Data Center Applications
A HP 300GB 10K RPM 80 Pin Hot Swap SCSI Ultra 320 Hard Drive is a type of hard drive that is designed for use in data center applications. Data centers are large facilities that house servers, storage systems, and other equipment that support the operations of organizations and businesses. These drives are designed to handle the high-performance requirements of data centers, and are built to withstand the demanding conditions of these environments.
One of the main applications of a HP 300GB 10K RPM 80 Pin Hot Swap SCSI Ultra 320 Hard Drive in a data center is as a storage device for large amounts of data. These drives have a high storage capacity of 300GB, which makes them ideal for storing large amounts of data such as video, images, and documents. They also have a fast data transfer rate of 10K RPM, which allows for fast access to data stored on the drive.
Another application of these drives in data centers is as a hot-swappable drive. Hot-swappable drives can be replaced or removed from a server without having to shut down the system. This feature is important in data centers where downtime is not an option, and it allows for easy maintenance and replacement of drives.
The 80 Pin SCSI Ultra 320 interface of these drives also makes them compatible with a wide range of servers and storage systems. This feature ensures that they can be used in a variety of data center environments, making them a versatile option for data storage and management.
The HP 300GB 10K RPM Hot Swap SCSI Ultra 320 Hard Drive, also known as BD30087B53, is considered a reliable storage solution for data center applications. The drive is built with high-quality components that are designed to withstand the demanding conditions of data center environments.
One key feature that contributes to the reliability of this drive is its high data transfer rate of 10K RPM. This means that the drive can access and transfer data at a faster rate than other hard drives, which reduces the risk of data loss or corruption due to slow access times.
Another feature that enhances the reliability of this drive is its hot-swappable design. This means that the drive can be removed or replaced without having to shut down the system, which minimizes downtime and ensures that the data center can continue to operate smoothly.
The drive also has a high storage capacity of 300GB, which allows for large amounts of data to be stored on the drive. This reduces the need for multiple drives, which can increase the risk of data loss or corruption.
In addition, the drive is built with a SCSI Ultra 320 interface, which is known for its high data transfer rates and reliability. This interface ensures that the drive can work seamlessly with other data center equipment and can handle large amounts of data without any issues.
The HP 300GB 10K RPM Hot Swap SCSI Ultra 320 Hard Drive, also known as BD30087B53, has a 3.5-inch form factor. This means that the drive is designed to fit into a standard 3.5-inch drive bay or slot, which is commonly found in servers and storage systems.
The 3.5-inch form factor is the most common size of hard drives used in data center applications, as it provides a balance of storage capacity, speed, and power consumption. The size also allows for easy installation and removal of the drive, which is important in hot-swappable environments such as data centers.
The 3.5-inch form factor also allows for the use of a standard 80-pin SCSI interface to connect the drive to the server or storage system, which is known for its high data transfer rates and reliability.
Additionally, the drive has a built-in hot swap tray which is a mechanism that allows the drive to be easily removed and replaced from the system without shutting it down. This allows for easy maintenance and replacement of drives, and minimizes downtime in data center environments.
In summary, the HP 300GB 10K RPM Hot Swap SCSI Ultra 320 Hard Drive has a 3.5-inch form factor, which is the standard size for hard drives in data center applications. This form factor allows for easy installation and removal of the drive, and provides a balance of storage capacity, speed, and power consumption. The built-in hot-swap tray and the standard 80-pin SCSI interface also increase the drive's reliability and performance.

About Refurbished Products
The ultra320 SCSI hard drive generation is the immediate upgrade of its predecessor, the ultra160 SCSI. The newer generation ultra320 SCSI HDD comes about as an implementation of the SCSI-3 Parallel Interface-4 (SPI-4) standards.
Over its lifetime, the SCSI standard is widely used in servers and high-end workstations. It is possible to install SCSI HDDs in a desktop PC that has one or more IDE disk drives. The IDE drive acts as the boot drive, while the SCSI hard drive provides additional storage capacity. SCSI is not commonly used in desktop PCs, although it allows the addition of a scanner and several other drives such as DVD-RAM, CD-Rs, and Zip drives to a single SCSI cable chain. USB and FireWire have gradually replaced the SCSI as alternate interfaces in the latest desktop PCs.
In-network servers, SCSI allows for the setting up of several hard drives in the RAID configuration to reduce the risk of loss of data. The configuration supports hot-swapping - the changing of hard drives while the system is still operating.
Ultra320 SCSI HDD just as the name suggests delivers 320 Mbps top speed and provides a faster bus at 80 MHz and a wider data path at 16 bit. Connections with the Ultra320 SCSI HDDs just like with SCSI devices can be daisy-chained since they have two ports - the incoming and the outgoing cables. Besides, SCSI has a strong commitment to backward compatibility with previous generations, which explains its widespread use as an I/O interface and the elimination of the need for substantial investments in equipment and infrastructure. Migration to the ultra320 SCSI HDD is smooth whether it is from the Ultra160 SCSI or other generations of the SCSI standard because of backward compatibility.
The ultra320 SCSI hard drive takes on technologies such as domain validation, cyclic redundancy check, and dual-edge clocking first introduced by ultra160 SCSI. Additionally, the ultra320 SCSI hard drive introduces protocol changes and other technologies that enhance performance and support reliable data transfer speeds at 320 Mbps. We have the following ultra320 SCSI HDD options: 146GB-10K RPM, 146GB-15K RPM, 300GB-10K RPM, 300GB-15K RPM, 36GB-10K RPM, 36GB-15K RPM, 73GB-10K RPM, 73GB-15K RPM, and 18GB-15K RPM to meet your performance and storage requirements.
The standard features of the ultra320 SCSI hard drive include:
- Two-fold increase in transfer speed: The ultra320 SCSI hard drive increases the transfer rate by 100% from the previous generation at the rate of 320 Mbps. The technology allows greater transfer rates, effectively leading to greater performance in environments of extended data transfer and support for many devices on a single bus.
- Support for SCSI packet protocol: By enabling packet protocols, the ultra320 SCSI HDD helps to reduce command overhead by using dual transition (DT) data phases to transfer data, commands, and statuses rather than asynchronous phases that are generally slow. Packet protocol allows for the transfer of multiple commands in one connection as well as increased performance through minimal command overhead and maximum bus utilization.
- Quick Arbitration and Selection (QAS): the technology helps reduce control release overhead between devices at the SCSI bus. QAS is all about reducing command overhead and maximizing utilization of the bus.
- Read/Write Data Streaming facilitates the reduction of overhead associated with data transfer through the sending of a LUN Q-TAG (LQ) data stream packet, which is subsequently followed by multiple data packets. Greater write data streaming is achieved since the bus turnaround delay is eliminated between LQ and data packets.
- The flow control feature facilitates the initiator to enhance the pre-fetching of data for writes and enhance the flushing of FIFOs for reads.
