2.5-Inch HDDs Improve Data Center Storage Efficiency
Make the transition from legacy 3.5-inch form factor drives with limited capacities and slower performance to the higher density, faster and best-in-class Enterprise Performance 10K HDD.
With up to 2× the capacity and a smaller footprint, data centers can store and access data faster than ever, enabling them to keep pace with data growth while optimizing scarce IT real estate. Lower power consumption reduces energy and cooling costs. 10K.7 HDD drives:
- Deliver up to 30% faster sequential performance and up to 13% higher random performance than competitive drive offerings
- Store up to 100% more data in half the rack space than even the highest-capacity 3.5-inch, 15K HDDs
Enhanced Storage Reliability with Improved Storage Efficiency
Seagate Enterprise Performance 10K HDD advanced media management technology improves drive reliability and data integrity. This seventh-generation hard drive with features like a humidity sensor and SuperParity, lets you rest easier knowing your storage devices will perform as expected - even in harsh environments. It is the first mission-critical HDD to offer the Seagate RAID Rebuild™ technology option, making RAID recovery faster and safer.
Data Security and Protection with FIPS SED Options
The Enterprise Performance 10K HDDs support Protection Information (PI)1 technology, which can help to preserve the integrity of data in flight. Additionally, these drives offer built-in security at no additional charge and FIPS Self-Encrypting Drive (SED)2 options to help secure data-at-rest throughout the life of the device.
Seagate Instant Secure Erase technology also eliminates the need to overwrite or physically destroy drives for security purposes—making drive retirement safe, fast and easy. This enables organizations to securely return, repurpose or sell the drive, thereby reducing drive retirement costs.
1Protection Information (PI) feature requires PI-compliant host or controller support.
2FIPS 140-2 Level 2. May require TCG-compliant host or controller support. TM: A Certification Mark of NIST, which does not imply product endorsement by NIST, the U.S., or Canadian governments.
Enterprise Drives Perfect For:
- Building dense, high performing mission-critical enterprise servers and external storage arrays
- Equipting power- and space-constrained data centers
- Compling with security-driven IT requirements
- Enabling green IT initiatives
- Migrating from legacy 3.5-inch drives to next-generation 2.5-inch HDD technology
