Factors To Consider When Choosing HPE MSA Storage Hard Drive

The selection of Hard Drives for your MSA storage is determined by your server's workload, Hard Drive Speed, and storage.

1. Workload Requirement

If your server tasks involve a lot of sequential tasks, you can go for either Enterprise SAS Hard drives or SAS MDL HDD.

Therefore, the higher your HDD speed, the faster files can be accessed by users. This is critical especially for shared storage.

1) 1TB-7.2K RPM

2) 2TB-7.2K RPM

3) 3TB-7.2K RPM

4) 4TB-7.2K RPM

3. Storage Requirements
