HGST 7K3000 overview

  • 1Description

The 2TB UltraStar 7K3000 Hard Disk Drive from HGST is a 7200 rpm hard drive rated at 2.0 million hours MTBF. The UltraStar 7K3000 represents the fifth-generation HGST 5-platter mechanical design that has been field-proven by top server and storage OEMs as well as leading Internet giants. It reduces downtime, eliminating service calls and keeps cost to a minimum. Engineered to offer high reliability, the UltraStar 7K3000 has been put through grueling design tests during development and stringent ongoing reliability testing during manufacturing.

Increases Capacity Density by 50%
To meet the increasing demands of storage, security and efficiency, the UltraStar 7K3000 delivers 50% more capacity in the same footprint and does so at a 32% reduction in watts/GB. It is now possible to achieve a colossal 1.8 petabytes (PB) in the footprint of a standard 19" (48.26cm) enterprise storage rack by stacking 10 4U, 60-bay enclosures
Provides Interface and Encryption
The UltraStar 7K3000 dual-port SAS model is targeted as the emerging 6Gb/s SAS enterprise infrastructure and is available with industry standard TCG Enterprise encryption. When enabled, hardware-based implementations encrypt all data on the drive using a private security key as it is written to the disk and then decrypt it with the key as it is retrieved, giving you an extreme level of data protection. These security options not only protect sensitive data but also reduce the time and effort involved in re-deploying hard drives since without the key, the data is unrecoverable
Combines 7200 rpm Performance and Granular Power Control
Operating at 7200 rpm, the UltraStar 7K3000 offers better overall performance than slower rpm capacity-oriented drives and does so at impressively low power consumption rates. It can help data centers achieve lower AC power and HVAC requirements. With 5 Advanced Power Management modes, the UltraStar 7K3000 achieves a 59% reduction in watts during low rpm idle mode and uses less than1W during standby / sleep modes, freeing up precious head room for growing enterprise needs
Committed to a Sustainable Environment
The UltraStar 7K3000 demonstrates HGST ecological leadership with its halogen-free design and power-efficient operation. Both these features serve to qualify the drive for the HGST Eco-Trac classification, which identifies products that minimize environmental impact in the areas of product design, manufacturing, operation and disposal
