Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS)
Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) is a type of data storage interface that uses a serial protocol to transfer data between devices. It is typically used for high-speed storage devices such as hard drives and solid-state drives (SSDs). SAS drives have a faster data transfer rate than traditional Serial ATA (SATA) drives, and they also support more advanced features such as hot-swapping and dual-porting. The specific model number you provided, 90Y8954 IBM 500GB RPM 7.2K SAS 6GBPS SFF G2 Hot Swap Hard Drive, is a SAS hard drive with a capacity of 500GB, a rotation speed of 7200 RPM, a data transfer rate of 6 Gbps, and the ability to be hot-swapped.
The 90Y8954 IBM 500GB RPM 7.2K SAS 6GBPS SFF G2 Hot Swap Hard Drive is a hard disk drive (HDD) that uses the Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface to connect to a computer. It has the following features:
- Capacity: 500GB, which means it can store up to 500 gigabytes of data.
- Rotation speed: 7200 RPM (revolutions per minute), which is the speed at which the disk inside the drive spins. A higher RPM means faster data access times.
- SAS interface: SAS is a faster and more advanced version of the Serial ATA (SATA) interface that is commonly used for storage devices. SAS supports faster data transfer rates (up to 6 Gbps in this case) and more advanced features such as dual-porting and hot-swapping.
- Form factor: SFF (small form factor), which means it is smaller in size than a standard 3.5-inch hard drive.
- G2 Hot Swap: This refers to the drive's ability to be hot-swapped. Hot-swapping means that the drive can be removed and replaced while the system is still powered on, without interrupting the operation of the system.
This hard drive can be used in a server, workstation, or any other computer that supports SAS interface, and it's suitable for applications that require fast data access and large storage capacity.
Form factor refers to the physical dimensions and layout of a computer component, such as a hard drive. The form factor of a hard drive determines how it can be installed in a computer, and what type of enclosure or drive bay it will fit into.
The 90Y8954 IBM 500GB RPM 7.2K SAS 6GBPS SFF G2 Hot Swap Hard Drive is a small form factor (SFF) hard drive. SFF drives are smaller in size than standard 3.5-inch hard drives, and typically have a 2.5-inch form factor. This allows them to be used in smaller devices, such as laptops and smaller server or desktop computers, or in space-constrained environments where a 3.5-inch drive may not fit.
SFF hard drives are designed to fit in specific drive bays or enclosures that are designed for their form factor. They will typically have a smaller connector and power requirements than a 3.5-inch hard drive.
It's important to note that the form factor of a hard drive is separate from its interface, which in this case is SAS. A hard drive can have the same form factor but use different interfaces such as SAS, SCSI, or SATA.

Hard drives that come with the Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface are designed to handle high-performance enterprise requirements. These drives offer the benefits of backward compatibility with SCSI interfaces. They also offer interoperability with SATA drives. This allows them to bring a perfect mix of flexibility and cost-effectiveness to enterprises.
SAS 6Gbps hard drives are suitable for use in enterprise servers and storage arrays. They are among the most improved storage devices for advanced operations, including server virtualization, high-end computing, and data analytics.
Fast & Consistent Performance
Hard drives now leverage the SAS 6GBPs architecture interface to offer high-level performance. The design of these drives allows them to carry out several operations effectively. These drives support dual-port operation with features that improve reliability.
SAS 6Gbps hard drives have gotten the most extreme consideration in the market because of its superior performance. Their benefits permit them to be valuable for a wide array of uses. These drives have consistent execution specs to help them complete successive tasks. Customers will discover SAS hard drives with structure factors inside the scope of 2.5Inches and 3.5Inches, making them a minimal choice for compact use.
Besides, they highlight progressive SAS error control that guarantees a significant mistake adjustment and information assurance level. Additionally, there is a mistake recuperation innovation blend that assists with securing client information and forestall loss of data.
The SAS 6Gbps accompanies a multi-way association, which gives space to failover excess. With this, clients can be certain that there will be no single point of disappointment.
Safeguard Data Integrity
SAS 6Gbps HDDs help enterprises to keep the integrity of their data safe. They do this by using a comprehensive verification and correction technology. SAS-based hard drives support the use of active controllers that can host connections such as iSCSI and Fibre Channel.
SAS 6Gbps drives are built for rugged operation and day to day enterprise activities. They work with several components to provide best-in-class performances. The building of every component of a SAS 6Gbps hard drive allows them to handle such rigor.
SAS 6Gbps drives' adaptability is probably the reason users find them very useful. These drives have arranged adaptability, which allows them to work consummately with a few gadgets without adjustment or changes. These types of SAS hard drives can offer clients the best universe of adaptability. Along the line, permitting them to help use with different drives.
A large number of them come with a Universal Serial controller for consistent framework support. SAS 6Gbps HDDs can likewise be parceled in a capacity pool and allocated to servers and systems for intensive applications. They are an ideal fit for a wide range of usage framework with the ability to perform at the highest levels
Seamless Scalability & Improved Cost Effectiveness
