More Information

The Dell 18TB 7.2K RPM SAS 12GBPS 512MB Buffer NL Hard Drive is a high-capacity, near-line hard drive designed for enterprise storage systems.

This Item has a storage capacity of 18 terabytes and a rotation speed of 7200 RPM. This provides faster data access times than slower-spinning drives, which can help improve the overall performance of the storage system.

The drive uses the SAS-12GBPS interface, which is a 12 Gbps SAS interface that supports the latest generation of SAS-based storage solutions. This interface provides faster data transfer speeds than SAS-6GBPS and SAS-3GBPS interfaces, allowing for faster data access and better performance when working with large data sets or when multiple users are accessing the data simultaneously.

The HDD also has a 512MB buffer which helps to improve the overall performance of the drive by allowing for faster data access.

This storage, which means it's suitable for less frequently accessed data, such as archival data, backups, and large media files. It's not as fast as "performance" storage but still faster than "capacity" storage.

Overall, the Dell 18TB 7.2K RPM SAS 12GBPS 512MB Buffer NL Hard Drive is a high-capacity, high-performance storage solution for enterprise-grade systems and applications that require large amounts of storage and fast data access for less frequently accessed data.

Drive Compatibility

The Dell 18TB SAS 12 Gbps hard drive with a 512MB buffer and "NL" (Nearline) designation is compatible with servers and storage systems that support SAS 12 Gbps interfaces and have a SAS backplane or controller. It is recommended that you check with your server or storage system vendor for specific compatibility information, as well as the firmware version of your SAS controller. It is also important to ensure that the drive is supported by your RAID controller as well as the RAID level you are using. The "NL" designation indicates that this drive is designed for nearline storage which typically refers to data archiving or backup storage, and may not be suitable for primary storage or high-performance workloads. It is also important to note that this drive is designed for use in enterprise and data center environments, and may not be compatible with consumer-grade computer systems. It is recommended to check the system documentation and ensure that the drive is supported by your RAID controller as well as the RAID level you are using.

Backup & Restore Facilities

To perform a backup and restore on a Dell 18TB SAS 12GBPS hard drive, you can use a variety of backup software options, such as Dell EMC Data Protection Suite, Dell EMC NetVault Backup, or third-party software like Veeam or Acronis. The specific steps will depend on the software you choose, but generally, the process involves creating a backup of the data on the hard drive, and then restoring the data to the hard drive from the backup.

Here's a general overview of the process:

  1. Install and configure the backup software on your system.
  2. Connect the Dell 18TB SAS 12GBPS hard drive to your system.
  3. Create a new backup job in the software and select the hard drive as the source of the backup.
  4. Choose the backup type (full, incremental, differential) and schedule the backup to run at a convenient time.
  5. Verify that the backup has completed successfully.
  6. To restore data, choose the restore option in the software, select the backup you want to restore from, and specify the location where you want to restore the data.

Please note that it is always a good idea to verify the integrity of the backup and also to have multiple copies of the backup stored in different locations to protect against data loss.
