Data Encryption and Security

The Dell 342-6079 480GB SATA Read Intensive MLC 3GBPS 2.5Inch Form Factor SSD includes data encryption and security features to help protect data stored on the drive. Here are some of the key features related to data encryption and security:

  • Self-encrypting drive (SED): The 342-6079 is a SED, which means that it includes hardware-based encryption capabilities to help protect data on the drive. SEDs use encryption algorithms to scramble data stored on the drive, making it unreadable without the proper authentication.
  • TCG Opal 2.0: The 342-6079 is compliant with the TCG Opal 2.0 standard, which is a widely accepted specification for self-encrypting drives. This standard ensures interoperability with other storage devices and systems that support the standard.
  • AES 256-bit encryption: The 342-6079 uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption, which is a highly secure encryption algorithm widely used in the industry.
  • Secure erase: The drive includes a secure erase feature that can help ensure that data is completely erased from the drive. This feature can be useful when repurposing or retiring a drive to ensure that sensitive data is not accessible.

Types of Solid State Drive

Solid-state drives (SSDs) can be classified into several types based on their performance characteristics and intended use cases. Here are some common types of SSDs:

  • SLC (single-level cell): SLC SSDs store one bit of data per cell, which provides high endurance and fast read/write speeds. However, they are expensive and have lower storage capacity compared to other types of SSDs.
  • MLC (multi-level cell): MLC SSDs store two or more bits of data per cell, which increases storage capacity but reduces endurance and write speeds compared to SLC SSDs. MLC SSDs are a common choice for consumer and enterprise applications.
  • TLC (triple-level cell): TLC SSDs store three bits of data per cell, which further increases storage capacity but reduces endurance and write speeds compared to MLC SSDs. TLC SSDs are commonly used in consumer applications.
  • QLC (quad-level cell): QLC SSDs store four bits of data per cell, which maximizes storage capacity but further reduces endurance and write speeds compared to TLC SSDs. QLC SSDs are a common choice for consumer applications, particularly for storing large files such as videos or photos.
  • Read-intensive SSDs: Read-intensive SSDs, such as the Dell 342-6079, are designed for workloads that involve a high volume of read operations and low write operations. These SSDs typically have lower endurance but can provide faster read speeds compared to other types of SSDs.
  • Write-intensive SSDs: Write-intensive SSDs are designed for workloads that involve a high volume of write operations, such as databases or transactional systems. These SSDs typically have higher endurance but lower storage capacity compared to other types of SSDs.
  • Mixed-use SSDs: Mixed-use SSDs are designed for workloads that involve both read and write operations, and provide a balance of endurance, capacity, and performance.

Secure Scalability & Accessibility

The Dell 342-6079 480GB SATA Read Intensive MLC 3GBPS 2.5Inch Form Factor SSD provides secure scalability and accessibility for data storage needs.

With the Read Intensive MLC flash memory and SATA interface, the drive delivers consistent performance and fast data transfer rates, making it suitable for high-demand workloads that require frequent read operations. This provides secure and reliable storage for sensitive data.

In terms of scalability, the drive's 480GB capacity offers ample storage for most applications, and it can be used in combination with other drives for even greater storage capacity. Its small form factor also makes it easy to integrate into systems with limited space for storage.

In addition, the hot-pluggable design of the drive enables it to be easily swapped out and replaced in the event of hardware failure or for maintenance purposes, without the need to shut down the system.

Overall, the Dell 342-6079 SSD provides a secure, scalable, and accessible solution for data storage needs in a variety of applications.

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 SATA 3Gbps is a sample of the second revision of SATA technology and can also be referred to as SATA II. The SATA II has data transfer rates of 3Gbs per second and can reach a capacity of 300MB/s for HDDs and up to 550 MB/s for SSDs.

It took a lot of effort to improve the performance and speeds of solid-state drives (SSD). The upgrade to the SATA-3Gbps SSD can help users get a tune-up and extract greater performance out of their workstations, PCs, and servers. Without a doubt, the SATA-3Gbps SSDs will easily exceed the interface's throughput ceiling compared to the mechanical hard drives of a similar interface. Another major advantage of the SSDs is the innate ability to handle random I/O requests. If you've not used a SATA II SSD, you are losing increased performance and have not experienced responsiveness: apps start faster, faster system boots, and faster file transfers.

SATA 3Gbps has quite some impressive speeds and will reduce boot times and application load times thereby increasing productivity. The SSDs can eliminate hard drive failures and hard drive crashes making them ideal for system builders and enterprise environments. The SSD differs in that it has no moving components making use of microchips but will have the standard SATA interface. SSDs are built for reliability and durability as well as performance gains.

Browse through the products under this category for all your SATA 3gbps SSD needs. We have a variety of storage capacity options that include 60GB, 100GB, 120GB, 160GB, 200GB, 400GB, 480GB, 600GB, 800GB, 960GB SSDs to meet your storage needs. Some of the notable features of the SATA 3Gbps and the SSDs products listed above are:

  • Data throughput of up to 3.0 Gb/s
  • Multi-level cell NAND flash technology for better storage speeds.
  • Read speed of up to 230 MB/s and write speeds of up to 180 MB/s. The fast read/write speeds improve data transfer and increase overall system responsiveness.
  • Support for native command queuing (NCQ) to increase efficiency in the execution order of reading and writing commands.
  • Available in the 2.5-inch form factor for deployment in space-constrained environments in light and thin form factor devices and system configurations.
  • Backward and forward compatibility with devices that support the SATA standard. The SATA 3Gbps SSDs are compatible with the different revisions of SATA – backward compatible with SATA 1.5 Gb/s and forward compatible with SATA-III/SATA 6Gbps.
  • Non-volatile flash memory to allow outstanding data retention.
  • Advanced garbage collection algorithms serve to maintain the high performance of the SSD even after long durations in operation.
  • Error correction code functionality for reliable data transfer.
  • Wear leveling support and shock resistance.
  • Low power consumption which is particularly helpful in preserving battery runtime in PCs and increases efficiency in notebooks users.
  • Support for hardware purge for faster deleting of data at the push of a button and write-protect functionality to prevent data modification.

The SATA 3Gbps SSD offers cool and silent operation mainly due to the lack of moving parts which also means lower power use. Lower energy consumption arises from the fact that the SSD will use lesser power and that its cooling needs are much lower.

All the SATA II SSDs have built-in reliability that includes the power shield to prevent damage caused by power failure. For a longer lifespan, the SMART command aids in the detection of possible drive failure before it even occurs. We have solid warranties – up to 3 years – on all our drives so that you can peace of mind that you are covered and using tested components including SATA cables.
