HP 6Gb/sec SAS Enterprise and Midline hard drives deliver high performance solutions for hosting high transaction based applications. Available in HP hot plug carriers or non-hot plug. The HP SAS Enterprise and Midline hard drives come in both 2.5in (SFF) and 3.5in (LFF) industry standard form factors and are available in a variety of capacity points to meet a wide range of requirements. The SAS interface was designed and engineered for high availability, enterprise-class data storage where performance, reliability and data integrity are crucial.
Performance and Reliability for Multiple Application Environments.
High reliability for Mission Critical applications. High availability for Business Critical applications. Robust SAS interface (dual port, full duplex). Ideal for transaction processing, database applications, analytics, high performance computing and business applications. New universal hot plug carriers exclusively for HP ProLiant Gen8 servers. Maintaining existing universal hot plug carriers to support HP ProLiant G7 and earlier servers and server storage.
- Only those drives whose performance is suitable for an enterprise environment are selected through the HP qualification process and are labeled "best-in-class." All drives are proven to be reliable and tuned for optimum performance in the HP equipment for which they were designed.
- SAS enables one system design to deploy either SAS or SATA devices. This enables a flexible solution in offering a choice in storage devices based on what attributes are required
- The high rotational speeds of SCSI drives (10K and 15K rpm), combined with low seek times and higher onboard processing power, result in the highest performing drives available. SAS meets these performance demands while providing a highly scalable, high performance storage interconnect.
