Techopedia Explains Spin-UpOne common reference to spin-up is the use of the term spin-up time to analyze the time that it takes for the disk to go from a dormant state to a readable or writable state. Spin-up time is influenced by many factors, including the required revolutions per minute, which range from around 3,000 to 4,000 for a personal device to up to 15,000 revolutions per minute or more for sophisticated servers.
Because spin-up requires a major portion of total power output for a computer or device, engineers have tried to limit the required power and the burden of spin-up on a specific device model. This includes efforts to stagger spin-up, or another process called power up in standby, where a RAID controller might control this process for a given drive or set of drives. Specific manufacturers have also developed proprietary technologies for optimizing spin-up and delivering low-energy solutions for the tech market.
