Seagate ST3600057FC overview

  • 1Description

The 600GB Cheetah 15K.7 Fibre Channel 3.5" Internal Hard Drive (OEM) from Seagate is a high performance, high capacity data storage drive that has been designed for environments such engineering workstations, network servers, mainframes, and supercomputers. It is also well suited for business and transaction processing, storage area networks and network attached storage, E-mail, decision support, Internet, and e-commerce.

This 3.5" drive features a 600GB capacity and a 4 Gb/s Fibre Channel interface that provides external data transfer rates of up to 400 MB/s, internal data transfer rates of up to 2370 Mb/s, and sustained data transfer rates of up to 204 MB/s. It also features a fast rotational speed of 15,000 rpm, which will allow data to be accessed more quickly than with a 7200 rpm drive and its 16 MB/s cache will help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers. Additionally, the drive's 1.6 million hours MTBF combined with its AFR of 0.44% and non-recoverable read error rate of 1 x 1016 will help to ensure that this drive has a strong operational life.

Cheetah 15K.7 drives further help to enhance durability by using a dedicated landing zone at the innermost radius of the media to help eliminate the possibility of destroying or degrading data by landing in the data zone. The heads automatically go to the landing zone when power is removed from the drove. Furthermore, an automatic shipping lock helps prevent potential damage to the heads and discs that results from movement during shipping and handling. The shipping lock disengages and the head load process begins when power is applied to the drive. Lastly, the drive also uses a high performance actuator assembly with a low-inertia, balanced, patented, and straight arm design that helps to provide strong performance with minimal power dissipation.

Key Advantages

Third-generation perpendicular recording delivers up to 600GB of storage
Sustained data rate of up to 204 MB/s
Drive reliability at 1.6 million-hours MTBF
PowerTrim technology provides an improvement in GBs/W at idle over typical 3.5" hard drives
Read/write advances deliver nonrecoverable error rate of 1 x 1016
4 Gb/s Fibre Channel interface

Best-Fit Applications

Business and transaction processing
Storage area networks and networked attached storage
E-mail, decision support, Internet, and e-commerce

Low Cost of Ownership

The 7th generation Seagate Cheetah 15K.7 drive is a fast, high capacity, and reliable drive
Lower watts/GB ratio helps achieve reduced power and cooling costs while optimizing capacity requirements
Higher performance with fewer drives-reducing support infrastructure, physical space requirements and storage management costs
High reliability with increased system reliability due to the need for fewer drives

High Reliability

Seagate continues to focus on reliability and data protection. MTBF is 1.6 million hours
Seagate-exclusive enhanced Error Correction Code helps to better maintains performance throughout the life of the drive and reduces the probability of lost data
The third generation of Seagate Background Media Scan proactively scans the media for potential defects during drive idle time. It enables incipient errors to be corrected before data is lost
A quick and robust download feature loads new firmware in seconds, with built-in protection to help ensure no corruption in the event of a power failure during firmware switch
