Description: HGST SSC+ Gen3 Enterprise - Solid state drive - encrypted - 1.6 TB - hot-swap - 2.5" - SAS 12Gb/s - FIPS 140-2 Level 2, 256-bit AES - Self-Encrypting Drive (SED), TCG Enterprise SSC - for System x3550 M5 (2.5"); x3650 M5 (2.5")
Mfr Part #: 01GR610
This solid-state high-performance self-encrypting drive provides great security for data-at-rest and helps reduce IT drive retirement costs in the data center.
- Based on proven HGST Ultrastar SSD1600MM drive technology
- Uses 20nm Multi-Level Cell (MLC) NAND flash memory
- Impressive endurance
- High read performance and consistently low latencies will fulfill the client's needs in the enterprise space
- High reliability and enhanced ruggedness
- Energy-saving, with 9W of typical power consumption per drive
- Absence of moving parts to reduce potential failure points in the server
- Advanced Encrypting Standard (AES) 256-bit encryption
- Full end-to-end data path protection
- Automatic encryption
This self-encrypting drive comprehensively resolves security issues, making encryption both easy and affordable. When this self-encrypting drive is in normal use, its owner doesn't need to maintain authentication keys in order to access the data on the drive. The self-encrypting drive will encrypt data being written to the drive and decrypt data being read from it, all without requiring an authentication key from the owner.
- Instant secure erase
The self-encrypting drive provides instant data encryption key destruction via cryptographic erasure. When it is time to repurpose the drive, the owner sends a command to the drive to perform a cryptographic erasure. Cryptographic erasure simply replaces the encryption key inside the encrypted drive, making it impossible to ever decrypt the data encrypted with the deleted key. The self-encrypting drive reduces IT operating expenses by reducing asset control challenges and disposal costs.
The self-encrypting drive includes a feature called auto-lock mode to help secure active data against theft. Using the self-encrypting drive when auto-lock mode is enabled simply requires securing the drive with an authentication key. When secured in this manner, the drive's data encryption key is locked whenever the drive is powered down. In other words, the moment the self-encrypting drive is switched off or unplugged, it automatically locks down the drive's data.
