Product Overview of the HPE P40470-B21 SAS 24GBPS 960GB SSD

The HPE P40470-B21 SAS SSD is a cutting-edge storage solution designed to meet the demands of modern data centers. With its advanced features and robust performance, this SSD offers exceptional reliability, speed, and efficiency. In this comprehensive guide, we will delve into the intricacies of the HPE P40470-B21 SAS 24GBPS SSD, focusing on its key features, benefits, and applications.

Understanding SAS and 24Gbps Technology

SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) is a high-speed, serial communication protocol used for connecting storage devices such as hard drives and SSDs to servers and workstations. The HPE P40470-B21 960GB SSD utilizes SAS technology, which offers several advantages over traditional interfaces like SATA (Serial ATA), including faster data transfer rates, better scalability, and improved performance under high workloads.

The 24Gbps specification refers to the maximum theoretical data transfer rate supported by the SAS interface. This ultra-fast speed enables the HPE P40470-B21 SSD to deliver exceptional read and write performance, making it ideal for demanding applications such as data analytics, virtualization, and online transaction processing.

960GB Capacity and Read-Intensive

TLC NAND Flash The HPE P40470-B21 SSD boasts a storage capacity of 960GB, providing ample space for storing large datasets, applications, and virtual machines. This generous capacity is crucial for organizations dealing with ever-increasing volumes of data and requiring fast access to critical information.


  • TLC (Triple-Level Cell) NAND flash memory, a type of non-volatile storage known for its high density and cost-effectiveness. Despite being more affordable than other NAND technologies like SLC (Single-Level Cell) and MLC (Multi-Level Cell), TLC NAND offers impressive performance and endurance, especially in read-intensive workloads.
  • Read-Intensive Workloads and Performance Optimization The term "read-intensive" refers to workloads that predominantly involve reading data from storage rather than writing. Examples of read-intensive applications include data warehousing, content delivery networks (CDNs), and media streaming services. The HPE P40470-B21 SSD is specifically optimized for such workloads, delivering superior read performance and reliability.
  • One of the key advantages of read-intensive SSDs is their ability to prioritize read operations, resulting in faster data access and reduced latency. This makes them ideal for applications where quick retrieval of information is paramount, such as online transaction processing and real-time analytics.
  • Digitally Signed Firmware for Enhanced Security Firmware is a type of software embedded in hardware devices to control their operation and functionality. In the case of SSDs, firmware plays a crucial role in managing data storage, error correction, and performance optimization. The HPE P40470-B21 SSD features digitally signed firmware, which provides an additional layer of security against unauthorized modifications and tampering.

Digital signatures are cryptographic mechanisms used to verify the authenticity and integrity of firmware updates. By digitally signing the firmware, HPE ensures that only authorized updates from trusted sources are installed on the SSD, mitigating the risk of malware injection and unauthorized access to sensitive data.


The HPE P40470-B21 SSD offers a multitude of benefits for organizations seeking reliable and high-performance storage solutions:

  • Enhanced Performance: With its SAS interface and 24Gbps data transfer rate, the SSD delivers exceptional read performance, enabling faster data access and processing.
  • Improved Reliability: The use of TLC NAND flash and advanced error correction technologies ensures high reliability and data integrity, even under heavy workloads.
  • Cost-Effective Storage: Despite its high performance and reliability, the SSD remains cost-effective, making it an attractive option for organizations with budget constraints.
  • Security and Data Protection: The inclusion of digitally signed firmware enhances security and protects against unauthorized access, ensuring the integrity of stored data.
  • Scalability and Flexibility: The 960GB capacity and read-intensive optimization make the SSD suitable for a wide range of applications and workloads, from small businesses to large enterprises.
Use Cases

The HPE P40470-B21 SSD is well-suited for various applications and uses cases across different industries:

  • Data Analytics: The SSD's high read performance makes it ideal for accelerating data analytics workloads, enabling faster insights and decision-making.
  • Virtualization: In virtualized environments, the SSD improves VM (virtual machine) performance and responsiveness, leading to better overall system efficiency.
  • Online Transaction Processing (OLTP): For businesses processing large volumes of online transactions, the SSD ensures quick access to transactional data, enhancing customer experience and satisfaction.
  • Content Delivery Networks (CDNs): CDNs rely on fast and reliable storage to deliver web content and media to users worldwide. The HPE P40470-B21 SSD enhances CDN performance by reducing latency and improving content delivery speeds.
  • Media Streaming Services: Streaming platforms benefit from the SSD's high read performance, which enables seamless streaming of high-definition content to users on-demand.

Endurance Management and Extended Life

The HPE P40470-B21 SAS 24GBPS 960GB Read Intensive M.2 TLC SSD is designed for high endurance and extended life in read-intensive applications, such as data warehousing, online transaction processing (OLTP), and data analytics. The drive utilizes TLC (triple-level cell) NAND flash memory, which provides a lower cost per gigabyte compared to other types of NAND, while still delivering a high level of performance.

In terms of endurance management, the HPE P40470-B21 is equipped with features such as wear leveling and over-provisioning that help to distribute write operations evenly across the entire drive, thus avoiding excessive wear on any particular block of memory. This can help to extend the life of the drive and ensure that it continues to perform reliably over time.

Wear-Leveling and Over-Provisioning

Wear-leveling and Over-Provisioning are two important technologies that are commonly used in solid-state drives (SSDs), including the HPE P40470-B21 SAS 24GBPS 960GB Read Intensive M.2 TLC SSD.

Wear-Leveling: Wear-leveling is a technique used to distribute data writes evenly across the flash memory in an SSD. This helps to ensure that all memory cells in the SSD wear evenly over time, which is important because flash memory has a limited number of write cycles before it fails. Wear-leveling algorithms are built into the SSD controller to help mitigate the impact of write cycles on the lifetime of the drive.
