Overview of the HPE 872348-B21 960GB SATA 6GBPS Solid State Drive

The HPE 872348-B21 is a high-capacity Solid State Drive (SSD) designed for servers. It offers 960 Gigabytes (GB) of storage capacity and utilizes the Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA) interface, which operates at 6 gigabytes per Second (GBPS). The drive is engineered with Multi-Level Cell (MLC) technology, featuring a 2.5-inch form factor and External Hot Swap Smart Carrier. Moreover, it incorporates High-endurance Endurance Technology to ensure reliability and durability in demanding server environments.

Understanding the Basics of 960GB SSD

Before we dive into the specifics of the HPE 872348-B21 SSD, let's break down some basic terms to help us understand its functionality.

Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA)

SATA is a type of interface used to connect storage devices like SSDs and HDDs to a computer or server. It enables data transfer between the storage device and the system. This SSD utilizes the SATA interface, which is widely supported by servers and storage systems. The SATA interface ensures compatibility and ease of integration with existing infrastructure.

Solid State Drive (SSD)

A Solid State Drive is a storage device that uses flash memory to store data. Unlike traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), SSDs have no moving parts, which makes them faster, more reliable, and less prone to damage.

Gigabits Per Second (Gbps)

Gigabits per second is a measure of data transfer speed. It represents how much data can be transferred in one second. The higher the gigabits per second, the faster the data transfer rate.

External Hot Swap Smart Carrier

An External Hot Swap Smart Carrier is a mechanism that allows for easy and quick replacement of drives without shutting down the server. It helps in minimizing downtime and maintaining system availability.

High Endurance Technology

High Endurance Technology refers to the ability of an SSD to withstand a high number of read and write cycles over its lifespan. It ensures durability and longevity, especially in high-demand server environments. The SSD is equipped with High Endurance Technology, which enhances its durability and longevity, making it suitable for demanding server environments that require continuous operation.

Exploring the HPE 872348-B21 960GB SATA SSD

Now that we have a basic understanding of the terms involved, let's take a closer look at the HPE 872348-B21 SSD and its specifications.

960 Gigabytes (GB)

The capacity of the SSD refers to the amount of data it can store. In the case of the HPE 872348-B21, it has a storage capacity of 960 gigabytes, which is equivalent to approximately 960 billion bytes of data.

SATA 6 Gigabits Per Second (GBPS)

The SSD uses the SATA interface with a transfer speed of 6 gigabits per second. This high-speed interface enables efficient data transfer between the SSD and the server, ensuring smooth operation and fast access to stored data.

Form Factor 2.5-inch

The form factor of the SSD indicates its physical dimensions and shape. The HPE 872348-B21 SSD comes in a 2.5-inch form factor, which is a common size for SSDs used in servers and other computing systems.

Multi-Level Cell (MLC)

The SSD utilizes Multi-Level Cell (MLC) flash memory technology, which provides a balance between performance, capacity, and cost-effectiveness. MLC SSDs offer higher storage density compared to Single-Level Cell (SLC) SSDs, making them suitable for various applications, including server storage. MLC technology enables the SSD to store multiple bits of data per cell, enhancing its storage capacity and performance compared to Single-Level Cell (SLC) SSDs.

External Hot Swap Smart Carrier

One notable feature of the HPE 872348-B21 SSD is its External Hot Swap Smart Carrier. This feature allows administrators to replace the SSD while the server is running, without the need for system downtime. It enhances system availability and simplifies maintenance procedures.

Applications and Benefits

The HPE 872348-B21 SSD offers several benefits and can be used in various applications within server environments.

Enhanced Performance

With its high-speed SATA interface and MLC flash memory technology, the SSD delivers enhanced performance compared to traditional HDDs. It enables faster data access and improves overall system responsiveness, making it suitable for high-performance computing tasks. The high capacity and reliability of the SSD make it ideal for storing critical business data, including databases, applications, and virtual machine images.


In virtualized server environments, where multiple virtual machines are hosted on a single physical server, the SSD's fast performance and high endurance ensure smooth operation and responsiveness.


SSDs are well-known for their ability to handle random I/O operations efficiently, making them an excellent choice for database applications that require fast read and write speeds.

Content Delivery Networks (CDNs)

CDNs often require high-performance storage solutions to deliver content quickly and reliably to users around the world. The HPE 872348-B21 SSD can help improve the performance and responsiveness of CDN servers.

Improved Reliability

Thanks to its solid-state design and High Endurance Technology, the SSD offers improved reliability and durability compared to mechanical hard drives. It can withstand frequent read-and-write operations without experiencing mechanical failures, ensuring data integrity and system stability.

Reduced Downtime

The External Hot Swap Smart Carrier feature allows for quick and easy replacement of the SSD without interrupting server operations. This reduces downtime associated with maintenance tasks and ensures continuous availability of critical data and applications.


While SSDs generally have a higher initial cost compared to HDDs, they offer long-term cost savings due to their lower power consumption, reduced cooling requirements, and decreased maintenance needs. The HPE 872348-B21 SSD provides a cost-effective storage solution for organizations looking to optimize their server infrastructure.
