Seagate announced three new enterprise-class hard disk drives aimed at optimizing traditional data centers as well as emerging cloud infrastructures.
Seagate's 3.5-inch Enterprise Value HDD, also known as the Constellation CS, provides cloud data centers with the scalable affordability they need to meet demands in low workload and 24 by 7 replicated environments. In addition the 7200rpm Enterprise also supports up to a maximum rack density of 114TB per square foot, and consumes as much as 29% less power when compared to other high-capacity enterprise drives. Offering up to 3TB of storage, it incorporates the Seagate Instant Secure Erase, designed to reduce data erasure times with a proven 6Gbps SATA interface for easy integration in lower workload solutions.
Also known as the Constellation ES.3 with capacities of up to 4TB, the sixth-gen Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 hard drive comes equipped with a maximum rack density of 152TB per square foot and fourth-gen SAS interface for high data integrity, 1.4M hour MTBF, and enhanced vibration tolerance for consistent 24 by 7 enterprise performance. On top of integrating the Seagate PowerChoice for increased power savings during idle periods, the drive also includes Seagate's Self-Encrypting Drive technology, an SED FIPS security option, and Seagate Instant Secure Erase for easy drive disposal.
The Seagate Enterprise Performance 10K HDD, also known as the Savvio 10K.6, is a 2.5-inch 10K-rpm enterprise hard disk drive which is a perfect replacement for power-hungry, lower capacity, 3.5-inch 15K-rpm HDDs, or slower performing 2.5-inch 10K-rpm HDDs. It delivers up to 21% faster performance than previous generations, and is able to match sustained data transfer rates found in 15K-rpm, 3.5-inch drives. This drive offers up to 900GB of storage with built-in security. Similar to the Seagate Enterprise Capacity, the Enterprise Performance 10K HDD also comes loaded with the Seagate Instant Secure Erase feature.
