Ultrastar He6

Ultrastar He6

6TB
3.5-inch Helium Platform
Enterprise Hard Drive

  • World’s first helium HDD – Patented HelioSeal™ technology enables this new building block for future growth
  • Industry’s first 6TB HDD – Innovative 7Stac™ disk design enables the world’s highest capacity
  • TCOptimized™ platform – Delivers higher capacity, lower power, cooler and quieter operation in a standard 3.5-inch form factor

Trust the drives trusted by world's major cloud service providers and massive 24/7/365 online transaction processing (OLTP) environments. With the industry-leading reliability  warranty, the Ultrastar® He6 lays the foundation for worry-free data storage. The world's first drive to include HelioSeal technology in the drives lets you store more data than traditional air-filled drives:  Helium in the drives allows HGST to put more platters in the same size enclosure; increasing drive capacity. The innovative HelioSeal innovation in the UltrastarHe6 reduces your TCO because the drives needs less power to operate and cool than air-filled drives. For quality, reliability at a low TCO, trust your data center to HGST.
