Ultrastar Data102

The Ultrastar Data102 is a key element of next-generation disaggregated storage and software-defined storage (SDS) systems, delivering extreme density and the flexibility to balance performance with cost. The Ultrastar Data102 provides up to 1.2PB of raw storage in a compact and efficient form factor. HGST HelioSeal® drives ensure cool running, quiet operation and high reliability. A high performance data tier can be set up for demanding applications by using SSDs in up to 24 of the drive slots. Additionally, it features two new technologies: Arctic Flow and IsoVibe. IsoVibe reduces vibration-induced performance degradation, while ArcticFlow overcomes the cooling issues by introducing cool air into the middle of the platform. Both these technologies contribute to long-term reliability, enabling our five-year limited warranty on the entire platform.

  • High Density – Up to 102 HGST HelioSeal® HDDs, providing up to 1.2PB of raw storage in a 4U enclosure.
