IBM 2.5 SFF HDD Tray / HDD tray

IBM 2.5 SFF HDD Tray

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The IBM 2.5” SFF HDD Tray is a breakthrough product speeding business efficiency through a 2.5” small form-factor storage solution. These hot-plug trays have a key advantage with their 70 percent smaller drive size, which allows integration of more drives into a smaller chassis.
The new design hinges on ergonomic criteria, such as a finger guard protection against accidental trigger release when adjacent to other 2.5” trays. The blue touch-point trigger has a double-hinge feature for releasing and engaging the cam-like handle. The sculpted-handle design not only allows disk drives to be removed while a machine is being serviced, but it visually enhances the character of the xSeries server family of products.
