First 2Tb 6Gbps SAS Drive
The drives have been designed for multi-drive 7200-RPM nearline environments and come in three different capacities: 500Gb, 1Tb and 2Tb, supporting up to 76Tb per square foot.
According to Seagate, the Constellation ES drives offer best-in-class reliability, leading 6Gb/s SAS or SATA 3Gb/s performance, PowerChoice optimised power and cooling technology, and a US government-grade security optionâ€”all backed by Seagate.
Carla Kennedy, vice president, Seagate Enterprise Product Line Management, said, “Nearline is the fastest-growing segment in enterprise storage and Seagate is committed to meeting the market demands of its OEM and system integrator partners in this space.
“Seagate’s leadership in technology development, volume manufacturing and supply chain execution has resulted in an exemplary next-generation nearline solution. The Constellation ES drive tackles the concerns of shrinking IT budgets, floor space constraints and energy consumption, efficiently and cost-effectively,” she said.
