Hi
 
I'm interested in your experiences, good or bad, with either the WD Red drives, Seagate SV35 and Seagate NAS HDD
 
The WD is rated for home / SOHO NAS use and 24/7. It is a 5400rpm unit.
 
The Seagate is a 24/7 "Surveillance Video" drive, running 7200rpm.
 
The Seagate NAS HDD is a 24/7, running 5900 RPM
 
Which one do you prefer for VMware lab ? (? 7200vs5400vs5900 ?)
 
* home storage (MS AD)
* ISCSI - FreeNAS
* other vm's

 

 

 

Seagate SV35.6 [ST3000VX000]

 

http://www.seagate.c...sku=ST3000VX000

 

WD Red [5400 RPM]

 

http://www.wdc.com/e...cts.aspx?id=810

 

Seagate HDD NAS [ST3000VN000] 5900 RPM

 

http://www.seagate.c...sku=ST3000VN000

 

Or Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 ST3000DM001 

 

 

Then i have several question's

 

1. What about electronic ?

2. Firmware ?

3. Failure ?

 

Cheers and im waiting for your help because im confused and i dont know what i should to do with HDD....

The NAS drives are designed for just that, to be used in a NAS. What platform are you wanting to use these in and how many users will be hitting them at once?

Hello

 

This is all in one home server

 

 

1. Home Active Directory w users (pictures, movies, documents)

2. Free NAS for iscsi - VMware LAB (EVAL vcenter, clustering etc...)

3. Cisco IOS lab - dynampi based on debian VM

4. Home router based on Vyatta

5. p2p server - torrents

If it's just you the media stuff will be fine. On the others it really depends on how much performance you need. What are the expectations there?

Yeah. It just feels like to me you won't be happy with the NAS drives under heavy load. What is the storage budget?

I'd go with whatever you can get in a 7k drive.

I don't see paying up for the duty-specific drive over something like this -

As with any hard drives you're going to want to run full scans when you get them. Most of the complaints of failure are probably shipping related.

This HDD has only  2-year limited warranty

 

This one has 3-year limited warranty

Right. The only thing I don't know since we haven't seen that drive in our lab is whether or not it's been tuned in firmware for sequential performance vs random. Anyway, it will probably be fine, just something to think about.

I mean because it's designed for video recording, not general in-host use.

It will probably be fine but it's not designed for that use, which is what I've been saying about duty-specific drives. I wouldn't buy it for your use but they'll probably be fine.
