The NetApp X291A-R5 450GB 15k RPM 4Gbps Fibre Channel 3.5″ hard drive is also known by part numbers 108-00205, SP-291A-R5, and others listed below.
X291A-R5 / 108-00205 / SP-291A-R5 NetApp 450GB 15k 4Gbps Fibre Channel HDD Technology
The NetApp X291A-R5 Fibre Channel Hard Drive is a great addition to your Storage Infrastructure. Fibre Channel drives provide great speed and reliability, and a smaller and faster drive spreads the workload of your storage systems across a greater spindle count, increasing overall performance.
The NetApp X291A-R5 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) 450GB hard disk drives dramatically increase performance through improvements in disk operations such as rotational latency and seek rates – the factors that most directly affect access times. The 450GB 15k RPM hard disk drives deliver 3.4 ms average read seek times and 2.0 ms average rotational latency times – both the fastest available for drives of these capacities available on the market.
Applications of the 450GB 15k RPM Drives X291A-R5 / 108-00205 / SP-291A-R5
Using the 15k RPM drives such as part numbers X291A-R5, 108-00205 & SP-291A-R5 in 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.
