HGST's HelioSeal HDD technology is intersecting the HDD market at the right time as enterprise datacenter customers require a clear path to sustained storage TCO reductions. The platform will also ease the way for the integration of future HDD technologies such as SMR, HAMR, or bit-patterned media (BPM) to deliver even higher-capacity disk drive products designed to address an array of diverse enterprise storage applications and use cases, including cold storage solutions.
This white paper demonstrates how HGST’s HelioSeal HDD technology can deliver against the increasing capacity demands of the enterprise and the Cloud whilst also drastically reducing TCO by up to 30%
The delivery of a 12 Gb/s SAS is just the start – SAS has a future roadmap looking at 24 Gb/s and beyond where SATA does not extend beyond 6 Gb/s – and performance above 1 million IOPS is looking more and more possible. The advantages include a future-proofed solution with higher throughput, no compromise on distance and superior value in SANs.
This white paper examines the developments, advantages and future challenges and the significant opportunities for adopters of SAS within the enterprise.
Some SSD benchmark scores can be misleading if they do not reflect long-term performance; SSD benchmark tests should measure the stability of consistent performance over time in real-world environments which reflect enterprise applications and performance demands.
This white paper explores the limitations of existing benchmarks and shows how HGST uses validation testing against real-world applications to ensure the veracity of their claims for high performance enterprise SSD solutions.
