60-Bay Hybrid Storage Platform
The Next Generation Hybrid Platform for Software-Defined Storage
Designed for High Density and Flexibility
The Ultrastar Data60 is a key element of next generation disaggregated storage and software-defined storage (SDS) systems, delivering high density and the flexibility to balance performance with cost. The Ultrastar Data60 provides up to 840TB¹ of raw storage in a compact and efficient form factor. Western Digital HelioSeal® drives ensure cool running, quiet operation and high reliability. A high-performance data tier can be set up for demanding applications by using SSDs in up to 24 of the drive slots, enabling the ability to serve both fast data and big data from a single platform.
Building on 50+ Years of Storage Design Experience
Conventional dense disk shelves frequently suffer from performance degradation due to induced vibration from adjacent drives. Traditional platforms also have cooling challenges as the cooling air passes over successive rows of drives, losing effectiveness as it gets heated up along the airflow path. Developing storage devices and platforms side-by-side, we address these challenges through Silicon to Systems Design, a set of technologies developed based on a holistic view of devices, platform, and their interactions. The first two of these innovative technologies are IsoVibe™ and ArcticFlow™. IsoVibe reduces vibration-induced performance degradation, while ArcticFlow overcomes the cooling issues by introducing cool air into the middle of the platform. Both these technologies contribute to long-term reliability, enabling our five year limited warranty on the entire platform.
Designed for the Enterprise and the Cloud
This new platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprise customers, storage OEMs, cloud service providers and resellers/integrators that require dense, shared HDD or hybrid storage. The Ultrastar Data60 provides the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations to balance capacity, performance and cost.
1One MB is equal to one million bytes, one GB is equal to one billion bytes and one TB equals 1,000GB (one trillion bytes) when referring to storage capacity. Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting and partitioning of the drives, the operating system and other factors.
