Depends on your budget and what you are using the server for. Also which exact server you have.  It takes 3 GB/S SATA drives (but I suppose if your drive is faster it will still work - just wasted some money) Maximum size varies depending on whether hot plug or not and sff vs lff.  Check out http://www8.hp.com/h...cname=c04128120  Look under Internal Storage.  Western Digital Red, RED PRO or RE would be a good choice if you can afford them.

I can recommend Western Digital or Seagate based on my experience.

If this is any sort of production server, HP drives all the way.  I have plenty of clients running HP servers, I always insist they run genuine HP drives.  The biggest reason for this is warranty and definite compatibility.

 

One client decided they didn't want to spend $$$ on HP genuine drives, we installed WD Velociraptors instead.  Not even one year yet and we've already had one failure.  Sure drives die from time to time, but it does stand out to me.

Hi,

First you select which Hp Proliant server you want like ML30, ML60, ML150, Dl160. For HDD recommended is 3x HP 300GB 12G SAS 10K rpm SFF is the best HDD Recommended for Hp proliant server.
