Description: WD Ultrastar C15K600 HUC156060CSS200 - Hard drive - 600 GB - internal - 2.5" SFF - SAS 12Gb/s - 15030 rpm - buffer: 128 MB
Mfr Part #: 0B28953
HGST delivers the world's fastest hard disk drive in the Ultrastar C15K600, a 15K RPM, 2.5-inch small form factor hard drive ideally suited for mission-critical data center and high performance computing environments. Ultrastar C15K600 provides double the capacity of 2.5-inch 15K drives, and matches the highest capacity point of 3.5-inch 15K drives. This addition to the Ultrastar small form factor (SFF) family outperforms not only the competition but also legacy 3.5-inch 15K drives from HGST, achieving more than 38% faster sequential and 2.5x faster random write performance for faster data processing while consuming less than half as much active and idle power.
Ultrastar C15K600 leverages an industry-leading 12 Gb/s SAS interface and offers the broadest range of security and encryption options available on enterprise-class hard drives, including instant secure erase (ISE), trusted computing group (TCG) enterprise SSC-compliant self-encrypting drives (SED) and TCG enterprise SED with FIPS (federal information processing standard) 140-2 certification, level 2.
- Mission-critical performance - 15,000 RPM for faster data access
- Best-in-class power management - enables industry-leading power efficiency
- Enterprise-class protection - multiple security and data encryption options
- 2 M hours MTBF rating
- 128 MB cache buffer manages data efficiency
- Power and density efficiency
The compact size and power management innovations designed into the Ultrastar C15K600 enable high levels of power efficiency and translate into reduced power requirements and lower cooling costs, an ideal choice for enterprise data centers faced with space and power limitations. Compared to legacy 3.5-inch 15Kdrives, Ultrastar C15K600 consumes 70% less space yet provides up to 55% lower active power and 54% lower idle power requirements. HGST Advanced Power Management technology, with multi-state idle modes, uses industry-recognized standards for power optimization and can be pre-programmed or manually initiated in the system.
- Enterprise reliability and data security
The Ultrastar C15K600 offers the broadest range of security options and encryption options available from HGST, including instant secure erase (ISE), trusted computing group (TCG) enterprise SSC-compliant self-encrypting drives (SED), and TCG enterprise SED with FIPS (federal information processing standard) 140-2 certification, level 2, which provides data-at-rest and tamper evidence protection for the most stringent regulatory data security compliance requirements. Ultrastar C15K600 extends the company's longstanding tradition off reliability leadership with a 2 M hour MTBF rating, an annualized failure rate (AFR) of 0.44%.
