LENOVO 00LA820 Frequently Asked Questions

What does it mean if a hard drive runs at 7200 RPM?

7200 RPM, in the context of server hard drives, refers to the speed at which the drive's platters rotate. This specification signifies the number of revolutions per minute. When this feature was initially introduced is in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was a significant advancement in technology at the time, as previous hard drives had lower rotational speeds, typically around 5400 RPM or lower.


The introduction of 7200 RPM drives brought about several important improvements. Firstly, the faster rotational speed allowed for quicker access to data and faster transfer speeds. This was particularly valuable in server environments where efficient data processing and high-speed data transfer were essential.


Secondly, the enhanced performance of 7200 RPM drives resulted in reduced latency and improved overall system performance. Servers handling large volumes of data and running resource-intensive applications greatly benefited from the faster read and write speeds.


Furthermore, the higher RPM facilitated smoother multitasking capabilities, enabling servers to handle multiple simultaneous operations more effectively. This was particularly advantageous for servers serving multiple users or running complex applications concurrently.


Additionally, the evolution of 7200 RPM drives also saw an increase in storage capacity over time. This combination of higher rotational speed and larger storage capacities provided server administrators with more space to store critical data.


While technology has continued to advance, with the emergence of solid-state drives (SSDs) and even faster rotational speeds, the introduction of 7200 RPM drives marked a significant milestone in the development of hard drive technology. It delivered improved performance, faster data access, and increased storage capacity, catering to the demands of server environments.

What does it mean if a drive is hot-swappable?

Hot Swap, also known as hot swapping or hot plugging, refers to the ability to replace or add components in a computer system without shutting down or interrupting the operation of the system. In the context of server hard drives, hot swapping allows you to remove or insert hard drives while the server is running and operational, without causing any downtime or disruption to the services the server provides.


This feature was introduced to improve system availability, reliability, and ease of maintenance. Before hot swapping became common, adding or replacing components in a running system required shutting down the system, which could result in service interruptions and downtime. With hot swap capabilities, server administrators can perform maintenance tasks such as replacing a failed hard drive or adding additional storage capacity without affecting the overall system operation. This is particularly important in scenarios where uptime and continuous service availability are critical, such as in data centers, enterprise environments, and high-performance computing systems.


The concept of hot swapping dates back to the early days of computing, but it became more widely implemented in the late 1990s and early 2000s as server hardware and storage technologies evolved. The specific release dates of hot swap-capable hardware may vary depending on manufacturers and models, but it became a standard feature in many enterprise-grade servers and storage systems during this time period.


In addition to hard drives, hot swapping has been applied to various components, including power supplies, cooling fans, and network interface cards, among others. The ability to replace and upgrade components without downtime has contributed significantly to improved system uptime, reduced maintenance costs, and enhanced overall system reliability.

What does it mean if a hard drive has an interface of SATA?

The term "SATA" represents Serial Advanced Technology Attachment. It denotes a computer interface utilized for connecting storage devices, including hard drives, solid-state drives (SSDs), and optical drives, to a computer's motherboard. SATA replaced the older Parallel ATA (PATA) interface, also known as IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics).


SATA made its debut in 2003 as a successor to PATA, which had been in use since the 1980s. The initial iteration, SATA 1.0 or SATA 1.5 Gbps, offered a data transfer rate of 1.5 gigabits per second (Gbps). Subsequently, newer versions of SATA were introduced, such as SATA 2.0 (3 Gbps), SATA 3.0 (6 Gbps), and SATA 3.2 (16 Gbps). It is important to note that the actual achieved data transfer rates are generally lower than the specified theoretical maximum due to factors like drive performance and host system capabilities.


The transition from PATA to SATA brought forth significant technological advancements:


  1. Enhanced data transfer rates: SATA provided faster data transfer rates compared to PATA. The increased bandwidth facilitated quicker and more efficient communication between storage devices and motherboards, resulting in improved overall system performance.

  2. Sleeker and more flexible cables: SATA cables are thinner and more flexible compared to the bulky ribbon cables used by PATA. This change simplified cable management within computer cases and improved airflow for better cooling.

  3. Support for hot-swapping: SATA introduced support for hot-swapping, enabling drives to be connected or disconnected while the system is powered on and operational. This feature proved valuable in enterprise settings, as it facilitated easier drive replacement and system maintenance without requiring a complete system shutdown.

  4. Native command queuing (NCQ): SATA also introduced NCQ, a feature that enhances drive performance by allowing the drive to optimize the execution order of read and write commands. NCQ improves overall responsiveness and reduces latency, particularly in multitasking scenarios.


These advancements made SATA a significant improvement over its predecessor, PATA, and played a crucial role in delivering faster and more reliable storage solutions in computers.

What does it mean if a drive has a Data Tranfer Rate of 6G?

A 6G Data Transfer Rate in the context of server hard drives refers to a data transfer rate of 6 gigabits per second (Gbps) between the hard drive and the rest of the computer system. This rate indicates how quickly data can be read from or written to the hard drive. It's essentially a measure of the drive's ability to exchange data with the rest of the computer's components, such as the motherboard or RAID controllers.


The 6G Data Transfer Rate, often referred to as SATA 6Gbps or SATA III, was introduced as part of the Serial ATA (SATA) interface standard. SATA is a technology used for connecting internal storage devices, like hard drives and solid-state drives (SSDs), to a computer's motherboard. SATA III, with its 6Gbps data transfer rate, was officially released in May 2009.


This advancement was important for a few reasons:


  1. Increased Bandwidth: The earlier SATA II standard had a maximum data transfer rate of 3Gbps. SATA III doubled this bandwidth to 6Gbps, allowing for faster data transfer between storage devices and the rest of the system. This increase in bandwidth was particularly beneficial as hard drives and SSDs continued to get faster, enabling them to more effectively utilize the available speed.

  2. SSD Performance: Solid-state drives (SSDs), which were gaining popularity around the time of SATA III's release, are inherently faster than traditional hard drives due to their lack of moving parts. SATA III's higher data transfer rate allowed SSDs to better showcase their speed potential, as earlier SATA standards could sometimes bottleneck the performance of these high-speed storage devices.

  3. Support for High-Performance Applications: With the growth of data-intensive applications, such as video editing, gaming, and server workloads, having a faster data transfer rate became crucial. SATA III helped ensure that data could flow between storage devices and other components of the computer without becoming a performance bottleneck.

  4. Future-Proofing: As technology continued to advance, the demand for faster storage interfaces grew. By introducing SATA III with its 6Gbps data transfer rate, the industry was preparing for upcoming storage innovations and ensuring that storage wouldn't be a limiting factor in overall system performance.


It's worth noting that while SATA III was a significant advancement in its time, subsequent interface standards like PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) have surpassed it in terms of both bandwidth and performance. PCIe-based NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) SSDs, for example, offer even faster data transfer rates and lower latency compared to SATA III SSDs.
