DL360 G5 SP Aand DP mean next to SAS hard drives

Hello there,

I am looking at quick spec and have noticed.

That there are SP and DP next to the drives.
431935-B21 SP
418371-B21 DP

What does this mean is it related to the server
you are buying.

Re: DL360 G5 SP Aand DP mean next to SAS hard drives

hi


those are SAS HDD

SP -> Single Port
DP -> Dual Port

what is that?
SAS dual porting capability and the ability to support I/O requests from more than one controller at a time (multi-initiator) also enables the design of dynamic load
balancing systems and redundant path configurations to further increase performance and reliability.


also check this

Are dual port drives compatible with single port servers and enclosures?
Yes, dual port SAS drives are compatible with servers and storage enclosure which only support one port on the hard drive. The drive will function as a single port device in this configuration.


I hope this can help you

and I think maybe the difference is the price
Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!
