Highly Reliable Systems: Removable Disk Backup & Recovery


12TB Hard Drives Available in High-Rely Classic trays and in RAIDPacs

By Darren McBride

Seagate’s new 12TB Enterprise Capacity 3.5 HDD is now the worlds largest drive precision engineered to accommodate 550TB workloads annually. It has a market leading MTBF (mean time between failure) of 2.5 million hours and is designed to operate 24/7 for five years in the most rigorous enterprise data center environments, delivering far greater reliability and the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) for enterprise storage products in the industry.

We have tested this new  drive and found it to work as expected in High-Rely products.  As you would expect, it formats down to less than 12TB but it’s still a monster!  The drive uses helium inside for lower power usage and smoother operation.  When configured in a RAID5 RAIDPac, you will see 24TB of raw storage in a single removable disk.   Ask your sales rep for pricing today
