Seagate Unveils Two HDDs for Cloud Infrastructures and Large Scale Data Centers
Seagate has introduced two new enterprise-class HDD optimized for emerging cloud infrastructures and large scale data centers - the Seagate Terascale HDD and the Seagate Enterprise Performance 10K HDD v7.
Ideal for system builders, the Terascale HDD and Enterprise Performance 10K HDD v7 provide high-capacity storage in low-power configurations making them perfect for efficiently and affordably storing the ever-growing amount of unstructured data typically stored in the cloud.
Seagate Terascale HDD
Delivering the highest capacity HDD (4TB) available in a 3.5-inch enterprise-class SATA HDD, the Terascale HDD provides data centers with the maximum storage scalability they need to meet demands in low workload, 24x7 replicated environments. An affordable enterprise platform for storing exabytes of unstructured data in the cloud, the drive is Seagate’s lowest $/GB enterprise HDD for use in scalable multi-drive systems.
The Terascale HDD lowers costs by operating at one of the lowest enterprise HDD power consumption available—as low as 4.8W—reducing ongoing energy and cooling costs for multi-drive large scale operations. As a result, the drive lowers total cost of ownership while providing unparalleled enterprise-class reliability.
Equipped with Seagate’s own Instant Secure Erase (ISE) technology, the Terascale HDD saves money and time by reducing drive erasure times from hours to milliseconds providing quick, safe and easy drive disposal or repurposing. It also features a low-cost 6Gbps SATA interface for easy integration with lower cost SATA infrastructures.
Seagate Enterprise Performance 10K HDD v7
Rounding out its enterprise portfolio, Seagate also today announced the next-gen version of its Enterprise Performance 10K HDD— the Seagate Enterprise Performance 10K HDD v7. A 2.5-inch 10K-RPM enterprise hard disk drive, the new Enterprise Performance 10K HDD v7 delivers high-capacity in a mission critical drive enabling storage professionals to build optimum data storage solutions with consistently high performance and reliability in a low power envelope.
The Enterprise Performance 10K HDD v7 is equipped with 1.2TB of data storage providing data centers with both the performance needed for the most write-intensive applications and the scalability to meet storage growth and business objectives. Ideal for mission critical server and storage solutions, the drive is engineered for high performance computing and high random and sequential workloads including database transaction processing and high workload servers that process mission critical data in power and space constrained data centers.
Extremely energy-efficient, the Enterprise Performance 10K HDD v7 delivers one of the highest GB/Watt power optimization and cooling costs in a 2.5-inch enterprise 10K HDD available. The drive also incorporates Seagate’s PowerChoice technology which enables IT organizations to tailor systems for enhanced power consumption during idle periods. It is equipped with a 6Gb/s SAS interface for dependable ultra-fast storage.
