Ultrastar DC HC530 14TB
Delivering the highest capacity to conquer the data explosion.
Beyond Air. Helium Takes You Higher.
Responding to the complex needs of the modern data center, Western Digital has developed HelioSeal technology, a foundational building block for high-capacity hard disk drives (HDDs). This innovative technology hermetically seals the HDD and replaces the air inside with helium, which is one-seventh the density of air. The less dense atmosphere resets the boundaries and challenges of conventional high-capacity HDDs, allowing for dramatic increases in efficiency, reliability and value.
Up to 14TB HDDs, drop-in ready for Big Data workloads.
Up to 58% lower idle W/TB than 8TB Ultrastar air-filled drives.
25% higher MTBF rating than air-filled HDDs.
Netflix Runs on HelioSeal Technology
We’re saving about 90 watts per appliance with helium drives. This savings is significant when you’re talking about thousands of streaming appliances. — David Fullagar, Director of Content Delivery Architecture, Netflix
