DL 380 G5 buy new disk

Good morning to all,
I need to buy disks for this server" DL380 G5 458563-421"

the cost per unit is about 300 euro, because the server is outdated.


the code of the discs is this:

1) HP 300GB 6G SAS 10K SFF DP ENT HDD 507127-B21   

2) HP 300GB 3G SAS 10K SFF DP ENT HDD 492620-B21


do you think there is a low cost alternative?
I can buy normal discs?

please Advise me the right way.

The only officially supported drives will be HP drives like the ones you mentioned.
You can find used or remanufactured drives online for less cost.

That being said, the drives in that model are standard SAS or SATA drives in an HP specific drive carrier. If you can find spare carriers, any standard SAS or SATA drive will technically work.
But again that would be an unsupported option only recommended for a home lab environment.
