Ultrastar Data60 High Density JBOD Storage | ACNC - HGST Ultrastar Data60

The Ultrastar Data60 is a key element of next‑generation disaggregated storage and software-defined storage (SDS) systems, delivering high density and the flexibility to balance performance with cost.

High density – Up to 60 HGST HelioSeal® HDDs providing up to 720TB of raw storage in a 4U enclosure

Flexible – Choice of SAS or SATA and up to 24 slots can be populated with SSDs for a data acceleration tier

Innovative – Patented IsoVibe™ and ArcticFlow™ technologies improve performance and cooling

This new high density JBOD storage platform addresses the demanding storage needs of large enterprise customers, storage OEMs, cloud service providers and resellers/integrators that require dense, shared HDD or hybrid storage. The Ultrastar Data60® Hybrid Storage Platform provides the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations to balance capacity, performance, and cost.

Designed for Big Data

Conventional dense disk shelves frequently suffer from performance degradation due to induced vibration from adjacent drives. Traditional platforms also have cooling challenges as the cooling air passes over successive rows of drives, losing effectiveness as it gets heated up along the airflow path. Developing storage devices and platforms side-by-side, we address these challenges through vertical innovation, a set of technologies developed based on a holistic view of devices, platform, and their interactions. The first two of these patented technologies are IsoVibe™ and ArcticFlow™. IsoVibe reduces vibration-induced performance degradation, while ArcticFlow overcomes the cooling issues by introducing cool air into the middle of the platform. Both these technologies contribute to long-term reliability, enabling our five‑year limited warranty on the entire platform.
