This rpm Nearline SAS drive is designed from the ground up specifically for enterprise-class Nearline storage, providing the capacity, performance, and reliability to support high-density tiered storage applications.
Because applications requiring a combination of capacity, speed, and data integrity can also be classified as tier 2, Constellation drives are purpose-built not only for high capacity, but also for high performance and data integrity at the system level. Enhanced command queuing can accommodate up to 16 host connections to help eliminate single points of failure, while dual-port capabilities help provide redundancy for failover and data recovery. SAS technology helps reduce data corruption by using end-to-end initiator-target nexus checking for data moving to and from the drive and provides advanced error-reporting features. SAS drives can also help ensure operational continuity by offering seamless compatibility with existing SCSI software and middleware.
