Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.

Hard disk drives are today\'s fastest permanent storage media and have a large capacity. For this two reasons they are the most used storage medium in computers and servers. When buying a new hard disk, there are three important things to consider:\
- The connection of the disk to the computer or other device you will be using it with has a big influence on the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk. Make sure the connection of the disk you buy is compatible with your computer!\
- The rotational speed is also important for the speed with which data can be read from/written to the disk and determines the time it takes to find a file on the disk.\
- Last but not least, the storage capacity of the disk, i.e. the amount of data that can be stored on the disk.

Data-sheet quality: created/standardized by Icecat
The quality of the product data-sheet can be on several levels:
only logistic data imported: we have only basic data imported from a supplier, a data-sheet is not yet created by an editor.
created by IBM: a data-sheet is imported from an official source from a manufacturer. But the data-sheet is not yet standardized by an Icecat editor.
created/standardized by Icecat: the data-sheet is created or standardized by an Icecat editor.

The official marketing text of IBM 36GB U320 as supplied by the manufacturer
Increase your throughput in select xSeries servers with the next generation of high-speed Ultra320 SCSI hard disk drives (HDDs). Ultra320 SCSI drives provide top-of-the-line performance for business-critical, disk-intensive applications such as e-business, transaction processing, data maining and data warehousing. Ultra320 SCSI technology combines interface data transfer rates of up to 320MBps, reduced overhead and enhanced flow control to help deliver dramatic performance gains. This HDD option provides a high-performance, wide bandwidth data path to provide high levels of performance. And at 15,000rpm spindle speeds, these are IBM's highest-performing HDDs. Improved diagnostics and data protection, as well as hot-swap capabilities with direct docking, help reduce downtime. For even greater reliability, you can create high-perfomance RAID arrays. Simply connect your drives to either an onboard Ultra320 SCSI controller with integrated mirroring capabilities or an IBM ServeRAID-6M Controller, available on select xSeries servers.

Features & Benefits:
• 3.5-inch, 1-inch high, slim-line form factor allows maximum installations in supported xSeries servers
• This HDD docks directly into the hot-swap backplane of supported Ultra320-compatible servers.
• Predictive Failure Analysis (PFA) can alert you of a problem before it occurs
• Rigorously tested through the IBM ServerProven program, giving you confidence that your xSeries storage subsystem is compatible and will function reliably
• Ultra320 SCSI interface provides wide bandwidth for multi-drive, concurrent, streaming data transfers
• 15,000rpm HDDs are IBM's top performing drives.
