The Seagate ST14000NM004J SAS-12GBPS 14TB 7.2K RPM 256MB Hard Drive is a high-performance, high-reliability hard drive that is designed for use in enterprise and data center environments.
The drive utilizes the SAS interface with 12 Gbps data transfer rate, which provides fast data transfer and low latency, resulting in fast data access and retrieval. It also features a large storage capacity of 14TB, which makes it suitable for use in large data storage applications, such as data warehousing, big data analytics, and video surveillance.
The drive also has a fast rotation speed of 7200 RPM, which allows for faster data access times, making it well-suited for use in environments where data needs to be accessed quickly, such as in a database or file server.
The drive also has a large cache buffer of 256MB, which allows for faster data access and retrieval, and improves overall performance. This is particularly useful for applications that require high IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second).
It's worth noting that the drive does not have any protection mechanism like encryption or security feature, but it can be added to the storage system in which it's being installed, if necessary. Additionally, the drive is designed to handle heavy workloads and 24x7x365 operation, which makes it suitable for use in enterprise and data center environments where high-performance and high-reliability are essential.
Serial-Attached SCSI HDD
The Seagate ST14000NM004J 12GBPS 14TB 7.2K RPM 256MB Hard Drive uses the SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) interface.
SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) is a high-speed data transfer interface that is typically used in enterprise-grade servers and storage systems. It is designed for use with high-performance, high-reliability storage devices such as hard disk drives and solid state drives.
The SAS interface is a point-to-point connection, meaning that each SAS drive has its own dedicated connection to the SAS controller, which allows for faster data transfer speeds and more reliable data transfer compared to other interfaces such as SATA. SAS also supports expanders, which allows to connect multiple drives to a single controller, increasing the scalability and flexibility of the storage.
The Seagate 12GBPS 14TB 7.2K RPM 256MB Hard Drive supports 12 Gbps data transfer rate which is double the standard 6 Gbps data transfer rate of most SAS drives, this provides fast data access and retrieval, which is ideal for high-performance, high-reliability storage devices such as hard disk drives.
It is important to note that in order to use this drive, the system must have a SAS controller and support 12 Gbps data transfer rate, otherwise, the drive may not be recognized or may not function properly. It is recommended to check the compatibility of this drive with the specific system or device it will be used in.
The Seagate ST14000NM004J SAS 12GBPS 14TB 7.2K RPM 256MB Hard Drive is designed to be compatible with servers and storage systems that support the SAS interface and 12 Gbps data transfer rate.
In order to ensure compatibility, it is important to check that the system or device the drive will be used in has a SAS controller and supports 12 Gbps data transfer rate. Additionally, it's important to check that the system has enough power supply and cooling to handle the heat generated by the drive.
It's also important to ensure that the drive's physical dimensions are compatible with the system's drive bays. The drive has a 3.5-inch form factor, which is the standard size for most internal hard drives and it should fit in most standard drive bays.
It's also important to verify that the system's operating system and other software are compatible with the drive. The drive is designed to work with the most common operating systems such as Windows, Linux, and Mac OS.
It's recommended to check with the manufacturer of the system or device for specific compatibility information and consult the documentation for the drive for any additional information on compatibility.
