The Seagate ST12000NM002G is a hard disk drive (HDD) produced by Seagate. The model number “ST12000NM002G” is used to identify this specific drive.
The drive has a storage capacity of 12TB, which means it can store 12 terabytes of data. This is a large amount of storage, and it is suitable for enterprise-level storage needs, such as storing large amounts of data on a server or workstation.
The drive has a rotation speed of 7,200 RPM, which means the disks inside the drive spin at 7,200 revolutions per minute. This rotation speed is common in enterprise-level hard drives and is slower than 15K RPM hard drives but still provides a good balance between performance and capacity.
The drive uses the SAS 12GB/s interface, which is a high-speed data transfer standard that is commonly used in enterprise-level storage systems. This interface provides a fast data transfer rate of up to 12 gigabytes per second, allowing for faster data transfer between the drive and the host computer.
The drive is optimized for enterprise-level environments and it provides high-reliability and high-performance. With its large storage capacity, it’s ideal for heavy workloads and data-intensive applications.
