In the realm of information technology, data storage is a critical component for businesses of all sizes. The volume of data generated and processed is constantly increasing, and organizations need robust storage solutions to manage this influx effectively. Dell, a company well-known for its innovation in the IT industry, has designed the C5HD0 hard drive, which boasts an impressive set of specifications perfectly suited for demanding server environments. In this Description, we'll take an in-depth look at the C5HD0 Dell hard drive, breaking down its key features, including its massive 8 Terabytes (TB) storage capacity, rapid 7200 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) speed, Near-line Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface, lightning-fast 12 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS) data transfer rate, 512e format, compact 3.5-inch form factor, and hot-plug capability. Additionally, we'll discuss how this hard drive is uniquely designed to fit Dell Poweredge servers.
Storage Capacity: 8 Terabytes (TB)
One of the most notable features of the C5HD0 Dell hard drive is its remarkable storage capacity. With a massive 8 Terabytes (TB) of storage space, this hard drive is well-equipped to handle vast amounts of data. This is especially crucial for enterprises dealing with large datasets, virtualization, and data-intensive applications. Whether you're storing documents, images, videos, databases, or any other type of data, the C5HD0 can accommodate your needs with ample room to spare.
Speed: 7200 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)
Speed is an essential factor in data storage solutions, as it directly affects data access and transfer times. The C5HD0 doesn't disappoint in this regard, as it operates at an impressive 7200 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM). This high rotational speed ensures that data can be read and written quickly, making it an ideal choice for applications that require rapid access to information. Whether you're running databases or hosting websites, the 7200 RPM speed of the C5HD0 will keep your operations running smoothly.
Interface: Near-line Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS)
The C5HD0 Dell hard drive employs the Near-line Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface. SAS is a popular and robust technology for connecting storage devices to servers and other computing equipment. Near-line SAS offers the perfect balance between performance and cost-effectiveness, making it an ideal choice for enterprise storage. SAS technology provides high data transfer rates, superior reliability, and outstanding compatibility with a wide range of systems.
Data Transfer Rate: 12 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS)
The data transfer rate of a storage device is a critical factor, especially in enterprise settings. The C5HD0 excels in this aspect, boasting a remarkable 12 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS) data transfer rate. This high-speed data transfer ensures that your data can move quickly between the hard drive and the connected server. It significantly reduces latency and bottlenecks, making it suitable for real-time data processing and applications where speed is of the essence.
The C5HD0 Dell hard drive follows the 512e format. "512e" stands for 512 bytes of data per sector with advanced format emulation. This format provides compatibility with both legacy systems that use 512-byte sectors and modern systems that utilize 4K (4096-byte) sectors. This versatility ensures that the C5HD0 can seamlessly integrate into various IT infrastructures, making it a versatile choice for businesses with diverse hardware setups.
Form Factor: 3.5-inch
The physical size of a hard drive is crucial, especially in server environments where space is often at a premium. The C5HD0 comes in a 3.5-inch form factor, which is a common size for enterprise-grade hard drives. This compact design allows for easy installation and replacement in standard server drive bays, ensuring that you can maximize your storage capacity without needing extra space or adapters.
Hot-plug is a feature that simplifies the process of replacing or adding hard drives in a server while it's running. The C5HD0 Dell hard drive comes equipped with hot-plug capability, making it incredibly convenient for IT administrators. With hot-plug, you can swap out a failed drive or add additional storage without having to power down the server. This feature enhances the overall uptime and availability of your server, reducing the risk of data loss or disruptions.
Compatibility with Dell Poweredge Servers
One of the significant advantages of the C5HD0 Dell hard drive is its compatibility with Dell Poweredge servers. Dell has designed this hard drive with Poweredge servers in mind, ensuring a seamless fit and optimal performance. Poweredge servers are renowned for their reliability and power, making them a popular choice for businesses and data centers. The C5HD0 is specifically engineered to work seamlessly within this server ecosystem, allowing you to leverage the full potential of your Dell infrastructure.
