Hard disk drive (HDD) is a non-volatile storage medium. It is also called as hard drive or hard disk. The hard drive consists of platters that have magnetic surfaces. Digitally encoded data is stored on these platters. Hard disk is the computer system's workhouse. Hard drive stores all the data and Operating systems of the computer systems. Hard disc drive is also used as a medium for recording backup data.
Numerous interface standards are used to transfer information between the computer system and hard disk drive. Most common interface standards are the SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) and IDE (Integrated Drive Electronics).
SCSI is also pronounced as skuzzy.
The HP (Hewlett-Packard) hard drives offer unmatchable durability and superior performance. In order to ensure the performance, robustness and reliability of the HP hard disc drives, they have to pass through different phases of rigorous testing systems of HP. The HP hard drives are shipped after passing these tests.
Latest technologies are incorporated in the HP hard drives to deliver outstanding results under stress and heavy duty cycles. The powerful features of HP hard drive make it highly compatible.
