7 common question about the HP 857650-B21

What does it mean that the HP 857650-B21 is DS and why is it important?

DS refers to Digitally Signed Firmware. The digitally signed storage drives like HP 857650-B21 give you peace of mind knowing they cannot be modified or corrupted by anyone but the official manufacturer. Digitally signed firmware is an effective way to verify your hard drive’s originality before installing it on a server. It’s sometimes also important for your storage drive’s compatibility with other hardware parts and to acquire warranty support.

What does it mean that the HP 857650-B21 is MDL drive?

MDL translates to Midline. It’s a high-capacity storage drive that’s considered a great choice for reliable external storage requirements, it provides higher I/O performance utilizing low power. The MDL storage drives like HP 857650-B21 generally pack high data transmission capacity for robust server performance. HP’s Midline drives are ideal for storing backups and multi-drive configurations as well as demanding workloads like video editing and high-speed data transfers.

What does it mean that the HP 857650-B21 is 3.5" LFF?

LFF refers to a large form factor. The LFF drives like HP 857650-B21 pack a 3.5-inch size which rounds off to an approximate 4-inch width, 5.8-inch length, and 0.8-inch thickness. Note that 3.5 inches are the size of a hard drive’s data platter, not its overall physical size. The 3.5-inch hard drives are commonly used in desktop computers and servers. Their larger form factor makes them unsuitable for hard drive bays of small form factor (2.5-inches).

What does it mean that the HP 857650-B21 drive is SATA 6G?

SATA stands for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment, a data transfer protocol for computers. SATA is widely used for connecting different storage drives to a computer. However, this protocol has different generations with different speeds. A SATA 6G interface refers to the SATA 3 interface offering a 6.0Gb/s bandwidth (same as 600MBs). Generally, only solid-state drives (SSDs), like HP’s 857650-B21, can deliver such a fast data transfer rate. That said, SSD drives are much quicker than traditional hard disk drives (HDDs).

What does it mean that the HP 857650-B21 is a Helium drive?

Helium storage drives are filled with Helium gas to minimize air turbulence (certain wind patterns) when their platters spin. These Helium drives, like HP's 857650-B21, operate at cooler temperatures and keep out humidity, so the drive lasts long. Due to all these features, the Helium-filled drives benefit users with a significantly increased data storage size, better reliability, and lower energy consumption. However, Helium must remain sealed inside the hard drive to be fully functional, or humidity may damage the drive.

What does it mean that the HP 857650-B21 is a 512e drive?

512e in a hard drive refers to 512 bytes emulated storage of a physical sector. Emulated storage means what size is shown to an operating system or software if needed but is not a reality. The reality of 512e storage drives is that each sector packs 4096-byte storage, following an advanced standard. However, the purpose of the 512 bytes emulated storage is to ensure the drive works well with operating systems that only support traditional hard drives. The format of these 512e drives, like HP's 857650-B21, is called Advanced Format (AF).

What does it mean that the HP 857650-B21 is a LPc mean?

LPc stands for Low Profile Carrier. It’s a type of hard drive generation usually found in solid-state drives (SSDs) like HP's' 857650-B21. The LPc drives are compatible with LPc drive bays that are mostly paired up with HP Proliant SATA Servers. The term “low profile carrier” refers to the compact design of the LPc storage drives, making them fit the smaller LPc drive carriers. That said, the LPc drives and bays have varying sizes that mostly fall around 2.5 inches or 3.5 inches.
