Sas Hot

June 1st, 2014

Are SAS hot-swap disk drives interoperable , ie IBM SAS disk in Dell server?

Looking to add 300GB to my dell server, but they are being a huge pain and want me to jump through hoops to find our "point of contact"... in a company of 50,000 people. They obviously don't want to sell too desperately.

Anyway I found an IBM SAS disk that is {exactly} the same and $200 cheaper. But the question is, will it fit? Specifically, a 300GB SAS 15K hot-swap 3.5" disk. Are the drive trays standardized/interoperable between the major manufacturers, or must I go through Dell?

I usually like doing business with them, but they are being a real pain in the ass today.
Specifically, I need to know if the IBM drive tray will fit the Dell slot... not a question about the disk drive itself, per se. Disk stats are exactly the same as our others.
We require new equipment that is covered by warranty (plus we are a big company), so ebay isn't an option

where do you think dell buy them from?

why not just have a look at the actual Make of the drives you
have at the moment.

They certainly wont say DELL.although the label might

most of them will be seagate i expect.
a search of ebay for "dell 300gb sas drive" reveals codes like
ST3300656SS
which is a seagate 300 gig drive.
try looking for yourself. in fact there are bucket loads of these 300 gig drives on ebay
so why pay dell prices.

Note: as with all dell and Hp stuff there are often minor faults found with hard drive
firmware, and often dell and hp issue recommended firmware upgrades. whenever
purchasing replacement drives, check and upgrade firmware on drives to ensure you
are avoiding any future issues.

xtra note:
whenever Mixing Drives you should avoid mixing Makes and speeds etc as the
Array might suffer some minor effects. so its best to obtain Exact model nos, so
its far better to find the exact model nos you already have to keep array timings
in alignment. Thats why you should go see what you have at the moment.
Seagate drive nos always start with ST3 where 3 is 3.5inch series.
Like is say EBAY is great source of info. just looking at the pictures of the labels
tells you that lots of makes are used by Dell and HP for the same Dell or HP replacement
part no.
