common method is to use software-based backup tools such as Windows Backup or third-party backup software that can create image-based or file-based backups of the data stored on the hard drive. These backups can be stored on another hard drive, on a network-attached storage (NAS) device, or in the cloud. This method allows for regular backups of the data, and the ability to restore the data in case of a hard drive failure or other data loss.

Another common method is to use hardware-based backup solutions such as a RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) system, which can provide data redundancy and protection against hard drive failure. This method allows for continuous data protection and eliminates the need for regular backups.

For more critical data, it's recommended to use additional backup methods such as tape backup, cloud backup, and disaster recovery solutions.

When it comes to restore the data, it can be done by using the backup software or the RAID system that was used to create the backup, or by using the restore function of the operating system or the RAID controller.

It's always a good idea to test the restore process in a non-production environment to ensure that the restore process is working correctly, and that the data can be restored in case of an emergency.
