IBM SATA Hard Drives
IBM SATA / Serial ATA Hard Drives are used to provide extremely large storage capacities in servers that use hot swappable (hot-swap) drives with a SAS / SATA hot pluggable backplane. Using a hard drive tray or caddy or sled, hard drives are replaced by simply sliding and clipping the drive into the front of the Systems Storage server. IBM SATA hard drives can also be used in an internal, non hot-swap application, in which they are connected by a cable to a connector on the SAS / SATA controller.
