Product Information

The 44W2243 IBM 450GB 15K RPM SAS 6GBPS Hot Swap LFF Hard Drive is a high-performance storage device designed for enterprise-level servers and storage systems. It is a large form factor (LFF) drive, meaning it is larger than the typical 2.5-inch small form factor (SFF) drives commonly found in laptops and desktops. In this article, we will discuss the key features and benefits of this hard drive, and how it can be used in a variety of applications.

Capacity and Speed

The 44W2243 IBM hard drive has a massive storage capacity of 450GB, which is enough to store large amounts of data such as multimedia files, databases, and applications. It uses the SAS interface, which allows for a maximum data transfer rate of 6 gigabits per second (Gbps), making it an ideal choice for data-intensive applications that require high-speed data access.

The hard drive also has a rotational speed of 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM), which is significantly faster than the typical 7,200 RPM found in consumer-grade hard drives. The faster RPM allows for faster data access times, resulting in quicker application loading and faster file transfers.

Hot Swap Capability

The 44W2243 IBM hard drive is hot-swappable, which means it can be replaced or removed while the system is running without shutting down the server or storage system. This feature allows for easy maintenance and upgrades without interrupting business operations.

Hot-swapping also helps in minimizing downtime, as it eliminates the need to power down the entire system to replace a faulty hard drive. This feature is particularly useful in mission-critical applications where downtime is not an option.


The 44W2243 IBM hard drive is compatible with a wide range of server and storage systems from IBM and other manufacturers. It uses the 3.5-inch LFF form factor, which is a standard size used in many enterprise-level storage systems. It is also compatible with the SAS 6Gbps interface, which is a widely-used interface in the enterprise storage industry.

Reliability and Durability

The 44W2243 IBM hard drive is designed for maximum reliability and durability. It features advanced error correction codes (ECC) that help to prevent data corruption and ensure data integrity. It also has a built-in self-monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology (SMART) that constantly monitors the health of the hard drive and alerts the system administrator if any potential issues are detected.

The hard drive also has a Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) rating of 1.6 million hours, which means it can operate continuously for a long time without failure. This high MTBF rating makes it an ideal choice for mission-critical applications where downtime can be costly and disruptive.


The 44W2243 IBM hard drive can be used in a variety of applications that require high-speed data access, large storage capacity, and high reliability. Some of the common applications include:

  • Data centers: The 44W2243 IBM hard drive is an ideal choice for enterprise-level data centers that require high-speed data access and large storage capacity. It can be used for applications such as online transaction processing (OLTP), data warehousing, and virtualization.
  • Video surveillance: The 44W2243 IBM hard drive is also suitable for video surveillance systems that require large storage capacity and high-speed data access. It can store video footage for long periods without compromising on performance.
  • High-performance computing: The 44W2243 IBM hard drive can also be used in high-performance computing (HPC) systems that require large storage capacity and fast data access times
