Product overview of 400-APEX Dell 900GB

The 400-APEX Dell 900GB 15K RPM Self-Encrypting FIPS140 SAS-12GBPS 256MB Buffer 512N 2.5Inch In 3.5Inch Hybrid Carrier Hot Swap Hard Drive With Tray is a powerful hard drive that is designed to provide high-speed data transfer and increased storage capacity. It is an excellent choice for those who are looking for a reliable and secure storage solution for their data. In this article, we will take a closer look at the various features of this hard drive and explain what makes it stand out from the rest.

Capacity and RPM

The 400-APEX Dell 900GB hard drive is a 15K RPM hard drive, which means it is designed to operate at a speed of 15,000 rotations per minute. This high speed is necessary to achieve faster data transfer rates and quicker access times. The 900GB storage capacity of this hard drive means that it can store large amounts of data, including high-quality video files, music, and documents.

Self-Encryption and FIPS 140 Compliance

One of the standout features of the 400-APEX Dell hard drive is its self-encrypting capability. This means that the hard drive is designed to automatically encrypt all data that is written to it, making it highly secure. This feature is especially useful for those who store sensitive data, such as financial records, medical records, or classified information.

In addition to its self-encrypting capability, the 400-APEX Dell hard drive is also compliant with the Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) 140. This is a set of guidelines established by the US government for the protection of sensitive data. FIPS 140 compliance ensures that the hard drive meets the highest standards of security and encryption.

SAS 12GBPS and 256MB Buffer

The 400-APEX Dell hard drive uses the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface, which is a high-speed data transfer protocol that is commonly used in enterprise-level storage systems. The SAS interface provides a data transfer rate of up to 12 gigabits per second (12Gbps), which is much faster than traditional SATA interfaces. This makes the 400-APEX Dell hard drive ideal for use in high-performance storage environments.

The hard drive also comes with a 256MB buffer, which is a small amount of memory that is used to temporarily store data while it is being transferred between the hard drive and the computer. The buffer helps to improve data transfer speeds and reduce the risk of data loss or corruption.

512N and 2.5Inch In 3.5Inch Hybrid Carrier

The 400-APEX Dell hard drive uses a 512-byte native (512N) sector size, which is the standard sector size for modern hard drives. The sector size determines how data is stored on the hard drive, and a larger sector size can lead to more efficient use of storage space.

The hard drive also features a 2.5-inch form factor, which is a smaller size than traditional 3.5-inch hard drives. This makes the hard drive more compact and easier to install in space-limited environments. The hard drive comes with a 3.5-inch hybrid carrier, which is a device that allows the hard drive to be mounted in a 3.5-inch drive bay.

Hot Swap and Tray

The 400-APEX Dell hard drive is designed to be hot-swappable, which means that it can be replaced while the system is running without causing any downtime. This is a useful feature for enterprise-level storage systems, as it allows for easy maintenance and upgrades without interrupting service.
