Enterprise HDD Reviews
Supermicro’s wide array of SuperServer and SuperStorage solutions deliver unrivalled performance, efficiency, density and reliability for enterprise, data centre, cloud and HPC environments. With Seagate's new portfolio of 8 TB 3.5” Enterprise, we can cost-effectively address expanding web scale storage requirements with the most advanced Green Computing platforms on the market.”
Don Clegg, VP of Marketing & Business Development,
The Seagate v4 has RAID Rebuild functionality built-in. RAID Rebuild, part of the SAS standard, allows communication between the drive and a RAID controller to perform targeted rebuilds. These surgical rebuilds can remove the requirement for rebuilding an entire array."
Paul Alcorn, TweakTown
Seagate claims they achieved those performance gains in part by leveraging the latest SAS interface and by the company’s own efforts to optimise the performance of existing HDD technology. In contrast, rival manufacturers are introducing slower HDDs that make use of helium to increase capacity in a way that winds up driving up the cost per terabyte paid by customers.”
…Seagate boasts of a 25% areal density, rounding out the impressive performance stats. For a nearline enterprise solution, it may not get better than this.”
