HP SAS Enterprise and SAS Midline Hard Drives
Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) provides a superior storage solution. With some storage requirements escalating and others becoming more complex, factors such as flexibility, performance, increased reliability, greater density, security, scalability and accessibility are more critical than ever. Today's organizations consist of different kinds of environments. Enterprise data centers must be online 24X7, fulfill requests from numerous users simultaneously, and allow for constant growth and expansion while in operation. Other customer environments require high capacity storage and high data availability for low I/O environments. HP's portfolio of SAS drives meets all these demands.
What is SAS? Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) is the evolution of the SCSI interface. SAS Enterprise drives satisfy the enterprise data center requirement of scalability, performance, reliability and manageability, while providing an enterprise storage infrastructure for both enterprise SAS drives and SATA disk drives. SAS Midline drives provide the lowest dollars per gigabyte and economical reliability and performance. The SAS interface is compatible with SATA devices. This compatibility provides users with unprecedented choices for server and storage subsystem deployment
Drive Quality and Performance Today's distributed enterprise is seeing larger, more complex applications, an increase of mission-critical data moving to the server, increasing demand for transaction processing and critical server consolidation. In this environment, storage has become a critical component of the information system, significantly defining both the systems reliability and performance. This is why HP drives undergo an intense qualification process that eliminates firmware and O/S incompatibilities. All drive firmware is specific to our drives and is designed to maximize both functionality and compatibility. All drives are proven to perform in the HP systems for which they were designed.
While selecting the drives in our Enterprise portfolio, only those drives whose performance is suitable for an enterprise environment are selected through the HP qualification process and are labeled "best-in-class." All our Enterprise drives are proven to be reliable and tuned for optimum performance in the HP equipment for which they were designed. The drives in our Midline portfolio undergo a similar qualification process to ensure that you get the economical reliability and performance you need for your low workload (less than 40% I/O) environments.

Pre-Failure Alert When used in conjunction with a SMART Array Controller and Systems Insight Manager, the SMART capable firmware in HP hard drives enables extensive fault prediction capabilities. If potential problems develop in one of the drives, the Smart Array Controller, Systems Insight Manager and/or SMART hard disk drive lets you know in advance so you can have the drive replaced, before it fails, under warranty.
NOTE: All drives are protected by a Pre-Failure Alert when used with a HP Smart Array controller and Systems Insight Manager, allowing hard drives to be replaced before failure under warranty. In addition, all drives are covered by a one or three-year limited on-site warranty period for the system in which they are installed. The drive warranty is automatically uplifted when used in a server or MSA for which a Care Pack is purchased. Please see the Support Services section below for additional services.
Integration Many issues customers have with third party drives are "simple" integration issues. When buying from another supplier, there is no guarantee that a drive has been correctly set for proper operation with ProLiant servers and storage systems. These incompatibilities can create problems in configuration, can rob your system of performance, or at their worst, can cause you to lose data. HP hard drives are specifically designed and tested for flawless operation in your HP equipment. The integration of hard drives in HP systems means that cables, SCSI ID settings, termination, hot plug drive trays and firmware are right for your ProLiant server or storage system.

SAS Enterprise hard drives have a 3 year limited warranty regardless of the warranty period for the system in which they are installed.
SAS Midline hard drives have a 1 year limited warranty regardless of the warranty period for the system in which they are installed.
SAS Hot Plug SFF (2.5-inch) Enterprise (ENT) Drives
Application SAS Enterprise drives are intended for servers and storage solutions with mission critical and high work load intensive applications where 24/7 duty cycles are a requirement, such as database applications and high transaction level applications.
Transfer rate The components of a storage subsystem (e.g. the drive, the HBA/controller, firmware, and the server backplane) should operate at the same data transfer rate or the system bandwidth will be negotiated down to an acceptable level for all components.
