iQuote Advisory: SAS Drive Transition

September 10, 2010

HP is refreshing the ProLiant SAS Hard Disk Drives.
SAS Drives are changing from 3Gb/s to 6Gb/s and iQuote is now showing the new 6Gb/s Hard Disk Drives as Options. For HP ProLiants that ship with a SAS Drive pre-installed we will now be showing that the drive is 6Gb/s and linking to the 6Gb/s option. However, due to channel inventory the actual drive that you get may still be a 3Gb/s drive. 3Gb/s and 6Gb/s drives are technically compatible but when mixed will perform at 3Gb/s.

If an end user customer must have 6Gb/s drives throughout (guaranteed) either choose a model with no Hard Disk Drive pre-installed (so you can select the 6Gb/s Drives as options) or check with your Distributor.
