As petabyte (PB) growth continues to increase at a rapid pace, corporate and cloud data centers are under extreme pressure to improve the efficiency of storage. To address this data center challenge, HGST introduces Ultrastar 7K6000, a 3.5" hard drive, for capacity-optimized enterprise applications. Ultrastar 7K6000 provides 50% more capacity and 33% better power efficiency in terms of Watts per terabyte (W/TB) than its predecessor, Ultrastar 7K6000 also delivers greater storage efficiency through best-in-class performance, achieving up to 3X higher write performance, even at higher workloads, thanks to HGST media cache architecture, a disk-based caching technology, which provides a large non-volatile cache on the disk. Media cache also allows for improved reliability and data integrity during unexpected power loss.
