The Seagate® Enterprise Capacity 2.5 HDD (formerly Constellation.2™) is the only 2.5-inch enterprise-class hard drive delivering both 1TB capacities and enterprise reliability at the industry’s lowest power consumption for storage-hungry nearline applications. Self-Encrypting Drive (SED) and FIPS 140-2 Validated™ SED security options available to help you protect your data.*

  • Maximizes data center footprint with up to 76TB per square foot
  • Energy efficient storage at under 3.9 watts (idle)
  • Highest nearline reliability with an MTBF of 1.4M hours
  • 6Gb/s performance in both SAS and SATA interfaces
Constellation Overview

Unparalleled HDD Power Savings

Enterprise Capacity 2.5 HDDs reduce per-gigabyte cooling and energy costs by packing high capacities into an SFF, low-power-consumption drive.

Included Seagate® PowerChoice™ technology can further reduce energy costs by empowering IT organizations to tailor systems for optimal performance and power consumption. This results in power savings of up to 54% over traditional 3.5–inch drives, and  potentially operating at 1.1W when idle. PowerChoice is based on the T10-compliant power management standard.

Big Storage for Small Spaces

Enterprise Capacity 2.5 HDDs can help you deploy additional enterprise storage without expanding your data center.

With its 15mm z-height, the 1TB model is the first 2.5-inch hard drive capacity-optimized for dense, space-constrained data centers. This model can help you store twice as much data in the same footprint, supporting up to 76TB of storage per square foot. Also features for nearline storage:

  • Enterprise-class firmware and best-in-class rotational vibration tolerance maximize system availability and performance in multi-drive systems
  • Choose 6Gb/s SAS for improved data integrity, scalability over long distances and fastest data access
  • The SATA 6Gb/s interface is ideal for fast, economical nearline (Tier2) performance

Save Money with Secure Self-Encryption and Secure Erase

Enterprise Capacity 2.5 HDD Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) are TCG-compliant and can improve data-at-rest security and reduce drive retirement costs. The SEDs meet regulatory data security compliance requirements and are FIPS 140-2 Validated™ to protect Sensitive but Unclassified and Protected class data.*

Moreover, Seagate Instant SecureEraseTM technology renders all data on the SED unreadable in less than a second. Learn more about Seagate secure disk erase deployment options >

*Self-Encrypting Drives (SED) and FIPS 140-2 Validated drives are not available in all models or countries. See Seagate Encrypting Drives Import/Export Compliance. May require TCG-compliant host or controller support.

Saves energy and money.

Constellation.2™ hard drives deliver the lowest power consumption in the industry.These hard drives also operate at just 3.9W when idle;which can be further reduced to an astounding 1.1W with enhanced PowerChoice™ technology options.

Purpose-built for enterprise environments, PowerChoice is based on the T10-compliant power management standard.This technology enables you to tailor the Constellation.2 hard drive’s settings for optimal performance and energy usage. The result: power savings of up to 54% over traditional 3.5–inch drives.

Simply put,Constellation.2 hard drives deliver the lowest power usage ever offered in an enterprise-class nearline drive–without any performance degradation.
