Performance and Reliability
The 00WK897 IBM 8TB SAS 12GBPS 7.2K RPM 4KN Nearline Hard Drive is designed to provide a balance of performance and reliability for nearline storage applications.
In terms of performance, the drive has a data transfer rate of 12 Gbps and a rotational speed of 7,200 RPM. These specifications allow for fast data access and good performance for applications that require nearline storage, such as data archiving, backup and recovery, and other large data storage use cases.
In terms of reliability, the drive is built to meet high standards of durability and reliability. It has been tested and qualified to withstand the rigors of enterprise-class storage environments, and it is designed to run continuously in a 24x7x365 operation. The drive is also built with advanced error correction and data protection features, which help to protect against data loss and corruption in the event of a drive failure.
Additionally, the drive has the 4Kn Advanced Format, which increases the physical sector size on hard disk drives from 512 bytes to 4,096 bytes. This allows for more efficient use of disk space and improved error correction capabilities.It's important to note that performance and reliability can be affected by a variety of factors including the environment where the drive is used and the workload on the drive. It is recommended to check the technical specifications of the system or controller before purchasing this hard drive to ensure that it meets the performance and reliability requirements of the intended application.
Nearline Drive Characteristics
The 00WK897 IBM 8TB SAS 12GBPS 7.2K RPM 4KN Nearline Hard Drive is a type of storage solution that is designed for use in nearline storage systems. These drives are typically used in data centers, and other enterprise-level storage systems where large amounts of data need to be stored for extended periods of time.
Nearline drives have a slower data transfer rate compared to traditional performance drives, but they offer a lower cost per GB of storage and are suitable for storing data that is accessed less frequently. They are also designed to be more energy efficient and have a longer lifespan.
The 00WK897 IBM 8TB SAS 12GBPS 7.2K RPM 4KN Nearline Hard Drive has a rotational speed of 7,200 RPM which is slower than performance drives and it has a lower data transfer rate of 12 Gbps. The drive has a storage capacity of 8TB which is a large amount of storage capacity for a nearline hard drive. The drive utilizes SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface which is a high-speed data transfer interface designed for use in enterprise-level storage systems and servers.
The drive also supports the 4Kn Advanced Format which increases the physical sector size on hard disk drives from 512 bytes to 4,096 bytes. This allows for more efficient use of disk space and improved error correction capabilities.It's important to note that the drive's characteristics may vary depending on the specific make and model of the system or controller, so it is recommended to check the technical specifications of the system or controller before purchasing this hard drive to ensure that it meets the requirements of the intended application.
The 00WK897 IBM 8TB SAS 12GBPS 7.2K RPM 4KN Nearline Hard Drive has a rotational speed of 7200 RPM. This means that the drive's platters rotate at 7200 revolutions per minute. This is considered to be a lower rotational speed compared to performance-oriented hard drives, which typically have a rotational speed of 10,000 RPM or higher.
A lower rotational speed in nearline drives is a trade-off for their lower cost per GB of storage and longer lifespan. The slower rotational speed also helps to reduce power consumption and heat generation, making them more suitable for use in data centers and other enterprise-level storage systems.
The 7200 RPM rotational speed of the drive allows for a slower data transfer rate compared to performance-oriented hard drives, but it is still fast enough for most nearline storage use cases. The drive's 12 Gbps data transfer rate allows for faster data access and better performance for applications that require fast data access such as large data analytics, virtualization, and databases.
It's important to note that the drive's rotational speed may vary depending on the specific make and model of the system or controller, so it is recommended to check the technical specifications of the system or controller before purchasing this hard drive to ensure that it meets the rotational speed requirements of the intended application.
