Ultrastar® DC HC500 Disk Drive

Driving Up Capacity and Driving Down TCO for Cloud and Hyperscale Data Centers

The breadth and depth of Big Data is driving the universal need for higher capacities across a broad spectrum of applications and workloads. Laying the foundation for a worry-free data center, Western Digital delivers the capacity to conquer the data explosion with the Ultrastar DC HC500 series of hard drives. Built using HelioSeal technology, the industry’s only fifth-generation helium platform, the DC HC500 series is

designed for public and private cloud environments, where storage density, Watts/TB and $/TB are critical for creating the most cost-efficient infrastructure. HelioSeal technology is key to achieving higher drive capacities, greater reliability ratings and extreme power efficiency. The result is a lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for our cloud and enterprise customers.

Highlights

  • Up to 14TB capacity in a standard 3.5-inch form factor
  • Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) technology works seamlessly in capacity enterprise environments
  • Reliable, field-proven design across five generations
  • HelioSeal design delivers power efficiency (Watts/TB)
  • 2.5M hours MTBF rating and a 5-year limited warranty

Applications and Workloads

  • Cloud & Hyperscale Storage
  • Massive Scale-Out (MSO), high-density data centers
  • Distributed File Systems
  • Bulk storage using Object storage solutions like Ceph™ and OpenStack Swift
  • Primary and secondary storage for Apache Hadoop® for Big Data Analytics
  • Surveillance Analytics
