Storage Review looks “under the covers” of the Seagate Constellation ES

SRLogoEarlier this week, StorageReview took a good look under the covers of the new Constellation ES hard drive and determined that with its’ “512GB, 1TB, and 2TB configurations offered in SAS and SATA interfaces with plenty of security and power savings options make the Seagate Constellation ES line a solid drive for high-capacity enterprise storage needs.”
In addition to the “solid performance” of the drive, Thomas Sullivan calls out the feature rich choices that make it appealing to businesses of all sizes:
“Seagate puts a strong emphasis on energy savings with the Constellation ES, offering PowerChoice to reduce power during slow or idle periods. In our tests with the drive in an active state we saw an idle power draw of 6.46w which was just under the advertised power draw of 7w.
“For users with security in mind Seagate also offers Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) as an option.”
“Factor in that there’s also a SAS model and the Constellation ES has its bases covered.”
Thomas concludes “With a spec sheet like this, it’s hard to imagine wanting anything else in a high-capacity enterprise-class storage solution.”
