The HAS5300 drives are 3.5" SAS disks with support for 550 TB per year workloads, are rated for a 2.5 million hours mean-time-to-failure (MTTF), and come in 16TB, 12TB, and 8TB models. They include persistent write cache technology to further ensure data integrity.
The drives can be used anywhere a 3.5" drive can go, and especially deliver massive scalability when paired with Synology’s NAS products. Customers can scale up to 180 drives on the Synology SA series, or can maximise iSCSI system availability with the dual controller setup on the UC3200 active-active IP SAN.
"The drives deliver up to 274 MB/s sustained data transfer speeds, making them the ideal choice for enterprises that require maximum performance and reliability," said Peggy Weng, product manager at Synology Inc. "Whether you are performing large-scale video surveillance, multimedia post-production, or other high-volume processes, the HAS5300 drives deliver consistent enterprise-grade performance."
The drives have undergone more than 200,000 hours of compatibility and stress testing to ensure unparalleled reliability and integration with Synology NAS units. The HAS5300 was optimised during development to ensure the best performance possible, including a significant performance improvement in RAID rebuild performance.
"Custom firmware and optimization for Synology hardware enable 27% faster RAID rebuild times on systems with HAS5300 drives compared with similar-class drives on the market, significantly reducing the time that arrays spend in a degraded state and helping customers boost long-term system availability," Weng said.
Firmware updates will be deployed with DiskStation Manager (DSM) operating system updates and the drives come with a five-year limited warranty.
The HAS5300 8TB and 12TB drives have a 256MiB cache, while the 16TB drive has a 512MiB cache. The drives are rated with a maximum sustained transfer rate of 230MiB/s for the 8TB model, 242MiB/s for the 12TB model, and 262MiB/s for the 16TB model.
The drives are available for purchase now.
