HGST Enterprise Storage Experience
HGST leverages decades of proven enterprise storage expertise in Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) design reliability, firmware, customer qualification and system integration to the new Ultrastar™ SSD1000MR solid-state drive (SSD) family. The synergistic relationship between HGST’s new throughput-enhancing SSDs and traditional HDDs provides cost effective, end-to-end enterprise-class storage solutions, delivering reliability, compatibility, capacity, cost and system performance. This combination makes HGST a leading HDD/SSD provider with the experience and technology needed to meet escalating reliability, endurance, and performance in the most demanding enterprise environments.
Maximum Performance, Reliability, and Endurance
The new Ultrastar SSD1000MR delivers high sequential throughput, up to 1200MB/s read and 700MB/s write (12Gb SAS). The Ultrastar SSD1000MR also delivers up to 145,000 read and 20,000 write IOPS, reaching speeds >100 times faster than HDDs and double the speed of current 6Gb SSDs, allowing rapid access to “hot” enterprise data for improved productivity and operational efficiency. The new Ultrastar SSD1000MR family offers significant value in terms of IOPS per Watt, while reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) through low power consumption, efficient cooling and reduced space requirements.
The Ultrastar SSD1000MR family combines enterprise-grade MLC NAND flash memory, advanced endurance management firmware and power loss data management techniques to extend reliability, endurance, and sustained performance over the life of the SSD. The Ultrastar SSD1000MR family achieves an extraordinary 0.44% annual failure rate (AFR) or two million hour mean-time-between-failure (MTBF). The 1000GB capacity Ultrastar SSD endures up to 3.7 Petabytes (PB) of random writes over the life of the drive - the equivalent of writing 2.0 Terabytes (TB) per day for five years.
For complete end-to-end data protection and reliability, the Ultrastar SSD1000MR family incorporates the T10 Data Integrity Field (DIF) standard, extended error correction code (ECC), Exclusive-OR (XOR) parity to protect against flash die failure, parity-checked internal data paths without an external write cache, and an exclusive power loss data management feature that does not require supercapacitors. The Ultrastar SSD1000MR family is backed by a five year limited warranty, or the maximum Petabytes (PB) written (based on capacity).
