A perfect fit for cloud bulk data storage, the Seagate Enterprise Value HDD provides up to 3TB in an affordable, low-power configuration. Designed for vast amounts of unstructured data typically hosted in replicated data environments, it’s the first Enterprise HDD on the market to provide just what’s needed to make the lives of storage managers in cloud data centers most efficient. We’ve even included the Instant Secure Erase option at no extra charge for secure, easy and quick drive disposal – imagine cleaning a drive for secure disposal in less than 1 second.
If you’re looking for a 4TB (or 3, 2 or even 1TB) higher performing (37% better than last generation), lower power (5% lower than last generation), more reliable (more chassis support, Humidity Sensor, Dual Heaters, SuperParity and improved RV Tolerance) capacity-optimized HDD for your tier 2 storage in your data center, look no further than the new Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD, the 6th generation nearline HDD also known as the Constellation ES.3. It’s so reliable, we’ve increased the MTBF from 1.2M hours to 1.4M hours and doubled the load/unload specification from 300K to 600K.
Or if you’re looking to improve your performance, check out the new Seagate Performance 10K HDD, the 6th generation of our mission critical Savvio 10K-RPM product line. It’s the perfect upgrade drive to get off of 3.5-inch Cheetah drives for a couple of great reasons. This new 10K drive matches the sequential performance of a 15K Cheetah drive, provides 50% more capacity (900GB vs. 600GB) in 70% less space (2.5” vs. 3.5” form factor) while reducing your power consumption by up to 71% saving you money every day.
Now’s your chance to get on board with providing data security where the data lives…on the hard drive. These new Enterprise drives now offer the Self-Encrypted Drives (SED) option at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.That means you can rest easy knowing your data is safe and you’ve got the convenience of 1 second erasure when you’re ready to retire the drive or repurpose it.
