18TB Highest Capacity Enterprise Grade
5 Years Limited Warranty
Ultrastar® DC HC550
3.5-INCH HELIUM PLATFORM DATA CENTER HARD DRIVES
18/16TB capacity in a standard 3.5-inch form factor
CMR technology works with all capacity enterprise applications & environment
Reliable, field-proven, 6th generation design
Industrys first HDD with Energy Assisted Magnetic Recording technology
Industrys first Triple Stage Actuator
HelioSeal® design delivers outstanding power efficiency (Watts/TB)
Bulk storage using object storage solutions like Ceph and OpenStack® Swift
Primary and secondary storage for Apache Hadoop® for Big Data Analytics
Massive scale-out (MSO), high-density data centers
Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Drives the DataCenter Architecture
Data center decisions are driven by TCO. Higher capacity hard drives play a leading rolein reducing TCO. An 18TB data center HDD provides 29% more capacity in the sameform factor as a 14TB HDD. Higher capacity HDDs enable data centers to lower CAPEX by reducing supporting hardware and system level costs when compared to lower capacitydrives. Helium-sealed, low power, high reliability drives reduce energy and maintenancecosts, contributing to OPEX savings. For example, a data center using 18TB HDDs vs. 14TBHDDs requires 22% fewer racks while consuming 21% less power per TB at idle, resulting insignificant overall TCO reduction for data center environments
Raising the Capacity Bar with New Technologies
Ultrastar DC HC550 integrates a suite of technologies on a 9-disk platform to create anew class of HDDs. 18TB capacity is achieved by combining technologies that improveareal density working together with technologies that improve IOPS and reduce power consumption
The first HDD in the industry to harness Energy Assisted Magnetic Recording (EAMR)technology that enables higher media precision and therefore increased areal density
The industrys first Triple Stage Actuator (TSA) enhances head-positioning accuracy,applications & environmentsdelivering better performance and data integrity to increase areal density.
HelioSeal® technology is the foundation for Western Digitals high capacity HDDs and this is the 6th generation of HelioSeal product. Western Digital has shipped >65 million HelioSeal products to date
Trusted Reliability and Quality for Data at Scale
With its massive capacity and 2.5M MTBF (projected) reliability rating, the Ultrastar DC HC550 is ideal for object storage implementations. Object storage systems with erasure coding provide better data durability compared to RAID systems, given their tolerance for simultaneous error conditions.
The DC HC550 offers security and encryption options to help protect data fromunauthorized use, including SED models in both SATA & SAS. An optional SED-FIPS will be available in a SAS configuration.
Trust Western Digital and the Ultrastar DC HC550 hard drive to deliver highest capacity, lower TCO and more value to your data center.
