Product overview of the Dell 400-AMCQ
Solid State Drives (SSDs) have become increasingly popular over the past few years, replacing traditional hard drives in many applications due to their improved performance and reliability. The 400-AMCQ is a 1.92TB SAS SSD designed for read-intensive server workloads. In this article, we will explore the technical specifications of the 400-AMCQ SSD, its features, and benefits for server applications.
The 400-AMCQ is a 1.92TB Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) SSD, which provides a high level of performance and reliability for server applications. It operates at a speed of 12 Gigabits Per Second (GBPS), which is twice the speed of the SATA SSDs. It uses Multi-Level Cell (MLC) flash memory, which can store more data per cell than Single-Level Cell (SLC) flash memory, resulting in higher capacity and lower cost per gigabyte.
Read Intensive Workloads
The 400-AMCQ is designed for read-intensive workloads, making it suitable for applications such as web servers, data warehousing, and content delivery networks. Read-intensive workloads involve a higher percentage of read operations than write operations. These workloads benefit from the high read performance of SSDs, which can significantly improve application response times and reduce server load times.
The 400-AMCQ comes with a hot-plug capability, which means it can be removed and replaced while the server is running. This feature allows for easy maintenance and upgrades without disrupting server operations, resulting in less downtime and increased productivity.
Small Form Factor
The 400-AMCQ has a 2.5-inch Small Form Factor (SFF), which makes it ideal for use in compact server environments. The small size of the drive allows for higher storage density, which means more drives can be accommodated in a single server, resulting in greater storage capacity and improved server performance.
Smart Carrier Converter
The 400-AMCQ is equipped with a Smart Carrier Converter, which provides enhanced functionality and security for server applications. The Smart Carrier Converter is a hardware device that is installed in the drive bay of the server and provides additional features such as remote monitoring and management, automatic firmware updates, and digitally signed firmware. These features improve the reliability and security of the drive and reduce the risk of data loss or corruption.
Made by Dell
The 400-AMCQ is manufactured by Dell, a leading provider of computer hardware and software solutions. Dell has a reputation for producing high-quality, reliable products, and the 400-AMCQ is no exception. Dell's commitment to quality is reflected in the rigorous testing and quality control processes that are used to ensure the reliability and performance of their products.
The 400-AMCQ offers several benefits for server applications, including
High read performance
The 400-AMCQ is designed for read-intensive workloads, making it suitable for applications such as web servers, data warehousing, and content delivery networks. The high read performance of the drive can significantly improve application response times and reduce server load times, resulting in better user experience and increased productivity.
The hot-plug capability of the 400-AMCQ allows for easy maintenance and upgrades without disrupting server operations, resulting in less downtime and increased productivity.

About Refurbished Products
Users who prefer faster transfer rates and improved system response would find SAS 12GBPS SSDs handy. These drives are suitable for use in enterprise servers and storage arrays. They can process large workloads that require high input/output and low latency. SAS 12GBPS SSDs are one of the most improved storage devices for server virtualization, high-end computing, and data analytics.
These drives support dual-port operation with features that improve reliability. These features include advanced error correction, high signal quality, data integrity technology, and several others. They use higher signal voltages with end-to-end integrity, offering better data speed than SATA drives, and supporting multiple data paths.
Ultra-Fast & Consistent Performance
As SSDs continue to expand in the memory market, the SAS solid-state drives seek to leverage the 12GBPs architecture to offer high-level performance. The design of these drives allows them to carry out several operations effectively. Server virtualization, tiering, high-performance computing, and data analytics have never been faster.
These drives have steady performance specs to allow them to carry out sequential activities. Users will find SAS SSDs with form factors within the range of 1.8" and 3.5", making them a compact option. The SAS 12GBPS comes with a multi-path connection which provides room for fail-over redundancy. With this, users can be sure that there will be no single point of failure.
Furthermore, they feature advanced SAS error-control that ensures high-level error correction and data protection. There is also an error-recovery technology combination that helps to protect user data and prevent data loss.
