HGST Ultrastar SSD1600MR, SSD800MH.B, and SSD1600MM Enterprise SSDs Launched

HGST has announced the next-generation of its Ultrastar 12Gb/s SAS SSDs, with capacities up to 1.6TB. The new Ultrastar SSD800MH.B, Ultrastar SSD1600MM, and Ultrastar SSD1600MR SSDs are designed for server and storage systems running today’s performance-sensitive enterprise applications and are capable of boasting sequential throughput up to 1100MB/s read and 765MB/s write as well as up to 130,000 read and 110,000 write IOPS.

  

HGST indicates the new Ultrastar SAS SSDs create new price/performance points by combining their deep enterprise storage expertise developed over the last 50 years, HGST’s customer-proven 12Gb/s SAS technology, and Intel’s 20nm high endurance enterprise-grade MLC NAND. This results in attractive total cost of ownership (TCO) metrics for enterprise applications, such as transactions/$ and transactions/watt, for those measuring such things at scale. 

Features and benefits include:

  • Enterprise-level write endurance –Three options to balance write endurance, write performance, and cost: Ultrastar SSD800MH.B with 25 full random drive writes per day (DW/D), for five years, Ultrastar SSD1600MM with 10 DW/D, and Ultrastar SSD1600MR for read-intensive applications.
  • Highest level of product reliability – Continuing HGST’s industry-leading track record in enterprise storage quality with a reliability specification of 2 million hours MTBF and a five-year limited warranty.
  • Broad range of capacities – Available in capacities of 250GB to 1.6TB for the read-intensive Ultrastar SSD1600MR, 200GB to 1.6TB for the mainstream endurance Ultrastar SSD1600MM, and 100GB to 800GB for the high endurance Ultrastar SSD800MH.B.
  • High performance levels – Supports throughputs of up to 1,100 MB/s along with random read and random write performance of up to 130,000 and 110,000 IOPS, respectively.
  • Choice of security options – A comprehensive set of data security options including Instant Secure Erase (ISE), Self-Encrypting Drives (SED), and TCG enterprise SED with FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standard) 140-2 certification.
