We are providing specifications below to explain why you should consider purchasing the IBM 6TB-7.2K RPM SAS-12GBPS Hard Drive, including a general overview, performance specifications, relevant images, media files, and technical information about the 00FN234 compatibility.


The 00FN234 IBM Hard Drive is a high-performance storage solution designed for use in enterprise-class servers and storage systems. With a capacity of 6TB, this hard drive uses SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface which provides a high data transfer rate of 12 Gbps. It also features a rotational speed of 7.2K RPM and a standard 3.5-inch form factor. The hard drive is designed for high-performance use and is optimized for storing frequently accessed data, it is also designed for high durability and reliability. The hard drive comes with a tray for easy installation and maintenance, making it a reliable and efficient option for businesses and organizations that require high storage capacity and performance.

Capacity and Interface

The 00FN234 IBM Hard Drive has a capacity of 6TB, providing ample storage space for businesses and organizations that require large amounts of data storage. With this capacity, it can store a large amount of data such as videos, images, documents, and more.

The hard drive uses SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface, which is a high-performance interface designed for enterprise-class servers and storage systems. SAS provides a faster data transfer rate of 12 Gbps, which is faster than traditional SATA interface, allowing for faster data access and retrieval. Additionally, SAS interface also supports more devices on a single cable, making it more efficient and cost-effective in terms of cabling and port utilization. This interface also supports dual-port connectivity, which provides an additional level of data protection and availability.

It's important to note that SAS hard drives are generally more expensive than SATA hard drives, but it provides higher performance and reliability in enterprise-class servers and storage systems.

Form Factor and Compatibility

The 00FN234 IBM Hard Drive has a 3.5-inch form factor, which is a standard size for enterprise-class hard drives and is compatible with most servers and storage systems that support 3.5-inch hard drives. This form factor is larger than 2.5-inch hard drives, which are typically used in laptops and other portable devices, but it allows for more storage capacity and higher performance.

In terms of compatibility, the 00FN234 IBM Hard Drive is compatible with servers and storage systems that support SAS interface and 3.5-inch hard drives. It is designed to be integrated with different enterprise-class servers and storage systems, it is compatible with most servers and storage systems that have SAS interface and are designed to support 3.5-inch form factor hard drives.

It's important to check your server or storage system's documentation or with the manufacturer to confirm compatibility with the hard drive before purchasing. It's always recommended to use the hard drives that are tested and approved by the manufacturer for the specific server or storage system to ensure optimal performance and reliability.

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.

Faster Throughput

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.

Higher Performance

SAS 12Gbps HDDs have received utmost attention in the market as a result of its 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 drives 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 a cost-effective choice for users.

Utmost Flexibility

The 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 in 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, allowing them to support use with other drives.

Increased Availability

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 rigors of heavy workloads and enterprise use. They also safeguard data integrity, thanks to their ability to comprehensively verify data and correct errors.
