HGST claims to provide a ten times increase in storage density and power efficiency compared to traditional enterprise data centre solutions and a five times increase in storage density and power efficiency, when compared to commonly used scale out Cloud datacentre solutions.
Targeting capacities of over 10 petabytes in a single datacentre rack, its active archive platform leverages industry leading device capacities along with additional points of device affinity that enable enhanced density, performance, efficiency and reliability.
By doing so, the company aims to offer the lowest $/TB and Watts/TB in the highest capacity per rack available.
Active archive platforms can be configured for a complete range of storage architectures including scale out object storage solutions for public and private cloud data centres.
HGST has begun sample delivery of the active archive platform to strategic partners. Complete details and specifications will be available in early 2015.
