Seagate Technology announced the launch of a new hard drive, Seagate Enterprise Performance 15K HDD v6 targeting enterprise and cloud customers.
Featuring capacities up to 900GB and delivering data performance up to 315MB/s, the drive is the industry’s fastest and highest-performing hard drive, Seagate claims.
“Our new Enterprise Performance 15K HDD ensures that the data is secure, available on demand and always bringing more value to our customers,“ said John Morris, vice president of global HDD products at Seagate.
“Performance demands on enterprise datacenters today are increasing as customers consider agile storage solutions to handle diverse workloads. The key to success is to apply the right technologies to the right workloads, and we are seeing increased adoption of hybrid arrays of HDDs and SSDs enhanced by software-based caching,” said Brian Payne, executive director, server solutions, Dell EMC. “By delivering higher performance and capacity, Seagate’s latest Enterprise Performance 15K HDD will be a sound investment for dynamic server-storage environments.”
The demand for 15K HDD technology in servers continues to meet the needs of data center managers aiming to manage costs while addressing mission critical workloads, performance bottlenecks and network complexity.
The Enterprise Performance 15K HDD is a high-capacity, 2.5-inch small form factor drive designed for data center efficiency requiring minimum operating power in a dense server environment, Seagate said.
Further, the Enterprise Performance 15K HDD family delivers enterprise-class specifications such as 2 million hours MTBF (mean time between failures) and a low annualized failure rate of 0.44 percent. It will be available worldwide this quarter.
