Western Digital (WD) has pulled the wraps off a new high capacity storage drive that is aimed directly at cloud and enterprise data centers. The new Ultrastar DC HC530 has 14TB of storage capacity, which WD says is the highest capacity conventional magnetic recording hard drive on the market today. The HC530 uses fifth-generation HelioSeal technology and is meant to be perfect for environments where storage density, watt/TB and $/TB are critical. The drive will allow enterprise users to build petabyte-scale infrastructures. WD says that the new HC530 is a follow-on to the 14TB shielded magnetic recording drive, the Ultrastar Hs14. Brendan Collins, vice president of marketing, Devices, Western Digital, said, "Our enterprise and hyperscale cloud customers demand reliability with the highest capacities and densities to deliver the lowest TCO for business-critical applications. Having invented, brought to market and delivered five generations of industry-leading innovations in helium technology, and with more than 27 million drives shipped, our ability to maintain high quality and reliability have made us the trusted partner of top-tier cloud providers, Internet giants and OEMs around the world." WD adds that the HC530 will be offered in both SAS and SATA interfaces, it features a two-dimensional magnetic recording, and an improved dual stage micro actuator for optimal head positioning and rotational vibration robustness. The drive also has a self-encrypting engine integrated and is rated for 2.5M hours MTBF. WD will sell the drive with a 5-year limited warranty and is now offering limited qualification samples to qualified customers. No retail price has been announced at this time.
