We've ordered set of 15k 300G IBM HDDs to build RAID. On a question about which HDD model we will have, hw vendor provided following data: P/N 43X0802 300Gb 15K HS SAS HDD
This label tell me nothing about advanced technical characteristics of a drive. I've tried to search IBM website looking for technical specification using P/N but without luck. That's just weird, or possibly I'm searching wrong place. Probably under this label there is some concrete model of Seagate drive, most of our old IBM 15K SAS drives are Seagate Cheetah models, but they also vary in model numbers and performance as well.
Maybe someone had such experience of decrypting IBM HDD labels. Thanks
