Servers, storage, and networks make up a major part of the IT infrastructure within an organization. Inside data systems, drive storage is at the heart of what makes everything work. As we all know, there are two types of drives: hard disk (HDD) and solid state (SSD). In this week’s hardware feature, we will be looking at the P9L83A solid state drive manufactured by HPE.
SSDs vs. HDDs
Why use SSDs versus a HDDs? A common drawback to SSDs is that HDDs are much cheaper at around 3 cents versus 20-30 cents per gigabyte. However, the advantages of SSDs can outweigh the added costs:
- Faster boot up speeds
- Up to 30% faster than HDDs
- No moving parts, equaling quiet operation and longer life
- Lower power consumption, which saves cash
What makes HPE’s P9L83A SSDs unique among other SSDs? This drive was developed to be compatible with HPE 3PAR’s StoreServ 8000 Storage systems, providing a high capacity 7.68 TBs of storage using a SAS drive interface, all in a compact 2.5 inch form factor.
