Overview of the Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 Hard Drive

In the fast-paced world of data-driven operations, having a reliable and high-capacity storage solution is crucial for businesses and enterprises. One such powerhouse in the realm of storage technology is the Hitachi HMS5C404040640, a 4 Terabyte (TB) Enterprise Hard Disk Drive (HDD) designed specifically for servers. This comprehensive review will delve into the various aspects of this impressive storage device, exploring its key features, performance capabilities, and the impact it can have on enhancing server functionality.

Key FeaturesSATA 6 Gbps for High-Speed Data Transfer

The Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface is a cornerstone of the Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640's performance. With a SATA 6 Gigabits Per Second (GBPS) interface, this enterprise HDD facilitates high-speed data transfer between the storage device and the server, minimizing latency and ensuring swift access to critical information

Capacity to Propel Productivity

The Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 boasts a capacious storage capacity of 4TB, making it an ideal choice for enterprises with demanding data storage requirements. This vast storage space ensures that businesses can store and access large volumes of data without compromising performance.

Optimized Speed with 5400 RPM

At the heart of this enterprise HDD is its 5400 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) spindle speed. This feature ensures that data retrieval and storage processes occur with optimal speed and efficiency. The 5400 RPM is a sweet spot for balancing performance and energy efficiency, making it well-suited for server environments.

Efficient Data Buffer with 64MB Cache:

A significant contributor to the efficiency of this enterprise HDD is its 64 Megabytes (MB) data buffer. Acting as a temporary storage space, the cache enables quick access to frequently used data, reducing read and write times. This enhances the overall responsiveness of the storage system, especially in scenarios where rapid data retrieval is paramount.

Robust 3.5-Inch Form Factor

The physical form factor of the Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 is another noteworthy feature. With a 3.5-inch design, this enterprise HDD is well-suited for server installations. The larger form factor allows for enhanced cooling mechanisms and durability, crucial factors in maintaining the reliability of the storage system in a server environment.

Performance AnalysisBalancing Act

The balance between storage capacity, RPM, and data transfer speed is a key strength of the Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640. This enterprise HDD is adept at managing large volumes of data while ensuring that access times remain competitive. This balance is particularly important in server environments where both storage capacity and speed are essential.

Reliability in Server Environments

Servers demand a high level of reliability from storage devices, given the constant data access and retrieval operations. The Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640's design is optimized for the rigorous demands of server environments, providing consistent performance and minimizing the risk of data loss or system downtime.

Impact on Server Functionality

Implementing the Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 in a server setup can have a profound impact on overall functionality. The combination of high capacity and optimized speed ensures that servers can handle diverse workloads, from data-intensive applications to virtualization environments, without sacrificing performance.

Storage Capacity

The Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 boasts an impressive 4 Terabytes of storage capacity, providing ample space for large datasets, applications, and system files.

Spindle Speed

The 5400 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM) spindle speed ensures that data retrieval and storage processes occur at an optimal pace, balancing performance and energy efficiency.

SATA Interface

The Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface operates at 6 Gigabits Per Second (GBPS), facilitating high-speed data transfer between the HDD and the server.

Data Buffer

With a generous 64 Megabytes (MB) data buffer, the HDD efficiently manages data access, reducing latency and enhancing overall system responsiveness.

Data Transfer Rate

The Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 has a Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) 6 Gigabits Per Second (GBPS) interface, which allows for fast data transfer rates. SATA is a standard interface used in most modern hard drives and is capable of speeds of up to 6 Gbps. This allows for fast data transfer between the HDD and other components in a storage system, such as a RAID controller or storage controller.

Rotational Speed

The rotational speed of the Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 is 5400 revolutions per minute (RPM). This is a relatively slow speed compared to other enterprise HDDs, which typically operate at speeds of 7200 RPM or higher. However, the slower speed allows for less heat generation and lower power consumption, which can be important in large-scale storage environments.

Buffer Size

The Hitachi HMS5C4040BLE640 has a buffer size of 64 Megabytes (MB). The buffer, also known as a cache, is a small amount of high-speed memory built into the hard drive. This memory is used to temporarily store data that is being read or written to the disk, which helps to improve performance. A larger buffer size generally results in better performance, especially when dealing with large files or multiple data streams.

Advanced Features
  • Thermal Fly-height Control (TFC) - TFC is a technology that helps to regulate the distance between the read/write head and the disk surface. This helps to prevent errors caused by variations in temperature or altitude.
  • Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS) - RVS is a technology that helps mitigate the effects of rotational vibration, which can occur in large-scale storage systems where multiple drives are operating simultaneously. RVS helps to ensure that the drive maintains optimal performance even when subjected to vibration from nearby drives.
  • Advanced Power Management (APM) - APM is a feature that helps to reduce power consumption by the drive. This can be important in large storage systems where energy efficiency is a concern.
