Capacity & Performance

The Dell AA298711 is a 3.84TB SAS SSD with a read-intensive performance profile and TLC (Triple-Level Cell) flash memory technology. It operates at a 12Gbps data transfer rate and is designed for use in enterprise environments.


  • Raw Capacity: 3.84TB
  • Usable Capacity: 3.84TB


  • Sequential Read Speed: Up to 1,200 MB/s
  • Sequential Write Speed: Up to 250 MB/s
  • Random Read IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second): Up to 120,000 IOPS
  • Random Write IOPS: Up to 25,000 IOPS

These specifications indicate that the drive is capable of delivering high read performance, with somewhat lower write performance, and is intended for use in read-intensive workloads. The sequential read and write speeds indicate the maximum data transfer rate for large blocks of data, while the random read and write IOPS indicate the maximum number of small, random I/O operations that the drive can handle per second. The 12Gbps SAS interface provides higher performance compared to the 6Gbps SATA interface, making this drive suitable for demanding enterprise applications.

Read Intensive TLC Technology

The AA298711 Dell 3.84TB SAS 12GBPS Read Intensive TLC 512E SSD uses TLC (Triple-Level Cell) technology, which is a type of NAND flash memory that stores three bits of data per cell. TLC is less expensive than MLC (Multi-Level Cell) and SLC (Single-Level Cell) technologies, but has a slower write speed and a shorter lifespan.

The "Read Intensive" designation in this SSD indicates that it is optimized for read-heavy workloads, such as data warehousing, analytics, and content delivery. These types of workloads typically have a low rate of data changes, and thus prioritize fast read speeds over write speeds.

The "512E" designation refers to the sector format used by the SSD, which is 512 bytes per sector with an emulation layer to appear as a drive with larger 4K sectors to the operating system. This format is commonly used in enterprise-level storage systems.

Installation & Maintenance

The installation and maintenance of the Dell AA298711 3.84TB SAS 12Gbps Read Intensive TLC 512E SSD involves several steps and considerations.


  • Ensure that the system supports SAS 12Gbps and has an available SAS connector
  • Physically install the drive into the system, following the manufacturer's guidelines for proper placement and connection
  • Power on the system and initialize the drive using the operating system or disk management tools


  • Monitor the health and performance of the drive using built-in tools and software, such as the operating system's disk management utilities or Dell's OpenManage software
  • Regularly back up critical data to prevent data loss in case of drive failure
  • Replace the drive if necessary, following the manufacturer's guidelines for proper handling and disposal of the old drive

It is important to follow the manufacturer's guidelines and best practices for installation and maintenance to ensure proper operation and reliability of the drive. If you are unsure about the installation or maintenance process, it is best to seek the assistance of a qualified professional.
