WD VelociRaptor running on IBM x3500 m4 or DELL T420

Hi! I’m new here so bare with me… We are buying new server and our favorits are IBM x3500 M4 and DELL T420, but we would also like to be able to install WD VelociRaptor in our servers(They are alot cheper than any SAS disk around and have better performance than SATA disks). IS that possible?

Thanks for all the answers.

PS: We also install 2 WD VelociRaptor 2month ago in our Intel server(it’s ESXi server, with a lot of virtual machines), and the disks are working great so far :smiley:


The WD VelociRaptor should be compatible with both Server systems. However, cooling requirements should be considered as the 2.5" revision and the 3.5" IcePack Mounting Frame will need proper ventilation.
