Technology Innovation Improves Storage Efficiency
Ultrastar 7K6000 delivers greater storage efficiency through high performance, achieving up to 3X higher random write performance, thanks to HGST media cache architecture, a diskbased caching technology, which provides a large non-volatile cache on the disk. Media cache also allows for improved reliability and data integrity during unexpected power loss. Other performance-enhancing features include higher areal density for 25% faster sequential performance vs. 7K4000, and a 128MB cache buffer. Designed to handle workloads up to 550TB per year, HUS726040ALE610 offers a 6Gb/s SATA interface for easy integration into high performance data centers. As drive capacities increase, so does the time required to recover a failed drive in a RAID configuration. Dramatically reduce RAID rebuild times and maintain system performance during the rebuild process with the new Rebuild Assist.
Data Security with Trusted Quality, Reliability
Compliance and privacy requirements drive the need for increased data security. Ultrastar 7K6000 helps protect data from unauthorized use by offering security and encryption options. This Instant Secure Erase (ISE) model expedite drive redeployment and retirement. The Ultrastar 7K6000 is a seventh generation, 5-platter design, field proven by top server and storage OEMs, and Internet giants, and extends HGST’s long-standing tradition of reliability leadership with a 2M-hour MTBF rating.
