Product Overview for the HPE P53552-B21 20TB Hard Drive

In the ever-evolving landscape of data storage, businesses continually seek reliable and high-performance solutions to meet their growing storage demands. One such solution that stands out is the HPE P53552-B21 20TB SAS Serial-Attached SCSI Hard Disk Drive (HDD). In this description, we will delve into the key features and specifications of this storage solution, shedding light on its capabilities as a business-critical instant large form factor (LFF) SC 512e multi-vendor helium-filled HDD.

Understanding the Basics12 Gigabytes Per Second (GBPS)

The HPE P53552-B21 boasts a remarkable data transfer speed of 12 gigabytes per second (GBPS). This high-speed capability ensures swift and efficient data access, making it an ideal choice for businesses with demanding workloads and applications that require rapid data retrieval.

7200 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM)

With a spindle speed of 7200 RPM, the HPE P53552-B21 strikes a balance between performance and energy efficiency. The 7200 revolutions per minute (RPM) ensures quick data access while optimizing power consumption, making it suitable for a wide range of business applications.

Business Critical Instant

The term "Business Critical Instant" emphasizes the drive's suitability for critical business operations. The HPE P53552-B21 is designed to provide instant access to crucial data, minimizing downtime and enhancing overall system reliability. This feature makes it an excellent choice for businesses where uninterrupted access to data is paramount.

Large Form Factor (LFF)

The Large Form Factor (LFF) of the HPE P53552-B21 refers to the physical size of the hard disk drive. LFF drives are larger in size compared to their small form factor (SFF) counterparts, offering higher storage capacities. The 20TB capacity of this HDD makes it a robust solution for organizations dealing with massive datasets and demanding storage requirements.

SC 512e Multi-VendorSC 512e Technology

The HPE P53552-B21 employs SC 512e technology, where "SC" stands for sector size and "512e" denotes the emulation of 512 bytes per sector. This technology allows for compatibility with various storage systems and ensures seamless integration into multi-vendor environments. The 512e emulation is particularly beneficial for applications and systems that rely on traditional 512-byte sector sizes.

Multi-Vendor Compatibility

One notable feature of the HPE P53552-B21 is its multi-vendor compatibility. This means that the HDD can be seamlessly integrated into storage systems from different manufacturers, providing businesses with flexibility and the freedom to choose the storage infrastructure that best suits their needs. This versatility makes the HPE P53552-B21 a valuable asset for organizations with heterogeneous IT environments.

Storage Capacity

One of the most notable features of the HPE P53552-B21 is its massive storage capacity of 20TB. This makes it an ideal choice for businesses and enterprises that generate and store large amounts of data. With such a large capacity, the hard drive can store vast amounts of data, including multimedia files, databases, and virtual machine images.


In addition to its massive storage capacity, the HPE P53552-B21 also offers high-speed data access. The hard drive spins at 7200RPM, which enables it to read and write data quickly. This is especially important for business-critical applications that require real-time data access and processing.


The HPE P53552-B21 hard drive is equipped with a SAS 12Gbps interface. This interface provides a high-speed data transfer rate, enabling the hard drive to transfer large amounts of data quickly. SAS stands for Serial Attached SCSI, a technology that connects storage devices to computer systems. This technology is widely used in enterprise-level applications, where high-speed data transfer is essential.

LFF Business Critical Instant SC

The HPE P53552-B21 hard drive is designed specifically for business-critical applications. It is equipped with an LFF (Large Form Factor) to fit into enterprise-level servers and storage systems. The Instant SC (Self-Encrypting Drive) feature ensures that the data stored on the hard drive is secure and protected against unauthorized access.


The HPE P53552-B21 hard drive is a helium-filled device. Helium is an inert gas that is used to fill the drive's interior, reducing the resistance that the disks encounter when spinning. This reduces the power required to spin the disks, which improves the hard drive's performance and reduces its energy consumption. Helium-filled drives are becoming increasingly popular in enterprise-level applications, as they offer improved reliability and efficiency.

In Summary, the HPE P53552-B21 20TB 7200RPM SAS 12GBPS LFF Business Critical Instant SC 512e Multi Vendor Helium Filled Hard Disk Drive is a state-of-the-art data storage device. Its massive storage capacity, high-speed data access, and compatibility with different systems make it an ideal choice for businesses and enterprises that require reliable and efficient data storage. The hard drive's SAS 12Gbps interface, LFF business critical instant SC feature, 512e multi-vendor compatibility, and helium-filled design make it a top-of-the-line storage device with improved reliability, efficiency, and performance.

Applications and Use Cases
Data Centers

The HPE P53552-B21's robust features make it an ideal choice for data centers, where high-capacity and high-performance storage solutions are paramount. Its multi-vendor compatibility ensures easy integration into existing data center infrastructures, while the helium-filled technology contributes to energy efficiency, a crucial factor for large-scale data centers.

Enterprise Storage

Businesses with substantial storage requirements will find the 20TB capacity of the HPE P53552-B21 advantageous for enterprise storage applications. Whether hosting large databases, managing multimedia content, or supporting virtualization, this SAS HDD is well-equipped to handle the diverse needs of enterprise-level storage.
