Product overview of Storage Drive

The 400-APXS Dell 900GB 15K RPM SAS 12Gbps 256MB Hard Drive is a high-performance storage solution for enterprise-grade computing systems. In this article, we will explain the features and specifications of this hard drive in detail, including its performance, compatibility, and usage scenarios.

Capacity and Speed

The 400-APXS Dell hard drive has a storage capacity of 900GB, which is suitable for storing large amounts of data, such as enterprise applications, databases, and multimedia content. This hard drive also has a spindle speed of 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM), which is a key factor in determining its read and write speeds. The high spindle speed of this hard drive makes it ideal for applications that require fast data access and retrieval, such as online transaction processing (OLTP), virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), and high-performance computing (HPC).

Interface and Transfer Rates

The 400-APXS Dell hard drive uses the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface, which is a high-speed, point-to-point data transfer technology that is widely used in enterprise computing environments. The SAS interface provides a data transfer rate of up to 12 gigabits per second (Gbps), which is twice as fast as its predecessor, the SAS 6Gbps interface. This high transfer rate enables the hard drive to deliver faster data access and retrieval speeds, which is critical in applications that require high throughput and low latency.

Cache and Latency

The 400-APXS Dell hard drive is equipped with a 256MB cache, which is a small amount of high-speed memory that acts as a buffer between the hard drive and the host system. The cache helps to improve the performance of the hard drive by storing frequently accessed data and reducing the number of read and write operations to the physical disk. This, in turn, reduces the latency of the hard drive, which is the time taken to access and retrieve data from the disk. A low latency hard drive is essential in applications that require fast data access and response times, such as OLTP, VDI, and HPC.

Form Factor and Compatibility

The 400-APXS Dell hard drive has a 2.5-inch form factor, which is a standard size for enterprise-grade hard drives. The small form factor of the hard drive makes it suitable for use in compact server and storage systems, such as blade servers and storage arrays. This hard drive is also compatible with a wide range of Dell PowerEdge servers and PowerVault storage systems, including the Dell PowerEdge R640, R740, R740xd, and T640 servers, and the Dell PowerVault MD1400 and MD1420 storage arrays.

Reliability and Durability

The 400-APXS Dell hard drive is designed to deliver high reliability and durability, which is essential in enterprise-grade computing environments. This hard drive is equipped with advanced features such as error correction code (ECC), which detects and corrects errors that may occur during data transmission or storage. The hard drive also has a mean time between failures (MTBF) of 2 million hours, which is a measure of the expected lifespan of the hard drive. The high MTBF of this hard drive indicates that it is designed to operate reliably for an extended period, making it suitable for use in mission-critical applications that require high availability and uptime.

Finally, the 400-APXS Dell 900GB 15K RPM SAS 12Gbps 256MB Hard Drive is a high-performance, enterprise-grade storage solution that is suitable for use in a wide range of applications, including OLTP, VDI, and HPC. This hard drive delivers fast data access and retrieval speeds, low latency, and high reliability
