Product Details of the HPE P21080-001 240GB SATA-6GBPS SSD

In the realm of data storage solutions, solid-state drives (SSDs) have emerged as one of the most efficient and reliable options. Among them, the HPE P21080-001 240GB SATA-6GBPS SSD stands out as a noteworthy choice. This article aims to provide a comprehensive overview of this SSD, delving into its features, specifications, benefits, and applications.

Understanding SSDs

Before diving into the specifics of the HPE P21080-001 240GB SSD, it's essential to understand the fundamental concept of solid-state drives. Unlike traditional hard disk drives (HDDs) that use spinning disks and mechanical components to store data, SSDs utilize flash memory technology. This allows for faster data access, improved reliability, and reduced power consumption compared to HDDs.

HPE (Hewlett Packard Enterprise)

Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) is a leading global provider of information technology solutions, including servers, storage, networking, and software. With a rich history of innovation and expertise in the industry, HPE offers a wide range of products designed to meet the diverse needs of businesses and organizations worldwide.

The HPE P21080-001 240GB SATA-6GBPS SSD

The HPE P21080-001 240GB SATA-6GBPS SSD is a high-performance storage solution designed to deliver exceptional reliability and speed for various computing applications. Let's explore its key features and specifications in detail:

Capacity and Form Factor

The HPE P21080-001 SSD offers a storage capacity of 240GB, making it suitable for storing a significant amount of data, including operating systems, applications, and files. It features a Small Form Factor (SFF) design, which is ideal for space-constrained environments such as rack-mounted servers and blade systems.

Interface and Compatibility

This SSD is equipped with a SATA 6GBPS interface, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of systems and devices that support SATA connectivity. Whether you're upgrading an existing server or building a new infrastructure, the HPE P21080-001 SSD seamlessly integrates into your setup without requiring any additional hardware or software modifications.

Read Intensive Workloads

One of the notable characteristics of the HPE P21080-001 SSD is its suitability for read-intensive workloads. Read-intensive applications, such as data analytics, content delivery, and virtualization, involve frequent data retrieval operations. With its optimized read performance, this SSD excels in handling such workloads efficiently, resulting in faster response times and improved overall system performance.

Triple-Level Cell (TLC) NAND Flash

The HPE P21080-001 SSD utilizes Triple-Level Cell (TLC) NAND flash memory technology, which offers a balance of performance, capacity, and cost-effectiveness. TLC NAND stores three bits of data per cell, allowing for higher storage densities compared to Single-Level Cell (SLC) or Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND. This enables the SSD to provide ample storage space while maintaining competitive pricing.

Smart Carrier Design

One of the distinguishing features of the HPE P21080-001 SSD is its Smart Carrier design. The Smart Carrier is a hot-pluggable drive carrier that simplifies installation and maintenance tasks in HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers. It features an integrated LED light that provides status indicators for easy identification of drive activity and health.

End-to-End Data Protection

Data integrity and security are paramount in any storage solution. The HPE P21080-001 SSD incorporates advanced features for end-to-end data protection, including Error Correction Code (ECC), wear leveling, and power-loss protection. These mechanisms help safeguard your data against corruption, ensure consistent performance, and enhance the lifespan of the SSD.

Performance and Reliability

When it comes to storage devices, performance and reliability are key considerations. The HPE P21080-001 SSD delivers impressive read and write speeds, allowing for rapid data access and transfer rates. Whether you're running demanding applications or handling large datasets, this SSD can keep up with the workload while maintaining consistent performance levels over time.

Use Cases

Exploring the Read Speeds

The HPE P21080-001 240GB SATA-6GBPS Read Intensive SFF 2.5inch TLC SC Solid State Drive offers fast read speeds, which can significantly improve system performance. Here are the read speeds for this SSD:

  • Sequential read speed: Up to 535 MB/s
  • Random read speed: Up to 90,000 IOPS

The sequential read speed is the speed at which the SSD can read large files in a sequential order. This is important for tasks such as booting up the system, launching applications, and transferring large files. The HPE P21080-001 SSD's sequential read speed of up to 535 MB/s is quite fast, which can lead to improved system responsiveness and reduced loading times.

The random read speed is the speed at which the SSD can read small files in a random order. This is important for tasks such as accessing frequently used files and applications. The HPE P21080-001 SSD's random read speed of up to 90,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) is also quite fast, which can lead to improved system performance when working with small files and accessing frequently used data.

Data Security and Encryption Features

The HPE P21080-001 240GB SATA-6GBPS Read Intensive Sff 2.5inch Tlc Sc Solid State Drive offers several features to ensure data security and encryption, including:

  • Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) technology: This drive supports SED technology, which uses hardware-based encryption to protect data on the drive. SED technology encrypts data at the drive level, which makes it more secure than software-based encryption.
  • AES 256-bit encryption: The HPE P21080-001 drive supports AES 256-bit encryption, which is a robust encryption algorithm used by governments and industries worldwide to protect sensitive information.
  • Secure Erase: The drive supports Secure Erase, which allows users to permanently erase all data on the drive. This feature is especially useful when selling or disposing of the drive.
  • Power loss protection: The drive has power loss protection, which ensures that data is not lost or corrupted in case of a sudden power loss. This feature is critical for applications that require high reliability and data integrity.
