Hot-swapping is the ability to replace a failed or non-functional component in a system without having to shut down the entire system or interrupt its operation. In the case of a hot-swappable hard drive, it means that the drive can be removed and replaced while the system is still running without any negative impact on its performance or stability. This is a crucial feature in mission-critical environments, such as data centers, where downtime can be extremely costly.
Hot-swappable hard drives are designed to be quickly and easily removed and replaced while the system is still running, usually with the help of a special tool or mechanism that allows for easy removal and insertion of the drive. This can help to minimize the time required for maintenance or repairs, and reduce the risk of data loss or system downtime. Additionally, hot-swappable drives can be added or removed from a system as needed to increase or decrease its storage capacity, providing a flexible and scalable storage solution for businesses and organizations.
Advanced Format 512e
Advanced Format 512e is a hard drive technology that increases the storage capacity of hard drives by using larger physical sectors on the disk platters. Traditional hard drives use 512-byte sectors to store data, but 512e drives use larger, 4 kilobyte (KB) sectors. This allows for more efficient use of the physical space on the drive, reducing the amount of unused space between sectors and increasing overall capacity.
However, 512e drives are designed to emulate the 512-byte sector size of traditional hard drives to ensure compatibility with older operating systems and applications that may not support the larger sector size. This is done through the use of software-based emulation, which divides the 4KB physical sector into eight 512-byte logical sectors that are presented to the system.
In general, 512e drives can offer higher capacity and better performance than traditional 512-byte sector drives, while maintaining compatibility with older systems and applications. However, they may require special drivers or firmware updates to function properly, and some performance benefits may only be realized with operating systems and applications that are optimized for the larger sector size.
Encryption and Security Features
The 870796-001 HPE 900GB 15K RPM SAS 12GBPS LFF hard drive comes with several encryption and security features, including:
- Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) Technology: This technology protects data-at-rest with hardware-based encryption. The drive automatically encrypts all data written to it and decrypts all data read from it, without any impact on performance.
- Secure Erase: This feature allows users to erase all data on the drive, rendering it unreadable and unrecoverable. The drive's firmware includes a secure erase feature that meets the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines for secure data erasure.
- Instant Secure Erase (ISE): This feature allows users to quickly and easily erase all data on the drive. It works by instantly overwriting the encryption key, making all data on the drive inaccessible.
- Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Enterprise SSC: This feature is a hardware-based security protocol that provides a secure storage environment for encryption keys and other sensitive data. The TCG Enterprise SSC also supports secure boot, which ensures that the system boots only with authorized firmware and software.
- Common Criteria Certification: The 870796-001 hard drive has been certified under the Common Criteria security standard, which is an internationally recognized certification for IT security products.
- Firmware-Based Password Protection: The drive's firmware includes password protection to prevent unauthorized access to the drive and its data.
- Secure Digital Signature: The drive's firmware is digitally signed, ensuring that it has not been tampered with and that it is authentic. This provides an additional layer of security for the drive and its data.

The Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) hard drives have become increasingly popular for their increasing use in high-end workstations and servers. These drives are employed in consumer desktops and modern servers for their speed and reliability. Enterprises have made the SAS hard drives their de-facto standard. Now, the 12Gbps speed throws the usefulness of these drives up a notch.
Most professional hosting providers now use SAS 12Gbps hard drives for data production. These drives have proven useful in high input/output operations and critical website functions. Users trust these drives because there is no risk of data loss, corruption, or downtime.
SAS 12Gbps drives read, write, and process data within split seconds. The latest 12Gbps disks use the latest RAID hardware technology to offer faster data transfer and recovery rates. They are perfect for sequential data, high workloads, and random IOPS alike.
This function allows them to be best suited for servers that have 100 percent duty cycles. They do not only work with desktops and PCs, but they can read/write data 24/7.
SAS 12Gbps HDDs have received the utmost attention in the market as a result of their high performance. These performance benefits allow it to be useful for a wide variety of applications. For instance, a SAS 12Gbps connection can support up to four wide lanes per connection.
Connecting JBOD with these SAS drives can support up to 1200MB/s. These high-performance drives do not only help handle large workloads; they also offer cost-effective expansion to an already robust system.
Also, each 12Gbps high-performance SAS drive can offer users a rotational speed of up to 15000 rpm.
They provide a great bandwidth enough to perform efficiently. The robust performance of SAS 12Gbps drives clearly a worthy investment for improved performance of servers and desktops. They provide very large amounts of storage options and are a cost-effective choice for users.
Flexibility is one of the best benefits of SAS 12Gbps drives. These drives have configured flexibility, which allows them to work perfectly with several devices without modification or changes. Many of them feature a Universal Serial controller for seamless system support.
SAS 12Gbps hard drives can also be partitioned into a storage pool and assigned to servers for work-intensive applications. They are a perfect fit for server systems, including reservation systems, medical imaging, and more!
Only this range of SAS hard drives can provide users with the best worlds of flexibility. This way, allows them to support use with other drives.
12Gbps SAS-based storage systems have the benefit of dual-port capability. This allows them to provide a redundant path to the drives in case of controller failover. These drives also operate on separate point-to-point connections. That way, it is rare for drive connection loss to affect them.SAS 12Gbps HDDs are built to handle the rigours of heavy workloads and enterprise use. They also safeguard data integrity, thanks to their ability to comprehensively verify data and correct errors.
