NetApp X336A-R6, 108-00427, SP-336A-R6 4TB 7.2K 12Gbps NL-SAS Hard Drive Technology
NL-SAS drives have a SAS interface, but the head, media, and rotational speed of traditional enterprise-class SATA drives making them more cost-effective than other SAS drives. This NetApp technology of choice is capable of communicating at speeds of 12Gbps. Increase your available storage with the NetApp X336A-R6 hard drive.
When compared to SATA, NL-SAS drives have many benefits. These include:
- Dual ports allowing redundant paths
- Ability to connect a device to multiple computers
- Full SCSI command set
- No need for SATA interposer cards, which are needed for pseudo–dual-port high availability of SATA HDDs
- Larger depth of command queues
NetApp X336A-R6, 108-00427, SP-336A-R6 4TB 7.2K 12Gbps NL-SAS Hard Drive Applications
NetApp NL-SAS HDD with part numbers X336A-R6, 108-00427 and SP-336A-R6 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 NL-SAS hard 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.
Some popular types of applications for the X336A-R6, 108-00427, SP-336A-R6 4TB 7.2K RPM 12Gbps NL-SAS drives are:
- Disk-to-disk backup
- Large application datasets
- Cloud storage
- Massive Scale Out (MSO)
- Data warehousing & mining
- Disk-to-disk backup & archiving
- RAID arrays
- Network Attached Storage (NAS)
