Several consumers only confirm the actual data to acquire granular information before they purchase their drives. However, this information is not always correct, and it makes it more difficult to get a reliable drive. In a recent report, one of the biggest data storage service provider recently revealed that more than 25,000 consumer-class hard drives that it uses in its data center had failed. Some of the hard drives that the company did away with include Hitachi, Seagate, and Western Digital because they have been found to be very unreliable. It has been reported that 3.1% of drives from Hitachi failed, 5.2% drives from Western Digital died, and over 26% of Seagate drives failed.
With the recent transition from Hard Disk Drives to Solid State Drives, invest in HPE ProLiant drives to experience great performance and for competitive pricing.
Benefits of HPE Drives
HPE drives are more suitable for use in environments with high random data that is under different write-workload applications. These drives provide better random write and read I/O operations per every second compared to other drives. Although sequential reading and writing operations have improved in HDDs, SSDs have better performance in random data applications. Their low power consumption, high-performance, and low-latency provide more system benefits for applications that over-provision HDD capacity.
High quality HP Enterprise parts are more reliable and save on power compared to traditional rotating drives. Therefore, if you have big data it is the high time you consider upgrading to SSDs.
Compatible With Servers
HPE SSDs have been tested for a long time and found to be compatible with HPE Synergy, HPE proLiant, and HPE BladeSystem solutions. This has led to HPE SSDs being placed among the best compared to other products found on the open market. Keep in mind that SSDs on the market even those that have similar vendor model numbers don’t always have the same level of performance, quality and endurance compared to HPE Quality Options. For instance, the controller in the non-qualified drives can be different from HPE Qualified Options.
Lower Power Consumption
Increasing data storage poses high performance and power challenges. However, SSDs have been found to have higher performance-to-power rating compared to traditional HDDs. The absence of the motor reduces power consumption in SSDs and this in turn causes less energy consumption. The energy used in SSDs is less than 2 watts when idle and less than nine watts when used to the maximum.
One of the important aspects you should consider in any storage medium is its reliability. Reliability is especially essential for devices that are used in servers. HPE SSDs have been exposed to rigorous HPE ProLiant tests that lasted up to 24 million hours. There is no other storage device on the market today that can keep up with HPE standards.
