Store and access up to 8TB of your files when installed in a desktop computer, data center, storage array, or backup environment with the 8TB Ultrastar He8 3.5" Helium Platform Enterprise Hard Drive from HGST. 8TB will allow you to store movies, photos, music, documents, and much more. Compatible with systems running Windows, Mac OS, and Linux, this hard drive connects to your system's 3.5" bay via the SATA 6 GB/s interface. Through the SATA 6 Gb/s interface, the system also features internal data transfer speeds up to 600 MB/s and sustained data transfer rates up to 205 MB/s. This drive operates at 7200 rpm and the 128MB cache helps ensure uninterrupted data transfers.

Designed with Enterprise-use in mind, this drive may be used in 24x7 always-on operating environments. This Ultrastar drive contains several features to help ensure a strong operating life including the ability to withstand temperatures up to 158°F, 2.5 million hours MTBF, and 600,000 load/unload cycles.

This 8TB Ultrastar He8 drive is filled with helium instead of regular air. As helium is lighter than air, this helps reduce vibration, power consumption, noise levels, temperature, and weight, while also increasing drive capacity by up to 50% over the previous generation.

With its 8TB capacity, the Ultrastar He8 features 5.1W when idle, a reduced weight of 22.9 oz (650g), and running temperatures that are 4-5°C cooler, all of which help to lower the total cost of ownership (TCO). Comparing this 8TB drive to a 6TB air drive includes up to:
  • 33% more capacity
  • 23% lower idle power
  • 44% better Watts/TB
  • Rotational Vibrational Safeguard
    Helps maintain drive performance in high rotational vibration environments and multi-drive systems
    Thermal Fly-Height Control With Internal Thermal Sensor
    Helps lower the soft error rate for improved reliability and performance
    Head Load/Unload
    Helps protect the disk during non-operation
    SMART Command Transport
    SMART Command Transport tells the drive to self-monitor its performance and report any errors that may cause drive failure or data compromising. This allows the end-user to take preemptive action before the incident occurs
    Optional Bulk Data Encryption helps encrypt private data, providing security and simplifying redeployment
    7Stac Disk Design
    This drive offers a seven-disk design in a traditional 3.5" form factor
    SATA Interface
    The hard drive connects via the SATA 6 Gb/s interface
