Ultrastar DC HC300 Series

Ultrastar DC HC300 Series

Medium Capacity for High
Access-Density Requirements

OVERVIEW

Delivering Economics and Access Speed to Data Center Applications and Workloads


As the industry evolves to develop purpose-built solutions for growing data storage requirements, IT managers continue to rely on mid-range capacity drives that are economical to acquire, yet deliver quick and reliable data access for traditional data center applications. Designed to handle workloads up to 550TB per year, the Ultrastar DC HC300 series is a proven air-platform design that delivers up to 8TB of capacity to help address the economic and access-density requirements of many data center workloads. Ideal for storage and server applications, as well as distributed and scalable computing (including block and file storage architectures), the Ultrastar DC HC300 series provides fast 7,200 RPM performance and lower acquisition cost to help ease budget constraints.
