What does it mean that this is DS and why is it important?

DS refers to Digitally Signed Firmware. The digitally signed storage drives like this 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 this is RI?

RI translates to Read Intensive. The read-intensive storage drives like this ({Specs}) are optimized for a much faster read performance compared to the write performance. In simple words, read-intensive drives can read data faster than they can write it. This makes them suitable for use cases that involve infrequent writing of data. The main benefit of read-intensive drives is they’re generally more affordable than drives offering a balance between read & write speed for cost-effectiveness.

What does it mean that this is 2.5" SFF?

SFF stands for the small form factor. The 2.5” storage drives (including this) pack a relatively compact size of 2.5 inches. To be exact, their dimensions consist of a 2.7 inches width, a 0.37-inch height, and a 3.96 inches length. The small form factor storage drives are commonly used in laptops and game consoles that have a smaller size than computers. But they’re also a fit for desktop computers and servers.

What does it mean that this 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 this, 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 this is a SC (Smart Carrier) drive?

SC refers to Smart Carrier. An SC storage drive, like this, means that the drive comes with Smart Carrier. The Smart Drive Carrier feature is only available in newer hard drives (Gen8/Gen9) and warns against data loss when detaching a drive. Moreover, the HP hard drives containing this feature are usually termed HP Smart drives. That said, some regular drives are also turned into Smart drives by installing them into a smart drive carrier (smart carrier converter).

"We're a Canadian company who was badly in need of a drive for our server. Wasn't sure how the cross border purchase would go but Scott and his team had us taken care of at a price that couldn't be beaten and with lightning speed and efficiency. We had our drive in just a few days. I would highly recommend this company! Wish there were more out there like them!"
