Installation and Setup of the HPE 861693-X21 Hard Drive
  • Make sure that you have the necessary tools and equipment, including a SATA cable, screws, and a screwdriver.
  • Turn off the server or storage array and unplug it from the power source.
  • Locate an available drive bay on the server or storage array, and remove any blank drive bay filler panels.
  • Insert the HPE 861693-X21 Hard Drive into the drive bay, aligning the screw holes on the hard drive with the screw holes on the drive bay.
  • Secure the hard drive to the drive bay using screws.
  • Connect a SATA cable to the SATA port on the back of the hard drive.
  • Connect the other end of the SATA cable to an available SATA port on the server or storage array.
  • Turn on the server or storage array and log in to the system.
  • If necessary, configure the hard drive using the system's configuration utility or management software.
  • Once the hard drive is recognized by the system, you can begin using it for storage.

Please note that these are general steps and that the installation and setup process may vary depending on the specific server or storage array that you are using. We recommend consulting the manufacturer's documentation for detailed instructions on installing and setting up the HPE 861693-X21 Hard Drive with your specific system. Additionally, it is important to follow all appropriate safety precautions when installing or servicing any computer hardware.

Performance and Reliability

The HPE 3TB Midline Hard Drive (part number 861693-X21) is designed to offer both high performance and reliability. Here are some key features that contribute to its performance and reliability:


  • High-capacity storage: The 3TB capacity of the HPE 861693-X21 Hard Drive allows for the storage and retrieval of large amounts of data.
  • SATA 6Gbps interface: The SATA 6Gbps interface provides fast data transfer speeds for improved performance.
  • 7.2K RPM spindle speed: The high spindle speed allows for fast data access times and improved performance.
  • 64MB cache: The 64MB cache helps to improve read/write performance.


  • SMART technology: The HPE 861693-X21 Hard Drive includes SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) technology, which allows the drive to monitor itself for potential problems and report them to the system administrator before they become critical.
  • Rotational Vibration Safeguard (RVS): RVS helps to prevent rotational vibration in multi-drive configurations, which can lead to data errors and downtime.
  • Error Correction Code (ECC): ECC helps to detect and correct errors in data that may be caused by media defects, drive wear, or other factors.
  • Built-in Data Integrity: The HPE 861693-X21 Hard Drive features built-in data integrity checks, which help to ensure that data is stored and retrieved accurately and without corruption.
Data Security and Encryption

The HPE 861693-X21 Hard Drive does not come with built-in encryption capabilities. However, HPE does offer several encryption solutions that can be used with the drive to provide additional data security. Here are some of the encryption solutions that are available:

  • HPE Secure Encryption: This solution provides data-at-rest encryption for HPE ProLiant servers and HPE storage arrays. It uses self-encrypting drives (SEDs) with AES-256 encryption to protect data from unauthorized access. The encryption is transparent to the user and does not impact system performance.
  • HPE Smart Array Controllers: Many HPE Smart Array Controllers include support for self-encrypting drives (SEDs) with hardware-based encryption. These drives use AES-256 encryption to protect data at rest.
  • HPE StoreEver Tape Storage: HPE StoreEver Tape Storage includes support for data encryption using the LTO-8 encryption standard. LTO-8 tapes use AES-256 encryption to protect data during backup and archival.

It is important to note that while encryption can provide additional data security, it is not a substitute for other security measures, such as access controls and network security. To ensure the security of your data, it is important to implement a comprehensive security strategy that includes multiple layers of protection.
