EMC VX-VS15-300 300GB 15K SAS Hard Drive Technology
SAS drives are enterprise class hard drives that out perform NL-SAS and SATA drives in virtually every way. SAS drives maintain their performance under more difficult conditions, and perform much better than NL-SAS and SATA. SAS drives are also more reliable than other spinning disk options by a factor of 10x. SAS drives have a mean time between failure (MTBF) of 1.6 million hours compared to 1.2 million hours for SATA and NL-SAS. Increase your available storage with the EMC VX-VS15-300 300GB 15K SAS hard drive. When compared to SATA, SAS drives have the following benefits:
- Dual ports allowing redundant paths
- Ability to connect a device to multiple computers
- Full SCSI command set
- Larger depth of command queues
EMC VX-VS15-300, 005049273 & 005049673 300GB 15K SAS HDD Applications
Using EMC SAS HDD with part numbers VX-VS15-300, 005049273 & 005049673 for applications that use small block, random I/O is an important factor in realizing higher performance benefits. These applications have a tendency to minimize any caching advantages of the storage system. In addition, with applications such as these, the physical access to data on the disk has the greatest effect on overall performance. These small block, random I/O applications reap the greatest benefits from storage-system performance improvements achieved through the drive’s improved seek and rotational latency times.
Some popular types of applications for the 005049273 / 005049673 / VX-VS15-300 EMC 300 GB 15K RPM SAS drives are:
- Web Server
- Data Replication
