Ultrastar DC HC310 (7K6)

6TB & 4TB
3.5-inch
Enterprise Hard Drive
*Previously Ultrastar 7K6

  • Economical Capacity – Helps address budget and access requirements
  • High Performance – 12% faster than prior generation Ultrastar 7K6000
  • Drop-in Ready – Designed for traditional storage and server applications

As the industry evolves to develop purpose-built solutions for growing data storage requirements, IT managers continue to rely on lower capacity drives that are economical to acquire, yet deliver quick and reliable data access for traditional data center applications. Ultrastar DC HC310 is a low-capacity HDD, with 6TB and 4TB offerings, that helps address economic and access requirements of many traditional IT workloads. Lower capacity drives also help address architecture limitations. The Ultrastar DC HC310 is designed for traditional storage and server applications as well as distributed and scalable computing, including block and file storage architectures, providing economical capacities, fast 7200 RPM performance and lower $/unit acquisition cost to help ease budget constraints.
