HGST 15K600 overview

  • 1Description

The 300GB Ultrastar 15K600 Hard Disk Drive from HGST provides ultimate performance with high capacity. It can store up to 300GB of data while spinning at 15,000 rpm. The sequential performance is increased by 23% to keep data moving faster. The 64MB cache buffer optimizes read / write response times. The 6Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and 4Gb/s Fiber Channel Arbitrated Loop (FCAL) interfaces support the reliability required in the most demanding enterprise computing environments like online transaction processing, intensive data analysis, multi-user applications and data warehousing.

The power usage is reduced by up to 31% to help reduce the cooling requirements in data centers. In addition, the Advanced Power Management feature enables multiple idle modes in order to optimize power usage and save considerably on energy costs. Furthermore, the larger capacity enables higher data storage density in the current footprint without further expansion of the data center. These eco-friendly features qualify the hard drive for the EcoTrac classification. The self-encrypting hard drives conform to the Trusted Computing Group Enterprise, a Security Subsystem Class encryption specification. You can now reduce costs associated with drive retirement and extend drive life by enabling repurposing of drives.
