More Information on the IBM HDD

The 81Y9650 hard disk drive is a high-performance, small form factor (SFF) drive designed for use in servers. It was manufactured by IBM, a multinational technology company that produces hardware, software, and consulting services for a variety of industries. This hard disk drive has a storage capacity of 900GB, which means it can store a large amount of data. It also has a speed of 10000 revolutions per minute (RPM), making it suitable for applications that require fast data access.

  • In the ever-evolving landscape of information technology, data storage solutions play a pivotal role in ensuring the seamless functioning of servers and other computing systems. One such essential component is the IBM 81Y9650 900GB Hard Disk Drive (HDD), designed for servers that demand high-performance storage. In this detailed overview, we will delve into the specifications, features, and benefits of the IBM 81Y9650, focusing on its capacity, rotational speed, interface, form factor, and hot-swappable nature.


  • The IBM 81Y9650 boasts a significant storage capacity of 900 gigabytes (GB). This ample space is particularly crucial for servers that handle large volumes of data, ensuring they can store and retrieve information efficiently. The robust capacity makes this HDD an excellent choice for enterprises with demanding storage requirements.

Rotational Speed

  • A defining characteristic of the IBM 81Y9650 is its impressive rotational speed of 10,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). This high RPM contributes to faster data access and retrieval times, enhancing overall system performance. The combination of substantial storage capacity and a swift rotational speed positions this HDD as a reliable solution for applications requiring quick data access.


  • The IBM 81Y9650 utilizes the Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface, a technology known for its speed and reliability in data transfer. Operating at 6 gigabits per second (Gbps), this interface ensures efficient communication between the HDD and the server. The SAS interface is renowned for its scalability and performance benefits, making it suitable for enterprise-level applications where data transfer speed is a critical factor.

Form Factor

  • The compact 2.5-inch Small Form Factor (SFF) of the IBM 81Y9650 is designed with space efficiency in mind. This form factor is notably smaller than its 3.5-inch counterparts, allowing servers to accommodate more drives in a given space. The SFF design is particularly advantageous for data centers and server rooms where optimizing physical space is essential. The 2.5-inch SFF form factor, coupled with the HDD's high capacity, provides a balanced solution for storage needs without compromising on space.

Hot Swap Capability

  • One of the standout features of the IBM 81Y9650 is its hot-swappable nature. The term "hot swap" refers to the ability to replace or add components without shutting down the entire system. In the context of this HDD, it means that IT administrators can remove and replace the drive while the server is still running. This feature is crucial for minimizing downtime during maintenance or upgrades, contributing to higher system availability and overall operational efficiency.

Compatibility and Tray Inclusion

  • The IBM 81Y9650 is engineered to seamlessly integrate into various server environments. The inclusion of a tray simplifies the installation process, ensuring compatibility with servers that support hot-swappable drives. The tray serves as a secure and convenient mounting mechanism, facilitating the smooth integration of the HDD into the server chassis.

Form Factor: 2.5 Inch SFF

  • The 81Y9650 hard disk drive has a form factor of 2.5 inches, which means it is a small form factor (SFF) drive. This form factor is commonly used in servers and other computing systems that require high-performance storage in a compact form factor. SFF drives are smaller and lighter than their larger counterparts, which makes them ideal for use in systems with limited space.
  • The small form factor of the 81Y9650 hard disk drive also allows for greater flexibility in system design. It can be used in a variety of configurations, including as a standalone drive or in a RAID array. This flexibility makes it a popular choice for use in enterprise-class storage systems.

Storage Capacity: 900GB (Gigabyte)

  • The 81Y9650 hard disk drive has a storage capacity of 900GB, which means it can store a large amount of data. This capacity is suitable for use in a variety of applications, including databases, email servers, and file servers. It can also be used in virtualized environments to store virtual machine images and other virtualized workloads.
  • The large storage capacity of the 81Y9650 hard disk drive is achieved through the use of advanced storage technologies, including perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) and helium-filled drives. These technologies allow for higher data densities and greater storage capacities, while maintaining reliability and performance.


  • The 81Y9650 hard disk drive has a speed of 10000 revolutions per minute (RPM), which means it can access data quickly. This speed is achieved through the use of high-performance motors and advanced disk head technologies that allow for faster data access times.
  • The high speed of the 81Y9650 hard disk drive makes it suitable for use in applications that require fast data access, such as transactional databases and online transaction processing (OLTP) systems. It can also be used in high-performance computing environments to store and access large data sets quickly.


  • The 81Y9650 hard disk drive uses a Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface, which provides high-speed data transfer rates of up to 6 gigabits per second (Gbps). SAS is a high-performance interface that is commonly used in enterprise-class storage systems. It provides advanced features such as hot swapping, which allows drives to be replaced while the system is running, and error correction, which helps to ensure data integrity.
  • The 6Gbps data transfer rate of the 81Y9650 hard disk drive allows for fast data transfers between the drive and the host system. This high-speed interface is ideal for use in applications that require fast data access, such as online transaction processing (OLTP) systems and data warehousing environments.
