Hitachi America Ltd. HUS156045VLS600 hard drive specifications

Hitachi Ultrastar 15K600 HUS156045VLS600 - hard drive - 450 GB - SATA-600 / SAS

The Ultrastar 15K600 can amount to a capacity growth of 33% over its predecessor to keep pace with digital data growth and improve space efficiency in today's data centers. At the same time, sequential performance increased by 23% compared to prior generation to keep data moving faster. The 6Gb/s Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and 4Gb/s Fiber Channel Arbitrated Loop (FCAL) interfaces support the reliability required in the most demanding enterprise computing environments like on-line transaction processing, intensive data analysis, multi-user applications and data warehousing. Compared to its predecessor, power usage is reduced by up to 31% to help reduce the cooling requirements in data centers. In addition, advanced power management feature enables multiple idle modes in order to optimize power usage and save even more on energy costs. The 15K600 also saves money because the larger capacity enables higher data storage density in the current footprint without further expansion of the data center. These eco-friendly features qualify the 15K600 for the EcoTrac classification.
