Overview
Bottom rule

The 300 GB 10K rpm SATA 2.5-inch NHS and Slim-HS HDDs provide 2.5-inch form factor options that can be used as hot-swap or non-hot-swap drives. The addition of a 10K rpm offering to the IBM BladeCenter blade family of 2.5-inch SATA HDDs will offer the highest-performing SFF options and a wider selection of choices to satisfy the range of potential applications. These new drives are positioned at the top of our SATA SFF HDD line based on increased performance. Key features and benefits include:

  • 10,000 rpm speed to optimize performance
  • Superior reliability that enables operation in RAID environments without compromising application performance or availability

Performance

300 GB performance characteristics include:

  • Formatted capacity: 300,000 MB
  • Drive to host interface that supports 3.0 Gb/s burst rate
  • Drive media to buffer interface that supports sustained interface data transfers of up to 120 MB/s average
  • Spindle speed of 10,000 rpm
  • Average latency of 3.0 ms
  • Average seek on reads of less than 4.2 ms
  • Hot-swap capability
  • SATA interface

Reliability

  • SATA compliance enables HDDs to connect directly into BladeCenter systems.
  • S.M.A.R.T Technology allows software utilities to alert you of impending drive failures so replacements can be made before a problem occurs.
