Ultrastar DC HC530

Ultrastar DC HC530

14TB
3.5-inch Helium Platform
Enterprise Hard Drive

  • High Capacity – 14TB PMR HDD, drop-in ready for capacity workloads
  • Low Power – 58% lower idle W/TB than 8TB Ultrastar air-filled drives
  • More Reliable – Unbeaten MTBF rating for an HDD at 2.5M hours

The breadth and depth of big data is driving the universal need for higher capacities across a broad spectrum of applications and workloads. Laying the foundation for a worry-free data center, Western Digital delivers capacity to conquer the data explosion–the 14TB Ultrastar® DC HC530 hard drive. Built using HelioSeal technology, the industry’s only fifth-generation helium platform, Ultrastar DC HC530 is designed for public and private cloud environments where storage density, Watts/TB and $/TB are critical parameters for creating the most cost-efficient infrastructure. HelioSeal technology is key to achieving higher drive capacities, higher reliability ratings and extreme power efficiency for lower levels of total cost of ownership (TCO) for cloud and enterprise customers.
