FNW88 – Dell PowerEdge PowerVault 1TB 7.2k NL-SAS HDD Technology – 9ZM273-150, ST1000NM0023, 0FNW88
SAS drives are base hard drives in Dell PowerEdge servers and PowerVault storage arrays. SAS offers several advantages over the older interface:
- Reduced cable size and cost (7 conductors instead of 40)
- Native hot swapping
- Faster data transfer through higher signaling rates
- More efficient transfer through a I/O queuing protocol
Enterprise SAS 3.5″ MTBF, like FNW88 / 0FNW88 at 1.4 million hours versus consumer 3.5″ SAS at 550K hours MTBF. Dell’s enterprise SAS solutions for PowerEdge servers and PowerVault enclosures, is a SAS interface for hard drives featuring specific design and manufacturing processes enabling 24x7x365 operations and 1.4 million hours MTBF within an enterprise environment.
- Best dollar per gigabyte advantage within enterprise-class hard drives
- Rated for 24-hour by 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year operation
Enterprise SAS drives offer similar dollar-per-gigabyte advantages as consumer SAS for tier-2 storage while also providing key design and process enhancements to allow for successful integration with specific Dell RAID controllers as part of Dell’s server and storage solutions. While typical SAS drives commonly found in the consumer, desktop and notebook arena lack the design and reliability characteristics required for the more strenuous enterprise environment. These consumer (or client)-grade hard drives are typically rated at around 550K hours MTBF (mean time between failures) and not rated for 24x7x365 usage. While these consumer-grade drives are typically OK to utilize as boot devices, their capability to perform within the enterprise is limited. Enterprise SAS drives are rated for 24x7x365 operation, have Dell developed and certified firmware to ensure compatibility within Dell servers and storage, and also are typically equipped with rotational vibration circuitry to allow for the adjacencies of multiple drives, servers and storage enclosures common within the enterprise.
PowerEdge PowerVault FNW88 1TB NL-SAS 7.2k HDD Benefits – 9ZM273-150, ST1000NM0023, 0FNW88
Dell OEM drives are dependable, high-capacity, and ideal for adding data storage. Also known as Tier-2, these nearline, business-critical 5.4K and 7.2K rpm drives combine specific design and manufacturing processes for hard drives rated at 24x7x365 operations for true enterprise duty cycles. The main emphasis is on an exceptional dollars/gigabyte advantage over Tier-1 storage. This drive classification includes:
- Nearline SAS — Combines the head, media and rotational speed of traditional enterprise-class SAS drives with the fully capable SAS interface typical of 10K/15K rpm SAS drives. These drives are rated at 1.4 million hours MTBF.
- Enterprise SAS — True enterprise-class specifications, rated at 1.4 million hours MTBF, these drives provide the traditional SAS interface, but with capabilities far exceeding consumer grade SAS drives.
FNW88 / 9ZM273-150 / ST1000NM0023 / 0FNW88 – Dell PowerEdge PowerVault 1TB 7.2k SAS HDD Common Applications
Dell PowerVault PowerEdge Nearline SAS HDD with part numbers FNW88, 9ZM273-150 & ST1000NM0023 is best suited for higher-capacity environments to help realize cost and capacity benefits. Sequential access applications have a tendency to maximize any caching advantages of the storage system, and take advantage of the higher density SAS disk drives. In these applications, the speed at which the drive can transfer data from the platter has the greatest effect on overall performance. Thus, medium-to-large block and sequential I/O applications can reap the greatest benefits from the drive’s higher area-bit densities.
