Understanding the HPE 718162-B21 Hard Disk Drive

In the world of servers and storage solutions, the HP 718162-B21 stands out as a formidable player. This Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is a critical component in server setups, providing substantial storage capacity and performance. In this detailed exploration, we will break down the specifications of the HP 718162-B21, deciphering each element to understand its significance.

Key Specifications of the HPE 718162-B21 1.2TB SAS Hard Disk Capacity: 1.2 Terabytes (TB)

The HP 718162-B21 boasts a substantial storage capacity of 1.2 Terabytes (TB). This metric indicates the amount of data that can be stored on the drive, making it suitable for applications and systems with high storage demands.

Speed: 10000 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)

One of the critical factors influencing the performance of a hard disk drive is its rotational speed, measured in Revolutions Per Minute (RPM). The HP 718162-B21 operates at an impressive speed of 10000 RPM. This high RPM ensures swift data access and transfer, making it ideal for applications that require quick response times and data-intensive tasks.

Interface: Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS)

The interface of a hard disk drive determines how it connects to other components in a server. The HP 718162-B21 utilizes Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS), a high-performance interface known for its reliability and efficiency in data transmission. SAS interfaces are commonly employed in enterprise environments where speed and data integrity are paramount.

Data Transfer Rate: 6 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS)

Data transfer rate is a crucial aspect of storage devices, indicating how quickly data can be transmitted between the hard disk drive and other components. The HP 718162-B21 supports a data transfer rate of 6 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS). This high-speed capability is advantageous in scenarios where large volumes of data need to be moved swiftly.

Connectivity: Dual Port

The term 'Dual Port' signifies that the HP 718162-B21 is equipped with two independent data paths or ports for connectivity. This redundancy ensures a more reliable and resilient connection, reducing the risk of data loss or disruption in case one port fails. Dual-port configurations are common in enterprise-grade storage solutions to enhance overall system reliability.

Form Factor: Small Form Factor (SFF)

The physical size and shape of a hard disk drive are defined by its form factor. The HP 718162-B21 adopts the Small Form Factor (SFF), a compact design that is space-efficient and suitable for servers with limited physical space. SFF drives are widely used in modern server architectures, allowing for higher storage density within a given enclosure.

Hot Plug Capability

The term 'Hot Plug' refers to the ability to replace or add components without shutting down the system. The HP 718162-B21 is designed with Hot Plug functionality, enabling administrators to swap or add drives while the server is running. This feature enhances system uptime and simplifies maintenance operations.

Applications and Use CasesEnterprise Servers

The HP 718162-B21's robust specifications make it well-suited for enterprise-level servers handling extensive data processing and storage requirements. Its high capacity and speed contribute to seamless operation in demanding server environments.

Data Centers

In data center environments where efficiency and reliability are paramount, the HP 718162-B21 can play a crucial role. The dual-port configuration and high-speed SAS interface make it a reliable choice for data-intensive applications.


Virtualized environments often demand high-performance storage solutions. The 1.2TB capacity, coupled with the 10000 RPM speed of the HP 718162-B21, ensures that it can meet the demands of virtualization workloads, providing quick access to data for virtual machines.

Advantages of the 718162-B21 1.2TB HDDEnhanced Performance

The combination of a 10,000 RPM rotational speed and a 6 GBPS data transfer rate contributes to the overall enhanced performance of the "718162-B21." Servers equipped with this storage solution can handle demanding workloads with ease.


The 1.2 terabyte storage capacity provides scalability, allowing organizations to expand their storage infrastructure without compromising performance. This scalability is crucial in adapting to the growing volume of data in today's digital landscape.

Reliability and Durability

Serial-attached SCSI interfaces are known for their reliability, and the "718162-B21" lives up to this reputation. Its dual-port configuration adds an extra layer of reliability, ensuring continuous operation even in the event of a component failure.

Cost-Effective Storage Solution

Considering its high capacity and performance capabilities, the "718162-B21" offers a cost-effective storage solution for enterprises. The balance between cost and functionality makes it an attractive option for businesses aiming to optimize their IT investments.

Redundancy and Load Balancing

The Dual Port configuration allows for redundancy, ensuring that if one port fails, the other can seamlessly take over. Additionally, the dual ports enable load balancing, distributing data traffic across both ports for optimized performance. This redundancy is critical for maintaining uninterrupted server operations.

Space Efficiency

The SFF design of the 718162-B21 ensures that it takes up minimal physical space within the server chassis. This is especially important in environments where space is a premium, allowing for more efficient server configurations and improved airflow for cooling.
