More Specifications

The Dell PowerEdge Server 0F38352 can support Western Digital 18TB 7.2K RPM SAS 12Gbps Enterprise hard drive. This hard drive is a high-performance, high-capacity storage solution designed for use in enterprise-class servers and storage systems.

This hard drive has a 7.2K RPM spindle speed, which is slightly slower than the faster 10K or 15K RPM drives but provides a good balance between performance and capacity. The SAS interface supports 12 Gbps data transfer rates, which is faster than the previous SAS 6 Gbps and SATA 3 Gbps interfaces, providing faster data access and better performance.

The Western Digital 18TB enterprise-class hard drive is designed for use in 24x7 operation environments and can handle a high workload rate. It has a large storage capacity making it ideal for use in data centers, cloud storage, and other large-scale storage applications. Additionally, it's built with advanced technologies such as enhanced error correction, advanced power management, and vibration protection to ensure reliability and data integrity.

Capacity and Performance
  • Storage Capacity The Western Digital 0F38352 Ultrastar DC HC550 is known for its impressive storage capacity. With a whopping 18 Terabytes (TB) of storage space, it can handle vast amounts of data, making it an ideal choice for enterprise-level applications, including data centers, cloud storage, and big data analytics.
  • Rotational Speed (RPM) This hard drive operates at 7200 Revolutions Per Minute (RPM), which is considered a high rotational speed for hard drives. This high RPM ensures quick data access and faster data transfer rates, improving the overall performance of your server. It's particularly beneficial for applications that require rapid data retrieval and processing, such as real-time data analytics and database management.
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) Hard Drive

Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is a computer bus interface for connecting host bus adapters to mass storage devices such as hard drives and solid-state drives. SAS is the successor to the parallel SCSI bus and is designed to be faster and more reliable. It uses serial signaling technology, allowing higher data transfer rates and longer cable lengths than parallel SCSI. SAS also supports more devices on a single bus, which can increase storage capacity and improve performance. It is commonly used in enterprise storage systems and servers, and can also be found in workstations and high-end PCs. SAS is backward compatible with SATA, SAS drives can be connected to SATA controller and vice versa.

Use Cases and ApplicationsData Centers

Data centers are the backbone of modern digital infrastructure, handling vast amounts of data and serving as the foundation for cloud computing, online services, and more. The Ultrastar DC HC550 is well-suited for data center applications, thanks to its high capacity and reliability, making it a cost-effective choice for large-scale data storage and processing.

Cloud Storage

Cloud storage services rely on massive storage capacities and high-speed data access to meet the demands of their users. The Ultrastar DC HC550's 18TB capacity and 7200 RPM speed make it an excellent choice for cloud storage providers looking to deliver reliable and high-performance storage solutions to their clients.

Big Data Analytics

In the realm of big data analytics, where large datasets are processed and analyzed to extract valuable insights, storage performance is crucial. This hard drive's high RPM and 12GBPS data transfer rate enable faster data access and processing, making it a preferred choice for big data analytics applications.

Database Management

Database management systems rely on fast and reliable storage to ensure efficient data retrieval and management. The Ultrastar DC HC550's 7200 RPM and generous buffer size help improve the performance of database servers, reducing query response times and enhancing overall productivity.

Interface and Connectivity
  • Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) The Western Digital 0F38352 Ultrastar DC HC550 utilizes a Serial-Attached SCSI (SAS) interface. SAS is a robust and reliable interface commonly used in enterprise environments. It offers advantages like data integrity, scalability, and multiple-device connections. This makes it a suitable choice for demanding server applications where data reliability and high performance are critical.
  • Data Transfer Rate (12 Gigabits Per Second - 12GBPS) One of the standout features of this hard drive is its impressive data transfer rate. It supports a blazing fast 12 gigabytes per Second (12GBPS) data transfer rate, which is significantly faster than traditional SATA interfaces. This high-speed interface ensures that data can be transferred to and from the drive swiftly, reducing latency and enhancing the overall server performance.
PowerEdge Server HDD

The Dell PowerEdge Server 0F38352 is a rack-mountable server that is designed for enterprise use. It is part of Dell's 14th generation of PowerEdge servers and is built on the Intel Xeon Scalable processor platform. The server supports a large amount of memory and storage and can be configured to meet a wide range of business needs.

Western Digital is a well-known brand of hard drives and solid-state drives that is known for its high performance and reliability. This particular drive is a high-capacity hard drive that can store a large amount of data, making it ideal for use in data centers and other high-storage applications.

Buffer Size and Technology
  • 512 Megabyte (MB) Buffer The Western Digital 0F38352 Ultrastar DC HC550 is equipped with a generous 512 Megabyte (MB) buffer. The buffer, also known as cache, serves as a temporary storage location for frequently accessed data, helping to improve data read and write speeds. This large buffer size is particularly advantageous for applications with large data sets and random access patterns, as it minimizes data retrieval delays.
  • Advanced Caching Technology (512E) This hard drive features advanced 512E (512 Emulation) technology, which allows it to emulate 512-byte sectors while actually using 4K (4096-byte) sectors. This technology is essential for ensuring compatibility with older systems and applications that rely on 512-byte sector drives. It provides a seamless transition to modern, larger sector sizes while maintaining backward compatibility.
