One third more capacity and 23 percent lower energy consumption. Available today. That’s the power of helium. Delivering the industry’s leading capacity at 8TB, Ultrastar He8 is based on the widely accepted and proven HelioSeal platform. HelioSeal technology replaces air with helium inside the drive, reducing air turbulence and enabling 7Stac, a seven-disk design in a traditional 3.5-inch form factor. Ultrastar He8 goes beyond what any air based HDD can do and seamlessly integrates into virtually any mainstream enterprise environment. Cooler and quieter with industry leading power efficiency (Watts/TB) and no compromise performance, the Ultrastar He8 lays the foundation for future growth in massive scale out environments. We recognize the growing pressures that data centers face. Volume is expanding, operating costs are rising while budgets remain flat. Lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) has become the focus of data center architects. Ultrastar He8 provides the best TCO value proposition and delivers greater storage efficiency with breakthroughs in capacity, power efficiency and best-in-class performance. This HelioSeal hard drive achieves up to 3X higher random write performance than the prior generation, Ultrastar He6, thanks to HGST media cache architecture, a disk based caching technology. He8 offers a 12Gb/s SAS (6Gb/s SATA) interface for easy integration into high performance data centers. Features like Rebuild Assist dramatically reduce RAID rebuild times and maintain system performance during the rebuild process. Learn more in our Rebuild Assist technical brief. Compliance and privacy requirements drive the need for increased data security. Ultrastar He8 offers security and encryption options to protect data from unauthorized use. Instant Secure Erase (ISE) models expedite drive redeployment and retirement. Encryption models protect data with hardware based encryption, including a Trusted Computing Group (TCG) option with FIPS 140-2 certification, Level 2. The Ultrastar He8 extends HGST’s long standing tradition of reliability leadership with a 2.5M hour MTBF rating and a 5-year limited warranty. HGSTs drive reliability and security options also help lower data center TCO.
