46X5428, 46X5427, 2857-4101 IBM 600GB 10k RPM 6Gbps SAS 2.5″ HDD Technology
IBM SAS disk shelves are designed to deliver exceptional resiliency and reliability with redundant components, cross-bar switches, alternate control path (ACP), and nondisruptive firmware upgrades. Disk shelves which use 2.5” small form factor drives deliver double the storage density and higher performance density while requiring significantly less power. The 6Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) interface support the reliability required in the most demanding enterprise computing environments like on-line transaction processing, intensive data analysis, multi-user applications and data warehousing.
IBM 46X5428 Tech Highlights
- SAS interface for reliable data throughput
- Advanced Power Management optimizes power consumption
- Largest 64MB cache buffer in the industry
- Spinning at 10,000 RPM for mission critical performance
Industry-best performance in a 10K RPM 2.5-inch form factor
IBM 46X5428, 46X5427, 2857-4101 600GB 10K 6Gbps SAS Hard Drive Features
The IBM 6Gbps SAS hard drive with part numbers 46X5428, 46X5427, and 2857-4101 is a great addition to your storage infrastructure. SAS drives provide reliability and maintain their performance under more difficult conditions, ultimately performing much better than either nearline-SAS or SATA disks. SAS drives are built to more exacting standards than other types of disks, are more efficient, and are a magnitude safer than NL-SAS or SATA drives.
