The 4TB SC Midline 512e 7200 rpm SAS-3 3.5" Performance Internal HDD from HP is designed for servers and storage solutions where high capacities are required, along with moderately-priced reliability and performance for non-mission critical, low workload applications, such as disk backup, archival, and reference applications. Additionally, its Advanced Format 512e means it is intended for servers and storage solutions that are 4K aligned, and as a member of the Performance series, it will deliver improved speed. This drive has a capacity of 4TB, a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, a SAS-3 12 Gb/s interface, and a 3.5" form factor. It comes installed in a Hot Plug SmartDrive carrier, which helps to enable a more balanced system architecture for unified storage, improved performance, and greater reliability. HP SmartDrive is also able to handle larger amounts of data, reduce overall initialization times, and protect against multi-day outages and data loss.
HP SmartDrive is compatible with Gen8 and Gen9 HPE ProLiant Servers, and also maintains backward compatibility with existing standard hot plug carriers to provide support for HPE ProLiant G7 and earlier servers and storage enclosures. This SAS drive is protected by a limited 1-year warranty, regardless of the warranty period for the system in which it is installed.
To use hard drives exceeding 2.2TB, you must create a boot volume using offline ACU version 8.75 or later. HPE Smart Array controllers do not support boot volumes exceeding 2.2TB.
