Product Benefits

High capacity nearline drive

Massive capacities up to 6 TB suit even the most demanding datacenter, enterprise server, or cloud storage needs.

Designed for high-intensity applications

Designed to handle workloads up to 550 TB per year – among the highest workload capability of any 3.5-inch hard drive – delivering both performance and reliability to any datacenter environment.

Multi-axis shock sensor

Automatically detects the subtlest shock events and compensates to protect the data.

Applications

Vibration Protection

Enhanced RAFFtechnology includes sophisticated electronics to monitor the drive and correct both linear and rotational vibration in real time. The result is a significant performance improvement in

high vibration environments over desktop drives.

RAID-specific, time-limited error recovery (TLER)

Reduces drive fallout caused by the extended hard drive error-recovery processes common to desktop drives.

Designed for quality and reliability

With 1.2 million hours MTBF, these drives ensure one of the highest level reliability ratings for high-capacity enterprise storage needs.

NoTouchramp load technology

The recording head never touches the disk media ensuring significantly less wear to the recording head and media as well

as better drive protection in transit.

Thermal extended burn-in test

Each drive is put through extended burn-in testing with thermal cycling to ensure reliable operation.

Dynamic fly height technology

Each read-write head’s fly height is adjusted in real time for optimum reliability.

Online Analytical Processing (OLAP), data warehousing/mining, high-performance computing, high-end NAS/SAN and surveillance systems, and high-availability cloud storage arrays.
