Overview
Mid-capacity Drives The Ultrastar DC HC300-series provides low to mid-capacity drives that are economical to acquire, yet deliver quick and reliable data access for traditional data center applications.

Economical Capacities and Fast Data Access Key Requirements for HDDs in the Data Center IT managers need to offer storage tiers as they deploy purpose-built solutions to meet their on-prem, off-prem & cloud storage requirements

While helium filled drives enable the highest capacities, air-filled drives offer important benefits

With a lower TCA (total cost of acquisition), legacy options, and higher access density (IOPs/TB), they are the perfect choice for maintaining a desired level of performance while allowing customers to tailor budgets to meet their needs

The Ultrastar® DC HC300-series help to address data center requirements by providing capacities from 4TB to 10TB while increasing performance over prior generations

They are designed for a variety of applications including traditional storage arrays, rack-mounted storage enclosures and server-based distributed storage systems, as well as distributed and scalable computing, including block and file storage architectures

They are offered at 7,200 RPM with either 6Gb/s SATA or 12Gb/s SAS interface in Advanced Format 4Kn and 512e format

A 512n option is also available on 4TB models to support legacy systems with native 512-byte block sizes.

Technology Innovation Delivers Efficiency and Performance for Traditional and Legacy Systems Ultrastar DC HC300-series are based on a proven and cost-efficient air-based HDD platform design, with Conventional Magnetic Recording (CMR) technology in a 3.5-inch large form factor

These HDDs leverage common hardware and firmware while featuring a second-generation, dual-stage microactuator to enhance head positioning accuracy for better drive performance

Write performance gains are also supported by Western Digital's media cache architecture, a disk-based caching technology that provides a large cache area on the disk, improving reliability and data integrity

Finally, the addition of a flash-based non-volatile cache (NVC) on both SATA and SAS models helps improve write performance.

Internal hard drives with higher capacities and lower TCO

Data center decisions are driven by TCO. The Ultrastar DC HC550, with 14TB, 16TB & 18TB, play a leading role in reducing TCO.

Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Drives the Data Center Architecture

Data center decisions are driven by TCO. Higher capacity hard drives play a leading role in reducing TCO. An 18TB data center internal hard drive provides 29% more capacity in the same form factor as a 14TB HDD. Higher capacity HDDs enable data centers to lower CapEx by reducing supporting hardware and system level costs when compared to lower capacity drives. Helium-sealed, low power, high reliability drives reduce energy and maintenance costs, contributing to OpEx savings. For example, a data center using 18TB HDDs vs. 14TB HDDs can require 22% fewer racks while consuming 21% less power per TB at idle, resulting in significant overall TCO reduction for data center environments.

Raising the Capacity Bar with New Technologies

Ultrastar DC HC550 integrates a suite of technologies on a 9-disk platform to create a new class of HDDs. 18TB capacity is achieved by combining technologies that improve areal density working together with technologies that improve performance and reduce power consumption.

The first internal hard drives in the industry to harness Energy-Assisted Magnetic Recording (EAMR) technology improves writability and therefore increases areal density.

The industry's first Triple Stage Actuator (TSA) enhances head-positioning accuracy, delivering better performance and increased areal density.

HelioSeal® technology is the foundation for Western Digital's high capacity HDDs and this is the 6th generation of HelioSeal product. Western Digital has shipped >65 million HelioSeal products to date.
