BRAND NEW FACTORY SEALED & RETAIL BOXED
72.8GB, 10,000 rpm, Ultra320 SCSI, 3.5" 1" internal hot-pluggable hard drive for select Compaq Proliant servers, ProLiant Storage Systems, AlphaServers, and StorageWorks enclosures
Maximize the capacity and performance of Compaq computers with Ultra320 SCSI Hard Drives
HP Ultra320 SCSI Universal hard drives provide storage commonality across the enterprise. Ultra320 Universal drives add the feature of hot plug compatibility between any Ultra 320, Ultra3 or Ultra2 capable ProLiant Servers, ProLiant Storage Systems, AlphaServers, and StorageWorks™ enclosures by HP. These hot plug drives are offered in multiple capacities and spindle speeds. Storage commonality across these platforms provides many benefits including reduced cost of ownership, reduced storage complexity, and a minimized hard drive spares inventory.
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 data integrity problems, firmware and O/S incompatibilities and other causes of data corruption or premature failure. All drive firmware is specific to HP's 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.
When used in conjunction with a SMART Array Controller and 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, Insight Manager and/or SMART hard disk drive lets you know in advance so you can have the drive replaced, before it fails, under the HP Pre-Failure Warranty.
