Featured Products

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.
  • Flexible – Choice of SAS or SATA and up to 24 slots can be populated with SSDs for a data acceleration tier.
  • Innovative – Patented IsoVibe™ and ArcticFlow™ technologies improve performance and cooling.

Ultrastar Data60

The Ultrastar Data60 is a key element of next-generation disaggregated storage and software-defined storage (SDS) systems, delivering high density and the flexibility to balance performance with cost. This new platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprise customers, storage OEMs, cloud service providers and resellers/integrators that require dense, shared HDD or hybrid storage. The Ultrastar Data60® Hybrid Storage Platform provides the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations to balance capacity, performance and cost. 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 60 HGST HelioSeal® HDDs providing up to 720TB of raw storage in a 4U enclosure.
  • Flexible – Choice of SAS or SATA and up to 24 slots can be populated with SSDs for a data acceleration tier.
  • Innovative – Patented IsoVibe™ and ArcticFlow™ technologies improve performance and cooling.

Ultrastar Serv24

Integrating compute with NVMe™ flash storage, the Ultrastar Serv24 delivers performance and flexibility for Software-Defined Storage (SDS) infrastructure. There is a never-ending need to increase data center performance for storage-intensive applications. The Ultrastar® Serv24 is designed to be a performance-optimized platform for software defined storage (SDS). By integrating CPUs and NVMe™ SSDs in the same unit, our storage server provides a tested and validated building block for deploying the SDS stack on high-performance storage. Whether as a stand-alone file server or part of a scale-out deployment, the Ultrastar Serv24 is built to deliver screaming performance in software-defined storage environments. With low latency and consistently high bandwidth, data is accelerated to the speed of flash.

  • High Density – up to 24 NVMe 2.5″ SSD modules; capacities ranging 1.6TB to 7.68TB up to 184TB in a 2U enclosure.
  • Flexible – 3 CPU Choices – Entry-Level, Mid-Range, High-Performance.
  • Expandable – 2 PCIe Gen3 x16 slots available for expansion.

2U24 Flash Storage Platform

Designed for Software-Defined Storage (SDS) systems, this flash storage platform balances performance with capacity, delivering high IOPS, low latency at up to 184TB capacity. The 2U24 Flash Storage Platform is a key element of next generation Software-Defined Storage (SDS) systems. It offers performance advantages as well as flexibility to improve compute-to-capacity ratio by decoupling available storage from CPU resources. The 2U24 Flash Storage Platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprises and cloud service providers who require dense, shared flash storage.

  • High Density – Up to 24 2.5” SAS or SATA SSD modules in a 2U unit.
  • Scalable – Connect up to six hosts via the 12Gb/s SAS3 interface.
  • Performance – Up to 4.7M IOPS, 23 GB/s, less than 1ms latency.

4U60G2 Storage Platform

When data centers need storage expansion that delivers low power and high capacity with high-availability, they rely on the HGST 4U60G2 Storage Platform. This high density, scalable, and cost-effective design includes up to 60 Ultrastar® 3.5-inch drive modules in a 4U enclosure, supports up to 8 hosts with SAS 12Gb/s performance, and delivers enterprise-class serviceability with hot-swappable components.

  • High Density – Up to 720TB* in a 4U enclosure
