WD Ultrastar 16TB DC HC320 SATA 3.5" Hard Drive - WUH721816ALE6L4
Ultrastar DC HC510
Driving up Capacity and Driving Down TCO
The Ultrastar DC HC500-series is designed for public and private cloud environments where storage density and cost-efficient infrastructure is critical.
More Value to the Data Center with Capacity, Power Efficiency and Reliability
Laying the foundation for a worry-free data center, Western Digital delivers an exceptional capacity hard drive for the enterprise – Ultrastar DC HC510, previously known as Ultrastar He10 and part of our HC500 series of helium-filled hard drives. Designed to handle workloads up to 550TB per year, the Ultrastar DC HC510 uses PMR technology and is the industry’s first 10TB1 drive that is drop-in ready for any enterprise capacity application or environment. Based on field proven, third-generation HelioSeal® technology, it offers one of the lowest power profiles in the industry to help data center architects meet eco-environmental goals and requirements. Targeted at 2.5M hours MTBF2, the DC HC510 provides the highest reliability rating available of all HDDs on the market today by building on the successful design of its 8TB and 6TB predecessors. Trust Western Digital and Ultrastar DC HC510 to deliver more capacity, more efficiency, more reliability and more value to your data center.
HelioSeal® Technology Helps Solve Challenges Facing Next Generation Data Centers
Data centers are facing growing pressures. Data volume is expanding, operating costs are rising, yet budgets remain flat. Lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) has become the focus of data center architects and the Ultrastar DC HC510 provides the best value proposition and greatest storage efficiency available. Compared to our 8TB air-filled drives, this HelioSeal hard drive provides 25% more capacity, uses 28% less idle power, is 43% more power efficient (Watts/TB), and is 25% more reliable, rated at 2.5M hours MTBF2. New features include a second-generation, dual-stage actuator—the Western Digital Micro-Actuator—enhancing head-positioning accuracy to deliver better performance, data integrity and overall drive reliability, especially in multi-drive environments where operational vibration is present.
