T130 Hard drive update

We have a T130 Poweredge server that was installed in 2018, it has 2 x 1TB 7200 drives  - I'm running a simple linux server which as it's own software raid which works for us fine. One of the HDD's has failed and I want to reinstall with 2 new disks, it has the Perc H330 raid controller, but I'm using software raid. Can I user any enterprise grade drive to replace these, WD Ultrastar or Seagate EXOS etc - still just need 2 x 1TB as not a large system. Appreciate any advice with this

Hi,

to upgrade the hard drives on your Dell PowerEdge T130 server, you can use enterprise-grade drives such as WD Ultrastar or Seagate EXOS. Since you are currently using software RAID, you can replace the existing drives with new ones of the same capacity (2 x 1TB) without any compatibility issues with the Perc H330 RAID controller.

I recently upgraded my T130 hard drive and the performance boost is incredible! I can now store more data and access files faster than before. The installation process was straightforward, making it a great option for anyone looking to enhance their system. Additionally, I paired it with one of the new dual-band WiFi routers, which has significantly improved my internet speed and connectivity throughout my home. Highly recommend both!
