Product Overview of the HPE 718162-B21 1.2TB SAS 6GBPS Hard Disk Drive

The 718162-B21 is a high-performance hard disk drive (HDD) designed for servers. It is manufactured by Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), one of the leading companies in the server industry. The HDD offers a large storage capacity of 1.2 Terabytes (TB) and operates at a speed of 10000 revolutions per minute (RPM). In this article, we will take a closer look at the technical specifications of the 718162-B21 HDD and understand its features and benefits.

Key Features of 1.2TB SFF Dual Port HDD1.2 Terabytes (TB) Storage Capacity

The 718162-B21 HDD offers a storage capacity of 1.2 Terabytes (TB), making it an ideal choice for storing large amounts of data. It is suitable for use in high-capacity applications, such as data centers, cloud computing, and virtualization. The large storage capacity of the Hard Disk Drive ensures that there is enough space to store all types of data, including text, images, videos, and audio files.

10000 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)

The 718162-B21 HDD operates at a speed of 10000 revolutions per minute (RPM), making it a high-performance HDD. The high rotational speed of the HDD ensures that data is accessed quickly and efficiently. This is especially important for applications that require fast access to data, such as database servers and web servers.

Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) Interface

The 718162-B21 HDD uses the Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface, which is a high-speed interface used for connecting storage devices to servers. The SAS interface offers several advantages over other interfaces, such as Serial ATA (SATA). One of the main advantages of the SAS interface is its higher data transfer rate. The 718162-B21 HDD has a data transfer rate of 6 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS), which is six times faster than the SATA interface.

Dual Port Small Form Factor (SFF) Design

The 718162-B21 HDD has a Dual Port Small Form Factor (SFF) design, which means that it has two SAS ports and a small physical size. The small size of the HDD allows it to be used in servers with limited space, such as blade servers and rack-mounted servers. The Dual Port design of the HDD provides redundancy, which means that if one SAS port fails, the other SAS port can still be used to access data.

Hot Plug Capability

The 718162-B21 HDD has a Hot Plug capability, which means that it can be replaced while the server is still running. This is important for applications that require high availability, such as web servers and database servers. The Hot Plug capability of the HDD allows it to be replaced quickly and easily without having to shut down the server.

Tray Included

The 718162-B21 HDD comes with a tray that is used to install the HDD in a server. The tray ensures that the HDD is securely installed in the server and provides easy access to the HDD for maintenance and replacement. The tray also helps to dissipate heat from the HDD, which is important for maintaining optimal performance and reliability.

Connectivity: Navigating at 6 Gigabytes Per Second

The Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface is the backbone of the 718162-B21's connectivity prowess. With a data transfer rate of 6 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS), this HDD ensures efficient communication between the storage device and the server. The SAS interface is known for its reliability and scalability, making it suitable for demanding enterprise environments.

Reliability: Dual Port Redundancy for Seamless Operations

In the realm of server storage, reliability is paramount. The 718162-B21 addresses this need with its Dual Port configuration. This redundancy feature ensures that even if one port fails, the other takes over seamlessly, minimizing the risk of data loss and downtime. The dual-port design enhances the overall reliability and availability of the storage solution.

Compact and Hot Plug-Ready

The Small Form Factor (SFF) of the 718162-B21 adds a layer of versatility to its profile. The compact design allows for efficient space utilization within server chassis. Additionally, the Hot Plug capability simplifies maintenance and upgrades. Administrators can replace or add drives without powering down the server, contributing to improved system uptime.

Compatibility: Tailored for Server Environments

The 718162-B21 is specifically engineered for server applications. Its compatibility with various server models and configurations makes it a versatile choice for organizations with diverse server infrastructures. Whether integrated into rack-mounted servers or blade systems, this HDD adapts to the dynamic needs of modern data centers.

Space Optimization

The Small Form Factor design of the HP 718162-B21 addresses the space challenges faced by modern data centers. As servers become more compact, the SFF design enables efficient space utilization without sacrificing storage capacity. This is particularly advantageous in environments where maximizing the number of servers within a limited physical space is a priority.

Minimized Downtime

The hot plug capability of the HP 718162-B21 facilitates server maintenance and upgrades with minimal downtime. The ability to replace or add storage components without shutting down the entire system ensures continuous service availability. This is crucial for businesses that rely on uninterrupted operations for critical applications and services.
