The 400-AUWI Dell 900GB 15K RPM 256MB SAS 12Gbps 512n SFF HDD is a computer storage device manufactured by Dell, a multinational computer technology company. This device is designed for use in enterprise-level computer systems that require high-capacity and high-performance storage solutions. In this article, we will explain in detail what this device is, what its specifications are, and what its benefits are.
Overview of the 400-AUWI Dell Hard Disk Drive The 400-AUWI Dell Hard Disk Drive is a 900GB SAS drive that has a spindle speed of 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). SAS stands for Serial Attached SCSI, which is a type of interface used to connect storage devices to a computer system. SAS is a high-performance interface that provides faster data transfer rates and better reliability than other types of interfaces, such as SATA. The 400-AUWI Dell Hard Disk Drive is also designed to support a 12Gbps data transfer rate, which is twice as fast as the previous generation of SAS drives.
The 400-AUWI Dell Hard Disk Drive also uses a 512n sector format, which means that it uses 512-byte sectors to store data. This is the most common sector format used in modern hard disk drives, and it provides a good balance between storage capacity and data transfer rate. The 400-AUWI Dell Hard Disk Drive is also a Small Form Factor (SFF) drive, which means that it is designed to be compact and fit into tight spaces, making it ideal for use in servers and storage arrays.

The Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard drives have become increasingly popular for their increasing use in high-end workstations and servers. These drives are employed in consumer desktops and modern servers for their speed and reliability. Enterprises have made the SAS hard drives their de-facto standard. Now, the 12Gbps speed throws the usefulness of these drives up a notch.
Most professional hosting providers now use SAS 12Gbps hard drives for data production. These drives have proven useful in high input/output operations and critical website functions. Users trust these drives because there is no risk of data loss, corruption, or downtime.
SAS 12Gbps drives read, write, and process data within split seconds. The latest 12Gbps disks use the latest RAID hardware technology to offer faster data transfer and recovery rates. They are perfect for sequential data, high workloads, and random IOPS alike.
This function allows them to be best suited for servers that have 100 percent duty cycles. They do not only work with desktops and PCs, but they can read/write data 24/7.
SAS 12Gbps HDDs have received the utmost attention in the market as a result of their high performance. These performance benefits allow it to be useful for a wide variety of applications. For instance, a SAS 12Gbps connection can support up to four wide lanes per connection.
Connecting JBOD with these SAS drives can support up to 1200MB/s. These high-performance drives do not only help handle large workloads; they also offer cost-effective expansion to an already robust system.
Also, each 12Gbps high-performance SAS drive can offer users a rotational speed of up to 15000 rpm.
They provide a great bandwidth enough to perform efficiently. The robust performance of SAS 12Gbps drives clearly a worthy investment for improved performance of servers and desktops. They provide very large amounts of storage options and are a cost-effective choice for users.
Flexibility is one of the best benefits of SAS 12Gbps drives. These drives have configured flexibility, which allows them to work perfectly with several devices without modification or changes. Many of them feature a Universal Serial controller for seamless system support.
SAS 12Gbps hard drives can also be partitioned into a storage pool and assigned to servers for work-intensive applications. They are a perfect fit for server systems, including reservation systems, medical imaging, and more!
Only this range of SAS hard drives can provide users with the best worlds of flexibility. This way, allows them to support use with other drives.
12Gbps SAS-based storage systems have the benefit of dual-port capability. This allows them to provide a redundant path to the drives in case of controller failover. These drives also operate on separate point-to-point connections. That way, it is rare for drive connection loss to affect them.SAS 12Gbps HDDs are built to handle the rigours of heavy workloads and enterprise use. They also safeguard data integrity, thanks to their ability to comprehensively verify data and correct errors.
