Improve Server Response Times, Double Storage Capacity.

Seagate® Enterprise Performance 15K HDDs leverage a small 2.5-inch form factor to deliver significant performance advantages and power savings over legacy 3.5-inch mission critical drives.

  • Faster transaction processing to help faster time-to-revenue
  • Twice the data storage capacity over previous generation
  • Completes more transactions in less time with TurboBoostTM
  • Enterprise-grade endurance using intelligent NAND management with TurboBoost
  • Improved scalability with the latest 12Gb/s SAS interface
  • Improved reliability with humidity sensor and an AFR of 0.44%
  • Seagate Secure Drives with Instant Secure Erase for easy disposal
OLTP Performance Advantages

Maximum Performance Advantages

Seagate Enterprise Performance 15K HDDs enable faster transaction processing by improving sequential performance over the previous generation and delivering faster random write performance vs. legacy 3.5-inch 15K drives.1 Kick performance into high gear with TurboBoost enhanced cache models accelerating I/O operations and optimizing response times even during peak hours.

  • Up to 18% increase in sequential data rate and up to 29% faster random write performance2
  • Accelerate hot data in mixed workloads up to 3× faster with TurboBoost enhanced cache models
  • Up to 19× faster response times with TurboBoost models
  • Predictable performance even when demand spikes
  • Improved scalability with 12Gb/s SAS interface

1480 vs. 160 IOPS (4K Q=16). Actual improvement varies depending on queue depth and transfer size.
2Compared to previous generation.
 

12Gb/s SAS Enterprise HDDs Are Perfect for:

  • Building high-performance servers that host warm and hot data in the most demanding application environments
  • Reducing latencies for significantly faster, predictable response times
  • Creating blade, rack or tower servers to host transaction-based applications
  • Delivering solutions for power- and space-constrained data centers
  • Upgrading systems for increased data security and easy drive retirement
  • Transitioning from legacy 3.5-inch systems to more efficient 2.5-inch solutions
  • Improving TCO by minimizing system complexity and reducing operating costs

Data Security Options with Seagate Secure Technology

Enterprise Performance 15K hard drives combine unsurpassed reliability and data protection with industry-leading security features like:

  • Seagate Instant Secure Erase for easy drive retirement eliminates the need to physically destroy hard drives
  • Secure data-at-rest helps comply with corporate and federal data security mandates
  • FIPS SED options help secure Sensitive but Unclassified and Protected class data1
  • When unexpected power loss occurs, protect data from corruption with TurboBoost enhanced cache models
  • Protection Information (PI)2 technology to help protect data integrity

1 Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) and FIPS-validated drives are not available in all models or countries. May require TCG-compliant host or controller support. TM: A Certification Mark of NIST, which does not imply product endorsement by NIST, the U.S., or Canadian governments. FIPS in review.
2 Protection Information (PI) requires PI compliant host or controller support.
