Ultrastar Data102 Hybrid Storage Platform

Ultrastar Data102 Hybrid Storage Platform

The 102-Bay Next-Generation Hybrid Platform for Software-Defined Storage


Designed for Extreme Density and Flexibility

The Ultrastar Data102 hybrid storage platform is a key element of next-generation disaggregated storage and Software-Defined Storage (SDS) systems. The extremely dense form factor provides the flexibility to specify the HDD and SSD combinations for balancing capacity, performance, and cost.

A flash data acceleration tier can be enabled to serve both fast data and big data applications from a single platform. The Ultrastar Data102 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.
