Product description

The 4TB 7200 rpm SAS-2 3.5" Internal SC Midline 512e Hard Drive 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. 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.

General Features

  • HPE Server SAS Hard Drives deliver moderately-priced reliability and performance for non-mission critical, low workload applications, such as disk backup, archival, and reference applications.
  • The Advanced Format 512e is designed for 4KiB aligned operating systems and applications. They also support legacy 512K native applications.
  • Robust SAS interface for increased performance.
  • HPE Smart Carrier for HPE ProLiant Servers (both Gen8 and Gen9 are supported). They maintain backward compatibility with existing standard hot-plug carriers to provide support for HPE ProLiant G7 and earlier servers and server storage enclosures.
    Pre-Failure Alert
  • When used in conjunction with a SMART Array Controller and Systems Insight Manager, the SMART-capable firmware in HPE 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.
  • To support HPE hard drives exceeding 2.2TB, HPE Smart Array Firmware version 5.0 or later is required for the following controllers:
  • HPE Smart Array P212 Controller
  • HPE Smart Array P410 Controller
  • HPE Smart Array P411 Controller
  • HPE Smart Array P711m Controller
  • HPE Smart Array P812 Controller

    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.
