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.

High Capacity

Up to 14TB HDDs, drop-in ready for Big Data workloads.

Low Power

Up to 58% lower idle W/TB than 8TB Ultrastar air-filled drives.

More Reliable

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
