HGST pushes SSD to 1.6TB

By

Western Digital subsidiary HGST has released new SAS SSDs with capacities up to 1.6TB.

The new members of HGST's Ultrastar family comprise one high endurance 800GB model and a pair of 1.6TB drives, one for normal use and the other for 'read mostly' applications.

The Ultrastar 12Gbps SAS SSDs come in three versions, offering different combinations of write endurance, write performance, and cost.

The MH.B variants are rated at 25 full random writes per day for five years, the MM drives offer 10 per day, and the MR suffix denotes drives intended to read-intensive purposes.

Available capacities now range from 100GB to 800GB (MH.B), 200GB to 1.6TB (MM) and 250GB to 1.6TB (MR).

Security options include instant secure erase, self-encryption, and FIPS 140-2 certified self-encryption.

"HGST leads the industry in SAS SSDs, which continue to be the preferred storage building blocks for a large variety of server and storage systems that support a growing set of data-intensive enterprise applications," said HGST vice president of SSD product marketing Ulrich Hansen.

"As our OEM, cloud and enterprise customers implement solutions to meet a variety of storage needs, SSDs and HDDs will increasingly be deployed in tiered pools of storage based on respective TCO strengths."

The new drives are currently being qualified for use by various vendors, and are available immediately.

INTRODUCING ITWIRE TV

iTWire TV offers a unique value to the Tech Sector by providing a range of video interviews, news, views and reviews, and also provides the opportunity for vendors to promote your company and your marketing messages.

We work with you to develop the message and conduct the interview or product review in a safe and collaborative way. Unlike other Tech YouTube channels, we create a story around your message and post that on the homepage of ITWire, linking to your message.

In addition, your interview post message can be displayed in up to 7 different post displays on our the iTWire.com site to drive traffic and readers to your video content and downloads. This can be a significant Lead Generation opportunity for your business.

We also provide 3 videos in one recording/sitting if you require so that you have a series of videos to promote to your customers. Your sales team can add your emails to sales collateral and to the footer of their sales and marketing emails.

See the latest in Tech News, Views, Interviews, Reviews, Product Promos and Events. Plus funny videos from our readers and customers.
